5 Strange(?) Facts About Myself

My very first Tag. This isn't going to be easy, I tend to consider myself a straightforward, what-you-see-is-what-you-get sort of person, brought up in a very ordinary manner and thus living life in a similarly ordinary manner. We'd see how this goes... :)
  • I get nauseous whenever I smell lilies, been like that ever since going to the funeral of a good friend who passed some years ago. She'd been a popular person and the parlour was stuffed full of the disgusting flowers and even the casket was draped with them. Since then, l've likened lilies to the smell of death.

  • The sound of ice cubes clinking in a glass irks me, especially if it's not my own glass.

  • I have 4 different yet distinct handwriting styles, depending on time of day, my prevailing mood and type of writing implement used.

  • I am but a 2 minute stroll to the peppery crabs of Eng Seng Restaurant on Joo Chiat Place, widely acknowledged to be one of the finest dishes in this land of ours, as evidenced by the long midweek queues which form from 5pm onwards. They are usually sold out before 9pm everyday. But yet, I have never been and absolutely have no yearning to patronise the place even though I consider myself a lover of pepper crab.

  • As a child, I used to break into my aunt's cosmetic drawer when she was out and plyed my face with every single eye shadow, blush, lipstick, foundation etc... I could get hold of. Oftentimes layering different types of makeup on top of another. I remember looking like a child transvestite with a bad makeup day. It's a wonder I grew up to be the man I am today. :)
I'm suppose to tag 5 others but being kinda new to the blogging scene, I don't think I know enough! How about 2 instead?

Child transvestite - HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I also have several distinct handwriting styles, depending on my mood and yes, writing implement.

The crabs at Eng Seng are really that good. Definitely should give a try seeing how close you live to the coffeeshop.


Sorry dude, only just responded to your tag. :)
