When someone asks me for my favourite this or that, usually I’d be stumped for an answer. Let me give you a few examples of the ‘favourite questions’ and my take on them.
What is your favourite colour?
This one seems to be the norm, all the way from Standard 1 till your last breath. Browsing through my old ‘autograph books’ from primary and high school days, I used to like blue. Then I liked red. Then I liked purple. Then I liked black. Then I liked white. Then I learnt in Pendidikan Seni that white is not a colour. So I liked green. Two years later, I liked blue again, and the cycle continues.
Fuck lah, they are all the same to me lah.
Even if you asked me, would I prefer a blue shirt or a red shirt, I wouldn’t be able to tell you which. My rationale is this — it depends on the cut and design of the shirt, and what shades of blue or red it would be. Sometimes I look better in this design with this shade, sometimes the other.
I have a lime green skirt. I look great in it.
Sometimes you have all these personality tests that ask for your favourite colour because it would represent your personality. Erm… a bit generic, but whatever lah since they are mostly for mindless fun anyway. But everybody *knows* that if you choose black, you are a moody and depressed fuck. If you choose blue, you are well-balanced (why?). If you choose red, you could be aggresive and hit someone for no reason. If you choose yellow, you are as happy as the sun. Or you could be a sexually-promiscuous paedophile. You see, the possibilities are endless!
Heck, I should be making money from all these creative ideas.
What is your favourite animal?
My favourite animal is the walrus. Heck, I’ve never even seen a walrus in real life, but whatever since it’s the first thing that came to my mind. Walruses are big. Walruses have long tusks. Walruses are fat. The male walrus has a completely internal penis. In ‘Alice in Wonderland’, the walrus ate all the oysters. Yay for him.
Or my favourite animal could be the zebra. I’d always wanted to place a zebra in the middle of a zebra-crossing and have a truck completely run the poor sod down. I’d take lots of photos and put it on my blog. I like zebras.
But perhaps my REAL favourite animal is the cow. A large thick slab of medium-cooked steak, served with a nice baked potato with bacon bits and sour cream… no one can say no to that! Well unless you are Dabido, of course
What/who is your favourite song/ singer/ band/ actor/ actress?
I oppose to the question above that promotes bias and prejudice.
What is your favourite flower?
The one in Bambi. But seriously, I DON’T CARE OMG!!!!!!!!
I’ve been accused of lacking in personality because I don’t seem to have preferences for a whole lot of things, which seems a tad absurd to me. I have better things to do with my time than trying to define my preferences to the point of limiting myself.
Of course if you ask me what is my favourite Starbucks drink, I’d tell you because it’s the only thing Starbucks drink I’d purchase. Or what movie to watch, because I’d be spending at least 100 minutes watching it.
But for everything else, bleh.
and comments sake, off the top of your head, what/who is your favourite [anything] at the moment?
