    They were so excited for the event, they woke up and got ready early for the event.  My son doesn’t want to missed out, he supposedly attending his weekly kololo training in Seri Mengasih but i thought this is a good social skill training.

    Once we reach the venue, set up their so called booth, combined with her friends the items they are selling.  I teach them how to do inventory list, preparing their petty cash, listing down quantity and price of items.

    Waiting For Customers

    They were waiting.. and waiting anxiously ..  i can hear them talking to each other “come lets see what they are selling”..”ada jual food” they were busy talking, so i decided to walk around with Sean.  Sean bought foods.. yay! spaghetti for breakfast.

    No Business Owner! No Customers!

    Coming back from our shopping spree with Sean.  Surprise! there is nobody at the booth ! what!? I decided to find and remind them their duty and responsibility.

    The Taukeh!

    I asked Sean to be the ‘tauke’ for the day.  Don’t he look like one nice taukeh? Enjoying his food while waiting for customer to come… aah i know he can handle customers… he is too friendly 🙂

    In Search For The Girls…

    As i was walking… taraa! found these girls.. wandering around excitedly..forgotten about that they are too running a business at that same moment.

    Wait!  ..lets see where they were up to ..

    Aha!… foods.. spaghetti.. how can you resist the foods and the team with good marketing strategy.  “get your spaghetti here! come! come!

    20160220_093853

    Look at the smile …patiently waiting for customers.

     

    No one can resist this cute boy.. only rm1 for a cupcake.. do your own design…everybody loves it.

    Wait… there are not back yet.. they are going somewhere else.. and there i was looking from far for their next destination.

    They were approached by a pretty girl “hi, would you like to take a photograph? … its free”

    They did not missed out the face painting… its fun to see them walking around doing inspection from one booth to another.

    Back to Business!

    Whenever people come to the booth i walk away.. i look and listen how the communicate with their customers (big and small).

    They were so inspired by how other kids promoting their business, so they decided to do their own marketing strategy, walking around  with their place cards while one of them attend customer at their booth.

    They look nervous attending their first customer but after awhile.. they gets better.  Even my son started calling people to buy “come beli”! beli!

    The Last Customer

    There are some negotiations going on… Lona didn’t have enough money.. she only got rm4 but the bracelet cost rm5.  “What do you do Lona”, asked her mum.  Okay.. because she is so cute.. not only Chrissa gives her discount.. she gave her free key chain. Probably its her way of her marketing strategy and because she was the last customer before we ‘tutup kedai’ close their booth and packed their things.

    The Best Day Ever!

    Whenever my daughter says.. ‘The Best Day Ever’ she really mean it.. they had great fun, i did too.. we all had great time.  I cant describe how awesome that day was.  There were music, bubbles, kids running the booths..kids running around.. kids playing games, its full of laughter and happiness.

    We have our tummy full of foods, from cotton candy.. spaghetti, cupcakes.. drinks. Had fun with the games and lots of prices. We met new old and make new friends. Oh its  the feeling of satisfaction.  I might have forgotten some details.. but if you were there, then you know what i meant.

    We are so blessed and glad to be part of the Kids Bazaar.  Kids learn a lot from it, from communication, marketing, handling money.  It shows that learning does not need to be stressful but fun and enjoyable.

    First Family Trip 2016

    Our family goal this year is to go for a family trip around our beautiful Sabah. During the Chinese New Year holiday we decided to go to Kudat.   We have been to Simpang Mengayau, Kudat, so we thought we don’t have to visit or stay there this time.  My husband saw a nice resort from the website and booked for a night. He booked at North Borneo Biostation, Kudat.

    Having no idea what to expect..we just packed and go!  Driving from to Kudat took 3 hours, on the was raining and certain part was hot sunny day.   We reached our destination around 2.30pm and it was another 10-15 minute after Simpang Mengayau.  It was indeed a nice place with only 20 resorts and it suitable for custom shop Hawaiian style as the environment and weather is similar.

    Our dinner for that night at The North Borneo Biostation’s Restaurant..

    The best thing about this place is that you can spend time quality time with your family… why? because there are no TV!  So you can do pretty much of everything…talk! talk! talk!

    No TV ..can makes you a little bit silly
