It took so many months before the Philippine Post Office re-open a branch here in Panglao. But I’m glad they did before I gave birth because I was able to claim my SSS Maternity Benefit cheque faster than I expected. Same with the package sent to me by my friend in Manila, I was also able to claim it faster than I thought. But since the municipality has no mailman for several months, the file of the mails to be delivered is quite high. So when the mails sent by the different missionaries, both foreign and local, to our church were finally delivered, they were already thick.
I scanned the envelopes of the mail to check if there is any urgent mail for our pastor. As I scanned I admire the different post stamps used in the letter envelopes. I started recollecting my memory of my post stamps collection when I was in high school. And the urge to start collecting stamps again is a bit strong.
I was fond of collecting small things when I was younger just like the stamps. Aside from the stamps, I also have a collections of bookmarks, stationary, key chains, currencies and coins before. I even bought the old currencies I found in my father’s wallet but not for too much because I don’t have the money. And I would probably do the same for a military challenge coin if ever I found one before. But sad to say, I could no longer locate where are collections now. I probably lost them in one of our house-transfer.
I am thinking of collecting post cards in preparation for my daughter’s social studies subject. But come to think of it, stamps are less expensive, right? So d0 you think I start should start collecting stamps again?
