I MISS NZ. I MISS BLUESKIES.
I know, I know. I’ve been procrastinating on tags. Haha, I always feel so honored when someone tags me. Thanks to Nicole from Cherry Magazine who tagged me on this one. Hee, my problem is tagging people – because they’re more likely to reject my tagging. It’s like playing a game and nobody else is playing with you. Anyway, I traveled back home over the long weekend to see my family, chill out and eat good food. I had a mini adventure getting lost while trekking in the rainforest with Bubster. Other exciting stuff like getting barked at by wild dogs, encountered a wild boar (very cute actually!) and eaten alive by gazillion mosquitoes. Bubster reckoned I’m not his ideal Amazing Race partner. Boo. OK, let’s get to business with the tagging questions:
1. Where do you go to work? (which country, what course, etc.)
I’m currently doing Marketing and PR at an American University in Singapore (haha, should I even name it?). I like the multicultural environment and the people. I met some interesting creative individuals here whom I prolly won’t have the chance to meet anywhere else. I’m also writing for channelnewsasia.com (in particular, movie and concert reviews). I’m also studying a part-time RMIT-SIM Mass Communication degree on top of everything else. Part-time studying is not fun, seriously. It drains you out like tap. Nothing exciting, really. No fancy schools. I’m still paying my own fees from my own pocket. Maybe that’s why I still don’t own any Marc Jacobs.
2. Where do you shop most? (Shop and directions/address)
Hmm. Orchard Road? I’m quite a lazy shopper. I normally go to ZARA, FCUK, Topshop, MNG, Esprit, Warehouse, Calvin Klein, Spin The Bottle – simply because they’re so much more accessible. And, I can be guaranteed good quality and fair price (I don’t like getting ripped off, hehe). You won’t catch me in Haji Lane very often even though I live pretty nearby! Occasionally, I buy homebrands such as Depression (Far East Plaza #04-41) and Swirl. You can catch me at The Cathay every week – I hang out there alot. Haha.
3. Which band/singer do you listen to the most? Why?
I listen to alot of different music. My favourite music genre is definitely indie, alternative rock (in particular, Brit-rock). Bands such as The Beatles, Radiohead, The Pixies, Arctic Monkeys, Gorillaz, Oasis, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blur, The White Stripes, Kings of Leon, Mogwai, The Libertines, Bob Dylan, David Bowie and the list goes on. I also listen to a little electronic (Kraftwerk, anyone?), pop (I love Madonna, sue me), hiphop (recent influence by a crazy friend who’s into the ‘real’ deal like Beastie Boys) and haha, Miles Davis (also, a recent influence by a faculty member) and oh, Edith Paif. Why? Because music is the juice of my soul.
4. What do you often do in your free time?
Stone. Do nothing. Well, I hardly get any free time – and when I do, I sleep. I like read magazines by the pool. Sometimes, I catch up with friends over a cuppa. I’ll read blogs on my Google Reader. And, watch movies and lotsa lotsa TV shows. Man, I think I’m watching wayyy too much TV sometimes. Or, I go travelling – if the bank permits.
OK, the tagging starts now!
