Tag it

I received a message from Leigh over at The Good Stuff, saying that I've been tagged. Mystified, I wandered over and found these instructions:

1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird things about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.


I am not usually one for chain-letter type posts but this one seems like a good way to get to know other foodies and read more quality food-blogs. So here goes:

7 random things about myself

1. I love eggs. Fried, boiled, poached, steamed, omelettes, in soup, as an ingredient, in any shape or form. Best. Food. Ever. I even love the shape of eggs. Go figure.

2. I sang in choirs and musical groups from the age of 10 to 20, taking part in competitions and travelling overseas on tours along the way. I sometimes wish that I am still singing and my voice is no longer as good as it used to be with regular training, but I still enjoy attending choral and musical performances with a practiced and appreciative ear.

3. I love cats. Meow. They have such personalities and I like their independence and grace.

4. My husband and I 'met' each other online, on an internet forum discussing (of all things) JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and other works (and movies).

5. I am a Mac user.

6. My paternal great-great-grandfather had his own martial arts school in Guangzhou, China. Like many people from Southern China during the 18th and 19th centuries, my great-grandfather migrated to Malaysia and that's how the Nanyang (or 'south seas', as Singapore and Malaysia were known at that time) branch of the family started.

7. I tend to drink red wines in the UK and chilled white wines in Singapore. Not surprising really given that whites are more refreshing to the palate when it is 32 degrees celsius outdoors, and it is awkward serving reds at the appropriate 'room' temperature; you don't get 18-22 degrees indoors in Singapore unless you have freezing airconditioning.

7 blogs that I enjoy reading

I have decided to highlight some of the food blogs that I enjoy reading rather than going at random. Life is too short, you know.

1. Rasa Malaysia
2. A Slice of Cherry Pie
3. Let's Get Wokking
4. Aidan Brooks: Trainee Chef
5. Closet Cooking
6. What's For Lunch Honey?
7. Just Hungry
