A surprise that I recently received from the mail is a perfect thing to be added to my collections: the Filipino Bloggers Forum personalized coffee mug and a fridge magnet sticker that came all the way from Philippines via the group’s Admins Rovie and Claire. From CDO to Davao to Texas and finally to Wisconsin, these tokens have gone a long way and are definitely a keeper!

A keeper it is that I just can’t let it go for display only. That’s right! The fridge magnet is now stuck on our fridge and the coffee mug is now a daily part of my beverage consumption. Even though I don’t drink coffee, I do drink Milo or any good chocolate drinks here and I drink tea regularly as well. I was hesitant to use the mug to warm some water in the microwave since there is no label at all that it is microwave-safe but I just trusted my gut feeling that it can stand the heat of the microwave. Sure enough, it did! The husband even concluded that some Philippine products are of good quality; even better than the ones Made in China. And I concur.

To Filipino Bloggers Forum Admins Claire and Rovie– I thank you both! Accordingly, this is a token given to the Top 10 Most Active Bloggers of 2012 and I ranked as one of the two in the Top 9; thus, this share. Although I didn’t really expect to receive this, I am very grateful as it’s one cool and a really beautiful manifestation of being a part of a great Blogger’s Group in Facebook.
