Tag–Get to Know Me!

tag get to know me

Steph over at Canadian Beauty Reviews tagged me and I thought this one seemed fun to do. Oh, and there’s some malware issue with Shabby Blogs so that’s why I had to change my layout to this nature theme. Hopefully it gets resolved soon…anyway here we go!

11 Facts About Me

1. I’m Chinese, but was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and moved to Canada when I was five.

2. What I consider to be my most ridiculous purchase to date is the limited edition Battlestar Galactica toaster that was featured on Big Bang Theory. With brokerage fees and duty, I think I paid close to $200 for a toaster that I think is so awesome because it brands your toast with a Cylon on one side and the words “FRAK OFF” on the other.

3. I love to read and I’m on Goodreads if anybody wants to be in a book club! I love reading fantasy, sci-fi, chick lit and of course the latest in young adult fantasy.

4. I went bungee-jumping in Japan when I was 14.

5. I own complete seasons of Star Trek: Voyager, The Next Generation and Family Guy.

6. I’ve been playing classical violin for 20 years.

7. My middle name in Chinese means “snowy smile” in English.

8. I’ve always wanted to have mixed children (and now I just might!)

9. I never learned how to swim…

10. I love old school computer games from the 90s like “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?”, “King’s Quest”, “Space Quest”, “Monkey Island” and “Myst”.

11. I’m petrified of planning my own wedding!

    1. My fiance thinks I was a spud in a past life. I AM a potato. I have such a weakness for them. As for the tattoos, one is on my back and it's my last name in Chinese characters and the other is a blue snowflake on my hip to represent my middle name!

    1. I got all of the Monkey Islands from the Steam holiday sale in December and I enjoyed EVERY minute of gameplay! I couldn't afford to have the whole series growing up and now that I'm an adult and the games are cheap, I'm in heaven!

    1. It's not very common...people are always surprised to learn that about me. I'm putting my kids in swimming lessons right away so they don't end up like me!

  7. This was really awesome to read since I love getting to know people better.
    I was a little shocked to see you haven't learned to swim, but hey, I still haven't learned to ride a bike. It's also great to see the shows you like since I like most of them too. Though Game of Thrones is addicting, it does upset me a lot. They're killing off characters like there's no tomorrow!

    1. I know, I blame my parents for not putting me into swimming lessons...my kids will know how to do everything! GoT upsets me too! If I'm feeling PMS-ey I can't watch it because I get so sad!
