100 Things for 100th Post

on Friday, March 16, 2007

In the tradition that was first set by dave, I too decided that having survived in the blogosphere long enough for 100 posts, the occasion should be marked with a special posting.

I am glad to have survived this long. I didn't know at the beginning if I would find enough to write about. However, I have found both inspiration and friendship amongst the blogging community and as I have found so much of value in what you have to post, I hope too that you have found some value amidst my ramblings.

So on this special occassion, I propose to bore you with a list of 100 things about the topic I know best......myself. Do not try to read it all at once as you may be in danger of falling into a coma. You have been warned. Proceed with caution.......

I am
1. I am working as an environmental/conservation scientist.

I am just under 6 feet tall.

3. I am scared of heights.

I am Peranakan; also known as Baba-Nyonya (which is primarily a mix of Chinese and Malay). The culture is unique - taking elements of both but is closer to Chinese.

5. I am very good with young children. They seem to like me and I seem to be able to entertain them quite effortlessly but I really do not know why that is so.

I am the youngest in a family of four. Two brothers and one sister but the age differences are large (between my eldest brother and I is 18 years) so I felt like I grew up alone.

7. I am a Christian. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior when I was 13 years old even though I was brought up in a nominally Buddhist family. There was a lot of opposition to my decision and I was threatened with being disowned if I went ahead with being baptised. I did and I wasn’t disowned and today most of my family are Christians.

I am not a neat person nor am I a well-organised person. I try once in awhile but chaos soon takes control of whatever order I have tried to setup.

9. I am not good at being a strict disciplinarian. Young kids and even co-workers sense this and do try to take advantage. Never leave me alone with a classroom of kids if you don’t want a riot situation.

10. I am not a materialistic person. I believe in being content and not taking part in the rat race for more.

11. I am not a handyman or a gardener.

12. I am poor at corresponding with friends and family.

I like
13. I like vanilla ice cream so a trip to Baskin & Robbins is a waste of time for me. Boysenberry Ripple is a close second.

14. I like to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the X-files and Veronica Mars.

15. I like to play board games and card games that provide opportunity of interacting with people.

16. I like beachcombing and fossil hunting.

17. I like canal boating and canal history. Unfortunately, I have only traveled on the Oxford Canal, UK and the C&O canal in Washington, D.C.

I would like to
18. I would like to try gliding.

19. I would like to take up scuba diving.

I would like to visit the Tepuis of Venezuela

21. I would like to raft down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.

I would like to retire to Canada and run a B&B.

23. I would like more time to take up painting and writing.

24. I would like to swim with dolphins in the open ocean.

I love
25. I love my wife of 14 years. Who would have thought that after much traveling, I would end up marrying the girl next door? (well actually, the girl down the road.)

I love teaching. I am good at it and I really enjoy it. I like to be able to pass knowledge on and inspire young people.

27. I love nature but have a particular fondness for squirrels, otters and wolves.

I love traveling and learning about cultures and history.

29. I love my friends and family. They are the most important things in life.

I enjoy
30. I enjoy walking in the rain especially if I am in a funk.

31. I enjoy talks with friends that go deep into the night.

I enjoy long walks in the mountains and swimming in jungle streams.

33. I enjoy musicals. My favorite amongst more recent musicals is Phantom of the Opera but my all time favorite remains West Side Story.

I enjoy photography and also blogging.

35. I enjoy most music but especially jazz, folk and ethnic music.

I hate
I hate doctors with poor bedside manners or who do not care for the emotional wellbeing of their patients.

37. I hate dishonesty.

I really, really hate two-faced, corrupt politicians.

39. I hate being drunk. I do not like not being in control of my faculties. I am also one of those who actually become quiet and withdrawn when drunk. I think I have only been drunk less than five times in my life.

I hate multinational corporations. Well, actually, I just do not trust them. I think their motives and actions are contrary to the good of the general population and the world; especially pharmaceutical and agrochemical companies dealing with genetically modified organisms.

41. I hate arrogance and especially in politicians and scientists. I believe both should be serving mankind and arrogance gets in the way.

I hate blind, unthinking red tape and bureaucracy especially when it works against the weak and the defenseless.

43. I hate the words “if only…”. It caused me a lot of grief in my younger days that I was always not satisfied and I was always full of regret that I did not do things differently or better; when I was ruled by the words, “if only….”.

