A Pirate on Halloween

Yohan is a reluctant trick or treater this year.  He told me that he didn't want to join the Halloween village party this year. I respected his decision to stay home but he gave in to my request to go trick or treating. Jules and I went to the clubhouse to show our support for the event organizers then went back home to pick him up.

Yohan was already dressed up as a pirate when we arrived. He has always been fascinated with pirates, particularly Captain Jack Sparrow.  He never gets tired of watching the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Yohan even brings the DVDs whenever he rides the car.

Jules and I accompanied Yohan around the village for Trick or Treat. I noticed that he wasn't that excited to collect sweets like he used to when he was younger.  I guess my little boy or rather my young man is growing up fast.

Yohan's Gift

I was so touched when Yohan gave me this stuffed toy giraffe last Saturday.  He won it at Shakey's Fun Zone. 

After lunch, Yohan asked me for some money to exchange for game tokens.  He usually plays his favorite car racing arcade game but he told me later that when he spotted "The Claw" in one corner of the room, he suddenly thought of me.  He gave up his favorite game and used his tokens to win me a stuffed toy. 

I named her Mara. It's a long story but the name is not inspired by the soap opera Mara Clara. ha!ha! Anyway, I will always cherish this sweet gift from my son.

Invitation for Story Telling

I was recently been invited by my son's former preschool teacher to be part of the Reading Festival in school this coming October 25. I have been requested to read a story of my choice to Kindergarten students during the festival. I love reading to my son but this is the first time that I'll be reading to a whole class. The parents of the Kindergarten students are also invited to watch. I admit I'm a little nervous but excited at the same time. I'm still looking for the perfect story. Something short but interesting enough to capture the attention of the kids. I might ask Jules to help me make some props for the story.

Basics of a Retail Clothing Shop

A retail clothing shop has become a lucrative business in this modern society where fashion plays a significant role in day to day life. If you’re interested in fashion, putting up your own retail clothing store is a promising business venture. Take time to create a business plan to study the different aspects of the business such as store location, store concept, product lines, marketing strategies, competition, and other important factors. The location of the store can be vital in the success of your retail clothing shop. Choose an area with high traffic to easily attract potential customers. Remember that the type of goods that you choose to sell will have a great impact on your store image. It is essential to choose quality clothing products to earn a good reputation among customers. If clients are satisfied, they are likely to return to your store to make repeat purchases and they may also refer you to their family and friends. Customers appreciate a clean and organized store. Countertop Retail Displays can help enhance the look of the store and give clients a better view of products offered in the shop. Give shoppers an opportunity to browse through your product lines with ease and comfort. Customers can conveniently look for clothes that they like if they have easy access to clothing racks and display tables. Train your staff to be courteous and helpful to customers.
