another tag!

I have been blogging since 2003 and somehow, after a point I lose interest and all my blogs have died but this time I don't want that to happen. I have promised myself that I will write, even if its just a few lines every few days and when I am totally out of ideas, I will do tags - but update I must. Tonight I'm really tired and fighting a horrible allergy so I will just do a tag that I've seen on quite a few blogs recently. Happy getting to know me! ;)

Hehe...the 'what are you wearing' question is really annoying eh? Has a bit of a creepy vibe to it --- like some weirdo online asking what you are wearing with just one thing in mind! :P

Testing laboratories in India (should hear me swearing over it, really)

The furs of 100 Dalmatian puppies...actually, an inside-out grey t-shirt and a black velvet jacket.



What’s the last thing you bought?
Bourbon biscuits

What are you listening to right now?
Elastique- Charlotte Gainsbourg

What do you think about the person who tagged you?
Technically, I wasn't tagged...

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Somewhere in the Arctic Circle or Tokyo.

What are your must-have pieces for summer?
Same as my must-haves in any other season...skirts and men's shirts.

A giant panda sanctuary (probably somewhere in Mainland China then?)

Russian and Khmer if I can manage it.

What’s your favourite quote?
"I am not going to live my life in the shadow of the hairy bird!"
- quote from The Hairy Bird


Who do you want to meet right now?
I wouldn't say no to a dragon or two, if they could talk.

What is your favourite colour?
Green