I hate the way Malaysian society has lost some of its unique strengths of family and community in its headlong rush for modernisation and progress and how it has picked up some of the vices of modern society.

45. I hate the increasing lack of willingness to accept responsibility for one’s action and the tendency to make excuses and to blame others.

I have
46. I have eaten rat liver once by accident. I don’t really want to talk about it.

I have had my appendix removed when I was eleven. I went in to hospital for observation but the symptoms disappeared the next morning. The doctor was about to discharge me but the Professor came by prodded me and said that “we might as well take it out.” I remember thinking that it was easy for him to say that but as it turned out, it was a good decision cause my appendix was close to rupturing.

48. I have a very good sense of direction and am very good at map reading but I can get lost in a shopping mall.

I have done volunteer work with Red Cross to help Vietnamese refugees to find their families.

50. I have also volunteered at different times to help take care of terminally ill cancer patients, recovering stroke patients and elderly shut-ins.

I have had the privilege of visiting and assisting a brave woman who was almost totally paralysed. She only could control and move her eyes and yet she finished her studies and wrote a book. What an inspiration!

52. I have had a man die in my car while I was trying to transport him to hospital.

53. I have a scar on my left middle finger which I got when as a toddler, I smashed a glass door with my hand. Apparently, I narrowly missed being decapitated by the falling glass.

I have never taken any illegal drugs and have only smoked a cigarette once.

55. I have appeared on CNN, BBC, ABC (Australia) and Al-Jazeera. I was being interviewed with regards to my work. My 15 seconds in the spotlight!

I have done whitewater rafting in New Zealand and in Canada. I would do this again and again whenever I have the opportunity.

57. I have taken part in the Terry Fox Run twice and really should start doing it again.

I have worked as kitchen staff in a hotel in the Lake District in the UK. Being a small family run hotel, duties include singing around the ol’ piano in the evening. It was here that I picked up a Scottish accent from a co-worker.

59. I have visited every continent except South America and Antartica. That’s not the same as having traveled extensively in all those continents. I have lived in three countries and visited 19 others.

I have an ear for music (so I am told) and can play a tune on piano after hearing it once but have been too lazy to really learn how to play properly.

61. I have a collection of soft toys which were all given to me by friends over the years. My first one was Ollie “Nuna-Nanook” of the North which is a penguin.

I can
I can swim and enjoy almost any form of water activity.

63. I can cook reasonably well.

I can speak and write in English and Malay.

65. I can draw cartoons reasonably well and have won a University-wide competition for funniest cartoon

I used to
I used to play basketball and chess at school level competitions.

67. I used to be in the school debating team. When I was young I really enjoyed debating and taking the contrary view.

I used to sing in both the school and church choirs but I really have a problem keeping to my part.

69. I used to have the entire collection of Peanuts by Charles Schultz, the complete collection of James Herriot books and the complete set of Douglas Adam’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series. Unfortunately, while I was studying abroad, my mother allowed my cousins to take the books away and I never saw them again.

I used to have a phobia of eating chicken which was so strong that I would throw up if I ate it. Today I can eat chicken but surprise, surprise, it is still not a favorite.

71. I used to have a progressive back problem (scoliosis) but received healing from God during a prayer session and I haven’t had the problem since and it’s been more than 7 years.

I used to suffer from asthma and eczema but swimming helped to reduce the frequency of the attacks and today it is not a problem.

I once
73. I once caught Scarlet Fever and I found out only a day after donating blood. I had to call the hospital to get rid of my blood as it was tainted.

I once met and shook hands with Brian Mulrooney when he was Prime Minister of Canada but this is not something that I am particularly proud of.

75. I once had breakfast with the entire Valencia Football team but not really being a soccer fan, I was oblivious to this until after the fact. Some of my friends are furious that I did not ask them for autographs.

I once backpacked through Europe for a month and visited 8 countries in that time. One of the best things I ever did.

77. I once was extremely skinny. Hard to believe today but I still have photographic evidence!

I once suffered from a serious depression that lasted a year but I felt its tendrils for a long time after. Once again, it was God that brought healing. Even today though, there is a comforting familiarity to being in a funk.

79. I once learnt how to canoe and kayak properly including the eskimo roll but its been awhile. I wonder if I can still do it.

