I've Been Tagged: The Monkey's Meme

Monday, June 08, 2009
I have been tagged through Facebook by my dear friend Amanda from Amanda's World and AGuthrieWords. I love tags, so thank you!

1. Name one person who made you smile today?
It's still 7.39 am here, so I haven't met anyone particular than my family today. But they are worth more than a million smiles.

2. What were you doing at 8am this morning? It's about 20 minutes before 8am, so it didn't happen yet. I have been trying to get my son to take a bath. Let's see, if I have succeeded by 8am. It's so hard to get him into the bathroom, and once he's in... it's even harder to get him out.

3. What were you doing 45 minutes ago? Dropping of my daughter to one of her school activities.

4. What is your favorite candy bar? Toblerone

5. Have you ever been to a strip club? Nope, never.

6. What was the last thing you had to drink? Water.

7. What was the last thing you ate? Nasi uduk

8. The last sporting event you watched? I rarely watch sporting events on TV, except accompanying my husband to watch football from time to time. But I watch my children swim almost every week. That is an important sporting event too, don't you think.

9. Do you go to church every Sunday? No, I'm a Muslim.

10. Do you prefer Chinese food over pizza? I like both. So it depends on my mood.

11. What are you doing tomorrow? I do a lot of stuff, everyday.

12. What do you think of when you hear Australia? Forgive me lovely Australian scenery and adorable kangaroos and koalas, but right now Hugh Jackman is occupying my mind. LOL

13. Biggest annoyance right now? I don't get easily annoyed, but there are these days where everything seems to happen at once. That can be real bugging, if you don't take One Step At A Time!

14. Last song listened to? OST. Bukan Cinta Biasa (which means Not An Ordinary Love in Indonesia) by Afgan. He is one of my favorite Indonesian male singers right now. I found this video clip, which includes a little translation at the top of the screen.

15. Do you have a maid service clean your house? I have someone helping me out to iron our laundry, but the rest is done by myself with the help of my family.

16. Are you jealous of anyone? I hope there will be no extreme reasons to be jealous. I think a little bit of jealousy always encounters our lifes. Like, I do want to live in the mountains or at the beach. Ugh, I think I'm getting green of envy now. LOL

17. Is anyone jealous of you? That's not up to me to answer.

18. What do you usually do during the day? Like I said, I do a lot of stuff. Taking care of my household and the children, photography and blogging, helping out my parents in a family business. There's always something to do.

19. Do you hate anyone that you know right now? Nope, I have great family and friends. I agree to those who say hate is a strong word. But, there are people I like to avoid. You know, the ones with so much hatred and prejudice that makes no sense or the gossipy and minding others business kind of types. Sticking around them usually has no good outcomes.

20. Are you thinking about someone right now? My family and friends are always in my thoughts.

Feel free to play along, if you are up to it! Have a wonderful week, everyone.

10 appreciated note(s):

Never heard of Afgan but I did enjoy the music. I must say. He sings well. Great answers to this...you did marvelous...simply marvelous. But I have one question...Muslims...if you don't go to church what do you do and how often?...I don't mean to sound stupid...I just wanna learn more about you :)

RA said...

That doesn't sound stupid at all, Thom. It's okay to ask. But I don't know, if I'm good at explaining and can keep it simple. Basically, we do a formal prayer called shalat that includes specified body movements five times a day at dawn (fajr), noon (dhuhr), in the afternoon (asr), at sunset (maghrib) and nightfall (isha'a). You can perform it by yourself in any ritually clean environment, but it is preferred to carry out together in a Mosque.

Thank you for the information. And yes I see you emailed me with this as well. I check any feedback on comments when I see a new post on the blog. It's the only way I know how to keep up without getting too many comments in my reader LOL. So you don't go to a Mosque then like on one day of the week? It's an everyday thing I take it? Thanks for the answers my friend :)

Wish I had some time to play along on this, but not this week. I sure enjoyed reading about you :-)

Inday said...

Aha, Hugh Jackman's fan. And you love Toblerone too? I do!

I would like to listen to your Indonesian Love music. Meantime, I'm still searching for that linky blog to link in my Random.

I need to help some bloggers who do not know how to do it. They need help. And am going to feature your blog that explains clearly about how to do it. :)
