I’m still here, alive and kicking!
As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, changes were to happen this year. First, we acquired a lease for another apartment somewhere southeast of the city, close to the banks of the Mekong. We didn’t actually move there to live but we planned it as a – sort of – weekend rest-house.
Second, I got a new job and a full-time one. It’s something that I want to do for a long time to keep me from moping around the house. My skills are put to use again and I feel productive and useful to society. Besides, I could use extra moolah for shopping since my nephews and nieces have been hinting for some cool halloween party stuff for they saw while browsing at dept 56 halloween. But I don’t think their Grandma (my mum) is too happy about them asking me frequently, hihihi. But most importantly, I now have some moolah to continue collecting and swapping postcards with you again! Win-win, isn’t it?
Speaking of swaps, I decided to accept some offers but to selected ones. This week, I’m sending these to the Netherlands in exchange for San Marino and Vatican City postcards:
The swapper is going for a holiday in these places – and I could not really resist initiating the swap – as I have no postcards from San Marino yet (I have only one from the Vatican City).
