Finally, it has arrived! Rather, I was able to claim it. Holly, if you're reading this, it's not your fault nor mine. Haha. The shipping address is correct, only our Customs held it up on their office. I don't know why, there's nothing suspicious about the package, right? I even paid a certain amount of fee. I have the official receipt so at least I know it's legal and taxed. Alright, I'm just leaving it to them, whatever SOP they've got there I'm still happy and thankful that I've got my prize!

Their autograph make this book more sentimental. Thanks to Holly Jahangiri and Ryan Shaw!


I was able to finish the book in one sitting. Not only because it's short but because it's interesting that you'd rather finish it once you have started than shove the book and continue the next day.

So, what can I say?

It was my first time to read Holly Jahangiri's work and being a kid at heart, I was able to appreciate it. Nice. I am actually planning to bring the book with me when I visit Batangas so that my siblings can read it, too! I'll take a photo of it and my youngest sister. Haha!

This is not the official review of that book. I will post it on my other review site (SWORD). I'm just sharing my excitement to everyone.

Though the book is intended for children, grown ups can also learn from it. I don't know what a guppy is until I've read it. Eh? Right! Because I'm more familiar with gold fish. All through out, I think Irma will get a puppy. Haha. You really have to read the book to find out what happened. There's something more than just the title.

Thanks Holly! From now on, I will officially review all books, movies, and products that will be recommended and given to me. :)

Update:

As promised, here's a snapshot of my youngest sister reading the book:

Oh, good, finally!! I was really getting worried. I think all copies are finally accounted for and in the proper hands, now. Goodness - you should keep all the postal notices and marks as a souvenir of Irma's adventures in the Philippines. Sorry it was a bit of trouble for you, and SO glad it wasn't my fault! LOL - I thought surely I didn't get a simple address all wrong (esp. when it was a matter of cut and paste from your email). I am glad you and your little sister both enjoyed the story.

I don't know if you've visited my blog, lately, but I've posted a couple of short stories there this week that you might enjoy. There's one more in the queue, as well, for Valentine's Day.

hi liz! just wanted to ask something. i ordered magazines from ebay kc and arnd 1st week of feb i received a registry notice from the post office. it seems they held up my parcel as well, although word puzzles lng nman yun. anyway, a 35php customs fee was noted on the notice. is that the same as the fee you paid? my 1-month timeframe isn't due until next week. that's when i'm planning to get my parcel. sorry for the question. 1st time ko kc with this.
