29.04.2013 | 手信禮物

[Volume 8 Issue 4, #1713]
去旅行嘅時候, 我唔係個喜歡或習慣買手信嘅人.. 如果真係買手信嘅話, 絕對係因為某樣嘢非常之吸引我, 而且我係一個起兩個止, 買個意思咁唧.. 肯定唔會好似有啲人咁, 因為親友眾多, 所以一定要上倉咁先夠派街坊, 不過見佢哋有本事可以買咁多, 我又非常之戥佢哋開心喎.. 買手信都真係一門學問呀, 要順得哥情不失嫂意, 要買得大體但係又唔可以太貴, 要實用得嚟又盡顯心思.. 我自問冇呢個能力喇, 與其兩頭不到岸, 不如索性唔鬼買好喇, 哈哈!! 不過最近因為受各界朋友恩惠不少, 所以今後嘅旅行, 係不得不為各位捎些手信喇, 禮尚往來咁我先唔會覺得唔好意思嘛.. 講開又講, 大家最討厭收到咩手信咁呢?? 係鎖匙扣定朱古力?? 哈哈.. :D
whenever i travel, i never like or used to buy souvenirs.. even if i buy, that would be because something really attracts me, but i will only get a few and not anything excess for myself.. unlike some who have a lot of friends and relatives, i totally understand that they need to stock up one big bulk to have enough for everyone, i indeed feel happy for them for their ability to buy so much actually.. buying souvenirs is one big knowledge, you want to please every single one, you want to get something decent yet not too expensive, you want to get something practical and yet looks special.. i know i do not have such capability, hence to avoid situations where ends do not meet, i rather not get any at all, haha!! anyway, due to the many gifts i got from friends lately, i guess from now on i cannot avoid skipping buying some souvenirs for them, else i would feel uneasy for only receiving but not giving.. having said that, what kind of souvenirs you hate most to receive?? keychains or chocolates?? haha.. :D

    1. True, getting souvenirs can be quite a headache and that is besides the extra weight and space you will require to pack them all in. It's always a good idea to pack an extra bag (for shopping). :)

    1. I hate to buy souvenirs sometimes, cause there's nothing to buy, and doesn't really know the person like it or not!!! =[

      Delete
    2. I collect key chain so I don't mind to receive key chain as souvenir, while chocolate is not bad too, I love to eat chocolate!

      Delete
    3. I used to my key chain for my best friend wherever I go, but end up she just ask me stop buying key chain for her because she has enough that can wear like earring already cause she has no place to hang it anymore...!!! =[

      Delete
  3. Buying is easy! Carting the whole lot home is the problem...especially now that the airlines are so strict.

    Me? No chocolates for me, please. I get so much of that...people will always give me, especially imported ones from overseas...but I'm cutting down on sweet stuff so I hardly ever eat. My missus and daughter would eat though not that much - we still have heaps in the fridge.

    1. Anay, though I didn't tell you , I love the Singapore fridge magnet and the Hello Kitty snowball that you gave me as Christmas presents very very much. Appreciate those gifts very much.

      Delete
    2. I did not get any!!! All I got was a postcard!!! Tsk! Tsk! LOL!!!!

      Delete
    3. Anay is good what.

      I send postcards of different places I visited... and address them to me. Collect stamps. LOL

      Delete
    4. Annay is a very sweet guy. Ah Hua appreciates all his gifts and keeps them in a safe box. Once a month, Ah Hua will takes them out, clean and polish them.

      So does SK Ah Boy... all my precious is well-kept :)

      Delete
    5. Anay...thank you for your postcard leh. No matter big or small things it was really thoughtful of you to send .

      Delete
  8. I think fridge magnets are most popular items. They are flat, small, light and popular with recipients. Good chocolates are not cheap and they will get crushed & melt easily. It is No-No in my list.

    1. I agree with Anay, I love fridge magnet more than chocolates and key chains.

    2. I don't mind key chains nor magnets nor chocolates, it's the heart that counts.

    3. true....keychains also light

      Delete
  9. SK Thambee is soooooo popular until everyone gave him too much souvenir. Do you get sick of them or space running out???

  11. I don't like keychains but who would hate chocolates??? :) In fact, I think chocolates are a safe choice because it's something that generally people like, and it's a consumable so it doesn't take up space after you eat it. If you get something else that they don't like, they might have to crack their head on what to do with it and worse, figure out where to store it! Having said that, I love getting fridge magnets as souvenirs! ;)

    1. I'm afraid I don't. Never a fan really and besides, I have to cut down on sweet things, especially at my age. Love Scottish shortbread, rich fragrant butter cookies...but no Arnotts!!! We have lots here in Sibu and I do not think they're nice...and so expensive, some more.

      Delete
    2. I like chocolate but in small amount la...not big big box coz difficult to finish and some choc cant keep long.

