Meetup Report

Arrived at the Singapore Philatelic Museum on time at 2pm.. to our surprise, the backyard has already been set up by postcrossers who have reached earlier! Thank you all so much!

We took the first half hour to cut and paste our meetup stickers, and then started signing away the postcards. 27 of us, we only took 1 hour! During signing, we peeped at the postcards that each other brought along, and chatted with one another. We also passed around a camera and took snapshots of everyone.

Time for a group photo! The weather was kind to us, and we had a great group photo!

Thank you all for making this happen!

Please Read:

  1. Due to space constraint, priority will be given to those who have attended past meetings as we have had a high dropout rate.

  2. Please u2u me to RSVP if you are a new postcrosser.

  3. Travelling Postcrossers from overseas, u2u me!

  4. For meetup card REQUESTS, you can post here and see if any Singaporean postcrossers reply. No promises though.
    New Singaporean postcrossers, pls do not request for meetup cards. They are supplied when you attend the meeting.



For EVERYONE to read!


  1. You have to arrive on time, as we will set up the place together and sign the cards at the same time.

  2. For Singaporeans/PR, please bring your pink/blue IC for free entry. Otherwise a $6 entrance fee to the museum applies.

  3. Meetup cards: 10 pc A6 280 g/m² Recycled Matte cards and 20 pcs of Meetup Stickers for $5.00 (no coins please!).

  4. You can also bring extra cards to be signed, limited to max. 10 more per postcrosser. No more than this, please.

  5. Bring a piece of paper to identify yourself at the table.

  6. Bring a pen to sign & a rubber band/big clip with your name to bundle up the stack of cards; bring a scissors to cut the stickers.

  7. be prepared to sign a lot of cards;

  8. bring some special postcards (and only postcards - 3D, nice maxicards, postcards that smells like fruits, etc) to share with us;

  9. prepare the addresses and stamps in advance if you want to send them; the postmark at the museum costs $0.50 (or $1?) for donation.

  10. be friendly (I'm sure some of us are introverts but this is the one and only day of the year to socialise with other postcrossers in Singapore)
