Tag: 15 weird facts tag!

Bring out that inner weirdo people! Today I bring to my blog yet another fun tag! I've been browsing other people's blogs just looking for tags and this one seemed like an easy enough to answer and light hearted one! My so called 'weird' answers actually aren't very weird or strange actually so please don't be too dissappointed! You're definitely not going to find out that I have a second vagina, like eating candle wax or that I can balance bananas on my nose!

I really hope everyone enjoys my answers to this tag and I've listed all the questions at the end so do feel free to copy and paste and do this tag too!

Continue below for my answers!
I was trying to find a more fun or interesting first photo but searching 'weirdo' or 'weird people' in google images is really....not productive. (Link to source here)
1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?

My chinese name is Jia-lin. No, it is not the 'chinese version' of my english name. Yes, there is a motherfucking '-' in my birth certificate and passport, don't tell me the fields in your form are filled up incorrectly because no symbols are allowed!

'Jia' or pronounced like 'ch-yeah' Actually the best way to hear this is to youtube, search "jia jia and kai kai panda", open the third video hit and at 0:38 in the video you will here 'Jia Jia' pronounced the way it should be for my name. OR...try looking for an advert for the canned drink called "Jia Jia" tea, that might be easier!!

My old passport! SEE. THERE IS A MATHA FOKIN hypen...the '-' in my name. Don't worry my friends in the United States, in Singapore information like our passport number and ID numbers are public information and your identity won't be stolen easily or anything like that.

2. What's a weird habit of yours?

According to my boyfriend (and we had to omit quite a few things…GIGGLE) I have a tendency to smell things. I love smelling my belly button after cleaning it with an ear bud, love the smell of little crusty bits and slight discharge from my pierced ears despite them not being fresh and I strangely also love the smell of my boyfriends very fuzzy pits. Don't lie to yourselves...I know there are plenty of you who love smelling body parts too.

Hahahaha. I can't remember the last time I actually held my nose like this! (Link to source here)

3. Do you have any weird phobias?

I hate the feeling of wrinkly fingers and feet. I will hit anyone, I MEAN ANYONE who touches me with their wrinkly feet. I find the texture just so freaking nasty and gross.

If your feet look anything like these...DO NOT COME CLOSE TO ME. (Link to source here)

4. What's a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you're alone?

None to be honest, I'm not up to date with music but I love blasting good old green day songs now and again as well as some remixes from albums like "Top Hits of 2006" which include things like Scatman, Bad Day, Crazy Frog, Me & U and Promicious!

Oh yeah...all those compilation CDs that were remixed and released and on sale for 50% off!

5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?

This is hard. I have several major pet peeves. One is of women who claim to be 'empowering' by not shaving, wearing make up and who make it a point to bash other women in order to make us 'realize' that we're doing things the way we are simply because of the misogynistic male run societies we live in. I get their intentions but how they go about their 'agenda' can be so inefficient and hypocritical.

This cartoon is of the biggest idiot bitch cunt I probably know. She got internet famous after arguing with news reporters asking plain and straight forward questions. (See the video here, I dare you to watch the whole thing without wanting to shoot her for being such a flaming retard) (Link to source here)

6. What's one of your nervous habits?

I'm being completely honest but after racking my brains and my boyfriends I don't have a nervous habit that I know of. I bite my nails now and again for fun, I twirl my hair to get out tangles and fidget when I'm waiting in lines but nothing on a regular basis that is due to my nerves or negative feelings.

I've never ever caught myself biting my nails or lips when I get nervous...however it's much worse. I've had serious cold sweats and then I get nauseated and have thrown up on occasions or came close when I was younger. (Link to source here)

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?

I tend to sleep on the right side from the perspective of already lying down in the bed. More importantly if I'm in a bed by myself I like my beds small and cozy. I don't enjoy having so much free space.

From my youngest memories, I always fall asleep on my side and usually with a pillow over the side of my face! (Link to source here)

8. What was your first stuffed animal and it's name?

Oh boy, it was a plain looking pale bear that actually looks a bit creepy now that I'm older. It disappeared a long time ago but I will find a photo and insert it. After that first toy, I had a blue and pink bear called 'BB' bear which I had until a few years ago and she decided to leave me without notice! Had her since I was 4 but I guess maybe it was a sign to get new toys!

