In 1985......

No history lesson here, but there is something that I would like to share with you......

More than 27 years ago, we had our very first family trip to Singapore and KL. I was 8 years old that time, my sis was 4 and bro was 3 years old then. In Singapore, we stayed in my aunt's house (my dad's elder sister) for few days. Then we took the rail train to KL and stayed there for few days before headed home. Although I can't remember the whole trip but I remember some of the fond moments. There was a photo album we took throughout our vacation that my mum still keep well. Maybe one day I shall share one of the pictures with you. *wink*

Ok, back to my previous post when I mentioned that my mum gave me something yesterday morning. It was not a heirloom as a blogger friend guessed. It was nothing expensive. However it was a rattan basket my mum bought in KL back in 1985. So, this basket has been more than 27 years old and it was still in good condition. I was so surprised seeing this basket when my mum shown me because I never remember this basket at all. Why not? I was so young that time. And she has been keeping it in her wardrobe all this while!

Don't you like it? I fall in love with it at first sight!


Solid looking basket. I like the way the clips work.






Nice right?? And maybe I can keep some of Baby Jay's toys in there too. He loves to bring his toys around when ever we go out, so this basket will help in keeping them in one place.




Why I said it was a memorable present to me? Because it reminded me of my family vacation back then. And it was the first and only vacation we have together. After so many years, we never went any places for holiday together as a family. Maybe some day we can go somewhere for holiday together again! This round, with new addition, i.e. hubby and kids. *wink*
