Comment: Hi Jan, I received your letter and I wanted to thank you very much for the very good advices you sent and also for the extra sticker sheets ! I enjoyed this swap a lot and hope to swap with you again.
Comment: Thanks so much for your email! I wear glasses and contacts scare me, too! Any time something goes near my eye, I feel like I have to close it! I don't know how people put them in every day lol
Comment: Thank you very much for the resending, your swap is full of beautiful things, I loved everything. I am very sorry about the delay in the rating, I have spent months out of the system due to a health condition, just today I am reinstated and I am solving outstanding swap. Thank you very much for your dedication.
Comment: Thank you for the 2 memo sheets, 3 cute animal stickers, airmail stickers (I love them) and panda bear die cut. It is always interesting to swap with someone from Singapore too. I liked the way you decorated the envelope with pen polka dots, or is it watercolor polka dots? By the way, why did you put a $1.30 stamp on the envelope?
Comment: Received your resend today. It amazes me how fast the mail can be, I donâ€™t know whether to give swaps a month or four months to arrive. Thank you for the wonderful resend and everything in it.
Comment: Thank you for this sweet package of goodies. This is exactly the kind of envie I love to receive.I love all the items you have chosen for me. The cute stickers are my most favorite. Thank you for hosting this swap ðŸ’™ðŸ’œðŸ’›
Response: Yay! I am glad you love it and it arrived before the year ends! You have a love-lovely New Year (:
Comment: Hello Jan, thanks for sharing,i really enjoyed it! I finished season 2 of Stranger Things a week ago and i can't wait for 3rd :) I also loved the quote of Eleanor Roosevelt! So true! Have a great weekend!
Comment: Thank you for sharing your playlist with me! There were a lot of fun songs and good songs to dance to so it was probably my favorite that I received in this swap. I especially love Lady Gaga song and Homemade Dynamite which I had on my list too. Sooo good.
Response: Yay! I am glad that you enjoy the playlist (: Then in that case, we both have goooood taste in music! hehe! Thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Received your second package. Thank you, I liked the items you sent!
Response: Thanks for the information but it would be nice if you contact me directly first via Private Message so that I am able to do a re-send if you are not satisfied with the swap requirement. I have never been late on swaps and I take note of the requirements and I would prefer to not let a low rating to affect my profile. Kindly look out for a private PM from me. Thanks!
27/8: Update. I have personally PM and has already sent the items via registered mail. Thanks for updating my rating. 19/9: Update. She receives the package (:
Comment: Thank you for this lovely envelope of goodies. It definately was some happy mail. Your envelope was very pretty from the outside, too. Even though it was torn apart during the transit. Both for that. ðŸ’• For you.
Response: Thank you for the heart and taking your time to rate (:
Comment: Hello Jan! I realllyyyyyy lovee your package. The stickers & the die cuts are my fav! Seriously this is your first time sending to Indonesia? And how's your trip to Bali? Is it great? Anyway thank you so much for the lovely swap :)
Response: Yes, my first time sending to Indonesia! Haha! Bali was an experience! You know what, let me just leave a comment on your page (: Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the nice tapes sent. I liked the way you displayed the washi on the envelope. The envelope arrived intact, It was ripped on one side after I opened it. I loved the way you folded the note enclosed. Yes, there are swappers who enclose a note, not scribble on the envelope, or have a nice business card. Nice, but not friendly.
Response: Thank you for the comment. I am friendly though, that comment was odd but to each, their opinion. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for your informative letter, I'm a little familiar with the LGBTQ life in Singapore, on a prouder scale, but it was interesting to read a 1st hand story. I hope this comment is ok to write here but I hope you can shout out your love one day, loud and proud! We are here for each other and love is love, hugs from Finland :)
Comment: I just got your package in the mail. Thanks so much! I am excited to open them for Christmas. :)
December 25: I opened your presents today. Thank you so much! Everything is so cute and I can't wait to use them! :)
Comment: OH my God loved the way you dressed my envelope. I was soooo excited when I seen it wish you could see my face. Love the pocket letter which is sooo decorative, and pleasing. Also, love the little extras added. Thanks for making my swap JOYFUL! Have a great holiday, and so glad you were my swap partner for this swap.
Response: Thanks for making me smile with your lovely comment (:
Comment: Oh my stars, what a wonderful happy thing you've sent me! I've never seen a stamp as big as the one on this envelope, it's huge! I love it. And you know, before now I have never had a pocket letter before. What a magical little thing! I love the tape, and I'm pretty jealous of your list of concerts. Thank you so much, this really made my day!
