About

I have no idea what to write about myself, without sounding pompous, conceited, supercilious or self-aggrandizing.  Or worse, exhibit a combination of these traits.

But I don’t want to remain a ‘blank page’.

Okay, here goes.

1.  I love coffee and can drink the beverage at any time of the day without sleeping problems.  I like my coffee hot, strong and bitter, without sugar, lots of foamy milk and hopefully comes with charming latte art.   The most expensive coffee I have tasted so far is Luwak.  Yeah, that’s the one – the civet cat poo.

2.  I cannot squat with my soles flat on the ground without falling backwards.  Something about my Archilles tendon being too tight.  I think it is hereditary. My husband thinks it is because my butt is too heavy.

3.  I was born in the year of the Rabbit.  Go figure my age.

4.  I discovered that my body is inflexible at the age of six when my mother enrolled me in ballet classes.  She switched me to piano lessons shortly after and I learnt that my inflexibility didn’t extend to the fingers.  Or the mind.  Thank goodness.

5.  I am a Scorpio/Aquarius.  I am quite sure this Sun-Moon combination does not explain why I am messy, disorganised and all over the place most of the time, but I like to think it does.

6.  I can’t swim and I hate going into the water.  Except when I am in the shower or soaking in a bathtub.

7.  One of the things that I like best is to tuck myself in bed with a book and a cup of hot tea or coffee.  I haven’t done this since I got married ten years ago because one of the ground rules set by the husband being that I am not allowed to bring food into the bedroom.  Also, the bedside table is too cluttered to accommodate a cuppa.

8. I sleep face down and I don’t like to make the bed.

9.  What about alcohol?  Always, mojitos, martinis and magaritas – in that order.  Sometimes, the milky-coffee-liqueur sort over ice – Bailey’s, Kahlua and Sheridan.  Before bedtime, Frangelico with milk.  Oh, not to forget o-sake, soju and makgeoli.  And shaoxing jiu.  Plus a good bottle of red wine.

10.  Life is short, always have fun as far as possible and as much as I can.

11.  I am right-handed but I hold my spoon with the left hand.  One of those things about my brain.

12. Say what you mean and mean what you say.  Otherwise, shud-dup lah.

13.  And do you know what is it about a man that gives me butterflies in the stomach?  His HANDS.  Not just any type of hands, by the way.  I am not that easy!

14.  I have gotten this far without saying anything about Rain, Korean pop and Korean entertainment.  Not bad, I am not that obsessed after all.

15.  Why the blog name ‘Bee’?  It is part of my name and reminds me of my other favourite Muhammed Ali quote: “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” Erm, ‘Bee’ is also phonetically similar to the moniker of my favourite Korean pop star. I am such a fan-girl.

16.  Why the domain address “ten-ele-ven”?  I couldn’t think of anything interesting so I used my date of birth.

17.  What do I write about?  Basically, anything that comes to my mind that I feel like writing.  Nothing of significance or intellectually stimulating, really.  This blog is my ‘memory catchment area’ where I jot down places that I have been to, things that I have done, movies I have watched, etc.  You get the picture.  This is all about me having a spot of fun daily, away from the hum-drum of working life.
