Hi, there, my dear blog readers. I finally figured out how to do this About Me thing. This really proves that I’m the most techie challenged in the universe. I suck at anything electronic, mechanical, or what not. Anyways, how many readers do I have ? I look at the stats every now and then, and well, the numbers are pitiful. I am not popular. < laughs> Seriously, do I care ? This blog is like my daily diary…. and you know what a diary is, right? It’s supposed to be secret . So, what am I doing here, writing down my thoughts, musing, and talking about my pathetic life ? Ah, it’s so uncool. So, it’s fine, really it is, if nobody reads my stuff here. And, the truth is, what I write here is just a fraction of what’s really going on in my life. Enough said.
So, who am I ? I’m renxkyoko iglesias. This is obviously a fictitious name. I’m a Molecular Microbiology student, planning to go into nursing when I graduate. I was born in the Philippines, lived there until the age of 6 or so until we immigrated here to the US. I have a brother and a sister. My brother is a Mechanical Engineer, and my sister is also a Microbiologist. This is all for now.
Ah, here I am again, updating….. about my parents………. both graduated from the University of the Philippines. There’s really not much I can tell you about me, except I play the violin, and I play it well, if I may say so myself. I love reading books too, if you can believe that. Well, if you’ve read my blog, I just revealed I read Japanese comics and animes. < laughs > However, i can’t forget what my English teacher in middle school once said… “there’s no such thing as literary trash. Read whatever pleases and entertains you. ” So, I went ahead and read all of Robert Ludlum’s and Tom Clancy’s books, John Lecarre’s, Patricia Cornwell’s, John Grisham , and so many others’. Oh, and Jane Austen’s, to satisfy the romantic side of me. Well, as you can see, I’m more into thrillers. But, it doesn’t mean I have not read any of the classics….well, they were required readings in school. lol Oh, and not to forget, I’ve read a fair amount of political books. I’m actually a political animal, so much so that I actively volunteered in Hillary Clinton’s political campaign during the Primaries. It was my first time to vote, and I’ve voted in every election since then. I can discuss with anyone details of the health care reform, but I can’t talk about that on my blog. That would be very boring. This is all for now.
But at the rate I’m going, this about me thing will turn out to be a novelette. lol …. Okay, slum book time…………
1. My favorite foods: I can eat anything, except sauteed worms and stewed bull’s private parts. I don’t like frogs, either. and snakes, dogs, or insects, etc… And i don’t like my food too spicy. I actually have an unladylike appetite, it’s embarrasing. I love all kinds of cakes, all flavours of ice cream, potato chips, grapes, oranges, cherries, banana, banana fries, turrones, Chinese /Japanese/Filipino food, plums,melon, leche flan, Coke Zero, mangos, papaya, avocado shake, mango shake, halo-halo, lumpia ( pic shown here)
2. Movies: I don’t like any gangsta and Mafia movies. I don’t know what my all-time favorite movies are, but , okay, I’ve watched Sleepless in Seattle, While You Were Sleeping, Independence Day, My Cousin Vinny, and all the Harry Potter movies a million times. I love musicals, romance-comedies, science fiction, mystery/thriller, horror, and Disney cartoons. And I love the Resident Evil series. I’m not much into historical and drama movies. I stay away from movies with period costumes. And I like disaster movies too, except Titanic. I hated that movie. Bottomline….. I like happy endings!!!!
3. TV shows: I have no particular favorites. I do tend to watch History, Travel, ID, Current, SyFy, Chiller, Food, Military, National Geographic and sometimes CNN for the news. I like South Park and Sponge Bob, VH1 Classic, and believe it or not, Tori Spelling’s reality show ( though I haven’t watched it for quite a while, so I don’t even know if it’s still on, or been cancelled already). I also like true crime stories. Oh, I forget…. How Clean is Your House ! LOL
