From thx thx thx
Have you said 'thank you' to someone or something today? 'Thank you' sounds like a simple word, but the effect is powerful. With Ramadhan is a perfect moment to exercise our gratitude, allow me to introduce thx thx thx, a blog that chronicles Leah Dieterich's daily exercise of gratitude. The blogs shows that there is always something to be thankful for.
In the spirit of Ramadhan, I'd like to say thank you to Stefanie from the Netherlands and Arthur from the U.S., two Postcrossing members who sent me beautiful postcards from their hometown. Thank you guys, you made my days! :)
The first postcard came all the way from the Netherlands and I almost screamed when I saw the picture. Tono dan Tini was one of my favorite childhood storybooks! I read this book when I was a kid, because D worked in the publishing company that released the Indonesian translation so he brought one book for me. Stefanie said that in her country, the title was Jip en Janneke.
The second bore the picture of above-ground tombs in New Orleans cemeteries, often referred to as Cities of the Dead. Since the water table in the area is high, people can not bury the caskets because unpredictable flooding will pop the casket out of the ground. Arthur said that we could take tours to this area. Hm, interesting.
Have a superb Sunday!
