One Hundred Things...

  1. I love history and mythical legends...
  2. I prefer not to make empty talks, trivial conversation...it makes me feel like a fraud...a hypocrite...pretending that I am concerned, when I barely know the person...
  3. I love crowds in a concert, but hate crowds in the night-market...an irony, I know...
  4. I'm an acrophobic - an irrational fear of heights...I can't look down from a tall building, or enter a lift (that provides a marvelous view of the city) without feeling nervous...
  5. Yet I don't feel any motion sickness boarding a plane...
  6. I have always wanted to go to the Genting Theme Park when I was a child...
  7. My wish to play in the theme park came through when my dad had to attend a meeting in Genting...
  8. My dad paid for the tickets for me, mum and my two siblings...it was bombshell for my dad at that time...but we didn't participate much...(long queues, didn't want to go alone, mum didn't want to come with me, siblings need taken care of, and many other factors)...dad was upset...
  9. I always felt guilty about that...
  10. When my college had permission/license to upgrade themselves from a University College to a University (these British systems), they changed their name from UCSI (University College of Sedaya International) to UCSIU (Unwavering Commitment to Serve Intentionally University)...
  11. My intestines and colons auto-knot themselves every time I am reminded of that...
  12. My degree certificate will be carrying the name :...I hereby certify Lessajinomoto has completed, blah, blah, blah..."...and signed " Unwavering Commitment to Serve Intentionally University (UCSIU)"...
  13. If that does happen, I will hang myself....with shame...man, what a mouthful of name...
  14. Raw eggs gross me out...
  15. So does a nest full of cockroaches...
  16. I can play the piano and violin...
  17. But I've still a long way to learn...painful finger exercises to endure...
  18. My Cantonese is "half a cup full"
  19. So is my Hokkien (a Chinese dialect), which is supposedly my mother-tongue...
  20. My English can be considered reasonably okay...both Westerners and Chinese alike understand me well...
  21. My Mandarin is painfully "whole cup empty" if there is such a word...I can barely string a sentences, without my mum snorting water through her nose...laughing...HARD...
  22. I think there should be a special place in hell for animal abusers, and child rapist...
  23. I love having chunky peanut butter as a whole...bread-free...just me dipping the spoon into that piece of beauty, and licking it off like ice-cream...
  24. I would never call an unmade bed, or a slight creative chaos in my room...a state of national emergency...
  25. I can drink...wine especially...but never really had the guts to go full blown pissed drunk...even back at home...
  26. I would want to rule the world for a while...
  27. If I were a world ruler, I would take a shot-gun, blow off the heads of every single Samy Vellu(s) and Syed Hamid(s) in this world...and happily toss their bodies overboard...the world would be a happier place without them...
  28. I don't get angry easily...I only save it for times when I have reached the end of my patience...and God knows there is no turning back...
  29. But when I do...be somewhere else...
  30. I can still be short tempered at times...but I am never bad tempered...
  31. I pity people who has life too easy...I wish for hardship on people, not to make their life a living hell...but so that their life would hold more meaning...and there is self-respect found in the process...
  32. I don't agonize over mis-understandings in friendships...
  33. I believe mis-understandings just make us understand each other more...
  34. I am not much of a looker...I gain and lose weight easily...
  35. I am OK with that...
  36. I never smoked a ciggie nor pot...
  37. I don't intend to do so...ever...
  38. I always believed that scoring a B- or C for my final term subjects does not make me a sore loser...Bad attitude when scoring an A does...
  39. But I have to keep telling myself that...
  40. I love Bargain shops...but I'd hate to bargain a price with dealers...
  41. I drive a Toyota Corona 1.6...he is older than me by two years...
  42. I find the guitar and violin femininely sexy...
  43. As for the piano, I find him upright and macho with firm abs to show...and square...
  44. I don't know much computers, but I am no bimbo...
  45. I am no rocker either, but I don't mind listening to Metallica the whole night through...
  46. My childhood all-time favourite cartoon...was Care Bears
  47. My teenage all-time hated tv show...was Telly Tubbies...and Winter Sonata...
  48. My now all-time favourite cartoon...is The Simpsons!!!...
  49. Being a girl, I don't see whats the big deal with Formula One racing and England Premier League...
  50. But I will happily watch Top Gear (car show) and join the crazy nuters to watch the World Cup Final. live...no matter how late they may be...I never claim to understand what the tv announcer talks about...
