Thank you Jlow for tagging me.
Well, this will keep my readers busy (as if) keeping up with my blog over the weekend.
The rules for this meme are easy:
1. Link to the person that tagged you. (done above)
2. Post the rules on your blog. (done here)
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself. (will do below)
4. Tag someone:
So here goes:
1. I am a right-hander but can do a few things relatively well with my left:
write, play badminton, send an sms and use a spoon to feed myself or the boys.
2. I have short-sightedness and quite bad astigmatism.
I was prescribed to wear glasses since 7 years old but only wore a pair all day long from age 10. I love reading in bed, and that apparently is the main cause of bad eye-sight. Of course there is also the genetic factor. Wonder if Lasik will really work for me. Scary. Might go blind instead.
3. I have very pampered feet.
Since I stopped teaching 8 years ago I have only put on high heels for dinner functions, namely wedding dinners, and even then my feet would protest. From the time I was pregnant with Micah, I have only worn ladies slippers (nice proper ones, presentable enough for weddings and dinners), sandals, sports shoes, and water-proof slip-ins for walking around the neighbourhood. I still keep 2 pairs of nice proper shoes in the shoe cabinet, but doubt I'll ever want to put them on: a) my wedding shoes, ivory in colour; b) black court shoes, 1.5 inch high.
4. I like all colors, ...
...but find "lime green" especially lovely and refreshing. I used to have reservation about wearing the colour red, but now not too bad.
5. I have this "bad" habit of starting on a few chores all at once and slowly tying the ends.
This is because I feel I can't waste time just standing around waiting for the water to boil (in kettle or pot), as well as filling up the filtered-water container, so I will:
-pour filtered water into kettle/pot to boil;
-put on water to boil, and the filter on to refill the container;
-run up to put a batch of laundry into the machine/fill up the water-jug in our room;
-(while upstairs) check what I need to bring down, i.e. trash, folded clothes (boys'), used cups, extra buckets from downstairs' bathroom, etc.
-go back to the water section to finish off by filling flasks/making tea/ cooking noodle.
6. I am a magpie.
I have so much of useless earthly possessions in my mum's house and also here that if I were to die suddenly I think the people left behind will take forever to clear my stuff, namely because they are stashed everywhere. What earthly possessions you wonder:
-old pen-pals letters from when I was 12 and letters, cards, notes and bookmarks from friends;
-photographs in a few shoe boxes;
-tonnes of knick-knacks;
-loads of "useless" books, those that I collected over time from Uni days while studying and working on my thesis;
-files from study notes to working "practical/useful/self-improvement" notes;
-old medals from school and Uni days, namely for swimming events;
-stationery stuff in different boxes and pencil cases from different stages of school, work and homes, plus my collection of pencils and stickers.
-... (shan't burden you with more of my "trash")
Have a good weekend! :)
