postcrossing: el nido, palawan

I did tell you I managed to buy some postcards a few weeks back + this is one of the lovely ones I managed to score. It is a beautiful photo of the enthralling El Nido in Palawan. I wish to go there someday. I find those rock formations simply fascinating.

According to, El Nido is a town + a marine reserve park found at the northen-most part of the island of Palawan + is 420 kilometers away from the South-West of Manila. It boasts of 250 million year-old limestone cliffs much like the one depicted in the postcard.

Simply beautiful, right?

Now, since it is the 1st day of my birthday month + I am feeling rather generous today, I’d love to share this postcard with you! I shall be giving away 10 pieces of this postcard to the first 10 commenters on this post. Simply leave a relevant comment then leave your mailing details through my contact form + viola! I shall be mailing the postcards as soon as I’ve completed the 10.

I will be waiting for comments, see yah! 😉

postcard perfect 03: pennsylvania – the keystone state

Here’s another one of the first postcards I received when I was just starting with my postcrossing hobby. This one is from a personal swap with fellow PMC member, sis Mel.  This is a photo of the State where she lives, Pennsylvania (PA), which is also popularly known as the Keystone State.

Here’s what the postcard says:

Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” founded in 1681, one of the original 13 colonies, has had a prominent place in American history. With beautiful scenery + excellent facilities four outdoor recreation, visitors + sportsmen are attracted year round.

Liberty Bell, located in Philadelphia, is one of the famous landmarks found in Pennsylvania. If I get lucky, I want to visit this place one day.

Thanks sis Mel for this beautiful card. By the way, it cam with this cool stamp:

Share your postcard perfect, too!

pink fridays: pink mother's day card

Last Mother’s Day, our online mum community, PMC, had this little card-exchange project + you know how I love sending + receiving cards that’s why I immediately joined!

Here is this lovely pink card I got from Mommy Fe. She even printed this photo of me + Jared (which is one of my many favorites) + pasted it on the card. Don’t you always feel good when you receive a card? The thought that someone went out of their way to choose which card they think you’d like best + writing little thoughtful messages in there. I just love it!

This card by the way, is one of the cards I’ve picked from when I bought the one I’d be sending for my secret mummy, so you can only imagine my surprise when I got one for myself, thanks Mommy Fe!

Sharing this pink card through Pink Friday 😉
