The first one features a very colorful Australian bird whilst the second one shows one of the amazing views you can find at the New England Wilderness National Park in New South Wales, also known as the New England National Park, or NENP, which was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage in 1986. Situated on the Northern Tablelands, it also forms part of the New England Group of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia.

Thank you Annie for sending these Aussies to me + for sending this lovely message! 😀

postcard: taal basilica in batangas

postcards, Batangas, Philippines, UNESCO World Heritage Sites

I fell in love with this postcard the first time I have laid eyes on it. In fact the last time I was in the bookstore  I bought a stack of these cards to giveaway to my swapmates. I have never been to Batangas to see the Tall Basilica but I would really love to see it one day.

Here are a few things you might want to know about the Taal Basilica:

  • it is also known as Basilica de San Martin de Tours
  • it is the largest church in the Philippines + the whole of Asia, too
  • St. Martin Of Tours who celebrates its fiesta every November 11 is its patron saint
  • its bell is also considered one of the largest bell in the country
  • its baroque design was conceptualized by architect Luciano Oliver
  • it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site

a leap day postcard from thailand

postcards, souvenirs

I recently participated in a little exchange in our Postcrossing Enthusiasts group for Leap Year postcards. We shall be sending the postcards to out friends on 29 February. A leap day sounds like a great day to send a postcard as it only happens only every 4 years, which makes the date so precious. Here is one of the beautiful cards I got in return for participating in the activity. It features the Khu Trung Tam Hoang Thanh Thang Long Ha Noi  or the central sector of the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long Ha Noi

Here’s more trivia about this site according to Wiki:

  • The Thang Long Citadel relic is the most important monuments in the system of Vietnam monument, associated with the historic capital city of Thang Long – Hanoi
  • The massive structures represent the rain of King building in various stages of history
  • In August 01, 2010 {Vietnam time}, this was recognized as a UNESCO Heritage Site by the World Heritage Committee

This is another lovely card from Cheerful + I simply love the little colorful details she added at the back, including the warm message she’s scribbled. Hey, did I tell you I just love her penmanship, too, + can only dream that I write just as good 🙂
