Jan 22: I have recently been rated a one for a swap that hasn't reached my partner. The way we tried to solve it didn't end up nicely and it turned me off from swapping. I was planning to quit from swap-bot due to the incident but decided not to. I love swapping and I am not going to let one incident make me quit doing what I love. I am not a flaker and I take my swaps seriously. I don't mind if swaps' hosts drop me out of their swaps due to my rating. I deserved a one as my partner still hasn't received the parcel but I had shown all proofs that I did send it and as shown on my Flickr, the items were especially bought according to her likes and requests. I even included a birthday present. I still believe the parcel will arrive some day cuz I don't believe in lost mails and it was sent in December which is the busiest season in the mail industry.
I usually go above and beyond the swap requirements but due to this incident, I may use the extras for registering the parcel instead if the swap is of a high value. I am trying to have fun here and not to make dramas!
An expat living in Tokyo, Japan. Been moving countries since I was 13yo and now I am 27, married. Had lived in Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, South Korea and now Japan. Moving from down-under to up north =) No plan on moving anymore, just too tired. But if the circumstances allowed, would like to move back to Australia!
One of the reasons I joined swap-bot was to fulfill my cravings. Craving for Cheez-it so badly! The first time I had them was when I was about 8yo. Then I moved to a country with no store selling them. Found them at S.Korea Costco 13 years later and somehow they stopped selling them. So yes I have been craving for it for quite a long time :X Thanks to swap-bot, I finally got to eat Cheez-it again! =D
I love to receive mails cuz it feels like Christmas is not only in December! I also love to shop things for people, the fun of going shopping and buying new stuff! My husband and I work in the food industry so I think I am better in picking food than say craft items as I am not a crafty :)
Mar 27: I'll be moving house in mid-April so my wishlist will be super small cuz I don't need many things atm! My swapbot address will still be the same cuz it's my work address.
This is also my shopping list so I edit it often.
I apologize if my list is too specific. I live in a tiny Japanese cubical apartment and there is not much space to put things around. If you can't find anything to send from my list, feel free to send something else as long as it is useful and not junk :)
When my first swap arrived, both me and my husband were so excited and I love to see him opening the package like a kid (he doesn't really get gifts from his family during his childhood, so something for him would be great too!) When I did my first swap shopping, my husband actually joined me and recommended some stuff. I think deep inside he wants to join swap-bot too haha!
Update: Guess I was right about the hubby wanting to swap! He finally asked me to find a partner for him to swap with. He wants to do the shopping and I'm guessing he wants to get his own package with HIS name on it lol! He doesn't speak English so I will be his "assistant" in translating, packing, writing memos, shipping etc. He is a very nice guy (otherwise I wouldn't marry him lol) and he has a good sense of fashion and stuff so your swap will be in good hands ;)
If you are from the Europe and would like to do food swaps, I will partner you with him! That is if you don't mind :) He would like to try popular food/snacks/chocolates from your country. He loves Loacker wafers! Adding non-food items to surprise him would be great too!
Something other than food that he may like :)
Not necessarily expensive items, he would be really happy just to receive a package from overseas (like I always do lately haha). He is really picky about food but not so about non-food items ;)
We like sweet and savory chips, crackers, cookies, any kind of chocolates etc but not really into candies. I think the only candy we eat is ramune candy, google it! In general, we hardly eat candy. We don't hate it though! Especially if they are yummy and not too sweet, we would love to try!
Hillsong, instrumental, classical music. Big no to jazz, no offence but I get headache whenever I listen to jazz and I don't know why!
Action, comedy movies, TV series like Revenge, The Lying Game etc. My all-time fav is Prison Break! Reality shows like Hell's Kitchen, America's Next Top Model etc. My all-time fav movie is Home Alone 1 and 2. Had the videos when I was a kid. I've watched over 100x and I still love it! I just love any movies with kids. I get touched easily by them, I can cry easily because of them, weird lol.
