DISCLAIMER: I live in a flood-affected area of Queensland in Australia, where we've had some shocking floods over the past couple of weeks. Australia Post has been a bit delayed.

You know the drill. If you haven’t received something from me yet, make sure you message me before rating, as your swap items may have gotten lost in the post. I will always send out my swaps, and in the rare case of them not reaching you, I will also always re-send.

About Me

My name's Kimi and I'm an Australian girl. I'm 19-years-old this year, and I'm a university student studying Linguistics and the Indonesian language.

I hope to become a translator someday, and my next languages to learn are Japanese and Korean.

My one true love is the country of Indonesia. I lived there for a while when I was 15-years-old and have been in love with its people, food, language, culture and beauty ever since.


I have a large range of tastes, and these include:

  • Geeky things
  • Kawaii
  • Kitsch
  • Vintage
  • Indie
  • Floral
  • Retro
  • Cultural/ethnic/traditional items of your country

I’ve put together a couple of Polyvore collages to give you an idea of the sorts of things I like. This is just a visual guide, however things that adhere to my tastes are preferred and will get you a heart.

For geeky/kitsch things, I like: Star Wars, Star Trek, dinosaurs, science-themed items (cosmology, biology, chemistry, evolution, physics, astronomy, etc.), Atheistic items (as in the stages of evolution, Darwin fish, satire, etc.), anime, comic books, The Mighty Boosh, Sonic, Mario, Nintendo/Playstation/Xbox-themed items (not games, though in that case, I only have an Xbox 360), zombies, computer/gadget-themed items, Pac Man, Space Invaders, robots, Daria, Ghost World and more.

If it’s related to science, sci-fi or video games, I’ll love it.

For kawaii things, I’m not picky as long as it’s kawaii, but I do like: San-X, Sanrio, etc., food with faces, mushrooms, etc. I’m not too specific about brands, or authenticity. As long as it’s kawaii, I’ll still smile!

But please no more Hello Kitty. I love her, but I have enough HK merchandise!

Also, I have pen pals, so letter sets are always greatly appreciated!

Extra info: Shirt size is XL or a 16 in Australian sizes. I like t-shirts.

Dislikes (ーー;)

  • Dirty/used items
  • Cigarette smells
  • Any kind of hair
  • Used cosmetics/food-related items
  • Rubbish or scraps
  • Religious items (meaning pamphlets or books, unless it’s related to Atheism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, etc. and not the Abrahamic religions)
  • Licorice, or lemon or orange flavoured foods


I prefer postcards depicting places of interest, for example:

  • landscape
  • architecture
  • attractions
  • infrastructure

Please no handmade or ad cards.


Comment: thank you !

Comment: OMG Kim I'm so sorry for not rating you earlier than now! I thought I already had a week or so ago, but I obviously hallucinated O_o. In any case: thank you so very much, I LOVE the goodies you sent! It's all stuff I can actually use which is fantastic. The lunch box is adorable, I love strawberries ^_^ Thank you for taking the time to wrap it all (I felt bad opening it before Christmas, but I couldn't resist :-D). I look forward to swapping with you again some time! Happy holidays! <3
Response: Aw, no problem, I'm so glad you liked it! Thanks for rating me, I was actually about to send you a message, haha. It's ok. <3 And no worries about opening it before Christmas. I opened one of my Christmas swaps I received too, hehe. ^_^
