10 Things on Us

10 Things you would never have guessed about Princess:

1. I played the trombone but gave up when I realised it was bigger than me and I couldn’t reach E sharp.

2. I tore my ligaments (twice… on both feet).

3. I performed at the Royal Albert Hall. Sang La Traviata.

4. I broke the school record for the slowest run in the 1500 metre race –12 minutes.

5. I love Travel Discovery and Cuisine TV. I hope to be a roaming Nigella Lawson.

6. I can’t ride a bike, nor drive a car. Public transport and Frog’s scooter are my best friends.

7. I could never turn vegetarian – why were we made carnivores otherwise?

8. Favourite motto: Life’s too short. (Helps reduce any guilt pangs)

9. Secret confession: Love chick lit! (Same stories, same characters, but so what)

10. Secret ambition: My books to be published (and be a bestseller, natch!)


10 Things you would never have guessed about Frog:

1. I was sent on my own to American summer camp aged 8.  The only little Frog to cross the pond.

2. I was a child model but my mother put an end to this career.

3. 8 hours a week of sports then got married to Princess and now it’s over.

4. I wear a “Clan Menzies” kilt and I’m proud of it (in respect of my Scottish ancestry)

5. I still listen to 80s music. No, I’m not stuck in a time warp.

6. I always confuse the words fuzzy and fussy.

7. I do a great impersonation of Elvis – the King (in his fat period).

8. My favourite motto: If you don’t have major problems, you’re probably not doing something major.

9. Secret confession: I’m claustrophobic.

10. Secret ambition: Perform on stage with my acoustic guitar in front of an adoring crowd.

    I’ve attend ur speech this morning.n i love to b your fan. love from kuching

  4. Hey! I stumbled upon ur blog…and think its really COOL!!! Informative, interesting, lively. Keep it going…one of those which I will always look forward to for updates 🙂

    Princess,
    I have a confession to make here – I can’t ride a bike, neither do I drive. Owh well, I used to think that I’m such a because of these disabilities. But now after reading about u, I’ve begun to think differently. Come to think of it, I’m even more independent than those who sit behind steering wheels. I’m capable of hopping on and off any mode of public transport on my own. And when people pass remarks like “OMG! U don’t drive???”…my spontaneous reply to them would be, “Owh well, I’m different. I was born to be a Princess! :p” Hahahahaaha!!! Not trying to be snobbish. But, so what if I don’t drive, right? I still can manage to get myself to any destination on time 🙂

  5. Tz, i never thought u cant drive a car. i like to ride a bike b4 but an accident make me a bit phobia so i stick to walking and public transport…guess what..a lot of thing happen..u got new friends and u can enjoy life too. That life rite….thank u for sharing it to me….

  11. Hey Princess

    Im a fan of your blog! Currently a student in London and we’re organizing an event and was thinking of inviting you to be on the panel for our corporate session on youth and career opportunities. Was wondering what would be the best way to send our formal invitation and proposal to you? Sorry for contacting you here and thanks!

    Great work on this amazing blog. 🙂

  12. Hi frog,

    thank you both for sharing the articles. If you every like to life without the claustrophobic send me an email. I would be happy to help you. I will be part of the year in Hua Hin Thailand and the other part I am living in Berlin. I am sure you know that both citys have many 5 stars hotels.

    All the best,
    Alfred Himmelweiss

  13. Dear Frog and Princess
    I’m working for an educational publisher in Singapore, on a Social Studies textbook for Brunei, and I’m wondering if I can please use a couple of your pictures to illustrate a section about the importance of the rainforest?
    They’re great photographs!
