I was surprised to see this postal box near one of the old branches of Starbucks in Makati in January this year. It’s been ages since I’ve seen one/since I went to the post office. This reminds me of the power of snail mails.
A couple of Indian colleagues invited me for lunch last February. I gave in to their request to try the food in their favorite Indian restaurant nearby the client’s place. The food was spicy as expected but surprisingly tolerable for a Filipino’s taste. This was the first time I ate something not set in the traditional plates.
This is my entry for this week’s Photo Hunt.

I never would have thought of using that! I love it.
The metal mailbox is really interesting. Looks extremely heavy as well, no worries of Federal mailbox going missing for sure!! 😛

That’s a nice shiny mail box and the second shot is also great for the metal theme.

Great choices for the theme. I love getting snail mail. In this computer age, I appreciate the people who take time to write letters and cards the “old fashioned” way.
That’s an interesting dish.

I’m testing if I can comment. Funny, your post is not even updated in my pasyalan list.
I know that dish, I’ve seen it in one indian resto here. But I think it goes with some gravy or something where they dip it into. Is that that white stuff on the plate?
loved the photo of the old mailbox. classic 😉
