Five Question Friday & Friday Five

So this Friday's Five questions are rather emotional in the sense that we are remembering what happened during the 9/11 bombing. I know you guys remember that. Although I am not from the US, I do remember that and have followed the news and mourned together with you guys. Today challenge is to remember your 9/11 experience.

Unlike my foreign friends, especially from the US, it was less traumatic for me since I am miles away but that didn't stop me from crying and feeling the sorrow of peoples lost and traumatic experiences. As I remember that day I woke up late because I watched dvd all night long. My partner and I stayed in the house to relax. We don't really watch news  regularly and often late in what's happening around the world. 

But suddenly I feel like watching t.v. So I opened the t.v and there I was confronted with the terror of aerial bombing in the US. It was such a shock. Until now, when I remember the event or see picture, I still cry. I still feel the pain. I still mourn with the families who lost their love ones.

On a lighter note, here are today's Five Question Friday

1. Do you feel guilty spending money on yourself?
** before I did. I was always thinking of ways to avoid buying something for myself and thinking of ways on how that money can contribute to the household. But now, since I am earning sufficiently, I allot a little for myself. Well the only addiction that I have are books, so it's quite cheaper and guilt free to invest right?

2. How well do you know your neighbors?
** Well that depends. I live together with my partner and I go home to my mom who lives in the province. I don't know anybody here in the metro but I do see faces often. Occasional Hi and Hellos. But when I go home to my mom, I know almost anybody. It's actually a small community. I can go inside a neighbors house even if there's nobody home. I know their kids, their relatives, their classmates, almost anything even gossip! :p

3. What age are you looking forward to being?
**30-40. I don't know why women fret coming to this age but I am looking forward to it. Although I can say that I don't know how it feels since I don't see myself getting married any time now, I want to see what I becomes at that age. And yes I still want to have a child before that but it doesn't mean I need to get married. :)

4. Do you get excited when the mail comes? Why?
** No. I don't use snail mail, if that still exist. I don't get books from authors like some of my blogger friends for review purposes. The only time I am excited is when I know that I bought books and it will be delivered.

5. What is your earliest childhood memory?
** Earliest childhood memory is me climbing up the dresser and looking for my Christmas present that my dad bought. It was two weeks before Christmas and I can't resist the temptation of peeking. And yeas, I got caught! Lol.


  1. Hi new friend! It's weird, I'm not afraid of flying...I don't even think I was afraid the first time I was on a plane after 9/11. Everything else...totally afraid! I look for exit signs no matter where I am, I hate crowds...stuff like that :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by. :) Well everybody was entitled to get paranoid especially after what happened.

  3. We always snuck a look at our presents before hand. My sister knew all the hiding places and then our parents got smart and hid our presents at a friends house!

  4. Thanks for showing tribute to that awful day in our country!

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  5. Di. Thinking about it, I realize I always do it before Christmas. It was fun seeing your gifts but the excitement isn't there anymore. :)

  6. Beth. It's great to remember something that change everybody but sad to remember all we've lost during the tragedy.

  7. Thank you for stopping by my blog!

    Have a great weekend,
    Shopper Gal
