About Me

I am from Singapore, and I love doing swaps :) I 'quit' Swap-bot a while back, but am looking to get back into some swapping for now.

I usually send out swaps within the first few days after partners are assigned. So, if a package doesn't arrive (be it a formal swap or a one-to-one), let me know!

Please do not send chewing gum as it is not allowed in Singapore.

I love Care Bears. I also adore characters from the Winnie The Pooh series, especially Eeyore.

I enjoy reading in my free time - books and magazines alike. I especially like genres such as science-fiction, thrillers and mysteries. Romance isn't really my type. Some of my favorite magazines include Self, Vogue, Look, Glamour, Allure, Bazaar, Shape, etc. I am into home decor as well, so I love to read up on magazines of that genre for some inspiration. I enjoy magazines on healthy living and fitness as well.

I also collect Sharpies in assorted colours. Can't get them over here in Singapore! I especially like the mini-sharpies that you can hang on your keychains.

I love funky jewellery, like huge statement rings or chunky bangles/bracelets.

Favourite colours are black, white, kelly green, orange, and hot pink.

I collect Russian nesting dolls (I think that is what you call them. They are dolls within dolls).

Andy Warhol's one of my favourite designers.

I love trying out new perfumes. So I'd love a perfume sample, if possible! I love trial-sized toiletries as well.

I'm also interested in learning foreign languages.

I can play the piano, so if you have a favorite song, it'd be great if you would like to share me the sheet music :)

Ankle no-show or sports socks in funky bright bold colors (brand new, of course!) are one of the nicest things to receive in a package :)

I love paper goods! Such as journals, notebooks, notecards, stationery, etc. Paperchase is one of my favorite stores to check out for these sort of items.

I love Bath & Body Works and Lush!

In short, I love receiving mail, especially if they contain unexpected surprises :)

Favorite Food

I love tea. My favorites are fruity teas, but I'm always looking forward to trying new flavors! I do still love coffee and chocolate-y drinks though :) Especially and definitely Starbucks! I do not enjoy drinks with cinnamon and cider.

I'm a great fan of chocolate. The darker the chocolate, the better it is ;)

I do not eat licorice and marzipan.

I love:
- Reese's peanut butter miniature cups
- Tootsie Rolls
- Hitschler Schnure

Favorite Crafts

I collect pouches in all sorts of shapes, colors and designs. They range from zippered to kisslock to buttoned, both handmade to commercially-purchased.
I often source around for pieces of unique fabric to sew into these pouches - they are great for storing all sort of stuff! I like getting fabric and trims in unique prints.

I bake a lot - mostly cakes, muffins, and cookies. I like going shopping for baking-related items, such as sprinkles, cute utensils, recipe books/cards.

I do quite a bit of card-making and scrapbooking, so I'd definitely appreciate pretty papers and stickers or any other embellishments.

Comment: I am ratinig a 3 because my partners card was postdated on the 10th of July which was 8 days past the date of the swap ending. Before I went in for surgery I emailed her letting her know I had not received her card. She replied but did not state that she had sent it late. I wrote her when I received the p.c. and she states there must be a misunderstanding, her other partners rated her just fine. But her other partners must not have noticed the card was postmarked after the send by date. I'm sorry but I rate by the rules of swapbot and I state that on my profile. Next time please advise your partner that your swap is going to be late. Don't expect it to be ok just because it's naturally late because it's coming from out of the country.
Response: As I've told my partner, I'd have let her know if I had sent it late - which I didn't. I sent it before the send-by date, which I've let my partner know as well. I apologise again that it took so long to reach her though, I'm sorry.

Thank You...Thank You...Thank You...so much for the goodies I received today. It was great! I loved all of it! And I loved the stamps on the envelope. I was so excited that I took a pic of the envelope and texted it to my sister. This is the furtherest (not sure how to write that), place I've received something from yet!...Big giant (((HUGS))).

Heyee thank you for the thoughtful gift for YGM5! That was really sweet of you to find the jelly belly jelly beans, just think, they were made in the US, traveled all the way there, and now back! Hehe they're internationally experienced now aren't they! Thanks for making my day special and playing YGM! <3 <3 <3
