Because I know I'm such a likeable person I'll do it without you even asking.
200: My name is:
陈纪扬, which is "Chen Jiyang" in Mandarin and "Chin Kee Yong" in Hakka. 陈 (plead) is my family name. 纪 (history) has a neat story behind it: long ago, one of my ancestors in China wrote a poem and decreed that henceforth every generation of my family would use a character from that poem as its middle name. 扬 (praise) was just chosen because it sounds nice.

187: My pet:
Never had one and probably never will.

I buy shampoo by spinning a bottle and purchasing whichever brand it points to.

A very serious commitment, and one I'm not sure I will ever be ready to enter into.

Real intimacy comes from total understanding of your companion.
Luck is just a name for the unknowns in the equation.
I believe the future is predetermined, as are any choices you make.
It's impossible to live if you don't believe in yourself.
Until I see proof one way or the other, I'll withhold from making any judgment.

It's possible for two lovers to be excellent matches for each other.
I hope they exist, but I wouldn't hold my breath for proof.
158: Gay Marriage:
As long as it isn't harming anyone, why not?
War is terrible, inhumane and unjustified.
They aren't ghosts so much as the product of terrible photography.
Real 'magic' is just phenomena that science hasn't figured out how to prove yet.

Burger King has much better quality of food (in Singapore at least).

I've never been to Six Flags.
123: Yankees or Red Sox:
I don't watch sports, nor do I live in the States.
[ Here's What I Think About ]
War is a horrific waste of human life. I glamorize war in Iron Front, but those guys are fictional, and even then the factions of my card game don't gas soldiers or bomb civilians.
121: George Bush:
He was a decent president with very entertaining speech impediments.
120: Gay Marriage:
It isn't harming anyone.
119: The presidential election:
I have never followed any presidential election.
