11 questions from Clelixedda and Tini:

  • How many steps does it take to walk from your bedroom to your bathroom?

Very few. My apartment is small, hardly about 10 steps. 😛

  • Which dish do you think is disgusting?

Being a vegetarian, am not very fond of meat. But seafood (the smell of fish) makes me wanna throw-up. I don’t think I can ever muster the courage try weird foods like reptiles and bugs. EVER.

  • Tell us your favourite joke!

I am really bad at this! at this time, I cannot think of any joke. 🙂

  • What would you do with a million euros/dollars/pounds?

With a million euros/dollars/pounds, I would first buy a car and a lazyboy recliner (for crocheting ;)). and then make a plan of what to do next. I am sure will still continue what I am doing right coz I love it. I love being in Biology, and love crocheting.

  • What was your favourite habit as a child?

Writing. Not as in writing stories or poems, just writing with a pen. As a child, I just loved writing, calligraphy, taking notes, color-coding every heading.

  • How long does it usually take you to write a post?

It takes me about an hour to write a post. I usually have in mind what I want in a post and just go ahead and pen it down.

  • What is your favourite television series? (Or was there any ‘first’ series addiction?)

FRIENDS. This was my first addiction. I watched it over and over again, till I knew every dialogue of every episode of all 10 seasons.

  • Why are you blogging?

I am a newbie at crocheting, other blogs helped me get better at it. I want to share my experiences with crocheters who are new at this by inspiring them, and experienced crocheters to help me get through hurdles.

  • Do you have any guilty pleasures?

When I am hungry in the middle of the night, I need to have Ramen noodles (Maggi). During college days, I would do this at 3am and study through the night.

  • When have you last been really happy about something?

When my family came to visit me and we had am awesome vacation together.

  • Where could you spend hours when you’re not at home?

Apart from home (with my parents), at the library or a local café. This could keep changing with years. There is a canal nearby where I love to spend my time walking if the weather is good.
