I am feelingthoughtfulthoughtful
Listening toHedy Yunus & Yovie Widianto - Suratku
that i don't quite.. like
but something that I'm probably guilty of myself
and that's how we like to neatly pigeon-hole people based on how they dress, they carry themselves
punks, goths, lots of tattoos, lousy dress sense, good dress sense, etc..
and then from there we extrapolate and include their character, their interest, etc..

but it's usually wrong
people aren't who we expect them to be and they can surprise us.. in ways that we might not have even seen coming.
This is the part where we veer towards me

Things you don't know about me (if you're meeting me for the first time in person)

I am friendly - I have this super lansi (arrogant) face if I ever not smile and that may happen if I'm meeting you for the first time. I might even just ignore you.. Sorry.. force of habit. Don't even get me started about if I am not happy.. I glower
I used to play the piano - yes, the giant in me used to be smaller and pianos seemed so much bigger than I used to be
I read - again, I'm not a jock, and will never be one.. I enjoy reading usually by myself as ppl usually don't read as fast as I do. Not bragging, just a fact.
I go to the theatre read the above point and also, I find it entertaining
I'm not a motorhead - Even though I work in the spare parts industry.. All I'm concerned with my car is that it goes fast enough, it looks good enough. What's under the hood, how many ways I can tweak the injection whatever is of NO interest to me.
I am sappy Refer to the 1st point. I may look like that(1st point) but that doesn't mean that I am like that.
I enjoy cooking Michele can vouch for that actually.. She's one of the few that's actually tasted my cooking.. and used to call me 'Chu Fan Poh' - 'Housewife' when I was in Melbourne.
I speak Mandarin Yes the grammar nazi actually speaks mandarin.. I grew up speaking the language, that's why.. though it's not 100% accurate, can still be understood.

Just somethings to get you started..
It's always better to know that person first before forming an opinion or making an assumption about that person.

Just a thought just 'cause sometimes it's a little tiring to hear the amazement when I don't actually fit the expectation..
You know where to reach me.. =)
