8 Tag Questions

Tuesday, September 07, 2010
My friend Amanda @ Bloggin' with Amanda has been tagged with 8 tag questions and passed them on to me. I need to answer these questions and then tag 8 others. Thanks for the tag, Amanda. Okay, let's start!

1. Why did you start blogging?

I didn't really know what blogging was when I started out writing on my first blog at Friendster. I think, back then I must have seen it as a sort of online diary. The first post Superman VS Batman in June 2008 was something about my son and his panties. LOL

My friends Alex and Waileng were the ones who brought me into real blogging. We moved together from Friendster to Blogger in January 2009, and it was a month after that when I came upon these fascinating photo memes that lead me to many new wonderful societies and friends in our Blogosphere.

2. If you could travel anywhere in the world with no restriction of costs, where would it be and why?

This might sound cliche, but I would want to travel to the most beautiful places in the world. Places that give away tranquility and still show the pure beauty of mother earth. You'll come on stunning photos, when you search for this keyword on Google Images. Wow!

3. Did you have a teacher in school that had a great influence on your life? If so, what?

I've been blessed with many wonderful teachers who have taught me about life. This reminds me of a quote I just wrote on my FB status for Teacher's Day earlier this month

"The true value of a teacher is determined not by what he knows, nor by his ability to impart what he knows, but by his ability to stimulate in others a desire to know."

~Prof. Robert Lee Madison

4. If you could spend the day with a famous person, who would it be, and what would you do?

Depends on what side of my personality takes over that day. Right now, I'm on holidays. The vacation mood is dominating and I would say bring Gerard Butler or Hugh Jackman to me. Do I have to explain more?

5. Toilet paper – over or under?

To be totally truth, I have no idea what the question means. English is not my mother language, you know.

6. Name one thing in your life that you would do over, if possible.

This is a tricky question. I admit that there are some things in life I would love to do over again, but I don't know about the new outcomes. Would circumstances really become better or worse? Like the butterfly effect, some things are just meant to be a certain way. I kind of like my position now. So, no. I'll skip on that.

7. Tell about your pets – if any.

We have cats inside and outside the house, plus a turtle. Before that we also had a marmot and hamsters, but unfortunately I was allergic. Add these critters with two kids and you have plenty of stories to tell. Let me give you a favorite and spare you.

8. Do you live in a small town or a large town. (You don’t have to name the town.)

I might say, it is a combination of both. I live in a smaller town at the border of a big city.

Now, who will I tag?
I love to play, but... Nope, I'm still no good at tagging.
Just play along, if you like.

PS. I just remembered that my daughter started blogging @ Amalia's Heart. Tag, you're it! Answer the 8 questions, dear.

4 appreciated note(s):

I think Gerard Butler is so cute and I love his accent.

The toilet paper question has to do with how the roll is put on the holder: so the paper comes off over top of the roll or from underneath the roll. It's one of those really "important" issues people fight about.

LOL on the toilet paper roll. What it is asking, when it's on the roll do you like the tp to hang over from the top, or hang from the underneath at the bottom. LOL I like your answer to your famous person. I never thought that it might depend upon my mood. :) Great answers to the tag my friend. Thanks for playing along :)
