There is nothing like receiving a care package from home. It doesn’t matter how crumpled the package looked like nor does it matter that the content of the package is not something expensive. My mum has been sending me a care package for Chinese New Year for the past 15 years. Every year the package received look battered and bruised, there were years where J and I just used a spoon to eat cookie crumbs. The cookies were turned to crumbs on its voyage from Penang, Malaysia to Peoria, IL, USA. The parcel that I receive this year was in such a good shape compared to years before that I had to take a picture. Since it’s Chinese New Year and Valentines, I thought I’d share a little piece of love and happiness from home with all of you.
Happy Chinese New Year.
