Keeping In Touch - Postcards

Dear Me,

Hopefully, I will be able to go out and visit the mail office next week. I have tons of postcards to mail and they are continuously piling up. Being a pregnant bum, I sure have a lot of time in my hands.

I started writing in the postcards last week of July and I was hoping then I could post it right away. Unfortunately, I got the flu bug and had to lie in bed for a few days. That sucked but I needed the rest.

The delay probably was a welcome since I still had to wait for some people I emailed - just to check if I had the correct mailing addresses. I just don't want to have my carefully chosen postcards, written and stamped, only to be mailed back to me because the recipients don't live there anymore.

It has been quite a while since I started doing this again. Despite the technology boom in communicating with people, nothing beats the joy of sending and receiving snail mail with a stamp on it. I, for one, would love to receive missives and postcards from anyone - no matter how simple the contents were. The joy comes from the thought that someone remember you and bother so much to send you one. The process of choosing a postcard or a stationery to write on, the words to scribble in it - sharing the littlest part of yourself to someone whether a friend, relative or even a stranger from the other part of the world, purchasing and choosing stamps and sticking it on, checking and re-reading it again and then mailing it -- is such a self-gratifying task I will love to do all over again.

What got me started again with this hobby was when I started joining It was such fun to receive and collect postcards from all over the world. Aside from that, I initiated contact from friends and bloodkins locally and overseas.

Adding to the list are
Gaby, a blogger friend who emailed me her addy a while ago and Khanh, whom I was chatting with this morning and was also my co-trainee in Tokyo back in 2003.

Within this month, I hope the following people will receive something from me in their mailboxes:

  • my brother Jeff in UAE
  • Aunt Letty in California
  • Jennifer from Austria (postcrossing)
  • Kristina from Germany (postcrossing)
  • Marju from Estonia (postcrossing)
  • Melissa from USA (postcrossing)
  • Pirjo from Finland (postcrossing)
  • Kristina from Germany (postcrossing)
  • blogger pal Gaby from Mexico
  • friend and Tokyo co-trainee Khanh from Vietnam

Hope you guys receive them! =)
