I’m not usually the type to reply to chain letters and such, but I’ll make an exception for the sake of the evergrowing blogosphere. I just got tagged by Ed Lau in a bloggy kind of way. The game is a little different than in the school yard, however, as I must disclose five things you may not know about me (because Ed did it before me, and John before him). So, uh, here they are:
1. Despite the “street racer” image that my car (a lightly modified Acura Integra) may have with some people, I have a squeaky clean driving record. If you head on over to the DMV (or I guess “Driver Services Centre” as ICBC calls it) and ask for my driver’s abstract, you will find that I have never had my license suspended… heck, there’s not even a speeding ticket on there. That’s right. No tickets. The only “mistake” on the record is a single at-fault accident. And that was a super minor fender bender
2. I’m known to be a gamer, but some people may be surprised to hear that I am almost obsessively Nintendo loyal. Through the years, I have gone through the following systems: NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Game Boy (original with puke green screen), GBA SP, and DS Lite. Maybe I should have bought the Virtual Boy to collect the set. The only non-Nintendo machine I’ve ever owned is my Sony PSP, and I rarely play that anyways.
3. I’ve been to Las Vegas at least five times (I lost count), but only one of those times was I actually of age. Family friendly entertainment, right?
4. This probably isn’t all that much of a secret, but I agree with my dad’s mantra that there is no better way to spend money than to please your stomach. Good food will always make you happy, and I have no qualms about going out to somewhere nice to eat. Gotham, Morton’s, C… I really should try West and Lumiere.
5. Late bloomer = me. High school was a little tough because I was the shortest guy among all my friends all the way up until grade 11. And then, as if overnight, I shot up quite a few inches during the summer before grade 12. Today, I’m probably the tallest guy among my (Asian) friends.
