I got these interesting pieces of information from my dear cousin K!
I honestly do not know where he gets them from? nor do i know how valid they are, but if they happen to be true, then its pretty cool to learn such random stuff!

After a long summer holiday, and after not seeing any of my friends, including my crush, for 3 months; I was starting my second year in kindergarten and I remember i was both excited and nervous to go back to school.
During that first day, I remember i was very shy from finally seeing my crush again. During recess, when all the kids were playing catch, i was literally running away from him, trying to hide and avoid any embarrassment from seeing him again.
And guess what, as i was running so fast, making sure he doesn’t notice me, i ran into a wall! Literally! heheheh…. I still have a scar on my forehead as proof! hehehe…

We wondered why buffalo wings are called ‘buffalo’ wings when they are in fact chicken wings?
Last summer, my mother-in-law wanted to order buffalo wings, and as she was ordering it she realized that she didn’t want ‘buffalo’ wings – as in the wings of a buffalo – but instead she wanted the wings of chicken! Hehehe
We reminded her that the order was only named ‘buffalo’ but they were in fact the wings of chicken! Hehehe ; )
We all know that buffaloes don’t have wings… but does anyone know why the hot’n’spicy chicken wings are sometimes called ‘buffalo’ wings?
A good friend of mine asked me for a favor that ended up having rats taking over my car!
We were in college, and my friend SD had a snake named Sawsan as a pet which fed on rats! The day came when SD had to feed Sawsan, but also had to drive 45 minutes to pick up a friend from the airport. So, he calls me for this favor, knowing very well how much i hate rats, and begged me to pick up a couple of rats from the store before it closes. SD promised that the store keeper would double wrap them in paper bags, and one more time in a plastic bag, and that i would keep them in my car until he is back from the airport.
Silly me, i believed him! Almost 2 hours had passed and the thought of these rats still in my car disgusted me. I had to wait for SD to pick them up only to find out that the rats were able to bite their way out of the bags and hide somewhere in my car! Eewwwwwwwwww!!!!
As soon as SD arrived, along with our friend HM2, it was the funniest thing to watch both guys struggle for at least 30 minutes to catch these rats! Each time one of them manages to catch a rat, the rat would curl upwards to bite the hand that caught it and flee! hehehe….
I laughed so hard that night, thinking that such a struggle was my way to teach SD a lesson to NEVER ask me for such a favor again! 😉
