MANILA, Philippinea – For the second time in her life, it was boredom that drew Susan Gaddi Campos to the world of retail.
“In the ’80s, my husband was assigned in Cebu and I got bored again,” she says. “I’m not the type who likes to play mahjong [all day], which my friends did. I was hired as merchandise coordinator for all ladies’ RTW in Rustan’s Cebu.”
When the family returned to Manila after two years, she settled into her role as full-time housewife—until four years ago, when the monotony of keeping house for mostly absent sons kicked in.
