Parcel from Bhutan

"Words left unsaid will sit inside your mind screaming" Raine Cooper

I am very excited to share this beautiful moment I had with my daughter this evening.

Today, on this beautiful rainy day, I checked my mailbox as Bumchu and I returned from the city library. 

I saw a "safe drop" message from post office. I was so excited, my long waited parcel is waiting for me to collect it. It is very rare I get such thoughtful gifts from Bhutan so I was obviously over the moon and feeling lucky to have special friends in Bhutan.

When I received the parcel, call it crazy or funny, I closed my eyes, brushed my nose close to the package and took a deep breath. I thought, "the Bhutanese smell must have disappeared in transit."

When Bumchu saw the yellow package, she thought it is something to eat so she couldn't keep her excitement down either. She said, "Nang nang"  with her two cute small hands reaching out for the parcel.

Both of us couldn't contain our 'own' excitement and we opened it as soon as we got home.

Voila! I exclaimed, "YOUR KIRA and TEGO" 

She gave a huge hug like it was  her toy. I smiled and explained to her, "This is dress, you wear it" feeling tremendously happy and thankful for amazing people in my life.

There she goes, totally rocking her new outfit.

I probably must have thanked numerous times  but anyway, thank you Ana Luzee and my dear friend Kezang for sending your love to Bumchu.



  1. Your sweet little girl is adorable. What a fun surprise for you two! Thanks so much for sharing your new treasure with us. May 2016 bring you both wonderful blessings!

  2. OMG! I think I will burst from cuteness overload here hehe. This lil girl looks so adorable in her dress. I feel a tinge of sadness and desperation when you smell the parcel anticipating that the Bhutanese smell might have evaporated in transit.This is life.

    Sending you hugs and prayers.

    1. Thank you Rekha for your beautiful comment.
      In a month or so, I will be smelling Monu's book. Haha.

      Lots of love and hugs from here too :)

  3. Honesty, the whole excitement got a little tainted but I had to say that where there is a will, there is a way. We are more than glad that it made its safe route there and tell you what, Bumchu is one of a kind! Ha-ha. Love her much.
