meme:: get your freak on

earlier this week, i was watching a make-up tutorial channel, jen from head to toe when i saw this tag and even though its a little old, i thought it was fun to do! 

:: here are the questions ::

one - what's a nickname only your family calls you?

my dear grandpapa, who was a huge fan of the little me, used to call me "ma lai gai" (malay chicken in cantonese). the malay is not a racist comment but an actual breed of chicken found in southeast asia. they're tinier, tougher but very fiesty.

two - what's a weird habit of yours?

i LOVE bubble wrap. obsessed. i hid a bale of bubble wrap under my work desk. one day, my co-worker told me how he knew i was having a bad day was when he hears the discreet but unmistakable popping sound from under my table. then he knows not to bother me. lol.


three - do you have any weird phobias?

its not weird. but im afraid of being alone. until very recently, i've not had a solo meal. but been there, done that. next up, solo movie & solo vacation. not looking forward to those.



four - what's a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you're alone?


oh i don't do it secretly... i do that all the time! :) i belt out the cheesiest boy band songs out of the blue. oh did i tell you im a major musical dork? and a professional disney tunes singer? 

five - what's one of your biggest pet peeves?

im a fussy person so i have tonnes!! but if i had to think of one... i HATE the use of the word "cum". especially when its misused, makes me shudder just thinking of it. why do people use such ugly words? i also don't get "bang for your buck". yuckness.

six - what's one of your nervous habits?


see answer for (two). that and i talk. a lot.

seven - what side of the bed do you sleep on?


in short, wall side. in long, i wrote about it here!

eight - what was your first stuffed animal & it's name?

i had a sheep from sydney and a bear from melbourne that dad got for me. their names were.. wait for it... sydney and melbourne! very creative. 

sidenote:: the husband has identified that "melbourne" was in fact a bear wearing an essendon bombers jersey. 

nine - what's the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?

cappucino or chai tea latte. sometimes iced tea. never the crazy fancy flavors we get here in japan! mango jello in an avocado blend. urm. no thanks.

ten - what's the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?


removing your make up before your go to bed is a good one.

eleven - which way do you face in the shower?


wait i don't get the question. i face the shower head when im washing my front. and face away from the shower head when im washing my butt. does that make sense?

twelve - do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?

im ultra flexible. im very bendy in my legs and back. its a great post yoga conversation starter...

thirteen - What's your favorite 'comfort food'/food thats 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?

i indulge in instant ramen ALL THE TIME. its so good and so bad at the same time...


fourteen - what's a phrase or exclamation you always say?

O.M.G. and "superduper" and "that's craycray!"


fifteen - time to sleep - what are you ACTUALLY wearing?

my jammies! im a cotton flannel cosy comfy p-jammy girl.  

it'll be fun if you wanna get your freak on too! drop me a note (and link) if you get to it! 
i'd love to know the freaky you better! :)
