It sure has been particularly quiet around here. This blog, along with the foodie and health and fitness blog, has to take the backseat while I tinker on the mum blog. Nowadays, I was too caught up with mummyhood, the mum blog also has to take the backseat. Been trying my best to draw the little one away from these mobile game apps and youtube, that I am also intentionally keeping myself away from going online, especially when I do not have pressing deadlines and during weekends.

Oh well, I guess it does not help either that our plan to travel more this year did not come to fruition, but hey, there are still a few more months left before 2015 ends and we can still probably squeeze in a couple of travel and outdoor adventures. We have just also been to Museo Pambata twice and have already been to Kidzania, where the little man cannot wait to go, during his school field trip. I hope I find enough time to share about our adventure here real soon.

Anyways, onto the main reason why I am writing this post. I have recently received this South Carolina US State Map card and I am really delighted that I am ticking another card off this 50-card collection. I am just a couple of cards away from completing this set and it is really getting quite exciting! I am glad that I have managed to swap with a couple of lovely people in order to get these cards.Here are a few fun facts about South Carolina:

  • South Carolina capital is Columbia
  • State Area is 30,207 square miles
  • It has become the 8th state on 23 May, 1788
  • State Motto is “Animis opibusque parati” {Prepared in mind and resources}
  • State Song is South Carolina on My Mind
  • State Bird is Carolina Wren
  • State Tree is Palmetto

I also love that Arnold, who sent the card, included these awesome Batman stamps, I love em! I am looking forward to swapping with you soon!

My postcard collection is continuously getting bigger, one day am going to need a separate set of drawers to keep them safe and orderly. I might have to start checking out these drawer slide size should I plan to have drawers built. It should be an exciting future home improvement  project!
