Liebster Award Nomination

4/14/2015 12:37:00 AM

I was having second thoughts about posting this since it has been months ago that Zarrah from  'thebandwagonchicnominated me for this award. I was so consumed on getting things done for graduation by then and got no ample time to update for the month of March - not even a single post. And luckily, after years of labor, I finally reap the fruits of success which I have planted with hard work and sacrifices - GRADUATION DAY. Hooray for me! I can now continue updating my blog and keep posted with the stuff emerging on the blogosphere. 

"Liebster Award" is somewhat like of a chainletter  within the world of bloggersChainletter that won't give you bad luck or cause you to death if you ever tried to 'break-the-chain', but rather bring the blogging community together, allow one blogger to know one. 

What do I do if I get nominated? 
You'll be asked to answer 11 questions, depending on the person who nominated you and share your answers via blog post. You then nominate 11 fellow bloggers and ask them 11 questions as well. 


Thanks Zarrah for this. So here's the question I've been asked to answer. 

1. Why do you blog?

I blog because I want to have something to go back to when things go old and grey, when things just become some distant memories and have a place where I can develop my writing potentials. I want to record my travel experiences, my thoughts about something and share valuable things I think I shouldn't just keep within myself. 

2. What’s your life before blogging?

I was a student way back then. Up till now, I have this deep desire to be a writer. 

3. What other stuff you are doing besides blogging?

Reading - my favorite past time. I am also trying to learn photography and web designing. 

4. Who is your inspiration?

Aside from those famous bloggers I look up to, I have been my own inspiration. I aspire to be the best person I can be, the best version of my ownself. 

5. What’s the best thing about blogging?

The best thing about blogging is that it gets me into the habit of improving my own writing skills and styles and I tend to seek for perfection in every post. Through blogging, I've got to know things which I never thought it even existed before and I've got the chance to socialize with other bloggers - not maybe physically but virtually, thus enlarging my network. 

6. What’s your most visited blog?

7. What kind of blog you are most interested in?

Travel Blog
Inspirational Blog

8. Are you blogging full time or are you studying or working?

I am working. I blog in my spare time. 

9. Give me one inspirational quote that gives you the motivation to write/blog.

“Life is inherently risky.  There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.”
―Denis Waitley

10. If you can swap lives with somebody else famous or just sort of someone normal people, who would it be and why?

It never occurred to me of swapping lives with any of my favorite famous persons or any of just normal person either. We know nothing about their private lives and I wouldn't think I am ready enough to experience things they once did. Yes, maybe I am lusting over the things they're showing on cam. Maybe I want the things they have but it's not enough to want me live their life. 

Ooops,but I remember I dreamed about being the girl version of Harry Potter. Maybe, this would count? The scene from the book/movie excites me to experience what it was like - Hogwarts, the magic spell, catching the snitch and ALL. 

11. Describe your blog site in one word.


11 Things About Me

1. I'm an ultimate POTTERHEAD. 
2. My favorite book is the Harry Potter series. I just love the magical mysteries it unfolds in every chapter. 
3. My favorite poet is Lang Leav. I love poetry a lot, though I don't have that fair exceptional writing prowess within me, I admire them to death. 
4. I believe that everything happens for a reason. Eventhough we cannot see the whole point for now, someday, everything will make perfect sense. 
5. I want to go bungee jumping and zip lining. 
6. I am a K-pop lover, specifically FT Island. I am a primadonna.   
7. I have 9 best real friends. 
8. I am currently into mastering the 'two-letter-word' in scrabble. (Hannahbear, your still the best!)
9. I can't swim to save my life. All I can do is float, but I've been trying to learn everytime we go to beaches or pools. I curse the thought of just staying at the corner of the pool, or just using the kiddie pool for good.
10. My favorite dessert is cheesecake and mango float
11. AND lastly, this is what most of my friends protest about me. I sleep like a LOG. You need to shake me badly just to wake me up.

I think that's it. Below are the bloggers I want to know things about them and answer my own set of questions.  Here you go.. 

Hannah of ijuandercebu
Jacinth of laagpamore
Jeff of gamepharm
Mimi of thefoxyheroine
Kie of wildheartsandgreentea
Cheryle of cherylespeaks
Joy of joybernardo
Clarisse of nondreamgirl
Aian of aianananalalala

Here's your questions..
1. Why do you blog?
2. What encouraged you to start blogging?
3. What's your favorite book?
4. Movie: Romance, Action or Comedy?
5. Rain. Love it or Hate it?
6. What is your dream place to visit?
7. What genre of music do you like?
8. What is your favorite past time?
9. Who inspires you the most?
10. Do you ever get “writer’s block,” and, if so, how do you deal with it?
11. Describe your blog in one word.

  1. Oh! 11th answer is so true! We've been roommates since first year collage. Remember Room G girls? Or should I say the breakfast late comers who can't keep their ass out from bed. Answer 8, practice makes perfect! You should join the scrabble team and bring home the bacon on the next scrabble competition. The Non-Prod team will love you, especially M'Nic. Overall I love all your answers Ray :) And oh! That first picture there, "chix kaayo uy". And this Liebster award, kind of interesting and somehow amusing from the answers you got to know from other bloggers. This is sort of personal post that is worth reading. And I was being nominated. Haha. Let's see if I could have time.

    - Hann

  2. "using the kiddie pool for good."

    That was cute! hahahaha I never knew ...

    - laagpamore

  3. Thank you for this, Almera! I'll post mine soon. We've got a lot of things in common! Haha. I'm a Potterhead, but I've yet to continue reading the remaining books. I haven't really had the time yet :( I'm a kpop lover, too, but I don't listen to the newer groups these days. I'm around in the 2012 era, and I'm a huge VIP! :D I also can't swim but my boyfriend patiently teaches me every time we go swimming, so I am learning indeed. Haha.

    We've got the same favorite desserts!!!!! Cheesecakes and mango floats are the best <3 Maybe we should hunt around Cebu and look for the best resto where they sell these? Haha. I'm really looking forward to meeting you! :)
