Lost & Found Stamp Album

Collecting stamps were my hobby since I was in primary school. Buying and collecting the latest stamps was part of my life that time. Besides than a new one, my dad were also helping me to find the used stamps from oversea envelope. He loved to collect stamps when he was young too. He gave me all of his collection when he found out that I loved to collect stamp. Until I stepped in to secondary school, the feeling of collecting stamps were slowly gone and disappeared from my mind. Until I just kept my stamp album into the closet.

Day by day, month by month and year by year! Until the last few months when I bought a stamps from the post office, I only realized where the hell are all of my collected stamps? I looked into my drawers, closet and book rack. I was unable to find it! I thought it might be totally lost and gone! Maybe my mom had threw away for recycle? "When that thing are new, I'll take care of it. And when it's already old, I'll throw it away", I talked to myself. This is my bad habit. Until that day when I need to it, I can't find! And it's already late for me to feel regret! Gosh!

Just now, my mom asked me to check all the books from my closet either still got use or not. If not, she will send it all to the charity organisation. And my mom actually had already took out all the books and put inside a big box. I'm a lazy pig isn't it? I started to keep checking one by one. Some are SPM buku teks, kamus, magazines and many more excepted the "X-book". LOL! Just kiding.

Check, throw, check, throw and suddenly I saw a book which is labeled "Stamp Album"!! Oh my...that's my old stamp album!! And finally I found it. I flipped from page to another page. All of my stamps are attached fine! Thank you, my mom and sorry! I thought she had threw it away at first. Haha! And I will keep it in a safe place and will let my children to have it in the future! Thanks again!
