This past week has been quite eventful…its not only awards season around here, apparently tagging season is back again 🙂 Its nice to take a little break though (from the last time), so I can recharge my brain to make up more questions. I’m still slightly lazy because thinking up questions are hard, so I’m doing both the tags together!
This time I was tagged by Natasha at Films and Things and Meera Darji. I’m very happy that they let me in on this fun game! If you haven’t read their blogs, you really need to head on over there and check it out. For one, you might want to help Natasha out with their new short movie project called Once Bitten Twice Shy. I’ve been tight financially but I managed to scrap up some money and help them out, perhaps you’d be interested in doing the same! Meera hosts a fabulous movie review blog and very much worth your time. She suggested me a movie also which I’m looking for and hopefully reviewing soon 🙂
So the rules of this tag (has simplified from that last time I did it) is that you have to answer 11 questions (I have two sets so 22 in my case). Then I have to nominate 11 bloggers and give them 11 questions of my own. Let’s get this started!
1) If you could be any animal, alive or extinct, what would you be and why?
Siberian Tiger. No question at all! I mean if you want to go mean, I’d do the Sabre-Tooth. I’m born year of the tiger. Its my favorite animal and they look so beautiful and majestic.
2) What is one of the funniest things you said/did as a child?
I wasn’t a very funny child. Most of the time, I didn’t talk. I’d just hide behind my mom…or my nose would be in the book. There was a funny scenario where my cousins and I did a recorded re-enactment of Three Little Pigs in our version of course. I used to listen to that cassette tape and laugh my ass off.
3) If you won a million pounds on the lottery, what would you do with it?
At today’s conversion rate, a million pounds would be 1,555,800 CAD!!! (I work in the accounting field..I do that) I’d make my future plans happen right now. I mean thats crazy (if that ever happened). And then the rest of the money, I’d save up for yearly trips away and then I can even focus on studying and drop my current job to part-time.
4) Describe your personality in three words…
Down to earth :P, technically thats 3 words…
5) What is your dream career…if money and all other factors weren’t an issue?
Hmm…I’ve wanted to do multiple things. One of my big ones is to open my own shop with baked goods and nice tea and coffee. It sounds like a really nice thing to do. I’ve always wanted to do something like that. Just never had a good unique idea yet.
6) If your house was burning down (and let’s assume all your family and pets are safe, and no one is stuck inside) what one thing would you go in and save?
I’m going to go with my first instinct and say my security blanket. Its all ragged and ugly and been sewed all over the place. Its not even the original piece of material at the bottom anymore but I’m attached to it. I like to know that its with me when I’m sleep and it comforts me in a bad situation. I mean my house burning down would be a pretty devastating situation….
7) If you could be a superhero for a day, what super power would you choose?
Healing would be an awesome one. I had thought about Invulnerability or Invisibility or Breathing under water…but healing seems like a good one. Having super powers means having more responsibilities..at least Spiderman had a quote like that. At least healing means I can help others get better, especially sick children because they deserve a chance to see more of the world.
8) If you could move house to anywhere in the world, where would you choose and why?
Paradise. You know how Up had his house on top of the waterfall. I’d do that. I mean I’d be happy with a hut on top of the water in Maldives or Bora Bora. Just near some form of water because that would be sweet! But then, as long as I have my boyfriend and my mom and my cat with me, I’d be happy with anywhere 🙂
9) What is/was your favourite school/college subject?
School meaning high school would be Music. College (meaning Quebec’s CEGEP) would be Psychology and college as in university would be Spanish.
10) Where do you see yourself in ten years time?
Montreal with a husband and kid(s) and our own house..possibly teaching piano and teaching English. Thats the goal right now at least. And having travelled to more parts of the world.
11) And finally, why DID the chicken cross the road?
Of course, to get to the other side 😉 And have an adventure
If you had the chance to build any invention, what would you create?
I have no idea…
Fire or Water? Why?
Water, because I love it! Calm and relaxing…
If you had to choose any sport that you had to undertake once every week, which sport would you choose?
I already do a sport, dragon boat. I’d do that all the time..or I’d love to try rowing 🙂
Whats your favourite snack?
Gingerbread cookies! Shortbread cookies! These days..its been Dried Cranberries and the energy blend with edamame, almonds, cranberries, strawberries, blueberries, pumpkin seeds etc. That stuff is addictive!
Sunset or Sunrise?
Sunsets…At least judging from my pictures that I’ve taken. I always find sunsets so beautiful…
We all have imagination. What recently happened in your dream?
Oh my…I just was thinking about this. I had a crazy dream about the book I am reading right now, Gone Girl…messed up stuff. I’m totally obsessed with that book right now and its just crazy…
If you could be the Maker of any FILM which would you choose?
Maker of any film? I’m not exactly sure what this means…but I’d gladly be part of the production of Hugo or that Georges Melies Moon one. That would be pretty cool.
Do you believe in a second life? If so, would you want to remain yourself, be someone else or something else…Who/what?
I believe in reincarnation. I am Chinese Buddhist background. It comes with it. I haven’t thought about death or what comes afterwards. I’d probably want to be someone else. I’ve already done my life once..its had its rough patch but its had its good times but experiencing life from a different angle would be quite fun.
Sky diving or Rock climbing?
Rock climbing…After doing tree adventures, thats not so scary. Plus, I have a rule in life or a philosophy…If I’m perfectly safe in a plane and its not in any urgent danger to evacuate, I dont’ see why I’d choose to jump out of it. And, I’d probably die of a heart attack because I’m scared of heights and thats just WAY past what I could possibly take.
If you would like to do one thing in the whole world, what would it be?
Gather my huge family and have a gigantic dinner together…I always feel that its a shame that I don’t know everyone in my own family. That would be uber cool. Its like a once in a lifetime thing.
Walking in to a shopping mall, you see a ‘EVERYTHING IS FREE HERE’ sign, which store do you wish it would be?
Choices…so many choices! Realistically, I’d go groceries. Groceries are expensive, alright? If not, I’d go books because those can get expensive also. If not, it would be some form of appliances and furniture.
Boring answers, I know. Thats just how I am. A conflict between dreaming and being realistic. A snapshot into my life. I have dreams but you know, sometimes reality takes the front seat. Just sometimes 😉 I’d like to think here is where I get to dream!
Now onto who I’m going to tag! If you don’t feel like writing a full post on it, its ok. You can just write the answers in the comments. Of course, if you play along, that would be super fun as well 🙂 Here they are:

Its been kind of hectic on my end so after scrunching this in on my lunch break before I actually go eat. Thanks again to Natasha and Meera for the tags and I look forward to your answers. If any of you not in the list above wants to answer it, go for it and be my guest! I want to learn about all of you 🙂
