I am...

I'm a simple girl, with simple mind. I consider myself as a happy and optimistic person, I also love to share my happy thoughts with others, and I tend to keep the negative feelings to myself. I'm a shy person, I dont usually start a conversation with others. I always carry a smile on my face. I'm constantly looking for ways to improve myself, physically or mentally. It's just like sharks, you'll sink when you stop swimming.

I used to be a mad scientist who worked VERY long hours in lab studying tiny bacteria. I was working on bacterial genetics, not really cutting-edge science haha. I enjoyed my work alot, but later I realised that I need a time-off from this busy life, and learn to cherish my family and the lives around me. So now, I'm just doing some freelance teaching, writing up my thesis, and thinking who I want to be and what I want to do from now on.

I am a resposible swapper and I try to send out my mail before the deadline. I will click the "sent" button once the package is out of my hand (i.e. in the post box or in post office) but I cannot control the date they collet the mail and send it to the main post outlet in another area, so dont be surprise if the post mark is one or two days late.

If I cant make it for the deadline, I ALWAYS inform my partners first becoz I dont want to give them a bad impression. Likewise, if you r late in sending your mail, or you havent receive my mail, or you dont like what I sent, pls communicate with me before you rate. I've seen many scary comments in other swappers' profiles, and that's the last thing I want to see in mine. I think SB is a great place to make friends and have fun, let's not turn it into a living hell ;-)

I love to receive...

I enjoy...

♥ Growing bacteria (that's my job in the lab);

♥ Reading (I read anything and everything, except romance & politics);

♥ Cooking (it's like doing experiment in the kitchen and the best thing is you get to eat the end-product);

♥ Watching movies (DVD or big screen cinema);

♥ Hiking (only when it's not too hot) or just taking a walk;

♥ Photography (I'm saving money for a digital SLR);

♥ Collect stuff (e.g. postcards, magnets, keychains, earrings, starbucks tumblers, tote bags and reusable shopping bags etc);

♥ Tea-drinking (Earl Grey and fruit-flavoured black tea are my favourite, but I enjoy trying different types of tea that I get from swaps);

♥ Road trips & travel (I get seasick very easily so I only travel by land and by air);

♥ Postcrossing (it's amazing that I get to see the whole world thru the PCs I received).

I will bite if I see...

⇒ Craft material (I dont do any craft so there is no use for me to receive those craft material);

⇒ Handmade postcards & multiview postcards (prefer store-bought single view cards or non touristy cards);

⇒ Anything that will spoil or melt under high temperature (the weather in Malaysia can be very very hot at times);

⇒ Soft pink (I only like hot pink and deep pink, unless you mean the colour of lipgloss haha) & all shades of green;

⇒ Chai tea (or any other tea with spice), rooibos tea, white tea and any hibiscus-based tea; loose tea (which might be spoilt by the hot & humid climate here); English Breakfast tea or any plain black tea;

⇒ Things for children (I dont know what to do with them!!);

⇒ Hello Kitty & Barbie & any "girlie" stuff (those are a little off-limit for my taste, but I'm ok with other kawaii things);

⇒ Things with polka dots design (unless the dots are in multicolour and/or in different sizes);

⇒ Dotee dolls (I got nightmares after receiving a dotee doll in one of the swaps, scary!!).

Now I'm craving for...

♪ Any cute and fun McDonald's merchandise e.g. the cell phone straps with different McD food;

♪ Sugar-free mints (the stronger, the better hehe);

♪ Fashion scarves (I got addicted to wearing these lately haha);

♪ Any Starbucks' merchandise esp. their drinks;

♪ Suggestions on cool apps or useful tips for iPad2;

♪ A trendy and yet protective pouch for my iPad2 (I actually prefer something handmade for this coz I love things with personality);

♪ Relaxing nature CDs (with nature sounds like the ocean or rain or rainforest etc) or anything you think it is good for meditation - compilation CDs are welcomed;

♪ Sudoku book (I'm going to finish this book so wanting another one hehe);

♪ Anything featuring cute owls and penguins;

♪ Keychains with Lego figurine.

Recently I...

...am having too much fun with my iPad2 haha ;-D

...permed my hair - it's super curly now ;-D

...learnt that not all scars show, and not all wounds heal.

...stocked up supplies of Starbucks' VIA coffee - YES they are finally available in Malaysia now!!

...am still recovering from a bad relationship - gosh it takes forever to forget about the pain :-(

...started to believe that there is no way we can sugar-coat our lives.

...added these postcards on my bedroom wall....

Comment: I am sorry to have to rate you a 1. Last we spoke (15 Nov) I said I was happy to wait a bit longer for your postcard (sent on 31 Oct) since it was coming from Malaysia, and you offered to re-send if it hadn't arrived by the end of November. I contacted you last week because I still hadn't seen it and to take you up on your re-send offer, but I have not heard back from you. It seems you are currently away from Swap-bot and haven't been able to read my message. If this is an honest mistake, please consider this 1 a "placeholder" until you have time to re-send the swap. I will be happy to re-rate if I ever get anything.

Comment: I'm sorry :/ I never recieved this swap from you. I also messaged you twice (Nov. 17th and Nov. 27th) and never recieved a reply for either. I understand that sometimes personal issues may interfere with swapping and if that is the case than I am really sorry. If I hear back from you, I will gladly re-rate.

Comment: The weirdest thing I can think of is trying to dress or undress while behind the wheel. The most difficult was taking off pantyhose. That almost caused me to wreck the car!

Unfortunately I still have not received it :(

Itti on Nov 15, 2011:

Hiya. I haven't received your postcard for the "Wow! You made my day" swap yet. You marked it sent on 31 October - I was just wondering if you knew how long things normally take? I don't receive much mail from Malaysia so I don't know what to expect.

LisaLisa3 on Aug 22, 2011:

Thanks for the great postcard in the 3 P's postcard tag. : )

petitpaindepice on Aug 17, 2011:

Hi ! I just saw your profile again and I wanted to tell you that I have the Food Straps from Mcdonalds (the Big Mac one and the Mc Cafe one) if you're interested in a private swap, just let me know !

weeatcrayons on Aug 10, 2011:

The last PM I have received from you is when I tagged you for the ribbon and that was in december as well. I have not received pms for you over the past few months as you have been saying. That was the first pm I have received from you since December

id0be1ieve on Jul 12, 2011:

Yaaay..thank you for the fab gift wrapping supplies for the 'Thrift store tag!' game! :-)

Snoskimouse on Jul 6, 2011:

I'm so pleased you liked the tag package! Especially pleased that the NHM photos made you smile :D I can't believe you've been three times and still haven't seen all of it!! I spent almost 1.5 hours in the huge room full of gems/minerals/meteorites x3 It really is an awesome museum..

Batmamma on Jun 23, 2011:

Got the WTA pc today from the NYUP-group, my boys expected it to be for them as their grandparents are in Malaysia at the moment :D Thank you very much :)
