  1. What a lovely post, such wonderful words, and stunning photos; everything you’ve said about our lovely Selma is to true, thank you so much for bringing your post to this tribute FF xx

    • Pang

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Elaine. Wonderful to think that Selma brought us together…once again. 🙂


  2. Tearing up reading this beautiful message Pang! Also that word..I am terrified of it (You know already). I have never interacted with Selma but I can see from your post that she was a beautiful person. Hope she finds abundant love and peace where she is. Sending you tight hugs from here…you are such an amazing person. Your photos are striking yet serene. As if they were just made for this tribute!

    • Pang

      I feel your ‘hugs’ every time we ‘talk,; Sonali. I am so glad you are here, always. I might not totally understand how you feel about the C, but I want to offer huge hugs, however virtual, for whenever you need them.

      Thank you so much for those kind words, my lovely friend.


  3. What a beautiful tribute to a beautiful person. I also felt as if Selma was a friend although we lived a continent apart. I had always joked that if visited Philadelphia I would make her whatever dish she was drooling over in her generous comments on my posts. She held my hand as I was new to blogging also. I also cried when I received the news of Selma’s passing , a testimonial to her impact in our lives. Such a tragic premature loss. Her blog will be a wonderful keepsake.

    • Pang

      So true.. Selma and her blog are beautiful in every which way 🙂

      Thank you so much for stopping by, Johanne.

    • Pang

      Thank you for your kind words, Shashi. We all are sobbing for our Selma.


  4. I am so pleasantly surprised and happy to see you here at the tribute. I absolutely love your blog. What an inventive little preparation you’ve made here for us and in honor of Selma, she would just love it! She was a savory gal, so she would use it a lot too!

    • Pang

      I know what you mean; I disappeared from #FF party for a long while. To tell you the truth, I actually went back because of Selma until I found out about the news.

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Sue. So glad to hear that you like my blog. So glad to reconnect with you again. 🙂


  5. You’ve written an incredibly beautiful tribute, Pang. You’ve taken such meticulous preparations to present the loveliest photos and words. Selma would have absolutely loved it. No, she LOVES it, I know it. XOXO

    • Pang

      I can ‘feel’ that she loves it, too, Angie. Thank you so much for your kind words, lady.
      xoxo


  6. Pang – this is such a beautiful tribute to Selma. While I never knew her, I think you’ve captured her essence just wonderfully and I’m so sorry that you’re having to experience this loss. Sending lots of hugs your way!

    • Pang

      I received all those hugs, Sarah. Thank you SO MUCH 🙂


  7. This was a beautiful tribute Pang. You’ve had the same experiences with Selma that she shared with so many of us newbies. She was a class act, and will be dearly missed. I guess she served as a great example for the rest of us.

    • Pang

      She was one of my idol, Julie. To me, she was like a virtual hug that whenever I was upset, I wanted to run back to her. I am glad we had her for a while 🙂

      Thank you so much for stopping by, Julie 🙂


  8. The hardest path, that we all have to take…

    • Pang

      So true… to tell you the truth, it has not sunk in quite yet

    • Pang

      Thank youuuuuu 🙂


  10. Such a gorgeous tribute to a wonderful friend we all shared so much in common with. Your pictures and Herb Salt offerings are simply stunning! I don’t believe we’ve met before, but I do love what you’ve brought for this tribute to Selma. I’m sure she would have loved this completely.

    • Pang

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Loretta. So glad to have you here even with ‘this circumstance.’ Selma would have love that we finally meet 🙂

    • Pang

      Thank you so much, Arlene 🙂


  11. This such a lovely post, and really captures who Selma was. Friendship comes in all forms, some of the best friends I’ve made have been online.
    These photos are gorgeous and I know Selma would love your herb salt, with how much she loved to combine flavours and spices!

    • Pang

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Michelle. So happy you like the post. So glad to have you here, and I agree that Selma would have loved the herb salt. 🙂


  12. This is the most wonderful tribute to your friend Selma!!! I didn’t know who she was until I saw your post on facebook. I went to her blog and I started sobbing! It doesn’t matter that I didn’t know her, I could just tell she had a beautiful spirit! You are so sweet pang and I know this affected you deeply, I am so sorry for you and anyone who knew her, may she rest in peace! These are some of the prettiest photos I have ever scene and so perfect for this post!!! Many hugs to you! xOOOx

    • Pang

      Thank you SO MUCH for such a kind comment, Steph. I got all your hugs & kisses and I love them. 🙂

      I am so glad you visited Selma’s blog; she has won food52 contest on one of her chicken recipes that I plan to make very soon. It doesn’t matter that you just ‘know’ Selma, I am sure she would love for you to have fun with her recipes regardless. 🙂

      xoxo


  13. What a lovely tribute and beautiful photos too. I didn’t know Selma very well, and only online too, but I confess I’m also getting teary reading your words and those of others who knew her well. Nice to meet you, though at a sad time like this.

    • Pang

      Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by & for the kind comment, Lili. So glad we finally meet 🙂


  14. This is a wonderful tribute to Selma. I felt just like you when I heard the news and I never meet her in person either. It shows how we must treasure what we have today and not, like I tend to do, postpone things for too long!
    Your salts look absolutely delicious and such beautiful pictures! My neighbour has a large lavender plant and I might pop around to her late and see if I can take some and make my own salt, I feel inspired 🙂

    • Pang

      Thank you so much for such kind comment, Petra. 🙂
      You are so right, we have to treasure whom we’re with today and not to postpone any longer.
      Hope you can have some lavender for your salt. 🙂


  15. Such a wonderful tribute to Selma! I couldn’t believe the news that she has passed, and like you, wished I had the chance to meet her in person!
    This salt is absolutely perfect! Selma was fantastic at combining flavours and would have loved this!


  16. Your photos are gorgeous, and your post utterly lovely. Selma wrote one of the first comments on my blog, and was unfailingly supportive. Your are so right… she will be dearly missed…

    • Pang

      Thank you so much for your kind words, MB. I totally agree with you about Selma; she was such a wonderful person. 🙂


  17. This is such a beautiful tribute to Selma. Your words were so moving and I must confess that my eyes got a bit misty reading this. But I’m sure she’s smiling down upon these beautiful photographs and the lovely friend that you are 🙂 <3

    • Pang

      You are so sweet, Sarah. Thank you so much for your kind words. I am so glad you knew Selma, too 🙂
