lucky finds

Lucky find no. 1.
Twelve (12) years after it was planted in 2004 when we moved in to our new home, this flowering shrub is still thriving. It endured so many destructive typhoons, withstood the strongest rain and wind, endured the hottest weather during summer and yet it never fails to give me the sweetest and most white flowers season after season.

Lucky find no. 2.
I found a whisker today. I’m sure that i’m not the only one who smiles finding this rare gem. I usually tape it on my planner on the date i found it. If you are a catmom, you just know as to whom the whisker belongs to. Ashton’s whisker (the one in the photo) is medium length, thick and with a dark gray root. Boots being a persian has whiskers that are longer with a slightly gray root. Star being an all white persian has long white and soft whiskers. Tiger a gingercat has long soft white whiskers with a bit of an orange-y root. Kuting, also a gingercat has medium length thick white whiskers. Puti a domestic short hair kitten has baby soft short white whiskers.

It is believed that finding a cat’s whisker is a sign of good luck. I consider them as sweet mementos, cute little treasures and fun things to collect.