  51. I never voted in my country before...
  52. I am not proud of that...
  53. I didn't vote for Abdullah or Najib...
  54. I am proud of that...
  55. Most embarassing movies of all time...Antoo Fighters (2008), if translated, is just merely a lame version of Malay ghost fighters...and Cicakman (2006), also known as Lizard Man...trust the local production house to come out with such an UN-Marvel like name...lizard, of all things...a house-hold pest...
  56. Talking about house-hold, mum thought of ways to get me to love doing house hold chores...even to the point of suggesting to her friend to pay me some wages to clean her house...
  57. That failed MISERABLY...
  58. I love to cook...my mum doesn't believe that and I don't blame her...I always ran/found excuses when she asked me to help her around the kitchen...what she doesn't know is I prefer to cook...explore, I would call it...alone...save me the nagging...
  59. I hate formalities/protocals of any kind...be it for culture, family, or work...
  60. I wear a 3 and 1/2 size shoe...
  61. To date, I hold 3 visible scars and 5 not so visible scars...all thanks to a clumsy childhood...
  62. Unlike normal gals, I only own 3 pair of shoes so far; 2 silhouettes and a sports shoe...excluding sandals, of course...
  63. I am proud owner of 4 handphones...but only 2 works...others just help me take up space...
  64. I love rum and whiskey...
  65. I thought Johnny Walker was a macho man, until a friend of mine burst my fantasy bubble 2 years ago...
  66. When friends mention XO, I always mistaken it as "ass-hole"...and they laugh at me...
  67. I thought Maybelline was a friend of my friends...until they gave me THAT look...it was a make-up brand...
  68. My pet peeves are endless...I shall not waste time listing them here...just check out my post...
  69. I dance with 2 left feet...fridge style...completely stiff...
  70. I've never been to a prom or any official school functions before...
  71. But to be honest, I don't feel I've missed out on any of those things...
  72. My idea of a good time, is a few of my loved ones/friends in a beach, each holding a cup of pina coloda and just talking the night away...
  73. I love watching Johnny Depp and Edward Norton movies...but I don't think they are that attractive...
  74. I just wish they would explore more personalities instead of different characters but of same personalities : Depp, funny and quirky; Edward Norton, intelligent with duo personalities...
  75. I don't call myself a sexist...but I absolutely detest guys who thinks gals should be seen and not heard...therefore need not be knowledgeable...a gal who loves reading, doesn't make her a threat to your already dim-wit mind, you morons...
  76. Did I say 'detest??...I meant to say 'hate'...
  77. As a new-born baby, my dad welcomed me home with the biggest car one could possibly find...a lorry...
  78. Dad placed me on the passenger seat, and he had to hold me, just in case I fell over...
  79. Record time for longest meal; 3 and 1/2 hours when I was about 4 years old...I fell asleep on the sofa, with half-chewed food still in my mouth...
  80. I still take my own sweet time to eat; so my friends complain...old habits die hard...
  81. My childhood friend was a gal, who was with me everywhere I went...she disappeared when I found my real childhood friend at age 10...she still drops by occasionally...especially when I feel low or down...introducing...Marcy, a figment of my imagination...
  82. I keep an account book that records every single penny I receive/spent every single day...even till now...
  83. Many people finds that weird...
  84. I find it weird too...it doesn't go along with my compulsive personality...but money runs out of my pocket faster than I can remember...so it helps to keep a record...
  85. Believe it or not, I was once an extrovert...
  86. Now, I am completely a hermit crab...almost reclusive, except during book sales and get-togethers...
  87. I've learn the hard way, that there are times you've got to be cruel, to be kind...
  88. I can be too kind at times, I don't know it, until it kills me...
  89. I am physically inproportionate...wide shoulders, undefined waist...not-so-slim legs...but small hands and feet...
  90. I THINK I am okay with that...
  91. I never thought it would be that difficult to think out 100 things to share about myself...
  92. I am thinking that now...
  93. I can't believe I am saying this...but I miss high school...and I wanna go back...
  94. Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton scares me...
  95. I am sure you'll agree with me on that one...
  96. I think that finding a good politician, is almost as impossible as finding an honest thief...
  97. Talking about that, I never hid my dis-taste for politicians like Samy Vellu, and Syed Hamid...check #27...I am honest, as far as that is concern...
  98. I am starting to regret writing this post...it is sucking my brain cells dry...
  99. Have I shared that when my brain doesn't work, my tummy does??...Lessajinomoto hungry now...*sniff*...
  100. I never found Facebook to be fascinating!!!
There!!!...I am done!!!...I thought I will never finish...*grin*...now...mind sharing one of your own??...

You made me smile with this post Emily. Lovely insight. As an Englishman, I'm unusual in that I don't get football of any kind, not just the Premier League. It bores me senseless.
