Stamp Collecting – My Hobby Again!
Philippine Stamp PANAPEX Manila
I thought that I’ve quit stamp collecting but I realized that once a stamp collector, always a stamp collector. An addicting hobby in my lifetime, I started my stamp collection at an early age, my teenage years actually when I was a High School Freshman. I found my old stamp collection from Manila and it reminded me of the good old days. I found so much comfort and homesickness cure when I saw those pages. I said to myself, my, I never knew it was so much fun collecting these old stamps, they look so nice! So I am back, stamp collecting is my hobby again! I got lots of used stamps collected from my pen pals abroad but when I ‘ve told them that I collect all kinds of stamps, they started to send me new and mint (unused) stamps. It was such a joy adding these new stamps to my collection. Someday I will take photos of my stamp album pages and post them here. Our Canada Post Office just issued a Diamond Jubilee stamp of Queen Elizabeth II in honor of Her Majesty’s Coronation.
P.S. One day I got a real nice postcard in the mail and I said to myself, perhaps I should start collecting them. So I did and that’s the start of another hobby, Collecting Postcards that have been postmarked from other countries where they came from and I started buying postcards to send to my friends and foreign pen pals, too.
