I was tagged by kofykat to complete… I have no idea what these things are called. The first word that comes to mind is “survey” haha. In any case, here’s what I have to do:

Tell 11 things about yourself, answer the 11 questions asked by the one that tagged you, tag 11 other people and ask them 11 different questions.

11 things about me:

You are about to see a side of me that I bet you weren’t expecting.

  1. I am very picky when shopping for shoes and wish I could design my own. Usually, I know if I’ll love it how it looks on me just at a glance – comfort is another issue altogether, though.
  2. I have the worst time in the world trying to keep eye makeup on. I’ve tried many things, and I’m still working on it – product by product.
  3. Despite having a cat, I have always been a dog person. I am now a fan of both!
  4. I have always wanted to design my own house.
  5. I have always been independent.
  6. I have 6 piercings.
  7. I have always wanted a tattoo. And a motorcycle.
  8. My favourite anime is Fullmetal Alchemist – an anime incorporating the idea of alchemy, where you can change the properties of substances but you can’t make something out of nothing. The plot is mind-blowing.
  9. I still love Pokemon – although I prefer the first generation of 150 (151). All the others are just repeats – and I find that each generation gets uglier. Charizard is my favourite.
  10. My favourite Xbox game is Sudeki – it’s one of the few games I’ve managed to beat, and still play several times over. I love RPG’s (role-playing games) and get dizzy and disoriented with first-person shooters.
  11. I can’t wait for Diablo 3 to come out – I’ve been playing Diablo 2 since it came out and I used to play Diablo multiplayer with my dad. I have also been playing the beta on Dark’s friend’s account. I am going to need a new computer to be able to play it… But be forewarned, blogging may slow down when it’s released on May 15 LOL 😛

Shocked and appalled? 😉 One big nerd, aren’t I? Haha xD

11 questions from kofykat:

  1. Which is the one country you would love to visit and why?
    France. Because it’s France! Paris, the city of love… and French cuisine? Yum! Italy is a close second, I love Italian food, too! Shopping is probably wonderful in Europe too – am I right?
  2. When you hear that a book is being made into a movie, what would you do, watch the movie first or read the book first (assuming you haven’t read the book)? 
    I have always loved reading – I spent my childhood and youth with my nose buried in a book more often than glued to any computer/television screen. I would have to say I’d read the book first if I knew it existed.
  3. How long have you been blogging? And what difference has it made in your life?
    I started various blogs in grade school but never kept them up – they’ve long since disappeared now, lost in cyberspace forever. I started this blog in October, but didn’t blog regularly until February. I am so addicted now – I love writing and sharing and reading. And it’s all thanks to the blogging community and all my followers. Thank you all for making this wonderful!
  4. The colour you turn to when you’re in a bad mood?
    Huh. I don’t think I consistently choose colours based on my mood. Nope, I have no idea haha.
  5. How much of a product junkie are you?
    I want it all. I just can’t afford it!
  6. Sibling love. Love hate. or hate?
    It’s been a love-hate relationship for the longest time – probably because we go through our difficult, unmanageable, contrary, ever-so-rebellious preteen/teenage years in succession. I’ve gone through it, but now I’m waiting for her to outgrow it so we can actually start getting along on a regular basis, as opposed to every few hours  😉
  7. Favourite perfume that you can’t live without?
    I don’t wear perfume – it’s just one of those things I never remember I own. I’ve gotten a few as gifts, but the only one I ever bought for myself is Marc Jacob’s Daisy.
  8. What is the one gift that you want for your next birthday?
    Diablo 3! Or perhaps a new computer to play it on.
  9. Do you believe in love at first sight?
    No, but I believe in sparks at first meeting!
  10. What’s your favourite song right now?
    Favorite Girl by The Icarus Account (twin brothers writing their own songs)
  11. What’s your favourite healthy food item?
    Milestones’ California Spring Salad with chicken. If that’s not healthy enough, then just oranges 🙂

    10. I’ve learnt the Violin (not fully) the harmonium and carnatic on the guitar. I wanna learn the flute and the piano and finish the previous instruments too.
    11. I love how well i can work under stress. I never work well when all is calm but under stress I’m awesome. 😀

  3. Thanks for the tag 😀 I shall take my time and answer each question as detailed as I can ^^ Keep an eye out!! I don’t think I can find 11 people though 😦

  4. i always wanted a dog but i just don’t have the luxury of time to take care of one now..
    i hope i can commit to one once i graduate from my undergrad studies *fingers crossed* 😀

    • I’ve wanted my own dog too since I was young – one of the reasons why I can’t wait to move out and get my own place!

      You will find the time when you’re finished!

  5. Thanks for the tag! I didn’t know you’re actually a dog person. I’ve seen a lot of converts though hehe. Love Miko in this picture! All curled up into a kitty ball 🙂

    • The first pet I came across was my aunt’s Yorkie, back when I was 4, and he was so friendly. My parents have always been partial to dogs, too, as my mom had dogs before she had me. And I grew up thinking cats were scary because I was afraid they’d throw hissy fits and scratch like crazy. I think it just takes a level of understanding for any pet – Miko can be very disagreeable sometimes too but I can gauge her emotions so it helps!
