Possibly a tie lol, I received your card yesterday but was a bit busy! Thank you for the postcard, the pig cancellation is so cute! :love: and I love the card :D

@Hotaru, yes sorry about the obvious blunder, the problem was I put the stamps on first then write the address so I couldn't just replace the postcard for a new one, I had for some reason forgotten to update my address book and realised almost too late! I'm glad you received it, it's a shame it didn't make it to you unscathed.

Oh the biscuits I made are here biscuits it was my first time doing something dipped in chocolate and I think it went quite well, they were received well. :D

Instagram is addicting. It is easy to follow the updates and fast. You can see the happening in one go and leave comment under the photo and received replies. One go beyond from checking one instagram account. The finger would click and click non-stop.. LOL XD XD XD

+++++

Warning!!! Do not click the link unless you don't want to lose your appetite. The food images are horrible!

Pos Malaysia is releasing a new stamp about exotic foods. You be the judge and check if the stamps are attractive. No idea what is the designer is doing. Maybe he is having a not-so-good time. The porcupine steak (watch at 00:17 minute) is like a layer of epidermis skin illustration. It is my first time learning that people actually eat porcupine and made into steak?!! YUCK! It is even legal? o_0"

I would like the stamps if they featured the side image of sea cucumber, grasshoppers and porcupine instead of the food. They are drawn much nicer than the horrible food images. I think I lost my appetite by the minute I look at them.

A forum member shared a funny profile of a Postcrosser. It's inspire me to laugh and read more than once! XD XD XD

@honhon
Thank you for the Christmas card from Karneval with scented stamp! :D
Karoku and Hirato are smiling faintly while Doctor Akari is looking softly at me. I think he want to give me an injection or something?!! And he is holding a chart perhaps he want to tell me I have gain weight?!! NOOoooo... !!! XD XD XD
The scented stamp is giving out the fragrance of basil leaf. It's so aromatic like mint! It's nice to see illustration of the whole plant on the stamp. Like what we would see in botanic books and preserved plant specimens. I remember back in biology class we have to make our own preserved plant specimens and every student have to collect 20 plants. XD XD XD
Instead of basil, we grow curry leaf, mint, red chillies, lemongrass, key lime, calamasi lime and so on. They are easy to grow so everyone can grow them.
Thank you for thinking of me on Christmas day! I hope you got what you wished for! Nice matching the green metallic pen writing with green basil stamp. Two more Tahitian Airlines planes landed on my card and lovely cherry blossom deco tape! Thank you so much for the Karneval card! I miss it alot! This is a great St. Valentines' Day card (I don't mind it's from Christmas!). Thank you so, so much! :D :D :D :love: :love: :love:

porcupine?Is that a wild animal? Jeez they'd rather be protected than be eaten. Human & animals are supposed to be in a harmonious relationship.
I found these food post cards on Internet, they look so cute ☞☞☞

Porcupine is a wild animal. It's not rare or protected like pangolin but it's rare to see unless one is living near the tropical rainforest. I never seen one in the wild but in zoo. Porcupine is a lovely animal. It's cute like hedgehog. I heard that hedgehog is wild animal in UK. So nice! :love at first:

Nii-san, I'm curious if you have ever heard of (or taste but I don't think you would try any) these exotic dishes? Surely you must have tried the sea cucumber? The grasshopper looks very similar to an exotic dish in a Filipino town but they used cricket instead. Never heard someone eating a porcupine.

@nisnoopy3 : Glad to hear that the card arrived ! About the stamps, well... They aren't the most beautiful stamps that you have ever showed us, but I don't think they are horrible either. I think nothing special about them, but the theme is interesting.
(There are sea cucumbers here too. They look so disgusting that when I was a child and went to the sea I didn't want to bathe if there were many of them - and I still don't. :embarassed: I tasted them once and found them uninteresting.)

