I don't really do any meme - I don't have the discipline. When I saw this one at Lost in Books, I thought it might be fun to participate since I haven't really shared anything personal before, and I found it's a great way to get to know someone a little bit more!
Recently changed from Queen to King when we were in need of a new mattress. Now our room looks so small lol!
Chore that you hate:
I don't think I'd ever be a dog owner (though I never thought I'd be a cat-mama either...) Husband is allergic to dogs. But if I really have to pick one, I'd choose the big, gentle dogs who aren't hyper lol.
Essential start to your day:
Hot shower to wake me up.
I don't really have one... it depends on my mood and depends on what it is.
Gold or Silver:
I can wear both. I like rose gold also because one the first ring I had was my grandmother's rose gold band (she died way before I was born.)
Instruments you play:
I learned how to play the piano since I was 4 or 5. I learned the violin for a couple of years but I am bad at it. I learned to play the drums for fun for a year, but too hard to perfect it when you don't have a drum kit to practice on (I "made" my own drum kit using telephone books... but it's not the same)
Analyst / Internal Consultant in a health care institution. Photographer (though I am putting my photography business on sabbatical since my analyst job is keeping me too busy).
None... still deciding... unless you count our 3 kittie-kiddies.
Minnesota (about 7 hours NW of Chicago in the US). Or as they say, Many-snow-ta.
Start with a J. In fact, husband's whole family has a J first name.
None... even husband calls me by my first name.
Overnight hospital stays:
When I was born.
Probably too many to list, but I can't really think of one that makes me really annoyed. I usually forget about it soon after.
Quote from a movie:
The only one I remember is "I see dead people"? :p (and no, I don't)
Right or Left handed:
2 younger sisters
Time you wake up:
Depends if I have early meetings or not... if I have 7am meeting I need to get up at 5:45am to catch the bus. On the weekend, I just sleep till whenever my body wakes up. I am a night owl...
Yes I wear them :p
Vegetable you hate:
It's a Chinese vegetable and I don't remember what it's called (in either Chinese or English... after googling, I wonder if it is "Garland Chrysanthemum" or "Tong Ho"... tastes like metal :p)
What makes you run late:
Not wanting to get up (night owl, remember...)
X-Rays you've had:
Chest/lung, teeth. The teeth one makes me gag :p
Yummy food that you make:
Ice cream! I can't really cook (though I want to learn) but I can make pretty good ice cream, thanks to David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop ice cream recipe book! I used to feel indifferent about vanilla ice-cream, until I made it myself using vanilla bean. Better than even Ben & Jerry or Häagen-Dazs! Love green tea ice cream. I even modified the recipe to make black sesame ice-cream (you can tell I am Asian since I love green tea and black sesame everything :)
Ummm... don't really have a favorite?
