Something different today instead of a review – I haven’t done a Tag in ages. I saw this on The Makeup Case and had to do my own spin on it. 😉
What is your middle name?
Hoarder. Stash Hoarder Matters is my name, don’t wear it out! 😛
What was your favorite subject in school?
In high school I really loved Industrial Arts or erm it used to be called “Shop” class. I made a wooden bowl on the lathe, and a wooden piggy bank. It was an awesome class!
What is your favorite drink?
I’ve answered this before elsewhere so I’ll name another one I like: Jack fruit shake. I get this from our local Vietnamese restaurant and it is so refreshing. It tastes kind of like Neapolitan ice cream but lighter.
What is your favorite song at the moment?
I’ve had “Follow You Follow Me” in my head for a few weeks ever since I saw the animated short “Lily & the Snowman” from Cineplex!
*Is someone cutting onions?* 😕
What are your favorite kids names?
I’m not planning to have kids but I like old fashioned names like Mabel and Beatrice. Someone told me they were thankful I wasn’t having kids to spare them those names. 😆
Do you participate in any sports?
What is your favorite book?
Not sure if it’s my favourite, but The Road by Cormac McCarthy had such a strong effect on me. It’s mostly super depressing but with a slight glimmer of hope. I actually cried reading this!
What is your favorite animal?
At the zoo, I always like to see the Orangutans. They seem so wise.
What is your favorite perfume?
Stella by Stella McCartney
Any that involves this trifecta: time off, food, and presents!
Have you graduated from high school?
Have you ever been out of the country?
Uh, asking a Canadian this question is like asking if they’ve crossed the street. I honestly do not know a single Canadian who hasn’t at least been to the US. I love travelling! My goal is to make it to all the continents before I die (have not been to Australia, Africa, and South America… not sure about visiting Antarctica though)
Do you know any other languages?
Some French, very limited Cantonese. I wish I knew more swear words in both.
Do you have any siblings?
Yes, a younger sister by 2 years. 🙂 We’re both adopted.
So difficult to choose… one that I visit often is Kenzo Ramen. It’s such great comfort food.
Did you like school?
Yes I did. And yes, I was a keener. 😛
Who are your favorite YouTubers?
I’ll try to name ones that aren’t mentioned as often:
Makeup by Eman (I’ve actually met her in person – quite accidentally inside Sephora when she was working at the MUFE counter. I asked her, “Um do you make YT videos?” and her coworker started laughing at her. 😛 I told her that I loved her channel):
What is your favorite movie?
Difficult to pick one movie as an absolute favourite and I don’t want to repeat some others I’ve already named before so here’s one I really loved: Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) directed by Guillermo del Toro. It’s a fantasy film that doesn’t star a lot of big names but has amazing imagery and left a great impression on me.
What are your favorite TV shows?
I don’t watch any current TV shows. Old favourites include The Wire, Arrested Development, and Breaking Bad. Any TV shows you’d recommend to me?
PC or Mac?
PC – I find the term PC (aka Personal Computers) funny. It’s more of a product category rather than a brand; Mac is a Personal Computer. It’d be better to ask: HP / Dell / Lenovo etc vs Apple. 😛 I currently have a Dell.
What kind of phone do you use?
I have 2 phones – no, not a drug dealer – one is a Blackberry and the other is iphone; one is for personal and the other is for work.
What is your height?
5’3″ I wish I had a couple more inches. I guess that’s what heels are for. 😉
Do you have any pets?
Not currently. But I love dogs. My SO loves cats. One day we will have one or two or three of each! But currently we’re dog-sitting my friend’s Australian Shepherd / Sheltie mix for a week! 😀 We’ve dog-sat her a few times before – she’s a very sweet dog.
The pictures of the cute Bengal kitty on my IG is my in-laws’ cat, Molly. 🙂
Have you done this tag? I’d love to read your answers! ⭐
