A mystery surprise

When I got home from work today, there was a mystery Pos Laju envelope sitting on my living room table. Ooo. A package! For me? I love surprises. Good ones, that is. Who could it be? The mystery was partially solved when I looked at the sender's name. Ah. It was from none other than my good galpal, Giddy Tiger.

Like a kid on Christmas Day, I eagerly ripped open the envelope to get at the contents inside. Lookiee lookiee! A wrapped pressie with the cutest bear bears all holding flowers! And a sweet note saying it was for my recent graduation. Awwwww... GT, you didn't have to... I'm touched that you remembered it and sent me a pressie from Penang!

And what was inside? Ta-dah! Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. Uncannily, GT has picked a book I've always wanted to read, but never got around to reading! After this, I have to say that we are TOO freakily similar. Hehe.

So, I now know how I'll be spending my weekend. Curled up in bed with a good book! Wheeeee!

Glad you like the pressie, Rinnah and it was my pleasure! I wanted to pass it to you the 2 times I was in KL, but since we didn't meet I thought I'd send it instead. Let me know if the book's good ya, cos I haven't read it yet *bashful*
