I'd also like to award these last two cute little "pet" awards to the ladies, namely Janice, Jean, Marzie, Emila, Bobo, Ratu, Ann, Sugar Queen Dreams, Mauniejames, DiamondSapphire and Lady Jave and of course anyone I missed is more than welcome to take one or two too!

Meme Time!

Meme One

LJ wanted to know what’s on my handphone. What else would I have but a picture of my little girl!! It's quite an old picture but I like it very much. In fact the phone is quite old too but I just haven't found one I really like...doesn't help to be fickle I guess LOL

Meme Two

LJ & Spiff recently tagged me with the Two things About you meme and well here are my two cents:

Two Names I go by - Adrian and Genie King
Two things I am wearing right now - Glasses and Shorts
Two things I want (or have) in a relationship - Good Conversation and Laughter (agree with ya LJ_
Two things I like to do - Playing with my daughter and watching TV
Two thing I want very badly in this moment - To sleep (but have to do this meme first) and a glass of water
Two things I did last night - Watch TV and Sleep (yeahI lead a normal life sometimes)
Two thing I ate today - Nasi Lemak and Star Fruit
Two person I last spoke to - My Wife and My daughter
Two things I am doing tomorrow - Going to work and look for a course to take
Two favourite days of the week - Saturday & Sunday (Doh the weekend!!)
Two favourite holidays- Christmas and New Year
Two favourite beverages - Coffee & Neslo (Milo with a dash of Nescafe)
Two things about me that you may not have known - I don't like to eat fish & I collect Santa Claus figurines
Two jobs that I have had in my life - Been at the same office for 20 years (does that count as two jobs)
Two Movies I would watch over and over - It's a Wonderful Life and Star Wars and Lord Of the Rings (Yeah I can count so whats it to ya? LOL)

Two of my favourite food - Anything spicy and Nehi Parapu LOL (Okay that is lentils with ghee...very yummy combination that is served only on Fridays at Indian restaurants)
Two places I would rather be right now - Europe and and anywhere that has snow right now!
Two persons I'm tagging Janice and Jean. If you've done it it;s okay with me!

Meme Three

LJ really had my number cause this is the third tag she left me before running off to Singapore. Just you wait LJ! LOL It's the 8 random facts about me (like as if anyone wants to know). but here goes nothing:

Like LJ, I also started wearing glasses since I was a a youngling, around 11 if I remember correctly;
I wanted to be either in the Army or an Actor when I was growing up;
I am scared of flying insects if you must know...a childhood phobia;
I hate to eat fish unless it's been processed into other products like crackers and balls and stuff;
I love the smell of rain and freshly cut grass;
I would rather listen than talk;
I am addicted to blogging

Here are the rules if you want to participate:
Link to your tagger and post these rules.
List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
Tag eight people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
I'm not gonna tag anyone but feel free to tackle this one if you like and let me know if you do! :) And that number 8...I don't play by the rules all the time LOL

Memes Four and Five

Marzie tagged me with this one...well two but I've done one already. It's the Sorting Hat Test to determine which Hogwarts house I belong to. I ended up in Gryffindor because I must be a god guy LOL.

She tagged me on this fairly simple meme, which I found rather interesting! Here's how it works: Use the first letter of your name to answer each question. Must be places, names … nothing made up. You can’t use your own name for the boy/girl’s name question. If you get stuck, skip to the next one.
1. Famous Singer: Aretha Franklin
2. Four Letter Word: Abba
3. Street: Alamanda
4. Colour: Magenta (oops...forgot to erase that) Amber
5. Gifts/Present: Aeroplane Kit
6. Vehicle: Audi
7. Things in Souvenir Shop: Ashtray
8. Boy Name: Andrew
9. Girl Name: Amoreena (my best friend wants to name his child after the girl in the Elton John song of the same name)
10. Movie title: A bridge too Far
11. Drink: Anchor beer
12. Occupation: Architect
13. Celebrity: Ashton Kutchner
14. Magazine: Auto
15. U.S. City: Antioch
16. Pro Sports: Archery
17. Fruit: Apple
18. Reason for Being Late to work: A shomach ache
19. Something you throw away: Ash
20. Something you shout: Assho...oops...Alakazam! LOL

Again I'm not tagging anyone so feel free to help yourselves to this nice meme!
