These two cards are sending to Russia. The left one is to Kovaleva in Novosibirsk. The right one is to Alexander in Moskovskaya Oblast. These two cards reveal and capture the old good times in Hong Kong. The left one is actually a shop selling Chinese Herbal Tea. Chinese believe that drinking herbal tea could help combat diseases. The right one is a photo studio. In bygone days, not many could afford a camera so people mostly go to photo studio to take family portraits.
這兩張都是送到俄羅斯的。左邊的是送給身處 Novosibirsk 的 Kovaleva。右邊是給在 Moskovskaya Oblast 的 Alexander。兩張明信片都是有關於舊香港的風土人情。左邊的是一間涼茶店，右邊是一間影樓。
Postcrossing is a website which serves as a medium for people to send postcards to strangers all around the world. For more, please read their website. I joined it back in December and I have already sent out 8 postcards. I have received 4. I will share them with you later.
Living in a world full of advanced technology like tablets and smartphones, people are gradually adiaphorous to each other because one often prefers texting to calling. Not only is it heartwarming but also precious to receive a card hand-written by a person with those exotic stamps sticking on the postcard.
P.S. It costs me only 3 bucks to send a postcard to any places around the world. I am astonished when I know this. I thought it charges like around 10 bucks. (Yes, I have never sent a letter nor a parcel to anyone except the subscription of magazine.)
在科技主導的世界，人情冷暖。我們很多時候寧願 Whatsapp 朋友，多於打電話。所以到今天仍能收到一封手寫的明信片是一件很窩心的事，還有那些充滿異國風情的郵票，充滿人情味。
