THEY WILL ASK thee as to what they should spend on others. Say: "Whatever of your wealth you spend shall [first] be for your parents, and for the near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer; and whatever good you do, verily, God has full knowledge thereof." - Al-Baqarah (2:215)

Tag, tag, tag...

Hmmm… some people seem to get keTAGeh to this tagging/meme thing… sigh… well, I just so happen to be one of those who don’t really fancy them, but I’ll just try to be a sport this time, ok? Talk about being grateful in my previous post, I have to be grateful I got tagged. It shows I have blogger friends who think of me. Of course, I don't have to LIKE being tagged and I can’t promise to be a sport every time though…

Nightwing tagged me for the 10 questions tag. Earlier on Pearly tagged me with the millionaire tag, but since there is a millionaire question under the 10 questions tag, consider both tags done here... sorry folks, but...

"I'm just a LAZY BUM! LAZY BUM!" (to be sung to the tune of LADY BUMP)

Although I am a law abiding citizen, I don’t usually bother to follow any of these tagging rules (actually too lazy to go through them…). So I shall just answer the questions okay?

Q1. What were you doing 10 years ago.
1. Performed Umrah with 9 other family members after having performed the Haj with my mom the year before.
2. Did freelance accounting – working from home.
3. Installed internet at home.
4. Sold my old red recond Ford Laser (that was my first car!)
5. Grew older…

Q2. What were you doing 1 year ago.
1. Went to AIDS Village in Hatyai, Thailand together with my NGO members.
2. Visiting homes of poor PLWHA families around Perak.
3. Sent a pregnant girl to a shelter home in KL.
4. Attended a workshop organized by MAC.
5. Grew even older…

Q3. What are 5 snacks you enjoy. (not in any specific order)
1. Chocolates
2. Keropok
3. Kerepek
4. Kerapak… oops, no such thing… ok lah, kuih-muih
5. Anything edible lah

Q4. What are 5 songs you know the lyrics to.
1. Negaraku
2. TKC song (my school song)
3. Doe, a deer a female deer… :)
4. Chorus of Rasa Sayang Eh
5. Chorus of Chan Mali Chan
(Oh wow! I know the lyrics to so many songs!! Fuuuyyooohh!!)

Q5. 5 things you would do if you are a millionaire.
That depends…if I’m a millionaire of Rupiahs, I shall remain as I am. If in currencies such as Ringgit, or better still Dollars, Pounds, or Euros…
1. Figure a way to reduce my income tax.
2. Pay off all my debts.
3. Contribute to the poor especially in respect of their children’s education.
4. Invest in such a way that I will be able to quit my office work and do full time voluntary work.
5. Travel to interesting places around the world.

Q6. 5 bad habits. (Where got?! Me very sopan one…)
1. Sometimes tend to spontaneously say things without thinking of the outcome. (that’s why I prefer writing, I can re-read and edit)
2. Lie down on the settee after dinner. (and I’m complaining perut buncit!)
3. Simply dump things on my table at home… it is such a mess! If I tidy them up, later on I wouldn’t know where to find this and that. So I have to leave them messy… (yeah, excuses!)
4. Simply chuck whatever receipts (whether still useful or not) into my handbag.
5. I tend to postpone doing things which I have to do but don’t enjoy doing.

Q7. 5 things you like to do.
1. Set up a home in Perak for HIV women and children.
2. Do full time voluntary work.
3. Perform the Haj again.
4. Learn Arabic.
5. Stop people from tagging me… (wishful thinking?)

Q8. 5 favorite toys.
1. My laptop
2. My hand phone
3. My digital camera
4. My USB recorder/player
5. My electric bike at home

Q9. 5 things you’d never wear.
1. Stilettos (I won’t be able to walk in them!)
2. Too much jewellery (I don’t feel comfortable wearing too many of them…)
3. Anything too fitting.
4. Anything too revealing.
5. My underwear on the outside (like Superman, Wonder Woman etc.) - ni dah tak tau apa nak jawab la ni...