Response: why... you MADE my day! I am happy that you love them all. Thanks for the heart... Oh and you should try making a pocket letter, its FUN!

Comment: How great that you were able to find a postcard of your city! I live in Atlanta, one of the bigger cities in the USA, so it is quite easy for me to find something! I am in a great mood, today, and I hope you are too!
Comment: Hi :) Thank you sooo much for the wonderful parcel! :) I loved everything so much! The cards , keychain, magnet, pen, bubbles, stickers and postcards are so cute! The chocolates are so yummy :) I can't wait to try the hot chocolate <3 Much love <3 -Vaishnavi xoxo

Comment: Terima kasih banyak, thank you SO much for all the wonderful stuffs! ðŸ’– I love each and every single item but especially the stickers, postcard and washi tape samples â™¥ðŸ’• I'm actually surprise to receive a mail in a transparent plastic although I've heard of people sending in vellum envelope. Quite interesting to see variety stuffs inside ;) The stamps are wonderful as well. Glad I got you as my partner :)
Response: Sama sama! I am glad you LOVE everything. Yes, I gotta agree, its fun to change up the envelope once in a while (:
Comment: Thank you so much for your New Year's gift which arrived today -- you were right about the post! I'm delighted with everything -- the pretty notebook is already in my handbag, the Wonder Woman cards are super and the socks are great fun! And I love the wee pandas.
Response: I am glad you love-love it! Thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Thank you Jan for for the cute little sticky notes you included as an extra in the envie swap. I love how you covered your envie. The colors look great together! Sorry for being late with my rating. I have become so forgetful these days. I do apologize and I hope you have a wonderful day!
Response: That's okay, I am glad you love the enve. Thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Thanks for a lovely postcard and for telling me the story! I heard about the Merlion in one of my favorite videogames (Animal Crossing) and I loved it, so I'm really happy with this PC. I hope that the rain washed away the smoke :( Thank you!
Response: It actually did! Haha! I'm glad you love it! Thanks for the heart (;
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely planner goodies. I love them all, but he shiny, shaped paperclips and adorable washi samples are my favourites! :) Did you make the envelopes yourself? Cool, I recently got a personal size planner, so I can use them in my new planner, which gives me a bit more space for decoration. Btw, you 've got such a beautiful handwriting,you should design some word stamps! :) Thanks again, have a great, happy and creative 2016. :)
Response: I am glad you love-love. Please make sure you use it to the fullest (: And thank you, I bet you have beautifully handwriting too! Hope you have a happy happy merry Christmas and an awesome new year!
Comment: Hi, Jan! I received your letter yesterday and it made me very happy :D Congratulations on your (country's) golden Jubilee! It seemed like an awesome party >__< I'll write to you soon, with the answers to your questions. But first, explain me how do these balloons work? I've never seen anything like this before and I don't want to ruin them while trying :P
Response: I am glad that it finally arrived to your side. Thanks for the heart, let me leave you a comment on your page on how to use them (:
Comment: Your Traveling Letter is here.All I have to do is to write my part and to send it forward,when time comes.I hope you get many people writing on your letter!Hope we meet again in other swaps.Big (orange) kiss ! :)
Response: Thank you for your positivity. My previous 3 partners were all flakkers!!! That's the most annoying thing ever. But thank you, thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Hey Jan! I received your wonderful parcel today! I love how you packaged everything!! Thankyou so much for everything! The pocket letter is great (the first one I own!), and all the gifts are wonderful too...I'm going to enjoy using them :) it was great to swap with you and I hope you'll enjoy the parcel I sent you too! Thankyou! Xx
Response: I enjoy our little package exchange. Thank you for everything (:
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful package. The treats were tasty, the little panda snack bites were good, I was happy to see a panda playing badminton on the snack....too cute! I really enjoyed learning about Singapore and the magnet from your country is beautiful. Thanks again for the wonderful swap!
Response: Glad that you love it. Thanks for the heart (:
Comment: What a beautiful collections of pins! I've always wanted to visit more of Singapore than just Changi Airport (where I've done more than my fair share of layovers) but this just makes me want to visit even more! Thanks for sharing =)
Response: Yes you should! You"ll love the many varieties of food here (: Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely pocket letter! It really made my day. You have some creative ideas for your pockets. It will be in my July happy mail video on my Youtube channel if you'd like to check it out! http://tinyurl.com/shawshasyoutube
Response: Yay! I am glad that it has finally reached you! Naww... I am still learning and squeezing the creative juices from my brain for the pocket letter! I would love to see it! Thanks for the heart (:
Comment: When I first saw the postcard, I was like"What's the sticker doing there?" and scratched it away. And then I started laughing and couldn't stop for a while :) And only then I turned the pc over and read your note, LOL! I think the pc is hilarious, but at the same time it is pretty offensive that these movies are still made and are in great demand. Anyway, thanks for sharing.
