#12 - I'm a coffee junkie. Well actually, a 'controlled' coffee junkie. I love coffee so much that I need coffee to keep me going especially in uni.
I remembered one day in uni, my roommate took only 2-3 sips of my usual coffee in a tall tupperware tumbler. It was a wake up call for me when my roommate got sick with serious headache for 2 days because of my coffee... I had used 2 tablespoons of nescafe to make the drink when in fact, 1 or 2 teaspoons was enough.
I laid off coffee for awhile until I started working. My coffee intake grew gradually and while I was pregnant with little jj, I would think of coffee everyday!
Nowadays, I try to take less coffee as I could see little jj getting very cranky and easily agitated when I make my delicious iced nescafe-shake in a 1 litre tumbler ;P
#13 - I always believe what goes around comes around. I have been hurt and betrayed before but I always see those people getting what they deserve in a matter of no time. Thus, I never believed in getting even because God is great and God is kind. Things will turn around to my advantage.
#14 - I always see a glass as half full. I never realised this until I was in my first year in uni and my best friend, Sue, one day mentioned to me that I always look at the positive side. It was just simple then... we were all complaining about our Mandarin 101 class that starts at 8-10am twice a week and both of us were located at separate hostels which were much further than the rest of the hostels - a good 20-25 minutes walk. All of a sudden, I said, "Well, at least the early class will make me wake up early (since I don't always wake up so early),".
It was then that I realise, hey... I do take almost everything in a positive light.
I guess when you look at something positively, only then can you really see what you can do ahead of you. Being pessimistic about something blocks your vision to allow you to move on. At least, that's what I think la...
#15 - I don't believe in myths, urban legends and those stupid forwarded chain emails. No, Bill Gates will not give you that million bucks for forwarding a stupid email to 15 people (and I am utterly perplexed at how many people are still sucked into doing it after years of it being exposed as hoax!) because I seriously cannot see how he can track those emails.
And no, I don't believe any magical thing will happen to your computer screen after you forward the certain emails to 10 more recipients because I cannot find the link between email addresses and codes for things to happen to a computer screen... what the *
And no, you will not have bad luck for 10 years if you do not forward a certain email to 10 people within the next 2 minutes. Heck, what does luck got to do with forwarded mails?
If I do get emails like these, just one look at the subject, ie: Must forward bla bla bla, I'll delete them without even opening. Some are nicer, though, like friendship and love... and if I like the content, I'd take what I like and delete the lower part that says, "Please forward this to bla bla bla".
#16 - I don't say. I just do. It annoys me when people send me sms or fake messages saying they miss me and asks me when we could meet again. I have many busy friends but if they really want to meet up, they would make time, even if it is for a mere 30 minutes. And for your info, I would make time for you as well. I'd give you the day, time and suggestion for places to meet... and this surprises you because you never have that intention truthfully, or you'd sincerely take that chance.
You don't need to PR with me. It's okay if we don't meet because we always have the phone, we always have facebook and we always can email each other if we feel a little anti-social. Hey, I get it. I am sometimes anti-social myself... the one can highly testify to that. Having a demanding baby and doing things alone at home with no help, I'd sometimes prefer my couch and privacy as compared to busy traffic and the need to be all dolled-up before going out. I even understand if you're so busy because that is truly okay with me.
But when you say you miss me and would like to meet up (even to the point of asking how to meet up with me??) I'd give you plenty of avenues to do that... furthermore, I am always home since I work from home. You can always drop by. When I gave birth to little jj, it was even a better excuse to come see me and I text almost everyone I knew. But if you don't intend to see me, then don't say you do because it is pretty annoying having a fake friend. Friendship doesn't just mean meeting up, peck on cheeks and whatnot... friendship comes from the heart... and when it comes from the heart, one would mean what one says.
