One of a few proofs that a small quaint place can offer a bigger than life experience is The Singapore Philatelic Museum . Although not as big as the other museums, this museum gives you a comfy homely place. Walking outside, one can instantly notice its window (not made of glass nor wood, but made of a collage of stamps with a catchy phrase “A Window to the World” , very artful i must say!
Although I am not a philatelist or a stamp collector, ( Well, the last time i collected stamps was way back in high school when our Practical Arts teacher gave us a an art project with a theme ” Philippine History”. With a limited time ,i showcase my country’s history by collectings , oops, buying stamps , pasting it on a white illustration board with a little tweak. I wonder if he still got that one, i would love to post that ancient art work(?) of mine in this site. haha.). just imagine my excitement when i get inside this colorful place and saw more than ten thousand stamps across the globe beyond time! Memories really have a way of giving us back our simple joys.
Take a peek and let me show you some.
