Ain’t that mister mister on the radio, stereo the way you move ain’t fair, you know.
Yes, that’s me breaking into song. Guess what? I’ve been nominated for a blogging award! The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! Wee. Here you go:
I would like to thank Miss Monica for my first blogging award. She’s a kindred soul here in WordPress – she writes mostly about books and things Korean. I haven’t met her in real life (yet) but I’m guessing it will be a pretty interesting meet-up.
So, for the acceptance Q&A portion (I have to answer these so that I can accept the award):
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I’m not a picky eater. I can eat practically anything. Fried crickets. Fried frogs. Balut. Well, not the brains of live monkeys though. That’s just sick.
If you could meet one person who has died who would you choose?
Meaning an already deceased person who may or may not be related to me? Does the person have to have died recently? Hmmm. I’m kinda confused. Anyway, I’d like to meet King David and have a chat with him, if I could. Ask him what it’s like being called a man after God’s own heart. :D
Nightly owl or early bird?
Nighty owl. Currently writing this blog post at 11:32 PM. Will get to writing another one once I wrap this up.
Bare or with make up?
Eyeliner and lipgloss. Sometimes I look like an emo-girl-slash-vampire.
Coffee or tea?
Coffee! I’ve been trying to reduce my coffee intake but my parents gave me a Christmas package which consisted of a quarter year’s supply of coffee! LOL. I love tea, too. Especially the spicy variety.
Forest or beach?
Forest. I like shade. I don’t like the heat much.
Shoes or sandals?
Pretty doll shoes.
Favourite place to travel.
Anywhere cool and breezy. Home! La Trinidad! Baguio City! :D
One food you could never eat.
Like I said, monkey brain – the one that you eat on top of a live monkey. Ergh. Raw turtle is a close second (the scenes in Life of Pi are sooo graphic).
And now for my nominees! I am not sure if this is restricted to WP users. I know that this award is only for women though. Well, the nominees for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers are *drum roll please*:
Miss Eagleinflight: She is creating and being remade. She took up one of my challenges last time – miss, I am anxiously awaiting your completion of the project! Hahaha!
Miss Melancholicbutterfly: The girl who must be named. Your blog is not so secret anymore. Cheers, dearie!
Miss Spontaneoussoul: I love this little lady’s pose and poetry. Her words aren’t boring, they aren’t dull — they are full of life and spontaneity. Keep writing!
Miss Evanstarwen: Miss Evanstarwen is a dreamer I met in Palawan. Her writings contain such beauty that my heart leaps with joy whenever my reader tells me that she has published a new post. :D
Miss Dailysomersault: Another kindred soul! Haha! This may be cheating a little because I don’t think she is using the WP platform. But I met her because she’s a friend and colleague of a good friend of mine. I enjoyed chatting with her those few hours I got to talk with her. I was glad that she kept a blog which I could follow. :D
Now for the 10 questions you must answer in order to accept this award:
- What is your favourite dessert?
- What is the title of the book that you could read over and over and over again?
- What song do you listen to over and over and over again?
- If you could ask God just one question… what would it be?
- Most memorable memory?
- Skirts or pants?
- Bangles or earrings?
- Pen and paper or electronic whatevers (laptops, iPad, etc)?
- Who’s one of the five people you’ll meet in heaven?
- Why do you write?
Rules to Follow:
- Acknowledge the person who passed the award to you and provide their link.
- Include the award logo on your blog.
- Answer the ten questions I posted above.
- Nominate blogs and link those you have especially enjoyed reading. The number you can select is up to you.
- Notify each individual that you have nominated them.
And now, if you didn’t get the Train allusion at the start, I leave you all with this YT vid. Cheers!
