Kitchen Flavours (Lubna) of Yummy Food has tagged me with the “Seven Facts About You” Meme. As this is my first tag, I am getting all excited as this would be one of those rare moments where I can ‘expose’ myself! Okay, okay, I agree…that was pretty gross!

Anyway, the rules of the meme are:

a) List the rules on the blog;
b) Share 7 facts about you; and
c) Tag 7 other people at the end of the blog.

The seven facts about me are:

1. I am an EXTROVERT – I love being the centre of attention – it must be the Aries in me (does this count as one or two facts??)

2. I am a NEAT FREAK – Everything has to be spotless and in an orderly manner - I tend to catalogue everything….I told you I was a freak!

3. I am EASILY BORED…. so I am always planning and doing things. Poor Mr G …. When all he wants to do is put his feet up!
4. I own 120 PAIRS OF SHOES - no I am not joking – I am in search of that elusive ultimate comfortable high heels! Isn’t this an oxymoron??

5. I usually DRINK one cup of TEA a day with CONDENSED MILK! Eww I hear some of you say! All I can say is don’t knock it back until you’ve tried it, so there!

6. I Hate VEGEMITE. That does not make me very patriotic, does it? Thank god it wasn’t on the citizenship test as I would have flunked!

7. I am a ‘FOLDER’ as opposed to a ‘SCRUNCHER’… that one out!

Hmm… there are more things to write but as the tag specified seven facts, this would have to do. Also, I don’t want to give too much away, do I? LOL

In turn, I would like to tag the following bloggers:
1. Family First
2. Sweet Bites
3. What Do I Want 2 Cook Today
4. My Kitchen Snippets
5. Mexican American Border Cooking
6. Tastes of Home
7. Salt n Turmeric

Enjoy your few minutes of FAME!

Love, VG

i wish i have 120 pairs of shoes! hahah. but its so hard to find anything tht i like (or in my size)here in the US.

VG said...

Hi KF....yes 120 pairs. I am a bloody lunatic, I know.But it is not my always feel confortable in the shops but when you take them home and wear them, they become a nightmare on my feet!


Yes, tagging is like a game. It's a way of getting to know your fellow bloggers, as well as generating 'traffic' to your blog.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depends on how you look at it) I have no blood ties with Imelda, but we do share the passion!


I had the exact problem when I lived in Malaysia. All you petite people (I am envious) made 'big foot' like me so hard to get shoes. I had to draw my feet on paper and my aunt in England used to buy my shoes from there. I had to buy men's shoes for school cos women's shoes hardly went beyond size 8 or 9. Now here in Australia, I have to quickly grab the size cos it is one of the popular sizes! So, I am putting down my fettish to shoes because of my deprived childhood! That's my story and I am sticking to it (although Mr G says it's just an excuse to buy shoes; nothing to do with deprivation)....LOL!

I'm going to have to think about mine before I post but like u I have lots of shoes too LOL I think about 150?? hahahha
and my fav high heel is a pair of nude patent Louboutins :)

VG said...

Wow...a fellow shoe nutter!

I have too many favourites which are also my nigtmare cos they hurt my feet! I am a bit partial to Gucci (including handbags!), Bally and Jimmy Choo (go Dato' Choo....)

Loved reading that! My dad used to drink tea with condensed milk!
What are you like 120 pairs of shoes?!!
Thanks for passing the tag on to me.

VG said...

I like your father Jan...A man after my own taste.

Yes, I debated whether to put the shoe fettish bit up...I am ashamed! It didn't help that a few years ago I used to work part-time in a major department store and of all places, in the shoe section. Guess where most of my pay went???
