11 Random Facts About Myself (That I think Most People Do Not Know About… Yet)

This photo needs more ketchup!

1. I love ketchup. I cannot live without ketchup in my life. I can consume ten sachets of ketchup for one burger.

2. When I’m sad and feeling lonely, I get up and go to the nearest book store to buy a book. That’s a sure fire way to cheer myself up.

3. I’m very short, and truth be told, I sometimes I feel insecure about it. Especially because I enjoy modeling and posing for the cameras, and height is always a factor. But then again, I’ve gotten used to it and think it’s an asset than a liability. Being short has also pushed me to exercise at least fifteen to twenty minutes a day. It’s just so difficult to be short and fat.

I love my ice cream melted, thank you very much.

4. I’m cold-intolerant, and I don’t sweat as much compared to other people during sweltering days. With that said, I don’t drink cold water. I also don’t enjoy food that is too cold or too hot, just like Goldilocks. :)

5. I’m sentimental. And like most sentimental people, I’m a pack rat. I hold on to things and memories that doesn’t serve me anymore.

6.  I don’t find the need to drive, but I understand the need to learn the skill. I’m just not the type who’d drive for myself when I can get someone else to do it. I enjoy looking at the surroundings or sleeping during the trip.

2011 Planner~

7. I don’t keep a diary or a planner, but I always have a small notebook and a pen with me, and before the year ends, I make it a point to buy myself a new one.

Having a fun buffet experience with friends > Going to the beach. What summer body?

8. The beach isn’t my first choice of destination for the summer. I’d rather go for activities within the metro, and go places that doesn’t consume too much time. I will choose the pool over the beach any day.

9. People are almost always surprised to find out that I met 2/2 of my past boyfriends online. What? I spend a lot of time online :)) Now I’m alone, and this is why I love workdays. I don’t have trouble sleeping at night because I’m so tired when I get home. I don’t have to be plagued by self-defeating thoughts like never finding another person who’ll love me as much as the first one did, or never finding another person who I’ll love as much as my second one. Now I’m just happy to not be feeling anything and at the same time, scared that I will find someone who will love me so much and who I will love so much.

Happy Lemon’s Cocoa and Rocksalt and Cheese~

10. I love having NYFD fries when I watch movies in the cinemas. And a Large Cocoa with Rocksalt and Cheese from Happy Lemon, please.

11. One of the anime characters I can closely relate to is Mirai Kuriyama from the anime series Kyoukai no Kanata. It’s funny because she rants a lot on her blog as well! But in one episode, I was reminded of the real reason why I blog: and that’s to share and spread the happy memories I’ve made. It’s not always going to be easy and fun, but when I’ve earned those good times, I’m not going to keep it to myself. I will make sure to share it to the world!

Yes, especially when there’s free food involved. :P

Here’s my answer to Roch’s 11 Questions:

1. Where do you want to travel next? Definitely Thailand. I’m going there with my best friend for our joint birthday celebration! Can’t wait to try all the uber spicy and authentic Thai dishes!
2. What’s your top three most favorite restaurants? Silom Thai, Masuki in Binondo, and Ramen Nagi.
3. Are you afraid of ghosts? Yes, but I haven’t seen any, so…
4. If you have a billion dollars, what would you do with it? Invest it in a business, and retire.
5. What are you most grateful for? I’m most grateful for the opportunities that come my way, thanks to blogging. Even my current job was a big factor in bagging me the position.
6. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? My best friend.
7. What are some of your hobbies? Blogging (duh.), Cosplaying (still!)
8. What is one habit you want to break? Shifting from one career to another just because I can.
9. Would you rather yourself be less attractive and extremely intelligent or extremely attractive and less intelligent? Both can make you money, but only one will last. So I say, less attractive and extremely intelligent.
10. What is the best gift you’ve ever given? I pay for my mom’s insurance to give her peace of mind. So that’s probably the best gift I can give her.

      Hi Shane! Looks like you won’t be joining any Fear Factor-themed contests in the future with the random facts that you mentioned! Also, you’re just like my best friend who doesn’t like sweets but loves chocolate!

      About your Alopecia, how is Alopecia Areta different from just Alopecia? I’ve also written a review of Novuhair before, you might want to read my review and give that product a try. It’s a little pricey but it might help with your hair loss problem just like it did with mine :D http://dollhana.com/?s=novuhair

        Alopecia totalis which is hair loss is gradual form is often a continuation of patchy hair loss
        and Alopecia universalis this is the most advanced form of alopecia. This disorder involves the loss of body hair, scalp hair and eyelashes. I will try Novuhair i hope it will help my condition! Thank you HANA! :)

      Hi Aegeane! I met you already so I can say that you should push for your dreams to join beauty pageants. You’re so pretty, and I’m sure you’ll be able to wow them with your talents. And I highly suggest you start blogging TODAY! A hobby like blogging shouldn’t have to wait until after college! Besides, it will help you a lot when you go job-hunting. Think of it as a portfolio of sorts.
