In the previous post, I’ve shared about my postcards collection. Now, I will share my souvenirs collection. I got them all from my friends. They gave me a souvenir from where they’re from and go. I always save well the souvenir that people gave to me. Even I have key chain from my uncle when e visited New York. It’s about 13 years already. So, these are my collections.
I really love to collect water ball or snow globes also. I only have 4 of them right now. Hopefully, I can collect lots of them later.
Last time, when my friend from China, Ada visited me I got a beautiful bag with traditional Chinese puppets on it. She gave me earrings also. They’re lovely. Then showed to Ada all souvenirs that I have when I put the souvenir from her in my souvenir box. She’s surprised that I saved all of them and she promised me to send a postcard from China. But, she did not send me one until now. Maybe she lost my address. Even, she gave me money from China and Macau. She said, “I want you to save it and this is for appreciating your nice way in saving the souvenirs. Ha Ha Ha
I got omamori also from my friend who visited Japan 3 years ago. I got two of them, the left one is omamori for luck and the other one is omamori for love.
I got a Philippine coin from a friend in my Uni. He has visited Philippine for studying there. Then he gave two coins for me and for my best friend who is his close friend also. He said, “save this coin! When you graduate from the uni, you can show this coin to me or you can give it back”. Unfortunately, we don’t know where is he now. He stopped studying at the Uni.
When I meet my friends someday, I will show them that I have saved the souvenirs they gave to me. Even I want to show them to my kids in the future. Each souvenir has a story, so at least I have story that I can tell to my grandchildren also. Ha Ha Ha
