Postcardloverph.com

Today, I decided to buy a custom domain postcardloverph.com and start a brand new postcard blog. Sad to say i was not able to renew my postcardlover.com domain and now someone owns it. I feel bad, YES. But im the kind of person who dont dwell too much on something that will just make me feel bad. I just thought that something better will come, out of that. So yeah, i think this is a good kick off for the coming 2016 (so early I know :) ) and I'll be more visible online for the coming days especially here. My shengkay.com is also live now and hopefully will be updated regularly.

So welcome to myself again to online world.

Back to my Old Self! Back to Postcrossing

I don't actually remember the last time I blog about my postcard and also Its been a year or two that I join postcrossing. But now I am so back! Last 2 weeks ago (last week of October) I decided to activate my postcrossing account and sent 10 postcard to random people. Most of my recipient is from Russia, I really believe Russia is one of the country that rich in culture (if money is not an issue, Russia is one of the country that I wanted to visit, also places in Europe like Paris and many other European country.

image not mine

So here I am again! Its never too late to start over again! :)
