I am guilty as charged for only having entries for Friday 5 these two weeks, but jobs have been really demanding nowadays. Especially after I accepted a part-time job of writing articles a while ago. I couldn't even play my Persona 3 properly! That being said, here is a late version of my Friday 5. This week's topic is quite fun!

1. Favorite flavor milkshake: If you ask me few years ago, I would've said chocolate without any pause to think. But nowadays I prefer vanilla milkshake; even better when it is not too sweet. Since I'm trying to get into a healthy lifestyle (lol), I need to reduce my sugar and vanilla seems to be the best not-so-sweet taste between the three main contenders. Honorable mention to matcha (green tea) which is better as latte or frappucino instead of milkshake.
2. Favorite soda pop: It's a tie between the good ol' classic Sprite and orange-flavored Fanta. I tend to pick Sprite more often though; I buy Fanta only if I'm craving for the orange flavor more so than the soda itself. In the process of getting healthier, it's been a while since I had a date with them. :(
3. Favorite alcoholic drink: I don't drink any alcoholic drinks. But last time I tried Barley and its ice cream version. Not bad, not bad!
4. Favorite juice: O-ren-ji. Orange is practically the only fruit whose other versions I also love. Whether it's juice, cake, cookies, candy, and so on. I'm obsessed with orange flavor.
5. Favorite brand of bottled water: Tough choice. I don't drink much of bottled water because I think it's pointless. But if you consider the YouC 1000 Orange Water as bottled water, then yes I drink that once in a while as supplement.

In an attempt of reviving this blog, let us also bring back one of my favorite things to do when I used to write a lot (at least when I still had my WordPress blog): Friday 5! For those who do not know this 'game', every Friday I am supposed to answer 5 random questions from [community profile] thefridayfive. Super late answer for last week's questions due to various things happening in life, but better late than never, right?

1. Describe your favorite outfit. - The most favorite and comfortable combination for me is casual T-shirt with short pants. For semi-formal occasions, though, I like wearing one-piece dresses which are simple but still elegant. Not really a fan of long dresses; not that I ever used one either as far as I remember.
2. Describe your personal style. - I am mostly a casual, chic, tomboy person. So I prefer clothing or accessories which do not bring problem in me moving around. In that sense, heels and wedges can be a problem, but since I can handle them just fine so far I don't really categorize them in a "to-avoid" category.
3. Approximately how much do you spend on fashion/personal care annually? - Very funny question! The only things I can think of that fall under the category of 'fashion/personal care' are when I go to cut my hair, buy clothes, or buy shoes. Annually that may only amount to 72-96 hours total... I really don't go around that much, lol. Unless they are broken or I need to find specific thing.
4. Do you dress for yourself or for everyone else? - After choosing the design for my graduation clothes, I'd say it's for myself. I got critics from bf and his mother that it looked rather strange on me, but I enjoyed the pattern and cut because it was something different from what I (and I bet friends) normally wear. It is important to wear something others like, but at the end of the day I wear what is comfortable and compatible with my mood.
5. Give us your best fashion/personal care advice. - Eat a lot, drink a lot, and work out. That's what I'm trying to do right now, lol.

I forget. I already did. Yet I was reminded somehow just suddenly. Your brain is indeed the strangest thing in this world.

Let's go!

P.S.: As usual, you can find these questions originally at [community profile] thefridayfive.

1. If you were given one million dollars, on the condition that you had to give half of it away, how would you go about giving away half a million dollars?

I don't mind. At all. In my country dollars mean much, and to be able to get even half a million of it would be very helpful. I would just positively think that someone else might need that half a million, LOL~ Then I will use what I have to go have fun, visit Europe, go see music concerts, and pay for my university fees. How beautiful!

2. Do you write letters or send cards to anyone via the postal system regularly, only for special occasions such as birthdays, or not at all?

Very rarely. When I was in the mood to, I sent several postcards to my best online friends. I have only once sent a gift to a friend aboard. Never really liked doing one and it is kind of expensive as well so I won't bring trouble to my parents for paying it for me, ehe~

3. What is the most treasured memento you have kept?

I wonder... I still keep the pen I received from a real-life meeting with my first best online friend. And a doll from someone important... I'll leave it there. :P

4. If one of your friends phones you at 4am because they are depressed and upset, but you have an important job interview in the morning. What do you do?

My answer? (1) None of my friends would ever call me in such hour. I make sure I make friends with those who wouldn't do that to me. (2) If one of them ever called me at 4 AM in the morning despite my prevention actions, poor this person as I would not respond at all. How dare you interfering with my sweet dream and sleep!

5. What is the phrase or quote that sums up who you are as a person?

"Work hard, play hard." ... I guess. I don't think I work that hard.... Oh, well. :D


There we go! This time it is much fun, thanks for the questions, Friday Five! Look forward to next week's questions. :D

I did this on my previous WordPress blog so I thought it would be fun to do it again. I'll try to do it regularly each week, so remind me when I don't! :P

You can find these questions at [community profile] thefridayfive.

1. Are you a loser?

I guess I am, in a way or another? LOL~

2. What "geeky" activities do you take part in (games, trivial pursuits, etc)?

I wonder if participating in online communities can be considered one. I spend so much of my time everyday online in various sites after all.

3. Are you out of the closet about your geekiness?

Nope, don't think so. XD

4. Does your significant other join in on these activities? (Or, if single, would a potential SO have to?)

Blah, no. Though it may be interesting if he could join me in my geek activities once in a while, no need to be that much. I'd love to do anything different with him too. <3

5. Geekiest public moment?

I can't remember... :s


Sorry, not so fun with this week's questions. See you on the next one! :D
