About Me

I'm a blue/green haired Singaporean girl (still young enough to be called a girl, I hope?) who loves sewing, bullet journalling and all kinds of crafty projects. I'm quite new to snail mailing but have already exchanged a few letters as of now. You can find my pen pal Instagram account as letters.from.jing.

I loved getting happy mails in the letter box and getting to know my pen pals. When I was a student, my friends and I would often write letters to each other even though we see each other everyday in class. We don't actually send the letters though - we just pass it to each other in class! Hahahahaha, weird, I know.

Ok, I've gotta be honest there. The craft projects I do usually involve things that I can find at home (like magazines, printing my own pictures, and scrap fabrics, since I, you know, sew). Sometimes I just use a pen and paper, so I don't know what I can offer here on swap-bot, but I'll make sure to send what's required in the swaps! Even if it means I have to go and buy craft items (and hey, maybe it'll open the door to a whole new crafting world!).

I do have a YouTube channel (mostly sewing related videos but really, it's a mix of everything I do in life!) so if you have a YouTube channel too and are looking to collaborate, I'm open to it! Here's the link to my Youtube channel so you can take a look!

If you want a visual idea of what to send me, here are some YouTubers that are my aesthetic goals! I hope to one day be able to create things like them.

Please DO NOT send

Any perishable items like food and drinks because Singapore is a really hot and humid country, i'm pretty sure any perishable items wouldn't be edible by the time it reaches me.

Tea. I know people usually send tea but... I'm just really not a tea person! :P unless you REALLY want me to try a flavour! (I do love some Yuzu tea~)

Newspaper/magazine clippings. I have plenty of those.

CD/DVD or anything that requires a player - I do not own any player at home and my current computer doesn't support that too :(

USB Drives - I will not stick in into my computer for fear of getting virus.

Religious items - I am a Christian and have no intention of changing my faith. I hope you respect that :) it's an exception if you want to send something related to Christianity though!

Anything with a strong scent (perfume/cologne, cigarettes, etc)

No glitter please, I hate the cleanup as much as I love how they look.

Cosmetics.

Erasers.

Ephemera.

Favorite Television

I WATCH A LOT OF KOREAN/JAPANESE/CHINESE DRAMAS! So much that I won't want to list them down and bore you! But here are some genres that I LOVE.

Detective/Crime

Romance/Rom-Com

Fantasy

Sci-Fi

Time-Travel

and I super love Korean/Chinese variety shows too!!! My fave right now is Crime Scene (Korean) and Who's The Murderer (Chinese). They both actually have the same format - a murder scene for participants to solve - just one in Korean and the other in Chinese. I think you can tell by now I really like mysteries!

Favorite Books

Again, more detective novels! I also love the Harry Potter series, but it's been a while since I read them. Currently reading more Chinese novels in an attempt to improve my Mother Tongue - not sure if it's helping but wuxia novels are really really interesting!!

Favourite K-Pop

Ok, I'm adding this section because I recently took part in a K-Pop Swap!

Artists I listen to: Big Bang, Akdong Musician (omg I love love love the siblings), 2NE1, Got7, CNBlue, FT Island, SNSD, Black Pink

I also love to watch Korean dramas and variety shows (as you've already read above). Running man is love, Return of Superman is cute and Please Take Care of My Refrigerator is yum!

Things I like

I love pastel colors! Rose gold is really pretty too! Black and gold make a really nice combination.

Themes: unicorn, magical, fantasy, cactus, galaxy, floral, cute cartoon animals, Ghibli Studio, beach, FOOD, Japanese, Korean, Chinese

Minimalist style!

Favourite season: Spring/Summer! Lucky I'm born in Singapore :)

Comment: Thank you for sharing One of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus, Yu Jing! I'm sooo sorry it took me so long to rate you! I thought I had rated you when I got your delightful postcard. I love it! So I was so disappointed when I realized I never submitted my rating! But again, I loved your postcard! I'm envious of your artistic skill. I'll have to see about reading this book, maybe in the next Contemporaryathon? :-) Thank you so much for sharing! :-) <3

Comment: Wow! I love this spread, I can’t wait to use it! I have a mail tracker but I use that mostly for penpals, this is so cool! And the envelope is beautiful! Thank you so much!
Response: Awesome!!! I was afraid you wouldn't find the spread useful hahaha (and I didn't make the envelope - someone sent something in that but it was too beautiful not to reuse hehe)

Response: I'm glad you like what I picked! Have fun using them!! :D I haven't received your package yet, will rate once I get it. Thank you!!!

Comment: Hi thanks for neat envelopes!! That is funny that I was your partner. I haven't solved it yet. I started reading it and it was late. So, I had to put it away and come back to it. I still love the idea of it and will definitely solve it someday.
Response: Yup it was a nice sweet surprise when I saw your name and address hehe!

Comment: This Pocket Letter is... AMAZING! Yesterday I found the time to open the case and it was sooooo cool to go through all the evidence. You put so much efford in all the details - I am absolutely amazed! I was sitting in the garden with a notebook, writing down facts, drawing time-lines, decrypting codes. I had so much fun! I have not solved the case, yet. And I already destroyed one of the secret messages.... :D I will redo what I destroy because I will send this PL to a new detective. I can`t let it sit in a folder - it has to challenge others! I can`t praise your work enough. You created something really interesting with lots of lovely (or disturbing...) details. SO COOL! :D
Response: Omg I am so glad you are loving it!! Feel free to contact me if you need help with recreating any clues hehehe

Comment: I have to tell you that I really enjoyed your answers to these questions. I really found the story of your last name FASCINATING and it was cool to learn something new about Singapore. I didn't know about the car thing. OH WOW... I'd never be able to afford a car!

Sorry for commenting here, but you keep ignoring my messages, although you were online, and this comment might be useful for other swappers (and those who are hosting swaps and wants to avoid non-raters).

You forgot to rate a swap I completed. I contacted you multiple times. Please read the messages I sent and rate. Thanks!
