Camera Shy

It's not easy to get people to pose for us. I usually get something ready as a gift before I propose a shot. This customer of mine was very easily approached. I told him that I was going to give him a shopping bag from Lipton since he bought Lipton tea. But he had to pose for me with the bag. 

He was ever ready. Smile! Click!
And I gave him my shop's facebook page site.


Since Hari Raya is just around the corner, I am also giving some Raya packets to my customers.
This customer was glad to receive the packets and jokingly asked as if there's any duit raya.
Smile and please share it with your friends.



But not everyone likes to be on camera. This customer was given the recipe books and the shopping bag but she refused to show her face. Well, it's fine provided that she didn't mind me taking a picture of the vegetarian food that she bought together with the gift.

She was happy and I'm glad that this was the first step for me to promote the vegetarian food as I had promised the boss of the Yishensu Industries. He gave me those gifts to be given out to limited customers. So customers have to buy some vegetarian food before they are given the gift. That's fair, right?

  1. Not all folks are sporting enough but seems like you have fun.

  2. Yes, it is only fair that they have to buy the vegetarian food before getting the gift. Your shop sure sells a variety of items. Good for your customers. They can get everything they need in your shop, no need to go to a few places.

  3. yeah, it always depends on how confident or sporting the person is to pose for the camera.. some would happily do, some would need to be persuaded, some would totally refuse to do so.. anyway, as long as they are your happy customer, i think that would be the best thing for you.. :)

  10. In return they eventually received a gift from you. That's a very good idea.

    1. So many types of stuff to be given to your customers, they sure like free gifts. You must have tried many of the products. I heard Top washing powder is good, I have been using Attack and wanted to change to Top brand. Have you tried both of these brands?

    2. If any products come with free gifts I will sure have a look, buy or not buy is another thing. So far i only collected free containers, shopping bag, plates and mugs as free gifts from purchases.

  22. Yea, some people are born camera shy, especially if a stranger or a not-so-close person takes the photo.

  23. I don't think those guys were easy to be approached. It must be your kind looks and magnetic aura that could even turn a stubborn monkey into an obedient person. Wakakakaka

  24. So far I have observed all your customers' photos here and in Facebook. They all looked very contented and happy! Who doesn't like freebies??? You are making people happy everyday.

  25. I strongly support the idea to promote vegetarian food as people are eating too much toxic meat these days. The cancer patients have increased in the world.
