It's Here! .. THE PACKAGE that is!

I came back from work yesterday and a package greeted me at home. This aint any ordinary package (hmm I've never received any, anyway .. hehe). This is THE BBM PACKAGE from my swap partner, Aarika Denton, from USA.

With my handbag still slung on my shoulder, I took out my camera and snapped a picture, then went straight into the kitchen, grabbed a knife and knife the package open.

It was a real sweet surprise! Right on top of all the goodies was a letter in an envelope written by Aarika herself. So I read that first before slowly going thru the box of nice stuff.

First there was Chamomile Tea. I know of its soothing effect but have never tried any .. so there's every reason for me to try now!

There's also a box of Crunchy Almond Biscuits .. hmm .. wat a coincident coz jus before I got home, I went to the supermart and almost bought a box of amaretti but then decided not to .. this makes a great substitute.

Included as well was a cup of Choc Flavored Easy Melt Candy Coating. My mind has already started to think of the diff stuff to dunk - bananas, strawberry, marshmellow, nuts .. the list goes on ...

Aarika really did her homework well. She read my blog and found out that I have 2 angels and she included in the package Candy Necklaces. Really sweet of you Aarika. My angels have yet to see these .. i am sure they will go crazy over these candies.

Andes Chocs were also in there .. toffee, orange, cocoa .. they didnt last long .. i esp. love the toffee ones.

Assorted Minees Sandwich Cookies .. choc, vanilla, banana and strawberry. I cant wait to try the banana ones when I break my fast later (muslims are fasting now as it is the month of Ramadhan in the Islamic calander)

That's not all folks, Aarika also included these ..

Her very own, Caramel/Choc Chip Bars + Recipe Card. These are oooohh so chocalatey rich .. really yummy. I wish I could find caramel chips here in Singapore.

If you think thats the end. Well you are wrong. She included a pretty Journal and beautiful Stickers too.

There you go, all the goodness in a package (pic below), which came all the way from USA. It felt like I have just received an advance birthday prezzie (which happened to be this Sat) .. hehe

Terima kasih (dats thank you in malay language) Aarika of Aarikavination for all the goodies and your generosity.

My thanks too to Steph of Dispensing Happiness. Congrats on a job well done!

I wonder when is the next BBM?? .. I cant wait to participate again!

heya aarika

i couldnt agree with you more. BBM is the greatest idea one could have come up with!

i have already tried some of the goodies (there are some which i've yet to try) .. i felt that i just hv to keep them a lil longer .. hahah .. crazy me ..

oh ya, i mentioned in my blog abt the banana creme sandwich biscuit?? my older daughter saw those in my handbag, took it w/o my knowledge and then when i realised, only the biscuits were left .. she licked all the banana creme away .. ;-(

anyways, thanks a million for the package .. u really blew my monday blues away .. hehe .. ;-)
