Treats from TB

I'm not guilty of  laziness this time. This time, the excel file is to blame for the endless report I have to endure. But I would like to share the lovely treats I got from the mail.

It was almost 4 in the afternoon when the landlady knocked on my door. She handed me a notice from the Post Office with matching hand gestures where is the place exactly located. I think she's also excited for me when she saw my wide smile. 

Days before that, I received an email from TB asking for my address. I joined her "You've got snail mail" game. I didn't expect to be chosen. You know how much I love the snail mail. Needless to say, I am really excited to pick it up. Why do I have to pick it up? because the customs had to check the content in my presence to ensure no illegal products we're sent with the goodies.

The amazing part was the fact that it was once on the other side of the world from TB's hands and now I was holding it. It's really magical. Thank you TB for the wonderful treats. I'm not allergic to any of them and I did enjoy everything. Please wait for the postman to knock on your door :)

P.S. My mom said you're beautiful and you're kind to send me the treats. She was amazed too. She loves the picture inside the card. Thanks!

 see that snail? yes, it traveled far.

 the yummy treats TB sent me. 
Ms. Fields - I devoured them all
Key Chain and Pin - They're holding my apartment keys
Extra Dessert Delights - I gave them to the daughter of my friend. She's a lovely girl.
SOUR PATCH - I ate almost 3/4 of the bears. I shared them with friends and officemates but I almost finished the whole pack before I reach the office. Hehehe!

The card! Yay, I love reading handwritten letters. 

I have my mails ready. All I need to do now is to mail them.

  2. You deserved to be picked sis, coz you are so passionate about snail mail. Ang sarap ng feeling for me to send out those parcels and I'm sure ganun din si TB. Yup, I think it's amazing how snail mail works (when it does, hayz). I can almost see the smile on your face =)

    Yay, ready na rin pala ang mga letters mo sis. Hope you're no longer that busy and that you're feeling ok. Take care =)

  12. Awww... that's sweet! I love recieving snail mails, too. Parang ang sarap ng feeling na nakakatanggap ka ng isang bagay, galing sa isang tao via mail. Sa technology kasi ngayon, napapadali na ang lahat. Nakakamiss yung mga snail mails and letters.

    Hm, parang gusto kong magjoin.. pag iisipan ko nga.

  20. Sweet! Meron kaming sinalihan dati ng sister ko snack swap naman from all over the world. Ang naging ka swap namin e from Germany at USA. Syempre mga pinoy snacks ang pinadala namin like boy bawang,chippy, oishi sponge, Voice combo butter flavor, dried mangoes etc. Yan ang pinaka mga nagustuhan nila.Nakakatuwa lang kasi natitikman nila yung mga snacks natin dito. May mga letters din na kasama yung package na natanggap namin.
