Postcard Weekly 05-03-2013 (featuring Nepal)

These are half of the postcards I got for myself when I visited Nepal. Postcards in Nepal are really cheap, NPR10 (~PhP5 or USD0.11) each! Plus, you can find them everywhere in Thamel.

This one is something I got for free at the airport.

This is a view of Nagarkot during the winter. Amazing.

I dare not leave Nepal without a postcard of Mt. Everest.

Manjushree: the creator of Kathmandu Valley
Bhavachakra Mandala

Lumbini, the birth place of Buddha

Postcard Weekly 05-03-2013 (featuring Kuala Lumpur)

Here are the postcards that I got from Kuala Lumpur during a layover. I got them from a shop at the airport right before boarding the plane bound for Kathmandu haha. Lucky!

This is a mosque in Putrajaya Malaysia, we passed by this place while riding a cab from KLIA to LCCT (the two airports in KL).

And of course, a postcard of the Petronas Towers was a must.

Paper Stars

I think this is what happens when you constantly have a sketchpad, pens and paper stars lying around your desk and then you suddenly get a random urge to write something down.

...what happens when you're listening to One Republic.

"No more counting dollars / We'll be counting stars"

...what happens when you're watching Frozen or listening to its soundtrack. (Yes, I know I'm late!)

"Only an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart."

...what happens when you're having castella and coffee for breakfast at your desk while checking the roses you're hanging upside down to dry and preserve-- basically just mulling over the nice things in life despite all the stress.

I should make postcards like these!

Postcard Weekly 04-26-2013

I can't believe it's been almost a year since my last Postcard Weekly post! I've neglected it and I pretty much have an idea why I did-- new job, travels, getting into an accident, moving to another house and moving back. I guess I just got too preoccupied and forgot. However, today I'm catching up with the Postcard Weekly series! I think I've almost over 200 postcards worth of backlog.

An art postcard from Finland. The biggest I've got so far. It's like twice the size of a typical postcard.

A Brave postcard from Hong Kong. Aww Merida!

A recipe postcard from Russia

Something from France

Finally, a postcard that shows an island in northern Germany
