100 little things

Decided to do up a 100 things about me for fun... don't think that any would be earth-shattering knowledge.. especially for friends reading it. hee hee hee! have fun!

  1. came in 2nd in a baby contest (when i was a baby)

  3. dislocated my arm when i was playing tug-a-war with my neighbour
  4. fell into a drain once when i was cycling and had the bike fall on top on me
  5. fell backwards and knocked my head once and had a concussion. developed short-term amnesia, yes.. i'm a regular klutz
  6. i can bend my thumb to touch my forearm,
  7. and can bend my fingers backwards to touch my wrist as well... not to mention weirdo too
  8. i'm terrified of birds,
  9. but love dogs.
  10. started pestering my parents for dogs when i was 4 or 5,
  11. i would throw tantrums by pouting and stamping my foot and going, "我要狗! 我要狗!" (translated: "i want dog!"),
  12. till now, decades down the road, my dad's friends still tease and imitate me pouting and stamping my foot when they see me.
  13. got my first dog when i was 9
  14. his name was toffee
  15. i'm thinking of getting a dog now
  16. would like a border collie, or a retriever to go running with me
  17. I'm not afraid of insects,
  18. and will even crush cockroaches with my bare hands.
  19. my friends think that i'm crazy that i'm afraid of birds and not cockroaches
  20. then again, what's so scary about cockroaches?
  21. must be cos my mum used to do that to cockroaches too
  22. i'm not musically inclined
