Ok, I got tagged by Yuvee :) so here goes.

Ten Years Ago
I was 19 and a year in Malaysia. My parents move me to Malaysia to be with them. I attend college there. I had a hard time adjusting and struggling with the stark contrast between Singapore and Malaysia. I found great friends who helped me through some dark times and luckily enough, a level head most times though I was a rebel. Of course, I also had great time and fun with friends. I was also dying to head out to Australia for my University studies.

Five Years Ago
I was 24, back to Malaysia again after graduation. Fought with mom about my bringing furkid back with me. I got myself a dog in Australia since mom didn't let me have pets before. Landed my very first job. Lots of new experiences. But some things never change, like how things here still drive me batty.

One Year Ago
Partially acclimatized to Malaysia, jaded about working here and looking forward to live elsewhere. Mom loves furkid as much as I do now. Also some major changes in my life, dumped my ‘baggages’, kickstarted my visa application and started to do things I enjoy (like knitting). Another transition chapter in my life. :)

Five Snacks
-Smith’s Potato Chips – Chicken Flavor
-Synder’s Sour Dough– Sour Chives and Onions
-Coffee/Chocolate Cakes – Tiramisu and dark chocolate comes to mind.
-Terry’s Orange Flavored Dark Chocolates

Five Songs I Know All The Words To
-Lucie Silvas – What You Are Made Of
-Alanis Morisette - Ironic
-Josh Groban - To Where You Are

I'm tagging SiowChin, Joy, Agnes, Lee Anne and Dani. No obligations of course..:)

Michelle asked what stuffing I used for my pincushion. I got one roll of absorbent cotton from the supermarket. In the section where they have cotton wool/buds and stuff. It works well for me.

Alternatively a sponge or polyester fillings you can get from departmental stores (pillows and cushions section) or crafts stores is good too. As long as it hold ur needles well.:) Hope it helps.

Hiya, Bloglines didn't pick up this post until today, so I didn't know I was tagged ... again! LOL! I had this on my blog already.
I love Tiramisu too ... only that this dessert is just too evil ... so much mascapone cheese!
