Today I am pleasantly surprised to see my name being mentioned in this post by M in her "Living Dizzy" blog. Thank you, M! I’ve been reading M's blog and also her previous blog for some time now and find her to be a strong lady who has overcome many obstacles living with pain and dizziness.
So in appreciation of this mention, I will participate and reveal 7 things about myself that my blogger friends might not know.
Seven Things You May Not Know About Me.
I was told that when I was about 6 months old, my mother left me alone for a while in a stroller in our garden. When she came back for me, she saw a monkey hugging me (my face facing her chest) with me still sitting in the stroller. She shouted and chased the monkey away. In the haste of a quick getaway, the monkey accidentally scratched my forehead which needed 3 stitches.
So now I have a very faint scar on my forehead. No, unlike Harry Potter, it does not glow and no, I can't understand monkeys chatters.
I dislike the house geckos (house lizards) because they kept dropping onto my head from the ceiling when I was young.
I can eat a bowl of 8 tablespoons of instant oatmeal mixed with plain hot water with ease at one go so as long as there is a packet of instant oatmeal and a bowl of plain hot water, I won't die of hunger.
One night, while I was sleeping in my University hostel, I woke up from sleep with a terrible stomach pain and couldn't sleep after that. In the morning, when the pain had subsided a bit, I walked to the clinic alone and was diagnosed with appendicitis.
I have traveled 3 times in an ambulance with the siren on: 1. I was the patient. 2. I was accompanying my late father. 3. I was accompanying my spouse.
When I was young, I wanted to be the Magical Princess Gigi.
My favourite colour is red.
That's all. Thanks again M!
