25 random things about me

After a couple of tags, I decided to plunge into this (probably because I'm procrastinating from starting work)

1. I was born in the year of the Monkey.
2. I dont like drinking milk. Always have since I was a kid. I just don't find the taste appealing. The only way I can down it is with cereal and even with that it HAS to be cold skim milk and nothing else.
3. My current favourite cereal is Cheerios.
4. My current favourite drink is tomato juice.
5. I had my first car accident two days after I got my driver's license.
6. I got my first mobile phone when I was in second year of university.
7. I recently started baking my own bread.
8. I prefer summer over winter and heat over cold
9. I prefer tea to coffee and wine to beer.
10. I have to pause now to hang up the laundry.
11. My two favourite male actors are Johnny Depp and Christian Bale.
12. My longest phone record is 9 hours straight on the phone.
13. I chipped my front tooth falling down a flight of stairs while rushing to catch a taxi to the airport for a business trip to HK (my colleague had to postpone my appointments telling them all why... I had to deal with curious questions and looks during all the following week's meetings in HK).
14. I made spaghetti carbonara for dinner last night.
15. I used to help my hubby run a board games cafe in Singapore.
16. I've never had chicken pox. I got vaccinated just before I went to uni and need to check every now and again that my vaccination levels are sufficient. Now there's no turning back as it would be too inconvenient to have it.
17. My wedding ceremony and two wedding banquets were held in three different cities in the span of four days.
18 I had a brief encounter with someone I met on the internet when I was 17 (we went out twice before I stopped answering his calls).
19. I picked up sign language from my hearing impaired housemate while I was at university.
20. The one type of food I cannot stomach is internal organs... kidney and liver - yucks!
21. I used to be in my church tambourine dance group.
22. I sometimes wonder how I would survive never being able to sleep in on Saturdays again after we have kids.
23. My top love language is 'Quality Time', followed by 'Words of Affirmation'
24. I am a 'banana' (Chinese who cannot speak Chinese)
25. My top five simple pleasures in life are: having a nice leisurely pancake and/or eggs breakfast on Saturday mornings; curling up in bed with a good book; a really really good laugh - until my tummy hurts and start crying; coming home to any place I call home; waking up in the dark and checking my clock to find that I still have 2 hours of sleep left before it's time to get up.


  1. Do I dare lay claim to that 9 hours?:)

  2. It was one night and one night only!
