Silver Princess for the New Year

Silver Princess for the New Year

From the desk of Arden Wong 黃偉德

9th February, 1999.

Hi! My dear friends,

I’m excited to tell you that today is a big day for me: my school begins, my lease for the new accommodation is signed, my first real home-made Australian dinner with the new landlord, and my moving-in to this new self-contained studio apartment in the green, bushy suburb of Berowra, North Sydney. This really marks the beginning for a new life.

Should you want to have my new address or phone number, please write me an e-mail.

Lastly, best wishes for the Valentine’s Day, and may I bring you an Arden’s pick-of-the-year flower: Silver Princess. This is a rare, attractive Eucalypt. Its essence is used to aid people who are at crossroads. So, shall it bring you direction and sense of purpose in the New Year of Rabbit!
