About Philis...

On 11/11/19, I sent my 1000th postcard, SG-314289!
On 14/11/19, I received my 1000th postcard, US-6343837!
On 4/3/22, I received my 2000th postcard, RU-9030486!
On 9/3/22, I sent my 2000th postcard, SG-372453!

I am:
-A linguaphile: I love languages! I can read basic French, German and Japanese. You can write to me in these languages, but please use simple vocabulary as I'm not very fluent.

-Singaporean Chinese: Despite having similar traditions to Mainland Chinese, we do not share the same history so I am not knowledgeable in that aspect. We have four official languages and English is our first language.

Singapore is a city-state-island nation. We have only one city where the entire population lives. Compare land area (square KM) below:

Singapore: 729
NYC: 784
Toronto: 630
London: 1,572
Berlin: 892
Beijing: 16,411
Kuala Lumpur: 243

As of 2021, we had ~5.4 million people, of which ~3.5 million are Singaporeans, ~500,000 are PRs, and the rest are immigrants. So there's quite a diversity of cultures on our tiny island! It takes 1.5 hours to travel end-to-end by our subway. We have a tropical climate and high temperatures and humidity, so be prepared to have Albert Einstein hair if you visit us.

I like:
-Astrology: I'm a Leo!
-Astronomy: I love planets and stars, whether real or digital art
-Harry Potter
-Horror movies: can't understand psychological horror though
-Meet up cards: always love to see the unique designs
-Mythical creatures of any kind: cute or scary!
-Pan's Labyrinth: probably my favourite movie
-Pantone colour card: received 1419
-Phantom of the Opera
-Playbills or old posters (advertisements, propaganda etc): I love the art style!
-Reading: Feel free to recommend books!
-Taiwan friends: I really love the TW meetup card designs!
-Tom and Jerry

If you don't know what to write, maybe you can answer this question: What is your most hated food and why?

On 21 December 2016, I received my first repeat postcard! I'm officially a postcrossing veteran now!


*I do not scan cards, so please scan your postcard before sending if you want it on your wall!*
