Midweek Mails: Postcards for 12-12-12

Now I can finally rest my right arm, take out the djarum from my husband’s stash and pretend to smoke it to celebrate the 20th postcard I finished writing tonight. Why the fuss? Well, writing postcards non-stop is NO joke! Also, tomorrow is December 12, 2012. That means 12-12-12, an auspicious date for some peope (especially to get married) and a once-in-a-lifetime event that most postcards and stamps collector are looking forward to.

So first thing in the morning tomorrow, this lot will be delivered, by yours truly, to the Post Office.

Hello, World! These postcards will be on their way to their destinations tomorrow.  I also have one packet going out to that nice lady in Poland.

I don’t know how much all these cost – and I dare not to think about it – but still I’m happy to be able to send them out. They’re for friends who have been really good to me, sending me postcards and stuff without being prompted to. Most of them don’t know they’ll be receiving a postcard with the unique “12-12-12” postmark so… ssshhhh. This is going to fun! 🙂 I just hope that the Post Office won’t mess things up! Even if it means that I queue for a long time at the PO I will do so just to get a nice, clear hand stamp.

I find it fun when it comes to choosing a postcard that would best fit the person I’m sending it to. Besides reading their profiles, I also put myself in the shoes of the receiver with the main thought in my mind: would I be excited to receive this postcard? Only then I’d pick the card if the answer is positive. I’m a chatty person so it is no surprise that I’ve got a lot written on the back of the postcard, hah!

If you’re from the Philippines, Japan, Singapore, the USA, Netherlands, Croatia, Italy, Poland, France, Isle of Man, Macedonia and Romania (gah, that was a long list!) and have been in constant communication with me, then one of these is yours. I wish I could send all of those who approached me for one but I am really sorry that I could not for budgetary reasons.
