Further Proof Of How Unspectacular I Am

Heather tagged me. And when Heather does that, you better find the time to answer her call. Because she is one baddass chick. And I say that with all the love in the world.

Here be the rules:
1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

1. I can't stand/eat instant noodles. Even if I eat it accidentally (what? it's happened before), I immediately throw up. I think this is due to the fact that when I was growing up, my parents were really poor. Everyday before going to work, my dad would give my mom 50 cents (or less to buy food. The cheapest thing around back then (and even now I think) was instant noodles. You know, Maggee Mee. Everyday my mom would feed me that while she ate sugar cane. Yes, sugar cane. So now, all that ajinomoto has caused me to become sensitive to even the smell of instant noodles.

2. I wear clothes that I've had since my school days. To work. These are clothes that are 16 years old. They're not even torn so I always tell myself why spend money on clothes when I have lots that still fit. My mom nags me about this all the time. She thinks I shouldn't wear clothes that are so outdated. Daaahh! Nobody's hassled me about it at work but my officemates do notice it when I wear something new.

3. I don't like wearing jewellery. The only ones I wear are my wedding ring, my anniversary ring, my very thin anniversary necklace (which I never take off) and my tiny earrings. I don't wear bracelets or bangles. I don't have any other rings and the only other necklace I have is something my mom passed down to me, which I wear only for functions and during raya. I would hardly even spend money to buy jewellery for myself. Yet another thing my mom bugs me about.

4. I don't like to cook (hate is too strong a word because sometimes when I'm in the mood, I can cook up a storm) but I love to bake. During my Uni days, my idea of getting rid of stress would be to bake a cake. Any cake, it didn't matter. Then I would call the guys to help eat it.

5. I love travelling but I hate the journey getting there. It's not so bad when we're travelling by car (flat butt syndrome) but it's pretty bad when we have to fly somewhere. When you've seen one cloud, you've seen them all. This is probably one reason why I'll never set foot in the USA again (other than since 9-11, it's really hard getting a visa) coz I would just go crazy, sitting in a plane for 30 hours or so. I'll go maybe when they've invented the teleport machine. Travel in 2 seconds or less.

6. I get bored easily. I'm already bored doing this meme. Hehe. It takes a lot to maintain my interest in anything, which is why hubby is such an extraordinary guy. Hah!!

ok, next step...tag 6 other people to do the same meme. It's already 630pm, just 1 more hour till break fast. So I'm going to randomly point my finger at links on my blogroll.

1. AJ
2. Famil
3. Halwafy
4. Noresh
5. DottyBaby
6. Arina

So, you guys can do the meme...or not. No pressure, I won't kill you. Unlike Heather.
