Did it like a dude

Did it like a dude

Brovember started last week, so we asked you - guys and girls - what was the manliest thing you've ever done. Here are your top 10 answers ...

1. Barking mad

I stood up to the fierce "be-quiet-Dennis-it's-just-a-vacuum-cleaner" and barked it away. My house has felt strangely dirty ever since ...

Dennis Goodboy

2. Spaced out

Some people might think this is lame, but the manliest thing I've ever done was going on Space Mountain at Disneyland. I'm really scared of roller coasters!

Odessa Fung, 13

3. Notable effort

I once stood up in front of my class and bellowed the opening bass solo of Tuba Mirum from Mozart's Requiem. I could practically feel the testosterone rushing into my vocal cords.

Jade Lam, 16

4. Road sense

I don't mean to brag, but once I didn't look both ways before crossing a road. (OK, I was in a hurry! Always remember to look both ways before you cross the road!)

Pradyumn Dayal, 13

5. Knight-ly thing to do

My friend sprained her ankle quite badly when we were out together. As she could hardly walk, I simply picked her up and carried her on my shoulders! I bet I looked like a knight in shining armour!

Heidi Kwan, 16

6. Hair-raising move

What defines a man is the beard. Last year, I didn't shave my beard for a whole month! It worked particularly well with my Movember moustache, too.

Rajinder Deol, 16

7. Bunny-hopping

The manliest thing I've ever done was smack a cockroach with my (bunny) slippers.

Sanchez Lo Tsz-shan, 18

8. In good hands

I once opened a jar of syrup with my bare hands, when neither my dad nor 20-year-old brother could!

Tiffany Tang, 17

9. Sporty types

Hanging out with the jocks in school is definitely the manliest thing I ever did. I always wanted to spend some time with them but was too shy. So I just manned up and approached them, and they let me hang out with them!

Kelsi Lo, 13

10. The fiery side of me

Once in kindergarten, we all got to dress up and pretend to be doctors or postmen. Even though I specifically told the teacher I wanted to be a policewoman, I ended up being a fireman and I tried very hard to walk around like one. That was the manliest moment of my life.
