Tagged!! Honest Scrap Award

Sunday, March 15, 2009

I was awarded/tagged by nlng*star with the Honest Scrap Award.

“This award is bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog’s content or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant.“When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real. Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!”

10 things about me:

1) I'm a bug-o-phobic person. I'm terrified of bugs, and my dad always asks me why I'm scared because they are so tiny. I use to scream for my dad to get rid of it if I see one in the house.

2) I use to have a white grand piano when I was young, then my mom sold it because our new house couldn't fit it. I miss it... A LOTTT!!! Miss it so much that I've made it one of my life's goal... to be able to buy one for my house.

3) I *love* stilettos. I'm 5'3, which is not too short for an asian, but I still feel short. Everytime I wear heels, I always tell the boyfriend I'm taller than him, and he looks at me funny. hahaha

4) I speak Cantonese and english. My mandarin sucks although my parents sent me to Chinese school to learn mandarin. I can only understand it if you speak slow enough haha. I can't really read or write chinese very well either. People often ask me if I know Vietnamese because my last name is Viet. ... No... the only thing I know in Viet is probably a few words on a menu. haha

5) I wish I knew how to sew because I started to design stuff back in highschool, and it would be so cool to wear my own stuff =]

6) I find joy in living on my own... no mom nagging at me all the time haha. I do miss my brother though. I'm not sure if I should stay in Toronto or move back home, where I don't know anyone =[. My parents moved to another province when I was in 2nd year university, and I stayed behind to finish school.

7) I'm jealous of my brother because he is so smart, and sometimes, it makes me feel stupid. And... he's 10 years younger than me. I just found out yesterday while talking to my mom on the phone that he got into gifted school. He kind of taught himself how to read when he was 3, and now when I talk to him he uses big words on me *sigh*

8) I'm very clumsy and tend to hurt myself a lot. I always hit the door knob, hit the corner or a counter, or kick something when I walk. Sometimes I find a bruise somewhere, and I wonder how I got it. I do it so often that when I say 'ouch' the boyfriend just ignores me hahaha

9) When it comes in nail polish, french manicures are my faves. But it usually doesn't last more than a few days because any scratches or chips on done nails BOTHER me, and I just end up taking it off.

10) I love to cook, and I'm still learning, but I don't really get the chance to make things anymore because I rent, and the owner cooks for me, and on weekends, I stay at the boyfriend's place, and his mommy cooks =] I make a big mess when I do get the chance to cook. I have pots and pans everywhere and I hate cleaning it up hehe. I use to leave everything in the sink, and my mom would clean it for me haha. *so bad*

lol, I have 3/10 things (1,3,8) in common with you! 1) My mom thinks I have issues because I'm scared of bugs, so my bro or bf always have to come to my rescue. She thinks I'm to pathetic so she refuses to kill them for me... ;_;
Hmm... I was wondering if you Viet or Chinese when I swapped with you, now I know. :)
