I GOT A NICELY WRAPPED GIFT YESTERDAY!!!
I must say that the discovery of great bloggers via this humble blog of mine has brought wonderful experiences. Perhaps it is much more appreciated when one is thousands of miles away from the land called home. Four months ago, I discovered that a name quite familiar amongst some bloggers actually lives in the same city as I am! Upon more investigation, I found out that she lives only a block away. She had us over and we had her over too - only to be surprised with a present, all beautifully wrapped in pink!
Yesterday, another kind blogger sent me, who doesn't really frequent her blog that much, a nicely wrapped gift via her sister who was travelling in Europe. Obviously, it was all impossible without dear neighbour-blogger. The whole family was extremely excited! Without having a chance to snap a photo of the package, everyone was eagerly sitting in a circle wondering what was inside. Questions like: "Siapa bagi ni Mama?", "Birthday siapa Mama?" and "Kenapa Aunty mamasarah bagi kita present?" were thrown in, among others.
They carefully unwrapped the package and in were some keropok ikan (woohoo!!) with a few packets of spices. So, yesterday we enjoyed a plateful of long-craving keropok dipped in chilly sauce/tomato sauce. When I was frying them in the kitchen, all were eager to watch me do the miracle job. Abang Z even admitted that he forgot how the outcome of fried keropok looks like! Oh, dear, and we haven't even been here for a year.
To maklang, thank you loads from us all. It is actually very touching because we don't really know each other that much (damn, tears running down the cheek now!). In return, I can only pray the best for you and your family...
What does it say about bloggers? You pause and reflect.
