About Me



I'm from The Philippines. Mail might take a while to get to you. Our mail system is really terribly slow. Please be patient. Thanks!!!

note: I don't personally mail my swap out. I either ask my husband, sister or our office messenger to mail out my swaps. I click sent as soon as I hand it over to them to mail out. Knowing that they would mail it within the day.

about me 1

I'm a mother to a 6 yrs old boy and a 4 yrs old girl! They can be quite a handful!!!

I am not very artistic even though I really want to be. I am not a crafter though I love to buy stuff from craft stores. I like to dabble in craft once in a while but often times I just finish a project or two then get bored and move to another or just completely lose interest. I am a huge fan of fashion illustrations and cute hand drawn doodles. I love looking at those type of art. I also love looking at scrapbooks, project life albums, art journals, smash books, junk journals & sketch journals. I may not be artistic enough to make one but I surely love getting inspired by them. :)

I love to shop and I love looking for stuff & buying people what they like. One huge reason why I like joining profile surprise type of swaps.

I like to collect a lot of things. I have a huge collection of shoes. Yes, I love shoes. I had a closet especially made for my shoes and now it's filled so I need to search for other place here in our house to stash them. I love fashion! I love anything to do with fashion! I like to dress up and look nice. I am particularly fond of Asian (mainly Hong Kong, Japanese & Korean) and European (British, French & Scandinavian) fashion.

diary I am very much into cute blank planners/agendas from Japan, Korea, Taiwan & China. I have collected a bunch now that I've run out of place to put my planners collection. I also love deco planner stickers, washi tapes and mini rubber stamps that I can use for my planner. I love decorating my planner with cute things.

I recently discovered the amazing Filofax, MidoriTN & Hobonichi community on Instagram & YouTube. And I am hooked!

I currently use a Neon Pink Fauxdori, Korean Planner and a Hobonichi.

I love stationery! I can never leave a stationery shop without buying something. Be it a new sticker sheet or a cute pen. I love washi tapes, sticky notes and I am absolutely obsessed with cute notebooks & planners (like I said before). :)

tv I love to watch TV. I am a TV junkie. I love procedural dramas like CSI, fantasy/sci-fi like Grimm, Being Human, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, Veronica Mars, teen dramas like Dawson's Creek. One of my fave now is BBC's Sherlock. I also like watching reality TV shows like American Idol, The Voice, Biggest Loser and Pinoy Big Brother. I am a huuuuge fan of Asian Dramas. My faves are Coffee Prince, It Started with a Kiss, They Kissed Again, Hana Kimi, and loads more.


I am open to One on One/Private Swaps. Just send me a message! :)

If you are looking for a particular item that you think I can get you please don't hesitate to get in touch with me!

The Kawaii Info


I don't really have a fave Kawaii character. You can send me any kawaii character well maybe with the exception of Diddl, Moomin, Nici & Doraemon. Oh, no Looney Toons, Nikelodeon or Cartoon Network characters either please. I am not a huge fan of Disney stuff but won't mind getting them. I love Alice in Wonderland though! Some Disney stuff are cute too especially the ones from Japan!

Oh, and I don't really like those Kawaii poop thingie. I don't know what those characters are called ... but please do not send those to me.

I love cute things!!! Nothing to worry if you'd like to send me big kawaii brands (Sanrio, San-X, cruX, etc.) or other Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese & Chinese kawaii goodies. Everything is welcome as long as they are cute! But no ugly fake goodies please! I'd rather get an unknown character than get a fake Kawaii stuff.

Handmade things & destashed items are very much welcome!!! :D

About Swaps & Ratings

read this

If you did not receive anything from me please send me a message first. If my parcel arrived damaged, as it is more possible for International swaps. I am more than willing to resend! Do let me know. :)

Also please be patient as it may take a couple of months (give or take around 2 to 8 weeks) before mail gets to you as I am from South East Asia, the Philippines in particular.

I also rate as soon as I receive swaps. If I haven't rated you yet that only means I have not receive your swap/parcel. I don't immediately rate 1's with out communication. I'd let you know if I haven't receive your swap past 2 months. Well unless I noticed that my partner's a flaker or has been partialy suspended then I will rate a 1 even without contacting them.


Just something to remind me: To insert a picture do this: ! [alternate text for your picture] (http link) (but remove the spaces between the 3 elements)

To make a clicky link do the same thing without the !

I love all amazing things you sent to me: 2 cooler bags, multipurpose pocket survival tool, mini correction tape, 2 coloring-crayons-in-1 pens, color-blink pen and a wonderful note in a mini-envelope. Love it! :D Received 2nd parcel! Thank you so much for the interior bag, card case, scissor pen, sewing set and travel toothbrush and toothpaste set. I think it´s everything on package, because the custom services opened it to check it out. You deserve million of stars :D
Response: I am so happy that you got both parcels safe & sound. And I am really glad that you like everything I send over. I remember about you wanting a scissor pen and saw one in MUJI so I quickly got that to include in your package. :) It was great swapping with you!