80. I
once took up jazz dancing too but I’ve put on weight since then.

81. I once went on a lightning 1,500 km tour of Ontario in 6 days as a pillon rider on a motorbike. This was despite the fact that I was suffering from lower back pain at the time. I chose to bear the pain than miss out on the trip.

I once was mistaken to be a native American and invited to attend an Algonquin pow-wow.

I did
83. I did my first degree in Biochemistry at the University of London.

84. I did my Masters in Microbiology at the National University of Malaysia. My project had to do with developing a rapid method to test whether a water source was polluted by sewage and feces. The method I help develop was used in rural communities in South Africa, Chile and in some Native Indian Reservations in Canada.

85. I did my doctorate in Environmental Microbiology at the University of Ottawa on an International Development and Research Centre scholarship.

I won a consolation award from the international Nehru Awards for a story I wrote about the end of childhood while I was in school.

87. I was severely reprimanded by my headmaster for submitting a poem about the end of childhood to the school magazine. He disapproved of the way I portrayed the school in the poem. That was the last time I wrote poems until this year.

I carry out public speaking and public presentations very often but despite being good at it, I am really an introvert and do not enjoy doing it.

89. I regret not learning Mandarin and one musical instrument when I was younger.

I drive 4WD’s at work but my own car is a Honda City 1.5 L and my dream car is the modest but cool Volkswagon Golf Convertible.

91. I procrastinate.

I generally enjoy sad stories more than happy ones. One of my favorite writers in this respect is Maxim Gorky.

93. I also enjoy science fiction and my favorite authors are Ray Bradbury and Arthur C. Clarke.

I found coming out with 100 things about myself to be incredibly difficult.

95. My favorite color is aquamarine.

My favorite semi-precious stone is tourmaline.

97. My favorite computer game is Sid Meier’s Civilization IV.

My favorite alcoholic drink is lager, cider, white wine, red wine and coffee liquers in that order. I rarely drink though, maybe twice a month.

99. My favorite spectator sports are rugby union and ice hockey. I really enjoy the rugby sevens version of the game too.

100. My friends call me a walking encyclopedia.


Jocelyn said...

Congratulations on the 100 posts! I love this list; you should add it to your profile, as it gives everyone a great overview of who you are.

And if there's any online footage of your news-station interviews, could you do a post with them? I'd love to see your 15 minutes/seconds/nanoseconds of fame.

Janice Thomson said...

Wow...what an honor to have a bit of insight into 2 such unique and talented individuals like Dave and yourself. In the end we are all really the same with our thoughts and dreams and making our way through the world in as friendly and helpful a manner as we can (though sad to say many have yet to know this). It is people like you and Dave who bring back our faith in humanity and who stand as shining examples of goodness.

Dave said...

CONGRATULATIONS LGS!!! I must say that you have quite the impressive 100! Al-Jazeera huh?!? I must admit that most of us only accomplish a small fraction of what you have done over the years. :-)

Proxima said...

Yeah! I also love playing games that bring people together, like "Settlers of Catan" (original, in card version)

Congratulations on 14 years with Mrs. Squirrel!

I think we all miss and hate the lack of family and community in modern day society.

I also get lost in shopping malls because there are no distinctive trees to help me to find my way.

Molly said...

Rat liver,huh? I wouldn't want to talk about it either! How long before Mrs. Squirrel let you kiss her after that little adventure?? I've been river rafting in Montana---fun---of course I was much younger then....What a chequered life you've led!

Canada said...

Awesome list, LGS. Scuba diving is amazing, and I would highly recommend it (not that I've done any lately). Hubby and I would love to retire to Stratford and open a B&B, but I think it should stand for Bed and Brunch - no early mornings! Even though I'm Canadian, I hate hockey (shhh, don't tell anyone!!). And the picture - is it Parliament Hill on Canada Day?

Congratulations on 100 posts. I'll look forward to the next 100 and beyond.

Becky Wolfe said...

Great 100 list. I'm already starting to brew mine, still more than a month of posts away :) If you retire to Canada, I hope British Columbia is your first choice for the B&B - you'd make a great living with a B&B in the Okanagan. (southern BC)

When swimming in jungle streams do you ever encounter jungle snakes? Ahh!

