I’m glad that I am now able to write something here again. I’m well aware that I haven’t been so active throughout the month of August and that’s because I’ve been very preoccupied with so many things after the wedding.

Some of it became overwhelming so I took a break from blogging for a few weeks. I couldn’t seem to get my thoughts organized, so much have happened and there are just so many things that I want to write about. Because of that, I’ll just write them all now and schedule them for later.

Stay tuned because it’s my birthday month and I might collaborate with my fellow bloggers for another giveaway. (wink)

That being said, I’ll start the blog post scheduling with a live one.

So, recently Tim and I opened an online English tutorial service website for my former Spanish and Korean students. We bought the domain name last month and our first student recently visited the Philippines and personally enrolled to our online tutoring school. She insisted that I meet her and her husband last Sunday, September 2nd at Hyatt Hotel in City of Dreams.

When we got there, she and her husband gave us a huge paper bag that contains the following:



All that plus a Samsung power bank, more ramyeon (I gave some to my in law’s) and her tuition for this month.

I know it’s nothing out of the ordinary and does not seem much, but I really want to write about it because it was just so thoughtful of my student to give Tim and I some late wedding presents. It wasn’t the first time I received presents from my students abroad, but meeting a foreign student in person is really special. We bonded and talked over a cup of coffee before bidding each other goodbye.

I cannot express in words how thankful I am to be blessed with such a thoughtful, straight-forward, and kind student. Well, that is all for this post, I’ll write the other ones later.

What about you? What was the best present you’ve ever received? ^_^
