So, it’s been a long day at work… Fun times, configuring user accounts and setting customers up. I s’pose it makes a living and fills the old wallet though. (On that note, mine is ripping *sadfase*) Anyhow, watching anime, planning life, researching my next purchase… browsing facebook and…
Another boring quiz to do! Figured I’d share.
Completely unrelated, but a nice picture. Also kinda indicates what I do when I'm blogging. Listen to music on stupidly good headphones.
Personally, I don’t consider myself to be all that asian, apart from the otaku bit. I’m more of an Overclocker rather than anything else. I do enjoy a bit of the good ‘ole singlish to annoy my more western friends though. For reference, both my parents are Malay, me being born in Australia. The earlier years of my life were pretty asian though. Super-strict parents, high expectations, lots of study, and the whole “YOU MUST PLAY THE PIANO!” Part of things. Oh, fun times.

HOW ASIAN ARE YOU?
If you can survive to more than 60%, you’re pretty far up along the percentile rankings. Yeah, that’s like a D-/F borderline, but hell, this isn’t about getting as much as possible. It’s about discovering your inner Asian self. And no, you don’t need to get at least a 90%, because you parents won’t be seeing the score and this won’t be counted towards or against your grades. (Note: I don’t endorse sending this to everyone. I also dislike chain things, but I find the odd one remotely interesting and I remember things about my self that keep me remembering why I do what I do.)

Well, I’m fairly asian. Meh. It shows how much living in Australia can change people. Very nice place to live, but it changes you quite a lot. As does time. Oh well. Now all I have to do is persuade my workmates to stop trying to set me up…