Q10. 5 things you hate to do.
1. Tags
2. More tags
3. Even more tags
4. And again, more tags.
5. Oh no, there’s another tag to be done!!

You get the drift?!

Phew… that was a tough one! And since I’d like to get this over and done with, here comes my respond to the other tag by Daphne Ling… the Fives! (no, not Jackson 5 lah...)

1. Planning for my Ramadhan house visits to send goodies to poor families.
2. Blogging
3. Responding to these tags.
4. Wishing that nobody else will tag me.
5. Thinking of my next posting (after I clear these tags)

Okay, so now I have to tag 5 people. I hereby tag:

1. Superman (or anyone by the name of Suparman)
2. Batman (or anyone who loves bats)
3. Spiderman (or anyone who loves spiders)
4. Ultraman (or Auta man, if Ultraman can't be found)
5. Wonder Woman (or any WOMAN who's always WONDERing what to do...)

There you go... TAG DONE! Legaaaa....

hehehe....after this, we all know that k.pi does not want to be tagged, ever!!! :) but k.pi...i love your kelakar lah...hehhehe

J.T. said...

You are so comical, my dear. Obviously you dislike being tagged but still being a good sport about it. Because you gave in this time, I bet you will be tagged again in the future. :D (looking forward to it).

See... you managed to come up with 5 songs that you know the lyrics to. You commented somewhere (can't remember where) that you only know "Negaraku".

I'm grateful for this post because I got to know Pi Bani better. :)

Pi Bani said...

Anonymous 8.40am (whoever you are),
Give me silly questions, and I'll give you even sillier answers...

Pi Bani said...

See, people tag, I nag...

Yeah, I wrote in Farina's blog saying I only know the lyrics to Negaraku. After thinking hard (see I had to think hard to respond to tags!) I came up with those 5. But knowing the lyrics to those 5 songs (2 of them just chorus mind you) is just as bad as not knowing any lah...

Nightwing said...

Haha, love your answers. Thanks for being a sport.

The Pisces Man said...

Assalamualaikum, hi... came across your blog from Raden Galoh's.

This is by far one of the most interesting blogs by an amazing person...

Wassalam and Selamat Berpuasa!!!

Pi Bani said...

Please don't take my answers seriously... I plead temporary insanity (see, that happens when people tag me!)

Pi Bani said...

Pisces Man,
Thanks for dropping by (lambat sikit singgah, if you came earlier, you could have joined my list of superheroes and superheroines who got tagged!)

And thanks too for the lovely compliments. Aduh, kembang I... nasib baik I pakai loose clothings :)

Selamat berpuasa to you too and may you have a blessed Ramadhan!

PrincessJournals said...

eh Pi, u sure u dont wanna wear underwear inside out? hahahah tht has to be the funniest answer of all!

p.s. byk jugak lagu u tau ye? i pun sebenarnya mals nak fikir lagu apa yg i hafal sbb until the song is played on the radio, i wouldn remember them. very forgetful in tht dept.

PEARLY said...

wow cool la wish I had done like you I hate to be tag too cool one.

Selamat Berpuasa xxx dear

winniethepooh said...

oh wow 3 tags at one go! ure really a superwoman (although a never wear underwear outside superwoman!)

Ruby has a swiss army knife in her bag, and Pi Bani u have a multi purpose penknife and a pepper spray keychain even. U both are so prepared! I think i might start putting some protective stuff in my bag too...

U.Lee said...

Hi Pi Bani, I sure had a laugh read your humourous replies. Where you got your sense of humour? Humour runs in your family?
Your one liners are really classic!
Hey, you know 'Chan Mali Chan'? I love that, as used to sing that when young.
Apa kueh you nak buat for Hari Raya when it comes? Ketupat? Rendang, Kueh dodol?
Have a nice day, UL.

Pi Bani said...

Kan I kata I don't wear anything too fitting. So, susahlah nak pakai under my undies outside my loose clothings, kan? ;)

I pun bab-bab lagu ni suka dengar aje, lyrics payah nak ingat. Negaraku and school song tu sebab dah selalu nyanyi, so ingatlah. Yang lain, lagu budak-budak...

