The photos above are of the package I was given by Yna Reyes, publication director of OMF Literature. I'm not quite sure why she gave me the package—maybe she liked my presentation the previous day at the Books Across Southeast Asia conference or maybe because I asked her about their publications later during the day at the Manila International Bookfair—but what I liked most about the package was that it was addressed to:

Incidentally, if any of you out there still think that blogs are just personal diaries, check out OMF Lit's website, which is actually a very slick blog.
