Have You Ever?

Took the liberty of grabbing this tag from my online pal Niko. It looks like fun and it sure is one way to let you all know me a little bit more.

And here are my answers as best as I can:
1. have you ever been on tv?
NEVER. But it doesn't matter since I prefer the backstage better.

2. have you ever sang in public?
Yes, I have. I was once a member of our choir in grade school and joined in some competitions. I have also been to amateur singing contests in our community when I was still a kid. But don't ask me to sing these days. I sound like a frog na naipit. Where did my "golden voice" go?
3. have you ever dyed your hair blond?
NAH! Blond does not suit my morena complexion.

4. have you ever eaten frogs' legs?
NEVER. But I heard it tastes like chicken. Husband has batrachophobia so i guess it's a NO-NO for me too.

5. have you ever received a present that you really hated?
YES. I received it in high school during our class Christmas Party. Why did I hate it? Because I found out that it belonged to another classmate who reportedly lost it. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. It was too bad for the giver to do just that.
6. Have you ever walked into a lamp post?
YES!I am an ever curious person that when something catches my eye, I have the tendency to stare at it, even if I am walking. I can still remember one time when hubby and I were walking on our way home when I wasn't paying attention because I saw a really cool car pass by. I bumped head on into this lamp post. OUCH! It really hurt. And I was pregnant with Sam then. I also bumped my tummy too. My poor baby... she was the one who absorbed all the shock. Thankfully though, both of us weren't hurt.

7. Have you ever cooked a meal by yourself for more than 15 people?
NOT YET. The most number of people that I think I have prepared a meal for was for ten. Maybe one of these days, once I am confident with my cooking, I can invite more friends. I find myself enjoying hosting get-togethers very much.

8. Have you ever fallen or stumbled in front of others?
STUMBLED - lots of times. See #6 for the reason why.

9. Have you ever done volunteer work?
YES. I was a volunteer in my college days. We would go to different communities especially in remote rural areas and extend our assistance to them. I also volunteered for coastal clean-ups and tree planting activities then. It really feels great to lend a hand and to touch other peoples' lives without receiving any compensation BUT the smiles on their faces and the words of gratitude.

10. Have you ever been on an accident?
YES. It was in February 14th, 1989 when I was run over by a car. Thankfully, I wasn't seriously hurt.. no broken bones or amnesia. But I did get a very big scar on my left leg because I had to be skin-grafted. Come to think of it, it will already be 20 years on Valentine's Day since my accident. It was that long already but the scar is still very visible. Guess you can say that I am living my second life.

I have added a 10th question to the list. Let's see who among you has been on one. Hopefully, you won't be on one or it was nothing serious.

So, HAVE YOU EVER DONE any of the 9? Feel free to grab this tag if you haven't done this yet. Then we can exhange notes. :D
