The beauty in everyday life

This morning I went to work with Bandi because he needed to go to his client’s office which coincidentally located near to my office. We spent one hour in the train talking about stuffs. When we finally got seats and sat I took out three postcards from my bag. He asked me what those are and whom those are from.

I told him it’s my postcrossing hobby. He knows about my postcrossing but only this time he read the postcards together with me. I showed him the three postcards I received the day before and one of them is the Neuschwanstein Castle that we will visit this October.

The postcards pictures from Germany, Shanghai, and Thailand.

My favorite part: reading what strangers say!

Bandi laughed when I showed him the stamp from the Thai postcard. “It’s so cuteee!” I shrieked. Then he asked me whether I knew all of the flag and you know what? I DIDN’T!! Lol.

Bandi, in the other hand, always likes to be mr. smart-ass so he was like, “This is Brunei, Myanmar and Laos.”

The cutest and the longest stamp ever!

Then I realized, I only forgot the flags of the places I never traveled to! so it’s true that traveling does make me smarter! Hahaha. Another reason to go traveling, riiiight?!

So we talked and Bandi asked me, “Why do you still have time for things like this?”

“Like what??”

“Like sending postcards to strangers and creating stupid games?”

(Stupid games refers to this: see below picture)

Then I realized, WHAT THE F? I’ve been wasting to much time for….

DOING AWESOME STUFFS LIKE THIS? Hwahahahahah!

I love to host and create games like this. For me, it’s having fun. And yeah, I spent time to find nice postcards according to the stranger’s request and also paid for stamps but I enjoyed it. :)

Since my life is pretty much flat, go to work, saving money and loving the same person over and over again, I figure I must make some fun and excitement along the way.

I was asked why do I have such a boring job, well… because I need the money. HAHAHAHA!

I did work as a journalist for 4 months but didn’t enjoy the non-stop working hours and I couldn’t write things I wanted. Then I worked as a teacher that I LOVE but then yeah, the money is not that good. Passion versus money right?

I’m the least materialistic person you’ll know but I feed my parents and I want to go travel around the world. So I put my priority over my passion. That’s just my decision.

Anywaaay, back to the little beauty in everyday life, I enjoy postcrossing so much. Basically I love snail mails and writing with my hand. You know what’s the most excited thing about my wedding? WRITING the save-the-dates and invitations! It would be so fun! Haha.

I put some of the postcrads I received from postcrosssing before…

The latest postcard. This is Montmartre, the neighborhood I'm about to live in Paris later. The sender Angie wrote it in French! And I totally got it! (Guess my French Tutor did a good job!)

So yeah Bandi, I wasted too much time doing stuffs like this, and spending money for those stuffs but I live every seconds of my life laughing on simple things too.

And you love me for that, don’t you, don’t you!!!

Admit it laaaaaah!

Don’t put your life on hold, no matter what.

Either you must do the work you don’t like or you must live in the city you hate… you can always find a little part of the beauty in everything. Don’t waste even one day being grumpy. (well unless you’re on PMS)

Live everyday happy and grateful.

Cheers,

May, sticking stamps.
