Bookworm Tag

Published by under Fun Meme

I got tagged by Clair as well as my buddy on this last week. Don’t want to appeared stuck up (has been delaying doing tags for a while due to laziness), better get it done now.

Do you remember how you developed a love for reading?
I grew up surrounded by books at home as well as at my grandparents place. Reading is like eating , bathing and changing to us (my brother and me) , it has always been part of our life. When we were in primary school, my dad set up a home library for us, which I took charge of the English and Malay section while my brother took care of the Chinese books.

What are some books you read as a child?
Fairy tales by Hans Christian Anderson, The Grimms’ Brothers as well as Chinese pictures stories book. That was for preschool years. In lower primary, Enid Blyton was in my reading list too apart from those Chinese Folklore, Buddhist Children Stories. I remember most vividly “The Enchanted Tree” . I started reading Chinese Romance at age 11 and was simply hooked to it. Which at that time my parents didn’t really like my book choice. :

What is your favourite genre?
Personal encounter/bibliography. Particularly interested in those written by Chinese Author (but written in English_ about their struggle during the cultural revolution.

Do you have a favourite novel?
Kane and Abel used to be my favourite. And I have read “The Wild Swan” 5 times.

Where do you usually read?

When do you usually read?
Anytime. Now that I’m so short of time, I usually read when I’m nursing baby to sleep and you can imagine I read in an awkward position (reclining side way. :P)

Do you usually have more than one book you are reading at a time?
Nope. I used to finish up one book before going for another. But lately, with so little time and yet can’t stop shopping for more books, it’s usually I flip through the few chapters of the current book I’m reading and when the new book arrive, I abandon the one that I’m half way through and starting reading the new book. In a way, I have never get to finish reading up the whole book.

Do you read nonfiction in a different way or place than you read fiction?
Not sure. Not that I pay attention to.

Do you buy most of the books you read, or borrow them, or check them out of the library?
In my life, apart from during Uni life, I have never used the library. I might borrow them, rent them and I prefer buying them.

Do you keep most of the books you buy?
Yes, they are my prize possession.

If you have children, what are some of the favorite books you have shared with them?
I would like them to read those Chinese Classic. Currently they are reading some of the pictures book that I used to be reading when I was their age. I have yet to get my mum to dig out more from her storage.

Were they some of the same ones you read as a child?
Yep, .

Do you keep a TBR (to be read) list?

What’s next?
Nothing in my list at the moment.

What books would you like to reread?
I would like to go through some of the Chinese Classic like “Feng Shen Bang” and “Liao Jai”

Who are your favourite authors?
Don’t have any favourite.

Don’t know who else to tag. Those I have in mind to tag, have already done the tag. :(

What I REALLY want to do on Mother’s Day

Published by under Fun Meme

MG asked what I really want to do on Mother’s Day. HHmm…I really have to give it a thought.

To look back the passed 5 years, I don’t really recall celebrating Mother’s Day and in fact I missed out celebrating with my mum too. Usually I buy gift for mum and sometimes we eat out, but I think the last 2 years we didn’t celebrate together.

So what I want and what I dream off is to take a break from my family , hubby and the kids and spent a day with my mum. Just my mum and me. I realize after I got married, I hardly got the chance to spent time with my mum alone. In fact I hardly got a chance home to visit her not to mention spending time one to one with her. When she was here doing confinement for me, she was so busy taking care of my older kids, we hardly have the time to be alone and each time we visited, I also do not get a chance to chit chat with my mum as the older kids will interrupt our conversation and they fighting for my mum’s attention too. They love po po dearly and since we hardly go back my parent’s house, each time the kids see po po, they are equally excited and happy as me. Now, I just wish and dream that I can have alone time with my mum.

My dream on Mother’s day….

I will fetch my mum from her home early in the morning, bringing along mothers day gift baskets for her, which I would have pre-order these gift baskets online ( I have seen some nice gourmet gift basket online, which is so unique and I don’t think we can find it here locally, in fact there are so many variety of gifts/fruit baskets available online that caters to all holiday occasion, internet is a great place to check out these holiday gift baskets) and we will go for a nice breakfast together and then we will go for shopping and more chit chatting. After that we will check into a spa together for steam bath, massage, facial, pedicure and manicure. Lunch at fancy restaurant and follow by going to a hair saloon for a nice hair wash or a hair make over . We will proceed to have tea and more shopping and dinner at posh restaurant again.

Well well…all these are just fantasy. I’m still fully and highly needed by my children especially baby and how can I escape for a day from them? Impossible. Even if I really do get a chance, I don’t think I could have peace of mind and relax and not worrying on how they coping at home without me. I still haven’t learn how to let go.

So now, tell me what’s your Mother’s Day dream

Now I am interested in what YOU would really like to do on Mother’s Day.

Don’t hold back. Let it rip! Will you share your Mother’s Day Fantasies on your blog. Then pass it on to other Mothers to share. Lets be silly and let our hair down. Then add your name and blog post url to the list and let it go around. I’ll start with mine. Anyone can participate in this. Just write your blog post and add your name to the list. Its that simple.

A Meme: Fabulous Friday Fives

Published by under Fun Meme

To wrap up today, I’m going to do this meme. I have not done any meme for a while and I know I’m still in meme debts which has not been cleared. (Sorry, if I owe you a tag, will do my homework soon, have to go through my technorati incoming links to trace them)

By the way, Sasha just mentioned to me that I have posted so many posts today (she said I posted 9 posts today, I think probably more than that, I’ve lost count), while my MSN taglines says “NO LONGER HAVE TIME TO BLOG” . ( see, I don’t even have time to change my tagline) and I have yet to complete my assignments…letting them rot again , unless I’ll be able to blog during weekend.

So here you go, a simple Five questions meme to be posted on a Friday. (Since this tag says Friday, so I better do it today!!)


1. To watch or participate?
Watch and be amused. Don’t participate and end up like a fool.

2. Malls, catalog shopping, or the Internet?
Anything also can, as long as is shopping. hehehe SHOPAHOLIC ME!

3. A bath or shower?
Shower, make sure the shower is with pump , so that I won’t be facing low water pressure problem.

4. To talk to people by telephone, in person or by e-mail?
Email, SMS.

5. Typing or writing?

Wau…very easy tag..a while “gau tim” already.

Now this tag goes to…

Don’t know who to tag wor…it’s such late Friday evening already and the tag says Friday Five, which means it should be posted on a Friday…. so who wants to do this tag??

Ok..let me think who’s very hardworking and still sit in front of the PC at this late hour

1. Mommy To Chumsy

2. Miche

3. Jo-N
