6 Weird Things or Facts About Sam Chan

I was tagged by Jenny How (6 Weird Things about me). In fact, I was also tagged by Sindhu for similar topic (8 Facts about me) last month. Sidhu, sorry for the delayed response!

Finally, I had decided to disclose some of my Top Secret! Here are some weird things about me:

1. I don't like fruits! Well, maybe because when I was very young, I had to drink a lot of orange juice after both of my hands scalded by a pot of boiling sugar mixture.

2. Many girls admired me because of my fair complexion. Many had mistaken me as a "Mat Salleh" and asked me how I got such a fair complexion? Well maybe because of Chilli :-)

3. I love hot and spicy food so much so that Chilli is like my vitamin. I used to spread chilli sauce to my bread during my younger days. During my younger days, I don't even eat a single piece of vegetables.

4. I don't exercise at all. My fingers does the most exercise in front of my computer. I believe I got to change this, my body is showing me symptoms that I gotta.

5. I only admire two great singers in my life. In my younger time, it was Sam Hui. I can sing almost every songs - word by word eventhough I was English Educated. Sad to said, during that time, Karaoke hasn't become popular. Otherwise, I might had become a singer or at least a Malaysian Idol. Now you know why I called myself Sam Chan :-) Anyway, nowadays, I could only sing church songs. Of late, the singer that I like most is Janice Wei Lan. She can sing so well, that her songs become my breakfast, lunch and supper.

6. I had experienced owning a car that I need to remove water by buckets early in the morning after a heavy downpour at night. In one occasion, that same car wiper flew off while I was driving in the rain. Another occasion, the car clutch cable snapped and I could only drive using the first gear (manual transmission) and everybody honked me thinking that I was driving so slow. I had sold a car below the price I paid for my HP Ipaq pocket pc.

Ohh... I gotta stop, I had shared too much....

Okay, now I am curious to read some weird things about these people in their blog too: Jennifer Jones, Surjit, Philip Stolle, Christy, Ilker Yoldas and Janice Ng.

If you are reading this then you are also tagged! Go ahead and tell me what is the weirdest thing about yourself.

Hi Jenny,

Well this post really rekindle my memories. Just imagine how much I love singing Sam Hui songs that I was willing to rewind his song tapes so many times to translate (romanized) it so that I could sing.

Chilli padi will open my taste bud when food doesn't taste nice - weird right? :-)

Jenny, Thanks for tagging me and gave me the fun.

Your participation is indeed a source of inspiration for me.

Best wishes.

Hi Janice,

Indeed, this post had broken the theme of my blog. Anyway, I reckoned, sometimes it is good to break the monotonous stuff a bit.

Well, it was Jenny How's tag that excited me to reveal my personal story. Anyway, your questions does gives me a bit of inspiration as well.

Looking forward to read weird things about you if you are willing to share. :-)

Best Wishes to you, Janice.

It was the blessings from God, my experiences in life and the great changes that I had gone through in life that makes me who I am today.
