My 100 List

Since I've read that you ain't an official blogger without having your own 100 list soooo here is mine.

1. I got my nickname, "Don" or "Dondon", from an 80's actor named Dondon Nakar.
2. Whenever I see a cute dog, I approach and pet it.
3. I know how to call a cat's attention. Seriously.
4. When I came out of this world, my relatives thought I looked like a monkey since I was too hairy and very small. Only 3 pounds.
5. I saved my mom during my birth. If I didn't come out, we'd die both. Thus the name, "Salvador".
6. I love buying stuff. I make sure that I have at least 3 new items.
7. My day isn't complete without singing. From morning, noon, till night.
8. I never call my brother by his real name. I call him Kuya.
9. Whenever I watch a very, very sad movie, I cry.
10. Been wanting to have dreads since 2000. Am happy that I got it when I reached my 30th.
11. I love Regine Velasquez. Been a fan since highschool.
12. I have always dreamed of performing on stage.
13. I love legos.
14. Got 3 medals. All from having the best conduct in school.
15. I had a 5-year no-credit-card hiatus.
16. I'm allergic to dust.
17. I like to travel.
18. I owe my speaking to Sesame Street. Many thought I was also deaf & mute like my cousin.
19. I collect Stephen King and Dean Koontz books.
20. When I was a kid, I always thought that the "Jaws" shark would come out of the big screen.
21. I was a spelling bee finalist.
22. Whenever my mom receives a communion, I used to ask for a taste of the host.
23. I used to perform a mock mass when I was a kid. My dogs were my participants.
24. My favorite cats are Sassy and Ming.
25. My first brush with death was when my break brake didn't work while I was approachin an intersection. Illinois had a snowstorm then. The road was very slippery. My car skidded and stopped a few inches away from another vehicle full of kids. The driver gave me a thumbs-up sign (i think).
26. I love teaching.

27. I prefer Pepsi over Coke.
28. I love ice cream cake.
29. My first crush is Ercel Aurige. We were on first grade ;o)
30. My 25th birthday is my saddest birthday because I couldn't afford to treat my friends.
31. My 30th birthday is my most expensive birthday celebration.
32. Bacon, eggs, and fried rice is my most favorite brekky.
33. "An American Tail" is my ultimate favorite movie.
34. I used to get a lot of coloring books and crayon when I was a kid.

40. My ultimate regret is that I didn't participate in the World Youth Day. I wish I've seen Pope John Paul II.
41. I hate cockroaches!
42. I hurt my back while cleaning our bathroom tiles in Bulacan. A muscle tear according to my doctor.
43. I share my birthday with no less than Superman, Christopher Reeve.
44. My first videoke baptism was in 98. I sang "I Believe I Can Fly" at Max's in Jupiter and in front of a crowd.
45. The inspiration to write down my thoughts in a journal came from my AC participant named Joachim.
46. I want to visit Europe one day with my speci"A"l someone.
47. I want to render my voice to an animated character ;o)
48. My earliest memory I have was when I was sent back to a hospital and the doctors wanted to do some more tests to me. I wouldn't wanna be left alone in the hospital again so I grabbed my daddy's necklace and it broke. I was about 3 or 4 then.
49. I believe in karma.
50. I put bagoong on my fried chicken.
51. I stole only two things in my entire life. First, when I was 8. I stole a crayon-looking candle in a department store. And second, when I was 30, I brought home a nice pair of antique-looking silverwares from our second floor canteen.
52. In school, I only cheated once. That's during our final exam in my Assembly language class.
53. During math recitations, since my teacher (I think) likes me, she always requests for number 8 in the multiplication table. So I've memorized 8x1 = 8. 8x2 = 16. 8x3 = 24....
54. The word that got me eliminated in one spelling bee contest is "wheel". I thought the teacher wanted me to spell out "w-i-l-l".
55. I've always wanted the name "Dylan". I'd like my son to go by that name.

60. I love rollercoasters.
61. My super favorite chocolate bar is BarNone.
62. I cannot sleep with tv or radio on. It has to be 100% complete silence.
63. The biggest surprise I gave my parents happened during my college graduation. They all didn't know--especially my mom who came up the stage--that I'd be receiving a medal. She's very proud of me ;o)

82. I wear size 8 shoes.
83. I'm a sucker for reality-based tv shows.
84. I stay away from "Behind the Scenes" before a movie I like is shown. Spoils the fun!
