Posts Tagged ‘key rings’


You might think I am obsessed 🙂  I have been  collecting key rings since I started working. Lately, more were added, gifts from friends and relatives who know my penchant for collecting. I love to have my own library  ( still dreaming of it), and I mean not just corner shelves in our house but a cozy room that  I could use for my books and to display my  collection.

One of my nieces went to Korea last year and she gave me this set of key ring/ballpen. I love the one which came from Dubai, it’s gold plated with beads.

Another one from Dubai, a gift from a friend last year.

A niece who is a teacher gave me two key rings from her trip to Romania  last year. She went on another trip to Jordan and Israel to spend Christmas there and she bought me these two key rings – one from Jordan and  one from Israel.  This last photo has a stone and Holy Water inside. She told me that from now on, she would buy me key rings on her future trips to other countries.

I jokingly told her to go to Europe  next so she could bring me something  from there…hahaha.

Almost a month ago, I blogged about my key chain collections and one of my online friends here, a fellow blogger offered to send me some from the UK. Yesterday, the package finally arrived. They are priceless gifts, something that I would treasure for always.  Wow, I now have some lovely key rings from England.

I love them all but I like the Big Ben best...

Pete regularly comments on my blog posts and I am glad that I am also updated on what life is like in a far away country like the United Kingdom. I find his blogs truly interesting and a joy to read.  Take time to visit his blog.

I asked the post delivery man why they still collect a certain amount when delivering  such small packages and he said that it does not go to the Post Office but  to the Bureau of Customs.They used to charge P40 pesos for it but now it has gone up to P100. Are they overcharging?  I had this previous experience with a private courier  about two years ago.  The package was delivered to me two days after my friend sent it from the US via FedEx. She sent me three paperbacks and paid for the special tariff fee but when it reached me, I was made to pay P1,600 pesos, way more expensive than the total cost of the three books. That is one of the reasons why I never order  anything online, be it books or gadgets that would cost you double the amount when it arrives here.  A friend told me that it is cheaper to send something via ordinary mail but then you are not assured if it will arrive at its destination on time , if it  arrives at all.  I am glad mine did, thank you so much Pete for these lovely key rings.
