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 public holiday or even long weekend public holiday..

If you haven't receive anything for more than 3 months from the send out dateline, please let me know and i will gladly resend.

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. Also, if 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. Therefore all mails will be sent using stamps, unless we have a special arrangement (or if the contents of swap are expensive).

That is also another reason why i am currently focusing more on Electronic swaps :))

One of the biggest revelations about love - you cannot make a person happy.

You can make a person smile, you can make a person feel good, you can make a person laugh. But whether or not a person is happy is deeply and totally and utterly out of your control.

I remember the day i retired. I retired from trying to make you happy. I need you to go make yourself happy and just prove to me that it's even possible. We came into this false romantic concept that somehow when we got married that we would become one.

And what we realized is that we were two completely separate people on two complete separate individual journeys and that we were choosing to walk our separate individual journeys together.

But her happiness was her responsibility, and my happiness was my responsibility. And we decided that we were going to find our individual, internal, private, separate joy and then we are going to present ourselves to the relationship and to each other already happy. Not coming to each other begging with our empty cups out, demanding that the other fill our cup, and demanding that the other meet our needs.

It is unfair, unrealistic, and can ve destructive to place the responsibility for your happiness on anybody other than yourself.

About Me

I am an Indonesian-Chinese female (not a girl, not yet a woman) 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 2018 is to travel to all major cities of Indonesia. So far I have only been to Bali, Bandung, Banjarmasin, Belitung, Jakarta (where i reside) Medan, Pontianak, Semarang, Solo, Surabaya, & Yogyakarta.

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

I don't like snakes. Please don't send me pictures of realistic snakes. I don't mind abstract which is just a swiggly line or blured colours. I can withstand a cartoon snake. NO REAL SNAKES, please. 😨😢

My Collections

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

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

I collect stamps of these theme:

â–¡ Madonna & Child (Virgin Mary with baby Jesus)

â–¡ bicycle (even a tiny one on the background counts!)

My Pets

I have 2 RES (Red Eared Slider) and they love to escape their outdoor habitat to dip into my swimming pool, or the gutter right in front of my house.

Have been trying more ways to increase the "security" of their gated outdoor habitat, but every year, they find a loophole.

I have had them since they were a tiny little thing. I initially bought 5 of them, but only 2 survived after the first year or so. And now, they will be 5 years old this September 2018.


And my baby Peter (RIP), an applehead chihuahua

Comment: Thank you for your review of that Honeymoon book, Farah. I'm sorry you found it to be disappointing. One that you MIGHT like better is one I read and very much enjoyed: "What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding" by Kristin Newman. In my review on Goodreads, I describe as being a travel memoir and also a memoir about Kristin's search for love. I laughed a couple of times, so it's written with humor! :-) I hope your next book will be more enjoyable for you! Thank you for sharing. :-) <3

Sorry. I was thinking that this swap is via email and hence hadn't posted anything on your profle earlier.

Song Lyrics #2 Electronic

I love the song, 'Try Everything ' from the movie Zootopia. This has been sung by Shakira and every word is so meaningful.

I messed up tonight I lost another fight I still mess up but I'll just start again I keep falling down I keep on hitting the ground I always get up now to see what's next Birds don't just fly They fall down and get up Nobody learns without getting it won I won't give up, no I won't give in Till I reach the end And then I'll start again Though I'm on the lead I wanna try everything I wanna try even though I could fail I won't give up, no I won't give in Till I reach the end And then I'll start again No I won't leave I wanna try everything I wanna try even though I could fail
