1. What makes you cry?
Knowing my loved ones are sad makes me cry. When I was pregnant, everything made me cry. Sad stories, unfairness in the world, when someone dies, when my girls won’t stop crying…..Someone once said that when God was giving out sensitivity and emotional pills, he accidentally gave me an overdose (and my husband will attest to this) and I said, well, better to feel than to be a cold turkey!
2. What is your favourite movie of all time?
Hmmm…..Beaches (Bette Midler) for friendship, When A Man Loves A Woman (Andy Garcia) for love, Stepmom (Susan Sarandon) for Mom’s cancer, Gone With the Wind for romance, Annie for my childhood…..shit, I just love too many movies! Moving on….
3. What songs genre do you enjoy?
80s without a doubt
4. What was the stupidest thing you’ve done when you were so terribly in love?
Gave up a 1 month architectural field trip to India to be with my then boyfriend in London instead. And thus till today, I’ve never been to India and possibly never will! What a fool!
5. When did you get married?
When I was 28 years old.
6. Where did you get married?
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in one of the oldest hotels within the Golden Triangle; and I also got registered at Thean Hou Temple although I’m Christian. For that day, I was Buddhist 🙂 It was a great wedding!!! And we’d like to do it again someday, just an excuse for another great party!
7. Which physical feature do you like best about yourself?
I shudder every time I look into the mirror so it’ll have to be my heart and my brain.
8. What is your typical breakfast like?
Coffee or Milo with oatmeal, home baked bread and butter, fruit salad, muesli with fruit or cornflakes.
9. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Hahaha….before I had Tee, about 80 pairs but my feet grew after pregnancy so I gave half away to my aunt and cousins of the same sized feet. Just before I became pregnant with T2, I gave another 20 pairs away short of the designer labels (of which many are in perfect condition as I hardly used them). I just cannot bare giving those away yet….they serve as a memory of my corporate working life! Although truth be told, I’ll probably never wear them again as I can’t even fit into half of them! Yet, who’s going to pay me RM1,000 for a pair of Chanel shoes when I bought them for RM3,000? My Mom knows I’m crazy. I have pictures of them all and one day I shall post them up for you to see 🙂 And if you’re wondering why I have photos of them all, it’s because I printed the photos out to stick onto the shoe boxes so I could see them easily in deciding which pair of shoes to wear!
My Chanel Shoes – anybody wanna buy? Size 6 – but if anyone wants to buy me some new shoes now, it would be size 7 to 7.5 depending on cut.
10. What kind of books do you enjoy reading?
I read generally everything as I have a broad interest. It’s more what I don’t read i.e. Mills & Boons and romance stories bore me to tears. I like thrillers, sci-fi, supernatural, biographies, philosophies (gosh, I was forced to read so much of THAT at University!!! You know, they are so hard to read and I had to read every paragraph like three times or more before I could even comprehend what they were getting at!)), real life stories, childrens books, you name it…….
