Get to Know Me!

Woohooo! This is my 3rd week of participating in MannLand5's blog meme called "Getting to Know YOU". Eight new questions this week for you guys to know me better... here goes:

1. If you could star in any movie genre..what would it be.. romance.. horror.. comedy.. suspense or action?
I think I would have to go for comedy. My life is full of silly mistakes and I can't do anything else but to laugh over it myself... I can think of a couple scenarios, like the time I broke my right arm THREE times in 3 months (oh heck... which reminded me I really-really-really have to blog about this one day! I keep forgetting it!!!), or the time I sent my office laptop to ICU (as in server room) after accidentally poured a whole tumbler of water INTO the laptop (thank God it didn't short circuited the board) or the very recent incident of me banging the car into the parking sign board... (thank God no one is around to see that superbly embarrassing incident!)

2. Do you recycle?
Oh yes... paper bags, plastic bags, clothes and whatever things which are still in good conditions.

3. Have you ever been to a strip club?
I have never even been to any club. Seriously. Oh wait, there is this one and only time I went to this club which has a bar with a group of my ex-colleagues in which everybody ordered martinis and stuff and I got myself chocolate milkshake. Yeah, I'm that innocent and goody good girl :D

4. Do you have a nickname?
Err... my students from my 1st IT job called me 'sifu' (or guru) - perfectly understandable since I taught them about programming for few months. Other than that, nothing silly I guess... ;p

5. What's a name you can't stand to be called?
Jen. My name is Jenny but I can't stand it when someone choose to shorten the name further to "Jen". I mean, how difficult could it be for that person to just add one more syllable when calling my name?

Another name I can't stand is 'Aunty'. Here in Malaysia, once you have kids or as long as you're older or have permed hair (which makes you look older), you're an aunty. I hated this. Nobody but my nieces and nephews and friends' children can call me aunty.

This reminds me of one incident when I was 21 and just spent few hundred bucks perming my hair to this oh-so-awesome hairstyle and I was on my way home in the bus and sat next to this teenager. And just about 1 minute before I reached my stop, she called me 'Aunty' (quite loud) and asked for the time. Hated it...

6. What are your Summer staples?
Here in Malaysia, it's summer all year long. Seriously. I'd go for any iced drinks on any day...

7. What was the last thing you bought for yourself?
T-shirts. Three of them actually. They were on sale. 3 for $50... worth it worth it!

8. Are you happy with your boob size?
Right after delivering my baby in March last year, OH YES! As I was still breastfeeding my baby, it is ermm... quite large in size but now, almost 14 months on... it's back to the normal size... of course, I am still breastfeeding (almost 14 months woohooo!!) but okay, no complains so far :D

Thanks for reading and hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

Wow! Malaysia. I couldn't reply to you directly so I found your blog. Hi there. I don't think people will call me Missy... they better not.

Have a great Sunday!

Chelle said...

I am so happy to see that I'm not the only person who is accident prone. I swear no matter what I touch I either hurt myself or damage the item.

Have a great week.

Hi Melissa & Chelle,

Happy Sunday to you guys too! Nice knowing you guys btw! :)

cheekymama said...

Hey there,
Enjoyed getting to know more about you. In Nigeria, I get called Aunty too so that made me smile. And I'm still breastfeeding my 14 month old although hoping to wean him off (by hook or crook) over coming months!

Do stop by at

I'm glad I'm not the only gal out there who is a non drinking "goody goody". That whole club scene, despite what so many people say - it is totally not worth it!!!

Hi cheekymama!
Thanks for dropping by! Hey, congrats on breastfeeding your 14mth old. Mine is going to be 14 mth old this coming 4th and yes, I am still breastfeeding him! :)

Hey Supermanslady!
I don't think there's anything wrong about choosing not to go to those places. And yeah, totally agree with you! Not worth it! If you want to have a good time and hang out with your friends, you should do it at a comfy and quiet place where you can sit together and just talk! Right?

I think it's strange when people shorten names without your permission. I think they're trying to be cool or buddy-buddy with you when they do that. I always thought my name (Marilyn) couldn't be shortened but quite a few people have called me Mare over the years. It's really annoying.

I'm a full-time mummy said...

Hi Marilyn!

Yeah! Totally agree with you. Heck, even my close friends and hubby don't call me Jen!

Mumzzy said...

Jen nice mah :P

about the breast size part. after i stopped breastfeeding, it's totally no shape hahaa, flat chested! unlike what the books say -> back to so sad.

I'm a full-time mummy said...


Jen is nice, if my name is Jen... ;p No lah, hated it lah! People who call me by this shortened name thinks they are BFF with me... which they are not..

Huh... flat chested liao ar? Aikksss... like that mine might be inverted when I weaned Ben off leh.. :(
