It really has been a while since the last time I had to sit and think what I'd write down (in black and white, digitally or otherwise) what my interest are. The last time I wrote about my hobby would probably be during pre-U days. Usually, I never really give much thought to what it is I like to do. If I like to do it, I it. I like a lot of thinks, that I know. I know I love cooking, baking (and eating)...I enjoy taking photos...I love PC games (tho I tend to suck in most of it :P )...blogging...and mostly anything PC related...hahaha!

But when it comes to writing it down, black and white, for some other people to see (especially for employment purposes) kinda makes you think twice (and three times) about what you'd write in your CV.

Cooking/baking....sure why not? It's a healthy interest, eventho it's not really gonna help in any job which is technical-dependent. Well my future employers could always hope for some home cooked snacks I guess.

Photography (not that I'm really good in it) ...well that ain't gonna help either. But at least its a healthy hobby (unless pedophiles are saying that they love photography).

*koff koff very minor* Web design......and blogging. HAHAHAHA. Ok once your future employer reads that, he/she'll start googling for your name in the blogsphere. But I think in this day and age, they'll do that anyway. Heh!

Playing PC games. Right. Like that would help. Ok fine at least it shows that you're PC literate.

Watching drama/movies/anime. Yeah. So you and your colleagues can use the office line to leech movies and share via network.

Facebooking. Hah!

Shopping. Yes. Shopping.

AIH! Whatever la!

In the end, I guess, interest/hobby/passion, is something you do in your leisure time - aka what you do when you get OFF work. So it shouldn't be anything that would influence your job, I think. But sometimes I guess it does help when your interest is somewhere near what you love to do. For instance, if you like to build lego blocks, your employers might be convinced that you, as an architect, would build bridges that won't simply just collapse when a bunch of kids walk over it. :P

But like I said. If whoever you're hiring loves to bake, chances are, you'll get some cookies for New Year or Christmas.... ;P
