Hindi pa ba kayo nagsasawa sa kakanominate sa akin? Ha ha. Nakakatrauma na kaya. yung tipong tuwing may post sa reader ko ng kung ano anong award ay natatakot akong tingnan ito dahil baka kasali na naman ako.

img_0417

Though pwedeng pwede naman akong tumanggi tulad nung iba at sinasabing award free na yung blog nila eh tinatanggap ko pa rin ang kaawardan na ito dahil natutuwa ako sa Q&A portion.

Kaya heto na naman. Ako ay nagpapasalamat sa nag-nominate sa akin na si Anje ng Punjetry. Pakidalaw po ang kanyang blog para sa iba’t ibang klase ng mga posts, minsan masaya, minsan beast mode pero para makita niyo na din ang kaniyang little joy na si Alessandra 🙂

Heto ang rules:

As usual, inonominate ko na naman yung mga bagong blogger sa paningin ko. And as usual, bahala sila kung sasali sila or dedemahin na naman nila ako gaya ng ginagawa ng iba ha ha. Heto na sila!

Heto naman ang mga tanong ni Anje na sasagutin ko:

 

If you’re not writing, what another passionate hobby do you like doing and why?

Mahilig ako magbasa. Pero dito na lang ako nahilig magbasa sa Dubai kasi noon sa Pinas, wala akong pambili ng libro kahit tag 150 pesos lang no’n yung mga libro ni Bob Ong, di ko kayang bumili. Andami kong hobbies, depende sa mood. Kumanta at maggitara, magdrawing, magtahi ng bag and pouch. Napagtripan ko ding magdrawing sa mugs kaso tinigilan ko nung nawalan na ako ng oven na pagsasalangan nito..

 

Why did you choose WordPress? Why not other blog sites?

Sinubukan ko ang blogspot dati pero medyo naguguluhan ako. Nung masubukan ko yung wordpress, feeling ko idiot user friendly siya.

 

Are you comfortable meeting other bloggers in person?

Oo siguro.  So far, isang blogger pa lang ang namemeet ko in person. Gusto ko nga sana maka meet up yung ibang mga bloggers pag uwi ko ng Pinas kaso, parang pag ginawa ko yun, mawawala na yung mystery.

 

When you started blogging, did you intentionally wanted to write for yourself only or for other people? Or both? Why?

Actualy, di ko naman talaga naiintindihan dati kung ano ang blogging. Ha ha. Narinig ko lang yung word na blog sa isang Marketing staff, tapos sinearch ko kung ano yun and then naisip ko lang subukan. Kaya nung umpisa, nagblog lang ako for the sake of blogging, di ko alam kung para saan ba ang mga pinagsusulat ko noon ha ha.

 

Has blogging changed your life?

Yes, kasi dami kong natututunan.

 

What age did you start writing?

27 years old. Hindi ako maahilig magsulat dati. Hate ko ang essay writing. Essay na sa akin ang dalawang sentences. Minsan sinubukan kong gumawa ng diary, new year’s resolution ba… pero madalas yun from Jan to April lang. Ningas kugon ako eh. Nagsimula lang akong magsulat talaga nung nagblog na ako.

 

What age did you start blogging?

27 years old.

 

What is in it in blogging that keeps you writing more?

Dami ko natututunan, dami kong nakikilala virtually. Mas masaya tumambay sa wordpress kesa sa fb.

 

What is the longest duration you stopped blogging and why?

Hindi naman ako tumigil talaga. Nawalan ako ng gana. Yung tipong isang post lang sa loob ng isang buwan. Feeling ko kasi wala naman nagbabasa ng blog ko at wala namang kwenta pinagsusulat ko. Noon kasi puro rant lang sinusulat ko. Halos 1 year yon na madalang lang talaga ako magpost. Naging active lang ulit ako, Oct last year.

 

Who do you think is the most influential blogger?

Good or bad influence ba ‘yan? ha ha. Paano ba masasabing influential yung blogger? Pag maraming followers? Di ko alam kung sino.  Pero halos lahat naman kayo dito ay nakakaimpluwensya sa akin, in one way or another. May kanya kanyang talent ang bawat blogger dito. Kahit simpleng rant lang ang pinopost or tula, may kanya-kanyang estilo sila sa pagsusulat.

 

Bakit blog log log log log log?

