oh, singapore

Here I am, looking very excited that my camera battery charger has finally arrived from the other side of the world:


















And here are all the pictures I've been able to take because of how well the charger replenishes the battery:










Not too pleased with the results, I emailed Singapore to tell them I'm returning the charger and expect a refund. I figured I'd just suck it up and pay the extra money for a charger that actually works.

I didn't expect the email they sent back. After addressing me as "dear friend" and making some seriously profuse apologies (I feel so sorry, so sorry for the item .), they said this:

can I give you my opinion for this matter?
in my opinion,I want to resend you a new one.and we will test one for a long time and resend it to you,then you don't have to buy another one.
and also I just don't want you feel dissappointed with us,
so can you give us the second chance?

please contact with us,if you have any good idea.
good day!


Normally, I would be seriously bugged (still kind of am: I've been without a camera now for a few weeks and my baby is growing!). But I can't help but smile about this effusive email's grammar. Almost makes me want to give them "the second chance."


And now for a picture taken by laptop:

Oh my goodness I'm pretty sure I could see that baby by herself somewhere random in the world and think "That's Kathy's baby."

She looks SO MUCH like you!

Oh, and here's a link to my sister-in-law's baby dress tutorial if you're interested (I see it's on your to-do list)

Danielle and Mark and I still joke about an ad from a new Chinese restaurant that boldly proclaimed, "We delivery!"
What a cute little gummi bear.

That made me smile. I'm sorry about your camera though. How thoroughly frustrating!

Claire's so beautiful. I'm so glad I got to see you guys this last weekend. Let's get together more often, k?

My wife already pointed this out, but she is gorgeous. Phew! I was worried there would be too much Christopher in her. :)

It took me a few minutes to figure out it was you that left a comment on my blog--I am so glad to see you have a beautiful healthy baby girl! She is precious! Kind of a cute email actually from the company with your camera charger.
On choosing a title for your book, doesn't the publisher always change it anyway?:)
