About Me

My name is Maryke , I will be 35 Years old in February 2019 and I live in sunny South Africa with my husband and twin toddler girls.

I consider myself Witty, open-minded and creative.

My likes

Favorite colour is Teal, Turqoise and hot pink. Bright Colours, Neons and happy designs.

I like gothic things or Rock style. I love Pin-Ups and Rockabilly, old hollywood and Art Neveau.

I love chocolate, preferably as dark as my soul... Lol!

I LOVE sticker sheets and have been collecting since I was a little girl.

Nail art . Harry Potter - House Slytherine, Halloween and zombies. Queen of England Betty Boop I Love dogs, my favorite being Wired Hair Fox Terriers

I love cooking dishes from all over the world, so feel free to send a recipe.

I'm currently teaching myself how to cook Mexican dishes (or Tex mex) and am always looking for Taco seasoning as it's damn near impossible to find here. Although I'm not into spicy food, i tend to keep my dishes mild and love learning traditional dishes from other countries. So feel free to also send recipes from your area.

I love all kinds of birds and esspecially anything that has Flamingos on it "be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons" I like Kawaii but it's really hard to find anything Kawaii in my country.

Not so keen on...

Not so keen on liquorice. Not keen on discussing Feminism, racism or any other kind of -ism.

Need to know

Please place Postcards in Envelopes when sending as they get lost on it's long journey to Africa.

I don't mind receiving tea, I like tea that goes well with milk and sugar. I also love Chai tea and will try any new flavors of Green tea

Please do not send me coins or money notes as it's illegal and the envelope will be confiscated or vandalized

Apologies if my letter takes long to get there, her if something takes a long time to be processed, we call it "Africa time".

I find it difficult to find pretty Letter writing paper or Envelopes here so I tend to decorate stuff myself. I also sometimes write an interesting fact on the back of my envelopes for the mail man to read, LOL

Comment: I can't wait to try this spice packet. It's totally new to me and it sounds amazing! The envelope was beautiful. I loved the quote. Thank you so much! Made my day.
Response: I'm so glad you like it. I loved creating it and hope you like the recipe. It's luckily a mild curry but full of flavor. Enjoy!
