Cilok-ed these from Aira (hehe don’t mind kan?). Running thru the list in a jiff, I knew that most of them will get a NO answer from me (the been there, done that part), but I think no harm in dreaming kan? Check it out, and cross check yourself too!
1. Started your own blog
~ some times in 2002 kot. friendster blog.
2. Slept under the stars –
~in Taman Negara during camping activity. Not really under-the-star/under-the-star but still, we slept inside the tent which was right under the bright shining stars!
3. Played in a band
~Yes, indeed (I have fetish for bandboy as a boyfriend, remember?). It was during one of his jamming session (You and I Both by Jason Mraz), but I didn’t la played any instrument, cuma vocs je 🙂
4. Visited Hawaii and danced on a lava cliff with the roar of the Pacific below
~ I snorted upon hearing a colleague asking the secretary to get him tix for Hawaii in the net. No, nothing funny, it’s just that I’ve never met anybody who has been to Hawaii before, and it would totally be an experience!
5. Watched a meteor shower
~ Never, but I bet it is TDF
6. Do a little charity
~ yes (have) and yes (in any given day). It was during MoF treasure hunt heading Lumut and we stopped at an orphanage; cleaning their toilets, halls and distributed some foods for them! It was indeed a breathtaking experience.
7. Been to Disneyland
– hmm raincheck?
8. Climbed a mountain
~ proudly yes. Gunung Ledang. I was quite fit last time and was the only girl who managed to reach the top with a bunch of guys (I was THAT close to entering faint-land but my buddy Izral held my hand and practically dragged me to finish the climb). It was all worth it coz the view atop was outtataworld. Mt Kinabalu is top on the list with the BJ gang, Insyaallah soon.

28. Ridden in a gondola in Venice
~ rumours had it that the smell of the rivers were %^&*, but did I care a pinch?! (high on my to-do list! but definitely have to share a gondola since the price is insanely high!)
