Something about the guy

Well, its tagging time again. And all around blogosphere, mak cik bloggers are revealing a little something about their unsuspecting Pak Ciks. I have been tagged by Wanshana and so, here goes:

1) He’s sitting in front of the TV, what is on the screen?

He hardly sits in front of the TV unless there's a very good documentary on. But more often than not, during the MasterChef season, he'd keep me company to watch the antics of the two presenters, John Torode and Gregg Wallace, only to imitate them when I produce something outrageous from the kitchen: "Hmmm, the flavour bursts in the mouth and swirls around teasing the taste buds...." says he about my bland nasi goreng.

2) You’re out to eat; what kind of dressing does he get on his salad?

I think he likes balsamic vinegar - is that a dressing?

3) What’s one food he doesn’t like?

Everything that I like such as scrumptious albeit greasy fried chicken wings from Chicken Cottage, very sweet condensed milk with a dash of coffee, cheese, lots of creamy cheese.

4) You go out to eat and have a drink. What does he order?

Teh O kurang manis. Anything organic and anything bran.
Oh, if it is Indian - it is prawn briyani.

5) Where did he go to high school?

Victoria Institute laaaa.

6) What size shoes does he wear?

This is a guess - 8.

7) If he was to collect anything, what would it be?

Newspapers, magazines. Phone cards. Anything that is being threatened by extinction. First day covers, books and more books.

8) What is his favorite type of sandwich?

Tuna or prawn mayo on wholemeal brown bread.

9) What would this person eat every day if he could?

He is a non fussy eater - I could be cooking nasi goreng everyday and he wouldnt mind. But of late he has expressed for lesser gorenged food. If and when he is in the kitchen, it'd be grilled chicken and potatoes.

10) What is his favorite cereal?

hmmmm, never seen him with cereals.

11) What would he never wear?

Anything with alphabets that boast of brandnames. He has been known to patiently unpick the stitches and labels.

12) What is his favorite sports team?

Just to be able to have a father to sons talk, he has read up about Arsenal and Barcelona. So, really, they are not his favourites. But he can impress them with terms like corner kicks and penalty kicks and rattle off names of footballers like he knows them personally.

13) Who did he vote for?


14) Who is his best friend?

Apart from the guy in Brazil, there's his surau mate - Haji Amin and then of course, me laah! Who else would he turn to to tell his repeated jokes?

15. What is something you do that he wishes you wouldn’t do?

Do you have until tomorrow to read? Here goes: Eat too much sugar, sigh, use the laptop on the lap (then why call laptop?) , spend too much time on mobile phone which he thinks fry the brain, disturb his cats sleeping, forgetting to take my supplements, etc, etc...

16. What is his heritage?

I think from across the Thai border. Will have to look at the family tree again.

17. What is his favourite colour?

Anything not glaring.

18. What is his habit?

Pulling off the duvet to wake me up for subuh.

19. What is he proud of?

His father .

20. Lastly, do you think he will read this?

A test would be to have severeal spelling misteaks and grandma eerors!

If this tag for the husbands to tell about their wives, then I bet question 2 would be changed to: You're out to eat; what kind of dressing does she wear?


Anyway, tak panas ke your lap dok use the laptop on your lap?

Roti Kacang Merah said...

Komen Pak Malim kucing ray yg alim.

Mmmmmmm, Tuna or prawn mayo on wholemeal brown bread, meleleh air liur saya memikirkannya, kata Pak Malim dan Singa Narnia. Agak2, boleh kongsi tak, kata Pak Malim yg takde otak.

wanshana said...

Kak Teh,

Thank you for doing the tag and sharing a (few) slice(s) of your beloved Awang Goneng with us :)

Ooooh...I love Prawn Mayo sandwich, too! Kat sini susah nak dapat, and kalau dapat pun, it's not the same :(

And #11 - does he really do that?! Wow...

Thanks again, Kak Teh :)

(It's summer time now right?)

mekyam said...

Naz in Norway said...

I think I like the answer to the last question the best. Hilarious you are, Kak Teh.

Kenny Mah said...

I love that, after all these years, there are still things you aren't sure about each other (i.e. the shoe size).

Nothing significant maybe, but cute. Keeps the spirit, the mystery alive, the romance, eh? :)

D said...

LOL! I love the last one! :)

melayudilondon said...

Nak tergolek baca the 1st one tu. Also nak habaq I read GED Lewis Out East. Found it very entertaining!

JuWieZy VoGueZ said...

Clarisse Teagen said...

Someone married the guy next door :)
He's an awesome dad to go study football just to interact with the kids.

Kak Teh said...

Pi Bani,
Hahaha! I like that and I will answer it for you. I will wear whatever I was wearing before. Just a spray of the perfume.

Panasssss! Mana boleh letak laptop, especially this one that I have radiates a lot of heat.

Kak Teh said...

Roti, dia memang very carefuk about what he eats and I am the opposite. So, its a constant battle - I love friend stuff - chicken especially.

Wan Nordin Wan Hussin said...

Yay I have a few things in common with AG including we like prawn briyani and we dislike cereal. Whenever we eat out at Indian restaurants in Batha, a Pinnoy town, in Riyadh, I always order PB.

NanaDJ said...

Well we get to know a bit more of AG now. A good dad and husband. what more could you ask for in life?

Kak Teh said...

Pak malim, oh kak teh dah sangka pak malim mesti suka tuna mayo, kak teh garu kepala sambil berkata aiyoyo! datanglah sini nanti kak teh boleh belanja, janji kak teh dengan penuh manja.

Wanshana, the pleasure is all mine. NO 11? oh yes!

Kak Teh said...

mekyam, balsamic vinegar and then tea only with honey! but no ysl or pink or any of those alphabets on shirts. Pantang tok nenek.

naz, number 18 tu kak teh kena sabar betul.

Kak Teh said...

andrea, hehe, i thought no one spotted or thought it must be my usual slip of the fingers!

Kenny dearest, hmmm you got me thinking now...if it is nit his shoe size then i must have confused it with something else...hahahahaha! perish the thought!!notti, notti!

Kak Teh said...

D, hehe - yes, he has been known to write me emails to correct my spellings and grammar!

melayu di london, yes, you know him well and you can imagine him doing that! yes, the ged lewis book is good. light and informative.

Kak Teh said...

juwita, thanks for the visit to my humble blog. yes, gorenged food are not good for you, hehe. I asked my children: dah mandi? yes, we have mandied!

clarisse, thanks, he must know something abt football or else he'd be lost in the conversation. Thanks for dropping by.

Kak Teh said...

nanaDJ, so far, alhamdulillah!!!

GUiKP, alas i cant make briyani and have never tried. There's a Pinnoy town in Riyadh? I just discovered that there's a pinnoy town too in earl's court - just near the MAS office.

DIN said...

BE Yet Wiser

DIN said...

Kak Teh,

Correction - Awang Goneng, not Awang 'Goreng'


Kak Teh said...

Din, nasib baik bukan Bawang Goreng!
