Got Tagged Again

I was tagged by Helen, yet again. Since I'm such a loyal reader of her blog, I have to show some support. The Rules: Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom spot. 1. The Cosmic Abyss 2. Between Lambs & Mutton 3. The Life of An Independent Babe 4. My All 5. All About Zara Then you select five people to pass the love on to. Here's my selection : 1. Jasmine - what did you do before Faythe came? cooking? 2. Mom2Ashley - what do you like doing? 3. Allyfeel - life before Drs Seger.. :P 4. Shopping Mum - shopping? shopping? shopping? 5. Twinsmum - My long lost school mate, I want to know everything about you! (Seng Kor, see, this time you didn't get tagged) 1. What were you doing ten years ago? I was doing my final year in a small town in UK. Studying, working hard. However, living in the same block of flat with some gorgeous Italians, Spanish and Greeks did provide some motivation to stay in and study *drool*. Daddy (back then just my boy friend) and I continued with our relationship long distant via weekly phone calls and the occasional exchanging of parcels. His contained Milo, Ikan Bilis, Chinese herbs; mine contained Photos (no digital camera back then), gifts, cards (and the relationship barely survived being 1 year apart, but it was still happy ending after that *phew*) 2. What were you doing 1 year ago? I was home struggling with a new born, without a confinement lady (sent her packing on day 2); mum (who's passed on) or MIL (didn't offer) to help. In a way, it was a blessing. I learnt things from scratch, by reading books and from the net, I did things my way, and cared for Zara all by myself for 3 months (alright, with a little of Daddy's help as well as maid's but still it was My Way) 3. Five super fatty and high cholesterol snacks you enjoy: 1. Potato Crisps/Chips Lightly Salted (no can do for other flavour) 2. Keropok or Prawn/Fish Crakers 3. Curry Puffs (love them!) 4. Rich butter cookies (made with real butter and not margarine) 5. Cashew Nuts or Almonds 4. Five songs to which you know all the lyrics off your head right now: 1. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star 2. You are My Sunshine 3. Sing a song of Six Pence 4. London Bridge Is Falling Down 5. Row Row Row Your Boat and many more Gee, soo sad, only can remember nursery rhymes. I have very bad memory, lyrics of songs I'd learnt up I'd forgotten now. These are songs I sing daily, so I have to remember them! 5. Five things you would do if you were a millionaire (actually how far can you stretch a million dollar nowadays?) 1. Get more involve in charity work (the same as Helen) 2. Buy a piece of land and build a small house at the coast of Wales, a Greek Island, New Zealand or Australia. 3. Travel the world, see the places I wanted to see but haven't (Sahara Dessert, Ayers Rock, Niagara Falls, Grand Canyon, Santorini, Mykonos, Meteora). 4. Take years off from work, go back only when I want to not when I have to. 5. Set up a trust fund for Zara's (or any additional kids I have) education (by then how much would have left?) 6. Five bad habits: 1. Messy and untidy (you see my desk at work, you know what I mean) 2. Quick to lash out (Daddy got the most lashing, poor thing) 3. Absolutely love anything deep fried (I have to watch my cholesterol) 4. Zara has to be cared for my way, anybody's way is NO way 5. Day Dreaming - love to just lie on the bed or sofa and just stare into nothingness 7. Five things you like doing: 1. Spending quality time with Zara 2. Eating unhealthily 3. Reading (blogs/books) 4. Shopping (never mind if I'm not buying anything) 5. Traveling (been a while I'd indulged on this) 8.Five things you would never wear, buy, or get new again: 1. Nursing bra (once I'm done with nursing) 2. Breast pads (once I'm done with nursing) 3. Eye shadow (I looked like I'd been punched in the eye every time I apply this) 4. Red lipstick (makes me look whorish) 5. Tight fitting clothes (don't want to be a dumpling or ham-yuk-zhong, and my body expends and shrinks so frequently I won't know what size I'll be next month) Oops, but 1 and 2 I may still buy and wear and use them if I have another kid right? 9. Five favorite toys: 1. My Olympus E500 DSLR 2. My Pentax Optio 555 3. My Electrolux Oven (could have made use of it more) 4. 5. As for toys I played when I was younger, none really 'lived' that long to still be with me. Also, I am not a gadget person, can't even come out with the other 2. There you go Helen.

For nursing bras and pads part...so sad hor? I can't get a proper and nice looking nursing bra sexy enough to make hubby drool! lol

Ask me what am I doing 10 years ago...I can tell you, I'm still a childish teenager in secondary school, struggling with BGR and coming exams! lol That's how boring life is yah? :)

Allyfeel said...

Sue said...

Wow... I was reading till the 5 songs part and my mind went blank, till I saw your 5 songs, then baru the little light bulb came LOL... guess my mind's also filled with Nursery Rhymes only....

Zara's Mama said...

Blurblur,
Hehe, you can write that in your tag too..

Fannie,
Huh? Nursing still want to seduce hubby ah? After milk squirt out how? Aigh.. the sacrifices we have to make..
Yeah la, yeah la.. you so young.. Envy ler!

Allyfeel,
Virgin tag?
Hey, you better do fast. It's spreading like bush fire. The longer you take, the fewer people you can victimised b'cos others already 'choop' them.

Maria,
What a sport you are!

Egghead,
Don't go first, Maria will tag you or it'll go in full circle and you'll eventually kena tagged one.

L B,
You still don't have to travel the path of nursery rhyme yet.. keep it for later. Now just sing Last Christmas or when the time comes, you'll forget the lyrix and only remember those kiddy songs.

Sue,
Nursery rhymes is an illness that most mother has huh?

For eyeshadow, may I suggest using a white shimmer. Guaranteed you will look bright eyed and lovely :)

Wei, if you ever get bored with your 'toys', do remember to give them away to charity cases.... like me. ** pitiful look **

Thanks for doing my tag!! I know who to tag next time liao!! :-P

Zara's Mama said...

Jomel,
My upper lids are naturally dark in colour.. so tried whatever colour, still look like a punch. :(
Fried stuff is too yummy to resist, unfortunately.

Jasmine,
Long but song.. Kakaka

The Diva,
Aaah.. for you never mind, because you are soo tiny winy..

Helen,
I did say barely survived woh.. Got tempted once, that's why barely survived.. (so many leng jai how to tahan?)
My very kiam siap one, toys will use until spoil.. sorry loh.
Tagged by you, my honour. Do your tag, my pleasure (clever to bodek or not). :P

JoMel said...

Since the lids are dark, that was why I recommended white shimmer. It will lighten the dark. Really. Ask for a demo during weekdays when the beauty counter makeup artists are free. Try Stila or MAC or Bobby Brown. They will give you free tips and techniques. And you will leave looking gorgeous. But you must control not to buy anything you don't need. ;)
