Thank You, Chubby Balloon!

Finally, I have received the postcard made by Chubby Balloon.

She keeps saying sorry for the delay of sending out the postcard. What I want to tell her is (I do not have her address, so I am going to write here):

“It’s ok. I like the postcard very much! And it’s worth all the waiting :-)”

I like her creative doodling too. She has fully utilized the space on the envelope.

It Must Have Been Short

Today (11 August 2013) is the last day of the long weekend in Singapore and Malaysia. Both countries celebrated Hari Raya Aidilfitri on 8 August. Malaysia continued the celebration on 9 August for Hari Raya Aidilfitri while Singapore celebrated its 48th National Day.

Some of my friends have gone for a short holiday; some just stay at home resting as they still need to work on 10 August (Saturday). No matter what is your choice of enjoying the holiday, I hope you have accomplished what you have planned.

For me, the long weekend feels like a short one. 8 August was a spring cleaning day, the kitchen and the toilets were cleaned and two electrical plugs were changed. In the afternoon, I went to an exhibition and bought some books and stationery.

I have been planning to go to Singapore Philatelic Museum for some time. Thus, I went there on 9 August. It is a small museum but I have learnt one important concept, that is, I am just a stamp collector, not a philatelist. A philatelist is a person who not only collects stamps, postcards and first day covers, he / she also studies and learns about them.

10 August was considered back to normal for me. There was a class in the morning and I went to Gardens by the Bay in the afternoon. As it was a long holiday, you could see many people visiting Gardens by the Bay. There were long queues everywhere! I was thinking of writing a post, but I was too tired from walking the whole day, well, almost the whole day.

11 August, I am publishing a post. There will be a class in the afternoon until evening. At night, I will be having dinner and preparing for next week.

The long holiday sounds really short, does it not? What have you done in the past three days? And what you will be doing today?
