Never have I thought of selling shoes at the Chinese New Year Fair at Chinatown Point. Oh Yes! It’s happening to me right now! I was helping my friend at the shoe stall.
To be honest, I was curious about how it would feel like to sell shoes. That is my character, a curious Gemini! Our shoe stall opens from 10 am to 10 pm daily till 29 Jan 2014.

Oh tats me! Selfie photo when I was having my break time.
That afternoon, the weather was very hot ! Lucky I brought along my manual fan.
Despite the hot weather, I got to enjoy myself that day.
I got to talk to different people – tourist, office worker etc during lunch time. Housewives, students and granny who spoke Cantonese.
Luckily, my dialect is Cantonese and I can speak well, thanks to my grandparents who practised the language with me since young.
We have bring in a lot of new design shoes.
Come and visit our shoe stall if you haven’t buy your new year shoe yet.

My mind starts to think how do I feel about that day? Knowing that setting up a stall is a tough work. You have to impart money, your time, put in extra effort and everything you have to do on your own.
Like before the stall is opened, we have to display our shoes. Make sure you know how to find your shoe in your stock asap to prevent customer from waiting. Arrange your stock in such a way that we can walk around without injuring ourselves. Check cashier machine that we have sufficient small notes and coins before start to sell.
When a customer visits your stall, you have to make them feel welcome, hear what are their needs and provide advice to them. You need to be patience and like your job. Maybe I like shoes that’s why I been wanting to sell shoes. Interacting with the customer is very important, that way you will know what your customer wants and deliver to them. Dfferent types of customer you will encounter, and endure the hot sun of the day. When rain, you have to move your things to dry area.
At the end of the day, we need to do a report of our sales and hopefully you are earning a profit of each day rental fee. I find joy working with my friends in the stall. So if you haven’t bought your new year shoes or thinking of getting a new shoe, come over to our stall.The shoes we are selling are cheaper than those selling at the shopping mall but our design is the same, so why spend more if you can get a better deal with us.
