Do I Have To?

All Tagged Out

That's it! This is the last and final one for...for awhile. I'm done with it and at this point, I don't wanna do anymore. Not posting any more of 'em, nope. Nada. Zilch. Zeeeero. If any of you tag me after this, I will...hmmm...ermmm...kinda hard to threaten when the moon seems closer to me than any of you! I was going to say tickle you to death but that would require a plane trip and that's not going to happen (unless you wanna fund my ticket back to Malaysia. That's why I'm saving my pennies, by the way).

Anyway, getting down to business. Time to do what '
D B' tagged me with. So here we go:

15 Things I'd Like To Do Before I Die:

1) Have children, see them grow up and be there to teach them the important things in life - like lose the game/a friend/money but don't lose the lesson...Fall and fall again, just pick yourself up every time...Make friends, they make the world a whole lot less lonely...so many lessons, so little time.
2) Become financially independent and buy a home in Malaysia so that my parents can watch their grandchildren grow up (something I never had the pleasure of...grandparents passed away when I was young).

3) Travel to Europe (I've always wanted to go to France...it just seems like such a romantic place to be)...but I'm not that fussed as to where. Anywhere in Europe is good.

4) Write a book which helps someone...somehow. Anyone know anybody who's willing to talk about their experience with any form of substance abuse?

5) Find a way to help increase world literacy...I'm happy to start with Malaysian literacy. Kids need to be able to read, regardless of what their parents want (or don't in this case).
6) Be fluent in Mandarin (oh man, I still remember who turned me off Mandarin classes...this huge, balding Chinese teacher who would put a pig to shame. Now that I think about it, I shouldn't compare him to a pig - it doesn't do the pig any justice).
7) Play in an orchestra (don't really mind which instrument...I really should start my flute lessons and I hear it's easy to pick up the cello but wouldn't it be cool to be someone from percussion section? Like a harpist...).
8) Be able to display a piece of my art - be it through photography or some other way. I guess it doesn't have to be an exhibition. It just has to be good enough to be displayed.

9) Buy my dad a really cool 4WD. Like a Pajero. Or Jeep. Then he can go bush-bashing on the way to his fishing destination.

10) Grow old with hubby and spend our 50th anniversary on some secluded island.

11) Take a cruise to the Artic or the Carribbean. I know, pretty extreme in temperatures but I wanna see polar bears...or have some Carribbean food and soak in the culture.

12) Read all the books in our library and then some. I keep adding to our collection so this is a never ending dream.

13) Find a career - not just a job. Something I look forward to everyday which still pays the bills and the mortgage and the shopping and all my needs and wants.
14) Open a bookstore + kopitiam + a kid area similar to what Ikea has. Doesn't have to be a big place but it definitely has to be comfy. Some place where regulars can hang out.

15) Write (not email but conventional snail mail) to each person who has changed my life and thank them simply for being there.


There. I've done it. Can't be bothered about tagging anyone else. I'd like to read your list but if you don't want to do it...*shrug* I'm not gonna be the one to convince you to! Now, I'm going to sleep. I've got a case of the sniffles and need my sleep. Good nite!

Wow.. SOMEONE woke up the wrong side of bed today.

1) That's real nice. Everyone has these visions sometime in their life. You'll have yours fersure.

2) You're earning a currency higher than the Ringgit. And Sungei Long has pretty decent houses that aren't too exp. Come come be my neighbour! XD

3) That's real nice too.

4) Why specifically drug abuse? Why not write a book called "The Zen of Moo" and talk about how best to be the best cow you can ever be? *Looks seriously at you*

5) Uh...

6) Uh... x 2

7) With your piano skill, I'm sure you can with a little practise.

8) Go to www.lensamalaysia.com/forum and post up your cam pics. Those guys are pros! Any comments will only just improve your skill.

9) Yeah. Destroy the environment. Why don't you :P 4-wheel fuel guzzler AND flattening terrain is real smart environment friendly :P

10 to 14) *nods*

15) You could do that today couldn't you? A blog post dedicated to the ones that made you moo. XD

I've done the tag, because I wanted to blog, but was experiencing mental block. Yeah, it does sound funny coming from a person who has perpetual mental diarhea.

Hehes.

izso: There's only 1 side of the bed to wake up!!! & don't tell me you like tags??? HMM???
2) Higher currency but mortgage in same currency. How-leh?
4) I said 'substance abuse'. But I like 'The Zen of Moo'...sounds like a pretty good idea. Let me think about it. Thanks!
7) Pianist aren't that great in demand. & what piano skill?
8) Thanks! There's so much cool stuff there!
9) 4WDs on diesel are more fuel efficient. & plants don't die if they get flattened. Try stomping your lalang and see how far you get with that.
15) I said 'write'. And it's a list of stuff I want to do before I die so I know it's achievable.

ninjabee: You've got BIGGER things to think about ;)

fairygodmother: Which reminds me, I still don't have your new address. & *hugs* you're on my list for 'the person who took me to her home and made my dad panic'. Classic! =)

pugly: Hahahah...I must go looking for one of those cheques to scan and print...& just send one to you for the heck of it. Or send a real check...with $1.00. I think it costs more to cash the cheque in ;p

maggie: Cool...will have a squizz...

izchan said...

izchan: Thanks. =)
