Pos Indonesia is super duper slow and the length of time you will receive depends on your luck (or the postman mood!).. sometimes it takes 2 weeks - 3 months.. and it takes longer when there are several long weekend public holiday, which I just experience in mid April - end of May 2017.. so if you don't receive for more than 3 months from the send out dateline, please let me know and i will gladly resend. Also, if I have not rated nor received your mail, i will wait up to 4 months before contacting my senders to discuss a resend before rating a 1.

Registered Mail is expensive in Indonesia. All mails will be sent using stamps, unless we have a special arrangement.

[Thursday, 19 April 2017] #

I am currently in a hiatus/timeout from joining swaps as i am stilling waiting on about 15-20 receivable mails.

If i have not rated, that means i have not received. (But there could be a possibility i forgot.) So don't hesistate to drop me a message to ask if i have received. It would be helpful if u remember what you sent, it might trigger my memory.

About Me

I am an Indonesian-Chinese girl who grew up in Singapore, and travelled around the world for my studies. My educational trip alone had brought me to Singapore (obviously), Germany-France-Italy-Netherlands (Europe), Ningbo-Hangzhou-Guangzhou-Shanghai (China), Wollongong-Sydney-Canberra-Gold Coast (Australia). My goals for 2017 is to travel Indonesia itself. So far I have only been to Bali, Bandung, Belitung, Medan, Semarang, Surabaya, Yogyakarta.

I am the youngest and the only daughter in my family. I am helping out with the family business in the mining industry.

I am obsessed with bicycles :))) so any postcard/greeting cards with bicycle drawings will definitely be my favourite.

My favourite flowers are Peony/-ies and Tulips. Fave colours are Black-Pink together, or red by itself

My Collections

I collect anything and everything bicycle themed. I got hangers, miniature, legos, postcards, stamps, trinkets, clothing, etc.

I collect stamps of these theme:

□ Madonna & Child (Virgin Mary with baby Jesus)

□ bicycle (even a tiny one on the background counts!)

□ baseball

□ wild cats/tigers family (incl. leopards/panthers,etc)

□ butterflies

Oh, i collect Air Mail stickers too.. the blue priority stickers. If your country is not on this list, do send me one pasted on an envelope so i can cut and put in my collection please :)) thanks! So far i already have Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine (white), United Kingdom, United States.


I have a phobia of SNAKES.. please please please dont send me any of that.. pictures/stamps/postcards/letter set/drawing/coins etc...

BUT in any case, please avoid sending it to me..

Thank you for your understanding :))

Favorite Books

I love reading novels, categorized below. If you have a goodbook and think i would enjoy, most welcome to recommend to me :))


My fave is Laurell K Hamilton - Anite Blake Vampire Hunter series. its about a vampire hunter who raise the dead for a living, is a human servant (or lover!) to a vampire, and talk about her kinky love life with a number of other lovers who are wereanimales (wolf/leopard/etc). Out of the current 22 novels, I am still lacking of THE KILLING DANCE, BURNT OFFERING, BLOOD NOIR, SKIN TRADE, BULLET. (update 10.10.2014)

and thanks to Della Pen @tealthecowscomehome , my latest craze is Colleen Houck - TIGER'S CURSE series :)) Its about 2 Indian princes who have been cursed into Tigers - White Tiger & Black Tiger. They have a trusted "uncle" who is immortal to track and save them both. They can only transform into human form for 6 hours per 24 hours. Now they have found a "key" and she will be helping them break the curse.

I am currently reading Sarah J Maas - Throne of Glass, and i absolutely love it :)


I'd love to have more recommendation on books that make my heart melt, or even make me cry. Books this good are just so hard to come by if there isnt any recommendation. Xixixi. So far i already have THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, ELEANOR & PARK, TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE, ME BEFORE YOU.and i just bought a new book from my penpal's recommendation - THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS.


My favourite by far would have to be Chris Colfer's The Land of Stories series. The ending of every book has left me in suspense and wanting for more. Can't wait for Book #6 to be published!

Others books that I love are NIGHT CIRCUS, STOLEN


I rarely read books like this because they are too longwinded. But i do have a few exceptions like HABBIE AND AINUN (a story of former president and his wife love story which i believe there is an English version which i am still searching for), HONEYMOON WITH MY BROTHER (the translated version is very appealing and i have yet to buy the english version).


(?)What are the rating criteria?

There are only three different rating criteria: I got my stuff and it met posted swap requirements (5 points); I got my stuff, but it didn't meet the posted swap requirements (3 points); I never got anything (1 point).

Keep in mind that you are NOT rating your partners on whether or not you liked what you received, only on if it met the requirements of the swap.

Also, remember that everyone (including the person you are rating) can see who you are and what ratings and comments you gave. It is important to rate participants honestly, but it is also good to be kind even if you have to give someone the lowest rating.

Comment: ❤Gorgeous postcard!❤ I loved that you used earthy tones on the left of her for me. So to answer your questions: How do you fill in your coloring pages? I usually outline the shape with the color I want and then use a stippling effect or add strips. Are they crazy colors you use or colors of real life? Just depends on my mood 😁. Last questions when do you color and does it relieve your stress when you color? I color when I'm relaxed, because I tense up when I color, I'm a little bit of a perfectionist it needs to be perfect .😜
Response: Glad that you love the postcard :) I colour the same way as you when using colour pencils. xixixi.
Comment: Very cool! Thank you!!! Thanks for doing this swap. I loved the new idea. Hope you host some more!😋😋❤️
Response: Thank you for joining. I'm glad it worked out well. Will make the 2nd swap available for May/April. I hope you join us again :)

Comment: Thank you for the great coyote card. I loved it, with the cacti around him. It was funny you mentioning trying to look up "coyote" and got guitar instead, LOL! There has been sightings of coyotes near Toronto Airport.
Response: Happy that you love it :) Wild coyotes sightings? That's awesome! We hardly see any wildlife roaming anywhere in public. xixixi.

brianfuchs rated for Postcard Penpals on Mar 13, 2017
Comment: Thanks for the fun card. I loved the raccoon and all the stamps, especially the rabbit stamp! I wasn't familiar with Lang Laev, but I've read some since I got your card, and I am liking what I've seen so far. I'll need to read more to know if I'm into it or not.
Response: I'm glad you like the postcard and the variety of stamps :) There is another by Allie Esiri called "A Poem For Every Night Of The Year". Its different from Lang Laev. Maybe you would like that.
Response: Thank you for rating (:

Selamat Pagi and welcome to Swapbot! I went to Bali in 2011. LOVED it. Not Kuta - hated that. Too touristy, Western and lacking in local culture. But Ubud, Lovina, Begugal etc were fantastic!

Bye untuk saat ini. Happy swapping. ♥