@Tutubi
Among the three dishes, I know about sea cucumber and insect. I don't eat exotic animal or meat. I'm against eating wild animal except wild boar. Insect, I'm fine people eating them but I won't try one unless I have to! Yes, porcupine is unheard of even for you! :duh:
As for crickets, we use them as feeding for fish mainly.

Yea, I have eaten sea cucumber and it's normal to eat sea cucumber during special occassion like CNY. I don't know what is good about sea cucumber. They say it has good collagen for the bone joints like knee. Sea cucumber is tasteless with jelly-like texture. I have seen live small sea cucumber in the aquarium of seafood restaurant. They have a display aquarium to attract customers not for sale (eaten). I find them quite cute with soft body and they shot out some long strings.

@honhon
I never seen wild sea cucumber and it must be a sight to make you feel so disgust with their appearance! Hm.. :P

I haven't been to the zoo for a long time, frankly our local zoo is not as interesting as others. There is no porcupine nor hedgehog and sadly I only see them on TV. There must be various kind of animals in the rainforest and I'm really interested in it.
I really wanna buy these food postcards but they can't be sent because of the irregular shape.

Tropical rainforest is nice and fun to be except the warm and humid weather. The humidity is high. Maybe you can try to ask other Chinese members if they can send such cards through mail.

@Marie
They should draw tiny scorpions on the stick instead of grassy. I think this stamp is good for Halloween theme. XD XD XD

@Marie
That didn't take too long - I still have cards traveling to for example Germany and France (other than club mail) that were also sent from the meet-up.

Starting from March our mail gets delivered within four working days from sending. :thumbdown: At the moment a regular letter is supposed to arrive in two days. Of course letters can be delivered quicker than in 4 days but I still expect things will move slower from now on. As if they haven't done that already since the mail flights ended...

I was waiting for your message, Kate, being always the first one to receive :D
Glad it reached you :thumbup: And yes, that is correct: it's a Merlion emoji taking a selfie ;) I think those stamps are from 2017, if I recall correctly.

My turn, my turn! Thank you for the KnB card and a ton of special cancellations!

@Kate
Thank you as well, I was secretly hoping you'd send this to me when I saw your post on IG. :D

---

I nearly killed a rabbit this morning on our home street. :duh: I was driving to work and had barely enough time to register that something headed straight to the street from behind a huge pile of snow before hitting the breaks. Luckily nothing happened but I do admit my heart rate was a bit higher than usual after that (and suddenly I wasn't feeling so sleepy anymore)...

Hi,

I'm just passing by. I think you won't see me as often as before since I have some personal difficulties and have to let go some of my hobbies.

Anyway, thanks to Kate for your lovely Winnie the Pooh card with beautiful stamp (fiery pig and a lovely fairy). Winnie the Pooh was my favourite cartoon character when I was a child, I love him!

Thanks ni-san for your lovely Adventure Time card with beautiful stamps and cancellations too. It seems the characters are totally different from the other card you sent from this same series.

Thanks Elenna for both your lovely cards, one with a bridge and Europa stamp (bridge one) and the Valentine's card.

Thanks fruitpunch for your lovely stork card and matching stamp and cancellation. I hope you're fine.

And last but not least, thanks Honzuki for your lovely anime cards. I don't know which series they are form, but I like them a lot.

@all: I bought the Pig stamps and I still have to write all your cards, but well, it's difficult for me at the moment, so I don't know when I'll be able to post them.

Take care!

@Elenna
Which KnB card did you get? I want to see.. so curious! XD XD XD

It happens to me many times too with cats (stupid tom cat chasing other males) and stray dogs. I have witness several squirrels get squashy by running wheels (by other cars). I wish I did not witness them but they happened infront of my eyes and it's so fast that I have no time to react but to drive awayy.. Ohh.. I can still remember those moments.. urghh.. :mad:

@Yeye
Glad to hear you have gotten the card! I hope things are going to work well for you! Don't worry about the pig stamps. It is all good if you can drop by the fanclub when you are available. Just be sure to take good care of your health and your family! I wish you all the best! Thank you for thinking of us!
