It rained this very early morning. I messaged my brother that it is blessings from Above since today is the grand opening of his business. They are having the motorcade right now. I and my son went to the city proper to buy this paw-waving cat, the Maneki Neco, an item thought of as attracting good luck. Here at home, we have the Buddha, the green frog with a coin in its mouth, and our own paw-waving cat. The one I bought is solar - powered, which I previously said it was for the digital clock but my son corrected me. I will be gone for 2 hours because the blessings will be at 3pm. See you all later my friends.

Maneki neko is a Japanese custom. It means "inviting cat" and supposedly invites money to your business. Also some businesses have a tanuki, a raccoon with a large belly. Most businesses at their grand opening have huge round flower arrangements that other businesses send them for welcoming them to the business community.

thanks. that is additional knowledge for me and to those who plan to have their own business. i think there should be water too in a business place, or maybe some lucky charms like wind chimes?

yes, and i believe it is called the 'maneki neko', which i sometimes pronounce or term it is 'maneko neki'. the paw-waving cat was placed on top of the CPU. it is facing east. thank you for your wish.

no flyers, just the motorcade and sharing of posts on FB by us his siblings and classmates and friends. the maneko neko is the only charm i gave him. there is an altar with the Sto. Nino clad in green.

cycle house. no, i don't think the business will flourish mainly because of the charms. my brother is a hardworking man and he does this for his kids. he is a graduate of management course, has 2 MBA's and he thought about this business for months before doing it.

@ridingbet now that's how to plan for business. Cycle house, meaning parts, accessories and motorcycles and bicycles
