Don't trust adverts



You got to love these guys... A TV commercial for La Prestige, Lohas Park, Tseung Kwan O... And you can see the Singapore Flyer @ 0:18... Not clear enough? Take a look @ 0:22... You probably can see the Ritz Carlton... Singapore...

ha ha. My kids were exposed to commercial television for the first time this vacation. Everytime an advert came on my son cried out "don't listen to it. Don't believe what they say. They're just trying to sell you something" pretty perceptive for a 6 year old.

Advertisements can be educational and useful information. But your boy's right, at the end of the day they are just trying to sell you something~ In fact, everywhere we look there will be billboards, posters, signboards, handouts with a message that says sell.

The La Prestige advert using the Singapore skyline? That's selling without prestige...

Apparently, the air there is foul-smelling too, cos there's a landfill in the vicinity.

There must be a special place in Hell reserved for these property developers, their marketers and those who come up with the "artist impressions".

I'm not going to touch on whether they will be going to hell but someone ought to say something like "Hey this is not right!" and put an end to all these flagrant mis-information.

Suppose I'm an investor who bought the property based on the brochure, floorplan and video advert, how conned will I get?