One of very few photos I have of BB bear. When she was brand new, she was bright blue and baby pink. The white cheeks on her face so fluffy but her later years of 'life' her colors were dull and her fur flat. I still kept her like a queen on a toy chair on my book shelf!

 9. What's the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?

What starbucks? I almost never visit starbucks, let alone any regular coffee joint. I like coffee but find them too expensive and also would rather be addicted to food than a sugar loaded chocolate infused coffee drink (No, I do not wish for a mocha right now).
I don't actually drink coffee at Dunkin' Donuts' either!!! HAH! But no, I would avoid starbucks, too expensive, I rather spend my money on food and make up! (Link to source here)

10. What's the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?

Eh…hehe. Not exactly preach but 'highly recommend' but don't get around to doing it everyday like I'd 'recommend'. Moisturizing! I try my best to do it at nights before sleeping but 3/7 nights I will easily forget or skip! (don't throw your shoes at me please!!)
If I actually followed some asian skincare routines I'd have to be layering 6-10 products on at night! So I'm pretty glad when I manage to tone, moisturize and add a treatment or serum!

11. Which way do you face in the shower?

It's been the same since I was a kid. I face the shower wall when I'm applying/rinsing products to my hair/face/body with the exception of when I rinse my wash. I face away like 'an adult' like I like to tell my boyfriend and avoid any soap from getting into my face. 

Does anyone actually really rinse the soap out of their hair while facing the wall? I mean, shouldn't we be adults and avoid the soapy water getting into the eyes? (Link to source here)

12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?

HEEEEEE…. No, actually I have no such 'weird' body type 'skills' but I will say I am very flexible although not enough to do the splits!

I've always been flexible since I was young and it's always fun to bend and stretch! YES YES YES, of course my partner appreciates too *hint hint* but that's private! (Link to source here)

13. What's your favorite comfort food or foods that's 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?

NO. I CANNOT ANSWER THIS! I have waaaaaaaay too many favorite comfort foods that I eat all the time despite knowing how they really shouldn't pass my lips more than once or twice a week! I have a passion for plate loads of pasta, munching on excessive amounts of bread at all hours of the day, deep fried ANYTHING, local dishes that have enough fats to clog up a healthy heart within months and an appetite that doesn't stop at 'enough'.

Here is just a TINY fraction of our delicious local food! From the top left: Oyster omelet, rojak, sambal bbq sting ray, hokkien prawn noodles, satay, fried raddish cake, ice kachang, char kway teow and curry puff! (Link to source here)

14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?

As of recent months, I've been saying, "OH DEAR" quite a bit! Whenever I learn about something I surprising/negative or if I'm feeling something such as *need to use bathroom* I go, "OH DEAR. Somebody needs to go poop!" TMI? Sorry. Not sorry.

Isn't this photo funny? If only you guys could hear the tone of my voice when I say'd be chuckling too! (Link to source here)

15. Time to sleep what are you ACTUALLY wearing?

Baggy t-shirts, flannel baggy patterned pj bottoms or occasionally some silky girly shorts! I really am in need of going shopping for matching cute sets of PJs, I really want a print with cartoon food fast food, cats and fruits.

My pajamas are quite cute but simple...I'm YEARNING for pjs like these! I want food cartoons! (Link to source here)
That's the end of the questions! Here's a photo of one of my 'children' Doodoo wearing his hand made rainbow shorts with usable pockets during my Bali holiday back in April! All my now three kids all have individual personalities and doodoo is the most outgoing bold one of them all! Call me a weirdo...this is ma thang!

  1. Thanks so much for the tag Sharlynn! Haha CHYEAH LIN. LOVE IT. But omggg I feel your pain about the passport/BC name. My name on the legal documents has my chinese name FIRST, but because it's two words "may yen" people think my middle name is yen and my first name is May??? Both wrong, my name is Sheri -___-
    OMG I sniff my earrings too?? There's this rusty kinda scent that's sorta nice hahaha. And I don't drink coffee either and Starbucks is sooo pricey o_o Those pjgs are the cutest! Reminds me of when we were kids and would wear matching top and bottoms.

