brace yourself (8 facts about me)

I've been tagged. And because I have trouble following and understanding written instructions, I had to read and re-read this at least 20 times:

  • In the 8 facts about [name], you share 8 things that your readers don’t know about you. At the end, you tag 8 other bloggers to keep the fun going. Each blogger must post these rules first.

  • Each blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

  • At the end of the post, a blogger needs to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

So without any further ado, here are some random things about me:

  1. Unlike most kids, I liked the dentist when I was younger. I looked forward to having my teeth extracted. And although the sight of the needle made me a little uncomfortable, I was never scared of it. I loved going to the dentist because my Nanay would always get me ice cream and ice cold coke after and because the dentist would always say, "Uy ang tapang. Hindi umiiyak". And that always made me feel real proud of myself.

  2. Most of my shoes are size 11, some are size 10 and a couple of them are size 12.

  3. As Artista 4 (a twenty-something pothead) in the Teatro Tomasino production of Sa Sabado, Sa Sam's directed by John Lapus; I was one of Piolo Pascual's two alternates.

  4. Between 1994-1996, I cut news articles from the PDI almost everyday. The stories were from the business section and were mostly about positive developments in Philippine economy. I was so obssessed with those financial news, I considered taking up Economics in college. I kept the articles in at least two shoeboxes which are most likely gathering dust by now somewhere in my parent's house.

  5. I don't eat chocolates because I find its smell repulsive.

  6. Whenever I use the bathroom/toilet in houses other than my family's, I have this weird feeling that when I open the door, I will be transported to a magical place.

  7. In 1992 when the Philippines was gripped by a power crisis, I wrote a long letter to the Occidental Mindoro Electric Cooperative telling them off. I was twelve.

  8. To help save the environment, I don't use straw for my drinks. I also do other things but they should be in a whole new entry.

And there you have it. So to Ketty, Lala, Rain, Badie, Mithi, Al, Ade, and Chris, it's your turn to spill the beans.
