I wish I was a Billionaire...

Vera of Baking Obsession, one of my favourite food blogs, tagged me with this questionnaire. Being new to blogging, this is my first time participating. I don't know who came up with the concept at first, but I think it's a good way to get to know other food bloggers a little bit better.
So here goes...

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?

I was 13 years old and at the 6th Grade in Primary School in Singapore. I was sitting for what was called the PSLE, which will basically determine whether or not I would be able to enter a top ranking Secondary School (that's like Junior High).

2.What are 5 non-work things on my to-do list today?

-Upload and edit my photos for the blog
-Read a novel
-Make something using the hybrid lem-orange that my boyfriend gave me, which came from his step-grandmother's backyard
-Check my favourite food blogs for new posts
-Do the laundry and other boring household stuff

3. What snacks do you enjoy?

I enjoy anything sweet and loaded with one or all of the following ingredients: milk, cream, eggs, sugar, butter, flour, fruits, nuts, chocolate, tea, coffee, herbs and spices, maple syrup and honey. I think I covered everything available in a patisserie.

4. What would you do if you became a billionaire?

-Acquire three houses fitted with the best kitchen appliances and ingredients. One in the city, one in the countryside, and one by the beach.
-Build an animal shelter and an animal rescue center.
-Open an old-fashioned little tea and cakes parlour (fine bone china, wallpaper and all the trimmings).
-Travel, travel, travel.

5. Where have you lived?

Firstly, Jakarta, Indonesia. This is where I was born. I was sent away to Singapore to get a better education when I was 9 years old, and it became my home for 9 years. I left it when I turned 18 to come to Melbourne, Australia, and this is where I am now.

6. What jobs have you had?

-My first real job was as a sales assistant at David Jones (one of the largest department store in Australia), where I sold high-end fashion to rich snooty old women who were extremely rude and condescending. I worked there part-time while doing the final year of my bachelor's degree in fashion design.

-I currently work as a part-time Commis Pastry Chef in a restaurant.

Now, if you are still with me, thank you for reading!
