hello peeps! sorry for the late upload of the photos from the bazaar! we had intended to make a post last night, but alas, i was too choked from all that celebrative food and drinks after the very successful event!
all in all, it was GREAT fun. frankly, i was quite prepared to sell nothing but just be filled with glee being surrounded by Akina, Akina, and more Akina goods! the stall was easily one of the nicest with Ranbi and Kenji’s efforts! why how can it not be when the first thing that greets you is that bloody gorgeous Raka Ryushui poster!?!? man, she looked absolutely perfect in it!
the day passed by very quickly ‘cos we were blasting Akina throughout the day, with Raka Ryushui getting the most "airplay". hahahah. but we had to vy with the other old uncle who was playing his vinyls through his loud gramaphone. we only had two tiny cardboard speakers!! hmmmph!
sales was pretty brisk. we sold other merchandise other than Akina wares of course. Ranbi’s Teresa Teng goods sold particularly well. quite a windfall. so he treated us to dins! i was peddling my undesirable CDs (such as Ayumi Hamasaki) at $1 per piece! i went with two big bags and was left with one at the end of the bazaar.
many passers-by were acquainted with Akina. quite a few spoke audibly to their friends-in-tow that they used to listen to her…she used to be very famous…one even went as far as to say we were trying to relive our childhood! hello? you auntie! you older than us okay? you then relive your childhood. hahaha.
what amazed me was this pair of grandpas…one spoke in cantonese…"neh, li gor lor…koey hai zhong san meng choi leh…yi qin hou hong ge…"
to which i replied with zest, "hai er…hou hong er!"
i tried hot-selling one of my favourite singles "Everlasting Love" to one of the buyers, played him some…but he didn’t like it. =( hmmmph! how dare you! hahaha. i bok you until you Raka Ryushui then you know ah! hahahaha. kidding!!! of course not everyone loves Everlasting Love. that’s why i love it. hahahaha.
as you can see, i’m still delirious with joy from my harvest from yesterday’s bazaar. we ended up buying things from one another! hahaha. and i scooped alotta Akina stuff as well.
one lucky auntie managed to grab a full set of 45RPMs of Akina’s singles for a steal! (i shan’t reveal the price Ranbi agreed on…but suffice to say, it was quite a shocker to both Kenji and myself!!!!!)
for those who missed this bazaar, we’ll be staging another one this coming Sunday. same venue!! those who regretted not buying more stuff, visit us again while we prowl our shelves for more good stuff to sell!
