my postcrossing site



The Philippine Post is not known for its efficiency or consideration to deliver mail with urgency. It's a constant struggle to be trapped by a system that is run by ineptitude. If you've sent me a postcard that has been travelling for 30 or more days, please contact me and usually knowing how frustrating it is waiting for someone to register/rate a card....

I just register/rate them ahead of receiving. Eventually cards DO find their way to me, albeit sometimes grossly tardy.

I also NEVER flake on a swap. But once in a blue moon, mail does get mishandled by the Philippine Post. To the US & Canada, my experience is 14 working days for mail to reach its destination (based on my postcrossing stats). To Europe, sometimes 20 days.

Please give me the courtesy of nudging me when you haven't received my swap. I am more than glad to resend them :)

My Addiction

I'm just an overall lover of snail mail!

In my absolutely boring and mundane life in an office, a surprise in my letter box is all i need to sustain a level of excitement in my life.

I LOVE to swap & collect:

COLLECTING POSTCARDS, primarily historical places such as palaces, ancient ruins, cathedrals and UNESCO places....

I also enjoy receiving beautiful artistic/illustration postcards from your local artists (like Stenval from Finland etc). Black & White Photography as well! BUT NO FREE or AD CARDS please :D

Lately I have had the luck of receiving postcards of my favorite classic movie stars! :D I'm still hoping to receive Humphrey Bogart, James Stewart, Hitchcock, Audrey Hepburn.. and so on ^_^ would also love to receive postcards of old 1930's 40's movie posters :D or unique B&W cards of famous pictures.

I'M A VINTAGE HUNTER!!! :) I collect old photographs that depict anything interesting from men with awesome beards to portraits...

I collect antique keys and skeleton keys :)

I love museum souvenirs like bookmarks :D

I just love curiosities as well, conversation pieces like anything with historical backgrounds.... no matter how small they are! I basically put them in my mantle and it really gets a lot of notice.

I am a BIG PHOTOGRAPHY fan... and would love to receive random expressive art photograhy and/or lomography... polaroids... B&W... ooohhh just dont forget to sign on the back :D

Favorite Movies

Aw God, I am a HUGE movie buff/addict. It's a big pasttime of mine to spend my Saturdays in the cinema and buying Old classic films in amazon.

Favorite flicks are Casablanca, An Affair to Remember, A Christmas Story, It's a Wonderful Life, Hitchcock masterpieces like Verigo & Rear Window, Sunset Blvd, Singing in the Rain, Maltese Falcon...

But recent loves include Fight Club, Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, American History X (love Ed Norton), Crash, Little Ms Sunshine and all such wonderful movies :D




YES. I am open to private swaps :) Just email or send me a note :)

  • I have stock of GF Philippines! So let me know if you'd love to swap!

  • Starbucks mugs! I know it's a high risk swap, but so far, I've had a lot of success sending Philippine Starbucks mugs to the US, Canada, and UK ;)

** postcards (only stamped & written)

Comment: I was recently cleaning out a tote bag and found your swap. I'm so sorry for the delay in reporting .i won't if you aceved a of yuour goals for 2016 Some of them seemed a little difficult to achieve like going to see the Northern Light's. The one that surprised me was the picnic in Central Park. I can't even count how many times I've done that during my life. From the time I was a kid I went there at least 2x a month and then as a young adult I worked at a day camp about 3 blocks away and then went to grad school a block from the park. So anyway I must have eaten there over 50times in my life. Anyway I just find it irresting that someone would consider that to be goal

Comment: Sorry for the late rating; I was waiting for all my partners to send before rating. I love that you have so many non-book items on your shelf that you described as well. The cameras and typewriter are especially appealing. Thanks for sharing your shelves and for the mini tour of them!

Comment: Dear Aislinn, thank you so so so so SO much for the most lovely Christmas card eveeeer! It's not only beautiful and funny, but also means the world to me. It's made out of handmade recycled paper, WOW, I love all things handmade and recycled, and it supports a program that helps women who escaped prostitution in your country, OMG, means so much to me!! So yes, this is the most lovely, amazing, funny and touching card I've ever received, thank you so much for sharing it with me. I actually sent an email to Sanctuary Spring to thank Belle for the beautiful card she made. I can't see her story in the website, but asked them to thank her for me =) Have an awesome 2016 and hope your Christmas was amazing!!
Response: AM SO HAPPY THAT YOU APPRECIATED THAT :D When I came across her cards in the local market here in the Philippines, I really loved what she was advocating so I bought tons of cards. They are all amazing and I found out that a lot of American chains like West Elm and small stores have begun contacting her for projects. It's such a great way to give back to society as well as give these women another shot at making decent salaries thru art :D

Adventures of the traveling postcard #52. I started a new pc for myself this round (sent to you) and a new blank pc for you to keep. When you return, please rate, and if you're not going to do the traveling pc PLEASE send my pc back. Naked or in an envelope-either would be great, I'd appreciate it. Thanks, Emily
