About Me

A stamp collector who has been collecting stamps for many years. Recently became postcards craze and has been actively collecting postcards lately. I am very active in postcrossing and also at a yahoo group for exchanging stamps!

I love all kinds of postcards, but my favorites would be map cards, lighthouse, mosques, landscapes, animals, LOTR, Moomin and Inge Look. I would be most happy if you paste nice stamps on postcards or envelopes when you sent mails to me!

I have also started collecting Greetings From postallove series and Flag of the World postcardmarket series. PM me if you have that to offer and I will let you know what countries I am looking for. I also offer Icons of countries series from The Postcard House!

June 2018 - I am trying to "discover" the crafty side of me which I know have never existed!! However I only know how to put stickers or washi tapes on cards or postcards! Washi tapes is now my current favourite craft! And I love all types of designs and colours, though my favourite would be any tapes with animals, cartoons, any form of patterns and those colourful ones, especially purple and black based tapes!

The ❤️ of my life has gone....

❤️ 21 November 2014 - My father passed away at 7 am on this day. He was 76 years old. He had kidney complications, too old to undergo dialysis and his health slowly deteriorated beginning early 2014. Extremely sad to let him go...I got a job closer to home to look after him and my mom when I completed my studies. Now it is just me and my mom. The house seems rather empty with just the two of us... ❤️

❤️ 13 February 2015 - My mother decided to follow my dad's footsteps. She passed away at 3.44 pm on this day. She was 73 years old. She had heart failure and was admitted to CCU for about 23 days. Extremely sad to let her go...I just lost my dad 84 days ago and now this. Now it is just me all alone. I feel that there is nothing left for me in this world. The house is now very empty with just me and the four walls staring right back at me...❤️

The ❤️ of my life are no longer with me...

Besides being absorbed with my stamps and postcards collection, I love cats too! I have 2 at the moment, Kimchi and Beckham. They live in a double storey cat house, outside, next to my room!

10 July 2012 - My dearest cat, BUCK, passed away last night due to liver complications. It was really an emotional day for me. I have had her for more than 10 years. She is half blind, a cross breed between mainecoon and domestic cat. She was diagnosed with liver problems 2 months ago. I cried the whole night. No cat can ever replaced Buck. She left behind 2 kids - Bubu and Nicol. Alfatihah. RIP Buck. RIP Bubu (passed away in Nov 2013). RIP Nicol.

Likes - Besides stamps and postcards, obviously I love anything with cats on them! I also love souvenirs or anything native from a country. Basically anything that tourists would normally buy, like magnets, keychains, tea towels, tote bags, stationeries, etc.

I love tea and coffee. Favorite would be fruity flavored teas and latte....yummy!!! I wish though Starbucks coffee are cheaper!!! LOL!! I don't mind chocolates and candies, as long as they don't have any alcohol or animal gelatin in them.

I don't really dislike anything but I am not quite into cute stuffs (too old for that I guess! )! I don't collect CTO stamps either...those colorful stamps you can purchase at stores. And please don't send chocs or candies with animal gelatin or alcohol in them.

Feel free to ask me for anything you want from Malaysia. Will try to help find it! You can even email me at new_rule5@yahoo.com
