jumping on the meme bandwagon. ;)
What is the geekiest part of your music collection?
actually, i had a hard time thinking up this one. though possibly it’s got to be that whole collection (6 cds ok!) of classical music i pressed my parents to buy when i was about 9 or 10. vague pretensions to intellectual superiority, that was, with all that ‘i must get into classical mood to play classical music on the piano’ rubbish. heh! it helped general knowledge though. and makes you sound like you have culture. hahaha.
What is your secret guaranteed weeping movie?
it’s not even a movie but a really really old videotaped version of a cantonese opera. it’s called ‘di4 nu3 hua1’ (or dai noi fa in cantonese, as i first knew it as) and it’s about a princess (changping) and her lover (and also v brilliant general/statesman, zhou shixian) amidst the imminent overthrow of the ming dynasty, and her highly irritating/evil/manipulative sister who wants him all to herself. sounds typical, i know, but it’s just so so sad. & black and white always rocks.
If you could have plastic surgery, what would you have done?
i’m not particularly agitated about how i look though there are plenty of people who look loads better than i do, so plastic surgery is an unnecessary pain in ..wherever. laser surgery is fine though – i look terrible in specs and contacts are such a pain (literally), especially when they’re hard.
Do you have a completely irrational fear?
yes (: that if i don’t close the door when i sleep at home (only at night) a t-rex will loom at my door and tear me up piece by piece. and i race up the stairs at night because i’m scared a wolf will be chasing me. don’t ask.

when i’m staring right out into space, which i realise i do really often

Who would play you in a movie?
i have no idea. some klutzy, insecure and very proud loser.
What do you carry with you at all times?
my ipod and ezlink card, and phone. i’ve always thought that if i got robbed/kidnapped having an ezlink card (that’s virtually unrobbable anyway, and only a loser would rob someone of an ezlink card) would be quite useful to get home. and a phone – well, maybe i could call the police. HAHA. =x

Favorite trait of the opposite sex?
i’d say shoulders or hands but i never remember how they look and that’s not why you like someone anyway. so, eyes, because that’s about all i remember.

What’s one car you will never buy?
a proton anything.
What kind of books do you like to read?
mostly fiction because my attention span and intellect are just about there. i like utopian/dystopian fiction (though someone in my class hates them i can’t rmb who) and satires. things about controlled realities, or emotions. i love marquez, and murakami, and roald dahl, the magician from my childhood. occasionally i read politics, gender studies, sociology, philosophy – if my mind can take it. usually it can’t and i take about 2 or 3 months to get through just one.
