About Me

Hullo! My name is Michelle and I come from the sunny island of Singapore. I am mummy to three lovely fur babies who light up my world.

Singapore Post

I've noticed that my packages (particularly big boxes) have extremely varying degrees of transit times! I reckon it's because sometimes the package just gets tossed into the snail mail pile, even though I've stuck an airmail sticker on it. That would explain why sometimes you receive something from me in a week, and others in two months. I appreciate your patience, really, but if you encounter any issues, please do send me a message so that I can track it down! I've started to send mail registered, particularly for big boxes. :)

About Swapping

I fulfill every swap I participate in. If a package due from me is lost in transit, please let me know and I will gladly re-send another. Please do give me the opportunity to rectify the situation before rating a 3 or 1.

If you feel my package hasn't met swap requirements for some reason or other, or if you think it's "borderline" 5, please also let me know. I hate it when my partners don't like what they've received, or if I've read a profile wrong and I'm always happy to make up for it!

That said, it's always (VERY) useful if you have a working Etsy favorites list or an updated Wishpot because that way, I can easily see the style you like and not get your profile wrong.

I've stopped participating in tags / games on forums as I've found it's difficult for me to keep track of the items I need to send i.e. I forget about tags. If I owe you a tag, I am so so sorry but please please remind me and feel free to bug me daily! I will definitely send it! I'm just a bit forgetful! =\

Also, please know that in Singapore, the mail doesn't get picked up or postmarked on Saturdays or Sundays. I also try my best to drop off my packages way before the deadline but if I only manage a Friday afternoon drop, the package may not get postmarked until Monday.

I will re-swap items I receive if it's not quite my style, but will suit someone else better. I will not, however, re-swap handmade items. I will re-use packaging if it is still in good condition.

My Wishlist

  • HUGE WANT: Lekue DECOMAX! http://www.lekue.es/en/decomax-3403200
  • Tokidoki Tokyo Be@rbrick 2 (LA)
  • Hannari Tofu plush ice-cream strawberry pink (http://www.from-japan-with-love.com/hannari-tofu-plush-ice-cream-strawberry-pink.html)
  • Laura Ashley flat paper file folders
  • Mamegoma plushie (white)
  • Little Twin Stars Kiki & Lala plushie (with stars on their backs)
  • Hannari Tofu letterset
  • Anything from my Etsy faves!

Anything from this list automatically receives hearts!

Rather not / Please don't send

  • Pet peeves: Folded memos; stickers snipped off at the edges
  • Lip balm / gloss (I have more than enough and I don't really use them either!)
  • Skulls
  • Items that smell of smoke... My nose reacts negatively towards it...
  • Foodstuff --- It's really hot and humid in Singapore and a lot of the food I receive comes melted or just gooey
  • Halloween related items (I dislike Halloween)
  • Anything to do with ghosts, ghouls or creepy crawleys
  • Licorice
  • Letter sets
  • Clowns (with painted faces)
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Socks (or gloves, or scarves) --- It is way too hot in Singapore for socks, I'm always in open-toed shoes or flip flops! =)
  • Nuts
  • Batik
  • Yarn (I'm fussy :P)
  • Cheesy cartoony fabrics
  • Western cartoon characters e.g. Disney, Diddl, Bratz, Lisa Frank, Pooh, SpongeBob, Looney Tunes
  • "Kawaii" sticker flakes with real animals or people
  • Scrapbooking stuff (unless that's what the swap is about, because I have too much!)
  • Handmade kawaii memos printed on a home printer :P
  • Fake Sanrio or Hello Kitty items

If in doubt, don't send it. =) I've received several fake Hello Kitty items, despite this listing in my profile... Giving partners the benefit of doubt, I tell myself they mean well but really... I would rather just receive something non-Hello Kitty, than something fake.

Thank you. =)

Hi! I put your Woodland package in post today. :) The postman said it might take 3 weeks to get there, so we must be patient. :/ I hope it arrives to you soon!
