I took Chinese dance classes for 8 years, from age 4 to 12. Those were horrible times.
I love getting my face and scalp stroked. Especially between the eyebrows and the base of my skull, just before the neck.
I like making handicrafts, mainly origami and friendship bands. The process of making handicrafts just calms me down and soothes my nerves.
My past dream careers included: stage actor, dancer, singer, architect, interior designer, international spy, undercover cop, game show host, fashion designer, set dresser, artist, newscaster, and professional bed mattress tester. Unfortunately (or not?) none of them are in my plans in the near future.
I hate durians with a passion. I don’t care how it’s presented - the fruit itself, as an ice-cream flavour, as fillings in a puff pastry, or baked into confectionery - if I catch a whiff of durian, I’m outta here. (That being said, why does “durian season” never seems to end?!)

Hi there! Thank you for the ask, it’s really nice of you and I’m honoured to be one of your favourite followers! :D
I have a pet turtle named Gibble. I found it abandoned in a housing estate void deck, my partner named it, and ‘cause we found it on my mum’s birthday, we presented it to her as a birthday gift of sorts. (Chinese people also believe that turtles represent longevity, so it was fitting!)
That being said, I think I’ve not mentioned explicitly on this blog that I’m Singaporean Chinese. (Dad’s side is Hokkien and mum’s side is Teochew, if we want to be real specific about dialect groups)
I’ve been an ovo-lacto vegetarian for 5+ years, though these days I’m more relaxed about how “clean” my food is. I used to be super passionate about it, but now it’s more like, “meh, I’m used to it and I’m too lazy to eat anything else now”.
I’m currently in the middle of my last semester in university. I feel so burned out.
I actually despise reading books (unless the subject matter is of interest to me, or the book has lots of pictures). I despise reading even more once I went to uni. My parents thought I was an avid reader, but I was more admiring how rows and columns of alphabets or characters looked really pretty.
I make super unfunny puns. I cause a lot of second hand embarrassment to my friends as a result of how cringe-worthy my puns and jokes are.
If you’re a stranger, good luck trying to get me to talk; if you’re a friend, good luck trying to get me to shut up!
The longest I’ve ever been away from home was 6 weeks. That study trip to Wuhan, China was stressful as hell, but hey, my partner and I officially got into a romantic relationship on that trip, so it was still good.
My favourite The Sims expansion pack is Superstar.
I’m very scared of clavicles in general. I can’t even touch my own clavicles. Even the word “clavicle” irks me. Urgh.
"You can tell a lot about someone by the type of music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod, phone, iTunes, media player, etc., and write down the first 20 songs. Then pass this on to 10 people. One rule: no skipping."

(Come to think of it… my music taste is kinda embarrassing with all the weird oldies. 11-13 literally all came from the same playlist that was based on those “Best Oldies~~~” CDs my dad used to play in his car.)
I’ll tag all and any of you who are interested to do this! Let me know if you’re doing this, I’d love to see what you listen to!
White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”
I will never understand why.
Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.
Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.
Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.
If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.
