From Mariza in the Netherlands!
She have sent me so much goodies!

What did she sent me?(:

Serviettes with desserts prints!

Some papers with  Netherland Cartoons prints. This cartoon seems to be really popular in the Netherlands but I have never heard or seen it before until Mariza sent it to me. Does anyone has any ideas of what cartoon is this?(:

A roll of deco tape.

More serviettes!

Tea and postcards and flags!

These two weeks,I've also received so many BEAUTIFUL

From my new pen pal,Maria of Poland!

From postcrossing!

From Postcrossing!
I am so glad to receive so many desserts and sweets postcards as I really love them!
Actually, on my postcrossing profile, I've listed that I <3love desserts postcard thus I'm getting so many of them! YIPPEE!

Next, it's a postcard swap with Laura in Canada!
Laura was really nice and awesome, I commented on her blog that I love the postcards she sent and she told me that she could send me any postcard I like! Thus, we did a swap! I hope you like the postcards I've sent you,Laura! And I love the ones you have sent me! Grazie mille!

I heart this one the most but I'm bias to postcard with book covers on it!
I'm indeed a bookworm, *sigh*...

And stickers!!!<3

I always tell myself how fortunate I am to always receive such lovely letters ,goodies and postcards  from friends all over the world. Think of how many miles these letters have come from! I'm really touched by how strangers trust one another and just after an email to exchange addresses, they pick up their pens, put the stamps on the envelope and then the letters go for a plane ride to the letter box of someone whom you have never met, someone whom you have never talk to... but someone you randomly trusted (: teehee!

Anyways, if anyone is interested in a postcard swap, feel free to contact me via email or leave a comment below! I've got some postcards to swap!
China pandas, some random cartoons, singapore ones, animes and some other random ones!


Alrighty! Now, allow me to ramble about my life!
 Recently, I was so depressed about MATH! Grr..! I always feel like a failure after a math test or solving some math questions (I salute to those who created all these insanely difficult questions, or perhaps it's actually not difficult. Maybe it's just me b'cos I am a math idiot.)
What do you guys do when you are sad and depressed?
For me, I need my bolster, my tears, my bed and a tub of Ben & Jerry's to rejuvenate and restore my energy level so I could carry on with my life.
But now I'm feeling a lot better already so don't worry (:

Oh and I've also bought a book from Ebay! It's actually a lot cheaper on Ebay as it is second-hand. It was my first time getting something from Ebay (yes, first time! Teehee!). It's actually about $6.00 cheaper than a brand new one which I think is quite reasonable. The book quality isn't too bad actually, just some folds and the edges of the book was coming off. But I used scotch tape to tape the edges and used a plastic wrap to wrap the book and now TADAH~ it's like a brand new one!
So now...this means that I can buy more books next time at a cheaper price!

Oh and if you guys love books, you can visit Marian's blog! She does reviews of books everytime she finish reading one (: I'm pondering whether if I should get "Something Borrowed" after looking at Marian's review. Have anyone read that book before?

I know people, you must be wondering where's the Outgoing letters in this post! Here is it!
Sorry I did not take photos of the individual letters I've sent because I am super duper busy with schoolwork :( I'll try and do it in the next post! Sorry!

Singapore's 47th birthday is coming! It's on the 9th of August so I'm sending out these flags to some of my lovely pen pals! I love all the flags they have sent me as well!
Talking about birthday...mine is coming. Another year older wiser.

Here are the photos of the Culture Fiesta Night organised in my school last friday!
Singapore is actually a multi-racial country, with 4 main races living here. Chinese, Malay, Tamil and Eurasians. Actually, there are so many more people of different races living here other than the 4 main ones. Thus, this is the night to celebrate the multi-racial culture we have here in Singapore!
Everyone got to dress up in different ethnic costumes and guess what? The whole school danced together as one! It was an A-MAZING experience!

I wore my Baju Kurung which is a Malay ethnic costume (I'm the second girl from the left) and here are some of my lovely friends!

Okay guys, I'll do another post ASAP when I can!

Here's hoping you guys will get a really filled letter box by the end of this week ( with letters of course and not bills! Teehee! )
Take Care!


  1. Hi Gladys! I had a feeling that the English poetry postcard would be your favourite... I think I'm psychic! :)

    I very much liked the postcards you sent (your writing is boo-tiful by the way), especially the Tintin one, which is hanging on my postcard wall at the moment. Love it! Thanks again for the postcard swap, it was fun!

    1. Hi Laura! Yeah I do think you have psychic abilities! Cause' I really love the poetry postcard! Thank you! And thank you for your compliments! I had so much fun doing the swap as well~ ~ ~

  2. Hi Gladys!

    The cartoon I've sent you is called: Diddl. You also have Diddlina. :)

    1. Hi Mariza!

      Is diddl and diddlina really popular in Netherlands?(; I have never seen the cartoon before!

  3. It was very popular in The Netherlands a few years ago! Diddl comes from Germany. ;)

  4. Indeed it does :)
    It's more like a cute Hello Kitty/Sanrio stuff.

    1. Oh okay thank you! I actually haven't seen them before!

  5. I adore your snail mail! And your handwriting is so beautiful. Thank you again for a lovely postcard with a view of Singapore - I love it! And of course I'm very happy my postcard has arrived safely to you. It's an amazing idea to send flags in a snail mail in the occasion of Singapore's birthday.
