Ten Things About Me




I got 100 followers on bloglovin'! I'm screaming right now, that's incredible! For some people, it's nothing but it means the world to me. It makes me happy to know people actually like my blog and read it. I used to picture myself talking to a brick wall during the early months. 

So to celebrate, I'm going to tell you ten things about me. Some weird, some surprising but all unnecessary. 

Anyway, here are some facts about me!


Bash Harry : Not Real Name | Scandalous. It is my name but shortened and twisted to make it the way it is now. Bash is my shortened name and Harry is my dad's nickname, hence Bash Harry.

Potterhead, Whovian, Nerd | No one knows to what extent how nerdy I am. They don't know I have a Ravenclaw tie. Three sonic screwdrivers. A poster of Scott Pilgram and the Joker on my wall. A surprising amount of knowledge of Japanese fiction and comic book lore. They know nothing.

Has Never Seen Star Wars | Or any of the Star Trek franchise (except the last two), or Forrest Gump, or Fight Club or Titanic. How disappointing of me. It's on my bucket list though!

Like a Salad Bowl | Mixed with weird ingredients, but mainly salad. I'm considered a Bruneian Malay. But from my mom's side, I'm part Malaysian, Chinese, and Indian. And a whole lot more that I can't count.

Also A Petite Pear | I'm considered pear-shaped, small waist with child-bearing hips. This would be fine if I had a butt. Wide hips, no butt isn't a flattering body shape. Adding that I'm barely reaching 5'2, it is why I don't have a lot of outfit posts.

Tomboy at Heart | Despite all the makeup I do, I'm a tomboy. It surprises people to find out how gross and unlady-like I am. Burping sentences, crude jokes and intimidating boys are my forte.

Adequate Actress but Terrible Dancer | I think I'm considered an actor, even though there isn't an entertainment industry over here. While I'm just fine at acting, my dancing is horrible. I can't even do the Chicken Dance right.

Manic Stage Person | A lot of people have stage fright but I don't. I'm more adept at public speaking than actual conversation. It all began with my need to speak and for people to listen at age two and half minutes...

A Brace-Faced Gummy Bear | I have braces! They're the main reason why I don't smile with my teeth in official shots. That, and because my gums are more prominent than my teeth. It makes me look childish and feel insecure. 

Always Optimistic, Always Okay | I'm an optimist, even though I shouldn't be. I think people are good, even if they aren't. It makes me naive, gullible, and a little more than stupid. Everyone tells me I shouldn't have so much faith but I do. It backfires and I break. But I know I'll pick myself up again and be okay.

+_=_+_=_+

I told you they were unnecessary. But they are fun little tidbits that keeps conversation going, and makes me seem more interesting than I actually am. Thank you to everyone who has read this tiny blog of mine, it brings me such joy to read all your lovely comments. Everyone in the blogging community is so sweet, and so supportive. You are amazing. 

So I'd like to know something about you! Tell me something about you in the comments! I'd love to know!

    1. Agree with May! You are so beautiful! I love your hair! And I think braces look always so cute and charming on girls! I'm a tomboy at heart as well: don't like girly stuff but love make up... Haha! Also did't watch the Star Wars! So nice to read more about you, sweetheart! Congratulation!

  7. I so loved reading this! Congrats on reaching 100 followers, that's awesome :) we have a lot in common! I'm a Potterhead, I'm 5'2 (just. Hate it), I can't dance to save my life, and I'm also a weird sort of salad, but mainly Lebanese, Finnish, British! Oh, please watch Forrest Gump, never mind Star Wars and Fight Club, but Forrest Gump is so awesome x

  12. Congratulations on getting 100 followed and believe it or not, it is a BIG DEAL! I remember when I got 50 and I wanted to faint from excitement. LOL! I love these kind of personal posts, it gives th opportunity to know a blogger I follow better. About me? Well, I'm half Chinese (dad) and mum is Kadazan and I speak Malay, English, Cantonese and Mandarin. Some people here find it strange that I speak so many languages but it's so common back in Malaysia. LOL!

  25. Congrats, 100 is not small, each bench mark is exciting! I just followed you, so now you're at 107 ;) I love reading fun facts about bloggers, it makes them more relatable. I am definitely a nerd too, way more than most think. I'm all about Harry Potter, LOR and Wheel of Time. I even have video game nights with my hubby where we play old N64 games or Halo. Haha! Keep on posting, you are awesome!

  28. Even though we don't know each other in person I honestly believe you're just a good human. Like that last fact about you totally convinced me! It's okay for you to think that every person is good, I would call you naive for that reason, it just, I don't know, if only everyone else like that and you wouldn't have to consider yourself naive :)

    also, I was nodding yes to when I read about star wars.... UNTIL I got to Forrest Gump & the Titanic, girl, you have work to do!

    I had braces too, I don't any more but there are hardly any pictures of me with them as I didn't like to show them off either, haha! It's really quite common though - no reason not to give a big smile for a photo! :)

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you won't even notice that 3 hours have passed! I never knew you had braces! I think braces are so cute- you should show them! This is such a great idea for a post!

  60. Oh Bash I didn't even know you have braces - high five! I've got mine 6 months ago and as they say still need to wear them for next 2 years (because when you are 28 it takes more time to straighten the teeth).
    And I love to smile (yay for ceramic ones on the upper jaw) so I still smile on photos, but from far away)))

  71. OMG team Ravenclaw! Do you also play Pottermore? Hehe. I still open my Pottermore account just because I love seeing the fact that I was sorted in Ravenclaw, my favorite house. ♥ I'm glad to find a fellow Ravenclaw and heck, you even have a scarf! I don't have any fandom things with me. I think the only fandom-related clothing I have is a t-shirt from Game of Thrones stating something about the Red Wedding, but other than that, I don't have anything fandom-related. Huhu. I need to invest more on these stuff once I get a job! :(

    I've never seen Star Wars too, nor Star Trek. :( I've never even seen Lord of the Rings because it bored the heck out of me when I was a kid. It was too long and I didn't have the attention span to sit for more than an hour and a half. Hahahaha! I want to watch it though, or at least read it. Hahaha. xx
