#1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?
I am the eldest of 4 children in our family, so my siblings call me ‘da’, which is a short form for ‘da jie’ (Chinese), meaning eldest sister.
The Boyfriend, who will be family some day, calls me ‘BunBunMakeupTips’ ever since I started this blog. Lol.
#2. What’s a weird habit of yours?
HAHA! I was doing the weird habit the moment I read this question.
I like to look up at my bangs for no reason.
#3. Do you have any weird phobias?
I have an indescribable fear of mannequins. I always dream of them coming alive and chasing me with their long, plastic legs down a deserted, dimly lit alley. Yucks! Thinking of it makes me shiver. I try not to enter shops with too many mannequins.
I went to Google ‘fear of mannequins’ and out came Pediophobia.
Pediophobia is a fear of dolls or, more generally, of “false representation of sentient beings” such as mannequins or robots. The word is derived from the Greek word paidion, meaning “little child”. – Wikipedia
But I’m not afraid of dolls or robots. Just mannequins. Especially bald ones. X(
#4. What’s a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you’re alone?
‘They don’t really care about us’ by Michael Jackson, although I can barely sing it. Enunciating the words (badly) is one thing, getting the accent (quite impossible) is another thing, but it’s the emotions that MJ put into the song that is perfectly inimitable.
#5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?
People who stand on the right of the escalator. It becomes a super big pet peeve when my train is coming and the people standing on the right in front of me don’t want to move, simply because their train on the opposite platform is not here. GAH!
