About Me

Hey You, Hello Youuu,

My name is Jan and I hail from a little island (though not literally) called Singapore where it either rain or shine.

I am an avid planner enthusiast, recently I got my first midori... excited to "plan" with it, I enjoy paper crafts (though I am not a fan of knitting... yet), writing letters, doodles, Wreck this Journal activities, adult colouring books, wrapping gifts (I don't know about you but I feel wrapping gifts is therapeutic... lol!), the latest craft.. pocket letters and I would love to have a penpal, like a genuiene one not like a I'm-gonna-write-to-you-once-or-twice-and-bye-kind-but-you-wrote-to-me-to-be-a-penpal. I don't get those :/

I am a big fan of music. I appreciate awesome live music. I love live concerts. Haha! Some of my favourite ones are Green Day (ohmygosh Billy Joe was sooo good), Bruno Mars, Jason Mraz, Avenged Sevenfold, Demi Lovato. And I even attended a Metallica Concert once all myself.. independent woman yaw! Haha! Some of my favourite musians are McFly (grew up literally with them when they got popular in the early 2000s), A1 (yes I still do have a thing for them), Westlife (You can never go wrong with their music), The Donnas, Heart, Paloma Faith.

My favourite colour is ORANGE! Yes, I got my room painted in bright orange and recently I found an-all-orange bed sheet for my white day bed... I love it! My second favourite colour has gotta be electric blue. If you must know, I am not a fan of pinks, but I feel that we do need to have a little bit of pinks in our lives... True enough. I am a fan of spectrum of the rainbows and tie-dye!

I collect vintage watches, the kind with the leather strap... They are so pretty and classy-looking... I love it. There is something about the different shades of browns of leathers that I love. I collect paper / coin currencies, crafts ephemera, washi tapes, airmail tags and touristy country magnets and touristy postcards (written). I am starting to get into miniature-little-planting-garden... I find them so adorable. I have a growing mini rose plant, apparently it will take four to six months to bloom and I just got a sweet basil mini plant.. excited to try it! (260515)

During my spare time, I enjoy watching factual documentaries over dramas. I love-love watching River Monsters and I find Jeremy Wade to be good-looking. Ghost Adventures, Crime Documentaries, Ancient Histories are my favourite kind. The one documentary that always makes me smile is Meet the Natives. Its one of those interesting filming concept and I love it, its a reminder for me to always be grateful for what I have. I dare you to watch it winks Also currently I am into The Walking Dead, 2 Broke Girls, Orange is the New Black, American Horror Story, How to get away with Murder... and oh I binge watch Breaking Bad from Season 1 to the end of the season in one week... I am craaay! Haha!

I am definitely looking forward to more positive swaps here. And yes I have encountered bad swaps before (some here and some even on YouTube). Do not hesitate to leave me a message if you are in doubt. And if you feel like its taking too long for my item to reach you, do let me know first before rating me a one / three. I would gladly send you another package (:



Hello, this is me with my short hair that I just decided to chop off early this year. I've been having long hair (since forever) well not that long but pass my shoulders, pass my back kind... you know what I mean? Ahhh.. I kinda miss it but wooo I feel so "light-headed".. If you know what I mean.

Often we don't get to see who we sent our goodies to, so a selfie wouldn't hurt will it? Haha! Don't worry I ain't no selfie queen! Haha! For me, I would definitely love to see who I am sending goodies to or at least interacting (:

Likes Likes Likes / Wishlist

I personally would not like to have this column to be called a "wishlist" but I feel like this column actually do help me when I plan little goody surprises.. so here goes mine:

▲ Anything ORANGY-FIED. As you know my favourite colour is orange. Colourful would also be awesome too or tie-dyed.. yessss!

▲ Stickers... be it planner or pretty stickers, decorative tapes, label stickers.. I love them all but I am not a teacher so I don't think reward stickers would be helpful for me.

▲ Anything Sea Turtle related. They are my favourite kind of animal, so carefree and so independent. Ultimately I love sea creature more than I love land ones... Penguins,

▲ Anything book related... I am a book worm nerd. Unique-one-of-a-kind bookmarks!

▲ Chocolates / snacks. I would love to try the other kind of chocolate varieties from your side of the world. I love my chocolate with nuts / crisps but not fruits. I would definitely love to try some yummy hot chocolate from around the world (:

▲ Touristy / Quirky-One-Of-A-Kind Postcards. I appreciate written PCs, I mean do write something about yourself or the weather you know... or a quote is a good reminder too.

▲ Washi tape samples. I have some pretty ones in my collection and it will be pretty awesome if we could send some to each other, you know. Sample it... and in return another reason to get more for myself. Haha!

▲ Paper / Coin Currency. I am starting a small collection of currencies, it would be awesome to exchange some too.

▲ Touristy magnets. Or something that symbolises your country

▲ Pretty Stationery. Pens, Pencils, Coloured Pens, Shaped Paper Clips... you know the bits and bobs.

Like Less / Dislike

Things that I like-less, dislike, not a fan of:

▼ I am not a fan of furry animal friends like kittens. Don't get me wrong, they are adorable but I am just scared of them.... I would freak!

▼ Nail Polish. I don't use them.

▼ Glitters. I am more a an all-browns-leather-kinda-girl. Haha!

▼ Emphemera and scrapbook materials

▼ Fruit-flavoured stuff. I am not a fan of fruits in granola bars, chocolates, fruits in teas etc. I feel like it is too weird to mix it up.

▼ Flakkers. If you plan to flake, then be prepared to get flakked. Also I do not appreciate unfriendly people. Tsk!

Hi. Well spotted. I'm coming to Singapore on 25th October. We'll spend 3 nights there before moving on to Thailand and Vietnam. Do you have any recommendations? Is it easy to find vegetarian food there? I'm so excited to visit your country <3
