TIGER'S DAILY BITE #5 - A little Tiger is never enough

Inspired by devoted Tiger Tem fan Uzo's meme thing, but I decided to switch it up a little.

So here we have it.

…10 Random things about me

1. I walk on my tiptoes when I’m barefoot. I’ve been doing that since I learned to walk…its just what I do.

2. I have a ridiculously strong sense of smell. Seriously. If someone lights up outside the window of our flat, I can smell it. Immediately.

3. I’m delusional about money. You’d think that would be a really big problem. But I really don’t think it is….or maybe that’s how deep my delusion goes.

4. I am completely addicted to tea. I cannot function without my morning cuppa.

5. I hate coffee..mocha, frappucino, latte. Tigertino...you name it, I hate it. But I love the smell.

6. My favourite type of shopping on the face of the planet is grocery shopping. I can be in a supermarket every day. When I moved to Lagos, Sainsbury was the shop I missed the most (not a Tesco fan).

7. I’m pretty low maintenance. Not a fan of spas, manis, pedis, facials. I hate all that poking and prodding. And every time I’ve had a massage I’ve been asleep in minutes which defeats the whole object doesn’t it? Even getting my hair done is a bit of an effort.

8. I’m not into Yoga.

9. Or Paris. But like yoga, I keep thinking I’m missing something, so I’ll go again and be like….nah.

10. I’m lazy…which is probably part of the reason I worry incessantly. Because I KNOW I can’t be bothered to do the things I should.


Your turn!

@ Stephanie...I should add that, I HATE infusions! Almost all without exception. I'm yet to meet a herbal tea I'll stay friends with. Which is kinda funny considering how addicted I am.


@Oyinkan...it can be a nightmare full stop. Hate the tube so would rather spend twice as long on the bus with a good book.

@Uzo...don't you do something financial as your job? Maybe you could teach me a thing or two!

My word!!!
It's amazing how u imagine u have someone all figured out, and nxt thing u find out is
''how wrong u are''
Ms Tiger, I cld have sworn u were a high maintainance female breezing in and out of them spas(no offence)but alas, now this is refreshing!!!
that said, I love my coffee, lattes, mocha's and pay homage to starbucks every other day. lol

My reflexes find me standing on tip toes when trying on clothes, it's just something I do that some of my friends find a lil weird, oh well what can I say...

Uzo said...

LOL...Sort of...but i would gladly help

Tiger Tem said...

@ 2hot4fendi...ha ha ha ha ha. That's why I put that one in.

@Uzo..cool, Will call on your services when needed.

FUN STUFF. I DID THE MEME TOO FROM UZO. I HATE MAKING TIME FOR MANI AND PEDI, I DONT LIKE COFFEE BUT WILL DO HOT CHOCOLATE IF THERE IS NO TEA. LOVE TEA MYSELF, WAY TOO MUCH. I AM ADDICTED TO SKIN CARE PRODUCTS, HARDLY EVER GO FOR FACIALS BUT EVERY NOW AND THEN ONCE A YEAR OR SO, I DO A LOT AT HOME ALREADY. LOVED GROCERY SHOPPING IN COLLEGE, I WAS ADDICTED TO SUPER WALMART. I FEEL LIKE THIS IS MY MEME, LOL SORRY JUST TRYING TO CONNECT

Tiger Tem said...

@ SET...great minds.

Wow. U go girl. Chai and green tea - they are quite good, yes, and chamomille. I love PG, as well.

Tesco is ok., Asda is more like it. Then Sainsbury in my own opinion is posh; you know what i mean.

Money: I get it; it's good to have it, as a girl needs it, you know, now.

Walking around barefoot is equally good as it helps keep the circulation going on. And i daresay, in the U.K. it's quite a different matter as it is chilly...these days.


Yoga is good - simple yoga. Tai Chi is equally good.

Like and love aromatherapy.

Well...girl - gotta go.

Thanks, Tiger Bites.
