About Me

I have a passion for travel and writing, hence this blog. I am a complete foodie and the biggest picture whore that you’ll ever find. Welcome to my world.

10 Random Facts About Me:

1) I eat kangaroo.

My mother put me onto it.

Apparently it is a good meat because it has the highest known source of the healthy fat CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) CLA. In trials, CLA has been shown to possess potential anti-carcinogenic and anti-diabetes properties, in addition to reducing obesity and atherosclerosis (high blood pressure), so everybody get your kangaroooooo! The first time I ate Kangaroo I didn’t even know what it was. My mother just gave it to me in a stew. My father loves it so much that he tried to put me off it so that he could snatch my plate because I had the last bit.

2) I wanted to be fat

Growing up I always wanted to be fat so I that I could have fat ankles and wear leggings with trainers and not look like BigFoot. I thought if I got fat my ankles would get bigger too. Plus the fat girls always looked better than the skinny ones. As I got bigger my ankles never did, so I figure its best to revert to skinny.

3) I was the only black girl in my school from the age of 5 to 12.

Just before the Christmas Holidays when I was about 8 we were at the lunch table and a little white girl asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I can’t remember what I said, but I remember her response,

“Why don’t you ask Father Christmas for some white crayons so that you can colour yourself in white?”

4) I bought an X Box, just so I could play one section one one game…

The puzzle bit on the Mortal Kombat Deception. I play it until the different coloured blocks all blur into the same colour. It was the only game I owned until my friend felt sorry for me and gave me Catwoman. To this day I haven’t even opened the Catwoman box.

5) I like my own company

A lot of the time I like just being alone which is why I often don’t answer the phone. I’m not avoiding anyone I just don’t want to sit on the phone for hours yakking til my jaw hurts. I wasn’t always this way though… I used to be able to do a 12 hour telephone marathon no problems.

6) I once pretended to be a mechanic

I once told this guy that I fancied that I could fix his car just so that I could see him. My friend told me that I was crazy but I was determined… I really went to “fix the car” and didn’t have a clue. Luckily when I went he told me the problem was with the window, so I could feign ignorance. I told him that I only dealt with engines… hahaha!

7) I used to play the piano and the recorder

 

icon cool About Me I am the kid of an antiques dealer

My childhood was spent traipsing around antiques fairs, auctions and car boot sales. I hate the sight of a thermos flask now.

9) My real parents are Brazilian

Ok this is a lie… I’m clutching at straws, but on the real I have no pictures of me as a newborn. Isn’t that weird? When I asked my mother why this wass she gave me a dirty look and told me to, “go and find your real parents then.”

10) I love me a pretty boy.

They make my knees weak.
