Wordless Wednesday: Shophouse

'Wordless Wednesday: Postcard' is recording all the postcards that I had bought from time to time for exchange purpose.

Shophouse is a vernacular architectural building type that is commonly seen in areas such as urban Southeast Asia. Shophouses are mostly two or three stories high, with a shop on the ground floor for mercantile activity and a residence above the shop. This mixed-use building form characterizes the historical centers of most towns and cities in the Southeast Asia region. Typically, shophouses consist of shops on the ground floor which open up to a public arcade or "five-foot way" and which have residential accommodation upstairs.

On 59th longest distance sent from Malaysia

K.Panda saw a series of postcard that she kept finding in my blog. Therefore she emailed me to ask for more information about the postcard. As the online shop which I bought this postcard was inactive so the information that I can provided was limited. In Postcrossing forum, she was been told that she can buy at a China website. As she want postcard in written and stamped so both of us exchange the postcards. Luckily I still did not finish using the postcard that she wants so can exchange with her.

My friend had sent me a postcard during her Perth trip. She and her friends were driving to travel around Perth. She told me that her favorite’s places are Busselton, Cowaramup, Margaret River and Augusta.  Hope I also have chance to go there for a visit.

I told Ryan about my dream and he wrote some words for me on the postcard.
