Real Romance is in Snail Mail

ABS/CBN News reports, "Scratch that e-mailed greeting card and forget about text messages this Valentine's Day...real romance is in the mail."

Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost)will be offering limited-edition Valentine's stamps and specialty gift items for Filipinos who want to send their loved ones special letters or tokens this Valentine's Day.

This year buyers can choose from two different stamp designs. One has a pink background with a blonde Cupid smiling amidst a swirl of hearts and the words "Mahal Kita" (I love you). The other is printed with "I Love You" in 7 international languages, with the words "Shower the World With Love." Both stamps bear the message "Happy Valentine's Day 2010" at the bottom.

Only 70,000 Valentine's stamps will be available, according to PhilPost Media Officer Alvin Fidelson.
