Jilly's Postcard

Jilly of Monte Carlo Daily Photo and Menton Daily Photo sent me a beautiful postcard earlier this week. This was the first postcard I have ever received from my blogger friends so now, it sits on a special place in my apartment -- my refrigerator door.

Notice the jar of papers on top left of the refrigerator? That's my collection of home-delivery/take-out restaurant menus from the neighborhood restaurants. Now the secret is out -- I don't cook.

So do you have a special place in your apartment?

My whole apartment is a special place. A special cluttered place, hahahaha.

Right now, I don't have a special corner. Back in California, I like every part of the house except the washroom! buahahha!

So you could be a great food critic then.

;D

Oh for the love of food! said...

Your secret was out a long time ago, my friend! HA!HA! Do you ever get tired of eating take-out food? What's your favorite?
I like every room in my apartment, but I guess my favorite is the Lounge because I associate it with REST ;o)

tu en as de la chance, tu vas faire des jaloux. Je fais comme toi, tout sur le frigidaire ;o)

You have good luck, you will be jealous. I would like you all on the fridge ;o)

I just changed my refrigerator, so for the moment the door is empty.

Letters and postcards are getting rare in our e-world. Nice when you now and then still receive!

I love getting postcards. I have a box that contains every postcard I have ever received ever since I was a kid at school. I think these postcards represent a small history of my life! I always send postcards to friends and family when I'm on vacation but sadly I think postcards are becoming a thig of the past.
Perhaps I shall have to blog about it!

OK so I'm a packrat!

Oh Ming, how fabulous you have displayed the Roquebrune postcard. What a thrill for me. Well, you deservedly won it in the competition. Reading some comments, I think I'd better have another competition soon and send out more postcards. (Note: you will see NYCity Daily Photo is mentioned on Menton DP today).

I answered your query on Monte Carlo too.

To answer yours, I love my bedside table always piled high with books, and therefore the promise that books bring, but really the whole place is a special place - meaning clutter.

I'll trade you some chop sticks I've collected for some Quaker Oats. The oat meal hear simply does not cook :)

I've a drawer that I keep restaurant take-out menus, chop sticks, ashtrays, matches....

I'm having trouble getting beyond the vast white landscape of your fridge door pre-postcard! No magnets, no notes from school, no local council reminders, no bills.....lol.

My gaming/computer room. When we bought the house this room was pink. It was since painted white but it will always be "the pink room."

April said...

A nice place for the postcard where you will see it every day. An a nice still-life on top *lol*

I also have postcards from quite a few fellow bloggers on my previous fridge.

Now the fridge is full of magnets from the cities i have visited. :-)


You want a postcard from Singapore too? haha..

My special place is my little library.

And the roof. I love sitting on the roof and do nothing.
