About Me

** NOTICE ** I’m away from home until the end of December, so my rating will be late. If you didn’t get a thing from me, please let me know and I can resend after December. Hope you understand.

(Updated : 12th Oct, 2023) Hello! Welcome to my page. My name is Narae. I'm living with my husband in the city named 'Goyang', right next to Seoul. I'm working as a brand manager in a food company so I'm always interested in exploring foods in the world!

I have various hobbies including penpaling and collecting. I collect colorful stamps and postcards, and also some stationery. You can see my preferences below about my collection.

I also enjoy learning new languages(once lived in Lille, France so I always wanted to speak French well!), visiting art galleries, going for a picnic, reading a book, and so on.

Oh, and I do love traveling so much. My honeymoon was in San Francisco and it was my only time to visit the US. I rather traveled to European countries more until now. Such as France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the UK and Croatia. Among these countries, the city I visited the most is Paris which is 5 times already! I always dream about travelingβ™‘

If you want to check my pen pal / postcrossing activity, you can visit my Instagram from the link above. (ID : milkiss_post)

** Please send me a message if you haven't received anything from me. I always send it right on time and let you know when I have a problem sending something! So do not bad-rate on me before talking with me. Thanks :)

1. Snail-mail Lovers?

I'd love to meet new penfriends at the moment. So, please let me know if you want to be my penpal. I'm interested in long-term friendship! And it would be much better if you have similar hobbies to me - especially decorating and collecting PCs and stamps. Please send me a message if you want, with a brief introduction of you. Thanks!

PS. I’m not a big fan of K-idols or K-drama, so I’m not the right person if you want to share the interest in it :)

Comment: We don't get a lot of snow, usually, in Virginia (except for mountainous regions where there are skiing). Ocassionally, we'll get a "Snowmaggedon". We were driving back from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania last week and we got to see it snowing - quite pretty.
