Introduction

Hi! I am Diane or @poppypaper on Instagram. I'm from the capital city of the Philippines, Manila. I currently work at the main office of the Philippine Postal Corporation and I handle Bilateral Relations under the Philately team.

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 am in love with all cute things in general! I love kawaii characters, Disney, food, and illustrated rabbits.

  • Aside from collecting postcards 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 drink coffee or tea at least once a day. My favorite kind is fruity tea and anything sweet-flavored like vanilla and caramel. I love cute tea bag packaging (like Karel Capek) and am thinking of starting a tea journal soon.

  • 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 53 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!

Postcards

  • 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 though so I prefer not to receive those
  • I collect Tangled lantern scenes (I already have all from the Art of Disney sets)
  • I like to receive kawaii postcards from Japan
  • I also like receiving illustrated postcards of your country's local/ native delicacies
  • Please don't send me anything touristy/ country/ city/ state-related (unless it's an illustrated food card of your country or if it's a swap requirement).

Response: I'm so glad you like it :) I use Muji gel pen 0.38!

Comment: I believe it didn't really meet the swap requirements are most of the stuffs were not really "kawaii" and the letter was cut and didn't close. I am however rating 5 because swaps are exchange afterall...
Response: I'm sorry if I didn't meet your requirements as to what "kawaii" is.. I included items which I considered to be kawaii in my opinion, which are not necessarily name branded kawaii like Sanrio, San-x, etc. I don't understand this statement: "the letter was cut and didn't close". I sealed the envelope properly and if it arrived to you in a different state, I'm sorry. Thank you for rating a 5...
