Why, yes I can! 😀
Every night after I go to the gym, it’s a habit to stop at the mailbox to check the post for the day. However, this time there wasn’t anything in the post, when there should have been at the very least a newspaper. There are two possible explanations for this –
1. Someone has gone down and picked up the mail, which doesn’t happen all too frequently; or
2. There was a package in the post, so the mailman brought it to the door.
As it turned out, answer number 2 was the correct one 🙂
Now, the Airmail sticker wasn’t exactly the first thing that I saw, but I can’t really show the first thing I saw since it’s the real signature of my bestest friend in the whole world (who I’ve known now for 10 years), Snoskred 😉 It was a package that came to me as a surprise – the best kind of packages!
Of course, as you do, the first thing you do is to send a quick message on Kakaotalk (which I was shown to when she switched phones over from the iPhone to Galaxy), saying that a fing arive. Then you frantically search for a scissor to open the package not realising that there is a easy-pull tab on the back. Luckily I noticed the pulltab prior to trying to slice the package open.
The first thing that I pull out is this –
At the sight of Salted Caramel Tim Tams, I literally squealed. Maybe not my proudest moment…though of course, there was also hockey on the teevee so a close play could make me gasp or make other involuntary noises…such as cursing the referees for disallowing a goal. I will note that the size is a bit weird to me – 171g, otherwise known as 19g per biscuit as there are 9 in the packet.
There was also a packet of dark choc Tim Tams in the package – and I actually liked them better maybe because the salted caramel was a little bit too subtle…I may revisit this later 🙂
Next up is an item I knew would wind its way to me at one point in time or another, the KRudd Tea (legally, I must note that the packet’s marketing claims it was crafted by Australians plural, but the truth is that it was Kevin Rudd’s blend that won from the five celebrities that were chosen)
In trying out the tea, I really like it. I know that it claims to be a full-bodied tea, but I think it’s actually a milder cuppa especially when I tried a taste test of sorts at work – I first had a cuppa of English Teatime tea (from Bigelow) and then the Twinings tea in similar circumstances – two bags (for a ~500mL cup) with 4 teaspoons of sugar for sweetness, and the Bigelow tea actually seemed a bit stronger.
There were two other items in the package – the first is the Original Source Surfing Tropical Pineapple shower gel…I had never used shower gel until I was in Australia, and ever since I’ve been converted to it from using bar soap – mostly because of the different scents 🙂 This one has a great scent and it was a great pick-me-up when I had my shower Wednesday morning 😉
The other item was a very beautiful card with some words in it, partly saying that it was sent from Australia with ️ 🙂
I will leave you a picture here of the things in the packet and many millions of thanks so Snoskred :), with a note about the wrapping of the shower gel – I am fairly certain that the bag that was used to protect the other items in the bag from leakage was a repatriated bag that we had purchased in Hawaii in order to protect some of the shower gels and liquids that were bought there in the epic shoppery that was done. I suspect that because of the bag being a Ziploc bag with both English and French on it. I somehow don’t see the Aussie bags having French on them :p
Oh, and neither the shuttle nor the MacBook were in the package 😀
Again, many thankies 😉 and as you know, there is a new package headed your way shortly as well 🙂
