Update on a stamp collector friend

It’s always a delight to read my former editor’s status on Facebook. Before, he was only posting about stamps and other memorabilia on Facebook, now he is also posting/sharing his love for posters of Marvel heroes and toys, yes toys from a popular food chain, which he is collecting of late. By just reading and seeing his post made me realize that toys are not just for kids, but for kids at heart. It somehow brings out the child in me. I wish I could give him toys to add to his collection. But I think this stainless steel cross from www.joyjewelers.com/ is a more appropriate token. I appreciate his assistance when were officemates. And he’s a good person so he deserves something like this cross.

Stamp collector

William, my former editor is a stamp collector. He is into buy and sell of stamps and other collectible items online. I remember him trading or buying rare stamps when we’re still officemates.

From his site (pogiforlife.com), I learned about various kinds of stamps. There are the world’s famous stamps, the most expensive stamps, kids’ favorite Hello Kitty and Doraemon stamps, and various anime characters. And don’t be surprised, even Pinoy’s favorite heroine Darna and other characters given life by director Carlo Caparas through his comics stories were available in souvenir stamps.

While William is into this kind of business, I wonder if he ever thinks of adding gold coins to his collections. Will he buy gold online? I read somewhere that gold is a good investment because it protects ones money from currency devaluation. I’ll ask William about it next time.
