It's Monday, March is about to end, and I'm almost about to complete 1 month with a new job.Things aren't at full speed yet so I have some time to slowly sip tea and enjoy a small piece of steamed cake in front of my work laptop. They look pretty similar to what I have on this postcard. At the back of it is a delightful message:

This postcard has crossed over 8,000 km to make you smile. Did it work?I wish you to collect the greatest postcard collection. Be positive! Be happy!

Heartwarming, isn't it? 

I've been engrossed with my emotional bubble for the past 1 year. I stopped doing several hobbies, like blogging about my postcards. Although I picked up new hobbies, I still miss this one. So hear y'all! I am back to blogland. I am not sure if I'll be able to post as much as before. But at least for a comeback, I will do my best to complete the April 2015 A-Z Challenge. Curious, click here to find out more:

I completely missed the Theme Reveal on 23 March so I am using this post for that. I would be posting about "Buildings and Structures" on postcards that I've received through the mail during the last 4 years. It is a challenge because until now, I don't have the appropriate postcards for letters "Q" and "Y". But well, I'll just hop on the A-Z ride and cross my fingers I get something in my mailbox fitting for those letters before 20 April. And oh, another challenge, I will be traveling starting the third week of April for a training overseas ... So let's see how I cope with one blog entry for one letter a day. It should be interesting to find out!

For the meantime, I am sharing my blue-themed postcard above to Sally's Blue Monday

Have a great week ahead everyone! :)
