one-day trade fair

i woke up early today and prepared so i will not be late for my first class. i have been studying because i have a test on that subject. i wasn't able to memorize all the tax concepts but i kind of understood little of it.

i got in the LRT just in time but unfortunately i wasn't able to get in earlier because i was carrying this big paper bag for our one-day trade fair. almost 5 trains pass by me and i wasn't able to go in and i was already late. i didn't know wat to do. i was already thinking of going down and taking a cab or anything that would help go as soon as possible on my way to school.

a skip train came to rescue. and i was already late for sure. i was reading my handouts about basic taxation so i would be able to answer the test questions. i got in school 20 minutes after and guess what? i was 50 minutes late for my 60-minute class. i went inside the gate and passed through the guar when he caught up with me and stopping me because i was carrying a big bag of food. and school plicy is that no food for more than five people is allowed to go inside the campus. and this policy is quite weird.

i stopped and was talking really fast when i told them i have a test and i'm alte for class. but then thanks to this classmate of mine who approached me and told me that the test was postponed. i had the chance already to take a deep breath. thank god. i didn't know what to do. they told me i needed a permit for the food. i just told them that i wil go back to get it whent the permit is ready.

my class ended and the permit wasnt ready. nobody tried to take care of the permit so we didnt have one. we had to change bags for the bag of food and bags full of envelope and clothes so they wont see the food. and they didn't see any of it.

this trade fair are for practicum students of the business management students and today we have launched our product for the first time in the market. we weren't allowed to sell the product so we had them have free tastes and we took there orders. it was very fun because everybdy liked our product. they were eager to buy it already but we had to just take orders. and for the whole day we had 180 orders. and in my calculation that is P4700 sales for a day selling a P25 worth of molocco. and compare to the other groups we had the most orders. it was very fun. persuading people to buy the product and repeating the explanation of the product was all overwhelmng to me. my heart was raising everytime a potential customer is passing by.

i was really happy. more of this because we are even conquering glorietta center for our bazaar. an event to remember. wowkie! i'm a true entrepreneur already. all the thousands of pesos my dad spends are paying its worth now. i'm really good. i'm a better sales officer than our marketing manager. well i think we all are better than that guy.

i hope you can try them as well... you can contact me... and order molocco, molo chips and dip for only P25.
