A royal mail for the holiday


Warning: This is a post Christmas post. Not that I'm lazy but because I don't want to let the spirit of the season go. At least not yet. I'm still nostalgic with the food, decorations, gifts, the presence of family members and the comfort of home.

Rewind: on the second week of December, something came in the mail for me from the land of the kings and queens. At first I couldn't believe the fact though I'm already holding it on my hand. I'm way totally awed to received something from the place I long wanted to visit. It's a double intense feeling because I know it's not just a Christmas card,  there's little pieces of happiness inside. 

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves of how great this dear card is. Of course goosebumps and bliss to realize that snail mail is not yet gone. Thanks sis Kris for making my Christmas extra special. If you wanna experience the life in UK though you're not there, visit Kris' blog, Kalokang Buhay ng Isang Pinay sa UKay  and be struck with the cakes she bake, the Legoland and bits and pieces of their life in the UK.

my first card from UK - first - as though anticipating for more to come (hahaha)

lovely message full of love. 
Wouldn't your heart skip a beat to see the handwriting of a friend you've come to know while blogging?  
Now when I read Kris' blog, it's though I am seeing her handwriting legibly scribbled on the page.

as promised - sorry for the picture's poor quality

little happiness with the card - additional collections and a great idea for the wrapper. 
THUMBS UP!

Dear Kris: Thanks for the happiness, card,  greetings, wishes, the stamps 
and for the wonderful friendship that just crossed the boundaries of the blogging world.
I will be forever grateful.

    Ang sweet naman sis, I am so happy that you liked the card, my message and the stamps. And yes, snail mail is still very much alive. Nakita mo ba yung pic sa last post ko, some if those cards were posted to us & yes it is special =)
    Ako din sis, very thankful for the friendship. I really hope to meet you in person sa Pinas or dito someday.

    Much love, kris xoxo

  5. It's wonderful that you received mail from England. I've always felt that mail from another country was a special event.

  9. Awww... I got the same card from the same super sister Krizzy. When I finally got the card, I smelled it, held it on my chest, near my hear as if it can take where it came from. I guess it did, somehow.

    Cute stamps for your collection. I'm sure sobrang happy mo talaga.. love you twin sis.

  14. For some reasons I can't explain, I suddenly misses the good old days of reading letters. Days when the www was not yet existing. and the excitement of reading scribbled words never fails to excite me.

  17. someday we'll be there Jan. Yes, I am still a fan of snail mail and I miss receiving some.

  18. I think more dreamed of going to the land of the kings and queens and yes, sharing friendship outside blogging from people you met on the blogging world exceeds the feeling of happiness.
