I See. I Like. I Blog.
A big bIG BIG TERIMA KASIH to L of http://shoot2blog.wordpress.com/2014/04/06/ive-been-nominated-for-the-liebster-award/comment-page-1/#comment-93 who has graciously put up Duniyaku on the nominees list a few of days ago. And lil’ ol’ me have been floating on air ever since. Heh.
I’ve decided to accept the award (again, thank you very much, L!) and now, I will answer the questions posed by L:
What do you like about blogging?
Blogging, to me, is like what a lollipop does to a restless kid strapped in the back seat of a car: it calms me down, soothes the soul and transports me into a world far, far away from the maddening office and court-room crowd.
What inspires you to blog?
What motivates me depends very much on my mood and what I’m feeling at the given moment. I also find inspiration in other people’s blogs, in books, in nature. And oh, the Daily Prompt and the Weekly Photo Challenge help a lot, too!
What has been the proudest moment in your life so far?
Frankly, I am not really a “proud person”. I have always accepted myself as a person God intended me to be. I’ve made many mistakes in my life, and I know there will be many more mistakes to be made for as long as I’m alive. I can only hope what I do or say in future does not bring irreparable damage to myself and, God Forbid, to others around me. Nevertheless, underneath all the past mistakes, there is one thing that has brought me the biggest joy and that is, growing up to be a mature and responsible daughter/companion/friend to my aging mother. When she lost her husband (my father) to cancer 8 years ago, she was devastated. I then decided to move back in with her so that I can be with her. I know she misses him still, but she now smiles a lot more than she did back then. It warms my heart when I know I made her smile. It warms my heart to hear her laugh again. Every time she looks at me with that smile on her face, I get that tingling feeling inside that makes me stand tall and say “You did good, girl. You did good.”
If you could spend up to a week in your life sharing with a person or people you love, who would you spend it with (living or dead)?
My mother, of course! And I’ll tell you why. She makes a mean mee kari (curry noodles). Seriously 🙂
What is the one thing you would take along with you when you leave home, other than your phone?
My water bottle. It goes with me just about every where: to the office, the supermarket, in my car, on the plane…you name it! And what’s in it, you wonder..? My favorite drink: sparkling mineral water with a slice of lemon!
What is your favorite activity in public?
Singing, and pretending to be a rock star in a sold-out concert hall! LOL!!
If you had a magic lamp, what would be the one wish you wish for?
What, only one? Heh. Well let’s see now… I wish to get three more wishes! ;p
