About Me

Hello! I'm a nineteen year old girl, living in Jakarta, Indonesia. I'm currently studying Biology in university and hope to be able to work as a scientist in the future. I love collecting stamps, postcards, and anything vintage. I also enjoy reading and gardening in my spare time.

I'm a total newbie on swapbot, so I'm still figuring out the mechanics. I have been sending letters and postcards for a while now, so I can say I know more or less about the workings of the snailmail world. I will, of course, try to send out swaps on time. If I have to post a swap late (usually because of schoolwork and other school-related events), I will send you a message. If my swap doesn't reach you within a month or two, please leave me a message. I am happy to resend. Mail from my country can sometimes take a long time to arrive.

I became interested in the world of snail mail only recently, and so far I have enjoyed the process of sending and receiving mail. My mother gave me her stamp and postcard collection to continue the hobby. I enjoy looking through her collection every now and then. Snail mail makes me feel like I'm living in a different era. A small escape from the mundane everyday life, I suppose.

What I Like

  • anything related to biology (plants, animals, insects, etc)
  • cats. birbs. WHALE SHARKS. red pandas. and maybe even llamas
  • sunrise and sunsets, the sky in general
  • neutral/earthy tones
  • vintage/old items
  • history, mythology, urban legends, and the likes
  • learning about new culture
  • puns and memes
  • a good story
  • any kind of tea
  • a longgg letter!

What I Don't Like

  • talking about sex, religion, discrimination, and other offensive topics
  • a short letter written without any feeling :(

Pen Pal Letter

I enjoy reading long letters (and I mean LONG letters). They can be about anything: rambling, venting, daydreaming. I'm okay with simple letters that have no decorations. I don't mind if you don't send me any goodies at all. I write letters to make new friends and exchange stories.

Dos: Send me a long letter about you, your culture, or anything you want to tell me.

Donts: Send me short letters :(

I prefer not to talk about religion, discrimination, and or other offensive topics (when we get to know each other better, I may be open to discussing it, though).

Postcards

I like any kind of store bought/handmade postcards. No free/ad postcards. I don't mind if you send it to me naked or in and envelope, but please write me a note on the back of the postcard :)

Favorite kinds of postcards: - about your city or country - with photos of nature - about your culture - any kind of art postcard

Dos: Please write a note on the back of the postcards. Tell me something about you or your city and country. Tell me something about you culture, history, myths, legends. I love learning about different cultures. Tell me something that I might not know about you, your culture, or the world in general.

Don'ts: Please don't send me anything related to religion, discrimination, and or other offensive topics.

Random Facts About Me?

  • When I was younger, I used to live in Australia for five years. I lived in Canberra and Melbourne, but I mostly remember my time in Melbourne since I'm a little older then. I miss living in Australia. I miss the wildlife, the four seasons, and the libraries.
  • I'm part of the track team in uni, but I haven't been very active recently. I usually run short distance races (400m).
  • I love reading fiction books, general fiction, historical fiction, classics, fantasy, a little bit of science fiction, and a little bit of romance from time to time.
  • Out of all the disciplines in Biology, I love Botany the most.
  • Sometimes I find it hard to tell between left or right. When navigating for someone else, I often have to think twice before giving directions. It's why I like to wear bracelets only on my left hand.

I'll add to this list when I've come up with some other random facts about me. For some reason, I've come up blank :")

What I Collect

  • postage stamps (used and unused), especially flora and fauna themed stamps or anything interesting (like seasonal stamps).
  • postcards with written notes on the back
  • any other memorabilia

Extra: Not something that I collect, but I enjoy receiving tea. I don't have any allergies and I'd love to try many different kinds of tea.

Stickers and washi are also welcome. Anything I can use in my journal is very welcome ;)

Letter Topics

This is just a little idea from me in case you're stuck on what to write.

  • tell me about you. How was your day? What are you currently working on? What are your dreams for the future?
  • your likes and dislikes. Hobbies and interests?
  • your town, city, or country. What is it like living where you are? What are the tourist attractions in your country? What would foreigners find surprising about your country?
  • go philosophical? I don't mind talking about deep philosophical topics.
  • tell me a joke or a funny thing that happened to you.

Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely detailed email swap! It really felt like I got a peek into your lovely life. Even I don't like when they keep meetings or trainings around lunch time. I need to eat on time! Currently, I am catching up with swaps and planning and hence would avoid having penpals and more swaps. But, I will surely keep you in mind when I feel like writing to someone! Hope you keep up with your gratitude journal. Have a great day!
Response: No problem! Thanks for letting me know! <3
