~ Following up on the article “MEET ME THIS WEEKEND” (March 30th, 2023) Meet me this weekend April 1 and April 2.
Middle of 2021. The world was engulfed with the Covid-19 pandemic. The mass media did not help much. The only news that it blurted out seemed to be gloom and doom.
Closer to home, people in middle to upper income brackets were waving white flags from their homes. They were cash-strapped and could not afford to put food on the table.
It seemed like an endless spiral downwards.
I decided to work on making the difference. I started with “As long as we know the sun will rise tomorrow morning,” and “A tiny seed that grows into a plant, pushing its way up, breaking the surface of the soil”; there is hope.
Writing about simple things in life, sharing my family and my experiences – many people connected with these stories and could relate to their own experiences. They said that it brought them smiles, laughter and fond memories.
From what started out as a short stint, a temporary measure if you may; has now carried on for almost two years. Over 300 articles were published during that period.
This Saturday (tomorrow) April1 and Sunday April 2nd, I, with the help of my wife, Jeannie; will be raising money by selling many of our items, collectibles, such as
. antique (Over 40 years old) leather satchels
. antique leather bags,
. rare, one piece(in the world) each Batik capes
. ladies’ necklaces; handcrafted with unusual stones and designs
. new BMW bags (still in the packing),
. Samsung Watch 5 (Box unopened),
. rare keyholders/keychains,
. BMW and Mini brands keychains,
. fairly rare antique Hotwheel cars,
. old coins and notes
. and other things to own
The money raised will help cover most of the cost of running Leatherpotato.com for the coming year and to explore ideas and ways of taking Leatherpotato to the next level.
Leatherpotato has thousands of views from over 75 countries. Many readers have expressed their views to meet with me. This will be a great fun Saturday and Sunday.
Meet me at:
Lot 3.08, Level 3
Amcorp Shopping Mall,
8, Jalan, Persiaran Barat, Seksyen 52 Petaling Jaya, 46050 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
Date: April 1 and April 2, 2023
Time: 10.00am to 4.00pm (can be extended to 7.00pm)
Let’s chat on various topics. I have shared my thoughts and views on A.I. months ago in several of my articles published. I have shared my thoughts and views on the over-dependence of the ever increasing intelligence of robots. Now, Elon Musk is leading a large group of NGOs to warn of the very same concerns I shared in my articles.
We can also chat about the best coffees, curry puffs, popiah, appam balik… I had some appam balik last evening from the Ramadan bazaar near my home. It was delicious! Crisp, sumptuous amount of mixed fillings like corn, etc, and did I say “delicious”? Yes, I did; because it was. Price RM1.20 or US$0.27 each. (For my house neighbours; it is the stall at the top of the street.)
Meet with the renowned Batik influencer, too; for a chat on batik and stuff like that.
Come, support us. Looking forward to seeing you.😊🤟
Brand new Thule brand bag. Note that the pricetag is still on it.
