Yay! I got an award! Thank you Brandy at Busted Budget for nominating me for this award! 🙂
Here are 7 NEW interesting things about me that I have not shared with you before:
#1: English is my second language.
I came to Canada when I was 7 years old. I also speak fluently in Cantonese and Mandarin (more fluent in Cantonese than mandarin). I knew some basic “British” English like asking someone if I could borrow their rubber (erasers). So if my writing doesn’t make sense….it could be my ESL English so please bear with me! 😀
#2: I still sleep with a stuffy. Don’t judge! 😀
I could easily sleep with a pillow or a bolster or even a maternity pillow, but I still like to sleep with a stuffy where I can wrap my arms around it.
#3: I have never went to a Sleepover Party. I never EVER slept over at a friend’s house in elementary and high school.
I had VERY VERY protective parents. No sleepovers allowed at ANY friend’s house. E.V.E.R.
#4: I gave almost penny I earned to my parents throughout University: summer jobs and part time jobs.
I would cash in my paychecks, keep $200 a month and give the rest to my parents. In return, my parents paid off all my student loans that I have taken out for my education. I lived at home with meals provided.
#5: I fought with my parents to move out.
At the age of 25, I rebelled against my parents and moved out of the house (yes, it was a late rebellious stage). At the time, I still gave my parents almost everything I earned from my regular part-time job and I picked up more part-time jobs so I can start saving money. I was not financially independent. My parent’s didn’t want me to move out AT ALL. They wanted me to live at home until I get married, but I wanted a taste of what it is like to be independent.
#6: I love visiting McDonald’s and take pictures of their menus when I visit a different city / town.
I just find that McDonalds have different items at all over the world! I love the black seasme soy drink they have in Hong Kong. I love the spam and egg with rice as the Big Breakfast in Hawaii. Nom Nom Nom.
#7: When I travel to Hong Kong, I will book a 5-star hotel to AVOID seeing any cockroaches.
Yes, I am TERRIFIED of roaches and if I see them in my hotel room, I will NOT be able sleep and will be keeping an eagle eye out for any roaches. Shudders
I am also terrified of Spiders… UGGHHH…
