The first rule is easy. I will ask a question. The first person who comments will answer my question, and will leave a question for the next person to answer. This next person will answer that question, and leave a question for the next next person to answer. I am sure you get it! 😉
To make things more fun, the questions have to reflect the chosen theme. For example, if the theme is HEROES, all questions should relate to heroes. Do you want to travel through time like Hiro Nakamura? Which national hero would you like to have dinner with? As much as possible, let’s not repeat the questions for added fun! You are also welcome to play more than once.
The second rule is very neighborly. After you answer and write a question, visit the person who comments right BEFORE you. If that person does not have a blog, visit any of the commenters’ blogs. When you’re at their blog, leave a comment and some nice cheer. You might make a new friend!
Let’s get to know each other better with the 18th weekend soiree. This is also a part of Shai’s Tell Me About You Project.
The theme: GETTING TO KNOW YOU

Q: How old were you when you had your first crush?
Oh my! The crush I can remember as my first was that guy who was in high school while I was in Grade 6. So that was when I was 11 years old? I can’t remember if I had any other crush before him.
Q: How do you unwind after a stressful week?

I eat Japanese. My favorites are lots of shake sashimis and ikuras. Or I go traveling with my soulmate. Either way, I feel relaxed and recharged.
Q. Where is your favorite restaurant in Metro Manila and what do you usually order there?

J. FloresApril 26, 2008 at 11:01 am (15 years ago)
I’ve finally realized that the one thing I’m good at is baking. The world can end outside my window kitchen and I wouldn’t know it if I’m baking, because I involve all my senses in it. Cooking is my home, and I’m glad I can come “home” every time I take out the sugarand flour (and eggs, and milk, and chocolate…)
My Q For U: What’s the story behind your name?

Do you like the rain? Do you like walking in the rain? do you like the feel of wet pebbles under your feet when it rains? (3 questions… I know… humor me :D)
odetteApril 28, 2008 at 2:33 pm (15 years ago)
yes jet, i do love the rain, walking in the rain, and even walking barefoot in the rain, especially if i’m on our farm here in mindanao. but i hated the rain when i was working in manila, i hated the flooded streets, i gag at the stench of the overflowing drainage, the difficulty of catching a ride home, and when i can’t sleep because i miss home so much when it rains. 😉
Q: do certain scents make you nostalgic of the past? like a feeling of dejavu? or what kind of things never fail to bring a special memory to you?
@ toni: i now know how are those custard buns called!! i featured it on my latest post. 😉

MeeyaApril 29, 2008 at 12:21 am (15 years ago)
i’m not able to vote here yet so this won’t count hehe. i’m interested in barack. the guy’s got something, however i think he’s a bit hilaw for this. we’ll see how the americans will decide. hilary reminds me of gma for some reason, and not in a good way. i do wish al gore were running again. 😛
question: i’ll just recycle toni’s question in honor of earth day. how old were you when you had your first crush? (i was 8, in case anybody’s interested).
Meeya’s last blog post..Where is
GraceyApril 29, 2008 at 5:16 am (15 years ago)
I can’t really remember when but I’m betting on 9 or 10.
Q: Who are your favorite authors and what’s your favorite book?
NicolaApril 29, 2008 at 5:34 am (15 years ago)
I can’t remember… but probably around 8 or 9, I went through phases of liking each of the boys around my age or a little older that were sons of my parents friends. And I remember lusting (is that possible when you’re so young?!) after a boy for most of the latter primary school years, when I would have been 10-11.
My question…. What is your favourite season and why? I love winter, maybe because I’m a winter baby, but everyone else seems to love summer and spends the rest of the year complaining that the weather is crap, I’m the total opposite, anyone else out there different too?

ToniMay 12, 2008 at 8:43 am (15 years ago)
