snail mail love

i've said it before, i'll say it again...i love snail mails! i got some goodies from the mail last week and i was busy writing with my reply today. i actually enjoyed filling the envelope with some knick-knacks for my new friend in ohio, who i met through penpals & swappers flickr group i joined with last month. i am expecting more mails in the coming weeks, and what could be more exciting than that?! i love the surprises it holds, the pretty papers used, and the unique handwritings that just exclaim love and effort put together and sealed with much anticipation for my earnest reply.
i love putting together mail goodies

letters and postcards i got the last few weeks

i recently joined Postcrossing - the Postcard Crossing Project, and this is how it works:

What is Postcrossing?

It's a project that allows anyone to exchange postcards (paper ones, not electronic) from random places in the world.

How does it work?
1. register to get a login
2. obtain an address and a postcard ID
3. mail the postcard
4. wait to receive a postcard from another postcrosser
5. register the postcard ID of the card you have received
6. go to number 2 and start again!

so far, i had sent 4 postcards (read: the recipients already received and registered it online) and they even sent me emails to thank me! loveliness! total distance travelled by my sent postcards = 20,920 miles. to date, i have 5 travelling postcards across the globe, and i still have to receive the postcards sent for me.

so if you're one snail lover like me, head over to postcrossing and get your own dose of mail excitement! hehe

on another note, toni featured these custard-filled buns on her blog, served to her in a restaurant in hongkong, but forgot to ask the name of it. i was surprised to find it on the new magazine i bought:

while i enjoy crafting and making things, i am also keen on the enterprise side of it.
this special issue of Entrepreneur magazine is totally filling me in with wonderful ideas, as i had been toying for a long time now on the possibility of earning from home. on top of a dayjob that is. yes, i still long for a regular job, just so i can feel to be in my element again, but enterprising is a very good fall-back plan. you know, just in case. ;-)