Pi Bani said...

Ya la... don't like to be tagged but at the same time don't want to be a spoil sport either. What to do...

Pi Bani said...

"Never wear underwear outside" kind of Superwoman tak apa... :)

The multipurpose penknife in my handbag is not so much for protection but being the "Minah Gyver" (that's the Malay female version of MacGyver) at the office, I need something handy in my handbag. As for the pepper spray, never used it before, but with the crime rate now, you never know when you need it. So, yeah, just be prepared.

Pi Bani said...

I have always been known as a "loyar buruk". Even when I was the headgirl during my school days, although the juniors all kecut perut see my serious face, those who knew me well would know how "separuh tiang" I was...

You used to sing Chan Mali Chan? Certain songs are very catchy and does seem to stick in the mind, kan?

No plans yet for Raya, but rendang should be on the list. Usually we'd have lemang, but too tedious to cook the lemang so we buy the lemang and cook the rendang. Easier.

Zawi said...

Pi, thanks for the candid answers. It brings some humour to reading boring tag answers. Hopefully some will come to realise tagging should stop now cos not everyone wants to be tagged.
Selamat berpuasa.

Pi Bani said...

Well, some people do love tags; so we can't really put a stop to it, I guess. I didn't want to be a spoil sport, so I thought responding to the tags and at the same time making my stand known is fair.

Some humour is needed in our lives. Otherwise life would be boring, don't you think?

ruby ahmad said...

Hi Pi,

Hilarious! Ha ha. Jangan mimpi lah you will not be tagged again. I wonderwoman, memang tahu semua ni ok! Just be prepared and be as sporting more tags coming your way whenever people wanna a big laugh.

Only you know stuffs like kerapak! Ha ha.

Anyway, I hope you will get your dreams making people in need live better lives. Tengok lah along the way I jumpa siapa2 boleh tolong I will sound the board insy. I dah mention you kids to our TKC girls. Will her your contact. Take care sweetheart.

Pi Bani said...

Sejak bila pulak you jadi wonder woman ni? Always wondering what to do ke?! Aiya... if you donno what to do, don't la tag tag me...

Apa you dah story to the TKC girls?

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

tagging galore!

err, kerapak? yes akak, u lazy bum u...hahaha...

Pi Bani said...

Ya la... because of this tag thingy, now everybody knows I'm a lazy bum!

Eh, you jangan main. One day someone may just create some sort of snack which is part keropok and part kerepek and call it kerapak!

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Kak Pi,


Okie, I will remember never to tag you again =)

nyonyapenang said...

Hi Pi Bani,

I see you have 'taglophobia', I am not the only one to be 'afflicted'. hehheheh.....

But your answers are simply witty and you can expect more tags coming your way. No worries, not from me though.

Pi Bani said...

Finally... someone has agreed not to tag me again. Yayyy!! If you do tag me, I shall nag you... ;)

Pi Bani said...

Taglophobia, huh? So far, have you heard of any cure? Because whoever is going to tag me next must also provide me with the cure!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

kak pi,

sounds more like keropek to me. hihi...

Mat Salo said...

Kelakar laa you ni, Pi.. Hmmm, I pon setuju tag mengeTAG ini... almost same level as suruh join some M-L-M scheme.. But then again, we also loved to be entertained...

But seriously, I hope some of your dreams - especially the noble ones - would come true, Pi. Insya'Allah.

Pi Bani said...

OK lah, when the keropek becomes hapak, then we shall call it kerapak.... :)

Pi Bani said...

Mat Salo,
Ye lah... dah macam MLM pulak. Tapi selalunya for MLMs, each one cari 2 downlines cukup. Yang ni sampai 5! True, sometimes it can be entertaining... but depends jugaklah on how people answer. Kalau semua straight serious answers, boring jugak kan?

For the moment I belum nampak lagi jalan for some of my bigger dreams to come true, but ah, I can always dream...
