  1. Old school! I remember writing love letters way back in high school and in college. T'was a time when courtship was real and did not involve hooking up after a few Facebook chats. Good times. Good times.

    2. I agree! I also like writing and reading personalized hand-made cards than those digitized ones nowadays. :) Sometimes old is better.

    3. I agree with you Rochkirstin. For me, digitized ones are a little too... plain. They lack the personal touch. Thank for dropping by!

  2. That is so cute! LOL! I can't believe a little 12 year old boy wrote that? He's quite an author (although maybe not for children books)! I remember having hundreds and hundreds of greeting cards and keeping them as well as snail mails (i loved snail mail correspondence like crazy, yes that reveals how OLD i really am) and still think they are super special. E-mails are so cold!

    1. I can't agree more! It's not about being old. It's about appreciating the "real thing." Virtual stuffs and greetings are just... well, virtual. Can't even touch them, can we? Snail mails and "real" cards really are special: thoughts plus effort combined. They make great souvenirs. :)

    1. Thanks for appreciating my post. People from our generation really treasure this part of our lives. I also used to collect stationery when I was younger, especially the fragrant ones. :) Sweet old days... Thanks for sharing your thought! :)

    2. Greeting letters made by the hand would contain the handwriting of the sender that reflects the personality and mood as well, so you would know more about the person. :)

  6. How nostalgic this was! I have kept letters since 5th grade, and I used to have elaborate notebooks of grad messages and slum books :)

    1. Hi Leira! I understand you perfectly. Those things you've written and complained about... When I had the misfortune of reading mine, I found myself hooking one eyebrow up, thinking, "Ang corny ko!" Haha! Thanks for sharing your experience Leira! :)

  13. Let's just say that we're lucky na naabutan pa natin ung generation that sends letters and greeting cards on hand. I know in the coming generations, sending hand written letters will be difficult because let's face it, we want everything fast. We're now impatient to do and wait for stuff to happen.

    My friends and I used to send letters every week (we're on different classes). My best friend used to give me gifts all the time kahit as simple as a ballpen that matches her. She even bought me an Anime poster before going to school.

    1. Yes I have to agree with you, Irish. But these "fast" ways of greeting each other through social media, e-mails or text messages really lack the "feels" or the sentiments. We're really lucky. :)

      Thank you for sharing your experience about this topic! You sure have had awesome and sweet friends! Thanks for dropping by! :)
