I thought sending them to my friends would be cool and I would really love to do it. So I ran to my Facebook to ask friends to send me their postal addresses. And luckily, I had about 10 respondents.
Well, I grew up doing snail mails for my Dad and Mom and some friends and I find it so delightful, as well as, receiving their replies. It's been awhile since then and it is my first time to do it in a foreign country, here in Singapore.
I bought the lovely postcards from a shop in Sultan Mosque. From there, I asked how I can be able to send them in the Philippines, Malaysia, Korea and Japan. I was then directed to a bell man in a nearby hotel where I can just pay the guy and entrust my postcards to be posted the next day. It was holiday when I went there. Okay. I agreed and was told about a week (or depends on the postal service of the country you are sending) that my friends will be able to receive my postcards.
It's been two weeks and I thought of asking my friends if they have received my postcards, unfortunately, they haven't. I tried to ask the bell man about it but he told me he already posted it. I didn't argue anymore.
I just went back to buy another set of postcards and send them once again. I have learned that there is a SingPost, Singapore's domestic and international postal service, at Mustafa Mall near our place. So this time, I will personally do the posting.
I'm just so happy sending them and hopefully it gets to my friends successfully this time around.
