The new post office. I must say it is a pretty big post office for a small town. Maybe BG folks still prefer letters to email Smile Lucky them. I would rather receive communication on a piece of lavender scented paper than an electronic message saying I have won a million Euros to be collected in Nigeria.

Letters (love letters for that) written on lavender scented paper sure is nice to receive and to keep esp. if it reads something like: "Dear Tom, you are twenty five minutes too late - I married your best friend Dick." Ha ha ha.


Now, they complain the modern love is like micro-wave oven!! He he he. Wink

Susan, nothing beats the olde fashion way of dating. Slow but gratifying. You sent snail mail and bouquets of real flowers. Not emails and virtual attachments. If in Ipoh, you met face to face in Coronation Park (or some secluded spot in Thompson Road) and not in a chat room behind a computer.

Writing love letters in the sand as sung by Pat Boone. I think thats another romantic way of expressing yr. love.

Romanticism has definitely taken on a whole new meaning in the 21st century. The marvels of information technology has rewritten the parameters by which we express our love and affection. However, fast and efficient means of relaying our feelings are not necessarily the most effective way to convey our romantic notions. Speaking for myself, I would prefer the time-tested approach, and that is to reach out to touch someone. Simple gestures like sending a greeting card, a bouquet of flowers or some small gifts seem so much more tangible and real than mere words that are circulated through cyber space. During my time, the young and fearless have trekked the beaten path to secluded places like Polo Ground, Stadium Perak and Coronation Park to do some 'moon-shining'. Baby-boomers of my generation have been there, done that, and if I were to do it all over again, I will still opt for the old-fashion way of dating,

From this pic., this post office looks new and neat since it was posted by Kayes 4 years ago but when I was here about a week ago, it looks to me it needs a new coat of paint - badly!!
