2. When it comes to travel, I plan carefully for others but rarely for myself because I believe getting lost can be a great adventure. It happened before.
3. I love roasted lamb. Especially those not thickly marinated and cooked in sand.
4. I hate getting stuck in a festive season traffic jam especially at Senawang.
5. I`d love to go fishing and hope P5 will teach me how and buy me an ugly stick for starters.
6. The truth is I can be very happy with small things. Can be satisfied very easily. That`s why I can still wear my worn down shoes. Sometimes just for fun I act as someone with a different personality. People who know me well understand the joke but others may not.
7. I`m quite sentimental. It was pointed out to me bluntly some years back.
So those were my BIG 7. They may not be totally true and even the true ones are only true at the time of publish. The not so true ones are not really lies but a result of a condition called hypoglisemia + intermitten autapathic fever.
