IMPORTANT: When sending items to the Philippines, please avoid declaring at customs. Packages, parcels, or even just envelopes with the customs sticker are taxed here in my country, even if they are sent as gifts. We have to pay quite a large sum (compared to the value of the package) to receive the mail.

Hi! I am Diane or @poppypaper on Instagram. I'm from the capital city of the Philippines, Manila.

About me:

  • I love to travel and to see things with my own eyes which is why I’m not a very big fan of photography or tourist/view postcards. I especially love traveling to Japan! I try to travel to Japan at least once a year and would like to live and work there someday.

  • I used to work at the Philippine Postal Corp. as a product manager for Philately. Mainly dealing with bilateral relations or partnerships with other countries.

  • I am in love with all cute things in general! I love kawaii characters, Disney, cute food, and illustrated rabbits. SEND ME SOMETHING CUTE AND I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER❤️

  • I am a huge Disney fan and have been to all the Disneyland parks in the world. My favorite is the one in Tokyo! I haven’t been to Walt Disney World though so it is a big dream of mine to be able to go there. Although I love Disney, I’m not that much of a fan of Pixar, Marvel, and Starwars.

  • Aside from collecting postcards, stationery and snail mail, another hobby of mine is baking. A couple years ago, I decided to study pastry arts on the side and got my 2nd diploma.

  • I am a huge fan of bargain hunting! The thrill of buying something at the lowest price possible just excites me! Here in the Philippines, we have Japanese Surplus Shops. Those are my faves! They look like thrift shops but all of their items are used items from Japan! They offer a wide range of products, from furniture, tableware, clothing, to stationery. I've found a lot of great finds from those types of stores. Do you know the show Extreme Couponing? I think I would be really good at it, if only coupons were available in the Philippines...

  • I drink coffee or tea at least once a day. My favorite kind is fruity tea and anything sweet-flavored like vanilla and caramel. I am not a big fan of herb tea as I would rather eat herbs than drink them. I like chai too! I love cute tea bag packaging (like Karel Capek) and am thinking of starting a tea journal soon. *April 2019 update: I finally started my tea journal!

  • I am pescatarian! This means I don’t eat beef, chicken, pork, and other similar meat, except for seafood. I do eat dairy and eggs, still!

  • I studied Mandarin in Beijing for a few months in 2019 so if you know how to write in Chinese, please do so! I would love to practice/ review my skills!

  • I started my postcard collection in September 2017, when I joined Swapbot.

I am sending swaps through my country's ordinary postal service which will take several weeks (the longest was 63 days!) for it to arrive at your country. Unfortunately, this service does not offer any tracking number but I will be happy to send another package if you don't receive what I have sent after a month. Please send me a message and let me know first before giving me a negative rating!

Can't wait to swap with you!

  • I prefer illustrations, drawings, sketches, cartoons, over photography.
  • I prefer postcards written with a fake/ small value stamp, in an envelope (I will not rate down if swap requires it to be written and stamped and you send it in an envelope)
  • I have Disney postcard box sets so I prefer not to receive those
  • I collect Tangled lantern scenes (I already have all from the Art of Disney sets)
  • I like receiving illustrated postcards of your country's local/ native delicacies
  • Please avoid sending me anything touristy/ country/ city/ state-related (unless it's a food card or if it's a swap requirement).

Comment: Thank you for the swap. I just looked up a couple recipes for pandesal and am going to try it. temperatures have fallen a bit here, with the ending of our summer, so I have been doing more baking the past week or so. It looks soooo good.
Response: Would love to see a photo of that. A common way to eat pandesal in my country is by dunking it in hot coffee! Let me know how it goes :)
Comment: your toast looked very good <3
Comment: Thank you sharing your photos and I like that you put some extra detail.
Comment: I am so in love with this postcard! I love all the stickers! I do eat Belgian waffles but not that often hehe
