About Me

Note: Dear partner, please avoid express mail when sending packages to me, as I'm usually not home, and the delivery could be stalled by at least one week. Postal system is usually reliable in my city, and regular air mail will do.

I'm 36, single, a technical writer for a server computer manufacturer.

My favorite color is dark red, and I'm owned by a ginger tabby I found in a park a few years ago. I love reading about others' lives, so don't hesitate to share a thing or two about yourself. :)

Following are the topics of postcards I'd love:

Cats (love ginger and tabby), other feline beasts, maps, watercolor, oil painting, nature, books.

Homemade cards are fine! But I'd like them to be simple and clean, as I kind of have trypophobia. One to three items are pretty much enough. Just don't overdo it.

As for small gifts, I'm a stationary junkie, and any useful stuff would make me very happy! If you're an artist, I'm more than happy to get some small pieces of your work (sketch or watercolor).

I'm a yaoi and otaku girl. It seeems sub-cultures are not so popular among users here, so if you happen to share the enthusiasm, don't hesitate to contact me! :)

I started writing letters on regular basis at a very young age (about 11). Mostly I wrote to friends whom I met during international events or those who moved abroad, and the communication between us lasted until emails became popular (around Y2k). Then we never wrote any more, thinking emails are more efficient. Ironically, it didn't last for more than 6 months until we gradually stopped writing to each other. I do believe online communication could more or less replace phone calls, but it will never replace good old written letters.

Recently I started learning to use fountain pens with converters, mainly to pick up the techniques of ink-and-wash sketches (check my deviantart link if you're interested). And one day I suddenly missed how it feels to write letters to people. I used to do a lot of thinking, looking back to my days to search for interesting things to write about. Realizing I don't do that anymore because there's no one to write to, I suddenly felt very lonely.

So I joined Swap-bot and Post crossing (IDs are the same) with the hope to find casual swapping pals as well as those who are interested in establishing bounds with old-school means of communication.

Also, if you just want to write to someone about random stuff or specific topics, I'm more than happy to exchange snail mails. Just message me for address, and tell me what you want to write about.

Note to Swappers

Urgent: Alia from Arizona, please message me and let me know which swap you sent the gorgeous postcard for...I couldn't find either your ID or the swap name on the card. I've tried digging into my list of sent swaps in vain...

I tend to send the swaps as soon as I get everything ready, so if you haven't received it after an unreasonably long period of time, please text me and I'm always happy to resend. :)

I usually rate as soon as I get the letter or postcard, but with email swaps I might be a little sloppy as there're just too many emails flooding in my inbox everyday. So if you find me not rating on a e-swap, please don't hesitate to text me, as I might have checked the mail on bus and forgot to rate.

Thank you for the unassigned Roulette Oct Round Card! :) Love the kitty card!! :) Did your kitty cackle at the squirrel? My big orange guy mews at the critters in the back yard, but our grey kitties cackle at them. The lynx pretty much try to stay away from humans so we don't get to see them too often, see more of their tracks then the actual lynx :) Thank you for the cute card!! :)