You have done many amazing things. I thoroughly enjoyed your list!!

patterns of ink said...

I'm impressed. That is very hard to do. I don't know when I hit 100, but I'm not sure I could have done that. I am very surprised by what we have in common.
2,6 (until I was 12), 7,8,10,11 (the handy part), 23,26,33,48,54,68,69 (I still have six CB paperbacks from the 60's. The high school I oversee is rehearsing "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" right now for this May.)77, etc.
Thank you for doing this, and congrats on 100!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Thanks for the encouraging words. Did you do one of these? I'd like to read it.

After reading your comment, I did a search for the footage but didn't find any but I might do a post on it nonetheless cause the truth must be told, it ain't as much fun as it may seem. :)

Wow, what wonderful compliments. I fear that if you met us in person, you'd find that the "shining examples of goodness" are not so much Knights in shining armour as we are the Tinman from Wizard of Oz with rust problems! (I don't presume to speak for Sir dave, of course). And if I may just return a compliment, I believe you have a special and rare quiet courage with which you are able to weather the worst of life storms. So I would say that YOU are an example for us all.

thanks but you are too generous. We all have our interests and strengths. I realise I have been fortunate especially with having had opportunities to travel, However, I desperately envy those like you who are skilled with your hands, amongst other things. How I wish I could create something beautiful with my hands!

As for, Al-Jazeera, hah! Not the most fun experience. I'll explain in a post coming up soon. (did you know that you reached your 100th post 1.5 months faster than me. How do you do it?)

I've seen "Settlers of Catan" on sale here and have been wondering about it. Now with your endorsement, I feel confident to go buy it.

I can get totally lost in a shopping mall. My friends tease me saying I navigate by the sun - shopping mall is sans soliel.

It tasted like chicken. NoT! I joke. Now this "chequered life" business, isn't that what they say about villians. You know, as when they say "You've lived a chequered life, Bugsy. Now its time to pay the piper!" lol.

Bed and Brunch! What a great idea! Love it. Where's Stratford? There's one in U.K. or are you refering to somewhere in Canada? Having seen pics of your house, your B&B would be an awesome experience.

Your secret about hockey is safe with me and everyone else who reads these comments. I only watch it for the fights! haha. And to your question, the photo is indeed the Peace Tower on Canada Day. I enjoyed being present for three Canada Day's and they were all wonderful. (oh, finally, what's all this about a minivan?)

Looking forward to your 100 list. I was thinking of a B&B in Vancouver Island. 'fraid I don't know much about the Okanagen Valley.

Funny thing is that in all the years of jungle trekking, I've only encountered snakes on three occasions whereas, in the house I grew up in, I had about five encounters and close ones too.

Wow, I am impressed too by our similarities. I guess, if we take the trouble to know each other, we begin to realise we are more alike than different. (Umm, a little surprised that you came from a Buddhist family - number 7) lol. :))

JR's Thumbprints said...

Congratualtions on hitting the triple digits. I just passed my 300th posts unnoticed. Keep up the good writing!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

What a fascinating look into you! I enjoyed it far toomuch to do it in short bites, as you suggested.

I also had my appendix out at age 11. While perusing my post list to see when it was, (Post Operative, 12/20,06) so I could tell you, I noticed that I have done 199 posts since mid-June, when I timidly began to blog. I guess I should consider doing something to celebrate, as you have.

I would ask you a million questions about so many of the things on your list if there was time and space.

Thanks for sharing so generously.

Cheryl said...

What a great list and, I can tell it took a lot of effort. Much more comprehensive than mine. It was interesting to learn about you and your accomplishments.

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Congrats on your 300. Wow. I'd be lucky to last that long. The tales that you tell are ....well, unimaginable for many of us. All the best with your writing.

You started in mid-June?!?! I assumed you are a multiyear veteran cause your posts seem to be written with such an effortless style, like it rolls easily off your fingertips. I remember reading your appendix post. It stirred quite a response from your readers.

Thanks for the compliments. I looked at how you and dave did it and learnt a few things and I did sort of plan it over a month, spending a few minutes every day to add one or two lines. So, what are you going to do for your 200th post, the student asks the teacher. :))

Oklahoma Squirrel said...

I had a sneeking suspition you were a very interesting squirrel but I had no idea! What an interesting life you have led!

