Blogger Postcards Around the World #2


It's that time of the year again..flowers and candy and cakes and cards.. all heart shaped and gooey!It's almost Valentines Day! So what is everybody planning for this one day? Is it a surprise or can you share with me?

Meeta is once again hosting the Blogger Postcards Around the World event and this time the theme is Happy Valentine’s.
I entered the event with a lot of enthusiasm as I had missed the last event and I was always a lover of the snail mail. Now email has just taken over our lives but still there is nothing better than the anticipation of a handwritten card or letter from a friend or family member.

I initially thought it HAD to be a postcard and imagine my surprise when I couldn't get hold of a postcard! I searched the postoffice, 3-4 bookstores and a couple of supermarkets. It started sounding silly when I asked people where can I get a postcard and explained why. I got some really strange looks(cuckoo, cuckoo)! Finally I gave up and opted for a card instead. I guess postcards are available only at tourist spots!

I chose a snoopy card as the cute smile and the crinkly paper just warmed my heart over. While not one to openly express emotions easily, this simple cheerful card is more my style. Hope the card reaches before the special day! My card is going all the way around the world to a mate in a cool continent. Can you guess where?

Exactly the same predicament I was in..!! I din't know where to buy a postcard, and since I cudn't get one by the deadline I opted out of it !! Made a resolution to collect postcards the next time I go someplace !! :-( Din't strike me I could get a card instead !! Duhhhhh :-(

You just have to say mate and hey its going to Oz land! Imagine last BPW, i had to hunt for one week to get a postcard, u get only at tourist spots here too. So this time whenever I was on a trip, i picked up some cards ! So you are not alone in this one. ANd here people gave me stranger looks than that, if you read my earlier BPW post, you'll understand :)
Cute lil snoopy Shaheen!
