If not, then I guess rice would always work.
I have a pretty fast metabolism, and I exercise. And it's actually good to stuff yourself constantly throughout the day rather than 3 big fat meals. I also tend to lose weight more easily than gain weight...I've already lost about 2 pounds since school started. =(

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present our 3rd interviewee --
1. What is your real-life occupation? What do you do for a living?
My background is in hotel management. After years of climbing the corporate ladder and managing people I really got burned out and totally lost passion for my job over a year ago. After reassessing my career direction, I’d decided to take a break from management and do something fun that would satisfy my love of travelling. I’m presently a Consultant. I travel all over the country/world to evaluate hotels and collect data. It’s travelled intensive, but it’s an eye-opening experience to visit places that I don’t think I would ever get to see on my own.
2. What do you do as past-time, other than visiting spcnet?
I like to read or watch Chinese/Korean series online whenever I have the time on the road. On the weekend, I spend time with my loved ones and fly. Flying is a hobby that I picked up after a friend took me for a spin on the air and gave me a couple of flying lessons. I’ve been hooked every since, and I'm prepping to do my first solo trip soon. Darn it, just thinking about it makes me sick to my stomach. *so nervous*
3. Why did you initially join SPCNET? What about SPCNET makes you stay?
I fumbled onto SPCNET while looking for information on some Korean drama. I signed up in October 2004, but did not actively post anything until exactly one year later. I honestly didn’t realize there were other threads beyond the Series/Actors/Actresses sections. *oops*
I truly like this community and the people here. People always say don’t invest too much of yourself online, and I agree with this view to a certain extend. The majority of the people here are long-term members and everyone pretty much sees each other and corresponds with one another on a daily or weekly basis, thus, there is a sense of familiarity and a sense of connection/identification among the lot of us. Even if we don’t know each other personally, but through the years, we get a glimpse of the members’ personalities through their posts. I’m not sure if others feel the same way that I do.
4. Who is your favorite male and female SPCNET member?
Male: In no particular order
oGaKiRA – hehehee…since he isn’t here, I don’t feel too bad exposing his true color. Whatever you think of OG, it’s probably true. Though surprisingly, he is extremely sensible, loyal, intelligent, and traditional.
Candide – I forgive potbelly for calling me a “butch, hairy, feminiazi.” Intelligence is a trait that I admire in people, even if it comes from someone who sounds like a ‘smart alec’ most of the time.
Ceddie – What can I say about Spcnet’s own comedian? How can we not like someone who always spreads joy and laughter? Though, I do wonder what’s underneath that funny facade of yours.
PJ – One of the most down-to-earth and humble people that I have met.
Levi – My sense of humor is very similar to that of Lev. If I can punk one person, it would definitely be him, because I can be ruthlessly cruel without worrying about hurting his feeling.
And of course a shout out to the regulars like Rennie, Lunie, Foxie, War, Kennie, Han, Yittz, KJ, Mr.P….
Female: In no particular order
Sparky & GuGu – I wub these two nutcases.
Jennie/Kay – One of the most colorful personalities on Spcnet – gotta love reading between all the **** %@#% *** in her posts.
Jadie – We tend to "agree" with each other a lot. I can relate and identify with many of her views. It also seems that she's got a good head on her shoulders for her age.
Bunny/Renna/Xiani – my spam bosom buddies
Essie – I’m still waiting patiently for that invitation to your club, granny.
Pandie – I like her debating style. From observations, she’s not afraid of admitting wrong or acknowledging someone else’s valid points. It shows that she actually reads and processes the opponent’s point of views and not just aggressively argues for the sake of winning (even though she hates to lose). I admire this rare trait, because debating shouldn’t be about having the last word when it’s so much more rewarding if one can actually learn something from the experience.
5. Many of us here are overseas Asians and thus have a bit of a bicultural identity. Do you fit this description? If so, which culture do you identify more with?
I'm proud to be Vietnamese, but I'm also a product of the West. My thoughts and values are shaped of western ideals.