Response: Haha! You made me laugh! Hahaha! Yeah it was a little too much, and I don't wanna freak the postman out; sending such PCs. Hahaha! Thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Thanks! It was nice that you put the songs in your blog. I had fun listening to them. At least two of my partners had chosen the song "Hey there, Delilah" for the song with a female name in the title. :)
Response: Ahhh that song must have been very common. Yeah I thought it was easier clicked-on for my partners. Thanks for the heart (:
Comment: When your pl arrives, I already know I am going to love it, but as I mentioned in my response to your rating, I am rating in advance since I will be travelling soon and may not get a chance to see it until I get back. Something to look forward to!! Thank you in advance! Blessings, SJ :)
Response: WHAAAAAT!! Why did you rate me without receiving the item first? You are too nice Mdm Susan! I hope it will reach you asap. Thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Thank you for the envelope Jan. Sadly the little pen broke into 20 pieces before arriving and the stationery set suffered from the loss, but the stickers and Nelson Mandela postcard (which I LOVE and the reason for the heart!) made it safely. I hope you have a wonderful day!
Response: Whattttt.. I am so sorry that the pen was broken into little pieces and the poor stationery set :( Look out in your pm, let me know if I can send you "a replacement" to make it up to you! But thank you for the heart.
Comment: I enjoyed your letter so much! My mother is from Singapore (small world, huh?) so I actually know EXACTLY what most of the things you explained were. I LOVE milo. I will write back soon! Thank you!
Response: Sayyyyy WHAAAAAT!! It is a small-small-small world afterall! Your mother is a Chinese/Malay/Indian/Eurasian? This is interesting! Looking forward to hearing from you too (:
Comment: Goodness Gracious Miss Jan! :D How do I start to talk about how much I love your pocket letter?!?! This is gonna be long. Are you supposed to do that in the ratings section? Oh well, what do I know; I'm a newbie! :) Anywhooo . . . First I open my mailbox - Yay I got a swap!! Ooooo it's in a business envelope and it's squishy; that means it's a pocket letter!! Where's it from? Where's it from? Singapore. Singapore!!! Hey Marissa, it's from Singapore!! Marissa: Singapore? Me: Singapore!! Marissa: Woah, Cool Mom! So I open it: colorful, happy bright colors - Then I see it. . . My favorite Ronald Dahl quote from the favorite author of all three of my girls when they were little. It would have made me cry at any time but right now, it was even more special than usual because in one month, I will have a completely empty nest. Bittersweet, but all is well. I was so anxious to read your letter and note about your country, but with some effort, I made myself wait until my husband got home from work, so I could show him at the same time. This is now officially the longest comment I have ever left on ratings, but I felt conditions warranted this, the full extent of my jibber jabber. Though I haven't done many yet, international swaps are my favorite so far. These are the times it would be ok to be rich; so I could put mountains of postage on everything and not give it a second thought! Reality being what it is, I have to limit myself here somewhat. Having said that, I would love to do a private swap with you, if you wish. Thanks again Jan, loved it all! :)
Response: Hello Susan!! Your oh-so-long-comment made my day (: Your family sound like lovely people! Really! No joke! I am glad that my little pocket letter made you happy... though I must say its one of the first few ones that I have done.. I am new with the idea of pocket-letters too. Heeh! I would be delighted to do a private swap with you! Check out your inbox (:
Comment: Thank you for your amazing postcard! I love the design and that it shows 7 different sights of your country :) The merlion seems interesting and I actually looked it up on the internet. I love it when a postcard interests me enough to makes me look up places or sights to learn more about them :) Really LOVED your card!
Response: I am glad that you LOVE it! Thank you for the heart! I appreciate that you took the time to research it. If you are keen, we can do a private swap (:
Comment: Thank you for the decorated quote Janna. Actually, it was more of a motto to live by don't you think. I loved it and have it placed on my nightstand to remind me how to begin each day. Thanks!
