Thanks to friendly Elana @ http://elanakhong.blogspot.com for the nomination! (:

It has been slightly over a year since I resumed my blog, giving it a fresh start. Guess it's time for me to reflect the journey. It has been an pretty awesome year long journey full of events that lift up my life! Let me say it all in one breath;  watch and took photograph of awesome international fireworks, visit Tokyo and experience all the cool stuff and glorious food!, experienced a makeover and photoshoot, experienced a scam, joined ButterflyMsia!, made new friends, ate a lot of yummy food, get addicted to flat white - a lot of #cafehopkl and the best for the last: met the love of my life!! *takes a deep breath*

Back to the Liebster Award. When I see Liebster Award, I go.. huh??? Yeap. I have no idea what it is at all and I am sure most of you who first read it are as clueless as me. Haha. I just googled and found a lot of other blog entries of nominated bloggers but nothing official or root of how it began. It remains a mystery!

Liebster is actually a German word. So I looked up the dictionary and it translates to beloved / boyfriend / dearest / sweetheart. Aww.. doesn't it sounds just like the sweetest award?

Basically, what I found out about Liebster Award is that it works more like a chain blog nomination and the nominated will have to answer about 20 questions and then cotinue to pass on this chain award! The rules & regulations have all morph like how a sentence would have changed after being passed through 10 whispers.

 Questions from Elana;

1. Who and what inspired you to start blogging? 
Could not recall who inspired me to start blogging but it was back in my highschool that I learnt the basic HTML coding of web designing which perked me to start blogging.

2. What and which event you have sweet memories and enjoyed the max? 
That would be TFIM - The First International Makeover apparently. It was a great event until I found out that it was a scam! *the look of horror* So, yea, if you know anyone who is about to work for this event or participate in anyway, warn them and spread the news! You can read more about it here.
3. What and which event that you don't enjoyed and feels like its a waste of time?
Hmm.. I would say most of the events are fabulous and I would not have gone for it if I think it is a waste of time, aight? 

4. You think you look best in which color?
Oh wow, I never actually thought about it if you don't count the time when i was young and I thought black makes you look cool. Lol. *Flips through instagram* I think I look best in navy blue! :D  

5. Would you see yourself going vegetarian someday/in future? 
Although I am more of a vege to meat person, I do crave for yummy meaty meals sometimes. So.. doubt I will turn into a full vegan in the near future but I do not mind vegetarian meals every now and then. :)

Used to LOVE playing basketball in highschool and uni but not anymoreeeee! *sad*

Love flat white and my current favourite is VCR which I blogged about here.