6. Are you satisfied with your appearance? What do you consider your best physical feature? Least?
I have always been comfortable in my own skin. Honestly, I’m not in any way good looking or anything near the ideals, but I’m comfortable with whom I am and I work with what I have.
My smile gets the most compliments, but the twin come very close to getting first place. Alright, if there is a miracle, then I’d like to be a couple of inches taller, so I don’t have to ever wear heels again.
7. Have you had your heart broken? How did you cope? Or were you the one breaking hearts?
I’ve been on both sides of the spectrum, and I don’t enjoy either scenario. Pain and heartache exist whether you’re the dumper or the dumpee, because when something doesn't work out then there is a sense of loss, since we tend to have high hope entering the relationship. I try to learn from the lessons and then allow time to perform its healing magic.
8. Are you leaving because you're getting married? Are you coming back?
Do people usually leave after they get married? It’s weird that this is the conclusion that many people came upon after I mentioned that I was going to retire from Spcnet soon. LOL. Since there are quite a few rumors floating around already, let’s this be one of Spcnet’s unsolved mysteries. But rest assure that I'm not marrying potbelly. As for the latter question, I’m not sure. I don’t believe in “never,” so I can’t answer this question with absolute certainty.
9. What is the most expensive luxury item you have ever bought?
The word “expensive” jumps out at me while reading this question and I immediately thought of “house.” LOL. I just finished building my house not too long ago, and am still shopping for home decors. Unfortunately, there are many luxury items that I can’t afford right now…and probably can’t afford em’ for a very long time.
10. If you can be the image designer for one member, who will you pick and how will you dress him/her up to show off his/her unique character? You may also use other props and accessories.
Alright, I hope TC will be a good sport and allow me to pick on him a little bit.
As we all know, TC is pretty straight up conservative and a traditional guy. And whenever I think of “conservative” and “traditional,” the words associated are “old” and “dated.” Thus, I wonder what his real life image is like.
Personally, my ideal image of a man is someone who looks neither too dressy nor overly casual. An assemblage of clothing/style and demeanor that shows he has good taste but is not too fussy. One can look very polished in an old jean and a sport jacket, but the goal is to be well put together and not really dressed up (something that's appropriate for both daytime and nighttime). At the same time, you do not want to look sloppy or shoddy. My number one fashion pet peeve is baggy jeans and/or saggy jeans. OMG, seriously, your pant should always accentuate your ***, not leave it hanging in disgrace. Fit is above all else!!!
Expression, can you please make a link on the first page in for your first post for each interviewee so it is easier to navigate through the interviews...
What an excellent interview with Mamma Mia! What's with all the talk about "leaving?" Are you planning to leave us?
TC to Ken: "You need to watch the ending of ROCH 83."

Do you think I'll get a place in the Broadway?Originally Posted by Tinkle Bell
Like any other comedians (especially my most favourite Charlie Chaplin), beneath that funny bone, there's a Charlie Brown.
I wouldn't say it's a facade; it's me. The looney(tune) part of me, that I wished to taint everyone with.
But hey, everyone has that potential comedic self that works in different ways. Just that some of you may be too shy to get hyper and funny?
What can I say? I'm still standing! No weapon against me shall prosper! I am more than a conqueror!!!
I don't care to sit by the window on an airplane. If I can't control it, why look?
I'm glad someone thinks so highly of me ... well, at least I'm not an arse as i initially presumed myself to be on SPCNET.
Very good interview. I knew I voted for the right people.
Hatred is a curve blade. The harm we do to others, we also do to ourselves.
i tell you, some ppl argue for the sake of arguing.
even bunny's cutsie answers abet on the short side...
on the off note, extra questions for belle.
Out of all the places you've been to for work, which place turned out to be the most different from your expectations?
btw, hotel management & consulting...isn't that lots of $$$
i've found a sugar mamma!
Watch out! Dihydrogen Monoxide will kill us all!
