About Me

Hello hello! My name is Xue Ying and I am from sunny Singapore. I will be turning 23 in the coming October which still scares me! My body seems to age so much and so fast as the years past by. Paranoid much? Maybe!

I like baking, cooking, listening to music, pinterest-ing and of course, sending mails! I enjoy pilates through blogilates (Cassey is such an inspiration!) and does it on a daily basis.

I love travelling as well! My dream is to travel as many places as I can before I get too old and weak! Haha. Of course it's still a long way to go till I conquer the world but I have been to a handful of places: - Malaysia - Cambodia (Siem Reap area) - China (Cheng Du, Si Chuan areas) - Taiwan (Taipei, Taichung, Cingjing) - Japan (Kyushu, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka)

Food is my passion and the therapy for the soul. I love eggs, tofu and beancurd anything. I adore vegetables and fruits and my favourite protein is fish and yogurt. I love pastries, desserts and all things bakery/cafe. I normally go cray cray if I enter a bakery because I'll be wondering what I should try and most of the time end up not buying anything because there's too many I want to eat! I have a sweet tooth but I do not fancy caramel or marshmallow! It is wayyy too sweet!

I enjoy long walks and I don't like the colour pink. I don't have anything against it, I just am not the girly-girl, y'know? Black is my jam and my fashion sense is zero. Comfort is what I go for normally and yeap, they're black mostly.

I don't really watch TV or movies (I know I have a boring life but bear with me guys!) so here's a list of some that I do and enjoy. I tried to extend the list, I really did. Haha.

  • America Horror Story
  • America's Next Top Model
  • Black Mirror
  • Bones
  • F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
  • Harry Potter franchise
  • Howl's Moving Castle
  • Masterchef USA
  • Orange is The New Black
  • Say Yes to the Dress
  • Sherlock UK
  • Spirited Away
  • Supernatural

I am awkward and do not have the most friendliest face normally but I don't bite.

Favorite Music

I listen to songs of any languages as long as they have a good beat to it. Not a big fan of ballad though. Here are some of my favourite artistes:

  • Ed Sheeran
  • The Cab
  • A Day To Remember
  • Sleeping With Sirens
  • All Time Low
  • Jessie J
  • Hunter Hayes
  • Hands Like Houses
  • Daughtry etc.

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading so it is really unfortunate that I read more in the past than I do now due to y'know work and adulthood. Some of my favourites are:

  • Night Circus (by Erin Morgenstern)
  • Miss P. Home for Peculiar Children series (by Ransom Riggs)
  • Wonder (by R. J. Palacio)
  • Mosquitoland (by David Arnold)
  • Room (by Emma Donoghue)
  • When Breath becomes Air (by Paul Kalanithi)
  • Holes (by Louis Sachar)
  • The Little Prince (by Saint-Exupéry, Antoine de)
  • A Monster Calls (by Patrick Ness)
  • Book of Lost Things (by John Connolly) etc.


I don't really have a preference for what you guys want to send because I strongly believe in the thoughts that comes along with it rather than the things sent. You can refer to my profile above to know how a person I'm like and let your creative juices flow but if I really have to name a few things...

  1. Stationery. I am a sucker for these. I have two overflowing drawers of markers and pens, but every time I step into a bookstore, my hands get all itchy and I end up leaving with another 5/6 pieces of goods to add to my collection!

  2. Random items like a piece of leaf or rock or paper. Anything that is from another country and I've never seen before is always something special.

  3. Are sweets allowed? I love dark chocolate and I am ever amazed by the kind of chocolates and candies from overseas. So if they are allowed in postages, I would love to receive them. Most of our sweets in Singapore are pretty typical but we do have some snacks that are from the 90's. (; I absolutely adore anything peanut butter or nut butter in general. They are so expensive in Singapore but I am obsess with them. Don't judge but I eat my nut butters with scrambled eggs! They are salty, peppery and sweet all in one and it may sound disgusting and weird to you but they are a delicacy to me!

  4. Anything that has to with the country you are from. It can a stamp, it can be an brochure or magnet or the Saturday's newspaper. Well, I do love collectibles. I'm weird like that.

  5. Anything related to Spirited Away's No Face and soot balls! I love these two characters because they are so mysterious! Haha. I guess these items are harder to find but if you do have anything related, I welcome them with open arms! ♥

I am a newbie so my collection is still small, but if you guys want anything I will still find it. JUST FOR YOU GUYS. hahah. ♥

Comment: Hello:), thank you for a great swap, i really love everything and your letter attached, i am ready to reccomend and talk about my country - as i am a guide:) - i do also food tours so i have experiences to share
Comment: First off, if I could give you more than one heart I definitely would. I was so excited, I didn't even wait until I was home to open yours, I had my husband open it and read it to me over the phone. I'm actually from Virginia but have been in N. Carolina for about a year and a half now, and they're close states but different in many ways. I too love Duck Donuts and I'm lucky to have one about 5 minutes from my home. I will treasure the lovely turtle keychain and amazing Totoro postcards forever, it sure meant a lot that you took the time to send items that were listed from my favorites, thank you once again for your kindness.

I'm one of your partners for ESG: Nice profile comment. Thank you for being a member of Swap-Bot and I hope you're having a fabulous weekend.

Yay! Another person who shares my same sense of fashion: comfortable is the ONLY way to go! And I love the items on your wishlist! So many that are similar to things I like, too.

ESG: Nice profile comment

Hello from Finland!

I'm always amazed how nice Singaporean people are, I've met so many on Instagra, etc and they always bring a smile to my face with their positivity, same with your profile :)

I also love Harry Potters and American Horror Story, can't wait for the next season and Lady Gaga!!

Have a great weekend!!

ESG: Nice profile comment

Hey there! I must say I feel really connected to you just by reading your profile haha! I have zero sense of fashion as well! Yaai sister! And I love to travel as well! It is so cool that you were able to see so many places in Asia! So far I have been to Nepal, but I would love to see China and Japan and of course also Singapore! Also yay to the sausages! :D You should come to Germany, we got the best ones!!

I hope you have a wonderful day! All the best! Vanessa
