I'll send you a postcard!

okay, it's official. I will NOT be able to attend BlogHer2007 because I will be in Malaysia. I will NOT be able to attend the Chicago Bloggers Meet-up because i will be in Switzerland.

Geeez! I am away for one month. ONE month. And it's within this one month that these two events occur.

okay okay okay yes that's a lot of hot air from me, since I know I'd have serious uncertainties about coming out from behind this blog and actually MEETING people [I don't do well in "live" situations in general, with strangers even worse!! and I do want to keep some sort of anonymity/facelessness here...], but you know what, having the OPTION of attending taken away is why I'm being ornery :p

... but here's some good news to come out of this tragedy: Any readers want to receive a postcard from Malaysia and/or Switzerland? Yes, a physical snail-mail postcard with exotic foreign stamps and an impersonal message for all postcarriers to read and laugh at before stuffing it into your inbox. Anyone? Hurry, before I change my mind!

Here are the rules / conditions:
  • Email me [azlynne1972 at gmail dot com] your name & postal address. Do NOT leave the information in the comments for the whole WWW to see and abuse! By all means leave me a comment saying you've emailed me, that would be fine :-)
  • Email subject line needs to contain "POSTCARD REQUEST"
  • Please specify if you want a postcard from Malaysia, or Switzerland, or both.
  • "closing date": Requests should be received by 8th August 2007 19th August 2007 [yes, that's in a month's time! I may extend this if the load isn't too bad...]
  • I will endeavor to fulfill all requests by 27th August 2007.
  • I pledge that I will not abuse the information provided: your name and address will be used only for the purposes of this postcard effort - no record will be kept, and the email will be deleted by 31st August 2007.
  • NOTE: if this effort gets too tiring or expensive, I will give priority to whose who requested only one postcard. Also, I reserve the right to desert this effort if I feel like it: if that happens, I'll email ya an apology from Switzerland/Malaysia instead of the postcard, k?
  • What I ask in return: Once you receive your postcard, please devote a line or two on your blog to it/me, with a link to . If you get two postcards, you link to me in two separate posts. Sound fair?

Allllll righty then! Let's get those requests rolling in!

POSTED @ 2pm 8th July 2007. "Stickified" until 8th August 2007. I'll refer to this post by an image in the sidebar.

  1. I'll take postcards from both of these exotic locations!

    It's the least you can do since you'll be off cavorting in Switzerland instead of having pizza with me! :-)

  2. Hope to see you in Kuala Kangsar. Maybe we can share laksa together.

    Write to me and we've a date, but I got to take along my dear wife along. Couldn't leave her all alone, could I?

  3. Waaa... must be a great feeling to be back in Malaysia :-)

  4. Azman> hmmm, didn't you read that bit about remaining anonymous/faceless? I'm only offering postcards, not dates! But thanks anyway.

    :fir"> eh.. I can take it or leave it. I'll look forward to some nasi lemak, teh tarik, and maybe meeting up with some friends though.

  5. Aww :( I wish you could come to the meet-up! I am thinking it will be a lot of fun!


Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?
