This postcard is from a girl named Patricia. She is thirty-two years old and is living in Rotterdam. She said that there are many attractions in her place aside from this beautiful bridge.
This is a wonderful evening shot of the bridge. I can imagine that they have a band playing at one side of the bridge, something also like a small cafe where local bands play. Local bands sometime save on drum pad controller at musicians friend when they shop for drum and microphone needs. This kind of place is ideal for passersby to enjoy while looking up the starry sky or while enjoying a beer.

A 60th commemorative stamp for Boysen. A famous paint brand in the Philippines.
If you want quality paint, Boysen is the name.
I think they are cute stamps that is why I included them in the set of stamps I bought last September. I was hoping to find music-related stamps just like the excellent bass guitar at guitar center but there was none for the moment. I told the in-charge that if in the soon future they be able to make one, to please include me in their list. I really wished too I had so much money that time so I could just leave my bond deposit with them.
Thank you Francin. She’s a postcrossing swap buddy from UK. A nine-year girl, daughter of a schoolmate way back in highschool.
Thanks girl and holidays wishes to you too all the way from Iligan City City

Your resume has to be spectacular if you want to get a job or even a job interview these days. Luckily, certifications from Microsoft Certification Exams can go a long way toward making your resume shine. Take a closer look at how they manage this impressive feat.
Microsoft certifications are clear certifications. While education and experience may point toward what you can and cannot do, Microsoft certifications spell out your abilities in black and white. There is no guesswork for employers with these certifications, and you can bet that they like that a lot.
Beyond sending clear messages, Microsoft certifications are impressive. The tests are demanding and leave a lot of those who take them with only the options of giving up or trying again. Employers are impressed by those who work hard and succeed, and they see this in you when your resume contains Microsoft certifications.
It’s Better Than Not Having Them
Here’s a simple way that Microsoft Certification Exams and the certifications that come from their successful completion make your resume better than a lot of the others out there. Not everyone has them, so if you do, then you’re special. If you have ever wondered how good your resume has to be to have a good chance at being the one that stands out, then wonder no more. Yours just has to be better than everyone else’s. Or at least it has to rank among the top resumes so that yours will have a better chance of being the last resume standing.
Glad to have this. I thought I will never get one for real. =) Purchased it during my latest visit to the Manila Central Post Office.
Happy Valentine’s Day postage.
This stamp depicts the PhilPost mascot delivering love to you from all over the world. I love the theme. and I love Valentine’s day. It’s been awhile I have written a Valentine’s note to someone. It’s been awhile I have been in love with a person, but has never stopped loving music.
It’s been several years that I’ve gone dateless. Lol! But I can also remember that me and some friends went out on a date at a bar – just to listen to music because we know it’s gonna be a night of “love music”. We enjoyed that night because lots of musical presentation were done. Including hohner melodica at musicians friend, someone used that too. The oldies felt loved. lol! So even though there was no guy on Valentine’s day, I do have music to enjoy with. Though I know too that love and music would have been better. But I learn to be satisfied with what is there at the moment.
By the way, I got this valentine’s stamp at MCPO last September.
This is the last of the three FDCs I purchased when I went to MCPO last September with my daughter and friends. I really wonder what made Valentines 2013 so special why they had a Mahal Kita stamp made – thus making Valentines 2013 special.
Below is an excerpt I got from the PhPost bulletin (www.phlpost.gov.ph):
The Filipinos are really romantic and loving people. And no holiday brings out the romantic in us than Valentine’s Day. Nothing matters more than love on Valentine’s Day. And nothing conveys love to your sweetheart better than a well-composed romantic letter.
A beautiful love-letter has been known to win many hearts and seduce many souls. A powerful weapon in a lover’s arsenal, a love-letter is an indispensable part of Valentine’s Day celebrations.
The design for this year’s stamp is a stylized drawing of a couple holding hands, wearing traditional Filipino costumes who profess their love for each other. The man hands in a bouquet of flowers while the woman holds a love letter. Come what may, romance will never be lost to Pinoys. As long as there are people falling in love, love letters will always be written, cherished and enjoyed forever by the grateful recipient. These cards and letters sent through mail, are most of the time kept through the years for sentimental reasons.
So touching! Reminds me of the past. lol!
I love my kept love letters. I also love writing love letters. But I am sort of having a break in love relationship, so no love things to be written down in pages. Hahaii I wish I am back in the past times especially those times when I am so in love and looking forward to the next letter from my sweetheart.
An official FDC and stamps of Gerry De Leon commemorating his birth centenary last September 12, 2013. He is being awarded as a National Artist for Film.
According to Wiki:
Gerardo De Leon was a Filipino actor turned film director, who made his acting debut in the 1934 film Ang Dangal.
De León, who was born as Gerardo Ilagan, was a member of the Ilagan clan of Philippine motion pictures, which includes Robert Arevalo, Conrado Conde, Angel Esmeralda, Eddie Ilagan, Ronaldo Valdez, musical scorer Tito Arévalo, and his daughter Liberty Ilagan. De León was a medical doctor by profession, but his ultimate love for film has won him over. He made eight more films as an actor before he became a director. He made his directorial debut in 1939′s Bahay-Kubo, starring Fely Vallejo (who he later married). One of his unfinished projects was in the late Fernando Poe, Jr.’sJuan de la Cruz in 1972.
Nicknamed “Manong”, de León holds the sole distinction of being the most awarded film director in the history of the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences’ FAMAS Awards, the Philippines’ Oscars. From 1952 to 1971, he was awarded seven FAMAS Awards, three of them he received three years in a row. His 1961 film The Moises Padilla Story was selected as the Philippine entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 32nd Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.
I got this during my trip to Manila last December. Purchased it from Manila Central Post Office. Me and the daughter went there with Sis Willa, one of my postcrossing buddy.
I have to many stuff to be shared through this blog, but I just really failed to do so because of time constraints. But I am starting. hehehe
Note to self: please give your Postcrossing blog some time – even a little.
October is almost over as we are already a bit beyond the middle days. Right? So that means November will come next and with so many works and appointments, before you will realize it, it’s gonna be Christmas.
I plan to put up our Christmas tree this year. Since we have a toddler at home, we didn’t put up our tree for the past years. But this year, we sure gonna have it since the little is now in school and can now understand why he should not play with the lights. I still haven’t decided what would be the theme color of our tree decors but surely I am going to buy some white wire christmas lights. Ordering online would take time so I’ll try to check this out in the nearest home world outlet.
Here’s one of my favorite Christmas themed cards. I got received this from Marius of Bucovina, Romania.
I purchased these two cards and more when I was in Puerto Princessa last week. The daughter asked why I bought them since we aren’t going to Coron that time. I told her that I am buying it for my collection as well as it is going to inspire me to keep on wishing – to go to Coron maybe after I am done with my schooling.
Together with these two are also cards that will show where we’ve been during our travel last week. I’ll be sharing it in another post.
One thing though that I do not like with these cards is the price sticker at the back.
If I have to peel that out, it will surely leave a messy mark on the card, so I will just leave it at that. Since I won’t be sending this away for swap, so it is just okey.
