12 Days of Christmas Swop 2013 edition

16 Comments

Last year my pal Juanita and I hosted an international swop for bloggers (more about it HERE, HERE and HERE). A total of 9 bloggers participated. I made a video everyday as I opened the presents from my swop partner, then uploaded each unveiling video daily onto my facebook page.

We enjoyed it so much that we are doing it again this year! We hope more bloggers would join us!

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
