Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

SWAP? the new Pen Pal


Land of Smiles Coca-Cola from Thailand

Recently I was telling my bf that how good it is to have somebody send me their country's coca-cola can instead of me asking my friends to get it for me when they go traveling. It'll be like I swap with u Malaysia's Coca-Cola can for your country's Coca-Cola can. Ok I'm not a Coca Cola freak but I love to drink Coca-Cola and I love how the designs on each country's Coca-Cola represents them @ the country in short.

From reading blogs, I've bump into http://swapsthing.blogspot.com/ & found this new thing call "swapping". As I read on and explore this new & interesting hobby, I've realize pen-pals has gone on to a higher heights! I used to love writing to Pen Pals from overseas and local too, sending them hand-written letters and gifts like photos, candies etc. I realize wow, it's been 10 years since I last had a pen-pal and boy has this trend evolved! There's now swapbots and gimmeyourstuffs and these sites coordinates such "swapping" activites making them "global exchanges".

  1. jamie would be your most ideal candidate to do an experiment, hahaha.

    u just give me an idea to write my next post, look out for it.

  2. Jamie has read several blogs on VOX and I think there is places to join up through Groups! The one German girl joined one where you get post cards from people from around the world, But there must be a person near you or a organization is what I really mean because they usually have a list of people who are I guess for any better word good/ people who actually do it right!
    There are tons of these things Some of the Girls with Blyth dolls once a year get a name sent to them and they make a care package to send to there Blyth Doll pall that year! I can see you having a real ball and going nuts making up a care package to send!
    I will try and find one of these who give out names and addresses so you are given a new person each year so you end up with a variety of people where you don't get stuck with a lame present giver!

  3. Jamie also thinks you should get payed for giving people ideas for blogs too

  4. jamie can u be my 1st swap buddy?

    uncle & hurley lives too near.. HAHAHAHA

  5. wut jamie? lol dun give uncle stress!!

  6. hey, not fair, i promoted you for free to miu and you asked her to charge me for an idea i got from reading miu's blog. so much for being grateful :P

    you would make hurley think of his competitor and make miu write a complain letter to me in too by suggesting that.

  7. Jamie thinks she should apply to that one that pays you for your blogs now where did i see that?? Oh yeah on Thomas mok pages!Good bloger He is!
    Miu... Swap buddy?? what would I get her, what to send? I will have to think on this one, is there any rules to this swap? and then I still fall back to "WHAT TO GET TO SEND" must think on this one????????

  8. jamie sounds excited! (me thinks)

    I think the only basic rules is:

    1. set a dateline
    2. what to swap? (and the price limit like usd10 or something so we can gauge whats our limit.
    3. post in a package, securely wrapped (to prevent postman who steals stuffs)


Thank you for leaving a comment! You don't know how much this means to me :)
