the art of being a hunter and gatherer

Saya selalu suka ke kantor pos, benda-benda pos bekas dan segalanya
tentang dunia filateli. Makanya saya rajin mengunjungi tempat ini
sebulan sekali untuk membeli amplop bekas, kartu ucapan, kertas surat
ataupun sekeda mencari kejutan-kejutan menarik diantara tumpukan-
tumpukan kertas cantik-cantik ini.

I go to this place at least once a month to look for those wonderful
surprises that I can find among its piles and piles of stamp albums, 
talking to those old moms and pops who's been selling stuff there 
or just hang out to watch them work. Such a heavenly space indeed.

Hey Jaime!
I used to collect stamps when I was a kid but now I collect for totally different reasons like for my collages and its pretty pictures. Stamps are sexy!
