  • When sending items to the Philippines, please do not declare at customs. Packages, parcels, or even just envelopes with the customs sticker (CN22) are charged a service fee here in my country, even if they are sent as gifts or even if the declared value is $1.00. In short, if your mail has a CN22 sticker, I have to pay to receive it.

  • Most of my family members have scent allergies. Please avoid sending items which smell strongly of perfume or cigarettes. Thank you!

  • 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 2 months. Please send me a message and let me know first before giving me a negative rating!


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 am in love with all cute things in general! I love kawaii characters (current faves are Mewkledreamy and Chairoikoguma), Disney, cute food, and illustrated rabbits. SEND ME SOMETHING KAWAII 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 drink coffee or tea at least once a day. My favorite kind is chamomile or anything dessert related like vanilla or strawberry! I am not a big fan of herb tea as I would rather eat herbs than drink them. I also don't like the taste of turmeric so please avoid sending me anything with that spice. I like chai though! I love cute tea bag packaging (like Karel Capek).

  • 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.

Can't wait to swap with you!

  • ATC's (I appreciate your art but I don't collect them and often have no use for them)


  • 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: So sorry for the wrong rating before
Response: Update: thank you for correcting :) // May I know why I was rated a 3 for this swap? I sent 10 (+1 or 2 extra) washi tape samples including Disney ones and other illustrated drawings on the tapes. I sent on time and made sure that they were at least 40 cm long and even decorated the envelope.

Taedybear rated for Stationary Giveaway!!! on Feb 8, 2020
Comment: Hi Diane, Thank you for the fun recipepostcard you sent. I have never had Palmelo but will look for it in my local Asian market. One never knows what is available there with fruit is in season. I will be trying the recipe with a blood orange here which may be as close as I can get. It is not a sweeet as a orange. Enjoy the day! Demaris
Comment: Yay!!! I finally arrived and in pristine order! I love, love, love the tiny pooh stickers you used to decorate the back. To answer your very neatly written question about my favorite Pooh version, I like the Disney one (with his red shirt) because the legend goes that Mickey gave Pooh his shirt so his friend wouldn’t be cold in winter! 😉 There’s a cute poster of it on Pinterest...
Response: I’m so relieved that it finally found you after 2 months! I saw the Pooh and Mickey story and it's so sweet. Thanks for telling me about it ☺️
Comment: Thank you so much, the card and the stamp are both wonderful! Wish you a very special year!
Comment: Very nice card that fits my profile! Thank you!

Thank you ate Diane! I’ve been having a great time swapping so far. It’s different from a snail mail. I like it because it’s faster. And there are some swaps that are also snail mail. But you’re guaranteed to receive your partner’s mail.
