Posted: August 14, 2007 in Jalan-Jalan


Tanjung Aru, is a small town located at the south of Kota Kinabalu city centre, Tanjung Aru was used to be my favourite spot for ‘lepak-lepak main game’ when i was on secondary 1 back in 15 years ago (wah! I’m getting old) , seems nothing much changing, the buildings.. some are still like the same old one, only the shops keep changing. If you’ve not notice on this classic town there’s one affordable and friendly neighborhood hotel was open.. the Megah D’Aru Hotel, located at exactly in Tanjung Aru township, after the round-about turn right pass the bus stop + pos office building, go straight further until the last junction, make a left turn then go a bit straight and the hotel will be on your left.

Almost anything you can find it here.. from local foods and drinks, souvenirs, local handicrafs, clothes, fruits, pets, women + men accesories, shoes and so on.. Here I summarize a brief stuff that you would find at Gaya Street Fair from A-Z..


The Power of advertising..

Promo Advertising
I went for a house shopping Last weekend on Giant Supermarket in Putatan, formerly known as Bestmart Putatan. Bought lots of ‘makan-makan’ things.. well, the so called Giant Supermarket ‘The Lowest Price Everyday’ is not so lowest price that day tommorow and everyday..


Not like Giant in kehel la, the price here seems like RM0.30 – RM0.70 cents price different to be more expensive compare to other shopping francise in KK. When i came to the chocolate sections (my favs section) I stumble upon into something that I thought was cool for a promo of RM5 chocolate.


It’s Vochelle chocolate.. used 12″ TFT Screen for their chocolate products promo.. Hmmm..jakun tul when i saw this thing (for few seconds), the screen played the advertisement of Vochelle chocolate that we used to watch on tv.. plus the screen comes with sound!


but it seems I cannot find where they put the player console.. hmm, must be bertapuk dalam-dalam.


When talk about the functionality, not so effective, maybe becaused I bought Kitkat instead of this Vochelle itself.. btw great advertising promo though!