    (I was searching for your blog and kept typing in "the blackOmentos beauty box" into google and was freaking out because I couldn't find it lmao)

  2. Haha that was fun to read! Don't we all have our own weird
    habits that makes us unique c:
    When I saw you post your old passport (cute picture!) I was
    a bit worried about other people might abuse it..
    And I do like Starbucks but I don't go there a lot since it's
    kind of overpriced and overrated as well...

  3. I TOO, do not have a favorite comfort food. Anyone would be insane to just pick one! Who dare even casts a question as such!? That's abominable! LOL! With jokes aside, I love all food!!!! You have a GREAT point.

    Also, your passport photo looks like mine! You're more gutsy than I am because I wouldn't dare even publishing my embarrassing photo. I think in one of my passports, I was sweating so badly because it was SUPER hot on that day.


  4. I need to do this tag :D
    I think I have done it some time in the past but it was a long time ago :D
    Really loved reading this post sweetie :)

  5. Woohoo!, thanks so much for tagging me, I LOVE tags! You are so funny, the smelling bit was so gross but so funny! I can't say I have that particular quirk. And I am totally throwing my shoes at you from here in Perth- how can you not moisturize!! I have dry skin so I simply cannot comprehend! I love your old photos too, you were and still are, adorable ^^

  6. It's certainly nice getting to know more about you, Sharlynn. If I've to pick my favorite comfort food, it'll be almost impossible too :D

  7. I think you've tagged me in other things, but my laptop keeps crashing and losing my tags D: I'm going to look back through your other posts to make sure though!!

    AND BY THE WAY. YOUR KID PICTURES AND STUFF ARE SUPER CUTE. Apparently, my parents said I cried too much when they would hold up cameras and so I don't have that many pictures. Of the ones I do have.... I'm crying in most of them hahahahaha

    I super laughed at the food questions. Your food posts always make my mouth water. I don't know if I regret your Instagram considering all of the delicious looking food you always post :(

  8. I hate you for introducing me to misogyny lady :[ She is extremely annoying and shrill! Some of the men were actually trying to be reasonable with her, but she didn't want to listen to any of them. No wonder nobody wants to listen to her.

  9. Hi Sharlynn,

    You are a funny gal... Love reading all the nitty-gritty things about you :)

    Hope that you don't mind that I mention this... I think you should cover your passport no., birth date and essential info and etc just in case of identity thief!!! Sorry that I feel kind of concerned for you... Hope that you don't mind :p


  10. AW, I love the pictures of you when you were little! So cute!

  11. What a fun tag, I love reading your responses, feel like I know you a bit better now

    (Serious note though: if you really did have a second vagina I'd be concerned for you and would be wondering if you've consulted a doctor yet L O L jks) I have a tendency to smell things too. Bellybuttons too. It smells gross but at the same time very...interesting? Same with...the stuff on the thread after you floss your teeth ._.''''' (THE SHAME!!)

    PROMISCIOUS WAS MY ANTHEM BACK IN THE DAY. (Not my literal anthem though, because I ain't exactly sexually active, but y'know) I loved that song so much that I actually bought the CD! Plus, Nelly Furtado is Canadian, so I feel good about supporting that! ;)

    Ugh, that food photoset though *-* Also thinking of actually buying pajama sets too, as my pjs are basically men's basic t-shirts (thanks, H&M) and a pair of shorts :|

  13. Hahah! This is such a funny tag, in a good way of course and I love the mini Sharlynn! You look so adorable ~ and your passport photo is even cuter! Thanks for tagging me again! Totally not ignoring you from the last Blush tag, I should make more time to write heheh x

  14. Hello JIA-LIN! I LURVE reading posts like this! Just my type of post. Thanx for the tag. This looks fun to do but I don't think I have answers for many unless I rak my brains.

    Hehehe... My name has a "ling" inside with a "g". And of course I know how to pronounce Jialin w/o the need for any video coz duh... Chinese Singaporean. How is it that your passport look like that and you could pass through customs??? ANyway, I'm sure you've already changed it judging from the expiry date.

    Since I may do this tag, I'll avoid saying too much for now. I'm so outta touch with blogs and I'm taking a long time to catch up!
