A simple request that was not always possible in the often-crowded shopping area. Sometimes the seats are not that comfortable or there was simply not enough seats.
He had just retired after 25 years in the advertising , marketing and design business as managing director of  The Artistshop Company, Inc., an advertising design agency he founded in 1984 with two other UST Advertising Arts majors and friends with a mere P3,000 capitalization.  The business had been good to him and it was time to give back.
