This gift looks very pretty. It is a gift from someone I met for the very first time today. Very much as I have a sweet tooth, 20 pieces of 'nyonya kuih' is way too much to be consumed.
I was given this gift because I gave the giver something else first, of course, without expecting anything in return. I will be sharing it with others who has given me something else earlier.
Part of life is about giving and sharing. This is just an example of the day.
