We covered those halls that we have not covered on the first two days. The first stop is at the fine food section. Some random pictures taken and I won't elaborate much.
This is interesting. A vending machine selling Nibble Time peanuts and rice crackers. I told BIG BOSS this item got potential here. We can sell into cinema, bus station, train station, tourist centre, etc... but when we enquire about pricing ..... in Netherlands they are selling at EU1.00 in the retail outlets. If we were to bring into Malaysia, the whole can of 45gm will cost something like RM5.00 ! Really crazy who will buy then. Got to drop this idea.
We left Koelnmesse at about 3 pm and BIG BOSS mentioned since me and GS first time visit Cologne, he would like to bring us to try out one of the famous restaurant for the Pork Knuckles again and also visit the DOM ( Cathedral ) in Cologne, right next to the train station.
We took a train there and it is about 10 mins journey.
Oops ! It is not a statue. Its a real human.
Sis was lucky cos there is a LV boutique next to the Cathedral. While having dinner at the FRUH, I ask BIG BOSS whether can he give me 20 minutes cos I need to go to LV to get some handbags for sis. Then he started to ask me, izzit cheap here and I told him it is supposed so. So the 3 uncles followed me there. Guess what happened ? All of us bought the LV bags and wallets there.
My BIG BOSS asked me to help him to choose the handbags for him.... please ah not for me ah don't misunderstood... hihihi... for his wife la. Rich man really rich man.... bought 2 handbags and 2 wallet and lagi keng no need to see the price one. GM bought one too for his wife .... but Ah Neh uncle got bad taste and I think the handbag very ' lou tou'.
Me.... wanted to get the NEVERFULL but sis and Joe say its a cheapskate one not evergreen one. So only get for sis and her friend Jane... the Speedy 30 ( EURO 430 ) and Damier Zippy Wallet ( EURO 405 ). After second round of thinking... end up I also get one Monogram Zippy Wallet for EURO 405. I still prefer COACH la, going to get sis to get for me a handbag when she is going to US next Feb'08.
After 1 hour in LV boutique, we walk along the shopping street and get some souveniers and some interesting cooking items at the supermarket whereby you can't find here in Malaysia. Will blog later on what I buy there.
Its time to go back to the hotel. In the train both BIG BOSS and GM are making fun with the LV bags. In total, 3 of us spend almost RM30,000 in the LV boutique and off course the most one is BIG BOSS la. Somemore GM told me, if he come back to Malaysia and people say the handbag is fake he is going to taruk that fellow upside down.
Then there is this joke BIG BOSS told us, his friend go to Petaling Street ( Chi Cheong Kai ) to get a fake LV wallet for a ang moh friend from Oz. The fake one ah, come with a LV box plus a note inside stated ..... "If you are not satisfied with the quality, please contact www.louisvuitton.com". All of us laugh like hell in the train.
It's time to pack my luggage, tomorrow morning I am going to catch the earliest train to Amsterdam. GS will be flying off from Frankfurt back to Malaysia, me to Amsterdam, GM and BIG BOSS going to Vienna to meet up a potential principal.
***** Amsterdam -Day 5 coming up soon *****
once I am back from my JB business trip on Saturday
