Hello, how have you been doing?

I’m feeling a little ecstatic right now as I have been nominated for the REAL NEAT BLOG AWARD by Alexandra from You and Me and Cup of Coffee. Do check out her blog!


I have been following and reading her blog for a few months now and well, I’m sorry if I’m saying this right here but, when I started this blog back in 2019 I actually have no intention to improve and keep doing this but as I read more and more of her content, I saw the drive, I saw the commitment, as she starts building her own. It is not mad hustle, this hustle with a heart.

Well, guess what. Yes, I got infected! I cannot say that I got to this point just because of me, because really, this is because of people like Alexandra who, let’s just say added firewood in my tiny bonfire.

For this, I am giving the credit to the people who have been supporting me. Thank you guys! Really, thank you so much! In my own, I cannot get here to where I am now.

And yes, my biggest hug to You and Me and Cup of Coffee. You are an inspiration! Thank you!

My Answers to the Questions from You and Me and Cup of Coffee

1. What is your favorite music genre? Please share your favorite band/singer/song.

Country/Pop and Synth/Pop : Taylor Swift : Lover from the Lover Album – because I’m actually cheesier than cheese.

2. Apart from blogging, what are your passions/hobbies?


3. If you could instantly acquire any skill, what would it be?

Skills from a Pianist – I had keyboard lessons from 10 years ago, I learned how to play a beginner’s version of River Flows in You by Yiruma. Yup here stands a frustrated illusion-ary pianist.

4. What inspired you to start a blog?

Writing Itself – I can’t do news/technical stuffs so, personal blog it is.

5. Have you ever experienced a writer’s block? If so, could you share your tried-and-true strategies to get out of it?

I get writer’s block when anxiety kicks in and the best way how I handle it is, by just letting it be because if I try to face it directly, panic will take over. In the meantime, I immerse myself on pending crochet projects, or binge watch endless perfume reviews on YT!

6. Imagine you’re opening a restaurant. What kind of a restaurant would it be and what cuisine would you focus on?

Italian – I love pasta, let’s do pasta everyday and ginger bread!

7. If you could meet and have a conversation with any person, alive or dead (let’s assume time travel exists), who would it be and why?

My Bullied High School Self – because she almost gave up

    1. Hello, you just have to post a blog. The title is Real Neat Blog Award, and in your post you have to mention who nominated you, then you have to answer the 7 questions I gave (1. Which of your blog posts is your favorite? – like this) then at the end of your post, you will nominate others. It’s like a chain post where if you get nominated, you will answer the questions then nominate others. My 7 questions are posted before the names of the nominees. If you’re still confused, ask me again. 😊

    1. Hello, thank you for taking the time to read this post. I sincerely appreciate it! Yes, I do crochet, not an expert though! I hope I can also try that, cross stitching, it looks like painting but with the use of threads. Interesting! Cheers and wish you well! 😊
