There are instances when mail may be lost or delayed, from my experience letters/packages arrive within 2-3 weeks from the day I sent it out. If the time has elapsed please do message me and I will resend.

Although I know I should keep track of swaps, I have great faith in the postal system so I am really saddened and disappointed when things don't go as planned.

I will ALWAYS send the swap items before the swap date and few instances where I send on the actual day itself, please do inform if the item has not yet arrived and I will definitely resend.

Thank you~

About Me

Currently residing in Singapore. I work as an engineer but in my spare time I love to read, practice calligraphy or handlettering. I am quite active in Instagram and Pinterest (just look for heyjayel).

When I have more time for myself I like to make my own art journals, sew and learn crochet. I am learning how to take nice photos as well.

I am also interested in Japanese and Korean pop culture. I am currently studying Korean at my own pace by watching variety shows.

Beside I absolutely love your blog, you seem to be a very kind person (: I really admire your motto (I don't know if I'm using the word right because, again, my english sucks xD)

Haruki Murakami is my ultimate favorite writer ! What is your favorite book of him ? Mine is Kafka on the shore (: I also like Banana Yoshimoto. I have three books on my shelf that haven't read yet but the one I read was very good (:

Anyway, I wish you the best (: CinnamonMiaw

adk on Jul 21, 2011:

hello there... this is the read my profile write a comment. Seems as though you are a very nice person, willing to give your time to help someone... thats so nice because there isnt many ppl who would do that for someone let alone anyone. I especially like the paragraph in the about me section that begins with ~"i've lived in deserts"~ it's what i would consider poetry.. I like the way each section is labeled.. pretty funny. Anywho, it was nice reading about you, what you like/dislike. Happy swapping to ya. =)

Read my profile and write a comment Hello, your profile is very interesting. :) You are the first person I came across who are from Singapore. My favourite part of your profile is your description. You sound like the person who's really kind and helpful and the greatest kind of friend someone could have. :) I am so happy to read that you are so close to your friends. My friends are quite different from that type. :S I saw there are many likes that are mine too. ::D: Like postcards, stationary, beaches, recipes.. :D Do you like to cook then ? I really like your profile. You are a bit new here, so here's a "Welcome" to you (even though its been for a while now ). ~Ribbons~ All Text
