Last Monday as what I have mentioned in my other post, we went to a Technology School to promote our center. There are a lot of private schools involved. Each school presented a program. We had our presentation on the first day. Almost everybody came on that day. On the second day, I met one of the teachers in the school where I worked a year ago. She looked at our promotions and smiled. I told her I'm already working in this center. She is a Thai and she had the difficulty in speaking English. She was asking a lot of questions and I'll just say yes or smiled at her because I couldn't understand the way she speaks. Before they left with her friend, she told me, "Oh Sarah you are rich now", I just laughed and told her "NO". Then they left, I started to smile and I reiterate what she said to my hubby that we are rich, and I told him, if she only knew. Then my teenager smiled and said, because Mama you agreed to her when she asked you that you are the owner of the center. I said, "Really???" with a shocking voice. I didn't understand what she said, I told my teenager. I was planning to explain again but I didn't bother anymore. They might misunderstood me again. Language barrier had been our struggle here in Thailand, a lot of times we were misunderstood especially when we talk to the locals. But still we enjoy the place, the food, and the people.

Promotions are not easy. It takes hard time, giving yourself into it, and giving up your other needs. That's what we did since yesterday until tomorrow. We were having an Open House activity. All private schools and technologies all over the city will do some promotions for their own school. And students were brought by their teachers to see the different promotions designed by each school. On the first day, that was last Monday, our Thai manager did some promotions on stage with other schools, each school will represent a show or something to promote the school. While surfing the net the other day I found out about advertising and promotions. Our manager did the same. He looks different with a funny face. You really need to do something to attract the attention of the students. So, each school has its own role to play. We gave out brochures to students and invited to do some activities we prepared for them and gave out gifts. It's fun, though the place was so hot yet were able to manage. It's a great day today!