Anong tanong ‘to? LOL

 

 

11 Random Facts About Me:

  1. Hindi ako kumakain ng cheese at beef at hindi ako umiinom ng gatas.
  2. Kung gaano ako kakulit dito sa WP ay ganun din ako in person. Pero pag di ako kilala ng tao, first impression lagi sa akin ay nakaka intimidate ang aura ko. Ang taray ko daw tingnan. Kaya nga walang na-love at first sight sa akin eh. Laging love at second sight. LOL.
  3. Nung nakilala ko ang Rock and Roll, tingin ko sa lahat ng iba pang music ay baduy lalo na yung hiphop at rap o anything similar. Hate na hate ko ang kahit anong may kinalaman sa mga ‘yon.  Pero kung ano talaga ang ayaw mo ay yun ang binibigay sa iyo. Binigyan ako ng hubby na mahilig manood ng FlipTop ha ha ha. Dahil nakikinood din ako, dun ko na naappreciate hindi lang yang mga rap na iyan kundi pati lahat ng klaseng music.
  4. Hindi ako mahilig kumain sa mga buffet restaurants kasi ayoko ng halo-halong lasa ng ulam. Gusto ko isa lang ang ulam. Maximum na dalawa. Ayoko ng iba’t ibang putahe. Pag napipilitan akong magbuffet, isa o dalawang ulam lang talaga ang kinukuha ko.
  5. Matindi akong dapuan ng emosyon. Pag masaya ako sobrang saya, pag malungkot sobrang lungkot. Mapapansin niyo naman sa mga posts ko kung ano ang nararamdaman ko.
  6. Hindi ako marunong umimbento ng kwento. Lalong hindi ako marunong gumawa ng mga sci-fi stories. Hindi ako nakakapagsulat ng something na hindi ko naramdaman. Yung mga short stories ko dito or tula, maraming parts doon ang totoo, naramdaman o nakita ko, dinadagdagan ko na lang ng mga twists at yun na yung mga parts na inimbento ko. Yung mga istorya sa Palengke Chronicles ko, marami doon ang totoo, nilalagyan ko lang ng twist at patawa pero madami doon naexperience ko at nakita ko dahil batang palengke ako.
  7. Bukod sa batang palengke ako, konduktor din ako dati ng jeep. Minsan tagahugas din ng mga parte ng makina ng ten wheeler truck.
  8. Bilang HRM grd ako, paborito kong subject namin nung college ang Beverage  Management kahit hindi ako marunong uminom. Pero gusto ko pag bartending na ang pinag-uusapan. Marunong ako magbato ng bote. DATI.
  9. Gusto ko talagang makakanta ng kahit isang kanta ng Evanescence. Kaso di talaga abot.
  10. Crush ko si Miggy Chavez. Siya talaga si Crush dun sa post ko ha ha.
  11. Crush ko din si Steve Badiola ng Typecast.

nth Liebster Award

Yey! I have another Liebster Award (again???!!!! ha ha) courtesy of Juarla of Keeping Up with the Introvert. I’d like to thank her for such a lovely award and hey! Please do check out her blog! She’s up to a 3-writing-challenges-in-a-day for the whole month.

So, Liebster Award  was created to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them to the blogosphere. So I think it’s a cool way to show appreciation to some of your fave blogs and to introduce newbies as well.

Rules:
•Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you
•Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you
•Nominate 5-11 bloggers that you think are deserving of the award
•Let the bloggers know you nominated them
•Give them 11 questions of your own.

 

These are my answers to Juarla’s questions:

• Why did you start blogging?

Sorry but I’ve said the reason countless times already ha ha and I don’t want to bore people here. Pass please.

• Which of the five senses would you say is the strongest?

Sense of…smell… I guess. 

• What three things do you think most each day?

I don’t even know. It varies ha ha. But most of the time I think about food and coffee.

• If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

Keep off the green green grass of home.

• What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?

Rappelling

• What’s the weirdest talent you have?

I am weird but I don’t have a talent LOL. jk. Instead of talent, can I just say something else that’s weird? I cannot draw a straight line even with the use of a ruler. 

• If you could take only three items with you to a deserted island, what would they be and why?

Kaldero, sandok at kumot. ha ha ha (Cauldron, ladle and blanket). I’m being practical here LOL.

• Favorite album, why?

I actually don’t have any.

• What song sums up your life right now?

Ironic by Alanis Morisette.

• Favorite childhood memory?

This is funny but my favorite childhood memory was my first political exposure when my Uncle brought me to Miriam Defensor Santiago’s Presidential Campaign in Araneta Colliseum back in 1992. I can remember that I did not understand whatever she said because it was all in English. She was wearing a pair of red blouse and skirt. 

• How do you want to be remembered?

I want to be remembered by people around me as the sun that shines on them the day after a cold rainy night or a hot soup that warms up everyone’s empty stomach on a cold rainy afternoon. Ever so dramatic lol but I think the latter suits me well.

 

And so, I would like to nominate these bloggers. I think they are fairly new here and I hope that they could participate.
