Yesterday was a very productive (postcrossing-wise) and eventful day for me. Been meaning to go out to the post office the past few days but certain circumstances didn’t let me. Finally, yesterday I was able to go out to the post office and the mall. I was hoping the weather would cooperate but it didn’t… it was scorching hot outside!
Anyways, like what I said, I went to the post office and the mall. To the post office first to drop off some postcards. Here are a few of them:
I also inquired about the “air mail” option. Unfortunately, the P13 that I pay for the stamps or the metered stamp is already it. Sigh.
I also bought stamps. I do not collect stamps (not yet) but I want variety for the postcards I send out. I almost weren’t able to buy some because the lady at the post office was having doubts on whether or not she sold me some stamps before. She had to ask me twice before letting me in her office. Also, she did not show me all the stamps. The last I went there, she showed me two sets of stamps but this time she showed me just one. She told me those are the only stamps she has since the central post office still hasn’t sent her the new ones. Good thing the ones I was looking for were still available. Next time, I’ll go straight to the central post office and buy there.
After the post office, I headed to the mall. There was a vehicular accident right in front of the city hall and people were starting to gather around to see what happened. It involved a motorcycle and a jeepney (or a car? I’m not sure anymore.) I saw a bloody man on the road and the police were trying to help him up and walk. I couldn’t look no more so I headed to the jeepney stop. The traffic was heavy on the way to the mall. It was barely moving so I decided to just walk the last mile. What’s causing the traffic was another vehicular accident this time involving two cars and two jeepneys. They were blocking the whole road, hence, the heavy traffic.
My trip to the mall was good despite the two accidents I witnessed. Why? I was able to
hoard buy postcards! I now make it a habit to buy 2-5 pieces of each kind so I’ll have stocks. Wanna see?
I also bought a couple more of the A5-sized clear book that I use to keep my postcards. I’ll show you a picture next time.
