When I was young I wanted to be a professional back up dancer lol, the ones that dance behind an artist. I still love to dance, but I studied Business administration and actually ended up being a stay at home mom.

My dream job was to become a Flight Attendant as I was always fascinated with traveling. I studied Airline Management in college and applied as an FA to a few international and local airlines but failed. The closest job I did was working as a Customer Service Rep (Reservations Agent) for an international airlines and that was the last office-based job I had before working as a freelancer. :)


Now my dream is to save enough and travel the world. Never giving up on my first love. Haha

Everyday is a learning journey. Keep going!

When I was young, I never needed anyone... heheh.


I wanted to be a scientist and do crazy scientist stuff. I pissed off my dad when I put my street magnets on the dinner table, encrusted with dirt and iron filings. I very unsuccessfully went dowsing. I tried using electricity to bring a gecko back to life. OH, and I got first degree burns from a flash powder mishap after New Year's. Good times!

My dream changes as I grow older. 


When I was in primary school, I want to become a nun. After graduation in high school, I dreamed of becoming a

vet doctor. But I ended up taking AB English, and now I'm an office worker. :grin:

I love singing. I'd sing out loud, in broad daylight, any time I wanted if I could. Don't need beer to drop that inhibition. (Though beer is quite nice too, yes.)

When I was little, i wanted to be a reporter. I'd put on my mother's wig, stand I front of a mirror,hold up my hairspray as my mic and speak like one of those reporters I saw on TV.

I want to be a singer,I love music but the kind of music I love is not very popular here, plus reality kicked in, I can't afford my passion for now,maybe in the near future...

Growing up I always wanted to be a lawyer. That is, until, I fell in love with teaching. Teaching young learners has been my passion ever since. I have taught at many childcare centers and just have not pursued any farther. I have 2 step children now and a girl on the way so I plan to stay home with them and teach them myself.

I wanted to be a teacher. When I got older, I realized that I can't provide for my family the way I want to if I try to live on a teacher's salary so I worked in a call center instead and then got promoted as a trainer. These days, I make money as a learning consultant. I'm still in the business of educating people but I sometimes regret that I didn't get to teach the way I originally wanted to.

I wanted to be a doctor or a chemist. But it's very expensive and take long time to finish. :) I like seeing someone wearing a doctor's uniform or wearing a chemist lab gown. :)

When I was a child.. I thought it was cool to work in the cinema. I don't know what exactly it's called..But you know that one person in every cinema's entrance?? They'll just sit there and rip your tickets and they get paid. Lol. And yes, I was that lazy even as a child  


But I also dreamt of becoming a scientist. I was also kind of a geek back then :)
