Hi all! My name is Lina, and i live in Jakarta, Indonesia.
I joined swap-bot because i love receiving mails! My heart skips a beat when i see something pretty with my name on it in my mailbox! (Of course, this does not include official mails like bills or payment reminders).
I love to bake. A LOT.I run a blog about all my baking adventures at www.crustabakes.wordpress.com.
Before moving to Jakarta, I was in Singapore for a good 15 years. In fact i was in Singapore all through my educational life. I moved back to Jakarta about five years ago after I graduated.
It seems ironic, but i really like sad (Yay Adele!) songs, and maybe a little bit of R&B . Nothing too pop for me. I think i am too old for Justin Bieber. (Sorry!)
I guess i am just like the next girl out there. I love chick flicks. Having said that, i don't mind Harry Potter too! And maybe a little bit of Twilight :)
But no horror movies for me though. I wouldn't dare to shower/sleep alone for a month after that (No kidding !)
Like i said, No horror shows for me!
I know a lot of people think the "Kardashians" are a bunch of talentless people who don't deserve their fame. But watching their shows is a guilty pleasure for me (whoops!)
And although i don't make it a point to watch them, I do enjoy shows like "how i met your mother, america's next top model, GLEE,30 rock ... etc" when i happen to come across them while channel surfing :)
Some cute looking stationeries please? Post it-notes, memo pads, stickers, pens... would really make my drabby looking office desk look like a happier place :)
Also, anything with a dessert theme, like cupcakes, cakes, cookies ( Like i said, i love to bake!).
I love cute cartoon animals as well. Owls, deers, pigs, ducks, giraffes... well the list is endless! I would love them on any piece of stationery
I wouldn't mind a nice, light, small notebook that i can carry around in my bag too.
Also, if anyone from the UK is reading this, I have been hankering for postcards from Belle and Boo, as well as the Royal Mail postcards on the illustrated Winnie the Pooh (year 2010) and Roald Dahl! (2012) :) Jip and Janneke postcards are verrryyy welcomed as well!
I don't really understand the term "kawaii" yet. But i do like Rilakkuma quite well! :)
Hair accessories like elastic bands, hair bands and hair clips are wonderful too! I can never get too much of them as i am always misplacing them!
I love food flavoured/ scented products. Vanilla body lotions, cherry lip balms (sealed of course)... etc :)
I am still exploring out there to find out what i like. But for now, I am not so much into futuristic computer graphics.
I like vintage illustrated children book characters such as the works of Beatrix Potter and Martta Wendelin, and the illustrated version of Winnie the Pooh.
As for recent illustrators, I like Belle & Boo and the Jip and Janneke :)
For colour palette, i think i am more of a pastel person, although sometimes, bright colours appeal to me too.
So far, i always send out my items on time. So if you don't receive something from me, pls pls pls drop me a message first before leaving me a bad rating. I am sure we can work something out :) I would really appreciate that ! :)
