…And my ziet eez offizially ruined!
The German Care Package, as Toni called it, consisted of sweet German chocolates and goodies, sausages (love ’em), various types of teas, coffee (for the only coffee addict in the house – moi), spreads, and even creams for me and for my babies. Good thing Toni emailed me a goody list in English, which came handy in figuring out what the items were (most text were in German).
Toni blogged about this already, but I’ll say again how this started. We were schoolmates in high school, really good friends back then. The friendship began when I was a freshman; she was one year ahead. In our school, the older ones always took care of the new ones. She was one of those who looked out for me. I remember how we were – writing each other letters daily even if our classrooms were adjacent and our school so small we were sure to bump into each other during recess (i kept our collection of letters ’til college, then I moved to Manila, the old house was demolished, who knows where those letter are now)… hanging out during lunch break and after school at her house (which was only a few blocks from school)… strolling up and down Session Road… sharing secrets and crushes… spying on the “mean girls” from the other school (remember, sa rooftop nyo?)… those were the days!
Anyway, we were out of touch for many many years. Until Blogosphere reunited us. So here we are again, exchanging “letters” through our blogs, and, finally, goodies too! I sent her typical Filipino stuff (I call it Pinoy Pack) that hopefully will alleviate some of the homesickness. 🙂
Thanks again, Toni and V, for all the care and thoughtfulness that came with the package. My family appreciates it very much. (Have I mentioned how hubby begged for a foot rub upon discovering one of the items was a massage gel? Oh well, I reluctantly obliged.)
