7 random things about me

It’s kinda fun… being tagged by fellow food bloggers, especially a newbie like me. I was first tagged by Nora of Life’s Smörgåsbord for 7 things about me, then by Little corner of mine for My Favourite Food (I’m still trying figure out what is my favourite food).

Hmm…so 7 random things about me… that should be so simple isn’t it… not. The funny thing is that everything about you seem so natural that you can hardly think of anything worth mentioning. Here’s some random stuff that I could came up with about myself:

I hate HATE spiders, even the smallest makes my skin crawl. It’s so bad for me that even the thought or mention of it gives me the shivers. I think it must be that day that I walked home from school and out of nowhere dropped this huge spider onto my skirt (back then Singapore still had quite some jungle). I flipped my skirt several times in vain to get rid of it. I was scared to death and was jumping like a mad monkey on fire with no one to help me. Eventually, I managed to get it off, unfortunately the fear for spider is still well ingrained in my brain since then.

I got my driving license in France. I surprised everyone including my driving school by getting my road code at the first sitting (given that I only learned French for about 2½ years and had limited vocabulary and understanding). I was told that this is the most difficult to pass than getting the license itself because the questions in the test are very tricky and sometimes ambiguous and that some only got it after the 5th attempt (France has to got one of the toughest driving exam on this planet).

I was 9 months pregnant when I sat for my year-end exams, worrying about going into labour right in the middle of my paper. Apparently I was not the only one as all the professors and my fellow classmates were joking about me giving birth right there and then 😁. Everything went well and our little girl came 4 days after my last paper. What a good timing!🙂

I can fall asleep anywhere without a problem even with lights on. Once inside a nightclub, my friends came back from the dance floor and found me asleep on a couch. I used to have a tendency to fall asleep in front people if the conversation was too boring but I have since mastered the art of staying awake through an endless and senseless monologue.

I just got my Licence (bachelor’s degree) in Langues Etrangères Appliquées (foreign languages) specialising in International Business.

I love gardening. I have a chili padi plant, curry plant and Kamquat and some other flowery plants in my house. So far I haven’t had any success in planting a pandan plant at home.

I almost won the first prize at 4D lottery (a Singaporean lottery where you have to pick 4 single-digit numbers). I had a sudden vision of the number ‘130’ flashing in front of me when my mom told me she was going to buy 4D but for the life of me I couldn’t figure out how to draw up the 4th number as I saw only 3. So I just picked the 4th at random to complete. When I told my sis and Pierre about it, they told me: Very simple just add a zero in front of 130. So simple yet I never thought of it. The very next day, I checked the papers and the winning number was 0130 😥. Sadly since that day, I never had any of those flashes again.
