What is up with 11?

Tagged by Nadia on ridiculousME

Felt really bored and I decided to do this tag. Been ignoring it from Jeng and Azila simply because I had other matters at hand. I guess it all depends on the mood. But I will do them later. Hope you enjoy this one first. :)



TERMS and CONDITIONS:
1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person must post 11 things about themselves in their journal.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post. And create 11 new questions for the people you tagged to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
5. Go to their page and tell them you have tagged HIM/HER.
6. No tag back!
7. No stuff in the tagging section about “YOU ARE TAGGED IF YOU ARE READING THIS” YOU LEGITIMATELY (a.k.a REALLY, TRUST, WITH ALL HONESTY) have tagged 11 people.



11 things about myself:



1. I am now curious; why 11? Could there be a double meaning here? Is there a cryptic message? I wonder...
 "What happened to 7?"

2. Like I mentioned above, I am a curious person. I tend to wonder at things that sometimes can be just trivial but still I would try my best to find the answers. Example: 'Why do people in post-apocalyptic movies like "The Book of Eli" and "The Road" keep checking out each others hands?' I know the answer. Curious? Hehe..

  "...it never ends."

3. I love to play computer games. But alas, my personal laptop is somewhat old and I cannot play the newer games. All the games from 2006 and above, would either just crash or lag to the point of being frozen in time. Bummer...

4. I am good at taking care of my belongings. My laptop has been with me for five years now and rarely do I have to reformat it. It's not in its peak condition but it still looks nice and serves its purpose.

5. I love to read books. I have four shelves in my room just filled with reading materials. I've loved fantasy since I was a kid but lately I've been reading other genres as well. Just trying to broaden my horizons.

"I wish I had one like that. The shelves I mean."

6. My family is my home; my room is my sanctuary. 

7. I like to reminisce about the good old days. Lately I keep looking back at the cartoons that I loved to watch whenever I came back from school. Back before we had Astro, there was Mega TV. Cartoon Network, to me, was the most incredible channel ever at the time. Swat Kats, Scooby Doo, Dexter's Laboratory and Top Cat are just a few of the many favourite cartoons I had back then. 

8. One of my many interests is to listen to songs from movies. No, not the soundtrack but the original score. Though I tend to like the scores base on the composers, usually my interest lies on individual film scores. Thomas Newman, Carter Burwell and James Horner are some of my favourite composers. Films like 'The Last of the Mohicans' and 'Road to Perdition' have some of the best scores I have ever heard.

9. I know that most of the time people tend to love the heroes or protagonist in stories but I somehow will mostly relate to the anti hero or antagonist more. I find their motivations to do things intriguing. The only hero that I would put above any character would probably be Batman. I've been a Batman buff since I was a kid. My family can certainly attest to that. The reason is that he has suffered the worst thing that could happen to a child, which is seeing your parents die before you, and still became a good person in the end. Usually it's the other way around.

 "Your turn doctor. Tell me! What do YOU see?" - Rorschach 

10. I'm certainly positive that I've mentioned this a couple of times but I love cheese. Cheddar, Blue, Parmesan or Gouda, I just love them all.

"Ya Allah..nikmat."

11. I believe that 11 questions can be long for one to answer about one's self but it sure is too short to describe the life and times of someone.



11 questions given by the author of ridiculousME, Nadia:



1.How are you?

I am fine..I think. What about you?

2.Coffee or Hot Chocolate?

Hot chocolate! Not because I love it so much but because I usually get heartburn from drinking coffee. Ouch!

3. What do you think of classical music?

I don't have any personal favourites mainly because I don't listen so much to it. I'm not well versed on the subject. But I do appreciate whenever I hear it. Probably because I love instrumental and orchestral music. 

4. Describe ‘ridiculousME.wordpress.com’.

I think it's the worst ever!! Hahaha just kidding. I love the variations of posts that it has to offer. Sometimes it is informative and at times it can be very personal. Kudos to you!

5. Why do you stay up late?

I stay up late for a lot of reasons. Sometimes I read books or watch a movie. Can't seem to do them at any other time.

6. When is your favourite time of a day?

Night. I am nocturnal. Bats are nocturnal. Am I a bat? Or maybe I'm Batman. (this is what happens to you for staying up so late)

7. What do you think of Pak Li Kopitiam?

I think that it's a bit pricey. And the food isn't THAT great.

8. Describe ‘Little Kids’

Is this a TV show? I'm confused by the quotation marks. If it's about human offspring, then I would have to say that they are adorable. Sometimes they can get on your nerves with their silly antics but most of the time they're harmless....most of the time....

9. What do you think is the meaning to this sentence “where is thy blush?” (shaza je yg tau…)

'Di manakah malu anda?' (translation) 

10. What is your favourite cake served at Secret Recipe?

Chocolate Indulgence. Mainly because it's the only cake that I know the name. 

11. Are you tired answering these questions?

I was tired before answering them. Now I'm just sleepy. Zzzz...( _ _)

1. If you are a fictional character which would you prefer to be, a hero or a villain? Why?
2. What would your powers/abilities be and why?
3. What would your moniker/nickname be?
4. Where would your secret hideout be?
5. What is your Facebook or E-mail password?
6. If you could stay in another country, where would it be? Why?
7. On a bright sunny day, do you prefer to stay at home or go out? Why?
8. How would you define marriage?
9. What do you think will make you happy and content with your life?
10. During times of stress, what do you do to calm yourself?
