For Paternal Or Maternal Grandma?

When I reached home around 1pm this afternoon, I saw an unfamiliar car near my gate. Slowly I drove up cautiously, and upon reaching, I realized that the boy who came out of the car was Andy. I was indeed very surprised to see him cos he told me that he would be reaching very late this evening. This fella... He is always full of cheekiness... purposely said that so that he could surprise me!
Later, in his room he took out these 2 boxes of ginsengbirds' nests. He told me that he and his brother shared to buy these 2 boxes. They said one is for me and one box is for grandmother. But they cannot decide which grandmother to give to... one maternal and one paternal... I told them to decide themselves...

They said its good for my cough...
my never-seem-to-end cough...
So I took 2 bottles just now...

And the other box
To give Paternal or Maternal Granny?
Tomorrow in my next post.. :p

  7. Looks like there are six bottles in each box, is it possible to give each Grandmother three bottles, and put into a nice gift bag with tissue paper to keep them from bumping around in the bag?

  10. Give to both ? Maybe give up your share, so your boyz won't be torn between the grandmas ? I'd do that..
