Look ma! Front page!

To new readers of my blog, Herro Hachi is a clothing line I started about a year ago. :)

Last Wednesday, I had the pleasure of meeting fellow blogger, Rebekah at the Urban Glamour Market I was vending at. She works for the Richmond Review (our local newspaper) and wanted to come and observe me in action and interview me as well. She told me a while before that she wanted to do a story on young entrepreneurs in our city so I was excited at the idea of having a small little section in the newspaper but to my surprise... I WAS ON THE FRONT PAGE! WHAT??? Also in the article are fellow bloggers and friends - Bunnie and Lemon Pie! Thank you so much for this opportunity, Rebekah! 

Read the online version of the article here: "Young entrepreneurs open up shop online to do business..."

Here are some fun photos of us from that evening! 

Photobooth: Le Studio Vancouver (I teamed up with them by supplying them with some of my speech bubbles to use as props!)

Bunnie & I :)

Rebekah & I... love that awkward turtle hand ;P

I just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me from the beginning, from the middle, or from just recently. It means the world to me... you have no idea! :)

That was the most exciting part of my weekend... what was yours?

Ahahaha, love the expressions!

The front page is reserved for the story that will sell the most papers. Congrats!

The highlight of my weekend was DC restaurant week--in this case, all the various tapas you wanted to try for $20 per person. We had a group of 5, so we were able to sample quite a few. My wife's favorite was the paella.
