I think probably Isa is the initiator of this postcard-sending activity. Wow, is just great to have postcard from all over the world. I do love to collect postcard. I used to collect them and stick them on the wall or cupboard. Kind of decorations(save money from painting them, haha, and use the money for travelling?? ;)).

One day when you are back from work and there is one postcard lying on the table for you... Warmth huh

So do you want a postcard from Malaysia?

There's a list? Am I on it? Put me on it! I've cleared off my fridge door (every time I opened it, some card or other would slip off and slide under the stove), so I'm ready to start anew.

WHAT?! You've taken away all our postcards!?

Get a stronger magnet!!!

No, no, no - they're being stored for safekeeping in the 'special' kitchen drawer. Along with every birthday card I've received in the last four years, some string, my grandmother's recipes, a couple of tie-tabs, and some 100 pens I've 'borrowed' from various employers.

Just a drawer?! That's not fire-proof you know. Don't you have a safe?

Ah! That reminds me of something. I've run out of pen. May I "borrow" a few from you? You have my address. Go ahead.

After Hien's recent experience - I recommend a safe deposit box for those post cards!!! The string - well, that's easily replaced!

Jit Shen - actually, I am and am not the originator of the post card exchange. I asked for one post card from Malaysia and Pardus made a thread out of it. But, it is one of the best threads around!!! Everyone is enjoying their post cards and it gives a "personal touch" to an otherwise distant relationship on TP. (That is - we know if you have good handwriting or not!)

I know my hand-writing is rather squibble. That's from my left hand... my right-handwriting would be totally different!

And what a delightful surprise from Gelli/Rich and my Nikki!!! Got yours at the 12 sharp (noon) exactly after my first class...

And besides Hien, do you know where to get some more 'unique' and niche' postcards? All of the main bookshops seems selling the same postcards...unless if I go to Malacca or Borneo...that's abundant of lovely postcards there and much cheaper! (or looking for perhaps those recyclable one as recommended from Brenden - made of kenaf in case, there are)

And there's no new stamps available! RM0.50 stamp for each postcard is only entitled to the picture of pineappple

Thanks Gelli and Nikki! I found Gelli's hand-writing is quite neat, simple and of a temperament of patience and Nikki is smooth and artistic.(She seems to be very 'extraordinarily' confident!) (the capital letter 'I' is rather beautiful)

Gelli writes a lot (10 lines with 59 words!)and on the contrary, Nikki...hehehe...just a simple analysis... don't get me wrong ya...

So do you want a postcard from Malaysia?

Oh thanks for that. I appreciate it. Perhaps some special postcards with little diamond sewed on it? For that one I think I need a safe

Hi Isa, thanks for info. Feel great to have this "exchange" program rolling. But before involving in this postcard thread, perhaps I have to practice my handwriting??!!??

Hi CKS, perhaps you can try in some restaurents like MacDonald. Some MacD outlets have a rack for postcards. There are rather different from those scenic postcard and it is FOC! But sad to say, you have to be "ontime". There are like hotcakes! Try your luck ;)

Tina, thanks a lot for your beautiful postcard with a colorful painting of a typical Montréal neighborhood on it. I really have to visit the city one day ;)!
