Which is your favorite post from my blog?

Stop Caring.

If you could bring back anyone from the dead, who would it be? Why?

Now here are Mab’s questions and my answers:

1. What is your favorite pet?

Dogs, dogs, dogs! I’ve been bitten by dogs like more than five times when I was younger but I really love having a pet dog. I took care of all our dogs back home since me and my brothers were still kids. Both of them like cats and birds so the dogs are all mine. ๐Ÿ™‚

2. What is your favorite snack?

I love food so it’s not easy to choose a favorite but at the moment I am addicted to pajeon.

3. Which place in your house do you like the most?

4. What is your biggest hobby besides blogging?

5. If you were able to possess magic, what kind of magic would it be?

Black magic! Witchcraft! Haha!

6. What is your biggest wish?

Hmmm… right now I wish I’m rich because there are a lot of things I want to do that requires a lot of money like building homes for the homeless, creating workplaces where jobless people can work and earn money, and other stuff where I can be of help to other people.

7. Would you like your blog to be your job and why?

I always mention I’m not a writer, I’m far from it though I sometimes seriously wish I am. So I never really considered blogging to be my job. But then, who knows?

8. What did you like the most in 2017?

The times I did things for the first time like breaking my “personal” rules.

9. What would your perfect holiday be like?

Somewhere far from all the hustle and bustle of cities. A cabin in the woods is ideal. Winter and snowing. With friends and family. Lots of food and booze. But no internet so everyone will talk with each other. Focus on each other present at that moment. No instagramming, twittering or facebooking!

10. What is the meaning of education?

I think, any enlightening experience is education.

11. How did you create the name of your blog?

Well, well, well… This. Is. Really. Amazing! Thank you so much Abdul for nominating me! Sorry for doing this very late, I’m very busy at work most of the time but here it is! To my readers who haven’t discovered his blog yet, do visit it here. Lots of interesting things to read from there. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Rules:

  1. Create a post thanking the person who nominated you, provide a link to their blog.
  2. Include award graphic.
  3. Answer the questions provided.
  4. Make a new set of ten questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. Nominate 5-11 upcoming or recently followed bloggers and share your post with them so they see it.

Abdul’s questions and my answers:

1. Did you ever felt you were just going to die? What was your last wish?

Getting drunk is fun but there was one occasion where I felt like I had alcohol poisoning. I was vomiting for an hour or so in the bathroom, I don’t know, it was painful and crazy, I must’ve called and prayed to all the saints I knew back then to please relieve me from the trouble I’m into. I did feel like I was gonna die then and I’m not so sure what happened after. When I woke up, I was still in the bathroom. ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t remember having any last wish or something at that time except that I’ve been praying to just let the vomiting/pain stop.

2. Have you ever tried eating food sitting on the floor instead of dining table? Does it feel more comfortable to sit on the floor and eat?

Yes, I’ve tried eating sitting on the floor several times before but no, it’s not that comfortable for me. I can do it again but I still prefer eating on a dining table.

3. You receive a call, and the speaker says,โ€ XYZ (The person you hate the most) Just diedโ€, Will you forgive that person or keep holding the anger till the end of your life?

Well, I think, if I ever get to receive a call like that, I’m pretty sure I have long-forgiven that person already. Sure I do hold a grudge for a while but I let it go just the same. Chances are it might make me feel sad hearing the news.

4. You are deeply in love with a person, And he/she call you suddenly out of no-where and says,โ€I Love Youโ€. What will be your response?

I don’t know, I’d probably be lost for words.

5. While traveling, you forgot your bag in the Bus, Train etc. Everything is in your bag even your mobile phone, whatโ€™s the very first thing you are going to do?

Cry. Just kidding! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hmmm… I need to stay calm first of all and think of what I have to do next.

6. Kill One and save 1000, and the one to kill is your best friend. What will you do?

Sorry, best friend… yeah, kill one! If one needs to die for a thousand to thrive, then so be it. (I hope my best friend doesn’t get to read this. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

7. On a vacation, you lost your memory โ€“ At what place can i find you?

*(Places you visit regularly)

If not in a library, very likely in a restaurant.

8. The leader OR The follower (The lion Or The lamb)?

Very likely the leader. ๐Ÿ™‚

9. A Coffee with a stranger Or Conversation with a known person?

Oh! I’m on the fence here. Hmmm… there are definitely people I’ve known for quite some time now that I would really love to talk to all the time but having coffee with a stranger is very interesting, too, which actually just happened last Friday. ๐Ÿ™‚ So at the moment, I’d choose coffee with a stranger.

10. To create your own story (HOW)? OR be someone else story (WHY)?

Definitely create my own story. How? I still have to figure that out! ๐Ÿ™‚

Liebster Award #3

Many thanks to Sameera for nominating me for my third Liebster Award! Do check out and enjoy this very young lady’s blog here.

download (1)

The Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger that nominated you.
  2. Answer the questions from the blogger who nominated you.
  3. Nominate 5-11 blogs/bloggers.
  4. Ask the bloggers 10-11 questions.

