My company will be captivate Sdn. Bhd . I'm currently working for Fernleaf KUAT milk powder sampling job . I will be working for this weekend , and next weekend at Tesco Mutiara Damansara from 12pm to 9pm . Come find me for lunch or dinner if you happen to be at Tesco Mutiara Damansara .

So , every morning , i have to walk in through Tesco staff entrance , get a promoter pass from th guard , then go up to the store room and take out my booth / counter , set it up , then push to Tesco Fernleaf shelf there . Then , i got to wash the dispenser , cylinder and the stirrer at the basin which located behind the selling fish part there. It is so smelly at there , but what to do , i just got to tahan . Then , after wash all the thing and put it at my small counter / booth , i need to go to buy 6 bottle of 1.5 mineral water , then go out and enter the staff entrance to get the sticker from the security to placed on the mineral water . Then , i will go back to my booth / counter and pour 3 bottle of mineral water and 2 packet of Fernleaf KUAT into the dispenser and then mixed it with stirrer . Then , i will need to go take ice from the kitchen behind the selling fish place , got to smell the smelly stink smell again . After get the ice , put into a plastic , then put the ice into the cylinder . Then lastly put the cylinder into the dispenser . Then , it is ready to serve to small cup for people to drink . 

My  Fernleaf KUAT booth / counter

I learn something on the first day of my work . A big issues happen on the first day i work for my first sampling job . The dispenser they provide for me leaked and the milk spill out like fountain , luckily there's a supervisor with me to solve the issues. The supervisor say i am lucky to experience this on my first day . lol . At last , my company changed a dispenser for me . But 2 packet of Fernleaf KUAT is wasted.

Now , let me tell you what is Fernleaf KUAT . Fernleaf Kuat is a milk for all human age above 1 years old . It have formula 3T , Tulang , Tubuh , dan Tenaga with 18 type of nutrien. It help you to build strong bone , strengthen your muscle , and give you energy for your daily activities . The Fernleaf Kuat is kurang manis , but tetap lazat .The sukrose sugar had been eplace with lactose so that it is not too sweet . And the Fernleaf KUAT is for the whole family . It is valuable as you can save RM 2.90 compare to other brand in the market .

Fernleaf KUAT

Oh yea , i saw so many type of customer . Well , typical Malaysian , got free stuff sure take ,right ? 

Typical Malaysian customer 1 : Parents ask children to keep take the milk to drink . 
Many parents keep ask their children take the milk and drink when they know is free drink . And they just walk away like that after drinking . 

Typical Malaysian customer 2 : Parents want to save milk at home .
A chinese woman keep ask her children to drink few cup of the milk , and tell her husband that the children drink the milk until full , then can no need make milk for their children when they back at home . They thought i milk supplier kah . 

Typical Malaysian customer 3 : Same person keep coming to my booth .
I saw few customer keep come to take my milk repeatedly .So greedy .  I'm good in recognizing people yo.

Typical Malaysian customer 4 : keep refilled the milk 
I saw few customer keep refill the milk after finish drinking 1 cup of my milk when i not at the booth . So greedy . 

Typical Malaysian customer 5 : take for wife , husband , chiildren etc.
Got few customer took few cup of milk and give to husband , wife and children . Imagine ,if she / he got 4 children , 4 cup gone to a family . And worst thing , they just drink and cabut . Didn't even bother to listen to my product and didn't buy .

Typical Malaysian customer 6 ; Throw other brand of sampling cup into my dustbin.
This 1 i hate the most . The dustbin we have is already so small , and some inconsiderate people still go and throw so many other brand sampling cup and make my dustbin easily full . 

Typical Malaysian customer 7 : want empty sampling cup for the baby to play with .
Got a customer ask me whether can i give her few sampling cup for her baby to play , what i'm going to use if i give the sampling cup to her . And plus , it is quite wasted for the sampling cup to be use like that . 

Typical Malaysian customer 8 : Bring a bottle for the milk . 
Got a customer ask whether she can bring 1.5 liter botlle to fill in the free milk and keep it at home and slowly drink . So greedy. Of course we say cannot . Again , we are not milk supplier.

And today got a little malay girl call me uncle when ask for the milk , am i that old ? lol 

Frustrated right ? is a love hate relationship when come to this issue . If you are a consumer , sure you will love it and will grab the free drinks a lot . But if you are the promoter , you will hate it and feel frustrated that they try the product but didn't buy it.

But overall, i still like this new job.So , people come find me next weekend at Tesco Mutiara Damansara ya.

Till then , bye .

  7. Now, I know it's hard to work as a promoter... I thought it's easy just pour milk and let people drink or buy. I didn't know we have to see those rude attitudes...
