A girl who lives in Malaysia (for those who doesn't know, it's between Thailand and Singapore)..people who know me will say that I'm a quiet girl,but once they get to know me, they know there's more to that!
Currently I am pursuing my masters education in Applied Linguistics at a local university here in Malaysia.
I live with my tabby cat Nemo, but now he is staying with my parents as I'm not allowed to have pets at my current house that I'm renting :(
I love to get to know new people, especially from out of Malaysia as I also love getting to know new cultures!
My main hobby has always been drawing..but I'm not that talented, as I would only know how to draw females, you can check my deviantart link to see how amateurish they are.
I can safely say I'm a nipponphile..I love anything that hails from Japan. One thing that I'm very fascinated with is Japanese street fashion, and I would fuse that in my drawings.
I also love reading..cannot go to bed without at least reading something. I read mostly non fiction books and I collect books about real crimes and autobiographies. Since I love drawing, naturally I love comics as well, I have a collection of comics & mangas at home, and I needed a new bookcase to fill in more books!
I also read novels but leaning more to Asian themed. My favourite author is Haruki Murakami. My favourite novel is the Wind up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami and my favourite non fiction book is In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.
I love photography ad taking pictures, but I prefer to take portraits instead of scenery. I don't own a DSLR yet, so I'm fiddling my dad's DSLR and pretending that it's mine lol
I have a very deep fascination towards anything and everything that hails from Japan.
I listen to japanese/korean music and love watching animes, reading mangas and buying japanese fashion magazines I know I can't read!!!
I love cute cute kawaii things, yet I'm also into something dark and gothic (i know, weird combo..).. I always want to be surrounded with cute cute things, therefore I love cute things, the more colourful the better!! Among kawaii brands I love : sentimental circus, rilakkuma, mamegoma,Kutsushita Nyanko, Nyan Nyan Nyanko,Nyanpuku.
I love bright sunny colours especially pink,purple,blue and yellow...my favourite colour combo are pink and black...
I also have a very deep interest with miniatures especially food and furniture miniatures like re-ment! I've been dying to buy them but most of the time I'm penniless lol
I hate hate hate cockroaches,worms,any creeepy crawlies that can crawl into my body, I just...ugh...and frogs (although I don't mind if it's in a cute cartoony version, just the real ones I hate)...
I am NOT INTO TWEEN STUFFS LIKE HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL,HANNAH MONTANA,ONE DIRECTION OR JUSTIN BIEBER.
Colour-wise I hate dull colours, earth colors like brown,grey or dull army green.
oh and please don't send me anything religion themed as I won't know what to do with them..
I have a yellow tabby named Nemo that live with me but is now staying with my parents while I'm away doing my masters.
My family LOVES CATS!! we have been known in the area as the house with a 'petting zoo' at one time cos we had like 16 cats, 10 chickens and an aquarium full of goldfish! but those days have passed as my parents are getting older, I don't want to trouble them.
I am not allowed to touch anything that have dogs or pig's element, like pig's skin or saliva, all due to religious beliefs.
I love to cook & bake for my family & friends..I see it as a form of self satisfaction to be able to feed people good food..but I'm no Julia Child or Nigella Lawson!
I have a sweet tooth, and my fridge is usually filled with sweets & chocolates..I love to try out sweets & chocolates from around the world!
I drink tea..a lot. I drink them all! when I joined swap bot, I was sooo happy to be able to taste different teas from other countries!
two things of concern if u want to send me food items : I don't consume alcohol & pork/gelatine due to my religion.
I don't have any allergies to any food items & not a picky eater as I love to taste new flavours!
I can't consume alcohol..however, products which contains small units of alcohol like in perfumes or cosmetics are alright for me to use..just not in my food/beverage.
I collect almost everything (which scared me cos I could be a potential hoarder!!) Here are some of them:
barbie dolls & clothes
I collect barbies as well as barbie clothes, basically for fashion/drawing inspiration. I collect only modern barbie doll clothes, not the ball gowns/princess gowns.
some of my wish lists :
to taste candies & chocolates from around the world!
a new pair of sneakers
a kitchen aid mixer
a DSLR camera
a complete collection of DVDs of ALL movies!!
to go to Japan!

I watched a lot of TV, a lot. Here are some of my fave tv shows :
I am a fully committed swapper and I will always send my swaps. If you have not receive my swap please PM me first and we will solve the matter. By saying this, yes, I hate flakers with a passion.
Let me know if you are going to be late in sending your swaps as I will definitely understand.
-Please wrap the items that are perishable properly (food, papers) as sometimes your stuff could be damaged due to the weather. (in Malaysia, we only have two kinds of weather : scorching hot or constant rain). Most of the time chocolates survived but there's an instance where one of my swap partners whose greeting cards got soaked from the rain during postage.
thank you and happy swapping!
