Tag, I'm it!


tagged, tagging gun - get it? (courtesy of

I got tagged by the very gorgeous and sweet fellow left-coaster Nina.

So here goes:

Ten Things I Love:
(in no particular order)
1. My family - I may be cheating here but technically it is ONE group of people!
2. My customized pink sapphire and diamond wedding band - the plan was just to get a design that was available at the shops, but KL relented for this special occasion ;)
3. My bunnies
4. Snuggling in bed after a nice refreshing shower with my ipod and a fashion magazine
5. My orange coupe because it gets me to the places that I want to go to.
6. My Chanel reissue from 2005 because it's a gift from KL.
7. The sea
8. Road trips
9. Dark chocolate
10. Japanese food

Ten Things I Loathe:
(in no particular order either)
1. Airport security especially LAX's!
2. Incompetent colleagues
3. People who think they are right because they talk loudly
4. Waiting. What am I supposed to do when I wait?
5. All 3 X-men movies - I read X-men comics voraciously at one point in my life and in my opinion the casting for all 3 movies were mostly laughable, the comic to movie adaption was badly done and it was really a case of trying to pack too much into a 2 hour movie.
6. People who cut my queue
7. Bad Chinese food - nothing pisses me off faster than wasting my calories on bad Chinese food!
8. Airplane toilets after the plane has been in the air for more than 6 hours. (I think this is pretty self-explanatory.)
9. Paperwork
10. Please don't call me Becky. Just don't. Reb's okay though.

5 random facts about me:
1. I am a certified scuba-diver, but the last time that I was in an open-water dive was when I was in college. I am still trying to find a driving buddy for myself in California.
2. My name's Rebecca but I was almost named Elizabeth. My elder sister's Beatrix, so my dad just wanted to run with the Queens theme and name me after the Queen of England, which would be weird to me now because I cannot imagine myself responding to Elizabeth, or Beth or Lisa.
3. I baby-talk to all animals. Cats, dogs, bunnies, fish... it's a reflex and I'm just aware of it recently.
4. I secretly think I am more of a shoe girl than a bag girl. And I feel guilty to my bags for thinking so.
5. I love to play computer games and when I really get into a game, I am so obsessed that I will forgo sleep just to finish it. So I am really looking forward to the release of Diablo III, because Diablo I was my very first PC game.

And so I tag Dominica, Lucrecia and Belowen!

Hi and thank you for tagging me !
One question, how do you put our names in your blogpost and link them to our blogs ?
I've been trying to do so but I'm a bit stupid I guess ...:-//

thank you so much !

Hey Domimica,
There's no such thing as a silly question.
To create a link in your new post, just use the Compose view in your blogger account.
On the toolbar with all the buttons, you should see a button that looks like a paperclip with a globe behind it. It's also the sixth item from the left.
Highlight the word/phrase you want to create a link too, click on that button and you will be prompted to enter in the URL of the page you want to link to.
I hope this makes sense!

Can we call you Bexx? (just kidding)
I think the fact that you baby talk to all animals means you'll be a good mother someday.
When Chinese food is bad, it's a waste of time,
but when Tai food is good, it's almost orgasmic. (did that make any sense?)

I love your loves.

Nina (femme rationale) said...

ah, love it! a few things:

1. i have a ceylon sapphire (light blue) and diamond engagement ring! i ALMOST got a pink sapphire but chose the ceylon cuz it's the stone i always always wanted and knew i would have to get. plus, it was not easy finding that particular sapphire. and my ring is one of a kind, too. you can see it peek out in some of my photos. ;)

2. orange coupe?...i am so curious...please do tell.

3. you do not look like a becky at all. not that i've seen what you look like, but based on your wardrobe and sense of style, rebecca is far more you.

oh, and p.s. your last comment almost made me spit out my coffee from laughter. i am truly flattered by it, tho. thank you. :)

diane - Bexx is not a I said, as long as it's not Becky ;)

Nina - the orange coupe refers to my Mitsubishi Eclipse, it looks like a ostentatious orange phallic thingy sometimes, but the colour makes it easy to spot in the parking lot! And I will keep an eye out for your engagement ring! ;)

ah, NICE. i love that you got a car in a unique color. it must accent your neutral wardrobe palette perfectly. ;)
