Outta Pochta

Dear families, friends, foes and foie gras…
This is an apology entry bearing my 2009 + 1430 apologies for not able to mail you Raya cards like I did last year and the year before that and the year before that year. Not only the subcontract of the Raya card-making fell through due to the subcontractor’s health (Kitreena has been unwell since Tuesday September 8th, has been missing school since September 9th, and is now undergoing treatment for strep throat).


I also just found out that Russian Post (called Pochta) is not as reliable as I was hoping it would be. But to send out one standard-size, standard-weight card by DHL would cost me 2800 Rubels = RM280. Yes! For one card! After a thorough calculation, I figured that it is cheaper to send myself to Malaysia… overweight and all by DHL than sending 25 cards. Hehehe. But no, I am not coming home by DHL. Not by Singapore Airlines or Thai Airways either.


So before most of you head home wherever home is, to be with your loved ones… I am hoping you could catch this 2009 + 1430 apology entry and be reminded that you are in my thoughts and prayers as I carry you in my heart this Aidilfitri. Be blessed, be contented and be safe.
