Hey stranger, I hope you're having a great day! You're reading the second coolest profile on Postcrossing. My profile comes in a close second because yours is just unbeatable.
My name is Chit (in Chinese it means sagacious). My dad gave me a lame English name as well - Jerry. So feel free to call me that too. I'm a 23 year old university student, graduating this year in 2019.
Growing up I was fortunate to have had the opportunities to visit some neighbouring Asian countries with my parents, which then has led to my great passion for travelling. In 2016 I took a gap year and started taking solo backpacking trips from time to time. I spent my Christmas in Burma for 2 weeks and had a great time there! Waking up at 5, still drunk, driving my motorbike in complete darkness with other travellers from the hostel to see the first sunrise of 2017 in Bagan - it was mad but totally worth it.
In 2018, I went on backpacking adventures in the Balkans (my first time in Europe) and India. I also did my internship in Singapore for a few months. It was an epic summer!
Besides traveling, I also love outdoor activities, especially hiking. I love how this city coexists with nature, and one thing people don't know about Hong Kong is that we have many beautiful mountains and beaches here. It's a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Things that I like: Photography (Check out my Instagram!)/ Politics/ Movies/ Video games/ Guitar/ Sports (I only do it so I can eat that extra slice of pizza)/ Animals (Cats and dogs are better than people, don’t you think?)/ Funny videos
Things that I hate: ALL kinds of insects/ Morning lectures/ Minions (What's so great about these tiny little yellow things?)/ MATHS (Just because I'm Asian doesn't mean I'm good at it. I barely passed Maths in school LOL.)
- What to write?
I love fully written postcards. You can write about your day and what you do, or you can tell me a false stereotype that people often get for your country/city. I genuinely enjoy reading what you have to share with me and value your message as much as the image of the postcard.
- What to send?
Keep in mind that I love and treasure every card I receive. It's always the thought that counts! I'm not a picky guy so I will be happy with whatever you choose for me. No pressure!
A few suggestions:
- Maximum Cards
- National Parks
- Domestic beers/alcohols from your country (Cheers!)
- Map Cards of your state/country
- Landscapes/ Cityscapes (Images that represent where you live)
- US Travel Posters
* I'll have to admit that I'm not a fan of advertising postcards...
- A little request:
Please DO NOT put the postcard in an envelope. If you can use some beautiful stamps, it will make my day! I always send my cards with various stamps and sometimes with a special postmark on.
Finally, thanks for reading. I look forward to your cards!
