A few weeks ago I gave a presentation at my school about the Vietnam War and my own personal history as a refugee/boat person. I have given this presentation for four years now, and my parents have joined me for the last two. It can get a bit emotional and there is always a handful of students and staff who need tissues halfway through. I was going to share one of the videos I put together on this blog, but complications arose, WP wants me to pay $60/year for VideoPress, then I got busy so it never happened. Anyhow, long story short, my family and I escaped Vietnam by boat when I was two and a half years old, stayed in three different refugee camps in Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore for ten months, then arrived in the U.S. in 1985. My parents are amazing people and have worked tirelessly since then to care for our family. They are entrepreneurs and have owned and operated their own thriving furniture business for over 20 years. I am so proud of them! And don’t forget to mention grateful!
Now that I’ve given you some background information, here is the story behind this post. My parents’ latest advertisement project (they usually have a few going on at any given moment–in print, on air (radio and tv), and online…go visit them at www.furnitureusa.com!) is with the Regional Transit System. My father, who adores Bailey, has always wanted to incorporate him in the store ads. Well, it finally happened and I am going to share the sneak peak with you! I fell over laughing when I saw it because Bailey just looks too cute!
I think this whole thing is hilarious and I can’t stop sharing it! The buses will be done in two weeks and I am going to take Bailey so he can have his picture taken in front of a bus with his picture on it! I can’t wait! Haha!
