I’m back and it’s already been a week since I last posted (I hope this is a sign I’m going to be more active blogging in the new year!).
I’m actually going to attempt the ’13 Personal Questions Tag’ which apparently made rounds in the Youtube community and blogging community.
So here goes nothing…
- What do you order at Starbucks?
Was the person who created this first question moi ? Because anyone who knows me knows I can’t live without Starbucks. I’m positive I end up spending a good 20 dirhams on a Caramel Frappucino because they’re so delicious and amazing.
Also the Starbucks at Financial Centre knows me by name and my order by heart because I’m a frequent visitor.
2. What’s the one thing in your closet you can’t live without?
I think the one thing in my closet I can’t live without are my jeans; I normally show up everywhere in different set of pants. But my jeans are staples in my closet and I can’t go out without wearing any of them. A close second would be my numerous accessories I pair my outfits with.
3. What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
That I love K-pop music!
Most people don’t expect me to be into Korean pop music because I don’t look like a stereotypical fan? Also the fact that I prefer K-pop girl groups over boy groups. That always throws people off since they expect girls to normally be into boy bands.
4. What’s the one thing you want to do before you die?
This is difficult because I have a really long bucket list. But my number one thing to do is to make a film – I’ve been writing down ideas for a script and I keep thinking of scenes but I’m yet to figure out if this will fit into a novel or a script.
5. What’s the one food you can’t live without?
Butter Chicken! I’m an NRI (non-resident Indian) and when my Mum makes her butter chicken – it’s so good it could stop wars. Seriously!
6. What’s one quote you live your life by?
I don’t really have one particular quote that I live my life by, but I always live by this quote – “Be the change you want the world to be.” I personally believe that if you want change and if you want to fight for it; you need to make it in your life.
If it means not listening to a music artist because he’s an abusive POS then don’t listen to it, if you don’t like another artist because of the values she follows – own up to it.
Take a stand and make a change.
7. What do you like and dislike about the YouTube community?
I love that you can post content freely and you reach so many people in different parts of the world by making music, memes, videos and content accessible to so different people!
There are parts of the community that I don’t like and I’m just going to let Oprah address it for me:
8. What’s your number 1 song on your iPod/iTunes?
At the moment it’s a tie between EXO’s ‘Sing For You’, Daya’s ‘Hide Away’ and Shawn Mendes’ ‘Stitches’. I always end up humming these three songs.
9. What kind of style would you describe yourself as having?
My personal style is a mix of chic, semi-formal, casual comfort! I like dressing up and playing around with accessories; so I’m pretty experimental but safe at the same time.
10. Two hobbies?
My current hobbies are watching TV series and movies and listening to new genres of music. As a former film student and movie buff, I’m game for any kind of movie and genre (within reason). Music-wise, I have no problem listening to different genres of music in different languages.
I’ll probably upload my Greatest Hits playlist on here soon-ish, so you can see what kind of music I’m open to listening to!
12. Two pet peeves?
Two pet peeves that really bother me is when people end up passing sexist comments about women and men and when people are really homophobic.
There’s no faster way to kill chances of me liking you than passing bigoted comments about someone’s gender or sexuality.
I’m not here for that.
13. Your guilty pleasure?
Erm, this might come off as a surprise but I’m a huge fan of trashy hip-hop music from the noughties. When I’m at work and I need to finish a presentation really fast; I end up playing something like this.
Well, so that’s my personal 13 tags about me! Let me know if you’re surprised by any of this or if you like this post.