Response: That is true Wenders, Thank you and thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely package of Singaporean goodies! I really enjoyed reading your letter and trying out the sweets & snacks I have no way of trying here in Finland! Durian candies were very interesting indeed. At first I felt like spitting out the candy but then I got used to the smell&taste - and now I have eaten them all! Hehe! They were great and so were the Haw Flakes as well! I loved the strawberry panda cookies and the magnet! Thank you again! :) P.S. I love the idea of this swap!
Response: Yayyy! I am glad that you love the goodies! And yes thank you for supporting the swap! There's another one closing on 1st May... make sure you don't miss it (: And thank you for the heart <3
Comment: I'm so impressed with your packaging, I feel so slack now! Thanks for the cool items. My daughter said the pop corn "tasted like gas smells" and I laughed so hard because I read your love it or hate it comment. :) thanks!!!
Response: Gas smells? Haha! That's funny! I am glad you like the package I sent. And thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Thanks so much! Got your card today. Hmmm ... my suggestion would be to def. go with the career you feel happier doing. It sounds like you might be happier teaching preschool, but of course only you know that for sure. Good luck!
Response: Thank you for replying to my little frustration. I have been thinking about it... and I have decided to resign from my current 9-5. Maybe take a break for a while and start job hunting (:
Comment: Thank you for the postard, that was a fast arrival for such long travel! You were right on every point, we have mayonnaise that comes in what looks like toothpaste tubes in Sweden :D they are very practical actually. And yes, I did manage to find Wally after a while!
Response: Haha! That is interesting. I have heard of it but never really seen mayo in a toothpaste tube before. Haha! Thank you for the heart (:
Comment: Hello Jan! Thank you for the lovely note, PC and and weekly schedule post-it notes! I love food too, but I'm so picky, I am afraid I could never eat outside of my country (when I went to Paris, I ate Italian food only!). Thank you for making me smile and for making my mailbox happy. I hope you are having an amazing day!
Response: I am glad that you love the goodies! Ahh that's okay.. thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Thank you Jan for a beautiful pocket letter. I am in love with the tree paperclip, washi samples and the tiny giraffe stickers. :) And i love that it is not the 9 pocket protector, its different. :) Plus i wanted to try at some point the rainbow color scheme myself, so i really like it.
Response: Yayy! I am glad that it finally reaches your side of the world! Haha... you are a sweetheart, you actually like the tree paperclip above all? That is cute! I am glad you like it! Thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Thank you for your long and lovely comment. Yes, I do actually write quite long letters and have done so for more than 40 years now. I've also met several of my pen friends in person. I've written with people all over the world, including Asia. I have pals in Japan and China, though my Chinese pal now lives in the USA. You yourself are very chatty. You should get into letter writing. It's a great way to "meet" people you might never know otherwise. â™¥
Response: That sounds interesting! I would definitely try it out (: And thanks for the heart (:
Comment: Thanks sooooo much for the package!! You really made me happy with all the goodies!!! :D I love the pens, the lipbalm, the keychain, the SNACKS <3 and basically everything you sent! :D Thanks again! I hope my package will find you soon as well!
Response: I am glad you love them all! Thank you for this little exchange andddddd see you in Instagram (:
Comment: Thanks Jan for the great package! I love everything you put in there. I will try 1 snack each day. Today I had the Almond Toffee. It was very good. Tomorrow I may try the cookies. Love this swap!
Response: Hello there! I am glad that you enjoy the little goodies that I sent! Be sure to join the fourth one, sign up ends this Sunday, 5th April. We have added a new item for exchange (:
Comment: Thanks for the profile comment! It's fun to get to know other folks here; it amazes me how different cultures can be. Such as you are not allowed to own guns where you live, but owning and shooting guns is commonplace here. :)
Response: Yeah it amazes me too! Very interesting! Well you have a good day.. and thanks for the heart (:
Comment: What a super nice swap! My daughter is officially in love with you for all the loom bands. She's currently in her room working on making turtles. The sesame stuff was fun to try, I am sporting my big necklace right now and getting ready to snuggle in with my tea. Everything was very fun! I really loved this package :) Thank you
Response: Yay! I am glad that she loves it.. I knew she would. And woah, that sounds like you are really having a nice time over there! Haha! I had fun picking out the goodies to send to you.. and thanks for the heart (:
Comment: So many unique things! Thank you very much for your generosity. My favorites are the Lily of the Valley post card (one of my favorite flowers) the washi tapes, the metallic stud robots and the nice air mail labels. You did such a nice swap with so much variety - worthy of many hearts!
Response: Yay! I am glad that you like all the goodies! I hope you'll make full use of them. My apologies if the package came in late.. so sorry!
