who is gene?

Hi there. Welcome to my first domain!

Sorry for the pajama photoshoot (lol) My brother didn't upload our photo yesterday and my recent solo photo was months ago so I have to improvise.
In case you haven't figured out yet, my name is Gene and welcome to my experiment blog. It didn't occur to me that my blog name would cause confusion in terms of searching it online. You know, gene, dna and experiments. Sounds like a blog of an evil scientist playing with living organism. Made me wonder once if I should change it. Nah, this is a part of me that I do not want to erase.

I am a different person to anyone. A lazy crafter who loves handmade. A photography enthusiast who didn't take that much photo. A food lover who doesn't know how to cook. A snobbish b*tch, according to strangers who think they know everything. A social climber, who according to a schoolmate in high school is a person who tried to experience expensive things once in her life even if it all came from her savings from summer jobs, duh!

The above traits might be negative. Some of which came from people who do not matter and I couldn't care less about their judgmental opinion.

The thing is people do not really know about me. What they see are just bits and pieces of what I really am. Probably the only person who knows me really well is my husband. Then there are my siblings and few select friends. Because frankly, they are the people who matter to me.

So who is Gene anyway?

A person who loves to experience life. She loves to try things at least once; like climb a mountain or go river rafting or scuba dive and swim with a turtle or a dolphin, see a panda in real life or travel the world. There are so many things to experience. Sadly, all I can do is dream for now. One day...

Just to give you the basics:
  • Gene is derived from my real name. It is spelled differently but pronounced commonly. I used to hate my given name because no one ever gets it right. But when I was processing government documents, I realized how lucky I am because I have a unique name that people should be smart like my parents just to be able to invent such spelling. Can you guess what my given name is? Email me here, the first person who guessed it right will receive a Human Heart Nature items from me. Emphasis on GUESS, this is just for fun, no checking in whois, cheaters not allowed.
  • My height reads as 5 flat but I am actually an inch shorter than that and you wouldn't see me writing that, not even here. I am the shortest in our family. :(
  • Dogs love to bite me. When I was toddler, I've been bitten by my aunt's dog on the bridge of my nose. A few bites here in there by our dog while I was growing up, mostly feet or hands. In 2003, our dog Popeye (click his name to see how big he is) bit me in the face that required 12 stitches, we were playing. A year after that, he accidentally snapped at me, the bite required 3 stitches. That must be the reason why needles don't scare me, geez, with the amount of vaccines I have to endure during those bites. Jsyk, Popeye is still alive.
  • Manila will always be my home. If money is not an issue, I would insist on living there. And we really, really need to move away the Marikina fault line.It's scaring the beejesus in me.
  • I lurve Panda. It is also my pet name from my friend Pusa aka Kathy.
  • Makati is a home away from home for me. I love the Little Tokyo area. Pusa and I used to go there after work just to hang out in Sango.
  • Obviously, I love anything Japanese. Their drama series, the way they talk, their way of living, even their food is so oishi. If you haven't seen Tada Kimi wo Aishiteru, you are missing a lot. It's a heartbreaking story but it's my favorite. Plus Chiaki-sama from Nodame is the lead male. XD
  • I babble. A lot. Looking at post now, gee, it's so obvious. Haha!
I think I'll stop for now. Looks like I enjoyed this meme a little too much. I was even confused as to where to publish this.

ALL of them pronounce it as Wil-Ya when it truth,it's pronounce as english name, Wila.Anyway, I babble a lot too, look at my comment, the blog was suppose to be abt you but I talk about me instead, lol!
    Anyway, I've never been in Marikina, hopefully before I die I'll visit the city of shoes!

  29. Hi Gene! I kind of paused a bit just to think of possible invented names you are probably named originally! I also invent names so it interested me to try to figure it out. If it's commonly pronounced but often misspelled, could it be Jene? But then, your real name could probably longer and the pronounced "gene" is just a part of it. How about Rejine? Or Rejene or Regene? The common spelling is Regine but one of the 3 spellings sound like Regine! And since it's just invented (not common spelling), my guess could be any of those (typing as I'm thinking). :D

  37. Hi Gene! :)

    OMG Popeye is a huuuge dog! You still aren't terrified of dogs after you've been bitten a couple of times? :P I remember when my sister was 3 she was bitten on the face by a stray and barely missed her eye, buti nalang hindi ng scar! As for me, I am more of a cat person than a dog person, cause cats don't really bite and they poop in only one place. LOL. :P

    Anyway, it's so nice to meet you.. :) Followed you on GFC.. :) See you around the blogosphere and twitter! :D
