About the site


This blog is about postcards, covers and stamps received. I also included some of my favorite stamps in my collection.

Feel free to contact me at jpstampcollector@gmail.com if you want a cover or mint stamps exchange.
I am interested in birds / marine life / commercial aviation / military / religious theme (like Popes, Saints and Churches) / famous historical events from your country / Joint stamp issues with Philippines. Year of the Rabbit (2011), Year of the Tiger (2010), Year of the Dragon (2012)

For covers, please limit envelope size to 220mm x 140mm

My birthday is on December 31. I'd really appreciate if you can send me a letter on that day with a birthday greeting.

I am currently working in an IT company, but I can still manage to find some time to go to post office to send postcards and letters.
I like commercial aviation and I collect die cast airplanes. I also love to do travel photography and interact with different people and learn their culture.

Feel free to browse this blog site and I would appreciate if you leave any comments / remarks.

#1 Cover - South Korea (2010/08/18)

Thank you Choonjong for this cover from South Korea.

The stamps on the cover illustrate the work of the 2 winners of International Postage Stamp Design Contest held in 2007. The one on the left is the work of Choi Mi-Yeon, a Korean national, titled "The Internet Culture that Unites the World into One" and the one on the right is the work of Daren Kaye C. Aquino from the Philippines titled "The Internet Culture that Brightens Up the Future."

Inside is a leaflet containing information on the stamp released last June 25, 2010 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Korean War.
