Cheer in a mail

I thought I won't be blogging for a while as I've nothing crafty to log here until an envelope arrived for me yesterday.

It was something that cheered me up as I was nursing a cold. I swear the mucous disappeared and began breathing very evenly while I was opening up the contents and reading the card from Beehui. She returned from a trip to Myanmar recently and sent me the sweetest looking beaded ribbon I've ever seen and a button made from coconut shell she'd bought from there. The vintage buttons were from her mum who kept them in a biscuit tin and a zip pouch of cute animals to keep me inspired. I was thoroughly thrilled!

Honestly, I can't differentiate between Myanmar and Cambodia. I think it's high time I learn more about Indochina. In her card, Beehui mentioned passing by Aung San Suu Kyi's house where she's kept under arrest. I wonder how it must have felt to be in the midst of such political tension. I promised myself that I'm going to get hold of the autobiography book on this respected freedom fighter, my next trip to a good bookstore or library.

On a different note, I learn that a blogfriend Patty is doing a blogathon. This time she's pledging her cause and raising money for a Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso rescue organization. Do check it out and the other charities and provide any support you can give. Many thanks!


  1. Thanks for mentioning the Blogathon! And that ribbon is pretty.

  2. Man I feel so at home here right now on your blog and am happy to Kimberly and Lies thru VictoriaE for this opportunity. Well I love the ribbon, and the zip pouch I fully have a handbag made out of this exactly and I loved those bag shops in Shanghai.


Hi, thank you for taking some time out to write me your thoughts.
I truly appreciate it!
