Japan | Sent with Love

Shouting out lot of love to sister Clarissa (Clang) in Iwaki, Fukushima! This card is one of the cards that I picked at the post office today. It shows a scenic view of the mountainous area of Tohoku REgion, Yamagata Prefecture.

She came here last summer to to support her daughter and her daughter’s choral buddies in a competition. I will ask her later if the place will be like a winter wonderland even during the summer.

And the stamps? They are all so cute especially the one with flowers. 🙂

Again, thank you so much, Sis Clang! <3

Postcrossing Stats

As a Postcrossing member and postcard lover, I really do not mind my stats.  I just sent out because I love doing it and the happiness I felt when I received a card is priceless.  But today, please allow me to share my stats.  This is as of Dec. 28, 2015:



I wish I have sent more. But at least I can say this one’s is better compared to the year before.

It’s just a couple of days before the 2015 ends, so I could no longer mail more even though how much I wanted it.  But I promise myself that, mailing postcards will be one of the big things I will do when 2016 starts.

I also need another day to sort out and file all the cards I this year.  Laters yeah!

Holiday Shopping!

The holiday season is soon to end and I am not so happy because I have not yet shopped for cards.  I just love sending postcards to my regular swaps as well as to random strangers.  I’ve been to NBS last week, and unfortunately, their cards are out of stock.  I felt sad for companies not realizing that cards are as important as musical instruments.

The daughter wanted to go store hopping for musical instruments because she thinks that that the price is lower during the holiday season since many are out shopping. Well, I then saw this low price commitment online so I easily agreed with her.  Since we are leaving for Cebu tonight, I hope we will have time to go around tomorrow or before the trip back to Mindanao.

Below are some of the cards I received last month.  I think they are of superb view and that husky oh it’s love!

There are only a few more days before the 2015 ends.  Let me take this opportunity to thanks each of my Postcrossing friends and even random Postcrossing members for making my Postcrossing 2015 experience a wonderful and exciting one!

May 2016 brings in more card love to all of us!
