pf: pink birthday postcards

I’ve mentioned on several occasions about my new found passion of collecting postcards.  I’ve joined this postcrossing site where you can swap with other postcard enthusiasts from anywhere in the world. I’m also a member of our little group in Facebook {which was put up by our very own Mommy Ruby + Mommy Willa}, the Postcrossing Enthusiasts group, where I get to keep in touch with people of like minds. We have members from other parts of the globe, too, like the Netherlands + Morocco.

As part of our swapping schemes, we are to send every birthday celebrant a birthday postcard {of course, it is not mandatory, but a lot of members have been sending birthday postcards since we’ve put our birthdays there!}. I’ve only sent a couple of these + plan to send one to each of the celebrants this September, just so I can put on a smile on their faces on their big days :)

Some members have sent me birthday postcards the past weeks + they totally put a big smile on my face when I received them. I am most touched by the sweet gesture + when I got these lovely pink Hello Kitty postcards from Mommy Clang, I just bawled over! They are the cutest, + bless her for being very thoughtful, she even sent me two of them!

Look how pretty my birthday postcards are:

They even came with these equally cute stamps:

Now, I’m wanting to go to Japan just so I can hoard on these kawaii cards :P

postcard perfect: cape cod, massachusetts

 My Postcard Perfect share for this week is this lovely island of Cape Cod (which is locally known as The Cape), which is the easternmost portion of the state of Massachusetts.

According to Wikipedia:

Cape Cod was formed as the terminal moraine of a glacier, resulting in a peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean. In 1914, the Cape Cod Canal was cut through the base of the peninsula, forming what may be loosely described as an island. The Cape Cod Commission refers to the resultant landmass as an island.

Cape Cod is also often mentioned in Nicholas Spark’s novels.

This beautiful postcard is sent to me by Stephanie through a personal swap. By the way, if you want to swap with me, please leave your details + preference through my contact form. I’d be delighted to swap with you. :)

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 Wikipedia.org, 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! ;)
