Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!
Saturday 9: You Belong with Me
1) Like the girl in this song, have you ever been in love with someone, but was afraid to tell them?
I wasn’t certain if it’s love indeed. But safe to say I had a huge crush with someone and was afraid to tell that person lest that person avoid if he knew.
2) Taylor Swift has been known to write songs about her real-life lovers. If you were to write a song about the most recent person you were romantically involved with, what would the title be?
Rollercoaster Rush.Errm, lame, isn’t it? Lol.
3) Ms. Swift recently turned 23 and has already won VMAs and AMAs and Grammys. What were you doing when you were 23? (If you aren’t 23 yet, where do you see yourself when you hit it?)
Let me see… that was a long time ago. When I was 23 I was working at a television network producing features and covering live events, including concerts. At that time I was madly crushing on someone who was the best keyboards player in the local music scene. I was always enthusiastic about covering their concerts 🙂
4) When you were a child, did you sleep with a plush toy? (If yes, please include its name in your answer.)
Yes, I grew up with a plush toy called Chico. My sister and I would race to fetch Chico first for the “right” to sleep with it.
5) I’m making a Starbucks run. What can I get you?
Not a Starbucks fan but thank you.
6) It was 60 years ago that Clarence Birdseye first marketed frozen vegetables. Now it’s your turn: Share something you learned recently.
I learned how to knit!! Thanks to video tutorials online, I was able to learn the basic stitches of knitting after just two hours. I know now how to cast on the needle, do the knit stitch, purl stitch and the standard binding off. I’m excited to learn more, like making my own socks, beanies, slippers, and other stuff in the future.
7) In junior high, were you class clown, teacher’s pet, a geek, a jock … or did you just melt into the background?
I guess I was one of the geeks in class. When you’re a geek in high school, people tend to pick on you. Luckily I have this ability to blend in the background like a furniture.
8) Was your most recent ticket for parking illegally or was it a moving violation?
I don’t drive, thank God. It’s crazy driving here in Phnom Penh. Foreigners especially gets ticketed for no apparent reason. We try to avoid areas where traffic police are stationed.
9) Tell us about the last museum you visited.
Not too long ago, I visited the Laos National Museum in Vientiane, Laos. It is a small museum that you can see everything in two hours or so. Most of the stuff on display were old and almost faded but it showcases a lot from the pre-historic to modern day Lao. The museum is housed in an old but charming French colonial building. Most notable are the unexploded ordinances from the American War. In the 60s through the 70s Laos was heavily bombed and many unexploded shells are scattered around the countryside. Naturally, there are anti-Western displays, particularly ones describing the Americans as “imperialists”.
