|Shop Owner：||Special offer for dried abalones!|
|Old Woman：||Oh, it’s a good deal. May I have a look?|
|Shop Owner：||How smart you are! Hold on please.|
She looks like a rich housewife. Let’s coax her to switch to the more expensive ones.
Madam, actually that one is not that great.
Let me introduce another best quality abalone to you.
|Old Woman：||I still prefer the one with special offer. Can I have a look?|
|Shop Owner：||Forget about that! With an extra thousand dollar, you will have this abalone gift set.|
