The Scheming Child

My younger boy is only 9 years old and that little fellow already has a little sleazy massage parlour business going on. Yes, you read right. He's running his own little massage parlour though it's far from sleazy ... LOL!


He's had this business going ever since he knew he could capitalize on some pretty good profits out of me. Yes, I'm his number one customer ... well, I'm his only customer too most of the time. His mommy sometimes uses his massage services and he makes quite a good sum out of it as well.

You see, whenever we're in the hall watching TV, I'm always complaining to wifey that my feet hurt and I have aches here and there and this little enterprising young fellow is always within earshot. So one day, when I told wifey my feet hurts and I could do with a good feet massage, my son came up to me and said,

'Wanna urut (massage)?'

Now how could I say no to free massage right. So I said, sure, why not. That's when the cheeky little fellow ran upstairs and came down with his 'price list' stating how much each massage service cost! Both wifey and me had this look of incredulity on our faces. I took the list and he really had different prices for different areas of the body.

There was the feet massage which cost RM1.00 for 10 minutes, then there was the whole leg massage which cost RM2.00 for 10 minutes, the hand massage, the shoulder massage and also the head and neck massage. By this time both wifey and me were snickering away at his home made price list.

The little fellow even had discounts for certain days and even free foot massages if the massage fell within a certain time period on a certain day. Don't ask me why, maybe at that particular time and day he's just in a more generous mood ... hehehe.

And he does a pretty good job of massaging too. His small little fingers are just perfect for massaging my achy feet and the pressure he applies is just perfect. He's made quite a bit of profit out of wifey and me already. And his prices are so much cheaper than those you see at the malls, hopefully he doesn't notice that and start increasing his prices ... LOL!

That boy really amazes me with his schemes at times. I wonder what ingenious business idea he'll come up with next. Car washing services? Maybe selling replica watches? I wouldn't be surprised if one fine day he comes running down with a price list for a new business scheme of his ... LOL!

  37. A lot of replica rolex new high quality of the replica watches have Replica watches grown like mushrooms,Replica Watches and one rolex replica watches canReplica rolex Watches get a watch Fake WatchpracticallyFake Rolex everywhere. While Replica Watchesyou are Fake Watchjust having a stroll downFake Watch the street,Replica Rolex watches a guy might Replica Rolex watches come up to you and show you bunch of watches, and tell you that those are the best watch Replicas watches available in the world. On the other hand replica Rolex watches are not replica rolex as abundant Fake Watch as the fakes. Replica Rolex Replica watches are somewhat made with care, with all possible
    fake Rolex ways to atleast Replica Watchlook like a Rolex watch. While it is Replica Rolex Watcheasier to spot a fake Rolex watch, it is somewhat difficult to recognize a replica from an original Rolex.

    The best Replica watches way to be assured of buying a genuine Rolex watch is to get it from a Rolex authorized Fake Watchdealer. If you should get the watch from any other sources, you would need to understand the unique characteristics of the Rolex watch which you want to buy, as otherwise you may be procuring a replica instead of an original Rolex. Rolex puts particular Replica Rolex Watch identifications in all their watch models which provide a clue of the product that you are buying. These identifications are not available in replica watches, or even if they are available, the identifications are not properly crafted.

    One of the first Fake Watches basic things to notice in an original Rolex is that the case back is free from any engravings. The case-back is smooth as ever,Replica Watches with the only exception that there would be a hologram stuck onto it if the watch happens to be new. Replica watches have engravings of a logo or something similar, which is a good indication that Rolex Replicas the watch is not a genuine Rolex. Remaining of the subject matter of holograms, every Rolex replica watchReplica rolex has a hologram stuck on the case-back when shipped new to the dealers Replica Watches all over the world. This is a 3-D hologram which can be viewed at different angles. In case of replica rolex, the sticker stuck on the case-backs are not holograms, and does not have any 3-D effect.

    Another basic replica rolex way to identify a genuine Rolex is by its second hand. In most of the Rolex models, the second hand Swiss Replica Watches sweeps the dial with a continuous movement. There are few exceptions, but those models rolex replica are not in production these days. In all of the replica Rolex watches then the quartzrolex replica movement is used in which the second hand stops and moves every second. Replica WatchThere were a few models manufactured in the 1980?s which had quartz movement. This idea was dropped and Rolex replicaes Rolex started to have watches with continuous movement of the second hand. Rolex made the Air King models in 2003 which used quartz movement. In Geneve Cellini, which is a classic brand of Rolex watches, Rolex uses hand wound replica watchesmechanism for gent's models, while the ladies version uses quartz movement.

    If you are lucky replica watch enough to buy a solid gold Rolex watch, you will find that the watch is much heavier than its replica model. This is replica rolexbecause the replica uses a base metal which has gold plating. This gold plating wears off in time, and the base metal starts to show. This particularly happens at the corner of the lugs and at the case-back. There are also typical engravings which ensure that the watch is an original Rolex. If you take off the watch band or the strap, you will notice the registered number engraved fake watchinbetween the lugs at "12" position of the dial. Again, you can find the replica rolex serial number of the case engraved on the same place at "6" position of the dial. As for replicas, there are no such engravings.
