This is not about you.

It's been a while since I had someone to tag me. *grins*

Thanks Gemini Girl!

The 11 random facts about me (plus mon photo), which I think a repeat as I have done this before but anyway they are:

1.  I go to Twitter when I'm terribly angry, terribly miserable and terribly bored.

2.  My user name on Twitter is 3ioni [ayooni], the arabic for "my eyes". Please stalk me there :p

3.  I have 24 likers on my Facebook page. Hahaha. If you are interested, you can go through it

4.  I am currently reading "Sophie's World" which is now eating my brain. But seriously, I am looking at everything (noticing and appreciating) around me in entirely different way now because of that.

5.  Language is my passion. From Español filipino to English to Nihongo to Français to 3rabish. 

6.  I was born in the island (province/rural area) and spent the first 10 years of my life there. My family migrated in a northern Manila suburb (slum area) when I was 10.

7.  I went to 3 different public elementary schools. I spent my 1st, 3rd & 4th grades in one school, 2nd grade in another school in pursuit of finding a better teacher LOL (both in the province). My 5th & 6th grades were in Manila suburb.

8.  I was excellent in Math and wanted to be an Engineer but since my parents couldn't afford to send me to an Engineering school (my sister was in her final year in a private university that time), I went to a state-university and took Broadcast Communication as per my sister suggestion.

9.  I was always the dumbest English student in my class from grade school to high school to university.

10. My 1st job interview in Manila was with Equitable (now BDO) one of the leading banks there. Aside from the fact that I couldn't express myself in English properly when I was asked to tell about my family I just said, I have a happy family. LOL. Obviously I wasn't prepared..

11. My 1st job interview in Dubai was with Middle East Aston Martin in the Emirates Towers, I was too nervous and found myself struggling with English. I know because the job interviewers (a British guy and an Indian guy) asked me if I know English or something like that. Of course, I didn't get the job. LOL. 

And my answers to the 11 questions:
