Don't Judge a Book by It's Cover! Merry Xmas and Happy New Year

I was visiting the playground at Giant Hypermarket, Kinrara, Puchong recently.

I saw an outlet just beside the playground (at second floor, near the POS Office) selling kids toy and others. The shop owner does not seem to be very friendly type, but like my title of this post said "Don't Judge a Book by it's Cover"

My kids (Wei Jie and Wei Xiang) were playing at the playground. Since they are in the spectrum of autism, the way they play and their behavior attracted some attention of the other parent and also the shop owner.

He approached me and ask about my kids, and I explained to him about their situation. He then ask me to go his shop, and he said "I would like to give one MP3 player to each of your son, please choose 2 and the color that they like". He then ask Wei Xiang to choose, but Wei Xiang does not seem to be interested and run away.

Since my kids does not like to listen to music with ear plug inside their ears, and I have tried letting them listen before and they simply does not like it. I politely turn down the offer and thank him for his kindness and understanding of my special kids. I do not want to take advantage of his kindness and he is running a business. The cost of renting the space is RM1500 per month and I belief it is hard to cover looking at the number of people actually stop by to browse.

During the Xmas, if you are going to buy some toys as gift why not pay him a visit. Even if you do not buy from him, just a word of thank for his kindness will go a long way. It is hard to educate the public to understand our kids, this man make an effort to know and show me his kindness. He even hug me and said "do take care". Please note, he does not look friendly but he has the heart. So please never judge a book by it's cover.

Do visit him and let him know we appreciate him.. You can tell him you read about me and my two kids..

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year
