5 Weird Things
Well, I consider myself lucky to have to reveal my 5 weird spots. Nehh…ndry?
Only one thing that bothers me though, why only 5?
So here they are, 5 weird things about me:
1. Whenever possible, I can be absolutely picky when it comes to food.
One famous example: I have different preferences for egg, depending on how it is done. I only eat the white egg of boiled egg. For un oeuf plat or telur mata sapi or fried egg, I'll eat the egg yolk, only if it's half cooked. Meanwhile, the white egg should not be burned nor crunchy. For omelette, I only eat the outer part, the crunchy side, not the middle part.
2. I am obsessed with clean public toilet.
I guess it's just a part of my clean-freakiness. I don't mind paying 2 CHF for a clean public toilet (I love you Mr. Clean), and I can be easily impressed by any clean public toliet. I believe that clean public toilet is a sign of clean country, town, or society. 🙂
3. When I read a book, I read the ending first or after few chapters.
I know it's a shameful thing to do, but I just can't help it! I don't have enough patience whatsoever. Besides, I'll know if a book is a good one when it is able to persuade me not to read the ending before I am supposed to. A good book will capture my heart and soul, and make me eager to follow the ride and not taking the short cut.
But it doesn't mean that I will not finish the book after I read the ending. I will read back again, knowing the ending already, and finish it like a good school girl.
4. I am a mono-maniac.
When I like something, I really like it. I read Harry Potter at least 3 times for each volume in 3 different languages. My favorite books have been read more than 10 times. My favorite movies have been watched more than 10 times, and I even remember the lines!
Unfortunately, this also means that I don't like to try something new. I will stick to the same author, the same food, the same place, the same restaurant, etc.
5. I am verbally and physically expressive.
Telling a story sometimes can become a solo performance in my case. I'll make noises, gestures, faces, mimicries while doing the story-telling. It's fun to watch and for this some people consider me as funny. But sometimes it makes me look stupid.
Of course I looked stupid when, in my frustation of french vocabulary gap, I described canard as quink quink (with flapping gesture)!
