Hi! I am Diane or @poppypaper on Instagram. I'm from the capital city of the Philippines, Manila. Currently, I am studying Mandarin in Beijing, China so my mail/swaps will be from here.

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 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, food, and illustrated rabbits.

  • 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 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 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!



  • white, cream, pink, pastels
  • Korean illustrator stickers and memos (eg. manet story, creme bonbon, ddoja0325, etc.)
  • letter sets, note pads, postcards
  • washi tape (without words)
  • kawaii from Japan
  • Koupen-chan
  • Sanrio/ San-X (My favorites are: Hello Kitty, Bonbonribbon, Mewkledreamy, Wish me Mell, Coro Coro Coronya or any character with food)
  • Karel Capek tea and postcards
  • illustrated bears, penguins, rabbits (eg. Maruco & Momi rabbits), etc.
  • Disney (Pixar, not so much)
  • kawaii/ Disney Japan Merch
  • vintage or kawaii Winnie the Pooh
  • classic Mickey & Minnie Mouse
  • Mickey Mouse Club (not clubhouse)
  • Rapunzel from Tangled
  • Wonderground Gallery
  • stationery/ postcards with food illustrations, for example: characters dressed as food or characters eating food, characters sitting on top of giant food, etc.
  • lemons, honey, picnics
  • couple illustrations
  • children's books illustrations
  • cookery postcards from Penguin


Please avoid sending me...

  • neon and dark colors
  • horror, halloween, goth, skulls, skeletons, bats, zombies, demons, horns, etc.
  • kpop, video games, celebrities, random movies
  • currency or religious items
  • space/ galaxy (except kawaii)
  • glitters and sequins
  • photography
  • keep calm series or cards with words
  • kiddie cartoons like Spongebob, My Little Pony, Sesame Street, Looney Toons, etc.
  • Simpsons



  • 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).
