HELP! HELP! HELP! My car has just run out of water for the radiator. A bottle of water would help solve the problem. I have left my phone number on the windscreen. You can contact me when you have returned from the tap.

I am sure many of us have seen this scenario many times but we just pushed it aside because it is of no significance. Yet it is all over the country from Perlis to Sabah; from kampong to Bandaraya.Somehow it seems to record certain meaning attracting people to do the exact thing correctly.

Now what's happened? Can all these cars have possibly run out of petrol or engine oil? Then how come they are all parked near to one another? Come to think of it, whatever items we place on the vehicle's roof would it give a definite meaning and thus get the feedback? I am thankful if readers will share their experience of observing similar situations outside Malaysia.

From what I know, the plastic bottles on top of the cars means "this car is for sale. interseted, pls call to talk about price"

Sdr Azizi,
True as you said. But then who in the world started this and when did this approach begin in the country? I don't ever remember seeing such 'method' in our neighbor Thailand.Thanks


Pak Non,

Everything has its beginning.In this case I presume either the foreman or salesman.

Moga sihat wal afiat.
