Received: CH-120824 from Basel, Switzerland

Received my 4th postcard from Basel, Switzerland just a few hours ago ;)

Ah well, this mighty little ant traveled from a wonderful and snowy (we all like to believe that snowfall happens 365 days in Switzerland, don't we? Beautiful sight to behold!!) country called Switzerland. Ah well, on the topic of Pixar, one of my favorite movies from Pixar is definitely from A Bug's Life. They may be small, but they are mighty when the need arises!!

And after admiring the image of the postcard, I was stuck by how many postage stamps there were on this particular postcard. Made me feel sad and sorry for the sender as it does seems rather hard to be able to write some more stuffs with all the stamps jostling for space back there.

Over at Singapore, I'm actually amazed that it only costs S$0.30 to send a postcard around the world. Yep, that cheap it sounds. But the time needed to actually have the postcard arrived at it's destination may differ from they distance you see on a world map. Kind of found out about it when a postcard that I've mailed to China wasn't the first to arrive (it took 20 days). The first postcard to land at it's destination was actually The Netherlands, which took 9 days.

I am definitely amazed at the difference in distance when comparing between a world map and post office standards. Interesting, don't you think?
