Friday's Feast #8

How many pieces of jewellery do you wear most days?
One pair of earrings, except I haven't worn them the last couple of days since I had some x-rays on Wednesday... Oh, and the watch too - extremely important and I get flustered without it!

What is your favourite instrumental song?
This is a terrible question to ask a classical musician - I will be here for the remainder of the year! I don't ever have absolute favourites with music (hence the difficulty in me answering this question) but to answer this question, my favourite instrumental song would probably be Rhapsody in Blue (George Gershwin). One of my many dreams is to be able to play that on piano... some day! I have other favourites like Stranger on the Shore (Acker Bilk) and Classical Gas and...

Who has a last name that you like?
I like my own surname. It's a pity that I will lose it someday but it will always be a part of me.

Main Course
Name a popular movie you’ve never seen.
Schindler's List! I have wanted to see it for many years but I discovered that the local video store didn't have it, I've decided it can wait just a little longer.

Fill in the blank: Nothing makes me ___________ like ____________.
Nothing makes me feel happy quite like enjoying the holidays with my loved ones and not having to think about exams!

Friday's Feast #7

Well, I have finally finished exams, so no more reasons not to blog anymore! That was one long and shocking semester and I am glad to be on holidays! :)

Finally, a Friday's Feast on this blog - my first one in just over a month. Enjoy!

Name a funny habit you have.
Ummm... you just put me on the spot there! Well, I sometimes sing when I'm walking. It's such a feel good thing to sing, and I love to sing anywhere (I have been known to surprise house guests with my shower singing - don't worry, I'm not "shocking" or anything!). And I don't need music to sing (eg when out and about in public). Do I care what other people think? Not really :)

If you could instantly know how to play a musical instrument, which one would you pick?
Well, I've been through this process a few times, but I've always wanted to try my sister's clarinet :P. I would love to play anything - double bass, drum kit, trumpet, trombone, cello. Of course, music is something that definitely requires practice to master, and I'm glad that being a musician that I can appreciate the enormous effort professional musicians have put in to get to where they are :)

How long is your hair?
Somewhat long, but even longer when straightened. Sometimes when I wash my hair I wonder what is on my spine, and then I realise it's my hair! Still getting used to the current length and recently I have realised that I awkwardly bend my thoracic spine to avoid it touching my back sometimes!

Main Course
When was the last time you forgave someone, and who was it?
The last time must have been for something insignificant like being late for an informal meeting with someone. I can't remember, but when a situation is there, I try and forgive as soon as possible. Often the people who "hurt" me don't offer apologies but I still forgive them anyway because it is better to love than hate. That said, I'm not sure I can easily "forgive" those people who have written my recent exams! ;) Haha

What is your favourite kitchen appliance?
I do like cooking but I don't have a favourite appliance... The refrigerator is awesome though :) - does that count as an appliance?

I know this is a very belated post - it should have been done two weeks ago actually. I guess this message is particularly directed at the Friday Feasters who have probably wondered why I haven't popped by their sites yet :$. I would just like to post a small notice asking you all to please excuse my absence from the Blogosphere until approximately one week's time (more specifically, one week and one day). In case you are wondering, I am dutifully fulfilling my exhaustive commitments as a student, a role which is extremely important to me, which at this point in time involves preparing for and sitting my end-of-semester exams (called "finals" in other countries). I've had 3 so far, and still got 2 more to go! Wish me luck! :)
