50 Things

A confession here. I had a line up of topics I wanted to write about but for now, they're too heavy to deal with whilst balancing revisions for my EC papers. So, I decided to 'tag myself' and copy this 50 things meme from Jared

  1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? According to mum, I was named after Joanna, one of the few women named in the Bible who had no significant role as a great leader but yet was mentioned for her faithfulness to Jesus. My chinese name was inspired from her favourite author at the time, Han Su Yin. Gee, it's too bad I only inherited her name and not the gift of the pen....
  2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? about 15 minutes ago watching Marley and me. 
  3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Yup.
  4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? I don't really like meat....will tofu meat do?
  5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? If my many dolls count then yes.....
  6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I think so.
  7. DO YOU USE SARCASM? When I'm in a bad mood then yes. 
  8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yup. 
  9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? One of the items on my top 10 list of things to do before I die. 
  10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Anything with berries and fruits and flakes. 
  11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Nope. Just cause I don't like touching my shoelaces when I next wear my shoes....Yea, I'm weird that way. 
  12. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Must I really choose ONLY ONE.....? That'll be green tea ice cream till the next best thing comes along..
  13. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Their fingers... and teeth. Everything else comes secondary..or tertiary in this case *shrugs
  14. RED OR PINK? Red's the sexiest colour on earth in my opinion, it's the colour of love, passion,danger and life....especially this shade that the in-house designer Josh calls Valentine Red...I guess the name says it all. 
  15. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? My insecurity. How I spend 90% of the time doubting myself and then spend the remaining 10% of the time convincing myself I'm not good enough. 
  16. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? My grandpa
  17. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO COMPLETE THIS LIST? It's a free world..
  18. WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Erm, grey shorts and lime green flip flops...
  19. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? Diana Krall - Crazy
  20. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? White because it neutralizes everything....and doesn't clash with anything either...
  21. FAVORITE SMELLS? 
  22. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? The boy because I was being difficult..
  23. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? Gymnastics? 
  24. HAIR COLOR? Black.
  25. EYE COLOR? Brown.
  26. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? I don't like the idea of poking something into my eye...so no. Besides, people mistake me for a 15 year old so maybe glasses will make me look older...(just wait till I'm 35 and decide to want to look younger)
  27. FAVORITE FOOD? Anything that's spicy and sour. I.e Asam Laksa. Oh, and anything Italian too. 
  28. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? I'm still afraid there might be monsters under my bed and in my closet..so I guess the answer's self evident
  29. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? Marley and me. (The dog's really the star in this one)
  30. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? Greenish, turqoise-ish...
  31. SUMMER OR WINTER? Winter. We have summer here all year long anyway...
  32. HUGS OR KISSES? Hugz...coz I'm a snuggly wuggly kinda person. 
  33. MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND? I don't intend on tagging anyone ..
  34. LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND? same as Ques 33....
  35. WHAT BOOK(S) ARE YOU READING NOW? The Pact by Jodi Picoult and Not Without My Sister by Kristina & Celeste Jones, & Juliana Buhring....and yeap, I enjoy switching in between few books per time....I'm fickle minded that way.
  36. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? I don't use one although my last one was shaped like an apple :D
  37. WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON TV LAST NIGHT? Hardly watch TV these days, but I did watch A Passage to India on DVD last night....
  38. FAVORITE SOUND(S)? Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Diana Krall, Sondre Lorche, Josh Groban, Il Divo, Taylor Swift, Jason Mraz, recently John Mayer and this could go on and on and on....
  39. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Beatles win hands down. 
  40. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? In the ethereal land that we drift to in sleep? Home is only always a telephone call away so I guess I've never really been far away..
  41. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? I prefer to think of myself as a jack of all trades, master of none...
  42. WHERE WERE U BORN? Ipoh, land of beansprouts, white coffee and I'm sure we're famous for something else but for now Michelle Yeoh..
  43. WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING?Anyone who decides to do this. It's 50 random yet interesting things that helps summarize you...
  44. HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR SPOUSE or SIGNIFICANT OTHER? A knock-out combo of bossy attitude and microwaved spaghetti bolognese...*wink*
  45. WHAT IS YOUR SIGN? Cancer or Dragon....sheesh...water and fire..it's no wonder I'm always in a muddle...
  46. IF YOU COULD SIT DOWN TO DINNER WITH 7 PEOPLE WHO WOULD THEY BE? Top on the list would be both my grandmothers, a guy named Ernest, grandpa and family. I'd want that dinner to last forever which might never be enough to fill in the empty spaces left behind but I guess that's the stuff that dreams are made of.....Oh well....
I have no idea what happened to number 47, 48, 49 and 50 but I do think that 46 things are enough for now ..don't you? 
If you have the time, fill this list up and be sure to let me know..

Goodnight

You forgot Pokok Demokrasi! Together with all the attached heartache and instability, of course. XD
