25 Things About Me

Here is an entry that I stumbled upon while rummaging through my list of unpublished entries laying idle in my Blogger account.

It was written about 3 months back because it was a fad on Facebook at that time. Thought I'd share it with you.

It's called '25 Things About Me'.

1) I despise anchovies. Eating anchovies for me is like a scene from Fear Factor.

2) I can live on potatoes, eggs, milk and cheese. Maybe I should get myself an Irish boyfriend.

3) Female is my favourite magazine. I buy it diligently every month.

4) Liars, rich people who belittle the economically challenged and people who litter puts me off tremendously.

5) I have never followed a tour group on holiday and never will.

6) I am a dog person. A cat cannot love you like a dog and a goldfish is just a goldfish.

7) I currently have 257 books in my collection and growing. Am planning to buy a nice big teak bookcase for my ‘babies’ soon.

8) I can’t speak any Chinese language or dialect properly, thanks to my Peranakan dad.

9) I am studying French not because I have a French boyfriend, or that I’m planning to nab one. I just feel it’s an asset to know many languages and I chose French cause it’s widely spoken in Europe.

10) I could climb a tree at age 2 because the mango tree in my house was my only companion when my mum was busy taking care of my new born sister. The mango tree is now gone and I’ve never climbed a tree since.

11) My car is older than me. Didn’t get rid of it because of its huge sentimental value – my dad drove my mum to the hospital in that car when she was going to give birth to me. The car is still solid and runs like the wind. I nickname it ‘Tiger’.

12) My favourite travel quote is “Travelling is like a book. Those who do not travel reads only a page” by St Augustine.

13) My goddaughter is older than me. She is expecting her first-born this August.

14) There were only 2 times I pissed in public. The first time was as a 2-year-old on Klebang beach, Malacca. The second time was in December last year in Laos. Cheers to many more public pisses to come!

15) Even though I celebrate CNY and Christmas, I prefer CNY. Maybe it’s because of the ang pows ...

16) I was a mega huge fan of New Kids on the Block in my teens. I used to scream and scream when they appeared on television until my dad would scold me.

17) I had a very bad case of acne during my teenage years.

18) I know every possible swear word in English, Bahasa Malaysia, Cantonese, Hokkien and Tamil.

19) I was inspired to study martial arts by watching movies that starred Jackie Chan and Jet Li. I think Wo Peng is the best martial arts choreographer.

20) Becoming fat is my second greatest fear after fear of God.

21) My goal in life is to get married and to become a kid manufacturing plant. Just kidding … My goal in life is to be happy and contented.

22) I think the best male pop/rock artists with the best vocals are Bono, Jon Bon Jovi and Rob Thomas. They can pull-off any note effortlessly.

23) My digestive system is ultra sensitive towards coffee. I don’t need to eat lots of fruits and vege to empty my bowels; just drink a cup of coffee and I’ll be sitting on the throne within half an hour.

24) Going to TAR College was the biggest regret in my life.

25) I swear a lot …
