Is this a modern Pandora’s box for me to guard?
Let me open it to end your curiosity.
This is absolutely a different kind of box which does not contain any evils of the world!
After this chest had been surprisingly handed to me by my vacationing husband, I had no inkling what was inside until I unlocked it.
An unforeseen but very much approved of pasalubong! I held the wooden container close to my heart with unstoppable delight!
Well, my Larry had a brief story to tell. Asked by his co-worker/friend what he wanted from Pakistan since he would have his break ahead of him, my husband instead queried if they also had ethnic accessories. With the affirmative answer, Larry gave a certain budget to his friend to buy me some pieces. He didn’t forget to reiterate that these jewels must be made of indigenous materials and not of gold because he knows my preference very well. 🤩 To cut this abridged story shorter (ha-ha!), the Pakistani wife, who thankfully has an eye for beauty, was given the task to look for these native adornments which are now part of my tapestry and my OOTD.
