More blog bling for us! ^^
Dear fellow bloggers and followers,
My blog isn’t what it used to be. I miss the days when I could drop by everyone’s pages as often as I’d like, check reader, read posts, like posts, comment so often and personally thank everyone who hit the follow button. I try but if I don’t get to reply asap, don’t take it personally! ^^ My blog used to be really open and personal and just about anything and everything… but over the course of time, no matter how brief, it has evolved into something else. I see photos and writings and I’m quite proud of what it’s become. However, I don’t want it to seem as though I’ve fallen into a pattern and I most certainly do not wanna lose my connection with you. 🙂 I could only hope that with my stories, photos and poetry, I’m keeping some of that connection alive. I’m grabbing this opportunity to Thank You guys again, share more stuff about me and of course, to answer a fellow blogger’s, Caroline Page’s tag. And also to post about a few awards. I barely have time now to respond to awards and stuff, between juggling various photo challenges and writing prompts, but hey, whatever, keep ‘em coming! Love is love. ^^ Gotta give time for love.
RULES OF THE GAME:
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and eleven random facts about you.
3. Answer the questions given to you in the tagger’s post.
4. Create eleven new questions and tag new people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and let them know they have been tagged.
11 Random facts about me:
Ok, I really wish to skip this ^^ Instead you can go to my About Me page where you’ll find a photo and a gazillion facts about me ^^
1. If life was ‘just a bowl of cherries’… which fruit would you rather be..? Tickleberries.
2. Who is your favourite singer? Right now it’s Adele.
3. Snow or Beach? Beach!
4. Did you have a favourite toy when growing up? Did it have a name? Did you take it with you everywhere you went?
Not really my fave toy and I didn’t really carry my toys around. But this one I remember I must’ve always brought with me simply coz it mustn’t be left alone. It’s Angel-gotchi so I didn’t bother giving it a name. Really just ended up as an accessory dangling from my bag.lol Mine was pink, looked like this:

5. What are your favourite things to do on weekends?
Varies. ^^ But one of the things that I usually look forward to during weekends is cooking something yummy side by side with boyfie. We usually talk about what overly ambitious recipes we wanna try out for the weekend… lol
6. Did you have a hobby when you were a kid?
I’ve been reading ever since I can remember. People were always giving me books as presents. But as soon as I’ve exhausted all my age-appropriate books, I went over to mom’s library and began reading adult books. 🙂 I miss those days when I had all the time in the world to read!
7. Are you a sporty type, or more the studious type? Maybe you are both…!
Maybe I’m neither. lol I say studious then 🙂
8. If you were in a raft in the middle of the ocean, who would you like for company?
My boyfriend, of course. Anywhere with him. 🙂
9. Do you keep your birthday cards? Yes.
10. Is life what you expected as a child? God no.
11. Do you have a pet?
Can’t have one.. Here’s a gruesome story for animal lovers, just three years ago when a stray kitty came along.. She had blue eyes and I fell inlove with her.. I gave her milk, kept her warm and made her a bed. The following day, my mother had thrown her out.. but she came back! Me and my mom fought over it… always wanting to win, my mom again had her tossed out somewhere real far and she never came back. Ok, don’t hate her, she’s just worried about my allergies. ^^
But we have a pet! Not really MINE but she’s my brother’s. We used to have 2 Doberman and 1 Pitbull and lotsa craaazy animals for pets when my father was still around. Like when it’s the year of the rabbit, there’s a rabbit. Year of the monkey, he bought a monkey, which lived in a tree outside our house and would grab people’s hair and stuff. People’d drive by just to see him and sometimes he’d.. ah.. pleasure himself.lol and gross. But funny. ^^ Aaaaanyway, there came the time when everyone’s too busy to care for anything or anyone but themselves. Well, until Mikai came along. She’s nothing special, they say, only half Labrador, and my brother wanted to toss her out but I fed her, gave her a bath and we decided to keep her. She’s small but she’s fierce and she’s smart and had definitely proven her loyalty to me more than once! Not talking to her right now though cos she’s currently pregnant out of wedlock >< Seriously, how dare she do this to me

Again, totally fine if you wish not to participate. Your blogs were definitely worth mentioning anyway ^^
Congrats guys! I’m glad we met 🙂
You did so well, kz… 🙂
Poor kitty, and naughty doggy….! 😉
I appreciate what you are saying re “don’t want to lose my connection with you”..
I have become extraordinarily busy of late and haven’t had the time to visit with my on-line friends as much as I’d like. I also don’t want to post as much because of the time constraints… It is a difficult situation, and yet one that we must view honestly. I was becoming quite tired, and spent far too much time on-line when I should have been resting….!
So here’s to balance, kz…. May we all find the perfect fit..! 🙂
to balance 🙂 blogging can be addictive but well, we must look at priorities and rest definitely comes first 🙂
Goodness, a monkey in the yard.! Thanks kz!.
hahaha he got stolen 😦 you’re most welcome! your blog is indeed addictive

Thanks a lot Kz, mentioning my blog I’m really honored – and no I’m not naked now while I’m blogging – always sleep naked, always – but such as I am now online in a break from my work – here are also 7 cute women and another man in the office – they would get a shock if the boss (me) threw clothes because now he blogging… ‘hahahahaha’

Thank you for the nomination. I won’t accept the naked blogger challenge, as I have posted about running to get back into shape, I won’t scare any delicate readers of my blog.
