Aunty, how do you know that my daddy is a late sleeper? Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night to use the toilet, Daddy is still watching TV in the living room?
Edmund (7 years old) is our client’s son, and he is curious how come we know this daddy’s sleeping habits? Especially when this is the first time we meet both of them.
“Go to your daddy’s room and on top of the dressing table sits an Owl figuring, go and bring it to me, please,” I said.
Edmund race across the dining hall and return with the Owl figurine in his hand. We got this from our last trip to Japan Edmund proudly said.
“Do you know that most owls are nocturnal, actively hunting their prey in darkness?” I asked Edmund, trying to impress him with my little knowledge on animals.
Yes, I know, and they are a mostly solitary animal as well. Replied Edmund with a smug on his face.
I am amazed that you know so much about Owl, where did you learn so much? I asked. National Geographic and Animal Planet, I watched them every weekend. Replied Edmund.
“Aunty, faster tell me how come you know my Daddy is a late sleeper?” Edmund impatiently demanded. “It is because I saw this Owl in your father’s room and hence I was able to predict that your daddy is a late sleeper cleverly,” I said.
Every item in our house has a characteristic, and with training and experience, Feng Shui Consultants can make many predictions and read your life pattern.
So if your children are unwilling to go to bed on time, look around, and you may find one or two Owls lurking somewhere.
I'm a bit of a night owl because that's when I feel the most creative and alive.
