Chinese Condoms and Favorite Animal

January 10, 2008 / Daily Life / 13 Comments

No, they have nothing to do with each other.

So, about the Chinese condoms, I learned how to say condom in Chinese in class yesterday. For those who want to know, it’s “保险套” correctly romanized as “bao xian tao”. Pronounced like “bow shien tau” for those who can’t read Chinese-style romanization. Our textbook chapter was discussing about how condoms sold in vending machines signified the advancement of Chinese society. How ridiculous! But that wasn’t the funny part. My professor, having come from China, was so embarrassed about the chapter he actually said that he wanted to skip this chapter, “but it was important for us.”

DUDE! We’re in 4th year of university for goodness’ sake. There’s nothing embarrassing about condoms among 22 year olds. Besides, who hasn’t done sex ed in 10th grade?!

Now onto favorite animal. It’s something fun for all my visitors. So be sure to participate. Here are the instructions

Pick three of your favorite animals. The first being your most favorite, the third your lesser favorite. Then think of as many adjectives as you can to describe each animal. Now, click “read the rest of this post” to see what it’s all about! Be sure to let me know what your animals are.


Favorite Animal: Personality Test
This favorite animal test is actually a personality/perception test. Here’s what each choice means:

  1. First Animal: What your want to be
  2. Second Animal: How others perceive you
  3. Third Animal: Who you really are

This is what’s mine:

  1. I want to be a cat: cute, fluffy, affection, poised
  2. But others see me as a tiger: powerful, self-sufficient
  3. Although I truly am a dragon: dignified, wise, ambitious

For me, I think it is true. I’ve always pictured my soul as a dragon and my imitation of cats are not unheard of (by my friends) either. So what were your animals? What do you think about this test?
