20 things you didn't know about me

I like to stick my tongue out when I take photos.
This is my 2nd favourite pose. I broke my front tooth (adult) once and it grew back…no kidding.
I speak English, Chinese, Hokkien, very basic Cantonese and very basic Italian.
I can swear in many more languages: Malay, Japanese, Spanish, Russian, French, Lebanese, Korean, German, Vietnamese, Behasa Indonesian.
I am an accredited professional translator (Chinese to English)
I teach translation once a week in the evening at university.
When I was about 10, I saw a man running around in flames. He was a mentally ill neighbour who set himself on fire.
I am so vain I’ll happily look at myself in the mirror for hours. I appeared on TV on a talent show when I was a little girl.
I appeared on a newspaper once for the same reason.
I used to collect Barbie dolls; I have about 50 of them in my Singapore home.
I grew up with a lot of pets: dogs, cats, chicken, rabbits, white mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, birds, caterpillars (I wanted to watch them change into pretty butterflies), ferret, fish, tortoise. If I can be an animal, I would like to be a bird so I can randomly poop on people I don’t like.
My favourite reality show is “America’s Next Top Model”.
“Farmer wants a Wife” comes a close second.
I love happy endings, even when it’s cheesy and predictable.
I am really classy when drunk. I prefer juice to soft drinks of any kind.
I seek comfort in fast food, especially Macdonalds and KFC, because that’s what I used to get as a special treat when I was a little girl.

Just how anonymous are you, anonymous? You got me curious!

LEon said...

You really know how to have fun even in writing. I wonder where you pick up all the international swearing. On TV?

trishiekoh said...

Leon, everytime i meet someone from a different country, i ask them 2 things:
1. how do you say "hello" in your language?
2. can you teach me to swear in your language?
You'd be suprised how obliging people are.

Great post! You don't have to wait to be tagged for one of those "memes" to list things about yourself.

Couple years back, I saw a blog entry -in someone's blog I seriously cannot remember now- featuring her "Timelife". Been meaning to do that, but who'd be interested (about me)?! Ha.
