Share Your World – 2015 Week #4
Where did you live at age five? Is it the same place or town you live now?
At age 5, I lived in a tiny suburban residential area on the east coast of the tiny island of the Republic of Singapore. I now say it’s tiny but when I was 5 years old I thought it was a gigantic place because I had to get into a car when Dad drove to town. That island where I used to live is 10,400 miles away ~ air and road combined.
You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met. Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?
I may, depending who is inviting. If it’s a friend or a friend’s friend I would but if it’s a business organization, I would give it a miss.
Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
I grew up in a small suburban area with good schools and almost everyone knew everyone via Parents Teachers Assoociation, churches, shops and market stalls … it was just a safe place. We didn’t lock doors, neighbors visited & played with neighbors & on Christmas Eve after midnight mass, everyone would just greet and share food. It was just one mega-party and I loved it!
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Since both my parents were teachers, I just expected myself to continue that profession ~ but it didn’t work out. During the 2nd year internship I realized that kids were not my scene, grabbed my credits and switch to business studies.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
My niece, her husband and little son were to have come to visit after flying in from London, but they were all down with the flu and were stuck in New York. I was so relieved (& grateful) that they had bought full travel insurance and were covered. I’m looking forward to them coming down south IF they can get a flight. With the forecasted blizzard, I would be grateful just to hear them say “We made it to Orlando, come get us!”
