{Challenge} 25 Random Things About Me

A few years ago, there was this chain letter going around on Facebook called 25 Random Things About Me but for some reason I skipped the challenge so here it is now :).
  1. I eat my cinnamon buns in a perfect circle (outside right into the yummy gooey centre).
  2. I never bite into an ice lolly or any ice cream on a stick. If it has a layer of chocolate layer, I eat it all first then I work my way to the centre.
  3. Whenever I eat multicoloured candy like Skittles, M&Ms, ball gums, gummies, I eat colours in order that way i get to enjoy each flavour e.g the red first, then the blue etc.
  4. I belong to so many networks and communities and know so many people all over the world, yet I have very few close friends.
  5. I like the smell of rain and love the taste of dirt (like that layer of mud on a tree bark, tu comprends?).
  6. When it comes to my hair, I can be like the average 10 year old boy - not usually a priority LOL. I hate thinking or doing my hair and am always trying to find long term, super easy, wash-and-go styles like dreadlocks, braids and the like.
  7. Whenever I do dishes, I do them in order (e.g. glasses then plates then forks then spoons etc...).
  8. I grew up in 4 different countries.
  9. I last had a room-mate when I was 15 years old (in boarding school).
  10. When I go shopping, I grab items from the back (rather than the ones in the front because I figure too many hands have touched them. With refrigerated foods the front row aren't properly refrigerated anyway and the store people tend to put the soon to expire stuff in the front :)
  11. My middle name was inspired by an 80's comic superhero my mum used to like.
  12. I love meeting strangers (and I prefer to call them new people :).
  13. I love making cupcakes but don't really enjoy eating them.
  14. I have crackling bones.
  15. I started my first business at 21.
  16. I hate doing dishes.
  17. I honestly believe that less than 10% of people in the world are "bad", everyone else doesn't mean to be.
  18. I have never had a girl best friend before.
  19. In a different life I would love to have studied engineering (probably computer or industrial).
  20. I'm obsessed with making lists! [In my notebook I carry everywhere or on my Blackberry when lights are out].
  21. I function better at night.
  22. I believe in Karma.
  23. I have a unique name [so i thought]......but a few years ago when I was conducting my annual Google scan, I learnt there's a GUY (yes, I said GUY) who shares the exact same first and last name as I do SMH.
  24. I love the taste of condensed milk.
  25. Most of my childhood memories are a blur
