Thank You For Being A Friend To 3 Ladies We Met

For the 3 people, I met from another Asian city, I'd like to thank them for the gifts they sent via snail mail, which arrived so quickly; it was just a week after meeting them.

An illustration of the 3 ladies I met during my walk around my environment.

I happened to be doing my daily walk and saw three foreign, Asian ladies taking pictures of the area. I asked them politely why they were so interested in the place. 

They spoke in English and exclaimed that they used to live in Singapore and loved the island with its peaceful environment. I volunteered to take their pictures for them. I introduced them to my wife and in that magic moment we all became friends and promised to keep in touch. That was only some days ago.

Lo and behold, a few evenings later we received golden packages sent to my doorsteps. We thank them for the beautiful and useful gifts they sent. Such lovely presents for a simple gesture. How can we forget?

There's usually a song for every occasion. So for my three new friends from a faraway place, the song's for you...

(Comparatively, Singapore's very safe but for ladies who travel on their own, do be careful.  Low crime doesn't mean no crime. Just a cautionary advice.)

Wow! Lovely. Life can be so simple... Just a click and nice friends found. They must have felt the bond immediately that day.

Lucky you. What did they give you. And you have a preemptive warning on the blog for ladies to beware? You must have looked "goody-goody" to them.

That's one of the most loved TV theme songs of our era, loved by all the Golden Girls - beautiful lyrics, even appropriate until today.
Cheers.

We Can Only Be Grateful When We Are Surrounded By Good People. That Is An Important Concern In This Time Of Our Life Because The People You Surround Yourself Are A Reflection Of You.
