It was worth the wait and to think that I have a few more packages to receive – I am a happy woman.
My work colleagues seem to be more excited than I am when it comes to receiving a package. In fact, anybody’s package. Perhaps the joy is in the Receiving – although it’s not yours. Ha ha.
This was something I purchased on February 16 2015, off a website called Ali.Express. The little brother of AliBaba. The brainchilds of Jack Ma. The good thing is the items are way way cheap than what most of us can get off the market – and this is after one includes the shipping fee, if any. As most retailers provide shipping costs for free.

splurge money so called beautify my planners and washi-up the decorative bottles and baskets in the kitchen and bedroom. I still feel a bit insecure to buy big, more costly things through this website since it is based in another country. kelak mun mauk anok urang ya macam susah.. huhu.
This washi obsession will probably be ‘just a phase’ but I intend to have fun with it until it lasts. After all, it’s just a hobby to help me relax and let go. Now where’s my planner …
