I remembered, once, my colleagues said. “price ain’t lie, harga ngga bohong” , to resemble saying costly stuff comes with good quality. When you drag yourself from ISX building to Sumitmas Plaza with your WMO shoes,it will probably bite your feet compare to Clark shoes for instance. (well, I will probably take Kopaja P 19 though) ^_^.
Or the quality (sound) from China MP3 player versus IPOD Shuffle?
sometime ago, I heard someone said..errr…or probably I read in someone’s blog, one will gain more confident if she/he wears branded stuff. Some people think she/he look better once they put brand stuffs on and willing to pay (much much) more. I don’t have to draw you a picture between Clark vs WMO shoes, do I?
Look at the crowd from Metro Dept. 70% -one-day-only- Sale , few months ago (well, I didn’t go there, colleagues of mine said so, I can’t stand the crowd anymore :p),
Is it because the buyers were expecting they can pay branded stuff for cheaper price to boast their confident later on or some people are just being consumtive?
The first figure isn’t wrong, though!
Then I also remembered a saying in my favorite movie “KUNG FU PANDA”.
Learning that was nothing in the Dragon Scrawls, Shifu asked his students to evacuate the villagers including
PO, the new dragon warrior.
When PO get home, he met is father, who was about to leave , dragging his noodle soup’s stall along.
His father feel firm as a rock (anyway, do we have the prase “firm as a rock?” heheheh) , he can sell the famous noodle shop somewhere else. His father shared him a big secret – his soup’s secret ingredients.
In PO’s surprise, his father whispered there were no Secret Ingredients.
To make something special you have to believe it is special .
Ok,if I may analogize to look (or feel?) well groom you have to believe you are well groom (even you ain’t wear branded-as long as it is functioning as it is suppose to be- is fine to you).
Compare these two scenaries, which type are you?
PS : there was my friend (let say his/her name is A) had little chit chat with me. She/he was wearing neck strap from Hard Rock Cafe – Bali.
Then another friend (B) came to us. He/She claimed him/herself to be the real “Hardrocker-ean”, collects every single HRC’s stuff. Never seen the neck strap that A was wearing before, B asked A :
“Is your HRC’s neckstrap genuine?”
Puhleasseee, HRC neck strap only cost Rp 50.000,- why bother? I mean I won’t bother If B aksked. A “is your Gucci wallet,genuine?” :p
See- for some people brand does matter!
