My husband by profession is a veterinarian who specializes in the field of swine management. He is a down-to-earth person, full of wits, contented in living a simple life, a homebody, a loving and responsible husband and father and a collector.
Aside from his numerous compilations of medical books, he is fond of collecting piggy figurines as a souvenir. Over the years, he accumulated loads of piggy keepsakes from the places he traveled, domestic or international and mementos from conventions he attended. Whenever we go on some place and found a cute piggy figurine he will surely never miss purchasing it. Some are gifts from friends and relatives.
This big red piggy bank was given by one of his clients last Chinese New Year 2012.
The one holding money was our sons’ gift on his last birthday, while the red one came from a family friend and the third one was a token from Insular Life.
Picture above are the piggy collection from USA, Canada and Europe, the green elephant is from Thaliand 🙂
The big one at the back is also a piggy bank, Buddha replica a gift from a friend, and a piggy pencil holder at the far right.
I clean the figurines on a quarterly basis and surely, in the years to come a lot more will be added to my husband’s precious collection 🙂
