Layering on the Link Love

OK folks, I thought that I should do something wacky, deposit some goodwill in emotional bank accounts and do the meme thing upon the advice of "Da Jie" and good friend eastcoastlife, an A-list blogger. For this I was tagged by environmentalist Pauline. I still owe tags by Oceanskies and Zeezee and will try to work on them soon.

Hair Colour : Black and some white (while stocks last)
Righty or Lefty : Righty

Layer Two :On The Inside
Your Heritage : Teochew (dad Teochew, mum Shanghainese)
Your Fears : Losing my loved ones and losing myself through overwork
Your Weakness : "Red, red wine makes me feel so fine..."
Your Perfect Pizza : Seafood, with lots of calamari, prawns, scallops, clams, mozarella, a sprinkling of rocket greens and chilli peppers. Sedap!

Layer Three :Yesterday, Today , Tomorrow
Your Thoughts First Waking Up : "Huhhh....its what already?" with eyes half closed and body half asleep.
Your Bedtime : Ponderous and full of thoughts
Your Most Missed Memory : My childhood days in a house with a garden at Serangoon Garden Way

Layer Four : Your Pick
Pepsi or Coke : Neither, as I don't drink soft drinks.
McDonald's or Burger King : Definitely Burger King.
Single or Group Dates : Either was fine. Now of course only with my dearest wife. ;)
Adidas or Nike : Partial towards Nike for their cutting edge designs and better running shoes
Tea or Nestea : Tea for sure. Nestea is too sweet!
Chocolate or Vanilla : Cocoa for me.
Cappucino or Coffee : Coffee

Curse: Unfortunately yes especially in stressful situations
Take a shower : Definitely... this is Singapore not Siberia!
Have a crush : The only thing I crush nowadays are fruits in the morning
Think you've been in love: Definitely. The two greatest love in my life is my wife and my son. ;)
Go to school : I wish I can go back to school again and do my masters. That's one of the "must dos" in my life.
Want to get married : I am already married!
Believe in yourself : I sure hope and think so. I also believe that one day I will become an entrepreneur and that day is coming.
Think you're a health freak : I drink blended fruits for breakfast almost every day, love vegetables, try to jog 3 to 4 times a week and drink lots of water in the morning.

Changed Who You Were To Fit In : Sadly, in my line of work, I have to do it all the time. I am an introverted person by nature who loves a quiet simple life. However, at work, I have to be extroverted, a social butterfly and a diplomat all rolled into one.
