Direct Swap from Romania

As newbie in Postcrossing, it’s so amazing when I got my first direct swap. You know, digging in postcrossing data, search for people who say “yes” for direct swap, offer swap to them, wait for the card, and tadaaaa…

001 Raluca - Romania

Isn’t it beautiful? 😉

The message from Raluca is very nice. I like her handwriting so much. She must be a very kind person.

Enterpreneur Kid

What do you think when you see a little lady brings something to sell to her school?

vivi yoghurt

This pretty little lady is my daughter. She likes to bring a jar of froyo (frozen yoghurt) to school. These froyos are made by her aunty.

I never asked her to do so. She said, “I want to have my own money, Mommy.”  What can I say then? 😉


vivi yoghurt2

She sells froyos at IDR 1000 each and has to pay her aunty IDR 850. So, she will get IDR 150 for each froyo sold. If she brought twenty packs of froyo in jar, in a day she will have IDR 3000 as her earning. In fact, she always bring empty jar after her school time 🙂

Not much money, but she really likes her activity. I guess she already learnt something about it. To become a persistent enterpreneur, she has to persevere in selling her stuffs first. At least to her friends 😉

She’s so happy with this froyo ‘direct selling’. What can make me happy more than see my kid’s happiness?


Immortal Leaves


How can I forget such beautiful thing?

I found these immortal leaves in Tlogo Plantation, Wisata Agro Tlogo, a quiet and warm place in Kabupaten Semarang. If you passed Bawen Juction to Salatiga, you’ll find a left turn heading to this place.

It’s so unique, a smart idea to freeze leaves in floor, make a different plantation path enjoyed by visitors.

Postcard plus plus

Ahaa…this is the first time I received postcard plus something attached on it (postcard and the gift were in an envelope)


This card came from Husna (Yogyakarta). I like her second card very much, which showed traditional market of Indonesia.



This is it… a blink blink brooche, handmade by Husna herself. Thank you very much, Sista… Luv your gift, luv you too 🙂

Postcard from Giveaway



What a nice card… Black background with white on it, perfectly showed a second type of locomotive carried coal-filled freight cars to Emmhaven port, Teluk Bayar, Padang.


I got this postcard of Living Museum from Sawahlunto just because joining a give away held by Mas Ari, a non-Aceh people who loves Aceh sooooo much 🙂  You can find all of his post about Aceh here :


Meet Keraton Ratu Boko in the stamp. This keraton / palace formerly used for seclusion and focusing on the spiritual life. Located in Yogyakarta, built by a Buddist but has many Hindu’s touch on it. You can easily find about Keraton Ratu Boko here.
