Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal

Tito Francisco (BORRACHA) of Portugal sent me this picture of one of the beaches of Albufeira. According to him, this beach has a unique feature - that it has water bubbles arising from the inside of sand. It is called "Beacheyes Water".

He also sent five stamps in the envelope. How nice is that!

First Yo Cards

For the very first time, I finally got to find a YO-CARD stand.. 
After church, my family and I went to eat at  Banapple in Il Terrazzo, Tomas Morato in Quezon City.

I also got a paper placemat.. too bad, it's now creased and wrinkled.


This one can be turned into a bookmark, as it has perforation in the middle.

Sarah's Letter

I have been thinking of Sarah's letter. Sarah is my penpal from Canada. I think this is her first letter for me in the year 2011. 

Sarah is the longest letter writer among my penpals. In this letter, she wrote 8 pages! How cool is that :]

Maverick Postcards are designed by Alan Fletcher. Still want 98 of them .. hehe

Animation Postcard from Taiwan

I got TW-258297, which was sent by applesweet of Taiwan. It travelled 1,146 km for 9 days.

This postcard used to be one of my favorites, but then I have thought that perhaps there is only one copy of that card so I un-favorited it.. I have lots of favorite cards sent by Apple :]

School Project Opportunity from Suzanne of The Netherlands

Suzanne1804 searched for 10 swappers for a school project in the PC Forum. She's a teacher who works with children who have dyslexia, and she wants them to practice their English. Aww..

Of course, I do not want to miss this opportunity, so I instantly sent a message to her. 

That is the postcard that I picked received (I picked from her album, and she also picked from mine).
This is the postcard that I am going to send.

I can't wait to reply to Tim!

Great stamps!

I wonder what these means:
Kijk en bestel op www.kinderpostzegels.nl (Probably the site where to buy such PC)

Met de opbrengst uit de verkoop van
kaarten en kinderpostzegels steunt de
Stichting Kinderpostzegels Nederland
projecten voor kinderen.

Thank you Suzanne and Tim for sending me another favorite : ]

Hermione Postcard

Penguin card.. bidding me a Happy Chinese New Year!

Winnie the Pooh 3-D Postcard

Those two stamps were some of the stamps that I was looking for. While on the left, it looks antique :]

Tito Carrick from the United States sent me this cool 3-D Postcard! It was in an envelope when I received it. What's cool about him is that he worked for Disneyland for almost 30 years! How great is that!
