Liebster Award

Liebster Award

Sometimes I wonder how do the professional bloggers find materials to write, and how do they share something personal without sounding obnoxious or over share? At times, I would be desperate to post something yet not being able to write anything. Since I made the pledge to post things weekly, I’ve been jotting down all the posts that I could create, and yet I still struggle to write sometimes.Thankfully, the Liebster Award encourages bloggers to write more & share some of their favs. Here are some of the rules:

1.You must answer 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you
2. You must list 11 random/fun facts about yourself
3. You must pick 11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions.
4. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
5. You must let the person you’ve nominated know that they’ve been nominated.

Here are the eleven questions asked by Berlinstorm who nominated me:

Who was your favourite teacher in school and why?

I honestly don’t know. In the last year of my high school, EVERY SINGLE teacher were supportive and inspiring. I cannot name just one because they all went above and beyond what they required to, in order to help us do well in the university entrance exam. NOT because they were forced, NOT because we asked them to but simply because they believed in us.

What is your proudest moment in life so far?

When I completed a particular painting.

What is you next move/step in life?

This is a hard question. Mostly because it really makes me reevaluate my own ‘plan’. I never think about the big plan with a specific move in mind, mostly because I try to be prepared and seize an opportunity when it presents itself.

I’d say my big goal in life is to one day live in a warehouse conversion with large windows and enormous paintings. So I’d work towards that.

What are your guilty pleasures?

I don’t have any guilty pleasures.I used to think listening to Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber was a guilty pleasure because they were hated by others; but then I realised that music is subjective, I shouldn’t let other people’s opinion of music dictate my choice.

When do you realise that you were an “adult”

Err….haven’t yet. I’m only 29.

Where is your “happy” place or favorite place to visit?

Any antique stores. One where it’s a LARRRRGE warehouse space. Or an art gallery with a large body of work.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

If I could live anywhere, it would still be Sydney. The more I travel, the more I’m convinced it’s the best place to LIVE. You could work and play in other cities, but there is no better place to grow old and spend time with your loved ones in.

What can’t you live without?

Apart from the necessities, I’d say chocolate.

What is your ultimate life goal?

Live & convert a warehouse into a home.

What do you wish you could do if you had more time?

I’d play more piano, paint more, read more, dance more.

If you could go back in time what era would you live in and why?

I wouldn’t go anywhere. This is the BEST time.

I live in an era where I receive proper education, and as a middle class gets to eat fine food, while travelling to exotic places and see things before it gets destroyed by mankind.

11 Random/Fun facts:

(Everyone have a bunch of things that they can’t do, but I’m going to highlight some of my better qualities by telling you things that I CAN do and the things that I love!)

I can play the piano

I think baking is an art as well a science; so I love recipes that are really specific, like: ‘Add the flour, fold 15 times.’; not ‘Add the flour. Don’t over mix, but don’t under mix either.’

My favourite men’s cologne is Ralph Lauren Safari

There is only one Hercule Poirot, and he is played by David Suchet

I love antique market

I don’t do this often, but I love living alone

I love the feeling of stepping out on winter day, that is so cold it feels like my nose is about to fall off

If I’m ever so fortunate as to have kids and I get a choice, I’d like just one girl

If I can have any dog, I’d pick Welsh Corgis

I have 2 guinea pigs

If I have LOTS of money and I can do whatever I like, I would like to build a school in rural China