Open Grove Claudia said...

Hi five Squirrelly! We have sooo much in common - it's a little unbelievable. (Biochemistry, UC Berkeley, now how weird is that.)

I appreciate your honesty! And I'm psyched to have met you!

Odat said...

Wow...What a great thing to do...Congrats on your 100th post and it was fun learning so much about you!!! Thanks so much for sharing...I, too, am a strict vanilla ice cream person!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

OK squirrel,
Surely all squirrels are interesting. (and just so the others aren't offended....the others are interesting too). lol.

I am fascinated by your life journey.

Well, fellow biochemist, are you still employed in a related field? I am wondering now what else we have in common.

vanilla lovers are peaceful folk. They are not riled up by inflammatory flavors. Vanilla forever!!! Peace.

geewits said...

Congrats! That was a great post. My first thought was "How do you know when you've had 100 posts?" It took a few minutes, but I figured it out. My second thought was to tell you to give yourself 100 pats on the back, but after reading your 100 things, that seems like something you wouldn't do. So for all of your considerable achievements, I give you 100 imaginary pats on the back!

Josie said...

LGS, I made it all the way through your list, and did not fall into a coma. Quite the contrary, I think you are an amazingly interesting, accomplished and multi-faceted person.

I too like jazz and hate multinational corporations. They answer only to their shareholders, in fact they are legally bound to answer only to their shareholders.

You know, each item on your list is something you could do a post about. There you go, the next 100 posts!

If you're scared of heights, how can you even contemplate taking up gliding? You're a brave soul!


Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Thanks for the kind words and the imaginary pats. I don't know the fuss about achievements, I think I've just been blessed and had opportunities. I am grateful for that.

Funny thing about heights. If I am on a bridge, I look down and see people like ants and I break into cold sweat. But when I am high in the air in a plane or helicopter, I look out and there is no sense of scale, it is like looking at images on a tv screen and somehow I am not afraid. Hence, I think I would enjoy a glider but I would be petrified on a roller coaster. Strange, huh?

etain_lavena said...

WOWI>......WOWI....Squirrel...well done on nr 100 and well done for being a very kewl human...I mean squirrel:)
Hope that your next 100 post gives you as much pleasure writing them as they give us reading them.

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Thank you. Such nice words of encouragement. kewl skwerl thanks you.

CSL said...

Congratulations, it's a fun addicition isn't it? You might consider putting the 100 things about you as a link in your sidebar, where it will be avaiable. I did that, and it's a fun reminder to me of what struck at that moment to list. I love the 100 lists because I like seeing where someone is similar and where they are different from me, and enjoying the fact that we have a connection in spite of the differences. Thanks for posting yours.

Ellie said...

Congrats on your 100th post. Sorry I missed it. I read through your list. I sat here thinking how much you have lived and experienced compared to so many, many people. I know you are grateful for each experience you have had, it is great that you are able to share those experiences with your readers. A very "colorful" post, the background was in aquamarine, no? :)

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Variety is the spice of life. We can find differences interesting and learn from each other new things or new ways of looking at things as long as we practice respect and humility. Let's celebrate the similarities but let's also celebrate the differences.

Thanks for the kind words. Am glad you got to read this post. Aquamarine is slightly lighter and more translucent than the post background but any kind of green is good.

nancycle said...

Oh! How exciting!

OK, things that stood out for me the most on this mad panic to get out of the house:

1. rat liver?! It's ok, I know, I know, you don't want to talk about it.

BUT if you DID, that would be ok with me.


2. Terry Fox run - wow, you'd be my neighbour eh?

3. Soft toy collection "Ahhhhhh Ollie".

4. 14 years of LOVE


...Be back when time isn't pressing!

Top cat said...

What a great list LGS.
I enjoyed reading these 100 things about you and believe it or not I made it completely through the list without falling asleep or into a coma.
Thanks for sharing, nice to know you better.

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Good to hear from your chirpy self.
1) rat liver ....still don't want to talk about it .....yet. Maybe someday soon.
2)Terry Fox Run is also carried out in Malaysia and I did the two runs here after a friend died of cancer.
3) Yes soft toy (not blushing)
4) 14 years of LOVE (blushing)
See you soon when you have more time.

Thanks. It's a pleasure knowing you too.
