20 Fun Facts about Me

Okay, time to be slightly narcissistic ☺.  All jokes aside, I thought it was grand time to write a post to introduce myself properly.

I am rubbish at talking about myself, so instead you get to read 20 facts about me.

    1. I am 29 years old
    2. I am a chemist by qualification and have over 5 years of experience developing products for the market.
    3. Skincare is as much a passion of mine as is travel. My chemist background means that I am very picky with my skincare and very wary of the ingredients used in skincare products.
    4. Cinnamon and lemongrass are the only two flavours I hate, but will eat everything else
    5. I am a chocoholic. If it has chocolate in it, I will eat it.
    6. Melbourne is my favorite city in the whole wide world.
    7. I hold dual citizenship – Mauritius and Australia. 
    8. I was born in Mauritius where I lived for 19 years
    9. I love reading and can read over three full length books per day (if I am not doing much else).
    10. I hate to be disturbed when I am reading and have been known to agree to things randomly without really listening while I am reading.
    11. I can speak four languages fluently: English, French, Hindi and Creole
    12. My first language is French
    13. I hate being defined by labels that society created
    14. I am stubborn to a fault
    15. I can pick up languages very quickly. I learnt to speak Hindi without any training. After 4 days in Spain, I could communicate and speak to the locals (basic but effective)
    16. I love road trips, but I always fall asleep in a moving car (when I am not driving)
    17. I love massages. In fact, I tricked Scott into promising that he will massage me anytime I ask (boy does he regret that)
    18. I have no favorite cuisine but I do have a soft spot for my mother’s cooking
    19. Scott (my husband) is my favorite person in the whole world
    20. I love meeting new people but I am rubbish at small talk.
