Aiyah, I'm just touched you came to visit...

1. I'll respond with something random about you

I think you're the weirdest Christian I've ever met. Tigers and boyfriends and exorcisms???

2. I'll challenge you to try something

Publish a collection of your poetry.

Black.

4. I'll tell you something I like about you

You're devastatingly honest. I can't manage that.

CAP '94 was it? I remember a poetry workshop together... you read something impressive... and your RI formal uniform in LT13...

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of

A cobra. They're sacred in India, remember.

7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you

What's the entire story with your demonic possession? You never told me leh...

Terry said...

Wah lau you make me sound so damn goth! I was never possessed lah - or at least, I was never exorcised........

Ng Yi-Sheng said...

You're like a sesame seed tangyuan... white and uniform and pristine on the outside and dark and crumbly and mysterious on the inside.

I'd also say you're yummy, but that doesn't sound right, given that we're platonic.

Mezzo said...

and you wonder why no one comments...

Ng Yi-Sheng said...

Since you commented...

1. I'll respond with something random about you

I never knew you had identity issues until you told me. Inner turmoil or not, you've always come off as a really cool-weird girl.

2. I'll challenge you to try something

Initiate another archaeological excavation of Singapore.

3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you

Yellow.

4. I'll tell you something I like about you

You don't let society's expectations boss you around.

5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you

Well earliest would prob have been CAP 97 or something, but my clearest memory of you is you asking me to kiss you in RJC LT1 and me doing it... first kiss on the lips, and it was wacky. (shrug).

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of

Unicorn.

7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you

How did you end up with Zak, anyway?

Terry said...

In the spirit of things:

1. I'll respond with something random about you

I always loved watching your facial expressions when HPF talked during CWC.

2. . I'll challenge you to try something

Splurge just for the sake of it. A toy. A watch. A posh dinner.

3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you

Peach

4. I'll tell you something I like about you

You never compromise your standards.

5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you

That very same poetry workshop, you gangly and animated in that AC uniform, reading an impressive poem.

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of

Platypus. They are the closest you can find to the chimera.

7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you

Why did you stop being a Christian?

Mezzo said...

quid pro quo

1. I'll respond with something random about you

There's just something so damned adorable about the way your face lights up when you hear about something exquisitely ridiculous. And then you giggle, and I want to plant you one.

2. . I'll challenge you to try something

Leather bicycle pants.

3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you

That bit of colour on the rainbow that's between the green and the blue.

4. I'll tell you something I like about you

You're a strangely gentle person.

5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you

Not the first, but the clearest: Prancing through the Eusof Hall counsel room to "Don't Cry for me Argentina", rather like a woodland sprite. I was thinking, "damn, wish I could do that without dying of shame."

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of

This is purely because of your avatar: golden tamarin.

7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you

Did you ever get merde from the boys in ACS? (the original question has been withdrawn on grounds of Respecting Z's Feelings)

----------------------------

As for how i ended up with him, it may or may not have involved bludgeoning a G&T to his head.

z said...

so THAT's how i woke up woozy with her lips on my head..

Cody the Destroyer said...

I never ever ever play football. I never really even watch football, except last year's national championship college game because there was something personally important for me about my home state beating my bitch ex-girlfriend's home state and college at anything. And we did!

Ng Yi-Sheng said...

In reply to Sarah, I only got shit from the ACS boys because I was eccentric and useless at sports. And it was hardly ever direct shit, either: it was just this sense of being an outsider. Since we've graduated and aren't compelled to be in the same room, they've been very accepting of all the new developments in my life.

And I believe, my dear Syed Zakir Husain, that that was a comment...

1. I'll respond with something random about you

You're deceptively staid. I never knew you were interesting until Qian Xi told me the political conversations she'd had with you.

2. . I'll challenge you to try something

Learning Mandarin again. Oxford wasn't the right place; I bet you could do it if you went for an immersion course.

3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you

White with a faint cast of electric blue.

4. I'll tell you something I like about you

You have balls. You go out and talk about the death penalty and the maid abuse committed by MP candidates' siblings. :)

5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you

Not the first either - when we were at the Substation doing a poetry reading late at night, and you read our deliberately bad poem so seriously that people thought it was genuine.

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of

The wombat.

7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you

Did you always know you wanted to be a journalist?

Anonymous said...

1. I'll respond with something random about you

You're a breath of fresh air, a burst of energy.

2. . I'll challenge you to try something

Write a movie script.

3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you

saffron

4. I'll tell you something I like about you

You never shy from asking the most uncomfortable questions, and you never fail to surprise (even though that is no surprise by now). That you were president of CQA was a very pleasant one.

5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you

Not the first, but the most vivid: you displaying the slain penis of a cow (don't think it was halal) around your living room to guests at your birthday party last year. I won't forget their reactions.

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of

Albatross

7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you

Would you consider me Chinese if I said I was?

***

Answer to your question: no, among other things, i wanted to be architect, lawyer and bureaucrat.

jabir said...

this is late but seeing as i've only just got back from !japan! ;D

Ng Yi-Sheng said...

Oh dear, this is indecent...

1. I'll respond with something random about you

I wanted you from the minute I saw you. :-p

2. . I'll challenge you to try something

Become a Japanese expatriate.

3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you

Brown.

4. I'll tell you something I like about you

Cute, smart and athletic... wait, that's three things.

5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you

Standing against the wall sipping wine at Brian's art launch. But of course, I saw you before that on Alf's blog.

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of

The jerboa.

7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you

Who's your number two? (Don't answer that on this blog.)

I held out for a long time because I was shy but as you said, what the hell. Hit me.
