Four jobs you’ve had in your life:

  1. Dishwasher at Edward’s College, O’Connor, Perth (my parents operated the canteen)
  2. Newsagent counter-clerk at Court News, West Perth (owned by my parents)
  3. Waiter at Penang Kopi Tiam, Kardinya, Perth (owned by my parents)
  4. Restaurant manager at Mix, Nedlands, Perth (my restaurant)

Four movies you could watch over and over:

  1. Die Hard
  2. Hard Boiled
  3. When Harry Met Sally
  4. Cruel Intentions

Four places you’ve lived:

  1. SS2 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
  2. Marcus Avenue, Booragoon, Perth (what are the odds?)
  3. Garland Court, Kardinya, Perth
  4. Stewart Way, Kardinya, Perth

Four TV shows you love to watch:

  1. CSI (all 3 of them – ok I cheated there)
  2. Law & Order (all 3 of them – ok I cheated here again)
  3. House, MD
  4. Grey’s Anatomy

caveat: Asking a TV addict to just choose 4 favourite programs is unusual torture. πŸ˜› I’ve left out programs on Foxtel and have restricted myself to shows that are on air now. Suffice to say, I watch a lot of TV.

Four places you’ve been on holiday:

  1. Tokyo, Japan
  2. London, UK
  3. Singapore
  4. Sydney, Australia

caveat: my parents loved to travel when I was younger and I’ve left out many places that I didn’t organise the trip to myself.

Four websites you visit daily:

  1. Bloglines (by extension all of the blogs on my bloglines – ok I cheated again, sue me!)
  2. News.com.au
  3. Sydney Morning Herald
  4. Dilbert

caveat: a limitation of 4 is once again too little for an IT professional. I’m v. scatter-brained when it comes to my web-surfing. I also read a lot of tech sites and other international news sites.

Four of your favourite foods:

  1. Peanut-butter on toast – every morning since god knows when.
  2. Nissin instant noodles – favourite flavours are XO-sauce and Tonkatsu
  3. Steaks – medium-rare
  4. Fried Kuay Teow

caveat: and many many more … why limit yourself when the world is your smorgasboard? πŸ™‚

Four places you’d rather be (I’m gonna give this a twist):

  1. To eat: Penang
  2. To party: KL/Singapore (I’m not good at keeping to limits :P)
  3. To immerse in a gigantic cultural melting-pot: NY/London
  4. To do nothing: a beach in Langkawi (because it’s still unspoilt and the tourists are not overwhelming), a hot-spring anywhere in Japan (oh-so relaxing and quiet)

… because there’s no place I’d rather be, to live than here in Perth. Not only because I’ve got my family and good friends here, but also because it has a little bit of the 4 things that I’ve listed above.

I am not gonna tag ppl because I don’t tag ppl with memes – some don’t like it, and when some don’t do it I feel all rejected. πŸ˜›

    This has no relation to your post, but I just realised you were back in SG for a while. Dang, if only we had met up! Ok, we don’t exactly know each other, but hey, that’s one good thing about having a blog – meeting and knowing other bloggers. Hopefully we can meet the next time you’re here!
