Orphaned Postcard Project by PostMuse

Greetings everyone!

In 2013, I joined postmuse’s Orphaned Postcard Project in my personal quest of reigniting my love for snail mails. 🙂

Hence today I thought of sharing with you the links for the postcards I chose to ‘adopt’ for this project of hers. And maybe, just maybe, you might want to join her project too. Who knows, right?

Postcard 1 – Austria via U.A.E. with a Stop in Korea”

Postcard 2 – Tall Buildings Getting Taller

And yeah, you guessed it, I’m thinking of adopting a couple of postcards this year.

Thanks for reading.

Outgoing Wednesday II

Hello everybody! I just want to share some postcards I sent out today. I am still so behind in my correspondence but will try to catch up soonest.

So, here goes the three postcards I sent out for Postcrossing.

To Ruru in Taiwan… featuring several of the things one might see in the U.A.E. The upper three photos feature some traditional architecture of the country while the third row of photos show the men and women in their traditional dress.

10365To Katya in Russia… she loves cats so I am assuming she would like a postcard featuring animals especially camels. I find these creatures quite adorable. I haven’t had the chance to ride one yet but it is in my bucket list. Surely.

10366Finally, to Ellen in Germany… similar to my first postcard highlighting the cultures and sights in U.A.E.

10369Well, I hope everybody’s week is going just grand. Until the next post. Thanks for reading!

Outgoing Wednesday

A lovely day everyone! Just wanted to share with you some postcards I sent out today. 🙂 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.

10256

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. 🙂

kalliopiWell, that’s about it for today. Thanks for reading.

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.

A Homemade Fabric Postcard

I was out and about this morning ~ went to the bank, post office, and legal translation office for errands.  It is a very sunny day, but the heat was offset by the cool wind that made my walking to these offices bearable.  Although I do feel a headache starting.  Tsk tsk.

Anyhow, I got a wonderful surprise from my mailbox.  Included in Melanie’s (in Ontario) letter was a homemade fabric postcard.  It is my first time to receive such and I think I’m inlove with it.  LOL.  To immortalize my falling hard (excuse the pun), I’m sharing to you the postcard.  I hope you’ll like it as much as I did, dear readers.  🙂

Isn’t it great?  I feel like a little girl opening presents on her birthday.  Hehe.  Well, gotta go now.  Much, much things to do today.

Have a wonderful day to everyone!

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.
