This is where I will attempt to explain myself.
Any minute now.
Okay, here you go:
I am not going to try to be very clever as I make this list.
I live in Hong Kong most of the time.
I admire one-trick ponies. I am not one.
My husband’s name is Tom. He is pretty awesome: check him out
We have been married for 12 years.
I dream of writing and illustrating children’s books.
And reading Philosophy.
And carving wood.
And having my paintings hung in lift lobbies and fancy office buildings.
And running a marathon.
And going back to get my R.A.D Ballet Ele grade.
I have two babies. Layla Belle is 4, Dylan Thomas is 2. If you put Dylan’s name surname-first it is a sentence: Read Dylan Thomas.
Me and my Sister-in-law run Handmade Hong Kong. She is in my top five coolest women category.
My Cantonese is not as good as it should be. Neither is my Mandarin.
I think video games are a waste of time.
I wish Oxford was on the MTR line. We have a family home there and it is my favourite city.
I am an introvert.
I like Capoeria but I doubt I will be able to pursue it any further now that I’m 33.
Needlework calms me down.
My favourite movie is Castaway.
I like people with pointy elfin ears.
I also like people who look a bit like monkeys but this music video totally freaks me out: this one
I am half Chinese and half Welsh. When I meet people they usually think I’m Spanish because of my name. When I take my son out people stare at us. I think they are wondering if I am the maid.
I am an imperfectionist. Zero eye for detail. THERE WILL BE TYPOS.
I am not as patient as I would like to be. I DO NOT LABOUR OVER POSTS FOR HOURS.
I am not afraid of failure.
I am fascinated by giants.
When I was 17 I successfully ollied up one step on my skateboard.
I am a committed Christian. I WILL PROBABLY MENTION THIS IN SOME POSTS SO HOPE THAT DOESN’T OFFEND :)
I hate it when people bite down when they are pulling their fork out of their mouth.
I have learned to play & subsequently abandoned the following instruments: piano, cello, saxaphone, harmonica and bass guitar.
I still sing and play acoustic but not very well at all. But that doesn’t stop me.
I am somewhat attracted to the Amish lifestyle.
I am a closet wearer of eyeglasses. When I put them on I feel clever. Something like Homer Simpson doing his taxes.
I have gotten off two buses because someone farted really badly.
I like country music.
I’m really crap at talking on the phone. Don’t call me. I’m better in writing.
I am going to go to bed now.
