Mailday Tuesday {02.09}

It felt like ages ago since I have last been to the local Post Office to mail postcards and I am just glad that I was able to find the time to write on the cards yesterday to be able to post them all today. My swaps are a bit delayed and the cards for Postcrossing.com ought to have been sent weeks ago, but I hope my swapmates and pals from the postcrossing site won’t mind. It took me awhile to finish putting the stamps on the cards but I really enjoyed the exercise, I just wish I had more stamp designs to choose from.

Here is the list of the cards I posted today, see if you can find your name in it! 🙂

Direct Swap

  1. Nicoletta P, Italy ~ Fort Santiago big, black card
  2. Lai S, Malaysia ~ Dinagat Island card
  3. Arnold P, TX ~ Ati-Atihan big, black card
  4. Katerina H, Czech Republic ~ Batanes card
  5. Akhil K, India ~ Fort Santiago meet-up card


  1. Karin B, Germany ~ Dinagat Island
  2. Serhiy L, Ukraine ~ Pasig River
  3. Darafey Y, Belarus ~ Bacolod Fishing Port
  4. Marketa K, Czech Republic ~ Manila City Hall
  5. Marjatta A, Finland ~ Tubbataha Reef
  6. Ankit A, India ~  Cigarmakers at the turn of the century vintage card
  7. Sugar, China ~ Fruit stand in Tagaytay
  8. Larry D, USA ~ Balot Vendor by Vicente Manansala
  9. Master Leo M, UK ~ Owl
  10. Astrid G, Germany ~ Bacolod Fish Port
  11. Ada P, The Netherlands ~ Batanes
  12. Alekseeva N, Russian Federation ~ Spring River in Antique

I do hope these cards will reach their respective destinations safe and fast. Time now to look for more swaps so that I might be able to complete my numerous collections. Will be hitting a couple of our postcrossing group on Facebook after I am done helping the little man with his homework and after I finished reading about this awesome stuff On Sale!

postcard wishlist: florida map card

postcards, map cards, Florida

I would love to build up my collection of map cards this year + one of the many postcard that I would love to receive in the mail is this Florida map card. Imagine including Mickey Mouse in it, I just have to have one of these! 🙂

Mickey Mouse is one of my son’s ultimate favorites + I made a vow to bring him to Disney Land {in Hongkong} when he turns 7. I do not know how I’d manage to do that, with me being jobless + all, but I promise I will. If I can afford it, I would probably bring him to Disney Euro or The Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. I bet he will have loads of fun staying at the Disney Hotel or any one of those plush yet affordable  Orlando Hotels + having his photographs taken with the world-famous mouse + the other well-loved Disney characters around. Oh well, that is probably wishful thinking, but who knows, I might win the lottery one day + afford to bring the little man to any destination he chooses by then 🙂

With the Disney Resort + other amusement parks, not to mention the numerous beaches, I bet one will never run out of fun things to do in Florida. Anyway, did you know that Florida was originally baptized as La Florida or The Flowery Land +  Tallahassee is the state capital. Aside from that, did you also know that it is the fourth most populous state + has the longest coastline in the U.S? You can check out this Facebook for more interesting trivia about Florida, meanwhile, let me just brood on how I’d manage to save enough to bring my little man there when the time comes. +, oh, do contact me in case you want to trade this card with me, right? 🙂

mail day friday 01.27

postcrossing, personal swap

It has been a few weeks since I last visited the Post Office + I’m glad my sister agreed to mail my postcards last Friday, just so I won’t be too late in sending them out. Sorry for the delay, swap friends, I meant to send these postcards on time, but I was either too busy to go down the PO or have lost track of my swapping that I would just recall some of them at a much later time. But rest assured that I send all the postcards, albeit late, whenever I tell you that I did.
