I love getting cards

Back in school, we’d always exchange cards when hari raya was approaching. Inside the card, there would usually be little messages of invitation and friendship.

Reading them would always bring about a good feeling about the moments and experiences that were shared.

Such beautiful handwriting

I enjoy receiving these cards. And I keep each and every one of them. There are some in my pile which are about 10 years old even.

Not too sure if the kids in school now even exchange cards anymore.

I know that there are sites like e-cards and ‘friendster’ where you could send your messages. But I feel that it’s still nice to have a physical item in your hands that you can hold and read without having the need to switch on a computer.

Some of my cards are already yellowing with age already. But it just gives them more character.

And I was hypothesizing, since this humble bloggariffic is read all over the world, would you like a card? I think its would be fun. Just email me your mailing address 🙂
