A – Alagon. My mother’s maiden name. It also stands for Audrey – my mom’s name.
B – Books. I love books – the look, the feel, the smell – they make me feel good. No, I’m not a bookworm. But reading is one good hobby I enjoy doing. I even thought of becoming a writer or an author, I just need to learn how to express my thoughts and ideas better.
C – Christian-Catholic. I was born a Catholic but converted to Christianism in my teens. Being a Christian taught me more lessons than being a Catholic. (No offense to all Catholics out there.)
D – Dark Chocolate. I am so into chocolates and dark choco is my favorite. I didn’t really like it when I was young (which is normal because kids like it sweeter.) I enjoy chocolates with almonds, hazelnuts, or any kinds of nuts.
E – Enrico. My father’s name. He was called Eric, Erica, and Ericbajns by his comrades. I remember liking everything that he thought was interesting.
F – Folk dance. I was an active student when I was in my elementary. My teachers would frequently choose me (along with my other classmates) to dance “Rosas Pandan”, “Igorot dance”, and others.
G – Gadgets. I just love gadgets. These electronic devices just amaze me every single time. Technology always surprises us with new ones – touch screen phones/monitors/music players, TV phones, phones with Microsoft Office, mobile Internet, camera phone with a high resolution, I can’t name all the others, it’s endless!
H – Home Alone. I saw my first Home Alone movie when I was, if I’m not mistaken, 6 years old. I remember my father took us to the cinema to watch this movie but it was so crowded that we had to watch it standing. And that was my birthday! Lucky, eh?!
I – iPod. I have a black 8G iPod Nano that I use to listen to music wherever I go or whatever I do. Music is a part of my “Rikaness”. Without music, Rika isn’t whole.
J – Journals. When I was younger, I tried to make my own journal. But because I was lazy and was not imaginative enough, I had nothing to write about. But now I realize that all my thoughts should be written down.
K – Kite. I have never, EVER, flown a kite, well, at least, successfully. I tried during our P.E in my grade school but it didn’t go up in the air. I never tried since then.
L – Laptop. My first laptop is the one I’m using right now – an Acer E-Machines D725. It’s cheaper than all the other famous branded laptops but it’s got good specs anyway. It has 2G RAM, 320G Hard Disk, 8x DVD drive and 5-in-1 card reader. It’s 6 months old and not fully-paid yet. (teehee~)
M – May Gelynn Carena. My best friend since I knew the world. She is the only person I know who accepts me for who I am and who understands all my misdemeanor.
N – Notebook. Something I MUST always have in my bag when I go out.
O – Okra. I’m quite a fussy eater. If there is a list of my “I-will-never-try-this-veggie-ever”, this will be at the top of my list.
P – PlayStation Portable and Pens. This is one of those gadgets I would like to have. I am also a child at heart and I enjoy playing games! I love pens, too! Color pens, sign pens, technical pens, ballpoint pens, gel pens, any pens (which includes PENcils..)
Q – Quez-O. The brand of cheese my mom used to buy when we were kids. I really hated cheese that time. Now I love it!
R – Roller Blades (Also called “inline skates”). My classmates used to bring their own pairs of Roller Blades at school. I tried using a pair but I didn’t manage to keep my balance. I have never worn any ever since.
S – Slippers and Sneakers. It’s more comfortable for me to go out in my rubber slippers or my sneakers than any other kind of shoes. So whether I’m wearing jeans or short pants, I just put my slippers on.
T – Ticklish. I am an extremely ticklish person so just a gentle touch on my skin or a hard poke on most parts of my body make me shiver.
U – Uzumaki Naruto. My favorite action/adventure Japanese animation. I didn’t like it when I first saw it on TV. I used to think it was a bit silly. But the Shippuuden episodes caught my eye and I started being fond of it since then.
V – Voter’s ID. My photo on it is the “most beautiful” picture I have! NOT! Sorry, but I ain’t showing it to you. Uh-uh-uh!
W – Watch. A must-have. I’ve got no watch now but I’m really looking forward to having it already.
X – X-ray. I have an X-ray film of my leg due to the traffic accident I got into way back 2005. It was like only a few weeks after getting hired in my first job and I got into this accident! Good thing there was no broken bone! Good heavens!
Y – Yearbook. I wasn’t in my High School Yearbook because my school refused to include me. Reason? They overreacted.
Z – Zuma. A character I used to be scared of when I was a little girl. He still creeps me out until now though.
