Sending letters is probably one of the sweetest, old-school gestures one can do for a friend or a loved one. Try it for once. Write a letter by hand and send it via snail mail. And while you’re at it, go the extra mile and use the stamps that show Filipino artistry and culture.

Four winning designs from the Philippine Postal Corporation’s (PHLPost) recent stamp design competition are included in the third installment of the five-year series of stamps to be issued by PHLPost until 2017 on the occasion of Mama Sita’s 100th birth anniversary. Artworks submitted for the competition centered on the theme “Teresita ‘Mama Sita’ Reyes, championing Philippine Flavors to the World.”

Winners were Emmanuel D. Emnace for an Untitled entry of Binangonan, Rizal: Chi Panistante of Dubai, U.A.E for Deep-Pride; Evan Titus Paul Labrador of Los Baños, Laguna for Tapestry; and Charity Rico Dultra of Bacoor, Cavite for Suot-suot and lasang nanunuot sa bawat Pinoy (at may pusong Pinoy).
