CHEERS to my One Score and Four Years

          At 8 pm of October 21,1990, from the sweat, blood and pain that could hardly be endured, my mother gave  birth to the person whose life story will now unfold. I am none other than this person. I am very blessed to have loving parents who made possible of my existence in this world and to be able to experience and witness what life has to offer. It’s 24 years now and still riding on the wheels of life. WOHOOOO!

          So, if you are really curious about my life , here are 24 snippets and glimpses about me 🙂

1. I want my name to remain a mystery, though some knew. I’m glad if you call me by my name because the sweetest sound you hear in your lifetime is your name. If you know my name, you are special to me and it’s no longer a mystery for you.

2. Sometimes I can’t hear very well. That was why I misheard the lyrics of a song which I sang aloud. What a shame! Haha!
 3. “Chasing Potatoes” was part of the lyrics that I misheard, and since I find the phrase cute and interesting, I used it as my social media name.
4. But when stores like coffee shops ask for names, I give them the name of Ginger. Ginger  because it’s rhyme with my real name.(Opps, a clue for my real name)

 5. I used to believe that I am a left brainer person because I love numbers.
6. But sadly I found out that right brainer persons are usually happier and more cheerful. I’m now exploring my right brain’s potential, the creative side through blogging, photography, etc.

 7.  I am like Katniss Everdeen, “I am not good in making friends.”
8. I have problems with conversing with other people. AWKWARD!

 10. When I travel, I don’t like to wear boring outfits because outfits have a big impact in pictures.
11. Nice outfits add life in photography and that’s why my posts in this blog reflect my interest in outfits.

 12. I think I am fat. REALLY. Sigh 😦
13. I love to watch mind provoking movies.
14. I hate watching movies without subtitles. It’s because I want to understand every small detail in the movie.

16. I am scared of not being in control.

 19. I don’t like the feeling of losing but if I lose, I can still accept it with all my heart.

21. I also believe in the saying “DARE TO FAIL”. Ironic right?
22. I love adventures. OH Definitely!!!

 23. I love dogs because dogs are AW-AWmazing! 😉
24. Lastly, to those who read this, welcome to my life. Wink! 😉

Chasing Potatoes

Why Chasing Potatoes? I’m Chasing Potatoes. I chase time and opportunities because just like round potatoes they roll and get lost. I chase them to store memories to last a lifetime. I make haste, running after them, fearful that they might be gone. That’s why I go places on land or in water.My story tells about the journey of chasing time and saying yes to wonderful opportunities.
