The Liebster Award

My former workmates Sandie and Dani both nominated me for The Liebster Award given to up and coming bloggers with 200 or less followers.

The rules: once tagged, share 11 facts about yourself. Answer 11 questions from the one who nominated you (I’ll be answering 22 because I had two nominations). Then ask 11 questions and nominate 11 bloggers.

Facts about me

Questions from Sandie:
Which artist would you like to see play live (if you haven’t already) and why? What’s your favorite song by him/her/them?

Not worrying about your needs because your parents will provide them for you.

  1. Answering it here!

    1. Being able to give back and give out to the world as much good as you can. I think that’s the essence of life in general.
    2. Ooh. I have to think about this pa.
    3. Neither. 🙂
    4. Oh I’d go crazy with it! Baka magtira lang ako ng 10% for savings. Haha. (Sira poise.)
    5. You have to work your ass off to get what you want.
    6. Compliments!
    7. We don’t do a lot of mother-daughter talks. Lol. But I learned, through how she lives her life, that if you sincerely love someone, there’s no offense you can’t forgive. 🙂
    8. I’ll hug him in the warmest, most motherly way possible.
    9. We are, by nature, curious beings. We only turn to ignorance because we are, by nature, afraid of pain.
    10. Haha “desperate things”.
    11. I don’t have “one biggest mistake” but I want to make right every missed opportunity to appreciate the people in my life. 🙂
