30 Things About Me


Since I wasn’t able to join last week’s meme, I made sure that this week I’ll be joining the fun. 

This week’s topic 30 Things About Me is hosted by Miss Sanna of Woman Scribbles.  

Feel free to read these 30 not so interesting things about myself. 

1. I was named January because I was born in first month of the year.

2. Youngest in the family. I have two half siblings from my mother and two half siblings from my  father and an older brother from both, so that makes us a total of six.

3. A talkative and funny girl (I guessed) when with my closest friends, but shy and silent with others.

4. My husband was my first and last boyfriend. We’ve been in a relationship for seven years before we decided to settle down in 2008. 

5. My son is my biggest treasure. I had another treasure supposedly due next month but had lost her last month.

6. An electrical engineer by profession, working in one of the biggest corporation in the Philippines and is my primary source of income.

7. A blogger wannabe, even though
8. I’m poor in English, both written and oral.

9. A self proclaimed handmade jewelry artisan, you can check my crafts here.

10. I love nail polishes and nail arts.

11. I don’t wear make-up. Pressed powder and lip gloss will do.

12. I love bags and shoes (only those an average wage earner can afford)

13. A clutch driver (my left foot always on top of the clutch pedal) but I’m
 trying my best to avoid being one.

14. I love my motorcycle, but have given up driving it dahil perwisyo pag tag-ulan.

15. I love photography and I want to learn more about it but I think my DSLR will be retiring soon and I desperately need another.

16. A coffee drinker.

17. A Korean drama addict.

18. I love to sing but singing is not for me because I’m always out of tune.

19. I want to dance but my body is too stiff.

20. A born athlete because I can easily learn sports except swimming, because
21. I do not know how to swim.

22. A Badminton enthusiast and in love with tournaments. Before getting married and during my two year stay in Metro Manila (2006-2008), I have joined almost all tournaments that I can qualify. That’s the reason why I have survived the life in the Metro.  

23. I love to play with Photoshop. I even did the layout of our wedding photo story book. 

24. Impulsive buyer. Imagine I just bought a P13,000 worth of educational materials from Grolier. Yikes! Napa-isip ako tuloy kung bakit ko binili ang mga yun, pero ok na lang din para sa anak ko naman.
25. I used to love books, but not anymore because I don’t have time to read.

26. Ukay-ukay Queen. Most of my son’s clothes are branded (from US), got them all from ukay-ukay. hehe

27. I have at least 20 Starbucks Mugs in my collection and hoping to add more.

28. Most comfortable with jeans, tees and flip flops.

29. Love chocolates, cakes, desserts but trying my best to avoid them because

30. I’m extremely obese and I desperately need to lose weight.
