Aside from writing and blogging, manual sewing, listening music, dancing, swimming, and biking, I have my new hobby now. I got a good influenced by my teacher Jackie and my two classmates which are from Thailand and China of my conversation class every Friday. At first when they talked about it and wanted to exchange stamps from my country home which is Philippines, I just said okey and the next week we met we exchanged. I was not that really fun of, I am just happy when people are happy and as long as I have it then why not, right? So then, the next session our teacher said that she will bring her collection of stamps and she did it, we saw her collections last Friday and I got fascinated how she had! A lot! there are commemorative stamps around the world but mostly made here in USA but the thing is it's so awesome how she managed to have it, it's not used stamps it's new and it is ready to use everytime she wants to use but she won't permit herself to use it for ordinary use. So there, it's some kind like of photo albums form smallest to largest and mostly are blocks of stamps. There are international famous persons, things, and events which is called "commemorative" meaning "in memory". I bet you she has lots I guess 10 albums, and also there are rare ones which of great value! She said she began to collecting stamps the time she had her baby, and now her son is already married and I bet the age is 30+ already and now her son is the one continuing to collect stamps for her. And so, I got fascinated with it that it's then sensible to me. After that school hours I dropped-by then at the USPS and buy commemorative blocks of stamps. The older the better and good if it's first class 'coz if you want to use it, the value is equivalent to the current value. But am not after of the value, what am after of is the essence and importance of it. I will then find stamps which dated the the year that I got birth and to the present. I guess it would be rare and expensive, I just try if I can have a good deal. If not, then I would love to collect the year that I got here in USA, and that would be the commemorative of my stamp collecting. The other one which I got fascinated that turned me to hobby is the post card collecting. Just like the first one, it would be then international thing. And I would love to exchange to peepz and friends who came from different countries. I guess it's just easy for me 'coz I have lots of classmates who are from different countries like China, Hongkong, Korea, Thailand, Mexico, Japan, India, Germany, Vietnam, France, Cambodia, Singapore, and more. I am only the one came from Philippines, sometimes they teach me their language which I like much so I can be multilingual. heheheh. Is that cool folks? Well then how about you, can you share your hobby to me too? Do you like commemorative stamps and post card collection?

    my aunt used to collect stamps too and thought it was great. but since we hardly use the postal system now i don't see the point of it anymore.

    HI Emz, ohhh yeahh that's the point Emz because we hardly use the postal system now anymore the more it will become rare in the future. My point is that it serves as the commemorative meaning "in memory of the events" of the famous and important people, things, and stuff of the country. And not that expensive to buy that will soon become a rare for the following years to come because year or time will not be the same anymore. Anyway, we have different perceptions and I stick to what is what I thought. heheheh.. You have also an idea then. Thanks for being here Emz. You're welcome to my site! muahhugs. And to Umeko, Chubskulit or Rose, and to Gagay thanks a lot for joining the discussion comment section. God bless you more!
