A relative of mine came for a visit last week. she's married to a dutch but they now reside in Kuala Lumpur. the last time (and the first time) i met them was 2 years ago. at that time i was heavily pregnant with Aidan. they were terribly kind, brought us loads of stuff, food stuff... took us out for tea, then went on to dinner, met a few of their friends and relatives (nice to be introduced to locals since we were new at that time) and the next day, she cooked us a good mean nasi tomato and brought them over to us!
This year, she dropped by and it was our turn to treat them! apart from a heavy tea consisting of fried mee hoon, the famous limburg vlaai, and a dutch dessert vla, i prepared Auntie Noni this gift.
Auntie Noni is a very simple person. i made her a simple card and i decided to stick to one main colour and add a little gem with a grey ribbon. my mum makes necklaces and such (watches, earings etc.), i picked one of mum's collection (which reminds me i have to pay her!) and put them in a matching box, tied a bow and voila!
We had a good time, catching up, Aidan spoke a lot of dutch and responded to some french (i'm quite surprised!). i'll always be grateful to Auntie Noni, she cares, she remembers, loving and too kind. hope she enjoyed her evening with all of us!
That's it for this time guys, it's past midnight... i'm gonna sleep smiling coz i managed to finish 3 cards today! which is very very rare! i'm lucky if i get to finish one! and i'm quite pleased on how it turned out too! will share soon and will reply comments soon k? thanks for dropping by!
