During my younger years, I’m always fascinated with reading various books, from fairy tales to references. My love for books was nurtured even more when it literally became my escape from my darkest days, it helped e cope up when I can’t even talk to my parents.
For most of my trashy college years, my dreams were built on the idea that someday I would be able to have my own bookstore or a library with a cafe on it where we’d offer pastries, pastas and coffee or tea. Seems like a pretty common thing now since we already have the same concept from many different well-known names like Starbucks and Seattle’s Best and it seemed like an impossible thing, really.
Recently, I got a chance to have a dealership that mainly caters children with the vision of providing quality books at an affordable price to every Filipino child. Imagine my excitement when I found out that I might be able to finally have my own mini bookstore. Baby steps in making my dreams a reality!
Initially, I found their company when I was looking for books for my children in preparation for the opening of classes this August. We’re all trying to adapt with the options and solutions that DepEd have and for me, having extra materials would be good for us. Aside from K12-approved books, they also have other materials and also Bible-related books (story books and activity books) which is awesome for children!
As of now, we’re still in the process of getting approved for the dealership but we already have a name:
Just a little backstory, there was a time when I thought I was pregnant again (this was after the pregnancy scare post) and upon consulting my trusted Chinese Gender calendar, it will be a girl! I immediately chose a name, Olivia Sofiel. Few days down the road and my period came in but I already love the name. This will be my new baby 🥰 !
