25 Random Things About Me

This post is inspired by Dainty Mom.
I'm a newbie blogger and I'm always wondering what to blog about next. There's very little on my "About" widget that can possibly pique your interest to read my blog. I am hoping one of the 25 random things here will! I'd like to think that this is what I've become - after all these years.

1. Name someone with the same birthday as you. Nina Garcia (coolness - i had to look this up!). 
2. What’s on your playlist right now? ABC, Music and Me.
3. Where did you meet your husband? In Taiwan, in 1992. That was officially the first meeting.
4. How many children do you have? Two.
5. Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people? Yes, in 2nd grade for a solo singing contest - where I totally failed. But I met a very good friend (Gressy!)
6. Was it love at first sight when you saw your husband? NO. Not even love at second sight ;)
7. What’s your favorite food? I cannot decide! Grilled liempo?
8. What do you order at Starbucks? Tall Caramel Macchiato (hot) or Tall Coffee Frap (cold)
9. If you could buy one thing for the house right now, money aside, what would it be? A lot of shelving for storage. Especially the IKEA ones for the kids' room!
10. As a child, what did you want to grow up to be? A doctor.
11. Say something totally random about yourself. A horse bit me when I was about 9 years old.
12. Do you watch X-Factor? No.
13. Did you have braces? No.
14. Favorite Social Network? Twitter (Follow me: @cuckoo_sing)
15. Where’d your husband propose to you? At Subic, on a yacht, just before sunset. Yes, it was a yacht. Maybe someday I'll tell you the story. 
16. Why is your blog called The Corporate Housewife Mom? Somehow, I ended up with those 3 roles, without aiming for them. 
17. Do you speak any other languages? Chinese (Fookien, some Mandarin) and Filipino.
18. What’s your favorite pastime? I love reading and trying out new food.
19. What magazines do you read? Nowadays, it's Yummy and Good Housekeeping. Online, I like Parenting and Real Simple.
20. Name one of your useless skills. I can recite the alphabet backwards. I remember people's shoes.
21. Do you drive? Yup.
22. What are your top five TV shows at home this fall ’11 season? Unfortunately, none. I don't watch TV. Maybe How I Met Your Mother? Is that still on?!
23. Can you dance? I think so. You might not think so though.
24. What’s your favorite place in the world? Our room. And also the shores of Boracay.
25. If you could have a super power, what would it be? To go back and forward in time.
Now, I’m gonna ask you to do two things in the comments: 1) Answer one of my 25 questions with an answer about you, and 2) ask me another random question, which I’ll answer. I hope to meet you!


  1. it is great to know more about you :)

    i also have 2 kids :)

    what is your most unforgettable funny moment? :)

  2. Hi Chris! Thanks for posting. My most unforgettable funny moment - at my wedding mass, the priest kept calling me "KEYNDI"! My name is pronounced like the normal "Candy" - and this really irritated me! At one point - he actually said it right - and I was very hopeful it will be ok for the rest of the mass... but no - it was Keyndi all the way. After 5 years, it's actually funny :P

  3. i made my post :)
