I used to have old school hobby.
Collecting stamps and postcards. Yeah, for some of you especially the new generations, this hobby might sound pretty boring and unchallenging. For those who shares the same hobby like me would understand the feeling. =)
Last time, there was no facebook, twitter, instagram. Handphone? Also nada. I lived in a small town where the tv channels also very limited. I still remember how I would love raining before, because when it was raining, my home can received signal to watch TV3. Lol! Imagine how we managed to kill the spare time when we were young. That’s how I had came across to love this hobby.
While doing the spring cleaning that day, I found my Stamp albums. i have two albums indeed, the other one is belongs to my sister. hehe. I have many collections from the United Kingdom, some from foreign countries and not fogetting from within Malaysia. My sister was studying oversea before, one of the way to contact each other was by writing letters. Besides, I was active in ‘pen palling’ during that time. That’s where I got some of the stamps.
I also love collecting postcards. Mostly I got them from my sister. She told me, postcards was one way for advertising in UK. And it’s free! So she kept it and gave it to me. Look, I got postcards of Liverpool players as well… (used to be a Liverpool fan before. Will keep it for another story. hehe). I have postcard of The Verve, Bluetones, Primal Scream… you won’t have that in Malaysia. yihiii.. There is a postcard from New Zealend, this postcard really brings memory to me. It was from my mirc friend – Blair.(yeah…. mirc, remember??? lol) He studied in New Zealend and he likes to tease and call me ‘nerdy girl’ because I told him that I have to take computing course before. For him, computing course is for a nerd people only. hehe. That was it, we lost contact after I entered the college. huhu.
I realised that most of my postcard collections were fancy postcards. Only a few were representing the country. ahaha. Can you spot Rose and Jack from the Titanic postcard? Yeah, I was crazy over Leonardo Di Caprio when I was teenager. There you go, my secret reveals. Ahaha. I still have some postcards not in the album. If you love to collect or swap postcard with me, don’t hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). We can swap and I would love to do so…
Now, tell me… do you have any old school hobby?
