Liebster Blogger Award

Thank you to all those who have been nominating me for a blogger award. Seriously, making such posts are so much fun! It allows me to be more human to those who read this blog as I disclose fun facts about me.

I've had various award nominations in the past but was never able to get around to posting as I have been very busy trying to figure out my life. So now, every time I get nominated for such, I get excited to do it. Hopefully, I am not a boring person to you and that you enjoy learning more about me.

Here are the rules of this award:
Post 11 random facts about yourself.
Answer 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
Nominate 11 small bloggers to answer your questions.

11 Random things about me:
Saying more things that I have said on this post is going to be difficult. I am not sure if there is anything more I can say about that is interesting but okay, I'll try:

  1. I am a middle child - I have an older sister and a younger brother.But I always say that I don't have the "middle child syndrome." They say that middle children lack attention and they tend to be rebellious. I am just proud to say that I am not like that (thankfully). :)
  2. Running Man is seriously my favorite TV show - I love how funny this reality show is and how creative the writers are. I also like the fact that the permanent cast are like a family. I just find it really funny! The best way to end a stressful day for me is watching an episode of this show.
  3. I used to love dancing - I am not really sure what happened but I suddenly found myself very busy and I stopped. I used to be very active in dancing activities in elementary school but I guess I never really pursued it. Dancing was just a hobby that I enjoy and not something that I am very passionate about. But sometimes I do miss dancing so now I use it as a form of working out.
  4. I enjoy eating alone - sometimes I find comfort in eating alone. I just like the calmness of it and the serenity it gives me.
  5. I don't watch TV - I don't remember the last time I really watched a television show. I do turn the TV on when I have dinner but I don't really watch. It is just a habit of having something going on in the background when I eat. I watch Running Man on my ipad through this app called Dramot. It has the complete episodes without commercial breaks! 
  6. I like to spend my Sundays lazily - these days, I find I enjoy spending my Sundays lazily. I just surf the internet, watch Running Man or any Korean drama, listen to French cafe music or write an article for this blog. And then in the evening I will drink tea before I sleep, read a book and put on a facial mask. The best day of the week for me!
  7. I daydream a lot - I may be too old for daydreaming about my crushes but hey, I am still a girl whose heart flutters for cute/handsome boys! Haha!
  8. I like to clean my room and keep it organized - I hate it when my room is cluttered and messy.
  9. I sometimes wish I am closer to my siblings than we are - I used to be really close with my sister but when we separated rooms, we had our own lives. And you know how it is with adolescents who like to spend their days with their friends than with their siblings, right? We do talk sometimes but not as much as we used to. My brother and I on the other hand talk a lot but we are not the clingy type. We just talk but we don't hangout with each other and all those things siblings who are close with each other do. But I do wish the three of us can do that.
  10. Haruki Murakami and Agatha Christie are my favorite authors - I like the former for his supernatural, out of this world stories and the latter for the mystery and mind-boggling murder tales.
  11. I am seriously considering backpacking - Yes, I am 80% determined to do this for a month. I just need to save money and then I'll resign and just go somewhere for a month to do some soul searching.

Here are the 11 questions that I want my nominees to answer:
1. What can you say about the LGBT community? I am glad that there is this community where people who are often marginalized can find comfort. I have gay and lesbian friends and they seldom get criticized and ostracized because of their preference. In this day and age, I think people should be more open-minded. I am glad they have this community they seek refuge in.
2. Are you open with having gay friends? Of course!
3. If you were to wish for the most perfect date, who would you want to be with? Lately, I find myself mesmerized by Lee Jong Suk. Yep! I have so many Korean celebrity crushes but he's just stuck in my head lately and having a date with him would just be perfect!
4. What will you wear in your perfect date? A white dress. I just find white to be very flattering on any skin color and body shape. It is also very elegant and classy.
5. Do you have pets? Yes.
6. How do you show your love to your pets? I caress them and play with them.
7. How often do you retouch your make-up (if you do)? Only during lunch break and before I go home.
8. What one make-up product can you not live without? BB cream. It has now become like underwear to me - cannot go out of the house without it.
9. What is your lazy day outfit? An oversized button-down, shorts, flats.
10. What song are you fond of listening while travelling? I am not listening to any song when traveling except when my company wants to sleep. And if that happens, I listen to just whatever I have on my playlist. But if you are referring to traveling to/from work or just some random place, then I don't listen to music at all. 
11. Do you find Channing Tatum hot? Of course! Who doesn't?????

My 11 questions for you:
  1. Why are you a blogger?
  2. If you have $1 million right now, how would you spend it?
  3. If you can have a super power, what would it be?
  4. If you suddenly find yourself stranded in an island, what are the three things you will need to survive?
  5. Do you consider social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter important in your life? Why?
  6. Can you live without your mobile phone for one day?
  7. Do you prefer a large group of friends or a small one? Why?
  8. What are your thoughts about pre-marital sex?
  9. Do you think sex is still taboo these days?
  10. What are you most afraid of?
  11. What is your proudest moment?
