10 Facts About Me Tag

This post has been circulating over Instagram, but I'm going to do it here on this little blog instead! Here are 10 facts about me, which you may or may not already know haha.

1. I love home styling, decor, and organization.

I've always enjoyed reading home magazines or scrolling through never ending feeds of home decor and styling. In eight months I will finally get to style my first home with C, and I wonder if I can create a space as wonderful and dreamy as all the ones I see. Some of the Instagram accounts that I follow for home inspo include @smpliving@tryfenah@homesensecanada and many others!

2. I'm always in a state of wanderlust.

I don't get to travel often, but when I do I try to soak it all in and make the most of it! I  really enjoy seeing beautiful views, experiencing different cultures, and trying new foods. No matter how big or small the trip may be, I try to go whenever the opportunity comes up. I'm in a life stage where travelling abroad and around with friends is finally feasible (I'm finally earning enough money to do so haha) so I'm looking forward to that!

3. My food preferences.

Tim Hortons Steeped Tea with 2 creams. Ice coffee. Coco's hot/cold jasmine milk tea with tapioca, 50% sugar. HK style milk tea. Hashbrowns. Cookies n' cream ice cream. Salmon avocado sushi roll. Dumplings. Butter croissants warmed up. Starbucks chocolate chip cookie warmed up. Chinese baked pork chop and rice with tomato sauce. French toast with peanut butter. Breaded chicken wings with honey garlic and ranch. Costco hotdog with ketchup and onions. Aroma's Matcha latte. Hainanese chicken with flavoured rice. Baked potato with butter and sour cream. Mcdonald's salad with balsamic dressing. Kekou's jasmine tea and HK milk tea gelato. Pesto cream sauce pasta. Milk chocolate. Ringolos. Tim Hortons sausage and egg breakfast croissant. Creme brulee. All Star's Cleopatra fries. 
You get me any of these and I will love you forever and ever. 

4. I like building things. 

I find it super fun to build Ikea furniture, Lego, or Japanese Gundam models. When I was a kid, I would play dress up with my Barbies but also build my Bionicles. I would get into fights with my brother because I would take apart his Bionicle figures so that I can build it again haha. C previously wanted to purchase the Star Wars Lego Death Star to build... I sadly said no because of the price (but in my heart I wanted to say yes so badly). 

5. I'm not artsy at all. 

I'm not the greatest at thinking outside of the box, which correlates to my non-existent skills in anything art-related. I live vicariously through other artsy people, and appreciate their creative work instead. Some of the the artists that I follow on Instagram include

6. I'm actually a shy person.

I think the best term to describe me is an outgoing introvert. I'm actually very shy when it comes to meeting new people, and it takes a lot of energy for me to do small talk (networking is definitely not my thing haha). However, once I've broken the ice with someone and they are a person that I spend more time with, I open up a lot more. I love to spend quality time with my close friends, and it's pretty much on a weekly basis. So if you wanna be my friend, just force me to chat with ya and I'll get more comfortable in time! 

7. Physical features.

My right eye has a monolid and my left eye has a double lid (which makes applying eyeliner evenly very difficult). The veins on the top of my right hand form a heart. My fingers are double jointed. I have two piercings in my left ear and one on my right. I like sleeping on my side. I have very small wrists (which is why I don't play volleyball because they hurt so much afterwards). 

8. The only item I collect is eyewear.

It's definitely an influence from my career, but I love my collection of sunglasses and eyeglasses. An eyewear collection post is coming soon so stay tuned for that. 

9. My favourite Bible verse is 1 Thessalonians 5:16.

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."

10. I am older than C.

I am older than C but C looks older than me... so that works out perfectly LOL. I am older than C by 9 months, however we're born in different years.

  1. Love this post! Your facts are so fun and sweet. I am 100% the same way about being an outgoing introvert (#6!). I am a little nervous and apprehensive in new situations, but once we're friends, it's hard to shut me up! :) Thank you for sharing! I have my own version of this post going up this week (Natalie tagged me as well)

  2. Okay, if we ever met up for food, we would pretty much be ordering the exact same thing! I absolutely LOOOOVE salmon avocado rolls and HK Style Milk Tea (sadly my favourite store is really far from me).

  3. I am an outgoing introvert as well!

    Haha. I wanted to ask about how you do your eyeliner, because I have the same eyelid issue (one monolid and one double lid). I would love to know your tricks ❤️