Here are Sameera’s questions and my answers:

One thing that you would like to change in your life.

Hmmm, this is difficult. There are some things I’d like to change but I think altering them would also change the rest of my life so I’d rather not. However, I’d like to say that I’d consider being less-friendly if I could.

What would you do if you are about to lose everything in your life?

Now this is even more difficult. Hmmm… well, what should I do? What can I do? I’d probably let it all go at that moment, think about the loss and feel it, then work my ass to retrieve back the things/people I’ve lost that matter and live a better life in order not to lose them again.

Advice you would like to give to me about my poems.

As I always mention, I don’t think I’m in the position to give advice to writers/bloggers but just keep on writing (according to my writer friend), I think you’d learn as you write more.

The person who influenced you the most.

My parents. They’re two very different individuals and I wonder how they’ve managed to stay together for thirty-nine years (and counting) but they instilled in me moral values that helped me learn and grow in every way.

Any adventurous thing you would like to share.

I find it really very adventurous trying every kind of food I see wherever I am and the best food adventure I had was in Hanoi, Vietnam. You’ll never run out of something new for your taste buds. ๐Ÿ™‚

Books you would like to read.

There are tons of books I’d like to read and I still have more than 50 unread books on my shelves! Yay!

If you had one last chance to change anything what would it be?

Same answer to the first question.

How you came across writing blog?

I’m not sure I understand this question right but if you meant how I decided to write a blog, well, it was purely out of boredom two years ago…

What inspires you to write?

I usually only get to write when I feel too much. I’m no writer/blogger. It just so happens that some thoughts come into mind and I just write them.

Apart from writing what else you love to do in life.

I love eating, reading, playing tennis and making other people’s lives miserable. Haha! Just kidding about the last one! ๐Ÿ˜€

Liebster Award #2

This is a much delayed response to Ocean Hayward but I’m still very grateful for this Liebster Award! Wow! Another Liebster just means so much. This is so sweet! Thanks a lot, Ocean! Visit her blog and find lots of great things there! ๐Ÿ™‚

liebster-award-nomination

The instructions for accepting the Liebster are:

  • Create a new post thanking the person who nominated you, link their blog and insert the award graphic.
  • Answer the questions provided to you, share a little bit about yourself.
  • Develop a new set of questions for your nominations to answer.
  • Nominate 10 others and share your post with them so they see it.

So… here are her questions and my answers:

What advice would you give to young writers/ new bloggers?

Oh I donโ€™t think Iโ€™m the right person to give advice to young writers/new bloggers. I’m a newbie, too!ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

How did you learn how to read and write? I honestly donโ€™t remember a time trying to learn how to read/write, really. What I can recall is that I always read with my older brother most of the time.

What made you want to start writing/ creating? There was a really sad time when I was still in grade school and writing served as the outlet for my feelings/emotions. Iโ€™m able to write when Iโ€™m feeling too much.

If you had to switch jobs, what career would you pursue and why? I’ve always wanted to be a lawyer and politician. I think I can lead and I have a brilliant plan on how to improve the current situation in my country. (Haha!)

Would you rather be able to move things with your mind or be able to talk to animals? Even though being able to talk to animals sounds fun to me, I guess Iโ€™d rather be able to move things with my mind. Iโ€™ve got some ideas running in my head already. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What is the most ridiculous thing youโ€™ve ever done? Hmmm… I think peeing on the rooftop because I was drunk and lazy to go to the bathroom. (?)

Referring to the television showย Freaks and Geeks,ย when you were in high school were you a freak or a geek? A freak definitely.

Name one fashion fad that you secretly still love and are waiting for it to come back into style. I really liked to wear Tretorn shoes before but I don’t see them nowadays (well, I don’t see them here…) but I would love to wear one again specially the ones I used to have back in high school.

Your first thought that comes to mind when someone mentions, โ€œCanada.โ€ Snow and the maple leaf. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tell us about the funniest thing that ever happened ever. EVER. (I mean it. Ever.) I once locked my classmates and the teacher inside the classroom when I was in 5th grade. They weren’t able to go out until lunch break and I later found out that some were crying and going crazy being locked up. It’s probably scary for them but was really funny for me because I’ve never done anything like that before and I’m not sure why I did it but it was real fun at the time. And oh! My teacher’s face when she saw me later, pure pleasure! ๐Ÿ˜€

Now the Liebster awardees are :

  1. NS
  2. Aishwarya
  3. A Not so Jaded Life

  5. Lunarian Thoughts
  6. Priti C
  7. Silhouette
  8. Queenyasaaawrites

  2. What’s your personal heaven?
  3. When God asks you while standing in the gates of heaven why should He let you in, what would you say?
