I mailed my xmas cards

Yeah!!! My xmas cards to my doggie friends are mailed out yesterday. Those living in Singapore should get it tonite or tomorrow...



See my cards to send out, all stacked nicely... Eil had packed them in a BIG plastic bag and the people behind her in the queue weren't too happy to see her there. (hee hee)



But it seems that there is some promotional price for greeting cards to be send overseas. So all greeting cards to Malaysia or USA cost the same. Good thing, else the uncle at the post office would have to weigh all 63 cards. Then mama was there to help Eil paste the "oversea mail" stickers and stamps on all the cards.



Then instead of dropping the cards into the bin like those in the pic, Eil pass the whole bag of mails back to the post office uncle. So that the mails wont be squashed while going through the slots.

(The post office look like a fun place)

Here's the breakdown of how many cards to where:
USA: 33 cards
Singapore : 12 cards
Japan: 1 card
Canada: 7 cards
Australia: 4 cards
Malaysia: 3 cards
UK: 1 card
Germany: 1 card
England: 1 card

Do come and tell me when you receive my card and let me know if you like it ok. :)

Haa Boy and Baby, you guys had me worried there for a while. I was wondering why you guys have colleague??! Ok, so your Mama checked it out and it's true right? *Phew* Eil dont need to go 'hantam' post office uncle already. Isn't it greet that Singpost have such offers. :)

Hey Fu Fu,

How did you resist?

This is terrible amount of Christmas card.
The house seems to be occupied in the Christmas card.

Hey FUFU - we got into late - so if you don't send us one - no probs. We won't be able to do ours till this weekend and then mama has to get them printed so we will prob send ours out end of next week.

Mama already typed all the labels out.

We have no idea how long it takes snail mail to go to Singapore - but we hope not too long - we have a lot of friends now there!

Herbie said...

Fufu, I got your card! Wow, it must have taken you a loooong time to paste all those stars!

And I thought greeting card postage to M'sia os 40 cents and international is 50 cents? That's what the staff at the post office told my M.

Oh Fufu, my mom says that post office doesn't look like fun...it looks busy and like a lot of work for the people there. But doggies and hamsters might like it because of all the boxes to hide in and things to sniff. Too bad all workplaces can't have doggies and hamsters making work more fun for people :)

Chelsea said...

Uh oh...My list is not nearly as long as yours.
Mama must of made a mistake.

I really need to think about firing her soon. She is making a lot of mistakes lately!


XOXOXO
Chelsea

hana said...

Hmmm... a post office postage promotion? I don't think we'd ever have that in the USA. I hope Eil got you a good design! That looks like a lot of neat stuff you got there with all the crafty supplies. After Xmas, please post your card on your web site so I can see!

Toby said...

FuFu, we can't wait to get your card!! But I think it will take longer since we're in canada!~

Dear Fufu,

Oh, boy, oh, boy! I can't wait to get your card little buddy! I'm soooo excited! Momma told me to pace myself 'cause it might take a week or more for it to get here. Guess I'll save my happy dance until it's in my little paws!

Your pal,
Roo

Fu Fu! Nice to meet you, my honorary canine friend! I saw your picture in Butchy & Snickers' card, and I thought you were a squirrel!!! My apologies.

fufu.. we get excited everyday we get cards.. such fun!! Mom said she stood in line for 45 minutes because you have to get international stamps at the counter. But she said it was worth it. We'll be waiting for your card!

Fu Fu said...

Hey Simba, Yup! You better dont eat the mails. I bet lots of it are xmas card for you.

Thank You Huskee. I hope you like my card. Eil says thanks too for the BDay wishes.

Boo, Your side no promotional postage price? Not sure. Maybe it's an offer before they raise the postage price on 18th Dec. :(

Sunshade, tell me if you like my card ok. Hee, better work your mum on your cards.

Tin Tin, I know. The post office look like such a fun place to play hide n seek.

Fu Fu said...

Umekotyan, You're right. The living room and Eil's bedroom was full of cards at some point of time.

Jessie & Jake. I just mailed out my xmas card to you guys. I hope you can get in soon. Yeah, you'll make lots of friends in DWB. :)

Hi Herbie, Hee.. I 'supervised" Eil to paste all the things in the card. The post office lady said Cards to Malaysia is 40Cents for up to 20g only. And since my card is heavier, I had to pay 50 cents for all. But it's ok. ;)

T-Man, I know... The post office looks like a great place for us to play in.

Chelsea, please dont fire your mum. I'm sure she's doing her best with so many cards..

Fu Fu said...

Hey Hana, ok I'll try to post some pic of my card.. I wish I had your address so that I could send you one too. :(

Hi Toby. Yeah.. I wonder how long it'll take for international mails. I hope that it'll reach to you next week.

Isabella, I got your card already. You look great in it. :)

Yeah Roo, hang in there. I think it'll take another week or so before it'll reach you. Let me know when you get it ok. :)

Hi Derby, hee... I might look like a squirrel if I have a bushy tail.

Salchicha & lilly, yeah Eil got lots of stares in the queue from the people behind her in the post office. But it's all worth it to send xmas cards to our friends.

Fufu. I really really love your STARRY card.

I can't do the stars (it help when you have little paws. Mine are just too big).

Rafv want me to thank you for the card you sent him. He is annoyed with his mom for being away but has promised to send one to you.

We are meeting for the Xmas party right? Where and When is it?

Anyway, I want to wish you -
Merry Christmas and a Bullish New year,

Scuba, the Bull(ish) Terrier

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Fu Fu,

Hey FuFu I can't wait to get your card so I can smell what a hamster smells like, I have never met one but Mom said she used to have four of them. I might post the pics if you ask really nice. They all have gone over the bridge.

Paws & kisses,
Maggie R

Fu Fu said...

Hi Maggie, did your mum love those hamsters? I'm sure you'll like them too. Please post pictures of them. :)
