Liebster Award

I was really thrilled to find out that Simply At Home Mom has nominated Princess and the Rock for the Liebster Award! What is the Liebster Award? I believe some of you may ask, because I was clueless about the title too. Hence I decided to find out more instead of accepting the award blindly.

I found out that this award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers and to receive it, the nominee needs to:
  • share 11 random facts about herself to receive the award,
  • answer 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated her,
  • create 11 new questions for those she intends to nominate for the award,
  • nominate 11 blogs with less than 200 followers,
  • go to the new nominees' blogs and tell them about the nomination of the award and provide a link back to her post,
  • No tag backs.

I italicized the word "award" because it is not a true award, in sense that there is no panel of judges involved and no official website. However I appreciate the notion of giving recognition and support to up and coming bloggers to encourage them to continue blogging. Thank you, Simply At Home Mom!

11 random facts about me:

  1. I have Alektorophophia - fear of feathered animals.
  2. My husband thinks I had an abnormal childhood because I had a grand total of 6 toys as a child, visited the library for recreation and bought my assessment books and complete them on my own (without prompting). In a word, NERD.
  3. I was interested in becoming a fashion designer but ended up as a counsellor instead.
  4. I design jewellery now. :)
  5. I get a kick from cutting my hair real short when it has grown very long.
  6. I wished I had learnt ballet.
  7. I suffer from buyer's remorse quite often, especially on big ticket items.
  8. I hate to be "forced" to buy bottled water in restaurants.
  9. I need at least one coffee every day.
  10. My favourite part of a holiday is breakfast - a sumptuous and unhurried one.
  11. I have the urge to bite the Rock because he is so irresistably chubby and adorable.

11 questions Simply At Home Mom has for me:

  1. What is your favourite food? Yaki Onigiri from Kazu Sumiyaki
  2. Do you have a favourite quote? “Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.” Ken Robinson
  3. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Really difficult one, anywhere really, as long as it's couple time sort of holiday with my husband. If I really have to name one it'll be Italy... for the food!
  4. What do you miss most about being a child? Long sleeping hours! Haha!
  5. What is something you learned in the last week? Too much to pinpoint one. Everything about blogging really, there is so much to learn (especially for a somewhat techno-dino like me)!
  6. If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be? The Princess' wedding because I am really curious about who God has in store for her (she has been praying for a good man like Daddy). :)
  7. What chore do you absolutely hate doing? Ironing the clothes
  8. What sound do you love? Babies laughter and voices.
  9. If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Finish all the housework with a wave of my hand!
  10. What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity? Eating, I enjoy good food with great company.
  11. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? Sewing, I bought a new sewing machine. 

Blogs I am nominating (in no particular order and if you have more than 200 followers, my bad, I have no way of finding out how many followers in some blogs):

  1. Travelling in diapers 
  2. Oh, My Darling (love the vintage feel of the blog)
  3. Wild shores of Singapore (see unvisited parts of Singapore here)
  4. A toast to Wonderland
  5. Kopi Kids (how about a daddy blog?)
  6. Teaching Our Own
  7. Maison Missyrisc (a huge dose of creativity here)
  8. Adventures of Bento Cat (Ready for some cuteness overdose?)
  9. Neighbourhoods (nostalgia...)
  10. Code Red Hat
  11. Her Mommyness

11 questions I have for you:

  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. What is your favourite food?
  3. Gold or silver?
  4. What are you coveting right now?
  5. What is your favourite book as a child?
  6. Which movie made you cry?
  7. What is your ideal vacation?
