25 random things about me

A meme, tagged in Facebook…

Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.
To do this, go to “Notes” under tabs (+) on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.)


01. I like to refer myself as a ‘semi-perfectionist’. I expect some things to be perfect, and some things not.

02. I had my first nosebleed in a fight with a school bus buddy named Lingam. He was such a badass.

03. I am not scared of ghosts, but I am fucking terrified of roaches.

04. The first time I ever gambled in a casino was at Genting. I won a few hundred bucks that day and used the money to purchase the body of a Nikon FM2 mechanical camera.

05. I had my second nosebleed after a back flip into a pool went awry and I landed chest on.

06. I named my daughter Regine after a popular Filipino hootchie singer/actress Regine Velasquez.

07. I don’t have very good hearing on both my ears. It has been like this since I was a teenager.

08. …but for what I lack in hearing, I make up with my olfactory ability. I believe I have this thing for smell.

09. I am addicted to coffee. I can have as many as 6 mugs of coffee in a day.

10. I have a callus under my left foot which is super fun to peel at when watching movies.

11. I spend about 20 minutes cleaning my mouth before sleep every night. Pick and floss – 5 minutes. Gargle with water – 10 minutes. Brushing (electronic on weekends) – 5 minutes. Gargle again with mouthwash – ~1 minute.

12. I was brought up listening to Bee Gees and The Beatles.

13. I never get the flush when I imbibe. I could still be looking normal despite being drunk like a fuck.

14. I am very sensitive to heat and ventilation. I perspire heavily when there is too much heat, or lack of ventilation.

15. …that’s why I use deodorant and fragrance all the time – even at work.

16. I have not bought a computer for myself since 1998. The computers I have been using all these while were all assigned company properties.

17. I have never given flowers to any girl before. My past Valentine’s Day gifts were all cheap cards with custom recorded cassettes. (fyi, they all worked great)

18. My wife and I never wear our wedding rings, because both of us hate wearing jewelry.

19. I recently developed this obsession for Jasmine fragrance. My car is smelling like a Jasmine now.

20. I don’t fancy watching porno, contrary to the popular belief that I do…

21. I had a cosmetic surgery on my upper lip before… from an accident…

22. I prefer matured women than teenage chicks when it comes to opposite attraction.

23. I have always fantasized myself being a serial killer. There are so many people that I could kill if I ever become one.

24. I have single eyelids. But if I rub my eyes hard enough, I get triple folds. Really.

25. My command of Mandarin sucks donkey cock.

  8. sweewon says:

    Gargling needs 10 minutes? I normally do for 20 seconds, with Listerine laa -_-“

  9. michaelooi says:

    sweewon – You’re doing a low level gargling. After thorough flossing, I will gargle thoroughly with water (usually about half a liter) to remove remnants of food stuck in my teeth, the only I go to brushing. The mouth wash (30 secs – 1 min) gargle only comes at the final stage.

    Dude, they should make you THE example to follow when they do those stupid rounds at the schools to get kiddies to learn oral hygiene!