Your package was amazing. Thank you so much for the wonderful tea spoon - you really made my day :)), and thanks also for the beautiful magnet, candies, postcard and touristy catalogue from Gardens by the Bay. It looks amazing place. You deserve more than one heart. :) Have a nice days.
Response: Yay! I am glad that you love the goodies! I knew that you were going to really like the teaspoon! Thank you for hosting this fun swap (:
Comment: Singapore looks beautiful! I have always heard about the multicultural population of Singapore, and it's interesting to see how well the different cultures work together. Curry Puffs sound so good, I'm tempted to try to make them myself. Thank you for sharing!
Response: Curry Puffs are really goooood! If you happen to drop by here in SG, leave me an email, I will be your food tour guide! Haha!
Comment: Thank you so much for the goodies!! I love the lip balm and the postcards are also so awesome!! and the bracelets omg you have been so thoughtful!! I am not such a big fan of the candies though haha, but my bf likes them ^^
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! â™¥â™¥
Response: YAYYY! I'm glad that the goodies have arrived to your side of the world (: Looking forward for the PCs to be "featured" on your blog. Haha! And thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you Jan! I absolutely loved everything you sent me. You really made my mailbox - and me- very happy! As for durian candy - well it's interesting. Thanks again - be well and happy!
Response: Yay! I'm glad that all of the mail had arrived to your side of the world! I know the durian candy is not for everyone... personally, i don't like it myself just thought that I would send something from here to you. Ahh well... Have a great day Karen :D And thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hello Jannified (Janna from Singapore) :D I got your parcel today!! I love your handwriting and every is packaged in a carefully way. Thank you so much for: Milo chocolate nuggets, 3 prawn flavored snacks, dried cured plum, 3 black & white sesame treats, 3 plum haw flakes, fancy gems little cookies (we have some similar at Portugal, but never tried before), 2 oat & choco snacks, white coffee, Lipton ice tea and a energise bar. I definitely had a good singaporean experience! Cheers from Portugal, maria das trouxas
Response: I hope you'll enjoy the goodies. I enjoyed shopping for them for you! Definitely one of my favourite swaps on swap-bot! I love it!
Comment: I love it! Especially old songs and covers made as oldies :D "Hanging tree" & "Elastic heart" from Hunger Games' movies <3
And Adam Levine making suprises and Bruno Mars jumping to funky beat.
I'll say it again: I love it! :)
Response: Hi^5 my friend. We have the same taste in music. Haha!
Comment: Thanks for the ice cream card :) Most of the food in Singapore can be found here too ;) But, there's no bubur ayam in our KFC. Last Friday, I bought bubur ayam from Texas Chicken because I was recovering from a bad fever and flu. I love porridge but it's rather hard to find anywhere >.< Have a happy 2015!~
Response: Whaaaaat no bubur ayam in your KFC? Unfair! Haha! I guess its best if its home cooked (:
Comment: Hi Jan, Thank you for the interesting currency, bank note and description of life in Thailand.
I was in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Bali and Singapore in 2008. SIngapore was my favorite place. Yes, i enjoyed tuk-tuk travel, Thai stone massage, and boat ride on Victoria River. I will always rememberTthailand as the say, "Land of Smile."
Response: Aww thank you! It is nice to know that you have been to my country (: Bless your soul!
Comment: I enjoyed reading your answers! Thanks for recommending the Jason Mraz song, I love him but I've never heard this song- I'm listening to it right now and it is very good! Also, I don't eat meat, but your honey chili wings sound delicious- I'm hungry now!!! YUM!
Response: Aww... You actually went ahead and give it a listen.... YAY! That song is a great-pick-me-up and I bet it helped everyone through hard times. Oh I'm sorry! Okay okay I'm sure you have already made yourself and the boy something scrumptious! Haha! Have a good day! It's bright and sunny Saturday morning where I'm from (:
Comment: oh you mail the besst cards many thanks again heart 4 you
please let me know id you get duplicates - local Houston Tx is hard to find PC finally found some at Walmart and in a turist area for shopping in Spring TX happy holidays to you also
Response: I'm glad that the goods have arrived to your side. Yes I gotta agree, sometimes it feels like the art of our local country's postcard is dying.. isn't it? It's so hard to find... haha! So whenever I see them, I would just go ahead and get it!!
Comment: Hi Jan! I love love love your PC! it's so pretty! I already loved Wreck this journal! and was thinking about to buy this book or not! You made me to want to buy it so much now!! thank you thank you!!
