A Surprise Package!

This morning the postman rang our doorbell while I was washing the dishes. I wasn't expecting that since the postman had come already earlier. At first I thought it was hubby teasing me or he must've been bringing something big on his arms so that he couldn't open the door himself. Turned out it was a special package. Again at first I thought it was something that hubby ordered, but then after I took it inside, I realized it was for ME!!! Yes, for ME ME ME ME ME HE HE HE HE HE HE HE...

I was surprised since it was a HUGE box!!! And what did I find inside? So many different Asian spices, sauces, instant mixes, and a pair of skiing pants!!! The package was from one of my beloved friends who's now living in Holland. She packed everything SO well that I truly appreciated the time and effort he he he he...

I'm SO SO SO excited since I can't find any of the Asian spices, sauces, and instant mixes here in Finland. Plus I haven't got skiing pants yet HO HO HO HO HO HO...What amazed me TOTALLY was that the skiing pants fit PERFECTLY!!! *gasp* A few years ago she sent me winter gloves that also fit me PERFECTLY. Amazing!!!

She said the pants were for my b-day gift whereas the rest of the stuff was winter survival package. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Dear Friiieeennnddd!!! God bless you more and moreeeee...MWAH MWAH MWAH MWAH MWAH!!!!

And yeahhhhh dear're right, of course. The pants are children's size since I'm only 145 cm (SUPER) TALL HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...LOL LOL!!!

Anyway, here are the pics. I hope Blogger will upload the pics this time!!!! YEEESSSS!!!! My fellow Indonesians will recognize all those Asian foodstuff. Yummy!!!

LUCKY MEEEEE!!!! *wink*

  10. Wow, your friend is so nice indeed! Hey, I use ABC kechup manis here too!

    I suddenly think of keropok. Do you miss it? I haven't eaten that for a long time.

  11. Huah...sampe dipost segala foto*nya hahaha... I'm waiting for the pic of you in the pants hihihi ;)
    BTW, tadinya mau kirim drop biru buat si R2, tapi kok ga muat ya?? hehehe... Kecian soalnya dia kaga dapet apa* gitu hihi...
    Just wait til you use the sambal bajak for nasi goreng, you'll get new enemies once the paste hits the sizzling pan: your neighbors, hahahahhh!! The terasi smell is reaaalllyyyy strong :D - and it's best used sauteed first before adding rice ;)
    Hope you enjoy your spicy winter days :D

  12. Fish: Yes, yes, I'm doing VERY well, thanks, Fish. ;-D And yeah, such a thoughtful gift indeed he he he...

    Max: THANKS for the tag. I'll do it later today! ;-D

    Frasy: package is always the best he he he...glad you've got enough masalas until next year HE HE HE HE...

    Mother Hen: Yeah, I'll go miniskiing next March! ;-D

    Blur Ting: You use ABC too? YAAAAYYY!!!! Yep, I do miss kerupuk he he he he he...

    Fei: Just wait until I get a chance to wear those pants he he he he he...

    No worries about R2. He'll get enough presents later on HI HI HI HI HI HI...

    Actually about the sambal bajak, I wonder if R2 will crunch up his nose 'coz his nose's very sensitive...uuuuhhhh...I hope he doesn't mind the smell. I don't think the neighbours will complain, though. I hope not.

    THX for the tips about sauteeing the chili first HE HE HE HE...and YES, I shall enjoy my spicy winter days HO HO HO HO HO HO HO HO...

  13. WAHH...that was very thoughtful and nice and sweet of her... :)

    Sometimes, even you can get all those things by yourself, but when they come from your family or friends, your days will suddenly have RAINBOWS!!! Hellooo...he he he...

    Enjoy your spices, 'keropok' and skiing pants he he...

  14. Choc Mint Girl: That's the beauty of it, Crystal. She knew I couldn't get all those spices here he he he he...and she knew I hadn't bought skiing pants yet (even though I had told her I was planning to buy a pair later on in spring when they're on a discount). HALLELUJAH for friends like her HE HE HE HE HE...;-D
