Since work and all things about life is making me irritable, let me answer 50 random questions. Just take it as a “let’s get to know each other better” post. I am too cranky to write anything constructive.
1: What was the last book you read?
“Body Language: How to know what’s REALLY being said” by James Borg.
2: Do you like roller coasters?
Yes, especially the upside-down ones!
3: Day or night?
4: What do you hear right now?
118 (a Singaporean drama) being broadcasted on TV
5: What would you name your son or daughter if you had one?
Probably something that is Japanese sounding. Because there are too many “Hui Mins”, “Rachels”, “Michelles” and “Benjamins” flooding the country.
6: Do you want kids? Why or why not?
Ideally yes, but that depends if I can find my Prince Charming or not!
7: What’s your favorite memory with your best friend(s)?
We used to draw our dream house (like those doll houses) during free periods in primary school.
8: How many times did it take you to pass your driver’s test?
None. I haven’t taken any. Cars are god damn expensive here you know? Even if I have a license I doubt I can afford a car.
9: The scariest dream you had?
Dreamt that my CAP fell to 2.3 during exam results release. School stuff is a living nightmare that always give me nightmares. Nightmare-ception!
10: How tall are you?
11: The last thing you ate was…
Home-cooked fried rice for dinner.
12: A band you want to see live is…
13: Do you have a hero/someone you look up to? If so, who?
I can’t think of any right now to be honest.
14: Do you like to swim?
Only when the water is not cold.
15: Things you look for in a guy/girl?
-Accepts me for who I am instead of being a control freak.
-Shares some common interests if not I will find it difficult to talk to him.
-Takes regular effort to exercise and stay in shape.
-Must not ask me redundant questions like “What are you doing now”. I don’t feel obliged to update busybodies what I am doing every 10 minutes.
-Must not be interested in thighs, breasts and legs.
I can go on but that will take forever. Next!
16: Has a book ever upset you?
Yes. I got upset because I have no clue what sh*t the author was trying to make!
17: What was the first instrument you learned to play? (if any)
18: Some of your hobbies include…
Day dreaming, dancing, shopping, reading anything that interests me, scrolling aimlessly through instagram and pinterest
19: How do you deal with anger?
Suck it up and pretend that everything is fine. Last time I used pen it down in my diary but the process makes me recall the incident which makes me even more angry.
20: Something you like about your appearance is…
I can’t think of any.
21: What was the last movie you watched?
Konkurito (Concrete), directed by Hiromu Nakamura. It is loosely based on the infamous murder of Junko Furata. Even though I like Sosuke Takaoko’s acting, the movie was damn sick especially with the dizzy camera shots, the already sickening murder case, and the sickening fact that the murderers’ punishment didn’t justify the crime.
Okay that’s enough. Next!
22: Do you have a favorite ghost story? What about a personal ghost story?
None, for both questions. Don’t believe in ghosts.
23: Where is the farthest from home that you’ve gone?
24: Have you met anyone through Tumblr that you’d like to meet irl?
I have no Tumblr, so no one!
Okayy if I change Tumblr to Instagram, I would like to meet @illscripts.
25: Do you look like your parents?
A lot of people have commented that I look like my Dad.
26: Things you have in common with your parents?
Dad- height, don’t get fat easily, quiet in front of strangers. I can’t think of anymore.
Mum- DIY, OCD, worrying too much.
27. What is to the right of you?
My aunt, who is playing Candy Crush.
28: A favorite memory with a sibling?
I have no siblings.
29: What is something you wish you’d done?
I wish I continued learning Malay so that I wouldn’t have made a fool of myself when speaking it.
30: What are some of your favorite blogs?
Tofugu, jisforjapan, Cheeserland.
And of course my blog!
31: Do you sing in the shower?
Only when I am in a good mood. The 3 songs I will definitely sing are 橄榄树(The Olive Tree), 东方红(The East is Red) and the song from London Choco Roll commercial.
32: Something others have described you as…
Hardworking (Don’t mean to sound boastful but… 😅)
33: Name of every pet you’ve had…
I used to keep fish last time but didn’t name them. My aunts’ cats don’t count because I don’t own them.
34: Your favorite superhero?
None. Not a fan of superheros.
35: Two of your fears are…
Fear of failing and fear of death.
36: What you’re majoring in in college/what you plan to major in…
37: What is your favorite season?
Singapore has no 4 seasons to choose from.
38: The best vacation you took?
Royal Caribbean vacation.
39: Why your best friend is your best friend.
Because fate has it.
40: How did you come across your favorite band?
I forgot how but I was surfing Youtube for Japanese songs and it led me to Wagakki Band. The very 1st MV I watched was Senbozakura (it was formerly sung by vocaloids) and I loved how they arranged their cover.
41: Occupations you wanted as a little kid?
Teacher and Scientist. Now teaching is right at the bottom of my list of career choices. Personally I think that’s one of the worst jobs in the world. And no way I am able to be a scientist. Talk about day dreaming at a young age.
42: Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Introvert. Hands down.
43: When was the last time you drank?
I don’t drink.
44: How many pillows do you sleep with?
1. The more pillows I have, the more they need to be washed, and I am lazy.
45: Are you a “safe” driver?
I don’t drive. But given the fact that I have a very poor sense of direction and orientation, I guess not.
46: Something that’s bothering you right now?
Yes a lot of things in fact.
-Exam results to be released in less than a week.
-I don’t feel like re-editing the marketing proposals needed for CCA but I have to get them done by this week.
-I am hitting a dead end for my work.
-Someone is irritating me on Facebook.
-I am still waiting for Prince Charming to drop from the sky.
47: How many cds do you own?
Too many to count.
48: How many books do you own?
Too many to count as well!
49: How many aunts and uncles do you have?
Around 20 I think. Do distant relatives and ancestors count?
50: “Top 5” [Something]
The most difficult question ever. Okay how about a “Top 5 things I have to do before I die”?
1.Travel to North Korea
2. Travel to Shangri-La. As in the county in China not the hotel
3. Get married
4. Adopt a cat
5. Do partner yoga with my husband LOL
Okay that’s all and thank you for your time if you managed to read till the end. Till next time…
And still feeling cranky.
Oh and here is a view from my workplace. Presenting to you a big concrete slab!
