big big love, part 2

hello, I'm back with 'part 2' - the pretty mail i received last couple of months!

 Azusa chan, a lovely friend who recently has been transferred working abroad, now living in Germany! How cool~ from the info, Germany has a very good work culture~ so i think she will be happy living over there! All the best Azusa chan, see you in my next letter!

 Take a closer look on the whole parcel, check on the details lovely people, each of every patch got decorated with
beautiful stamps, stickers, hand writing!

 Hehe, guess what's inside that 'for you' package! It was my belated birthday gift from Azusa.
Hehe... forgot to take picture of it, will repost later, but I can let you know that i love it to the moon and back.
I didn't exaggerated it, the item was amazingly beautiful~

I think no one can resist Japanese kawaii packaged snacks right?
I think i should make a post about 'Japanese snacks taste test' >_< Guess it will be fun right!

 This is temari fu 手まり麩, a type of Japanese croutons but a non-friend version, or i should said its a dried wheat gluten in ball shaped that is usually used in miso soup or any kind of soups! I think there are fresh & dried fu selling in Japan, but of course dried one has a longer shelf life. I can't wait to try it! Hopefully i get to share some picture here!

Look at the colorful fu, so beautiful! Still can't believe its edible! It look a little like our childhood toy marbles / glass ball guli

 Dreamy mail from Paris~

 Cassandre always make the mail look magical with a touch of glitter glue, sparkling sequins, translucent envelope, neon stickers, colorful doilies, seed packs...etc! How's your cotton tree growing there? Very inspiring, feel uplifted after reading her letter.

She sent me hollyhock seeds this time! Yays! I've never seen a hollyhock flower here yet, will sow the seeds real soon!

big big love, part 1

Hello, hello!

Back with my favorites post, don't worry guys I'm still writing! Sometimes, I will slowdown but never stop, simply because i love it! I love the connection that went into each hand-written word,  love sending tiny packages, surprise packages, little things that would make someone happy! ^_^ Come, let's peek into my mailbox.

Wonderful package from Aki chan, she always has this 'never-ending' creativity on how to decorate a cute parcel! ^_^
Isn't it kawaii? It just gets cuter and cuter, the postage stamps, the handwriting, the decorations!

 Look at all these beautiful treasures! Aki chan was so kind to send me that beautiful Hamamonyo tenugui japanese fabric, really love it! Tenugui can be used in various ways - as a handkerchief, as a headwrap, onsen towel, to wrap bento, gifts, or it can be a table runner, luncheon mat, as a cotton sieve in the kitchen and many other ways, almost everything you can think of, specially love the smooth texture of the cotton!
Arigatou Gozaimasu Aki chan!
Naoko chan, she is one of the most creative person I have ever met, a super sweet mama!
I am really inspired by her, from her daily life stories with 2 kids. She make the best decorated snail mail / mail art!

 Now, who doesn't like Muji?
Naoko chan sent me a simple yet useful pocket notebook & an ink pen in that Muji package, i think i am going to use it to record down the yummy recipes that i come across on my daily life, so i won't forget to try and make all the delicious food! Plus some beautiful postcards, stickers & little dried acorns Naoko picked it for me while she was walking down the streets!

 😍 Look, look!!
Naoko chan also sent me this - Nakagawa Masashichi Sabo 中川政七商店 cotton kitchen towel ***screaming!!!***
I have been spoiled! I'm so lucky and blessed to have such amazing people in my life,
they know me so well even know we have never met before in real life!
✿Arigatou Gozaimasu Naoko chan!

Simple yet beautiful letter from Yen Fong, i've been fascinated with wax seals and letters that sealed with wax!
She'd recently opened a stationery store in her hometown Seremban, feel free to stop by anytime!

Here are the beautiful things she sent me, pretty paper stash, vintage ephemera & airmail labels (
which I'm currently collecting )

 A belated birthday gift + souvenirs from my best friend! 
It was like all things i love falls on a kitchen towel >_< haha! I love hydrangea, and everything related to cooking~ so it's perfect she gave me this hydrangea embroidered linen kitchen towel, wohoo~ how cool!

 A simple greeting from Nao chan, she's a cat lover, therefore she love everything with cat! Look at the 'cat' postage stamps, 'cat' washi stickers!

 A very beautiful hand-illustrated letter pressed postcard + so in love with the Lisa Larson red striped cat 'Mikey' filing folder!


Part 2 will be coming soon~
