ice-cream-truck

Greetings and meet my ice cream truck!

voters

I’m kidding, I just chanced upon that while heading to my first appearance. I was at MidValley last Saturday on the 3rd of November to giveaway more than 100+ ice cream scoops in cones and cups. It was supposed to be my first appearance and I’ll learn more from this for my second appearance, which is this weekend! :)

baskinrobbins elections

I started setting up at around 2:30 pm and I had unfortunately only brought 1 notebook along for voting. This created a huge bottleneck there as people who wanted to vote got tired of waiting. I shall have to do something about this for the next one.

I’ll bring another notebook to the next session so there will be more “voting stations”, so to speak. It is an election after all. ;)

vote me

I have allocated all of my budget to giving away free ice cream and ice cream cakes. I decided to “get on the ground” (yup, lots of political terms here going on here) and get the attention of passerby’s by telling them about it. Haha. I wanted all of the budget to go towards ice cream for everyone! :D

br flavor elections

Actually, that was A LOT of fun. Now I know how those credit card sales promoters feel like. I have been rejected before I even opened my mouth but on the other hand there were plenty who heard my pitch and request for votes and actually wanted to vote for me after I’ve explained what I was doing.

voting station

It was very heartwarming to see Sue Ann and Jamie helping with getting people and manning the voting station (which is a grand term for my notebook), even Samantha from Baskin-Robbins pitched in to help – many thanks for all that! :)

The first person!

I’ve been looking at the opinion polls on the Baskin-Robbins Malaysia Facebook page and it’s good to see a lot of people participating in that too. This is actually going to be taken into consideration so your input would be awesome!

opinion poll

I voted for Exotic – sea salt ice cream or hot & spicy. It would be great to see more unique flavors in Baskin-Robbins here.

I’ll love to eat a steak flavored ice cream! How about that? An ice cream flavor that tastes like a meal! Heh! It would certainly be intriguing.

…or even better, see something like a limited time promotional flavor for Christmas – turkey with cranberry sauce! Won’t that be something? I bet people would want to try it just out of curiosity. I certainly would! :)

There are also other opinion polls ranging from what CSR activities you want Baskin-Robbins Malaysia to do to what kind of promotion you think gives you the best value for your buck. Join in if you want your voices heard!

vote for me

I’ll be having another appearance at Baskin-Robbins Sunway Pyramid this Sunday 11th November where I will not only give out ice cream cones and scoops for free but also ice cream cake vouchers at random!

The ice cream cakes are sold at RM 55 each and you can redeem it right there and then if you want.

campaign-promise

In addition to the 500 free Junior ice cream scoops I’m giving away, those 30 ice cream cakes will bring the total to RM 4,400 worth of Baskin-Robbins ice cream products (that’s not including the service charge). I told you all my campaign fund is going to spreading happiness. :)

…and that’s surprisingly what I felt good about the most – the people who waited in line to vote after listening to what I’m doing and the people who came for ice cream. It felt good giving away ice cream especially when someone told me how grateful she was coz she’ll never be able to spend her money on this. I was touched by that.

Anyway, if you want some of the ice cream cake action, I’ve got several to give out at random at my next appearance:

Venue: Baskin-Robbins, Sunway Pyramid
Date: 11th November (Sunday)

    • Heh! Yeah, it’ll be fun to have you over mate.

      Good thing there is a Baskin-Robbins in Ipoh at least. :)

      Thanks for participating in the contest, you should be getting the voucher tomorrow via mail.

      Cheers buddy! :)

  4. Me want cookies & cream but me not @ KL T_T

    • Hello Nath! :)

      Oh well, I’ll be giving away the ice cream vouchers in person now, too bad you can’t make it for the Sunway Pyramid one this Sunday.

      I’ll be there 3-5 pm.

      I’m actually thinking about doing one outside of KL, like in Penang for example…

      …reaching out to the Northern part of the state so to speak. Heh.

      Cheers! :)

  5. When is my beloved one utama getting some action? I can join your “campaign” crew be the briber hahaha

    • Haha! I haven’t scheduled 1 Utama yet, planning to make some changes.

      I’ll definitely be at Sunway Pyramid this Sunday though.

      Come join me if you’re free – I’m there 3-5 pm! :D

      Thanks Tammy!

  6. wah!!!! irresistable i wan ice cream & ice cream cake ^_^
    voted for you * all the BEST *

    • Thanks for the vote and support Kelly! :)

      It’s much appreciated. Cheers for that!

      Come get some ice cream if you’re around the area.

      Thanks again for the vote! :)

  7. It’s great to know that a lot of people turned up for the giveaway. =) I think you might need at least three notebooks for the election – because there are lots of people in Pyramid during the weekends.

    Like I mentioned above, I’ll try to present myself if I can get my Mom to swing by there.

    • Hello Ciana! :)

      Well, I can only spare 2 notebooks unfortunately…

      It would be interesting to do Sunway Pyramid though, I’m not there often but the first time I was there was when I was in college!

      I visited my friends in KL who were doing college at Sunway/Monash – a pit stop from Melbourne to Sibu and they brought me there.

      It seems like eons ago.

      Looking forward to seeing you there Ciana! :)

  8. More ice cream! I’m gonna catch you in SP then!

    • Awesome! :)

      Come look for me when you’re in Sunway, I’ve got a couple of ice cream cake vouchers to give away in addition to the ice cream cones and cups too!

      I’ll be there 3-5 pm, it’ll be good to have people drop by.

      See ya then! :D

  9. Me want ice cream!

    • Hello Jess! :)

      Come, come, there’s a lot of ice cream to be had – Sunway Pyramid is a lot further than I usually go but I want to explore that area (and also the Northern states – Penang caught my eye).

      I’ll be there 3-5 pm on Sunday, so if you want free ice cream, just drop by then.

      Cheers! :)

  10. This sounds like so much fun!!! Keep up the good work! :D

    • Heh! Yeah, it’s quite fun to be doing all this to be honest!

      I want to go to Penang if possible too – quite a few people there have been asking if I’m going Northern states and it’ll be good to make an appearance there.

      Thanks Charmaine! :D

  11. HB, it great you got to do this promotion for Baskin Robbins. Here in San Francisco they every year would have all Baskin Robbins shops give away free ice cream cones for many hours. I always line up outside the shop since it so near to my home.

    • Interesting!

      They have that promotion every year in San Francisco? Well, since it’s so close to your place, it’ll be fun.

      I’m planning to make a little trip of my own to Penang – canvass the Northern states a bit.

      There’s a good amount of people there and it’ll be interesting.

      Cheers! :)

  12. really nice one here.. i’m so out of touch recently

  13. How I wish I’m in KL… never eat BR before

    • Yeah, it’ll be good if you were here last time! :)

      No worries, I’ll be doing this again the week after for my very last appearance. I’m hoping to do it in Penang.

      Cheers and have a great weekend Sherrie! :D
