Deserted on an island

I don’t know how I started thinking about this but here goes. “If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you bring with you?” I’m sure somewhere in school, we were asked this question. I remember hearing it in high school but I don’t remember actually answering this question. I’d figured that I might as well take the time to answer it now.

First off, if I knew that I was going to be deserted on an island, I wouldn’t have gone on that trip in the first place. If someone came up to me and say, “Hey, let’s go on a trip to some deserted island where we’ll drop you off and leave you there. Pack some stuff!” I would give them the finger and then kick them in the head. So, for the sake of argument, lets rephrase this hypothetical questions. “If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want?”

This question varies with the amount of items but I think the whole point of the question is to make you think about the things that you like the most. The items on your list are supposed to be things that you’ll never get bored of. They don’t necessarily have to be thinks that will ensure our survival but they’re things that you can’t live without, so to speak. So here’s my list of items.

Top 3 movies
The Matrix. I can never get enough of this movie no matter how many times I watch it. The story line is full of interesting things and it’s full of action.
Transformers. This is my all time favourite cartoon series and I wouldn’t want to be without it.
Hackers. I’m into computers because of this movie. Although, I can’t hack like the characters in the movie, it’s kind of cool to see the stuff that they can do with computers even though most of the stuff in the movie isn’t entirely possible.

Top 3 books
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. This is the first book that I’ve spend money on. I never thought that I would pay to read something but this book got me hooked on reading.
The Da Vinci Code. There aren’t too many books out there that are hard to put down. I spent a lot of my free time trying to finish this book. During college, I had projects and assignments due every day so it was hard ti find free time. But when I did, I found myself read this book rather than surfing the internet.
Five People You Meet In Heaven. This book triggers some brain activity and got me started thinking about the meaning because the novel. Usually, I just read a book because of the story line but there’s more to it than that. There’s a theme that the other is trying to tell you but you won’t know what it is unless you read between the lines.

Top 3 songs
Justin Lo – Kong. I listen to this song in the car during my trip to and from work. It’s a good way to practice Cantonese pronunciation. I’ve picked up a few words that I couldn’t hear before. And now, I hear the exact point where the singer takes a breath. Odd, yes, I know.
Wierd Al – White & Nerdy. This song is too funny to miss. Weird Al’s song is always funny. It’s just that, I can relate to this one except I’m not white. I am white washed though.
Cara Kelterborn – Butterfly Wings. My friend wrote this song and it’s the first song that I heard when I got her album. I found myself listen to this song over and over because it had a really good beat and catch lyrics. Although, at first, I was hearing the wrong words.

Top 3 food
Chicken. I’ll eat anything that has chicken in it, no matter what it is. Well, there are limitations. I’m not going to eat things that are Fear Factored styled.
Pepperoni pizza. I love pizza.
Mama Noodles. It’s the quickly and easiest things to make.

Voeun. He’s probably one of the funniest guys I know. He can turn anything into a joke. And no matter what it is, he’ll relate it to sex.
Tan. There’s never a dull moment with Tan around. If it starts to get quiet on the island, you can rest assure that Tan will let out a fart. His favourite line is, “Shhh! Do you guys hear that?” “What? We don’t hear anything.” “Brrrraaapppp!”
2n. He’s creative and likes to talk about interesting things, mostly philosophical things. He can keep us sane.
