First UNESCO Card Received for 2011: Historic City of Toledo, Spain

 This is another lottery that I have won last Christmas season. Thank you geminiscp for hosting the lottery.
Featuring the Historic City of Toledo of Spain. 

North Korea Flag PC

This postcard was bought in North Korea, but was mailed from China. The swapper tried mailing postcards from the North, but most of her postcards didn't arrive. So, what she did, she just mailed the remaining from China. Well, isn't that Flag PC awesome?!

Still waiting for 2 postcards from her.

The Very First Mail that I received for 2011

Referring to this link (Third Post)
I have mentioned there that the first mail I received was from CBN Asia. 

Oh yes, that's true. What really surprised me was that I received it on a Sunday - January 2, 2011. I was thinking that it was really something to receive mail on a Sunday. It was my first time. And another is that, people were still thinking of their hangovers of their vacation.

LOL.. I scanned the whole newsletter. Just felt like doing it. I shouldn't threw the plastic off.. it has my name on it. d(-_^)good!!

Speaking of that, I haven't gave my monthly pledge for the month. Oh me.. when will you remember that?

Thanks to carolien2010 for hosting the Lucky Winner Lottery! I was so blessed to win this card.

Wednesday Postcard

Artificial lens implant surgery pioneered by Sir Harold Ridley, 1943 

Got Reunited with a Long Lost Penpal! Part II (pictures)

 Here are Hyein's letter.. where she also gave three bags of tea, her ID picture, 2 hello kitty lollipops (I ate the blue one today), and a nice ponytail. : ]

 Out of the blue, I also like to put here other pictures..

 We opened this big box from my Aunt.. and wasn't expecting that it contains food inside. 
A Cake.

 I just thought of taking a picture of this lollipop because of its shape.. Chupa Chups. Sorry for the quality though.

        TOP VIEW       

 Arggh.. I can't still get over with this tubby. It has raisins inside, and has this unique aroma.
I don't know if I like it or not. Both.

Random Envie Swap #1

Okay, so this one isn't mine. I saw it in the camera.. 
it belongs to my mother. I told her to take pictures of the stuff that she will send. And here they are:

4 skeins of embroidery thread, an FB and SB, a couple of stickers, 3 big bookmarks,
a 2011 planner, an owl postcard, some memo sheets, gift tags, a letter, and a slipper keychain from my trip to Baguio.

I hope her partner will like everything. Most of the items here are recycled.

Some pictures sent to my penpals

This one goes to South Korea.

These pictures were taken last year.. I think around November - December. Sorry for the quality.

Got this Algarve postcard from a Private Swap with BORRACHA! This postcard shows a typical chimney 

of a house in Algarve. I wonder what does it feel like to have a chimney.

 Haha! *hugs*

Did you see the crease? I think the postman made that.. probably struggling on pushing the postcard on our 

mailbox. Hayzz.. Oh well, I need to be more understanding. He's already old.

Here's the stamp:

It travelled for 29 days..

First 3-D Postcard

This postcard 

really has made me


I was so

amazed and thrilled when I got this 

postcard from a Postcrosser from Russia!

Thank you very much shrilanka for this postcard!

It's one of the mail that made my day.

RU-274696 travelled 8,260 km in 51 days.

I have learned the Saint Basil's Cathedral, when my World History teacher, Prof. Corazon Tahil, showed us a picture of it from a cut-out. 

Also known as The Pokrovskiy Cathedral, this church is found in Moscow, Russia.

First Periodical Received for 2011

Since I study Advertising, the Front Cover always gives me ideas.. and helps me in my studies. Just want to show you what it looks like.

This is a FREE magazine. I don't know how my mother did it. She visited South Korea a few years back, and got one of this.
