About Me

My name is Cheryl and I work in coffee. I'm what someone may describe as an introverted extrovert. I love my alone-time, but I don't get much of it between work and an (oddly) active social life. Right now, Swap-Bot is where I go to let out my creativity, and I'm having a really great time here.

I'm fairly new to Swap Bot, having only been here for a couple of months. Generally, I'm an easy going swapper. I love washi swaps, flip books and decorated envies, and I try to make them more often but my schedule has been insane lately!

5 favourite foods

  1. Cherry flavoured things
  2. Peppermint hot chocolate
  3. Pastries (I even like them on washi)
  4. Gummy candies in all it's textures
  5. Banana and banana flavoured things

5 foods I don't like

  1. Instant coffee
  2. Liquorice
  3. Ginger candies
  4. Most flavoured coffees*
  5. Mayonnaise
  • the only exception is perhaps a sneaky yearly peppermint mocha from Starbucks around Christmas-time.

10 favourite books

  1. Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
  2. A Day at elBulli by Albert Adrià and Juli Soler
  3. A Life in Frocks by Kelly Doust
  4. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
  5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
  6. The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
  7. South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami
  8. Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffinegger
  9. The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice
  10. The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Outgoing 。◕ ‿ ◕。

I wish I'd bothered to take a photo of the first few swaps I made! Until I bother to start an Instagram profile or blog, here's what I'm working on mailing out right now:

These were probably from May - June 2017.

I think I made this around the same time as well.

This would have been made in June 2017 too.

I've been trying new things lately. This is one of my latest swaps from October 2017.

Regarding the post

I'm really into making sure the swaps I mail out look cute. I don't like rushing swaps, and if work piles up, which it tends to unexpectedly, I will likely be a wee bit late in mailing out my swaps. But, I promise I'll never mail out an ugly swap or ignore you.

I will be mailing my swaps via Post Malaysia's international air mail. It does take some time but more often than not will arrive at it's destination (eventually). Often, it takes a month or so. Sometimes a little longer because of customs in various countries. Mainly the United States.

Please be patient with mail coming out of this end of the world, but do let me know if a package fails to reach you and I will replace it.

Response: Oh yay! I'm so seriously glad because I was so worried it'd get lost in the mail. Also, it didn't occur to me at all that I made a dashboard folder!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely stickers!
Comment: Thank you for this envelope and all the lovely things you have chosen. I was a bit irritated as you put a note for Rori in my envelope 😉
Response: Oh no! I'm so sorry. I had a bit of trouble having a huge bunch of mail returned and might have repackaged everything in a bit of a panic. Everything I sent was more or less the same, though, as I wanted to share a few of the things I was really into that month with everyone in the swap. I'm still really happy you liked it and I'm really sorry for the mix up.
