Another Facts About Mariposa

So if I am to live as if it is my last, I have to do all memes/ tags in real time...right? So here are two more memes/ tags which I commit myself to do within this week.

The first one is a tag I promised WendyB to do within the week...

Here are list of questions which I will attempt to answer or ignore...LOL

Do your closest friends have any nicknames for you?
Yup!

Friends and workmates call me Si (pronounce as Sai...)
Family and relatives call me Day...it's an affectionate label fo girls/ women in our local dialect!
My younger brother and cousins call me Ate...
Some, calls me honey...baby and sweetie! :P (Will that count too?!)

What would your ex-(boyfriend) say about you in one sentence?

She is sweet affectionate smart complicated woman!

What is the greatest achievement of your life so far?

To have lived this far!

How should people think of sex in this, the 21st century?

That it is an art...a very special way of expressing oneself!

Where would you live if anywhere was possible?

There is no place like home...but honestly, place is never an issue...it is always on with whom I'm living with.

Is there a sex toy that you would endorse?

Hahaha, I think I would start first with explaing what are the different body parts and its uses before I go that far!

Is there a religion that's fulfilling for you and/or the masses?

Religion, philosopies, belief system, or whatever we call them is a matter of choice...and yes, I have found some quite fulfilling for me...but to say they'll all work for all people would be too hypocrite of me...

What inspires awe in your life's experience?

That I am able to live one day at a time...finding meaning in them and gaining more strength to face yet another day...despite and inspite the odds!

What was/is your best pick-up line?

Or pick-up smile?

What and when is the most potent emotion you've ever experienced and why?

Being loved...being cared...and I get that from different people everyday!

On what occasions do you act self-absorbed or just plain selfish?

I believe it is only in the corporate setting that I get to be self-absorbed but in a good way...that is what I'm supposed to do...to bring continuous improvement! :P

If someone assigned you a quest, or if you decided your own, what would you be looking to find?

To know what happened to the civilization in Machu Picchu?!

If you had to choose between them, would you live in Hollywood, Washington D.C. or New York, and why?

Can I choose Miami?! Because right now, that is my next option next to home.

But if I'm left only those options...NY might do it I guess. Why? BEcause it's a place where Sex in the city is not just a promise but a lifestyle! (Where the hell did I get that line! LOL)

Who or what makes you feel "whole”?

Will it be funny to say my shoes?! LOL Seriously, what makes me whole are the people I care.

Where is your greatest opportunity for change?

In bed? LOL

What do you consider to be the greatest opportunity for humankind?

To live in peace and harmony!

What surprises you about getting older?

That we can age gracefully...glows more with wisdom!

What or who makes you feel younger or rejuvenated?

Hahaha...ACE makes me feel young and rejuvenated!

Where or when do you feel most alone?

When I sleep...before I close my eyes...the thought that I might not wake up the next day to kiss my loved one good morning...so that when I happen to sleep with somebody, I always tell them to hug me to sleep.

Where or how is society most ripe for change?

Whenever they are ready for it and decided for it.

Do you think of yourself as attractive to the opposite sex?

I think I'm one hell-of-a-woman in a good way as most people say...so I guess YES!

When or where do you feel the most free?

Back when I drive...I feel most free when I'm overspeeding...

Now, I feel most free when I'm blogging!

Great transition huh?! LOL

What is the greatest memory of your life to date?

They will live within the confines of my dream... :P

Where and when did you find out who you really are?

I'm still trying to...

If someone told you when and where you would die, what would you do immediately after being told?

Nothing. I will continue living...as I mentioned in my previous posts, I'm tying to live each day as if it is my last.

What's your favorite libation (a drink offered to a god)?

This is hard...maybe tequila and champagne!

What "life philosophies" have you adopted since you've become an adult?

Learn as if you're going to live forever...live as if it's your last.

How would you like to be remembered?

As Mariposa...a girl who loves butterfly and had been one! A girl who flutters around people...very colorful...her life may be as short as that of a butterfly...and no one would noticed it...because she was able to pass on things that will immortalize her ways of life.
I will stop here before I get overly dramatic!


And here is another tag from Serena...

These are only 5 questions...and they're abit easier than the previous one.

1. Name one thing you do everyday.

Drinking coffee!

2. Name two things you wish you could learn.

To learn to swim...I live in an island and I can't swim...what a shame!
Learn to write/ read and speak Japanese, so my grandma's soul can finally rest in peace...

3. Name three things that remind you of your childhood.

Cotton candy
Lollipops
Watermelon

4. Name four things you love to eat but rarely do.

Sushi and Sahimi (They're expensive and I have no time to dine out...and I have no time to make them at home!)
Dinuguan (I don't know what it's called in English...but most foreigners find it gross anyway. It is made of pork and some pig internals and blood...sound gross I know, but it's delicous!)
Tita Josie's fruit cake!
Watermelon! (They're seasonal!)

5. Name five things/people that make you feel good.

(Here they are in no particular order...)

Hello Mariposa,

Thanks for doing the tag. I too love coffee but I try not to drink everyday. :)

You've got the Shelfari too! Easier to check on what each friend or bloggers read by seeing their shelf, eh?

As for LASIK, not everyone would opt for surgery albeit that no blood or cutting up is involved even though they can afford it. Hahaha...I for one have not work these type of courage up to go for LASIK. :D
