Jenn from frmheadtotoe did her list of 15 weird facts about herself. Well, here’s mine so you can know me beyond my beauty product reviews and makeup tips! Heh heh. =D

 

#1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?

This is how ‘da’ is written in Chinese.

I am the eldest of 4 children in our family, so my siblings call me ‘da’, which is a short form for ‘da jie’ (Chinese), meaning eldest sister.

The Boyfriend, who will be family some day, calls me ‘BunBunMakeupTips’ ever since I started this blog. Lol.

 

#2. What’s a weird habit of yours?

HAHA! I was doing the weird habit the moment I read this question.

I like to look up at my bangs for no reason.

 

#3. Do you have any weird phobias?

I have an indescribable fear of mannequins. I always dream of them coming alive and chasing me with their long, plastic legs down a deserted, dimly lit alley. Yucks! Thinking of it makes me shiver. I try not to enter shops with too many mannequins.

I went to Google ‘fear of mannequins’ and out came Pediophobia.

Pediophobia is a fear of dolls or, more generally, of “false representation of sentient beings” such as mannequins or robots. The word is derived from the Greek word paidion, meaning “little child”. – Wikipedia

But I’m not afraid of dolls or robots. Just mannequins. Especially bald ones. X(

 

#4. What’s a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you’re alone?

‘They don’t really care about us’ by Michael Jackson, although I can barely sing it. Enunciating the words (badly) is one thing, getting the accent (quite impossible) is another thing, but it’s the emotions that MJ put into the song that is perfectly inimitable.

 

#5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?

People who stand on the right of the escalator. It becomes a super big pet peeve when my train is coming and the people standing on the right in front of me don’t want to move, simply because their train on the opposite platform is not here. GAH!

#6. What’s one of your nervous habits?

I find myself pinching my thigh a lot when I’m nervous. Or twisting my fingers.

 

#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?

In the centre, I guess. I sleep on a single bed and my left and right sides are filled with things like pillow, bolster, stuffed animals, jacket, etc.

 

#8. What was your first stuffed animal & it’s name?

I cannot remember the very first one but I remember I had a fluffy snow man for a very long time. My sister and I both had one and there was a tag that said ‘Frosty’. My sister named hers, um, ‘Frosty’, so I named my ‘Snowy’. How original.

If I could name it now, it’d be called ‘very-hugable-fat-snowman-with-a-tiny-creepy-smile’.

 

#9. What’s the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?

I’m not into coffee, it makes my body shiver and my heart pound like crazy. Even though I’m generally not a fan of anything that contains caffeine, I’ll order tea when there are only 2 options – coffee or tea. I like green tea though, so anything that has green tea goes. Green tea doesn’t make me tremble.

Actually I like teh-geh-si, which is milk tea plus carnation milk. You’ll only get to drink it in this part of the world. =D

 

#10. What’s the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?

I actually took the longest to think of an answer for this question. Honestly couldn’t think of any because I only recommend what I truly believe in and do it myself.

 

#11. Which way do you face in the shower?

All directions. If someone took a video of it and played it in fast forward, I’d be doing excellent spins. But that’s totally pervertic to have someone do that. =S

 

#12. Do you have any ‘weird’ body ‘skills’?

I can sit with my toes behind me. Like…. a frog. Each leg on each side has the inner part of the thigh in direct contact with the floor. I can sit this way for a very long time.

 

#13. What’s your favorite ‘comfort food’/food thats ‘bad’ but you love to eat it anyways?

CHICKEN WINGS.

When I was in secondary school, I’d buy 3-5 chicken wings and put the bag of piping hot wings in my pocket and go for morning assembly. I’d eat them when I got back to the classroom. Sometimes however, assembly would get held up by *yawnz* announcements or caning sessions, so my thigh would be burning from the wings.

 

#14. What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?

“OKIE LAH/LOR/LEH/MAH”

 

#15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?

Large t-shirt and shorts. And ear plugs.

 

Okie! Now I tag YOU! Write 15 Weird Facts about yourself on your blog and link it back here so I can know more about you too! =D

    Oh my god! Finally someone who understands why people should not stand on the right on escalators!!! it pisses me off especially when couples stand next to each other and ignore the people behind them! urghh.

      Worse still, when they are acting all cuddly and kissing and you just want to pass, and politely say ‘excuse me’, they have the cheek to TSK loudly at you! >.<"

        YES!!! I simply can’t stand it. It’s common courtesy you know! I don’t know when Singaporeans will understand that escalators are not places for PDA. And I don’t think it is that DIFFICULT to keep to your left right? I mean, how lazy can you get!
