I’ve finally finished my University examinations
for the year, and now I’ve got all this time
to start doing all the things I’ve been planning to do for ages
. You’ll be seeing some changes here and there and there are a few blog posts lined up and etc :) But for now, I’ll be answering some Frequently Asked Questions
to clear up some air ♥
Name: Melody Chong
Chinese name: Embarrassing as it is, it’s 美丽 *-* If you don’t know what it means, look it up or ..just ignore it :D !
Religion: I’m Christian (Pentecostal) ! I’ve been a Christian my whole life and even though I don’t frequent Church as much as I used to, I still live by God’s word.
Nationality: I’m Malaysian Chinese! And no, do not call me Malay – because that’s completely different ! But for those who want to go down to specifics, my Father is Hakka and my Mother is Peranakan/Nyonya-Baba. (Although it can be noted that I’m probably mixed somewhere along the tracks because my mum isn’t even sure herself)
Place of Birth: I was born in Malaysia but I moved to Australia when I was 1~2 years old so I don’t really remember anything about it ! :(
Languages: English, Japanese, Malay. And then small bits of other languages consisting of Canto, Mando etc. And odd thing to add is that, Cantonese was actually my first language (well with English?) when I lived in Malaysia with my relatives. But when I moved to Australia, I forgot it all as my parents never speak it with me :)
Why I can speak Malay: I can understand Malay because it’s the only language apart from English that my parents share fluently. They both can speak other languages that the other knows bits of but not able to fully communicate with! And they’ve always mixed Malay in to their every day speech so I eventually picked up quite a lot of basic words :)
How long have Vu and I been together: We’ve been together for nearly 8 months and I’m planning on staying with him for much much muchhh longer ♥ He’s my best friend and I love him so much (:
When did I start blogging: I started blogging in 2004 on MSN spaces. From then, I’ve had countless of blogs. Some that are more dedicated than others :) I’ve had: MSN Spaces, Xanga, Blogger, WordPress, Livejournal ..and well, lots of blogs on the one platform. If I were to count every single blog that I’ve started since then, I don’t think I can tell you a specific number.
Why did I start blogging: Well, since I was a child, I’ve always been scared that I’d “forget” things. So, since I was in like Prep, I’ve written in paper diaries. I have about 10+ of them stored somewhere *-* And then it continued when I discovered blogging :) That, and I want to share my knowledge and advice to all the girls and guys reading this !
Things I like: I like a whole lot of things ! I love blogging and I love reading other people’s blogs and of course the comments you awesome people leave for me to read. In saying that, I love reading in general. I want to have my own library one day !! And I like drawing and anything crafty – although I haven’t done anything of the sorts in a long long long time. I like writing fiction and ..blog posts. I like meeting people from across the globe. I love cute things yet gothic things. I love Arashi. And well, this list could go on so I should stop here ;)
Things I don’t like: There aren’t that many things that I don’t like. Okay, that’s a lie. I can sometimes be a very hateful person and just get annoyed really easily at the most simplest of things. But generally, I just don’t like people who well ..try too hard? I don’t know. Even though I stress and want things to work out my way most of the time; I also don’t like it when people worry too much – you need to relax :)
And I guess that’s all I’ll do for now. :)
These questions will probably go up in to a FAQ tab that I’ll add soon; and if you would like to add any questions to ask me, feel free to leave it in the comments or email me: email@example.com
You can even use my Formspring to ask anonymously if you’re too shy !
