16 Things You May Or May Not Know About Me

Apit tagged with this a few days back and since I’m out of ideas on what to write about now, I thought I would do this blog tag instead. This may or may not bore some people, (hah!) and the stuff that I write are in no particular order what so ever.

Directions: Once you’ve been tagged, you have to write a blog/Facebook note with 16 random things, facts, habits or goals about you. At the end choose 16 people to be tagged, listing their names and why you chose them. Don’t forget to leave them a comment or tag them in your note to read this.

1. I am my parents’ only daughter and I love it. When my mom was expecting her 4th child, I prayed for it to be a boy. I never wanted a sister. I guess in my own way, I wanted to be special.

2. By a weird twist of fate, I married a man who was the only son in his family therefore I gained 3 “sisters”. Sometimes I don’t know how to communicate with them. Sister bonding is not something I’m good at.

3. Having said that I do have dear friends that I would consider sisters. We share nearly everything (except “bedroom” stuff, if you know what I mean).

4. My favorite color is blue. Most of my clothes are in this shade of color. For my wedding day, of course the color chosen was blue.

5. My left eye is smaller than my right eye which is noticeable especially in photos. Dina inherits this flaw from me.

6. I’ve done skydiving but never bungee jumping. I don’t like bungee jumping because of the down-up-down-up situation. Makes me wheezy even thinking about it. I’m ok with skydiving because you only fall once. Plus the view is so much better.

7. My favorite animal in the whole wide world are polar bears. There’s just something about them that make me want to hug them and sleep up against their fur. My least favorite animal are dogs. Even cute ones wearing cheerleader uniforms or whatever clothes their owners make them wear.

8. I drink milk but not soya milk. However I eat tau fu fa and tempe which are essentially made from soya beans.

9. When I was small, my family lived in the UK. We stayed in a very nice city called Sheffield. I still have vivid memories of the place especially the time I got to meet the late Lady Diana when she had just gotten married. I was selected to be the girl to give her flowers when she came to visit my school. Other than my mom, I thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world.

10. Eventhough I have 2 kids already with a third on the way, there are times that I still can’t believe I’m a mom. A part of me feels so insecure or maybe undeserving, I don’t know which. When I see my girls sleeping in their beds at night, sometimes I have to pinch myself to remind me that it’s not a dream.

11. I use my handphone for calls and smses only. I hardly know how to use MMS or GPRS or Bluetooth or even the MP3 player. This is coming from someone that works in the telecommunication industry. Hah! Having said that, I never have the need or urge to splurge on super expensive phones or gadgets.

12. My favorite subject in school was Maths. My least favorite was History eventhough I had a superb history teacher. It totally wasn’t her fault I almost failed the subject, I’m just really bad at remembering dates and names.

13. I love watching horror movies though I spook myself out with my insane imagination for like 3 weeks after watching. I imagine ghosts sneaking up behind me. I imagine ghosts looking at me through my mirror. I imagine ghosts clinging to the ceiling, waiting to pounce on me as I walk by. Yeah, I don’t know why I still watch horror movies.

14. Starting year end, I want our family to do more traveling. I want my kids to see the world. I don’t mind saving up and spending money on this. I think life experience is so much better than material things.

15. I used to dream of driving an MPV but after the fuel hike and other stuff, I think a small car is best when you’re living and working in the city.

16. I’m stuck on this last one…..hmmm…..ok, I love dark chocolate. The darker the better. Naturally I hate white chocolate….too sweet.

There you have it. 16 interesting or not-so-interesting facts about me. That took some serious thinking and I’m getting hungrier by the minute. I should tag 16 people but most of the people on my blogroll have already been tagged. Therefore whoever wants to do this tag, just let me know in the comments section and I’ll come by to read your much-more-interesting facts.
