26. What’s something that amazes you?

Long Beach for chilli crabs.

29. What’s one thing you’d rather pay someone to do than do yourself? Why?
Cooking my meals everyday. I still cannot come to terms with the fact that it takes so much time to prepare and cook a (Chinese) meal, and just 5 mins to devour all of it.

30. Do you have a catchphrase?
Seriously – in the short and curt way and the dragged-out way.

37. If you could eliminate one weakness or limitation in your life, what would it be?
Fear of public speaking I think.

38. If you could restore one broken relationship, which would it be?
None. Broken relationships worth saving have been saved.

39. If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to?

Yes. Too many people know too little but think they know a lot.

41. What do you consider unforgivable?

I’m afraid no piece of news delivered to me thus far has made me hysterically happy.

48. How difficult is it for you to be honest, even when your words may be hurtful or unpopular?
It depends on whether I have to do it face-to-face or not.

49. When did you immediately click with someone you just met? Why? Conversely, are you close with anyone now that you really disliked at first?
A few years back. Because she is extremely warm and friendly (and loud), compensating my lack in both departments, and we share many things in common.

No.

50. When do you find yourself singing?
In the bath, at home when no one is around, in the rain. And whenever I am happy.
