Sisterhood of The World Bloggers Award

Since my blog has been dusting for a while, here I am presenting Sisterhood of The World Bloggers Award I received from my lovely Garfield Hug to spice up my blog :P. My sincere thanks to her nominating me for this award. She is a loving, caring and humorous sister who cheers you up any day of a week. 🙂

Here are the questions that come with the award:

  1. What day is your favourite day?

To me, definitely Saturday…Somehow it is a day that makes me think of a peaceful environment with a gorgeous weather 🙂

  1. What time were you born?

I have no idea what time I was born exactly. All I know it was a day we celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival which we eat mooncakes and light lanterns 🙂 A funny story behind it…My mum and dad went out to celebrated Mid-Autumn Festival and all of the sudden she felt that It was the time when she was going to deliver. For some reason, they both had no idea to call an ambulance. They tried to take a taxi instead, but there was no way they could take a taxi since it was festival and all the taxis were already occupied. After trying hard on getting a taxi, they both eventually realized that they could call an ambulance. Thank God finally they called the ambulance! (Honestly, I wasn’t their first child and I think they should have the experience calling an ambulance. Well, I guess they were too nervous and that was why they forgot lol ) Not long after they arrived the hospital, there I was born to see this beautiful world hehe 😛

  1. Did anyone tell you how attractive you look today?

haha no, been staying home all day long today…I don’t think my parents and grandma would tell me how attractive I look today since they see me every single day. I don’t mind if you tell me how attractive I look today lol 😀 (just kidding)

  1. When was the last time you cleaned your desk?

This morning…felt like my desk deserved to be cleaned today 😉

  1. What is your favourite ice-cream?

To be honest, I can’t pick one. I would say chocolate ice-cream and mint chocolate ice-cream are both my fav (nom nom) 😛

  1. Have you ever met someone who looked just like someone else? What happened?

I don’t think I have…

  1. Do you have a good ghost story to share? Share it now (please)!

Nope…I’m scared actually 😦

  1. What do you really want to get this year?

My own art exhibition and an art studio where I can make large pieces of abstract art hehe 😀

  1. Is there any bread left in the house?

No.

  1. Do all your socks match and are they in your sock drawer like they belong?

Yes, they do 🙂 However, I do adore those who have guts to wear mismatch socks and not scared to show others when trying on new shoes in the store 😀

Thank you all for taking your time to read this post and I totally appreciate it! You all deserve this award and please feel free to post the award on your blog if you are interested. 🙂 I love you all ❤

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

very-inspiring-blogger-award

I am beyond blessed and honorable to be nominated by two of my lovelies Mamamaitri and garfieldhug for this meaningful award. ❤ I couldn’t thank you enough for such a nomination. Please drop them some love to visit their amazing blogs. They not only have an amazing blog, but they also have a wonderful personality.

The rules of this award:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
  2. Display the award on your post.
  3. List the award rules so your nominees will know what to do.
  4. State 7 things about yourself.
  5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
  6. Contact your nominees to let them know you have nominated them. Provide a link to your post.
  7. Proudly display the award logo (or buttons) on your blog, whether on your side bar, ABOUT page, or a special page for awards.

7 things about me:

1. I’m always shy. I might not look like a shy person here on WP, but in person definitely. Remember back when I was a 4-year-old kid who hid under the table for a few hours because I was too shy to say hello to one of my uncles who came to visit my family. Even when I was studying at University, I was usually the one who sat at the back or sat in the corner. But now I’m trying my best not to be too shy by talking to people more. 😉

2. Banana is one of my favourite fruits. It is a staple for my breakfast (Oatmeal with sliced banana) nom nom 😛

3. Somehow I always get spontaneous ideas for whatever I do. Remember back when I got a lot of spontaneous ideas for doing my assignments and answering my exam papers in the past. 😛

4. I always aim to do yoga 5 times a week. 🙂 If I don’t have that much time to commit, I will try to do it at least once a week. Otherwise, my body is like aching or something. I just don’t feel good about it.

5. Blue is my favourite colour. I don’t care what shade of blue it is, I love it all basically unless it looks very unpleasant to me. 🙂

6. I’m 100% Chinese, but for some reason quite a lot of people around me think I look like Thai, Filipino, Singaporean or having mixed ethnicity. I got asked a lot about my ethnicity when travelling to Thailand.  Some of them even spoke Thai to me before they asked my ethnicity during my recent trip to Thailand. 😀

7. I hate to sit on the plane. I just can’t sleep or sit patiently on the plane. I have to walk around 😛 😛 😛

Although the rule of this award is to nominate 15 other bloggers for the award, quite a lot of bloggers are having award-free blogs/ busy doing their own personal things and there are more than 15 bloggers deserve to have this award. As a result, I’m going to break the rule not to name anyone. Please feel free to get this award from my blog and post it on your blog. 🙂

I love you all my inspiring bloggers ❤

Simply answer Dottie’s questions

I’m more than thankful being nominated twice  by  lovely  dottiedaniels . ❤ I got nominated by  her for the Liebster Award this time.  However, I was nominated for the same award before and hence I’m not going to do the whole thing again. I’ll just simply answer her questions.

My answers to the 5 questions she asked:

1. Who is your favorite person (living or deceased)? As mentioned in the previous post “No regrets”  , my grandma is a fearless person who I always look up to. She has inspired me in so many ways and of course she is my favorite person. ❤

2. What is your favorite subject to write about? Life experiences.

3. What is your favorite place in the world? Porto (Portugal) even though I’ve never traveled to before. I know I’ll love it since it is a place where it is always associated with vibrant colors which I’m always a big fan of. 🙂

5. What was the last song you heard? “Set Fire To The Rain” by Adele (she is an amazing singer) ❤

One Lovely Blog Award

7 facts about me:

1. I wasn’t an artist all my life. In fact, I hated drawing and couldn’t draw in the past. When I turned 17 years old, I had to an art class and forced to make some art portfolios for my homework. Even though someone found me having artistic potentials at that time, I still dropped that subject as I didn’t enjoy drawing at that time. However, I found myself fascinated by different art pieces in the past few years. Under an encouragement of a good friend of mine, I started to make art pieces this year only. It is also why you all see the digital artworks my friend and I created.

2. English is not my first language. In fact, I couldn’t understand a single word from my English teacher when I first went overseas for studying because I was one of the laziest kid in the world who didn’t really study. All I did was basically play, eat and sleep. I only started to study hard after I turned 17 years old and it was also the time I went overseas for studying. So, you might my English is pretty weak.  In case you wonder where I went for studying, I actually went to Sydney for studying.

3. I was very allergic to eggs when I was a kid. So, I wasn’t allowed to eat eggs. However, I really love the taste of eggs. Remember one time when I ate ten eggs at a time and got caught by my mom because she found there were tons of eggshells in the bin lol. 😉

4. I love listening to music. I don’t care what language it is. Even though I don’t understand what the song is about, I will still listen to it if I like the music.

5. I was quite overweight compared to those who live in the same country in the past. I lost almost 40 pounds after I started to eat healthy and do yoga few years ago. I’m glad I’m able to maintain a healthy weight from that time until now. I also realized I just ate too much junk food in the past (I still eat junk food from time to time now 🙂 ) and we can do pretty much whatever we want if we put our mind to it.

6. I love to eat vegetables. Sometimes, I can eat a kilogram of it at a time. Although I really love vegetables, I don’t like carrots at all. I’m now making myself to eat more carrots as they are very good for health.

7. My lips are very easy to chap, so i just can’t live without my chapstick. I have to bring it with me wherever I go.
