30 Days, 30 Movies

First 10 movies. I got this idea of doing something for 30 days from a TED Talk by Matt Cutts. I knew that if I want to get back into the habit of appreciating movies, I have to set aside some time for it. 30 days did not sound like an awful lot of time…

  Above: Outgoing cards I’m gonna go on a brief rant here. I posted this on a Facebook group. Whenever I offer to swap, I try to be as proactive as possible. I provide my album link and I give as much information as possible. One of the things that irk me is when I…

I just found out I don’t like postcard books. Above (L-R): The Cutest Sneeze In The World, Tokidoki, Magnum Magnum, Another Day In Paradise From these 4 collections, I can honestly say that only Another Day In Paradise is the only one where ALL cards are worth sending out. Although, postcard books make per unit…

The Best Of February

Here’s this month’s playlist of my favourites. Favourite song: Short of Breath by Fake Laugh One day I kept singing the chorus over and over until I realised I was singing “short of BREAD” instead of “breath.” Which reminds me… it’s time to go grocery shopping. Album worth mentioning: Talkie Walkie by Air Get all…

Today is technically Saturday but, what the heck, it’s only been 18 minutes since. 🙂 Reading week was pretty productive on the sending front because no classes and I have been trying to balance out my postcard collection.

Reading week just started for me! So, I will have more time to craft my postcards. Yay-ya! I’ve started sharing my hobby to a few of my friends and the response has always been “oh, that’s cute!” The best reaction is “I think I will try this.” Don’t think about it, just try it. I…

This week has been quite a hectic week for me. So, my outgoing is half the amount than usual. But, as promised, we’re talking about what to do on the writing side of the postcard. Some people write about their day, like I usually do. I talk about the last movie I watched and what…

These are my favourite stamps so far. I understand now why people collect these things. Sometimes, while doing direct swaps especially on Facebook, some people would request for special stamps like the Chinese Year of the Dog ones. Those have become especially in demand lately. If some people must have it, they often say it…

The Best Of January

It’s the end of the month and, as promised, I have a playlist for you. I will make this a regular month-end thing. The songs are all personal favourites of the month. Songs may be old or new, but they’re all stuck in my head. I tried to arrange them with the best flow possible….

I received quite a lot of cards this week. My Postcrossing stats are starting to balance out now. Left: From Singapore, Right: From Germany I’m beginning to appreciate castles and palaces because of postcrossers from Europe. Them Europeans know how to build beautiful things. This one is my favourite from Vienna, the Schönbrunn Palace: And…
