when the gals in the office told me that one of our other colleagues who was with me at vung tau brought back a gift for me from the pax we met over in vung tau- and that it was made of wood and pretty heavy, i thought- couldn't be that bad. right? maybe a wooden jewellery box of some sorts.
but...when he pulled it out of his toyota scenic, my jaw fell to the floor. It was a 5kg parcel, and really made of REAL wood. Real heavy dark wood! i couldn't believe he had to lug back 5 of those for those of us who left Vung Tau early. Lucky for him, the travel mates had sq gold class membership which allows for extra 20kg baggage- or not he'd have been slapped with a hefty excess baggage fee.

we unwrapped it in the office together. it's pretty. but not quite me. a little corny i think. no? i suppose if i had a very jungle themed room, all in dark greens and cream hues, it may work. but still, quite corny i think.
anyhow, there's nowhere to display it at home, so its sitting at one of my bosses cubicle for now. until we get bored of it, and maybe auction it off for charity. i suppose
