Hey everyone, realized that aside from my “About” page, I haven’t really introduced myself properly for you guys to get to know me better, so i’m coming up with a “Q&A” blog post. These are questions that I received from you guys on Askfm. I hope I get to answer your questions as accurately and as creatively as possible. I want this to be a fun post and not all reading. Since I know that some of you probably want some visuals, i’m going to post some pictures as well. Enjoy and thanks for sending out questions!
1. What are your must-read books?
I’m probably the WORST person to ask about must-read books because i’m not a reader. I’m going to answer this by giving you my favourite book(s) so far AND must-watch movies.
So this is my book shelf here in my apartment in Sydney. As you can see, I have very little books. Amongst the six books displayed on my shelf, I would say I like both “After You” by Jojo Moyes and “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins. My favourite book so far is “The Girl on the Train,” the book thrills me so much and I love how almost every chapter is seen through a different perspective. Feel free to comment below if you have some books you’d like to suggest.
1. Pretty Woman
2. Hacksaw Ridge
3. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
4. Pearl Harbour
5. Selena (1997)
6. The Longest Ride
2. What are your favourite make-up products?
My favourite make-up products would be Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, Urban Decay Lip Liner, Bobbi Brown orange lipstick and Nars cheek blush in orgasm.
3. What is your favourite restaurant?
This is one of the most difficult questions because i’m such a foodie. I love eating so. freaking. much. Everyone who knows me well knows this (HAHA). But if I were really to pick one favourite restaurant, I guess it would be Korea Garden on Jupiter Street in Makati.
4. What do you eat in a day?
It really depends if it’s a school day or a weekend. But my usual eating routine when I have classes is maximum up to two meals a day, and yes it’s not healthy at all. On school days, I always eat in Thai Palate on Australia Avenue. It’s the closest decent restaurant from school, so that’s where I go. On Mondays and Wednesdays, I have classes from 9:30am-7:30pm, so I usually only have one meal the entire day. On Tuesdays though, my class is only until 1pm, so wherever I go after school, that’s when I’ll eat. Most of the time, I go home so I either eat in this Thai restaurant called Red Spoon here in Top Ryde Shopping Centre or I eat in Bondi Pizza. Thursdays and weekends are the days where I always go out so I either go to the city or to malls and that gives me a chance to eat more than what I eat on regular school days.
5. Who are your top 5 favourite bloggers?
1. Aimee Song
2. Margaret Zhang
3. Chriselle Lim
4. Marta Ortiz (not sure if she’s a blogger)
.. sorry didn’t make it to five.
6. Shoe collection?
This is basically my shoe collection. They’re divided into three parts and I try to arrange them by types and colours. When I’m in the mood for some heels or boots, then I get shoes from the top most collection. When I’m simply going to school or running errands, I choose from either my second or third collection, depending on my mood. If i’m in the mood for some rubber shoes, loafers or sandals then I obviously pick from my third collection. Otherwise, I pick from my second collection, which I think are the most or commonly used shoes.
These three are my current favourite shoes. I think they’re very fashionable but comfortable at the same time.
7. Bag collection?
This one is my bag collection. And no, I’m no spoiled brat. A lot of these are hand-me-downs and I’m just lucky enough to have a mother who takes such good care of her bags. The pink YSL bag, Céline bag, Hermēs Bolide tote bag and Chanel bag are all from my mother.
8. What laptop are you using and how many gb?
I’m using the MacBook Pro Retina with 249.78GB (according to my laptop’s storage information).
9. How many ex boyfriends have you had?
Two, but I’m with Gab now and he’s the one. I just know it.
10. What camera are you using to shoot your videos and pictures on your blog?
I use my phone (iPhone 6 Plus) and my Canon SX60HS.
I’m thinking of getting a Fujifilm camera (not sure which exact model), but I don’t know if it’s good. If you recommend any Fujifilm camera, leave a comment below.
11. Are you full Chinese? Can you speak in Chinese fluently?
No, I am not full Chinese. I’m 3/4 Chinese to make it easier. However, my dad is 100% Chinese and my mom is 25% Spanish, 25% Filipino and 50% Chinese.
12. What’s your life motto?
Do your best in everything and anything that you do.
13. If you have to choose one food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pasta because there’s more variety.
14. Tips on how to deal with acne.
I’m not the best person to ask for tips on how to deal with acne because I almost never get acne, but let me tell you what I do. As soon as I notice that I have a growing pimple, I straight away go to my derma (Faces & Curves) to get a pimple injection. This prevents the pimple from growing further. There are times though that the pimple can’t be prevented from growing, so what I do is leave it until it naturally goes away.
15. Favourite colour?
16. If you were not taking up a business course, what course would you like?
This is such a great question. I love it! If I were not taking up a business course, I would be taking an Interior Design course. I would love to design houses for people and stores for businesses.
17. What’s your night routine?
Because you didn’t say BEAUTY routine, i’ll just answer this generally. So at night, what I usually do is chill at home, watch TV, cuddle with my boyfriend, Gab, put face masks, apply my teeth whitening gel, play with Cooper, my Mini Lop, write, and of course, sleep.
18. What’s your favourite party game?
Flip Cup and King’s Cup
19. What’s the longest car ride you’ve ever taken?
Okay, so last year during my anniversary with Gab, we decided to spend a night in Tagaytay. The next day, the plan was to drive all the way to Tarlac (if i’m not mistaken) to meet my mom and a friend. When we arrived in Tarlac, everyone decided to go to Baguio instead since we were already up North. That was probably the longest car ride e v e r.
20. If you were famous, what would you be famous for?
An interior designer for stores.
21. Is there anything that you’re collecting?
Nothing as of the moment.
