This is called 'Local Guides Love'.
Yes, she is @shirnio who lives in Singapore now (her home country is Malaysia). Last month, one of our moderators Md. Muhibur Rahman went to Singapore for a short trip, he met Shirni there. After Muhib came back to Bangladesh, he called me. That day I was busy and I could not meet Muhib. @PavelS went to meet Muhib. And after reaching home, I was astonished to see a bag full of gifts!!!
Yap, Shirni send me awesome gifts, souvenir, Durian cake and specially her hand-made Fan! Thank u so much with lots of love dear!
I love the taste of durian cake. In this summer season back in my home here, when I have seen your hand made fan, that’s made me feel awesome.
And I wish from the bottom of my heart that, someday, somewhere we will meet and have much fun together, for sure. We will go to a long-drive and capture photos and finally will upload them at Local Guides Connect. I can’t control my emotion for the time to come when you and I will do it.
To me, Local Guides is like family. There are almost 100 Local Guides from 37 countries that I know personally, and they inspire me all the time for my work. It does not much matter where you live, and what you do; if you are a local guide, you are connected to bigger family. Google Local Guides is a big platform for many like me it is indeed a big family as well.
Thank you Md. Muhibur Rahman for chocolates what you have brought all the way from Singapore. I love chocolates!
Thank u Local Guides! For you today, I have many awesome friends from around the world and I can know their cultures and history and feelings and so on.
I am feeling honored and proud to be a part of it. I am truly fascinated by all that Google Local Guides offers. More than anything, I like and love the friendship it brings along.

@SumaiyaZafrinC, so happy for you! You will always be a part of the #LGSummit16 family. You got your very own #MadebyShirni fan from the lovely @shirnio. She doesn't give that many out because she hand makes #LocalGuides fan! = )
