About Isaac...


I'm a 35-year-old bean counter/part-time finance student living in a coastal city called Wollongong in NSW. I like travelling and I have been to ES, PT, FR, LU, BE, NL, DE, CH, DK, NO, SE, FI, EE, LT, LV, PL, CZ, AT, HU, RO, BG, GR, IT, UK, IE, US, CA, BR, AR, ZA, UG, TZ, CN, HK, MO, JP, KR, TH, KH, VN, MY, SG, ID, NZ and AE, so I get chances to talk to others about local culture - this is also how my passion of postcard started. Now I buy local postcards as souvenirs during each trip, and also maximum cards from post office regularly.

I'm ethnic Chinese, grew up as a radio fan - BBC Radio 4 and NPR are my favourite stations. I enjoy reading fiction, autobiography, history books, and many textbooks. I also use iPad to read some magazines. I am a film buff and try to go to the cinema every week. I am fond of several outdoor activities e.g. hiking & camping and reached the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro in Feb 2012. Running is my routine exercise, and I have done the marathon 5 times with the PB of 3:57:21. I started triathlon training in 2016 and daily meditation in 2017.

Further considerations:
+ I prefer 4 x 6-inch cards as they fit my album well.
+ Please stamp the card as it should be.
+ If there is no English description at the back, please tell me what the card is about.
- Please hold the multi-view cards for whoever likes it.
- Folded greeting cards, ad, self-printed, homemade cards or cards from printing websites are not genuine postcards.
- Please value intellectual property and do not distribute postcards without copyright.
- Postcards are better represented by their own people. Please do not send cards from a different country.

Please take it easy:
If you have limited cards, please send one closely connected to you or a card that can represent your country. Have a smile and share your positive feelings.

Collectible:
If you want to send me a maximum card, please keep it unwritten in an envelope and leave your message and address on a note. I will send a thank-you envelope back.

Private Swap:
I untick it as I received many rude messages. However, if you are a long-term postcard collector and want to have a regular exchange, please message me.
