Thanks to bleeding espresso I decided to write more about myself. She listed 100 things to know about her and shared it with others. What a wonderful idea. It would be nice to know bloggers better, it would also make the blogs more enjoyable to read.

So, here they come … 50 things to know about me, or less – I might not make it to 100, so wont even try :

  1. I am a chinese girl who lives in Medan
  2. I am 31 years old
  3. Will try my best to age gracefully
  4. I got married when I was 29
  5. My husband is Irish – American
  6. I work twice as hard because east meets west is never a simple union
  7. He works for humanitarian organisations so he travels a lot
  8. Whenever he leaves, I take up new hobbies
  9. Blogging is my newest one *crossing fingers – hoping this one lasts*
  10. I have a degree in banking and finance, with licenses for stockbroker, underwriter and fund manager, but
  11. I work at a bakery – which I co-own with a couple of others
  12. I am a baker who doesn’t bake – at all
  13. Nevertheless, I will survive
  14. My parents fight all the time, but still stay together
  15. I am very close to my parents – don’t know what I would do without them
  16. I have two siblings
  17. I don’t cook – I am trying to learn as part of my attempt to fulfil my role as a wife
  18. My husband is a great cook – thank God for that
  19. I am very forgetful – I don’t think I can recall anything up to two years ago. He calls it selective memory
  20. That is one of the reason I started this blog
  21. Goofy is my nickname from my husband – because I am really goofy and flaky
  22. I love my family
  23. That is the reason why I still stay in this city
  24. One day I would like to move and start a completely new life – hey, I only live once
  25. I wish I still keep in touch with people who had helped me in the past
  26. I solve problems by crying
  27. I hate hipocrisy – but in this wretched place, I have no other way but to accept it calmly and never let it ruin my life
  28. I have a dog, mushu, that I never walk for the past two years *making mental promise to walk him*
  29. I loved smoking – quitted successfully one year ago
  30. I am a city girl – I freaked out once when we were travelling to remote areas and lived in a wooden hut
  31. I am very attached to my phone and my computer
  32. I am on a seefood diet – when I ‘see food’, I eat them (that is my diet, as my husband describes it)
  33. I had braces when I was 26. After being dumped by a guy and he said my teeth were ugly – harsh, huh
  34. Love chick flicks!
  35. I love to read – but always forget what I have read
  36. I still make mistakes in he and she – English is not my first language
  37. Gosh, this is hard …
  38. I love good steak – but I will try to become vegetarian one day
  39. I am 100% cotton girl – no polyester and lycra, please
  40. I refuse to accept plastic bags when shopping, which sometimes create scenes when the cashiers keep insisting of giving me one
  41. I don’t like clowns – they scare the living hell out of me!
  42. I do judge book from its cover .. yup
  43. Hmmm … I think I will have to give up at 43 ..
