Mail Day ~ 25 October, 2016, postcards, official cards

I have been on a hiatus of some sorts with my postcrossing hobby. I don’t get to swap and send as many cards as I would love to for the past few months now. I just got busy with one thing too many, I guess.

Last month, I managed to mail a number of postcards that’s been long overdue. I sure hope their recipients get them real soon. Here is the list of the card I sent that day:

  1. V. Lankerd, USA ~ Barasoain Church
  2. M. Ming, Singapore ~ Barasoain Church
  3. M. Arai, Japan ~ Barasoain Church
  4. A. Celik, Turkey ~ Barasoain Church
  5. E. Willems, The Netherlands ~ Barasoain Church
  6. Z. Khalid, Pakistan ~ Fort Santiago
  7. M. Sam, Malaysia ~ Rizal Park
  8. M. Szabia, Poland ~ Rizal Park
  9. K. Dovhopolo, Ukraine ~ Bohol
  10. S. Marger, USA ~ Barasoain Church
  11. M. Markhvinskij, Russian Federation ~ Fish Monger Papemelroti card

These are a bunch of official cards, as it has been ages since I sent cards through them. I still have a few direct swaps to finish and mail before this month ends, along with a number of Christmas that I will send to my friends overseas. I sure hope I can find the time to finish them all soon. Meanwhile, this mums will head on to check these cool music instrument stores online.

Personalities in Postcards: Marilyn Monroe

postcards, postcards of interesting people in history, official cards, USA Who wouldn’t be fascinated with history and the illustrious personalities that make history all the more colorful and appealing? I know, I used to complain about how studying history can be quite a daunting task, but there is something infinitely interesting about it, that probably draws historians and enthusiasts to dabble in it with gusto.

This same thought process ran into my mind when I first started postcrossing, and how it will not only help me brush up on my geography, but also allow me to revisit history whenever I received a card and read further about the subject and the place where it came from. This is the same when I decided that people in postcards are the next thing I would like to collect! They are indeed fascinating lot especially when I get to receive well known personalities like Nelson Mandela and John F. Kennedy, for example.

Marilyn Monroe is the recent personality I got through an official card that came all the way from the UK. Born Norma Jean Mortenson on 01 June, 1926, Marilyn Monroe is probably one of the most distinguished women in modern day history. She is a famed American actress, as well as a model, a singer, and went to star in numerous successful films in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Back in the days, she must have been as sough-after and popular as these Hot Deals. She got a Golden Globe nomination for her outstanding performance in the 1956 film, Bus Stop, and went on to win a Gold Globe Award for her unforgettable performance in the film, Some Like It Hot in 1959.  Continue reading

a few of the cards I sent out today

It sure was a busy month for us and I never had the time to visit one of my favorite places, the Post Office. I was unofficially inactive from postcrossing for a while and have not sent any card for a while so I am really excited to go back to one of my favorite things to do. I stopped doing personal swaps for awhile so am only sending a number of official cards. Here’s the list of the cards I mailed today:

  • Alan D, UK ~ Calamian Deer
  • Svetlana M, Ukraine ~ Angelus
  • Kosel E, Belarus ~ Puerto Princesa Underground River
  • Yimi K, China ~ Crane
  • Steffi R, Germany ~ Prayer Before Meal
  • Emily D, USA ~ Springs Resort
  • Marriette V,Netherlands ~ Rice Farmers
  • Alekseev A, Russian Federation ~ Carabao vintage card

These are the cards I sent through the little man’s account. Am still contemplating on sending cards through my account as most of the cards I sent last time was expired. I do hope the cards will reach their destination promptly should I decide to send more soon.

How’s your postcrossing hobby coming along? I’d love to read about it on a comment below. Happy postcrossing!
