My Favorite Ways To Say Thanks

I love traveling, and I love food. Quite often I choose to travel to a destination just to sample the local cuisine. Of course, I wouldn’t be able to travel and enjoy all the gorgeous meals I’ve had without the hospitality of some wonderful people I’ve met. And when people do those lovely things for you, I love to say thanks in my own way. Here are some of the best ways I’ve found to say thank you:
Flowers
Sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers is a lovely way to say thank you when someone has put you up in their home. It takes time, effort and lots of extra cleaning and tidying to have a guest stay in your home. I really do appreciate all that extra work when I stay at a friend’s home or with my family. Arranging a flower delivery by Flowers For Everyone offers a token of thanks after I’ve left. It says I’m remembering having a lovely time.
Wine
When I am invited to a home-cooked dinner, I think it is polite to bring something for the table. Lots of people like to bring a bottle of wine. Not all my dinner parties include alcohol, though. I’m just as happy bringing the dessert! Sometimes it’s nice to bring a fruit basket. They always look so beautifully presented as well. It all depends on how healthy I’m trying to be!
Card
Sometimes when I’m on my travels, I find I’m offered extra help here and there. Most people are really generous with their time and go out of their way to make sure I’m comfortable. It’s really sweet, so I try to remember that with a thank you card. It’s always nice to receive a thank you after you’ve helped someone. I’ve even sent them to companies whose staff have gone the extra mile to make me feel welcome.   I love music and I will check out how much are keyboards are.  After purchasing one, I will learn up and dedicate a song to my love one!  That would make a great gift too!
Reciprocation
Of course the best way to say thanks is to reciprocate. If I’ve had a lovely meal with a friend, then I want to invite them to my home to enjoy the same. I love spending time with people. And best of all, I love a good meal! I do my best to cater to all tastes. I try to provide the same good accommodation when I can too.
Gift
If you know the person well that you want to thank, then you might be able to select the perfect gift. Perhaps they’re into horse riding? A crystal ornament of a horse can be a lovely way to say thanks. My musically minded friends always love it if I find them a rare recording of a much-loved artist. Gifts come in all shapes and sizes. You don’t have to spend a lot of money. After all, it’s the thought that counts.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose?

Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing....

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
