So what IS Mika Mail?

Silver, lilmot and Oakie Doke gave a good account on what it is about, so I'll just quote them :naughty::

 

Hmmmm.....I can give you my two cents worth. If you decide you want to join you pm Petra with the details of what type of partner you are looking for. For example: someone from UK or Japan, or anyone outside the US etc etc. You can also specify youngling or oldling.....or you can find your own partner by pming someone you see on the list and asking them. If they agree to be your partner, you let Petra know.

 

Then, you talk to your partner to get some ideas of what they would like to receive, what they like (or you stalk them on MFC :naughty:). This part can be fun too as you get to know more about your new friend. You usually make mutual agreements on when you will send each other a parcel. Sometimes things get delayed but you are responsible for keeping in touch with your partner and making sure that they know what is up.

 

Then, you shop. You wrap or pack in a box. You might include a note or a letter, and you mail it off. (and wait to receive yours) :blush-anim-cl:

 

To me the fun part is doing the shopping for someone else and trying to think of fun, interesting things that your partner would like. Then, of course, one day receiving a box of goods from some foreign port is rather exciting too. I will have to say that I done it several times and I have really enjoyed it and I learned about other places and made some good friends.

 

Also, for people wanting to know what Mika Mail "is", you can check out the old thread and see pictures of people's MMs: http://www.mikafanclub.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7429

(Or just search "photobucket" or something, and a bunch come up :naughty:)

 

http://www.mikafanclub.com/forums/search.php?searchid=1717040

 

And no, not everybody spends the same, you can say something like how much you want to spend in your preference, there's definitely other people who would want to do a smaller-sized package with you :thumb_yello:

 

As for what to send, I think it's usually:

  • Sweets, candies, cookies or biscuits
  • Magazines
  • Things that represent your country
  • Little toys
  • Anything Mika-ish
  • Keyrings
  • Badges
  • etc

 

In general - we are not a complicated bunch of people but here to have fun. There is no pressure, no deadline or anything!

Marvelous indeed :biggrin2:

I'm just subscribing :blush-anim-cl: since we have moved I don't want to get lost :naughty: I'll sing up again as soon as I have a bit more money, in meantime I'll enjoy looking other people's parcels. It's not same as actually eating candies but... oh, well...it is better for my figure :naughty:

Someone please explain how this works again - the criteria, the rules, what has worked in the past, what you'd recommend sending, what you wouldn't recommend...I'm considering this. Thanks.

guys so this is like the part 2 ?:blink:

 

im guessing its so Petra doesnt have to keep posting the list, so i guess its eaiser for her to start a new thread so she can edit the list eaiser

 

It's just that the other one was Pink's thread and it sucked having a thread starter which none of us could edit :boxed:. (etc. etc.)

 

 

Who was Sinas partner? I obviously lost her in the list :blink::boxed:.

I'm working on getting stuff together now! =]

Yay:naughty:

 

Laura, both my cat and my baby brother have been "pawing" at the box of stuff that I've collected so far, so if you find either of them in there when we do exchange the stuff, could you please return them?:lol3:
