A little humour goes a long way...

A marvelous post on "Quilt" by our sister Jaimez from Canada!


Dear sisters, I almost make history today! I am this close to becoming the first woman ever who looks into the mirror and gets scared to death by HERSELF. So dear Yong Joon ssi and ladies, please take it easy ok? ......

It’s been reported that there has been a skyrocketing increase in female patronage into spas and esthetics salons for the past week.
Female clients walking in all displayed the same traits : lost-puppy look, panda eyes, elephant skin and loose ponytail.
It is believed that they all suffered from sleepless nights and major worrying for the SAME gorgeous Korean man!
Most popular services requested include the ‘Emergency facial resuscitation’, ‘Intensive peel till you drop’ and the ‘No-pain no-gain facelift’ treatment packages.
Major cosmetics companies in Asia, North America and Europe also apologized that the following products are currently out-of-stock until further notice (or until THAT gorgeous Korean man becomes happier) :

- all eye or nose or wherever-you-need concealers and correctors
- all firming or lifting or fortifying or revitalizing moisturizers and serums
- all wrinkle-minimizing or skin-detoxifying or complexion-smoothing or radiance-boosting masks and scrubs

Lastly, Scotties (little softie) and Kleenex inc. both announced a revenue hike of 300% in tissue sales primarily in the ‘3-ply, ultra-soft, tear-stopper’ category.
To meet the explosive demand, both companies promise to boost production by engaging in a full-gear 24-hour shift. Those poor trees must be shaking in the forest now!

Thanks for posting this, flowerbossa!

I love the joon bear in the picture. Is he your personal possession? He seems so content in his spot. I read your translation into Japanese. I recognized some Kanji (eventhough I am not good at it), it is really interesting!

Anyway, thanks for posting and take care!

Hi jaime,

Thank you for allowing me to translate your writing. I have posted it on a Japanese site,too, and they also enjoyed it.

Is your family from Japan?
I didn't realize that you know some Japanese. Come visit us sometime!

Yes, that's my dear bear Sebastian.
Please be his auntie!

Hi Auntie Camille!

Yes, this picture was taken right after I came to live at mommy's place in Yokohama.

Hope to see you someday!
