Hello everyone I am Wee-Chuan and I live in Singapore. It is a busy, thriving and energetic country but a very safe and crime-free place. The weather is a bit on the warm side and it is rather humid. But then most homes, transport and almost all indoor places are air-conditioned.
... mainly because I love travelling and seeing as much as I can of this lovely world. I do have a list of preferences but I am not very fussy. I like cityviews, landscapes, mountains, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, night scenes, winter scenes, castles, cathedrals, windmills, bridges, monuments, trains, heraldry, flags, etc - basically anything interesting in God's big world is fine with me. I prefer single view to multi-view postcards. Anything depicting your culture be it costume, festivities, language, food, dance etc will be interesting to me. I also like mainstream Christian religious cards (Anglican, Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant).
I like my postcard to be sent on its own - don't like it to be in an envelope. I don't like advertising, free or handmade (self-taken photo) postcards.
but maybe I should add that where postcards are concerned, I am not at all interested in royalty and personalities of any sorts be it TV/Movie/Sports .. (All men /women are equal - no one should be on a pedestal). Having said that, great men / women who contributed to medicine, research, exploration, community, faith - these are the ones to be honored.
I don't quite care for cutesy / kawaii cards, animals (except goats why? ask me LOL), humorous nor cartoon cards. ..please, no doggy or kitty postcards
Once I attended a water-colouring class but it was a disaster. I still keep a couple of my efforts as evidence of how bad I was (or am). Right now I am better with a circular saw and an angle grinder than with an artist brush. Nevertheless I cherish hopes of one day, being able to master it. Anyone want to advise me? LOL ..
... to me. I have the radio on most of the day and my MP3 and CDs collection is quite extensive. Although I like most music, my favourite genres are country and classical. Yes, a very odd combination ,,,. ..
I like taking a lot of photos when I travel and at one time I used to load myself down with a lot of gear (lenses, various bodies, tripod etc) But the years have tone me down in this respect. Nowadays I travel only with one SLR, an extra flash and two lenses (and my wife still complains - what's her handbag for?).
Although I have a lot of great (I think so) pixs of various topics - - don't worry ... I will not load your mailbox with a photo postcard of mine .. I always send store-bought postcards.
is a doorway somewhere in China that I took on one of my photo journeys. I like doors and gates - they signify freedom - they allow people to walk away (or come back) and bridges - because they connect people and communities.
(a) a wind turbine / or a wind farm,
(b) weeping angel of Amiens (France),
(c) a fjord (or any scenery) of Norway
(d) Glacier Express of Switzerland (or any Swiss trains)
(f) Marianne (embodiment of France) postcards Of bust, paintings or stamp reproductions
(g) Norman Rockwell ...also magazine n book covers on postcards
(h) town or County flags / crests
(i) Sentinel Rock, Half -dome, Bridal Veil Falls etc of Yosemite (I went there but did not buy postcards ..I do have El Kapitan though)
(j) A Sarajevo 'rose' ..bomb impression
..oh .. I am a guy (I know that my name might not give a clue about this) so I am (naturally) not much into cutesy, girly, frilly stuff. Give me trains, erupting volcanoes, towering castles, pretty girls in cultural costumes (or better still, in bikinis) any day .... :-) (am I getting myself into trouble here?)
Meet you in the mail .. Wee-Chuan
