UTOPIA: Office Goodies

Office Goodies

Came back from lunch and saw this on my table...someone (either the Project Manager or the sales guy) must have came back from Egypt and distributed this to everyone. Though i might roughly know who, but it's kinda common practice to have foodies or goodies from colleague who travels, especially when i sit in a dept where majority of the people travels and stationed abroad.
flip over side box, the product is indeed from Egypt...not from some duty free shop in those interchange airport that he went (ie UAE/Qatar)
 
The above is dates with almond, which i haven't try out, but i guess it taste like almond + dates (what else, haha!)
Sometime ago, someone who was stationed in Tanzania (east Africa) came back and gave me african tea, well, i tink this has been kept for almost 2 years now...and that colleague has even left the company...looking at this sachet gets me to reminiscent of her...
sure is from Kilimanjaro? i tink it is jst a marketing gimmick since Kilimanjaro consists of volcanic mountains
Fridge magnets, perfumes, scarf, nail clipper, facial mask, chocolates, cookies, sweets, tea, coffee are some of those that i have received so far, but none of that is from my boss, despite being a seasoned traveller.

Office goodies? Most of the time it's key chains.. Key chains or fridge magnets.. Chocolates, yes.. One big packet and everyone get 2 or 3 pieces, hehe..

Getting food/snacks as souvenir is better than receiving key chains, hehe!
