A lil' about me...

Independent and dreamy individual who likes building castles in the air. I live practically on wet wipes and zip-log bags. I know I should be considering more eco-friendly alternatives. I give piano lessons from home and indulge in my creative pursuits during leisure. I am happily living with my partner of 9 yrs with no intention of having any kids. Have no trouble whipping delectable dishes and gratefully oblige fulfilling the occasional birthday cake orders from time to time.

I am really happy to be part of swap-bot. ;)


Switched At Birth, Game of Thrones, Criminal Minds, True Blood, Cougar Town, Bones, Law & Order, Grimm, Two and a Half Men, Desperate Housewives, The Office, Outsourced, Royal Pains, CSI, Entourage, National Geographic, Crime & Investigation, Animax, Border Security, Project Runway, Food Channels, Korean, Japanese & Hong Kong dramas, Variety shows, Game shows etc..


I watch tons of Movies! Basically I say no to really cheesy chick flicks and tacky, overboard romantic films. Am into other genres like the following: action, adventure, fantasy, mystery, sci-fi, animation, history, especially Psychological thriller & horror. Give me a terrific horror movie anytime! :D

For My Swap Partners...

I check my letter box on weekdays (Mon - Fri).

After appreciating the swaps I received, I rate them on the same day.

I VALUE the responsibility of sending & rating promptly very seriously.

I do international swaps, pls allow min. 3 - 4 weeks for my swaps to reach you.

If I have not rate you after a reasonable time has lapsed, that means I have not receive your swap.

I prefer not to chase for in-coming swaps as it's DULY the responsibility of ALL senders to ensure their partners receive their swaps.

I am more than happy to resolve matters amicably if delays are genuine. Parcels, letters, postcards could be lost during mail transitions and we need to learn to live with such glitches don't we... =)

I mail ALL my swaps via Airmail. I mail most (except naked postcards...) Type 2 & 3 as Registered Articles for tracking purposes & proof of postage. I also take photos of all my swaps before mailing them out.

I have swap parcels returned to me labelled Unclaimed! Truly a waste of precious time & resources! I have taken the effort to send by registered mail. Kindly do your little bit by collecting from your postoffice if the postal guy came knocking, you happened not to be in and was left a note to do so. Thank you so much!

If you are mailing your swaps via Surface Mail to me... it would be nice if you let me know so that I may then expect a longer delivery time-frame and not think your swap got lost in transition.

Communication is the KEY. It always baffles me why some swappers choose not to reply to their E-mails/PMs. Else they take much much much longer to respond when obviously they have been online and read their messages. Simply take 2 minutes or less of your time to respond... and most matters get resolved real quickly. Thank you!

I treat people with respect and courtesy. Appreciate the same from you too. :D

I mail out ALL my swaps! l'll make sure I have time before joining any swaps. :)

For other Mail, RAKs & Tags: If you were to send me happy mail (not swaps!) & I have not thank you on your Comments Wall (after a reasonable time has passed...), that would only mean that I never got them at all. I am always grateful & will definitely drop a thank you note acknowledging any mail received. =D

Comment: This is definitely the best swap I've ever received. I loved the envelope, the use of deco tape, the stamps. I very carefully opened it and when I looked inside it was like christmas, everything was handwrapped and had my name on it! I completely lit up and couldn't believe I got such a nice swap. I thought the card looked really professional and it took me a minute to see that the images were stuck on like stickers because it all looked printed on. Such a great card and then the STICKERS!! I love love love love love the Alice in Wonderland stickers you sent. I've never seen any like those and they are by far my favorite stickers I've ever seen. Thank you so much!!

Comment: I loved your dotee. It looks so professional. It makes what I can do like preschooler art. Your package deserves more than one heart. You do so much. I can't tell you how much your little gifts brighten my spirit. You really know how to spoil a person. I love every special touch you take. I wish I could be just like you but I am not. You are so special.
Response: ´*•.¸(*•.¸ Yea! So glad that you are happy with it! Thanks for the great ratings too. I had a blast putting it together for you and really enjoyed doing the stamped theme. It's my joy to bring you happiness too. You surely deserved it tops because my hands just do accordingly to what my heart feels after reading your profile... :) Hope to meet you again in our swaps! :D ¸.•*´)¸.•*´
Comment: Sometimes you receive a swap that completely blows you away. This swap was AMAZING! The word amazing doesn't even adequately describe the box the postman brought me. In addition to a gorgeous purple button ornament resplendent with silver sequins, beads, and a bit of purple fur trim; I also received delicious (and exotic)rum flavored Japanese chocolate, two rolls of adorable washi tape, a box of Chai tea, and a giant rock candy stick!! Every piece was beautifully and carefully wrapped and tagged with personalized tags. This is easily the best swap I have ever received and I have received some gorgeous swaps! Thank you do much Dew! Happy Christmas! Oh, did I mention the outside of the package was covered with postage stamps from Singapore? Not a flat rate sticker from the post but actual beautiful, colorful, gorgeous postage stamps! An amazing receive! I am a very lucky and thankful swap-botter! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Response: •●✹✱★ Thanks for the wonderful compliments! It's my pleasure making the swap for you! I am really delighted that you enjoyed your swap! I was nervous at 1st that the ball was not adorned with the usual red, white, green holiday colors. But decided to go with my gut and had it done in your favorite deep purple/dark blue colors and made it bling bling festive... Thank you so much for your great rating & heart. Hope to meet you again in another swap soon! Take care! Happy Happy Holidays!!! :D ★✱✹●•
