20 Things About Me

It’s my first post! Yay me! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

Welcome dear reader. Being the kepo (Singlish [kay-poh] adj. nosey, really curious, a busybody) person that I am, I assume you’d want to know a little more about me the same way I'd want to know more about you if this was your first post. 

Well, here are 20 random things about me.

  1. My blog’s name is Hello, Hadijah because it sounds like people are saying hello to me whenever they say it out loud.  I might have narcissistic tendencies now and then. (-‸ლ)

  2. I grew up a third culture kid

  3. I would love to be a polyglot but I feel like the only language that's been hardwired into my brain is English. I’m working on it though.

  4. I love cats but I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to cat hair. I can never go to a cat cafe. (╥﹏╥) 

  5. I’d like to wear jeans all day, every day. 

  6. I love roller coasters. They are to me, what death metal is to Aggretsuko

  7. If I could choose a superpower, I’d choose invisibility. Not because I’d like to sneak up on my enemies, but more so because I can just disappear whenever I'd like. |_・)

  8. I’m an educator. I think it’s an amazing privilege to be a part of someone else’s learning process. 

  9. I am a big fan of both coffee and tea. In a Venn Diagram of coffee lovers and tea lovers, I'm in the overlap. I don’t understand how people can choose one or the other.  ┐( ˘ 、 ˘ )┌ 

  10. "I’m really into phoneography.” is my convenient excuse for why I take most of my photos using my iPhone 6S and Xperia XA2. Sometimes I use my Sony A5100. Sometimes. When I remember.

  11. As you’ve probably noticed, I have a thing for 顔文字. (/ ̄ー ̄)/~~☆’.・.・:★’.・.・:☆

  12. I’ve always wanted to see The Killers perform but every time I have tickets, something goes awry. 

  13. I'm obsessed with stationery. Pens. Notebooks. Planners. Highlighters. ♡\( ̄▽ ̄)/♡

  14. I am the middle child in a sisters-only-trifecta. 

  15. One of my favorite books as a child/tween was Dianne Wynne Jones’ Howl’s Moving Castle. I only recently watched the Studio Ghibli adaptation and I loved it. ヽ(♡‿♡)ノ 

  16. The best decision I made as an adult was to have LASIK done. I wore glasses for most of my life, so I sometimes still adjust my phantom glasses.

  17. I’m obsessed with lipstick, especially red lipstick, but I hardly (more like, never) wear it. 

  18. My favorite drink to order at a Kopitiam (Singapore coffee shop) is a Teh Cino. Second favorite drink is a Milo Dinosaur

  19. I love binge-watching the extended versions of the Lord of the Rings. It’s my idea of a really good time.

  20. I think The Answer ’42’ perfectly encapsulates the meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything. 

Til the next one!
