not again..


Aidan : Mammeee..what sound does a giraffe make?
Me : Errrr....err..(??)

Darn..i had no friggin idea. Neither did hubby. Time to google.
(Aidan wanted to know so that he could say giraffe in Old Macdonald had a farm)

Going to the zoo on Good Friday morning wasn't a good idea since
a) almost everyone else (with children) was there..
b) it rained cats and dogs *sigh*
Oh well, at least Aidan got to see the giraffes! He's been wanting to see the long necked animal for the longest time.
*************************************

Wanted to color my hair since the whites are showing again (yes, I'm aging *sob*) so hubby dropped me off at Compass Point and headed home with a sleepy Aidan. And I was 'Tanya-ed'. Again. Lately, strangers have been mistaking me for her. No idea why. Most of the time, it's just people telling me that I looked like her. But the last 4 occasions including today, people actually thought I was her! Once was at City Link where someone yelled out "Tanya" really loudly and ran to me joyfully (I swore that really happened) and almost wanted to kissy kissy me till I quickly stopped him.. Another occasion was at a jewellery shop. I was window shopping and one of the sales staff kept smiling and giving me tiny waves through the glass window. And then he approached me when I was checking out a pair of earrings. He starred at me..which unnerved me a li' but I decided to ask about the price of the item. He blinked and exclaimed "Oops..sorry. I thought you were Tanya Chua. Have anyone told you that you look really like her?". Gah.

Hmm..is there really such a strong resemblance? I still don't think so. But I don't mind having her talent though :P

Man, I have no clue what sound giraffes make either! Come to think of it, I've never really heard a giraffe make any noise. Then again, maybe sound doesn't carry very well from up there to down here huh? LOL!

Come to think of it, Aidan does have a passing ressemblance to Tanya (erm a young, male version?), but I don't really think you look like her leh. OK, maybe the smile and face shape.

Hmm, I do see get the resemblance, but only because you pointed it out. Then again, I'll always think of Tanya Chua as that rock chick who sang 'My Colour TV Set'. Not too used to her Mandarin pop star image.

yeah lor..i dont think i look that much like her thats why im kinda amused and flabberghasted that pple can actually mistake me for her.

She's much more girlier now eh..no more that rock chick. But i do think she's talented.

a li' of the hair i think too. when i was working at mediacorp, many pple told me that i looked like her especially then i had bangs. but i was thinking it shouldnt be to the extent that pple mistake me for her. think those pple r probably shortsighted.

Hokay checked up on giraffe info...

Giraffes are thought to be mute. However, recent research has shown evidence that the animal communicates at an infrasound level with a surprising level of complexity.

So there you go, Aidan would have to just swing his head in replacement for the mute sounds ;)

Apr. 15th, 2006 04:58 am (UTC)
heh yeah. i googled and read that too..they call it quiet noise - so cheem. i guess that's the way they communicate with each other. i read they also snort and moo too *so cute*

I never thought you looked like Tanya until you mentioned.
And now that you mention.....
There is an uncanny resemblance! Haha.

but if i had to mention for u to see the 'uncanny' resemblance, that means it cant be that obvious =)

awww ... i think it's the hair lah woman.
anyway, i LOVE tanya chua. i can listen to her "stranger" CD for weeks on end without getting tired of it. the best thing she did for her career was switch from english to mandarin.
angeliatay
Apr. 15th, 2006 04:55 am (UTC)
hmm..i prefer her english songs though, but she's a good composer. switching from english to mandarin gave her more exposure and allowed her to venture into taiwan so i guess it did great for her career..

Hahhaa... sometimes when people look at my pictures they say I look like Tanya too. Like you, I dont think I resemble her. Anyway from your pictures, I think you look prettier than Tanya. ;)
angeliatay
Apr. 15th, 2006 04:50 am (UTC)
she's prettier lah..she has dimples =)

i guess probably it's quite a 'common' look..could be coz of our long hair (tho i have no idea how u look since u didn't sign off ;P)

@ least they mistook you for Tanya... if people ever made a mistake about me, they usually thought i am Lydia Sum... or her daughter before she lost weight dramatically... :S
