10 random things about me
#1. I can't roll my tongue. No matter how I train myself, it's like zilch.
#2. I have a high threshold for any form of pain.
#3. I have double eyelids, and sometimes triple if I get out on the right side of bed.
#4. I'm not Christian, or any religion. I'm a free-thinker.
#5. I always have brain flashes of myself sitting amidst a grassy field with poppies and beautiful flowers, talking to my loved one. We have wind blowing in our hand, and that feeling of deja vu.
#6. I have small hands, and if you do hold my hand, you will find that I have a really faint grip.
#7. I used to have wavy and really shiny jet black hair, but now it' all straight.
#8. I'm really afraid of moths, butterflies or bugs with large colourful wings.
#9. I like being sweet to almost everyone, unless they're too bitchy/spiteful/mean/unreasonable for rescue.
#10. My favourite ice cream flavour is not chocolate. It's tartufo. Very original. It can only be found at Venezia. (:

9 places I've visited/been to
#1. Disneyland is always worth remembering.
#2. I have this semi-distant grand aunt and uncle and they used to own this HUGE house on a hill in L.A. and it was just so gorgeous. I was totally spell-bound walking into the hall for the first time. Such a good feeling. I slept there for a night!
#3. The toilet in the executive suite at the Ritz Carlton in Beijing, it has two sinks! I love huge, marble-polished toilets with rain showers.
4. The beach on a deserted island south of Phuket. It has sparkly clear waters, and itsy bitsy coral fish that swim around your legs to tickle you when you feed them bananas.
#5. The ice-cream parlor at the gas station in New Zealand. It had over 30 or 40 divine flavors! Just HEAVENLY.
#6. The beautiful quarry at OBS. 205 m of water and wildlife.
#7. THE BOYS' ROOM! As a kid. Shhh. :D
#8. Australia, Gold Coast. I loved licking on the carameled candy, as I sat on Mommy's lap on a horse carriage.
#9. Starbucks at Shaw, near Wheelock, Cali Fitness, Raffles City. Starbucks is my best friend.

8 things I want to do before I die
#1. Organize a really smashing wedding bash. The kind that people remember for the rest of their lives.
#2. Ride in a hot air balloon.
#3. Sunrise/sunset and everything in between exclusively with someone I love and cherish and boo.
#4. Be in a really well-planned well-executed photoshoot.
#5. Go bungee jumping off a helicopter in somewhere with really gorgoeus scenery. That's definite. Maybe I could do that when I'm like, 90 with wiry white hair.
#6. Own a pair of Gucci heels.
#7. Find a best friend.
#8. Self-Actualization!

7 ways to win my heart
#1. Make sure that I think of you as a good friend, first.
#2. Be intelligent, VERY intelligent. And quick, you know, witty, sarcastic, funny.
#3. Ignore me/Play hard to get! It's not fool proof though.
#4. Admit that I'm too awesome, even for words. Which is usually easy really, specially if you're being dishonest.
#5. Acceptance, unconditional, always. Or almost always, because I'm kind.
#6. Remember cute little details, not in the gay way, in the sensitive way. Like I would be really touched if you remembered something insignificant I told you 2 months ago.
#7. Be your sweet-ass self, because if I love you I wouldn't care.

6 things that annoy you
#1. Over-confidence in the undeserving.
#2. Self-absorbtion paired with a low IQ.
#3. Uncontrollability of anything regarding self.
#4. Insincerity from others, to others, especially when expressing concern.
#5. Rude, insensitive flirts. SIGH. Just get a hold on yourself.
#6. Inability to just shut it off and let it go.

5 things I'm afraid of
#1. The dark, still, ever since I was _ years old.
#2. Not being happy.
#3. That boogey monster in The Village. And the spines. You know, it just freaks me all out.
#4. Losing a loved one. I can't imagine that happening one day.
#5. Not achieving what I aimed for.

4 of my favourite things in my bedroom
#1. My wardrobe filled with tons of delectable things!
#2. Memories leftover from my old friends. Beautiful trinkets and presents, old photographs. I thrive on memories.
#3. Patrick, because without him I wouldn't have something to hug onto at night when I sleep. GROW UP, STOP LAUGHING!
#4. My bed, because that's what a bedroom is all about.

3 things I do everyday
#1. Wake up late unless I have an early appointment. Days when I used to rise and shine at 8 am, are long gone.
#2. Talk to my friends on the phone. Communication makes sure we don't drift apart.
#3. Brush my teeth. That's the first thing I do when I wake up, and I have to do it at least 3 times a day.

2 things I want to do right now
#1. Play Omens of Love.
#2. Get a nice Hershey's white chocolate bar with cookie bits in it.

1 person I want to see right now
