2010 Christmas Cards...

~ Posted on Wednesday, December 29, 2010 at 12:40 PM ~

In this age of modern technology, it's not often we get to receive Christmas cards anymore. People would rather go for sending Christmas greetings via Facebook (guilty!), Twitter (guilty cos my FB status goes to Twitter automatically!), blog post (guilty!) or the common method of e-cards now.

So it was a real surprise for me this year to be getting not one, but TWO Christmas cards! Actual Christmas cards! What a nice feeling that is! It's kinda big deal since we don't really get any greetings card anymore!

The first was from one of the PR company I worked with where I get to review a couple of awesome music albums this year. I love the fact that they took the trouble to do this, I mean, I'm sure I'm not the only blogger working with them, so this is quite an honor to be remembered and thought of in this joyful season! Take a look:

The front cover of the card... creative!

A handwritten note with signatures from the PR team!

The second card arrived just today, from hubby's aunt in Sydney. Ben ever the curious boy, immediately took hold of the card and start investigating...

"Hmm.. beautiful color! I like red!"
"Let me see, this is D, this is E, this..."

And then he flashed us his cheeky smile as if he has managed to read out the greetings from our aunty Patricia to us... Cheeky boy!

So, there you go... our 2 Christmas cards for 2010. Nice thoughtful and memorable cards. Thank you, Amanda of Lafamos PR and Branding and to our dear Aunty Patricia for thinking of us and for your trouble in sending the cards all the way to us in Malaysia!

I've sent out loads of Christmas cards again this year, but they seem to get more expensive. Our postage stamps are so pricey now, that it's becoming a real issue.

Hi Steph!
Thanks for your compliment on Ben's cheeky smile! And yes, even though it's only 2 cards, I'm still thankful! Smile

Hi Elvira!
So happy to see you here! Come again soon! Smile

Hello CJ!
I think apart from the pricey stamps, our concern here is also whether the cards got sent out. I've have items which were mailed out by others quite some time ago and never got to me Frown
Thanks for your comment btw!

Hi Sara!
Thanks for your follow! I've returned the favor and looking forward to seeing you back in my blog sometime! Smile


ehem, you do know one other major reason why you don't get hard copy cards delivered to you right? you could have gotten one from london too, you know ;)

Hello Jenny!

Yes, I think too that real greetings cards somehow feel, well, more REAL.  The thrill of receiving one and opening the envelope is all together more FUNSmile

But again, our country have to improve a lot because I have sent out many mails but gone missing and never reach the receivers.  Frown

Hey Jo!
I don't want to be disappointed if your card never reach me laaaa! I've got half a dozen books and products for me to review which never reached me Frown So better not lah...

Hey Catheryn!
Yes agree! And I like to keep the stamps on the envelopes too! Used to collect stamps hehehe...


Hello. It's my first time here. You have a really cute boy! I was rather discouraged this year when I received only 2 Christmas cards but rather lots of Christmas smses.......

Hi Mamapumpkin!

Thanks for your compliment on my Ben! Surprisingly, I don't get many Christmas SMSes.. hmmm... btw, thanks for your visit and hope to see you back in my blog sometime! Smile


Yeah, I forgot what it feels like to get good old-fashioned Christmas cards in the mail. Didn't get any in 2010 =( Maybe I should send out a few and then I might get some back in 2011

Hi Fledge!

Yeah, it feels very nice getting the good ol'fashioned Christmas card! Thanks for your comment! Happy New Year!


Look at ben in the first pic, he looks serious. Christmas gifts are always precious me no matter who gave it to me.
