My good friend Megan inspired me to check out this blog challenge called “Share Your World“. Basically, Cee from Cee’s Photography asks her readers a new set of questions every Monday to answer on their blogs. I thought it would be fun to participate and let you guys to learn a little bit about me!
What object do you always have with you when traveling and why?
I always have my iPhone on me. It contains everything I’ll need to access when I travel – ticket confirmations, flight updates, email and social media apps, my music collection, notepads and to-do checklists, etc. And that means I’m always searching for Wi-Fi and charging stations wherever I go.
What subject would you like to study in depth, if given the time to do so?
Astronomy. I took an introductory course during my sophomore year of university (because I had to take a Science credit and it is the only scientific subject I have ever cared about) and had a great time gazing at and studying the stars in the sky. Once upon a time, I even aspired to become an astronaut when I grew up (I blame Sailor Moon for that). I visited the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles last summer and it invigorated my interest in the solar system and galaxies far far away.
Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?
This will come as a surprise to those who know me, but I’d choose a wild, turbulent life filled with emotional roller-coasters and the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Perhaps it’s just my selfish twentysomething quarter-life crisis side speaking, but if I was given the opportunity to embark on grand adventures, I would take it in a heartbeat. Of course, I’d probably eventually settle down for a life of happiness, security, and companionship, but let me LIVE first!
What are your favorite spices?
Baby, Posh, Sporty, Scary, and Ginger/Sexy. Oh! You mean food! Well, in that case – Cinnamon. My favourite drink at Starbucks is the Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino, and I have a weakness for Cinnamon buns. Just the name itself (cinnamon) makes you feel all cozy and warm (cinnamonnn). I do not have the acquired taste for tolerating real spicy spices. “But you’re Asian.” Yeah, I know, but no. And hold the cilantro, please.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week, I was grateful to see a preview of summertime in Vancouver. The sun shone down on the city for a few days straight, and it instantly boosted people’s moods and made the flowers in my garden bloom! We’re back to typical Raincouver and overcast skies now, but it was nice while it lasted. In this upcoming week, I am looking forward to celebrating the wonderfulness that is my Mom for Mother’s Day.
