I got tagged

I've been tagged by lotus & reirei so I have no excuse not to do the meme. It has been a while since I last did one anyway. So whether you want to know this or not, here are 6 random/useless information about me.

1. I suck at ball games. I'm fairly atheletic but have absolutely no ball sense. Alright so I'm probably too small to play basketball or volleyball but even tennis, softball, football, you name it, I'm just not good with balls.

2. I'm basically a shy person. This may come as a surprise to some but I've always been shy even as a child. One reason why there aren't a lot of pictures of me as a child & the few that my mother has, shows the back of my head because I was always running away or hiding behind someone. I am always a little awkward amongst strangers (even now) & it takes a while before I warm up towards someone.

3. I hate wearing socks at home. I hate it with a vengence. The first thing I do when I enter the house is to remove both shoes & socks. Thankfully we have heated flooring so even in winter, I walk around bear foooted.

4. I used to be a dancer. Used to because it has been a long time since I last danced. I don't mean dancing in a disco or club but dancing as a performance. I never had proper dance training but from when I was little all the way to university days, I was always taking part in school dance perfomances - folk, jazz & modern dance.

5. I love foreign movies. No, I'm passionate about foreign language movies. I only watch them in their original language with subtitles & won't have it any other way. From Japanese to obscure Inuktitut (language of the Inuit people), the more off beat the more it appeals to me. I had a subscription to Sight & Sound (a British film magazine) for years. You can imagine, living in NY was like being in foreign movie mecca. I would go to film festivals, movie screenings & was a member of this DVD club that specialises in foreign movies. Nowadays, the only ones we watched are the Bollywood ones that The Girl seem to like.

6. I may be one of few Asians who dislike karaoke. I can't sing to save my life & don't want anybody to have to put up with my bad singing. Not even after a few drinks can I be coaxed to take the microphone. I don't even like to sing, to begin with. So please don't invite me to any karaoke parties.

Phew I had a hard time coming up with these 6.
