How do you pronounce that word anyway? Is it me-me or mae-mae?
Well, I was tagged by Sara, I don't think you'd want to know more about me,but here it is anyway....

Ten Years Ago
I was 8, still living with my parents in Indonesia. Just started 3th grade and have always ranked first (that's all about to change in my 3th grade). My primary school memory was a really fond one. My mom sent me to all sorts of courses. I did ballet, English, keyboard, etc. I was my teachers favourite, being as talkative(and cute!) as I am now. I hang out with girls and boys, spent lots of time in the library reading children's book. I was also quite notorious having been in lots of fights with boys(hey, they started it first!). I had daily fights with my little bro too, needless to say, I won most of the time. My mom used to dislike me back then, but our relationship got much better after I move to Malaysia.

Five Years Ago
I was 13, on my first year of junior high, second year in Malaysia. I had lots of new friends, having lots of fun, spending lots of money on useless stuffs. I was on my early teenage years, and we had a lot of curiousity in sex. I think I can say that I knew much more than my friends did, having my cousins explained to me about the sperm and egg and all that. Really, one of my friend thought that kissing could make you pregnant. Parents in Asia rarely discuss sexuality with their kids, so we had to find out by ourselves. Two of the boys got caught for opening a porno website on my shcool library. Silly.

One Year Ago
Mi sweet seventeen!! I had my first part time job as a waitress in a coffee & tea house. It was so much fun!! I met new friends, learn to make varieties of coffees and teas. And the food was delicious!! Well..we weren't supposed to eat the food while working...but know...
I worked for four months, more than 100 hours per month. I never thought that I'd enjoy it that much, but I sure did, especially when I got my fist salary ;D
Most of my time was consumed in working and tuitions, and I hardly ever went out with friends. I didn't really matter to me anyway. I was working on my first knitting project back then, a long ribbed scarf in pink and cream stripes. I sometimes knit while working, and I even taught my friends(colleagues) to knit!!

This whole thing took me an hour!! Now...I'd like to tag:

Very nice kiri. I'm still trying to figure out what should I do with my shimmer. May be another small shawl like your's would be nice.
