Again, this post was from my first blog 4 years ago, over at my personal multiply account, which is being deleted, as I write 🙂
The title is ME IN A HUNDRED NUTSHELLS but obviously, I can’t write the full list here since I wish to remain anonymous… so it’ll be close to a hundred, I think. Will also blog this in 3 parts so that it won’t be so full of me in 1 sitting. 😛 I might risk alienating you all after this, hahaha 🙂 Hope this gives you a bit of a glimpse as to who I was, who I am now and who I want to be.
1.) I was born on the 3rd of ___, 5:50 P.M. Incidentally, my fiancee was also born on the same day but at 12:02 A.M.
2.) I am currently 102 lbs. I’m underweight for my height but I need to go on a diet because of high cholesterol (blame it on heredity).
3.) I love the color blue in general… but love wearing pink, red, and white.
4.) I wear earrings everyday because the holes in my ear close if I don’t.
5.) Yes, yes my eyes are sooper small but it doesn’t mean I view life in “laser vision” mode…
6.) …neither do I see people or things in half when my eyes smile!!!
7.) I can be gregarious and the life of the party WHEN I WANT TO BE.
8.) I always go for the underdog, unless the underdog has the majority following, then I go for the minority. Just to keep things balanced in my own little way. Teeheehee! 😀
9.) My favorite movies of all time are: Cinema Paradiso, Meet Joe Black, Stranger than Fiction, Roman Holiday and Thank You For Smoking.
10.) I loooooove Chilli’s Mash Potato, Gambas, Wagyu, Shawarma and Siomai in XO Sauce. — I still do! 🙂
11.) I hate liars and cheaters, plastic and social climbing people
12.) I most especially hate people who backstab. I say, fight your battles face-to-face.
13.) I used to be very attracted to “bad boy” types.
14.) My dream car is an AUDI – simple but classy.
15.) I spent my grade school and high school days in an all-girls private school.
17.) I used to watch WWF with my brothers when I was in the 6th grade and looooved Brutus the Barber Beefcake!
18.) Always Coca-Cola. Addicted to it. Don’t like drinking Coke Light or Pepsi… it’s just not the real thing!
19.) I read a lot of books but always go back to my comics: Snoopy, Calvin and Hobbes and the good ol’ Riverdale gang (Archie).
20.) I get good ideas while taking a shower or while I’m swimming.
21.) Good Times: Royal Carribean Cruise ’93, Beijing ’02, El Nido ’04, and New York ’08. A recent trip that I just have to add to this list – El Nido 2012 (Baby Bear’s first trip) — I blogged about the preps for that trip here. 🙂
22.) Can’t live without my ipod! I love a little bit of every type of music. There’s very little music that I cannot appreciate.
23.) I still can’t believe that there are some people who don’t know who the Beatles are. They are what all good songs are made of.
25.) I love taking pictures more than “being in” the pictures.
26.) If I didn’t have to worry about money, I would travel, take pictures, and write a novel, in that order.
27.) I love puppies and polar bears.
28.) Just this year, I have learned to love broccoli and can’t wait to make broccoli soup.
29.) I love to sing, have a knack for immediately memorizing lyrics of songs that I like, and once thought I could sing in a band for a living — just wish that I had the voice to go with the singing! 😀
30.) When I was young, we’d go to HK for a family vacation at least once a year… and my most memorable year was my dad bringing me to Whimsy Land and winning a stuffed doll for me. I still have it to this day. (Update 1: It got washed away during Ondoy 😦 Update 2: The Bear Family tries to go to Hong Kong at least once a year, too!) 🙂
31.) I love the leg part of the chicken, so does the hubby. But he always gives it to me instead. I know it sounds cliche, but it’s true! 🙂
32.) I’m allergic to lipstick. My lips crack when I apply them. Haven’t found the perfect hypoallergenic lipstick yet. So, for now, it’s lipgloss with color for me.
33.) I was part of the table tennis varsity team and we won first place.
34.) I was also a member of the swimming varsity team but for 2 days only… my mom made me quit because I kept falling asleep in class the day after swim practice.
35.) When i was young, my mom thought I would become an artist… turns out I don’t have the gift.
35.) I wish i could see the 7 Wonders of the World.
36.) I feel that one of life’s greatest achievement would be to “be someone’s mentor”.
To be continued… if you still want me to… 😛
