About Me

**I know mail can be wonky - I don't immediately rate my partners down unless they do not respond or make no effort to reach me. Likewise, I'm normally super prompt in sending out my swaps. And since most of the swaps are INTL, it can sometimes take between a week to over a month to reach you. So please reach out to me if you haven't received anything after a month of the swap end date. :) **

You can call me Elyn/Elyana, it doesn’t matter. My birthday month is June and I’m a Gemini.

Wow I think it's been about close to a decade since I went on a break from Swap-bot, but now I'm back! I'll take it slowly and will not overwhelm myself with too many big swaps.

I've also just restarted Postcrossing after so many years. My previous account has unfortunately been deleted, so my 200+ postcard record went back to 0 and I'm climbing back up again.

My favourite colours are pastel hues, purple, dark blue, black, silver and gold.

I like Disney Princesses (my fave is Belle), Lego movies, Marvel movies, etc, I also like beautiful quotes, glittery stuff, unicorns, owls, pandas and cats. My 3 year-old is absolutely loves Cinderella, Elsa and Snow White.

I love postcards! Touristy ones, animal ones, the ones with quotes, you name it. You may send me some blank ones so that I can send them for postcrossing too. I would appreciate birthday or neutral greeting cards as I can send them to my friends and family. If we are swapping blank postcards, I would prefer not to receive touristy ones. But if it’s a written/naked/stamped PC swap, by all means, feel free touristy ones. Notecards/letter paper for me to write simple notes to send in swaps would be great too.

Food-wise, I do not like Reese's, but I do love gummies, non-peanut butter chocolates, fruit flavoured candy, etc. I do not eat anything with alcohol or pork. It is against my religion. I would prefer receiving non-meat flavoured snacks please.

I also love fruit teas, open to trying floral teas but not a fan of green/jasmine tea. I DEFINITELY am open to hot chocolate though! Just nothing with alcohol please.

I used to collect stamps, but it's getting harder to collect the foreign ones as i hardly get international mail. Would be nice if you send me some too.

I do not appreciate religious/biblical themed items, or crafty bits and bobs like ribbons etc as I'm not a crafty person. I don't mind washi tape and stickers to decorate my envelopes though. :D

Favorite Music

From RnB to ska to pop to metal to hiphop to rock and roll to disco to reggae to techno.. you name it. Mainly i listen to pop, rnb, mainstream rock, hiphop. (whatever that's on the radio) I listen to almost anything, except gospel and maybe metal? No particular favourite. (:

However, I do notice myself going back to 'older' music from the early millenium (or earlier!), nothing too recent is on my spotify playlist.

Favorite Movies

I like comedies, marvel movies, Harry Potter series, chick flicks, asian horror and thrill. Pixar and Disney movies are awesome for the kid in me.

Not a fan of sci-fi movies though.

Favorite Television

Not so much of a TV person, but I'm catching on quite a fair bit thanks to Netflix. British crime series/movies are the bomb. I don't think I'll get over Broadchurch.

Favorite Crafts

I don't really fancy making crafts, but I love to see the creation of others especially in jewellery or greeting cards/postcards. I think it takes great talent.

Favorite Books

Apart from chick lit, I love reading stories that deal with grief. Like PS, I Love You by Cecelia Ahern, Johnny Angel by Danielle Steel, Good Grief by Lolly Winston.

Apart from those, I love reading stories with twists like Da Vinci Code. that was really good. Books by Cara Hunter, Harlan Coben are also worth such a read.

But I also absolutely loved reading series like Gossip Girl (can't help it.) and Harry Potter.

Also, since I became a mum, poetry by writers like Jessica Urlichs have been godsent.

Things i don't want and need

I don't make ATCs or any other sort of crafts (i bake from time to time only) so whatever ribbons and other crafty items like bits and pieces of random paper for scrapbooking are the things i don't look forward to receiving. although i don't mind receiving a handmade scrapbook from you. i just don't need the embellishments, ribbons, buttons, scraps, and whatnot.

Last but not least, I dislike clowns. Specially those evil-looking ones.

Candies i already have here

Twix, Snickers, Mars, Maltesers, Chupa Chups, Hershey's Cookies and Cream/Almond (just the basic flavours), MnMs, Smarties, KitKat, Skittles, Gobstoppers, Cadbury (but just the normal range, I'd like to try those like Cadbury with Brownie filling), Mentos, Milo
