About the site

Mabuhay!

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.

#9 Cover and Postcard - Brazil (2010-09-23)

A postcrosser sent me a letter with a postcard inside showing the "Maria Fumaca" train from the historical city of Sao Joao del-Rei. Thanks Stephanie!

The cover has 3 types of stamps. The first one was issued last October 2009 and describes the pouch postal service, it shows a pouch being delivered, that scene signals the dynamism of the service the post office, a symbol of the postal activity. The second and third stamps are part of the 3 stamp set of Professions series, issued last December 2005. The Cobblers (sapateiro), tailors (costureira) and shoeshine boys (engraxate) are entrepreneurs with roots in the past.
