2015-09 Favorite Postcards Received

The structure of Chi Mei Museum is in white color and so beautiful. It is a comprehensive museum with wide collections of Western art, musical instruments, weaponry and natural history.


In 14th – 19th August, it has World Stamp Exhibition in Singapore. I received this postcard with its stamp mark. This postcard is 1914 1st Beijing Print Junk, Inverted Center Error, $2 postcard.


This was my first time to receive “Greeting From” postcard. It has introduction about country such as population, capital, famous people and many more.


When I received the postcard, I was smile because阿柏医师 (Taiwan doctor) was so special. This was my first time to see someone write message on the front of postcard instead of the back of postcard.


Through the postcard, I can saw that the structures of buildings in Stockholm are very beautiful.

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and the most populous city in the Nordic region. It is the cultural, media, political and economic center of Sweden- Wikipedia


This postcard is so cute with the hand drawing of Chang’e (Chinese goddess of the moon) eat moon cake. Talking about Chang’e, we will think of Mid-Autumn Moon Festival. The tales as below:-

In a very distant past, 10 suns had risen together to the heavens, thus causing hardship for the people. The archer Yi shot down 9 of them and was given the elixir of immortality as a reward, but he did not consume it as he did not want to gain immortality without his beloved wife Chang’e. However, while Yi went out hunting, Fengmeng broke into his house and forced Chang’e to give up the elixir of immortality to him, but she refused to do so Instead, Chang’e drank it and flew upwards towards the heavens, choosing the moon as residence to be nearby her beloved husband. Yi discovered what had transpired and felt sad so he displayed the fruits and cakes that his wife Chang’e had liked, and have sacrifices to her- Wikipedia


This was my first time to hear of “St-Petersburg” so I online search to learn more.

Saint Petersburg is the 2nd largest city in Russia, politically incorporated as a federal subject. It is located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea- Wikipedia

  3. This is so interesting and you love collecting postcards.
    Thanks for visiting my blog and I am following yours now.
    If you don't mind, you can email me your mailing address and I will include you in my bloggers' address lists when I go overseas. I would always try to send out postcards to a number of them.
    My recent trip to Manila gave me a shock as all my postcards never arrived in Malaysia. I suspect I got conned by the clerk at the postal booths inside the Greenbelt. So sad.
    Another day I posted few cards from another postal booth but they reached just 3 persons.
