Theme Day: Post Boxes of the World

Singapore Post has a contest that lets people paint the local post boxes. It's a post box makeover.
I happen to catch these girls in action a few weeks ago, when they were suppose to be paiting them during their allocated timing.

What a coincidence with the Daily Photo Theme Day!

Guess what, the voting for your favourite post box starts tomorrow! If you are interested to see more of the quirky post box in Singapore, visit http://www.stamp.sg/




If you have enough of Singapore public Mail Box, visit others around the world!
The following Daily Photo sites are also participating in the 1st April Theme Day.

Due to time zone differences and other factors, the theme photo may not be displayed until later if you are viewing early in the day.

Gerald England said...

what a lovely project

kaa said...

the idea to paint them is fun and pretty to look at. mail boces are yellow in Finland.. Kate, make a visit to Vantaa DP ;-)

Jazzy said...

it's a tradition of mine now to come to your DP first when it's a theme day and you surprised me nicely with this lovely post box, very creative, i love it.

julia said...

What a coincidence, what a surprising project. 5 stars.

Nathalie said...

Fantastic coincidence! So much so that I thought you might have made it up as an April Fool joke with a little help from our friend Photoshop !
FANTASTIC ENTRY!

denton said...

Too cool. This was very convent for the theme day. The world gets to see your photo and Singapore has bright new mailboxes. Much better then Red or Blue.

Zsolt said...

Zannnie showed me before these smiley mail boxes and now you show me how they decorate them. very nice idea:)

Lachezar said...

Good one Keropok man!

Cheers!

don said...

Kuanyin said...

Hmmmm....I think our boxes should meet. They both are lots of fun.

Ham said...

Superb! Gets my vote.

Kerry-Anne said...

What a great idea! Maybe I should suggest it to our Post Office officials...

alice said...

Great idea, i think it could be a good idea in France where all public mailboxes are yellow and boring! Bon dimanche!

Dsole said...

I love that!
I hope someday we can make it in Madrid! let's give a note of colour to our cities!

Eric said...

What an excellent idea and way to be so original on theme day. I hope you told the people painting to look for themselves on your blog. They will be very proud I am sure.

Meg in Nelson said...

How fantastic is that! I love some of the designs. Do they wash it off later, or do the designs stay until next year?

Ben said...

WOW!
Love the idea, love the art work on the box!
WOW!

Jean said...

You are so lucky. This is one of a kind shot.

dijah said...

very creative design!I like it!I wonder why they don't have those type of stuff here in Malaysia.

Chris & Deb said...

That's a wonderful idea, and every post box will be different!

Bill said...

Fun shot. I need to get back into theme days now that things are settling down a bit!
