7 things that you probably don't know about me--a Meme.
I received a tag from Digital Learning a few days ago to share 7 things about me. At first I thought I might be too busy to do this but being a keen blogger, I just couldn't help but join in. So here it goes:
1. I was born in Malaysia. I attended primary and secondary schools in Malaysia. My dad was a principal in a chinese medium primary school and my siblings and I went to his school. After I finished primary school, I went to a secondary school that used English as a medium of instruction. Because of this, I became bilingual. I can speak and write both Mandarin and English but I tend to be more proficient in English. While in high school, I was taught by VSA teachers from USA, Australia and New Zealand, as well as some Malaysian teachers depending on the subjects that I was doing.
2. When I was 18, I came to New Zealand to attend university. I was quite a scholar because I graduated with three degrees from the University of Auckland: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Town Planning and Master of Arts majoring in History.
3. While at university, I had several jobs in the summer holidays in order to support myself. The most memorable job was being a waitress in a chinese restaurant, where I learned to interact with the public and at one point, I even appeared in a TV commercial for a credit card company.
