8 Random facts about Myself

1. Let's start with the basics. I'm 21, just finished 2 years of slavery, one of which I lived with my girlfriend at her home as my family moved on to Perth.

2. I'm a leftie, so is my sister, although my parents are both righties. They say left handed people are more artistically brilliant. Hmmm, I wouldn't disagree.

3. I love food! Well, that's no big surprise, but I love moving also. That's keeping fit for you. It's really, really important okay! Have a good balance of each. I used to be 86kg when I was 16. Now I'm 68kg.

4. I'm gonna study Physiotherapy in Curtin University next February. I guess it's because I care more for other's healthcare (more ever since I got into healthy living and losing all that weight), that's why I chose to venture on this path. It's no wonder I nag on my parents all the time for eating junk food. I bet they find me a nuisance Grrrr!

5. I used to really, really like basketball although I was never really good at it. Speaking of which, I joined a basketball team called Saints, or Shenze, (not SAJC), if you ever heard of it.

6. Durian is like my lifeline. I can eat durian everyday straight for two weeks without getting a sore throat (Proven and done). Oh yeah, I usually eat up to three whole Styrofoam boxes (or 1 - 2 whole fruit) full of durian each time. No kidding, I don't know how I'm going to survive without durian here in Perth.

7. I also totally dig mahjong. I used to play it like all the time when I was 16. In fact, I had this "mahjong camp" at my friends place which went on for 5 days and 4 nights straight. That was when I "zi mo" my "Thirteen devils". Brilliant.

8. My girlfriend and I landed in Perth on 25th July (last Wednesday) and are happily staying with my family right now. I totally love the environment here and everything else, and I'm extremely delighted to be able to eat mum's cooking everyday again (she whips up a feast everyday). Erm, I gained 2kg in one week.

Well, I wouldn't be tagging anyone for this although I'm supposed to tag 8 other people. Since this blog is closing, I'm doing this as a favour to Jas, a way to thank her for sticking with this blog during the period when it was alive. Cheers Jas!

Dear YD
That was a sweet post, and very funny to read too and thank you once again.
I'll still be using your blog as my foodie bible whenever I make a stopover in Singapore!

shee said...

PLS PLS PLS!!!! dont close the blog!!!even if you arent updating, people are still coming back here to reminisce on old forgotten foods when they look at your older posts!!!!leave it as a memorial??? for your readers sake??? :)also, maybe sometimes when you are feeling bored at home in perth,you can blog random posts like what you are doing!!!so its kinda for your sake too!!!

oh yeah i just ate min jiang kueh today :p hope you are at least able to get that in perth cause i seriously doubt theres the thorny king of fruits there... all the best for your future ventures!!!!

The Yummie dummieS said...

Woah woah woah! Haha, Don't worry I don't mean like literally closing it. I just mean that I wouldn't be doing any more food blogging. Well, most of all because I need to devote alot of time to my studies so I can't afford to split the time.

But I may just drop a few random blogs about life in Perth alright?

So mamabok and shee, don't worry! You can still read the archives.

Hey jas, so tell me when you are ever gonna drop by in Perth alright ;P

Mama BoK said...

Hey.. Sam,

Dear YD!

Actually, I'm moving back to Perth mid-Oct. Probably have to hole up at one of those apartments in the Perth CBD while we hunt for another place to move into again ... so,till then, I will be sort of in transition ... but will definitely check in on you and let you know.

D said...

Yup, let's all have a reunion in Perth one day!

Hi Samuel,

Welcome to Perth. Not sure if you will like the place much after you settle in. Because, a lot of Singaporeans can't make it in Perth. If you do, good for you. Just remember that this is not Singapore, that little paradise which is cut off from the rest of the REAL world.

I work in Curtin Uni, take bus 72 5 times a day from the city busport. You may even spot me buying food from the chinese stall in the cafeteria. So good luck to your studies. Dun worry about studying much, you WILL pass.

Looks like you are living in some nice suburb south of the river.

Good for you.
