Tattoos or piercings?
I can’t choose between the two. I like both. My earlobes are pierced but if I would get another it would an industrial piercing at my right ear.
Tattoos are more permanent, I opt for temporary tatts instead. But I am always partial to silhouette tattoos.
Day or Night?
Day. I like to see everything clearly.
What is your favorite band or solo artist?
Within temptation. Their songs are edgy, with a tinge of beautiful darkness.
Your dream place to live?
Somewherenear the countryside with lots of green. But with all the modern facilities within reach.
Do you have a secret talent, if so what?
My neck is very flexible. I can move my head from left to right, front to back while my body remains stationary like a belly dancer.
What’s your favorite dessert?
Traditional Chinese desserts that my grandma makes. It’s so good and heartwarming. Green/red bean soup, Tau suan, 黑麥米， bobo chaha…
Music or tv?
Music of course. No competition there. I can’t go one day without it. I get withdrawal symptoms or a song will play like a broken record in my head.
What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Write and write and write.
Outside or inside?
It depends really.

A guy that can makes me laugh and never run out of conversations topics.

Char Char, Charmander, Char-mine-nee, Ang gu guei, Ahmina, Chowmien…

I always thought that the light in the fridge was switch on by tiny people who are waiting for someone to open the door.
Which animals scare you most and why?
I can’t think of any. Perhaps some insects but not all. I don’t mind spiders though.
What do you think about the most?
The future. I like to be prepared.
If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to?
I like my name even though interestingly my mother spelled it wrongly. She named me Charmine instead of Charmaine with two ‘a’s. She said that she was inspired from the word Charming and just removed the g.
Yeah, nice safe mom… But I guess it makes my name unique??? Ahah.
What’s a pick-up line that would work on you?
"Hey, I wish you were my little toe so that I could bang you on every furniture." The first time I heard that I laughed so hard.
Kebab or pizza?
If you could go to any for free country, where would you go?
Venice. Before it sinks.
Which of the four seasons is your favorite?
Autumn. I like the way dry leaves crackle and crunch under my feet.
Do you want to get tattoos? If so, where?
I do. But it must be after some serious thought. Maybe a silhouette of a scorpion at the side of my torso.
What’s your favorite quote?
"Speak softly but carry a big stick."

Wow. That’s tough. How bout something good instead? I thought I lost my favourite ring but my friend found it and returned it to me.

Bad Girls by M.I.A
What does your name mean?
Check above. A girl’s name has the meaning “charm” and is a variant of Charmaine (English): probably a modern name based on the word “charm” with -aine. It’s french. Huh. My mom gave me a real name even though she misspelled it. Fancy that.
If you could be an animal, what would it be?
A cat. They come and go as they please.
Power of mind-reading or invisibility?
Invisibility. I believe that one’s thoughts are their own. You may see something that you wouldn’t want to. Trust me. My own mind is a scary place to be sometimes.

Both. But not at the same time.

Tea. But I like a mix called yuanyang.
Plumeria. They represent spring, new life, new beginning, or birth