      Delete
  12. Good morning, SK and all! Oh, I never missed buying souvenirs, mainly for my girl and for the house. Also for friends too but not all. Usually I buy extras too as gifts maybe birthdays etc.

    1. I usually buy fridge magnets, key chains and postcards too. Not forgetting t-shirts which my girl always remind me to get from every place that I visit. This time my girl wants a backpack from my upcoming holiday.

      Delete
    2. Chocolates? It depends. If they are only found there and nowhere else, I might consider. Otherwise, I will just get them from KLIA chocolates centre.

      Delete
    3. But I love fridge magnets. I can stick them on the fridge door. I have a big collection now.

      Delete
    4. T shirt is a good choice if for family. But if for friend especially bloggers friend sits hard t choose coz not sure of the size.

    1. I don't hate souvenirs la! I am thankful if people remember to get me souvenirs from anywhere ;)

      But only thing is, I feel that keychain is quite a waste la! I mean no doubt it's the most common and easiest souvenir to locate but how many can we use at once, right?
      But I do keep all the keychains I got in a bag =)

      Delete
    2. So I don't mind if people get me food instead, though certain food cannot be kept for too long, at least I can share with family/friends.

      Delete
    3. And yes, you should start buying souvenirs for friends already if you're travelling, hehe :p
      Just choose something more practical lo~

      Delete
    4. But sometimes buying souvenirs for friends also quite headache, if you buy you have to buy for everyone already, if not others will start to get jealous/tease you...
      In my case, I will only buy for closest friends, and also depends if that person bought me anything before? If not, I'll just skip buying him/her ;) (Haha I am like that!)

    5. ya lor...people give we take la :p

      Regardless what we are given, we are happy because it;s the thoughts that count not the material. :)

  15. Anyway, if you are planning for a holiday soon, just go and have fun. Forget about buying souvenirs. I know how leceh it will be to buy something that suit every one. Mine as well, you focus on the holiday, relax your mind, don't stress yourself of getting a souvenir. Put that as lower priority la!

    1. Yea I agree, most important is to enjoy and have fun. Souvenirs, get them only if you see something really nice.

    2. For me, buying souvenirs is one of the fun part of going on vacation. :)

    1. Me too!

      Chocolates are always OK for me.

      Send some over! LOL

  17. 其實大部份的人都喜歡買吃的,但是吃的東西吃完就沒有了咯。
    用的話,近年來,面膜是一個選擇,因為不占地方。鎖匙扣雖然比較少人使用,但是卻是我喜歡買的,也是因為不占地方。不然你去旅行就會一個包包去,兩三個包回來。

  18. well, if i were to travel? i guess souvenirs will be a great thing
    to have for remembrance and for gifts too, but then i think pictures and
    foods would be my priorities hahahaa

  22. I buy a lot of souvenirs when I travel. Mostly the same stuffs to be given to all! LoL! Unless my mom, she collects fridge magnet so I must make sure I get one each time we travel.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Actually I don't really like to buy souvenirs too, but then souvenirs are really a nice way to bring something back from a trip and have fond memories of that trip!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I make it a point to buy at least one fridge magnet and the "I heart" T-shirt (eg. I heart Bali) with every new place I travel to.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I collect fridge magnets from different countries and stick them all onto my fridge. If one day my fridge is full with those magnets, I will need to buy a second fridge hahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't mind receiving fridge magnets but not so fond of key chains though. But the fridge magnets must be beautiful and not too cheapskate hahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Chocolates are nice too but will they melt? That will be such a mess! So better not haha!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would say anything special is good for souvenir - not necessarily have to be expensive. But never ever buy things like photo frame. That really sucks!

    ReplyDelete
  29. So next time you travel, don't forget to get me a souvenir yeah? Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'll request for fridge magnet :P

    ReplyDelete
  31. As for me so far so good no complains on souvenir received from friends.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Got a friend who would request for nice spoon and for Bananaz's favorite is a pair of cute scissors. Most common items were mentioned above like keychain, fridge magnets. Sometimes book marks & soft toys are a good buy not so much on chocs when in Asian countries but with exception when going to European countries. Like it or not we never gotta buy home souvenirs for friends, colleagues & relatives.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I never had a chance to travel that far so i never had a chance to buy souvenirs either LOL

    ReplyDelete
  34. though i used to received souvenirs from my friends and i really treasured them.. I don't like nothing hahaha whether it's a key chain or chocolates it is perfectly fine as long as it came from the bottom of their heart hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  35. errr i am a frugal guy so i guess i will not really buy a lot in case that i will encounter such situation. Except if there are freebies or those "buy one take oe" offers LOL

    1. Whenever I go vacation, souvenir is always come into my mind whether to get them or not. Foremost, we must enjoy and have fun during our holidays...no matter where you are. If we see nice souvenir then we get it. If is not, I think it is ok.
