A Bag Of Goodies From A Fellow Hippie Mum

I can't recall how Khristine found my travel blog... but I'm sure glad she did. She left a comment on one of my posts and I remember how thrilled I was to hear from a fellow hippie mum.

Bag of travel goodies: Bag, Citronella Bug Spray, drop-in bottle, disposable liners, vegetarian cookbook.

We haven't met in person yet nor have we been cyber friends (I love that 90s term) for a long time, but she sent me a package of goodies three days ago for no occasion at all - perhaps out of hippie sistahood?

I was in bed playing with our baby Luna when the delivery guy called out "Tao po!" from our apartment's gate. Hubby was the one who answered the door and received it. I asked him if it was an envelope (we were also expecting mail from NSO) or a boxed package. When he said it's got a lot of contents inside, I rose quickly to check it out.

I love all of the stuff she sent but I'm particularly fascinated with this Playtex Drop-In Nurser Bottle. I never knew it existed until I received one! Khristine also gave disposable liners for it. Perfect for traveling with an infant.

It's the first time I have received a gift from someone who reads my blogs. It feels stellar and strange. I am a human being and I love attention like everyone else, being noticed makes my existence more colorful... and to be noticed by someone whose writing I admire too (I've become a serial internet snoop follower of her blog too when I found out about it), not to mention that someone is a more learned mum than me, is something else.

Thank you, with all my heart. I know today's your birthday and I wish you good karma for the rest of your life. And oh, regarding the note you've written on the book... Would love to meet you in person (or in a parallel universe) so I can give my simple birthday gift for you.
