12 days of Christmas (gifting)

10 Comments

This is my version of the 12 days of Christmas. My friend Juanita of JuanitaTortilla.com sent me a package from Switzerland where she lives with her husband now. Juanita and I met a long time ago as primary school classmates at the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus (Toa Payoh). She travels back to Singapore at least once a year and I try to take leave from work to go hang out with her. I have yet to visit her in Zurich but soon…

How can you not love the effort and care taken to pack a gift that keeps giving for 12 days? Go visit her blog tell her she is lovely.

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
