Not-so-FAQ

I normally don’t engage in this sort of thing, but I thought this was an interesting game to participate in. If you want to give it a try, read the instructions below (I’ll post up your questions in the comment window). Many thanks and big love to Rei for the mondo-cool grilling session.

1. If you could have chosen your own nationality, what would you have chosen to be and why? (Hint: Anything BUT Malaysian, because you already are one :D)
Yes you must have seen this one coming… I admit that it would be interesting to live up to the pseudo-Japanese hype. It’s a fascination with the language and its people: the orderliness, the creativity, the genius, the bow. British comes a close second; they generally come across as a lovely bunch who don’t cut queues.

2. Self-renovation time: you have the ability to change any three things about yourself. What are you going to make over?
It would be so beauty-queen-like to say that I wouldn’t change anything, and that’s boring. So I would do something about
- My godawful habit of procrastination (which ironically is the driving force behind this blog)
- My compulsive-obsessive tendencies
- My parallel parking skills

3. Davina, you're my Malaysian Idol. What three songs would you have sung in the finals, in the event you'd actually made it that far?
Why thank you, Rei. And you're my Filipino Fairy.
I’m not sure if this is a question based on my current vocal capabilities or if I’m allowed to imagine beyond, but my three choices as a diva would be:
Karyn White’s ‘Superwoman’ (the song I had aspired to sing as a twelve-year-old dying to enter Asia Bagus)
Anastacia’s ‘Not That Kind’
Incognito’s ‘Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing’

Realistically speaking:
Alanis Morisette’s ‘You Oughta Know’
Dakota Moon’s ‘A Promise I Make’
Still sticking to ‘Return of the Space Cowboy’ or anything else by Jamiroquai

If all else fails:
Yellow Submarine
The Hamster Song
Prodigy’s ‘Firestarter’

4. Funny girl, what one thing or situation or person has the power to make you sad?
Ignorance. One form that makes me deliriously sad is people not taking animal rights seriously. Just because they don’t have a voice to bitch doesn’t make them any less significant.

5. What are the three things you will believe in, no matter what?
- Saying no to drugs, ciggies, alcohol or sex before marriage, and still lead a kick@ss life
- What goes around comes around
- God is waaay too big to fit into one religion.


Now, for the Official Interview Game Rules:

1. If you want to participate, leave a comment below saying “interview me.”
2. I will respond by asking you five questions - each person’s will be different.
3. You will update your journal/blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Ifran,
No worries, if you like you can save yourself the trouble of creating a blog and just post your answers up here in this comment window.
my questions for you are:

1. You're a seriously a witty fellow. Who do you think is the greatest stand-up comedian of all time and would you ever consider taking it up yourself?
2. If you were featured in the newspapers, what would it be about, and what would the headline be?
3. Why do you think cats meow and dogs bark?
4. What is the biggest compromise you have ever made in life?
5. If IFRAN was an acronym for a new cult, what would it stand for?

Blake,
You took me by surprise! I was thinking the exact same thing. You're such a gem, glad to know I've got a homie.

burn666,
i would like to ask you:
1. Is there any one incident that made you think that the world is officially f***ed up?
2. If you had the chance to have your own platoon, what would morning training consist of?
3. In your opinion or from what you have experienced, what is the biggest misconception about Eurasians?
4. Finish this sentence: "I would not be here today if it weren't for my..."
5. A girl confesses to you in person that she has had the biggest crush on you for the longest time. You never knew, neither is the feeling mutual. How do you respond without making it sound too harsh on her?

I'd like to be interviewed! Although my answers are usually stupid. Oh well!!

aslage,

i'm sure your answers won't be silly, and i'm never one to judge :) i would like to ask you:

1) Congrats on the birth of your sister's new girl - she's flippin' gorgeous (can refer to both mom and daughter :P). What's the coolest thing about being a mom and an aunt?

2) What was the first thing that came into your head when you woke up today?

3) Name 3 songs that best summarize your life right now.

4) An uncle on his deathbed leaves a million dollars in your possesion, and asks you to promise to use *all* the money to continue investing in his extensive Ferrari collection. You make that promise, and he breathes his last breath with a smile on his face. A few days after he passes on, you come to know of an urgent national plea for to help a foreign country on the brink of death from starvation, and needs a minimum of a million dollars to survive. You made a pledge to your uncle, but donations are coming in too slowly for the country to survive. What will you do with the money?

5) In your hands, lays the Book of All The Knowledge In The Universe. What would the first line say, and what will you do with this Book?

Good answers on question number 5. That means you start drinking, smoking and having sex AFTER marriage? :P -just kidding! No seriously..that alone tells how strong of a personality you are..that you don't need this bulls..h and still have fun. Really proud of you :D.

Good to know that I am not the only "mother" here....(blinks to aslage ;)) Cute baby niece you have :)

Ursula,
of course i have time for you :) hope you and small are doing great... it's been 14 months already?!? i'd like to ask you...

1. As she grows up and learns more about the world, what are your biggest hopes, fears and dreams for Melissa?

2. If there were 25 hours in a day, what would you devote the extra hour to?

3. What was the last dream you had - what was it about and what do you think it meant?

4. You get a parcel in the mail, you open it and it's a cellular phone. It rings the moment you hold it, and you answer. Who is on the other end and what is the call for?

Oh man..sorry it took so long. I totally forgot that I still own you the answers. So I take it short.
--------------------------------
1. As she grows up and learns more about the world, what are your biggest hopes, fears and dreams for Melissa?
---------------------------------
My biggest hopes for her are of course that she will be a very happy positive thinking person. No need to be perfect..become a famous star..just be good, do good and be satisfied with her life. My biggest fear is..of course that she will get into a deadly accident or gets abused or killed by someone..which really happens a lot in Europe.
---------------------------------
2. If there were 25 hours in a day, what would you devote the extra hour to?
---------------------------------
For doing sports???? I really should work out
---------------------------------
3. What was the last dream you had - what was it about and what do you think it meant?
---------------------------------
Oh the last dream I had..hmmm takes hard time thinking coz I totally didn't sleep well the last few days. But one of the most rememorable dreams I had lately was that I was with Melissa and some other mothers on a playground..we ate fruits..and beside there was a building with a labyrinth inside. I went inside with Melissa to let her play with other kids..lost sight for a short moment..and suddenly she was nowhere. I went looking for her..for hours..didn't find her in that labyrinth..almost went crazy. Suddenly my mother stood in front of me and helped me looking for her. What is the meaning of this dream? I guess the wish to meet other mothers with their babies..and the fear of loosing Melissa.
---------------------------------
4. You get a parcel in the mail, you open it and it's a cellular phone. It rings the moment you hold it, and you answer. Who is on the other end and what is the call for?
----------------------------------
Hmmm...good question. The parcel must be from you then..coz who else would be so creativ. You call me coz you finally wanna hear the voice of Melissa ?!..and ask her if I am a good mommie:P?!
---------------------------------
5. WHEN ARE YOU COMING DOWN TO KL AGAIN DAMNIT *ahem* sorry that's not what i meant to ask. erm, the last question really is

5. You have been offered a chance to bury your own time capsule, which will be unearthed in 100 years from now. You're limited to 5 items; what would they be?
---------------------------------
My laptop(with all the picures I took), my old diary, some hair (for genetic reason), my favourite book, some cd of my favourite music..and last but not least a letter to the finder.
