Outgoing Wednesday

A lovely day everyone! Just wanted to share with you some postcards I sent out today. ūüôā Hope the recipients will love what I chose to send them.

To Savannah in USA.. the biggest mosque in the U.A.E. (if I’m not mistaken). I saw it in the daytime but it sure looks majestic in twilight.

To Rainer in Germany… my favorite color of the desert sand.

To my wonderful penpal, Usi in Germany… how I wish to sit on a camel someday. I have seen it up close and personal but to travel by it. Nah.

usiLast but not the least, to another awesome penpal, Kalliopi in Greece… another type of water transportation used to cross the Dubai Creek. If you’re seasick, well, I don’t advise you to ride on one of these as you can really feel the flow of the water. ūüôā

Lost and Found Mails

I haven’t had much outgoing mails to send the past several weeks so I refrain from visiting my P.O. box. ¬†Today, however, I had to file for an exam and the office I went to was right next door the post office. Long story short, I checked my mailbox and¬†voila! I got several letters waiting for me to claim them. Look!

And the most amazing thing about these letters was that I thought them forever lost from all the holiday rush traffic. I am so happy to finally receive them. Tomorrow is soon enough for me to start my replies (and apologies).

Have a great week, everyone! Thank you for reading.

From U.A.E. with Love

Outgoing mail for this week consists of…

Postcards!

This card features the Burj Al Arab (tallest hotel in the world) at dusk and it is on its way to Emma in the U.K. for Swap-Bot’s Little Things…PC Swap #9.

Out1

This next postcard shows multi-views of places in the emirate of Sharjah (1-Khaled Lake, 2-American University in Sharjah, 3-Kasba Channel). ¬†And is journeying to Sarah in New York for Swap-Bot’s Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow PC Swap #5.

I hope everyone likes the cards I chose to send them. ^_^

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.
