Hello, again. Renxkyoko Iglesias here.
Okay. I can’t believe the first 2 sentences above have been in my draft for 2 days already. Good thing I’m getting tagged. The questions save me from having no topic to talk about at all. But then, I don’t always have any specific topic, anyway. I write down what I’m thinking at the moment, which is some kind of a chopsuey of anything that comes to mind. So I need to thank you, readers, for patiently reading my crap.
So, first off…..my responses to 35andupcynicismonhold‘s questions:
1. Describe that one classmate from high school that you cannot forget.
Oh, my gosh ! A walk down memory lane, revisiting old hurts ? Now, how do I describe her…. lemme think………SHE’S AN UGLY BITCH WITH AN UGLY HEART ! SHE BETRAYED ME ! ! !
2. What is your least liked task at home/in the house. Why?
Cleaning the toilet… Why ? Coz it’s the toilet ? Coz that ‘s where people do their smelly business ?
3. Would you rather take care of plants or animals (pets)? Why?
Plants……. What can I say? They are beautiful. ( although we have a dog that we love so much )
4. What is that song that you remember because it has been your mother’s or father’s favorite?
My father’s favorite, dedicated to Mom. This was their wedding song and this will be my Wedding Song, too ! ! Ladies, listen to the lyrics ( and wonderful melody ) . I wish, one day, a guy would tell me the same thing.
5. What was the last movie that really let you down? Why?
Eragon, from the book Eragon. It was the worst adaptation so far. Even the author got depressed.
6. Which part of your body you always say could use change or improvement but never got around to (doing)?
None. I’m not saying I’m perfect, hahaha….. Unless I do a Michael Jackson… Oh, wait, I hope to go from Cup B to Cup D, bahahaha !
7. What is that one trick/joke/antic that your friends constantly pull on you? What is your usual reaction?
8. When your family members tease you, what is it usually about? How do you get back? ^^
I don’t get teased… I get pressured to do the best I can. Ever heard of Asian Tiger Moms? This has also become a problem of most young Asians here in the US. ….too much pressure. Geez, I even got pressured to unlike a guy coz he didn’t make the grade. And I gave in. I know , I was horrible. I sucked, big time. I talked about that here.
9. Are you a person of strong political opinions? Why or why not?
I think I’m highly politicized so much so that I won’t get together with a guy whose strong political opinion is completely opposite to mine. Too stressful.
10. Creativity or popularity? What are your chances of achieving it in the next five(5) years (in a scale of 1 to 10). State your reason in maximum of five sentences.
I prefer Creativity but there’s snowball’s chance in hell I can achieve that in 5 years/
Popularity in the entertainment business? I think that’s doable. Not here in the US though. Maybe I’ll go to Asia and try my hand at becoming an idol, like my K-pop idols. Muahahah ! Now, don’t roll your eyes, smirk and snicker behind my back, my friend, coz some person actually approached and tried to recruit me right after my 15 minutes of fame at a concert with Jason Derulo. I ‘ve kept the business card. And I actually seriously thought about this ….. well, just for a while. ~.^ I’m dreaming I’m the ” star ” there on the stage. (That’s me on the stage. ) Problem is, I don’t know how to sing. (^____^) # Oh, and sorry for recycling this photo. LOL
11. Which do you think is promoted more by blogging – alignment of people with similar interests or tolerance among people with varying lives, opinions and beliefs? Why?
I have no idea why people read my blog, to be honest. There’s nothing to learn from me, lol. I do tend to align with bloggers whose beliefs are similar to mine.
I have another set of questions from jishifruit that I need to answer, but I’ll save that for later.
I wrote about our relatives from the Philippines ( husband and wife, and their 3 kids, aged 7, 12 and 14 ) who are coming over to the US for a visit. They’ll be here on May 2 and will be staying with us for 2 weeks. So, like any other family that are going to host guests, we started preparing the house for their visit….. clean the garden, shampoo the rugs, change the curtains, etc. Mom and I broke our backs weeding, and making the garden nice and pretty. Well, we all know how gardens look during winter… everything is brown and dead, but spring is here, and flowers have started to sprout…… so pretty ! And Mom and I are so very eager to show them off.
The photos above were taken last week. Then Friday, Dad came home early with a friend. He decided on his own to “repair” the concrete pathway with his friend, and there and then started digging up the roots off the front lawn and jackhammered the concrete pathway. Sunday, today, this is what our front garden looks like….. several days of back breaking hard work gone to waste.
Darn it , Dad ! Why now ? Just 3 weeks before they arrive and you mess it up ? Do you expect the lawn to grow nicely in 3 weeks ? And he isn’t supposed to spend so much before we leave for Europe in June.
Oh, about our European tour…. I talked about that here 8 months ago. Now it’s less than 2 1/2 months to go. We leave on June 16. It’s a one month pre-paid guided tour of 9 countries… England, France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, and Monaco. I’m going with my mother, my 13 year old cuzin, and my aunt. My aunt will be coming from the Philippines and we’ll meet up with her in London, where the tour starts. I’m starting to get excited now. , not so much 8 months ago when we signed up for the tour. Hey, do I have a reader from any of these countries? How’s the weather out there from June to July ? We are only allowed one luggage each, so we really need to choose our clothes carefully. It will be mostly bus tour. The bus can accomodate only one luggage per person.
Well, this is all for now. So, have a good day, be nice, and PEACE ! !
