Pampered

30/05/2016

A free night’s stay in a swanky hotel in the golden triangle area of the capital. What a way to end a business trip away. Beyond expectations really. The room is labelled premium so we get located to near the top floor. Then we get super fast wifi for five appliances. The bell boy who attends to us is so informative and polite – obviously well trained. Wow.

The ceiling of the room is so high that one can’t help but be impressed.

Not to mention the little touches that make it a little more special, such as extra towels without being asked.

It made this business-cum-getaway a special and blessed one!

The One That Didn’t Get Away

This was one that definitely didn’t get away. What’s more, it looks like it was caught using legitimate means!

It’s very sad to know that some people dont catch fish. They bomb them, stunning and killing randomly. It’s such and irresponsible and selfish way to get a little bit of fish, causing much destruction.

Knowing this, we are actually thankful to receive this fish cooked like this!

Giving and Receiving

02/05/2016

What an amazing day. I decided to get some snacks for the rest of the office, and one more for myself. This snack was not one that I would normally get. We were all looking forward to tucking in when it arrived via a special delivery.

Then, an unexpected visitor to the office stops for a while longer and so I decide to give my share away. I have to confess that I had slight regrets as I listened to the positive comments of the others as they tasted and evaluated. But just ever so slightly. Then I carried on with my work.

Suddenly another visitor comes by. She doesn’t break a stride as she drops a small packet of biscuits on my desk, saying “My daughter made this, it’s for you to try.” Speechless, delighted, awed. Those are the words to describe what went through me.

Later, as I bit into this lovely offering, I had to make another confession – these were far better than the store bought goodies I missed. I can always buy those another time, rare though it might be. These lovingly-made biscuits however, were God-sent! And they were very very tasty indeed!
