I’ve been joining the Weekend Blog Follower Caravan for as long as I can remember + for a bit of nostalgia, you can check out my very first WBFC post here. It has been a cool + fascinating way to gather more blog followers + earn new friends, as well. + what do you know, just a moment ago, as I browse through my Facebook timeline checking out updates from friends + colleagues, I just found out WBFC made me $5 richer! Thank you so much to our beloved sponsors. ^_^

Anyway, for this week, it is musings on meanderings‘ {along with A Network of Entertainmentturn to sponsor for our caravan. What a great way to bid goodbye to 2011 + to usher in the New Year, right? So, do join us! Our task, by the way, is to follow each other via NetworkedBlog. My widget’s up on my sidebar, you just have to scroll down a bit more, thanks! :)

How do we play Weekend Blog Followers Caravan again? Simply click on the badge to get to our host’s post for more details.  Now on with meandering through the hop! :)

postcard perfect: a postcard for myself

postcard perfect, souvenir, postcards

I sent this to none other than myself during our Postcrossing Enthusiast Meet-Up {I have yet to blog about it}, know why it is quite special? It was signed by all the PE members in attendance that day, so it is my little priceless memento of that encounter, along with a bag of postcards + other freebies that I was able to bring home that day, not to mention am sending this straight from the Manila Central Post Office {which I’ve been for the first time that day, too ^_^}

In the spirit of the season, I have a little good news. I have 7 more of these signed cards + I will mail it to the first 7 persons to comment on this post. Just a little token before the year ends.

So comment away + fill out my contact form with your mailing details. I shall be mailing these postcards as soon as the 7 recipients are complete.

I will wait for your comments then + here’s to an eventful several days before 2012! ^_^

This will be my share for this week’s Postcard Perfect, too…

Snowed In?

christmas, places, travel, destination,

Snowed it this Christmas? How I wish. But the family have been to Manila Ocean Park recently + we’ve experienced exactly that! 6 degrees temperature + my nose were hovering near bleeding-point! But we enjoyed it, nevertheless, especially the little man, who was sleeping soundly as we entered the Snow Village. He probably liked the cold weather. Proof is that he woke up immediately after we went out!

Apart from our first brush with snow, we’ve also seen adorable penguins + sea lions there, along with hundreds of fishes + other beautiful attractions. I shall be posting more about it soon.

christmas, places, travel, destination

I know most of us are taking advantage of the holiday break to go on traveling or vacationing with the family. As for me, I am most tempted to use whatever bit of downtime I’ve got to brush up on my languages, too, + learn a new one. How does confronto noleggio auto sounds to you?

Snowed in or not, I still wish everyone a very meaningful Christmas celebration. May we find happiness + peace in the company of our families + loved ones! Here’s also wishing that victims of Typhoon Sendong down south will also find it in their hearts to celebrate in the midst of tragedy.

Merry Christmas meanderers!
