Hi! I'm Charmaine you can also call me Charm. I'm originally from the Philippines but I am currently living in Singapore. I'm fairly new in the world of swapping and I'm loving it so far.. I really enjoy reading through my partner's profile and gathering stuff to send out ♥
I'm a Pluviophile. There's something about the rain that warms me up inside. I love the cuddle weather.
I like the color Blue, Blue Green, Seafoam and Teal.. They're very cool in the eyes and they remind me of the sea and the calmness of the beach.
I love to travel but I have never been anywhere outside Southeast Asia yet; We would love to be able to go one of these days. It would be nice if you could send me something to describe where you are so I could live vicariously through your stories... :-)
I like food.. well, who doesn't? I am an adventurous eater and I like trying out new things.. When I travel, I learn more about the culture of the place I'm in through their food, each country has a distinct taste and I love to see how they prepare and eat. We also create relationships while sharing a meal. :-)
I don't like cats. I just don't like them, I'm Ailurophobic.. they scare me and I just freak out.. I'm sorry for all the cat lovers out there.. It's not them, it's me... It's a sickness.
Looking forward to hear from you! Happy mailing!
My most favorite book of all time is The Little Prince. I love everything about it! I love his relationship with his Rose.. I like how he tamed the fox. I like all the lessons he learned from all the planets he visited. "What is essential is invisible to the eye."
I'm also a Potterhead! :D
I also like Tuesdays with Morrie and 5 people you meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
I also like the Alchemist
I like listening to old love songs.. Lyrics from 60's to 90's music are the best!
I'm a 90's Kid so I love all things 90's, Early 2000's and all things Retro
I also like listening to LANY, Lauv and 1975 while driving and I belt out to Pop songs by Taylor Swift, Adele and Beyonce in the shower..;p
I'm an architect by profession but what I really love doing is to Paint. I like using watercolor but I also work with Acrylic. I like to do Urban Sketching and Food Sketching. I also do brush pen calligraphy and bullet journaling. I am always at my best self when I am creating something. :)
I keep a TN journal where I use what I get from the swaps and my pen pals.. I keep all the letters I get in it and I love decorating my pages based on the theme I get from my partners.
Foliage, Succulents & Cactuses
Cats, The color Purple, Anime, Games, Sci-fi
Not that I wouldn't appreciate it, I just don't prefer them as much as I do the others.. :-)
What I wouldn't appreciate is if you send me torn up and unusable Junk. :(
I try to use all the ephemera I receive from my partner's swaps as I don't want my stationery to go to waste by just keeping them. I use them to decorate my journal and also to make my other swaps look pretty.
I would really appreciate to receive these items from swaps..
Washi Stickers - i love the transparency effect they have.. it's so cute to use for journaling
Stamps - I like collecting stamps.. please stick some stamps on your mail for me, I would be so glad :)
Stickers in General. ofcourse except the kiddie cartoons, Dora, Anime kinds..
Washi Tapes - can't get enough.
Tickets - used or even faux tickets.. I love tickets
Newspaper clippings - Just want to know what's happening in your part of the world
Instax or any small sized Photos - Don't worry I'm not a creepy stalker.. I just would love to include your photos in my journal.. to know the face from whom I got the mail from. Photos of you, your pets (except cats),your favorite food, photo of you doing what you love doing, favorite places, or just about your favorite anything.. It's so touching to receive something so personal.
Sketches, Drawings, Paintings - just like photos.. personal art are very special. Sign them please.. :-)
Tourist Postcards - I would like to start a collection of postcards from all over the world.
Hand painted Postcards - as I have said, I love personalized stuff.. :-)
I always check my partner's profile to see their preferences and I try to include stuff that you like in my swaps. however I don't have a very wide range or stationery collection so I may not be able to send out very unique and very quirky wishes.. but I will try my best.. A happy partner makes me happy as well. :-)
Please also take note that I am from Singapore and it may take a while for my mail to get to you specially if you're from the US or Europe.. it may take a month or so.. but if 2 months have passed and you still have not received anything, I'm so sorry to say that it may have been lost in happy mail heaven.. Please let me know and I will send you a new one. ;-)
