Slithering its way to the showroom June 6, 2008Posted by asianpixmen in Activities, Malaysia, Miscellaneous, Nature, Places.
I have become accustomed to many gimmicks and techniques used by the experts in promoting their wares and products over the decades. But still, I was taken aback recently when I came across a glass window of a clothing shop in Petaling Street.
Slithering among the jeans and a mannequin was an albino python. Naturally, it was alive and well. If its purpose was to attraction attention, I dare say it succeeded very well.
Such an unusual going-on can only stop curious pedestrians in their tracks. Frankly, I was wondering if the nature society was pleased by this subtle exploitation of a life form.
On my second visit, I noticed the python was no longer around. Well, it was a good gimmick while it lasted. No need to go to the nearest pet shop to see some of Nature’s finest. Apparently, some of them have gone into business of their own…. Sorry about that pun.
