my best friend, my travel buddy, my ajooma

i love memes! gives me a reason to think about things i would otherwise not think about. plucked this one off heather armstrong's website. though this is usually for couples, i figured i have been in a longer relationship with judy than most marriages in the states, so there! ok some questions are way too weird so im putting those bits in inverted commas. this is for the special person in my life...

What are your middle names?
Judy's middle name is Bob. Mine is soon to be Cheng ;)

How long have you been together?
we've been inseparable since swiss school so that makes 4 years *gasp*

How long did you know each other before you started "dating"?
I didn't like her for a grand total of 4 hours when she started a conversation asking how i tight my hair in a bun in the study hall. i thought she was too keen and excitable. hah! who am i to judge. but its cos of all these qualities, i love her twice as much..

Who asked whom out?
Hmmm... I guess she spoke to me first but after that, we take turns!!

How old are each of you?
i'm 27 this year and she's slightly older! but we behave like 12 year olds sometimes..

Whose siblings do you see the most?
we've hung out with judy's sister twice (yoomee) once in her absence..

Which situation is the hardest on you as a "couple"?
I think like all girly friendship, been through heaps.. a change of boyfriends, priorities in time spent with each other, conflicting work schedules. i think there was once we were mad at each other for one night and parted angrily but didn't take long for us to make up over pizzas.

Did you go to the same school?
We both graduated from Swiss Management School. graduation hats and gowns to prove!

Are you from the same home town?
No. Judy is from Korea and im from singapore..

Who is smarter?
She is. she can read recipes off the internet and pull of pseudo-homemade goodness.

Who is the most sensitive?
she is.

Where do you eat out most as a "couple"?
in switz, it was beijing town. in the states, it was mexican or chinese takeout.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a "couple"?
furthest from where i am now? New York. but we've been around switzerland, barcelona, seould, singapore, different parts of usa and plenty more exciting places to come!

Who has the craziest exes?
i won't call my exes crazy. (i know i have some reading this.. haha..) but lets just say i have more interesting tales to tell. with judy, its very straightforward. either you love each other or you not be friends at all.

Who has the worst temper?
me. she calms me down with her stories and all-so-knowing "zhingieeeee.. you know, right, you really shouldn't have.."

Who does the cooking?
Definitely Judy. she makes me bento lunch boxes all the time and when i have not seen her in ages, she will surprise me with korean sushi or kimchi friend rice (yums.. my fav)

Who is the neat-freak?
hmmm..both of us have our own quirks..

Who is more stubborn?
we both are. but im more immature. so i guess i win most of the time. (thanks judy.)

Who hogs the bed?
haha, i do. i cant help it. but thank goodness i can count the number of times we had to share a bed!!

Who wakes up earlier?
judy mostly. unless she works night shifts then she would sleep through pandi's incessant barking, which daniel finds HILARIOUS. tell him that story and he laughs uncontrollably..

Where was your first date?
must have been in cafeteria in swiss school. our first date in usa is at mario's pizza! :) love it!!

Who is more jealous?
we don't fight. we share friends.

How long did it take to get "serious"?
we were always serious with each other. why else would we end up in the same little town in usa for 2 years in our lives?

Who eats more?
me, without a doubt! im a bottomless pit.

Who does the laundry?
she does. she is much better remembering when to flip the laundry and to put dryer sheets. i always forget..

Who's better with the computer?
both equally bad. i

Who drives when you are together?
depends on whose car. i drive mine, she drives hers. we take turns to drive long dist.

Who is just got engaged and is getting married before me?
SHE IS!!!
