About Me

Update: September 2016.

I've been getting a lot of messages saying all my mail from July and August have not arrived. I have no idea why this is because I usually slip them in the postbox after work and those that don't arrive usually get shipped back to me.

If I owe you a card or a letter, please please please do let me know!


Hi! This is Yu Rou from Malaysia. I'm in my 20s, currently residing in KL even though I originate from Kuching, Borneo, land of the Hornbills!

I'm a post-grad student pursuing a Masters in Microbiology, fluent in English, Mandarin (I can understand traditional, but I prefer to write in simplified), and Malay. I can understand the bare basics of French, German and Japanese.

I work in the university, demonstrating labwork for undergraduate students. At the same time, I part-time as a tutor for primary school and secondary school kids.

(Ps, the primary school kids love mail, so if you can, please drop them a card at this address:

Primary 4 & 5 Students
Pusat Tuisyen Berkualiti Memori
1-1, Jalan Equine, 9A, Taman Equine
43300 Seri Kembangan
Selangor Malaysia

Thanks!)

I'm a gender-queer, bisexual Methodist Christian who was raised conservative but turned out liberal.

If you want to write a letter, but don't know what to say, tell me about your craziest ambition, and your weirdest dream. Tell me about your worst and best experience with a friend. Tell me whether you've been to my country and if you liked it or not.

Take note!

Malaysia is really weird when it comes to mail. I tried to send my friend in the US a badge, but they cut it open and took the badge, leaving only the letter. I will do my best to package things properly so that they can't open and steal things.

Bulky packages have a tendency to be opened and go missing so maybe it'd be better if you send me just tiny little things.

If your mail hasn't arrived after a month, it probably got confiscated by customs here. Let me know and I'll send you another!

Favorite Music

I was brought up on Classical but I grew to love swing music and jazz. I'm currently hooked on Oh Wonder and Halsey! I also love Kimbra.

When it comes to Chinese music, I love 韩红 and a lot of 民间歌曲. I'm also extremely fond of wuxia/ancient style Chinese songs who have lyrics that are full of descriptive imagery.

I love Perfume, Tempura Kidz, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

I enjoy songs by Mother Mother, Second Person, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

Favorite Books

Currently hooked on the Dresden Files! I am a huge fan of Harry Potter, even though my family thinks it's the work of the Devil. I am not fond of Twilight and 50 shades though.

My fave is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, followed by Spirits Abroad, by Zen Cho. (Seriously that book is a complete hoot, I cried with laughter)

Favorite Crafts

I knit, I sew, I crochet, and I draw. Postgrad life doesn't leave much time for all these nowadays, but I still do my best to leave time for writing short stories, or indulging in scarf-making.

Favorite Television

Shows that I really like
* Elementary
* Sense8
* 齐天大圣孙悟空
* 花木兰
* Thor
* Avengers
* Crimson Peak
* Kingsman: The Secret Service

Currently pursuing:
* Miraculous Ladybug
* One punch man
* Elementary
* Agent Carter
* Welcome to Night Vale

Comment: Loved it, loved it, loved it! Very poetic and beautiful. I could tell you're a teacher like me. Life-long learning has always been my goal as a teacher and a human being. Look for an AZ PC coming your way for your students. Thanks for joining my swap and sharing your bio!
