Outgoing Mail Update

It seemed that for the last week or so, my body was willing but my spirit was not.  Sadly, worrying too much makes it so.  However, yesterday some bit of good news came on the ‘war’ in my hometown so I was able to get several essays cooking but will upload it one at a time.  First place comes by way of me updating on the outgoing mails I was able to post on Friday. 🙂

To Sara in Asturias, Spain for Swap-Bot’s Blind Surprise Swap (September).  I hope she likes all the surprises I wrapped especially for her. 🙂



These postcards en route to the U.S. and Malaysia for Swap-Bot’s 52 Postcards in 2013.  The PC above is one of the rare PCs of my emirate (Fujairah).  And the PC below shows one of Kish Island’s view in the Persian Gulf.



I still have quite a few letters to seal and send.  Here’s hoping I can update again soonest.

Thanks for dropping by, dear readers.  I hope you’re having a great weekend.


Signed, Sealed and on Its Way

This week’s outgoing mail consisted of:


Fujairah-20130625-00660This is a resend to Hilary in Alberta, Canada for Swap-Bot’s Paper Goods swap  back in April as she didn’t get the first one I sent her.  I wonder which postal service is to blame???

Fujairah-20130626-00667  I joined another package swap re: Swap-Bot’s Blind Surprise swap. This one is on its way to Philippa in Australia. Hope she gets it fast and it won’t get lost. Fingers crossed.

And Postcards!

Out6The card above shows sketches of how the New Souk in Sharjah looks like as well as the Waterfront view near it.  This card is on its way to Karolina in Poland, for a direct swap.

Out7This next card shows the Dubai Metro train which most people use to commute once they are in Dubai.  It is on its way to Sanna in Finland for Swap-Bot’s A Postcard from Your Town #7 swap.

Out8And for the last journeying postcard of the week is from the Philippines featuring the famed Pagsanjan Falls.  I chose this to send to Alya, an avid postcrosser.

Happy mailbox to everyone!

Sorting Out my Pile of Correspondence

Whoa! No entries since more than a month ago. Gotta make up for it. So, here goes…

I devoted this week and still devoting this week until the weekend to sorting out all of my correspondence.  I checked and rechecked all the mails I have not answered; swaps I have not rated; and postcards I have not registered.  Luckily, I am 80% done.  All I need to do now is write my letters to my penpals and by next week I shall have a clean slate. Fingers crossed.  Unfortunately, I was not able to have photos taken of my first two batches of outgoing mails this week.  I really have to improve on my documentation skills, eh?  Hehehe.

Anyway, last night I was able to finish (again) some more outgoing mails.  These three letters will be on their way today to Turkey, Croatia and the Czech Republic.  Hope it won’t get lost as I am experiencing some of my mails not reaching their destinations.


Additionally, I’ve prepared some postcards to go out with the above outgoing letters as well.  This one is for a swap in Swap-Bot (52 Postcards in 2013).  It shows an aerial view of the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.  Hopefully, it should reach Canada in a forthnight.

And last but not the least, a postcard for a direct swap in Colorado, U.S.A.  This card depicts the interaction between man and camel in the heart of the desert.
