It’s the Thought That Counts

This week’s theme made me think if the best gifts I received are from hubby. The answer is yes if I will base it on monetary value. But it’s not surprising because he is my husband. I mean, partners always give each other special gifts on special occasions. So what I did is I erased hubby from the list and disregard the monetary value of each gift. It’s the thought that counts after all.

The best gift I received is from my bestfriend Hazel. Though I would say her gifts must have cost her much, it’s the thought and effort that I appreciate the most. She and her family are now based in Abu Dhabi and being miles away from me didn’t stop her from letting me know that I am remembered on my special day.

roses, chocolates and bear

We only get the chance to meet once a year but as always, she has this way of making me feel that I am a special friend.

Gifts from Mommy Clang – Bento Accessories

When I heard the voice of our new postman, my heart leaped and I had goose bumps. I already knew what it is about as I and RJ were waiting for it. Weee, I was right! It was a parcel from my very good online friend, Clarissa of Kizuna and Brilliant Days. I know Mommy Clang doesn’t want her gifts to be posted online but this is the second time I received gifts from her so it’s about time to disobey her. I want her to know how thankful I am. So what’s inside the parcel?

Bento accessories!!!

Bento Accessories

bento picks, bento sauce and condiments containers,
egg molders and a lunch box

Actually, I requested for it. That’s how barefaced I am. Lol! Seriously, when RJ saw Mommy Clang’s bento, she kept on bugging me to make bento for her school lunch. If you have no idea what bento is, you can check Mommy Clang’s bentou’s here, here, here and here. It’s hard to make bento without the needed tools so I asked Mommy Clang if she can buy for us then I’ll just pay her through paypal. But Mommy Clang is so generous that she sent it as birthday gifts for me and RJ. Teehee!

God is so good for giving me good and generous online friends. To you Mommy Clang, thank you very, very much from the bottom of our hearts. We hope to meet you and your family someday.
