Call me old-fashioned, in these days when you practically get things done through computers. I receive mail - personal and business - through the computer.
I have been collecting stamps since I was 10, when my Dad wanted to throw away his letters and I took a fancy to the stamps on the envelope. He later produced a stack of old letters which had stamps from the time when the British ruled Singapore.
Then I started having pen-pals when I was 12. Teens from different parts of the world would write me letters frequently. And they would send me stamps from their countries. I would wait expectantly for overseas mail. It was fun. Whenever I had an enveloped addressed to me, I would be on cloud nine. Even up to this day. I love to open my personal mail or a parcel. hehe....
I think I strike gold. Many of the stamps in my collection are more than half a century old, and some were issued to commemorate some big events. I have a stamp from my UK penpal, it was issued to commemorate the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana then.
I'm going to have them valued. hehe..... *rubs my hands in glee....*
