Postcrossing | Direct Swap | Formosa, Taiwan

I got this card through a direct swap. Direct swap means, personally messaging another collector that you are interested to swap with a certain card she posted as “FOR SWAP.”

I used GF Philippine as a swap for this card.  Transportation category is one of my fave categories especially trains.

She used two stamps and that fruit stamp is a candy to my eye. 🙂

By the way, should you wonder if Formosa is another name for Taiwan.  No! Here’s the right description of the place —

The Republic of Formosa (literally Taiwan Democratic State) was a short-lived republic that existed on the island of Taiwan in 1895 between the formal cession of Taiwan by the Qing Dynasty of China to the Empire of Japan by the Treaty of Shimonoseki and it being taken over by Japanese troops.

So, now you know! <3

A Momma’s Pride

INVITATION

My heart swelled with gratitude after this girl was all cleared for graduation. It made me teary eyed thinking of all her hard efforts the past four years.  Adding to that thought is the happiness my mom would feel if she’s still around now.  I know that my mom looked forward to this occasion, too!

This is just the beginning of the future success of this girl so we should not get too relaxed after the Graduation exercises this weekend.

I would like to eternally thank the people who have supported this girl in this educational journey!  The road to success is endless and this girl will continue on.

F4 Meteor Rain (Liu Xing Yu)

From the 2001 drama

From 2018 drama

Background why I love this song?!

I am an F4 fan forever here.

First F4 I watched was the Taiwan/Chinese version.  In spite the goodness of Hua Ze Lei, I fell for Dao Ming Si because in spite his rough looks and ways, there’s something good inside, the good that possibly at the beginning he did not know that he can be good. Because of the goodness buried deep inside, she feel for Shan Cai.  I can really relate with Shan Cai ha ha ha

Second F4 I watched was the korean version Boys Over Flowers.  Then I also fell in love with Gong Pyu. ha ha ha although Jan Di was sort of more soft and tanga! lols!

I haven’t watched the Japanese version but I hope to watch it one of these days.  But then I possibly could watch the 2018 remake first which will be shown anytime soon.

Now click on the vid and sing along!
