I received three more key rings yesterday from my niece based in Bahrain. She bought them when she took her vacation in Jordan, Israel and France.O h my, I now have more than 200 key rings not counting those I am presently using. Got a white mug too from the Abuel reunion held last February 11 in our province.
There was this coin purse with a Notre Dame commemorative coin inside it which my niece attached to the package. So glad to have those lovely key rings from those places she went to last year and the other prior to that.
My collection began when I was still working at Bank of the Philippine Islands several years ago. One of my office mates gifted me with a gold-plated key ring in the shape of a T-shirt and marked No. 1. Since then several were added to the loot once my close friends learned of my penchant for collecting. I have several now except in other countries in Europe where I only have a few. It is nice to see them lined up sometimes when I clean them. Aside from the key rings, I also used to collect stationeries of different sizes but now that I am no longer active writing by long hand, I stopped buying. I still have some though in different colors and designs too.
It’s a good thing e-books have become the in-thing nowadays. My book shelves are overflowing.Double shelving is now a must for me. I tend to collect several books by the same authors once I like what their writing style. I have some signed copies of books sent by my friends from the US. Except for those Michael Vey series, I almost have all copies of RPE books on hand. I also value my hardbound copy of On Writing by Stephen King. It’s that kind of book where you’ll learn a lot of writing tools. I thought at first it was his autobiography but it was more on how he started writing.
How about you, what are your hobbies?
