Look What I Got!

So my blogger friend Tara - I pretend we're friends but she doesn't know  - at Always Overthinking It nominated me for  a Liebster Blogging award. Basically it's for bloggers who are new or have less than 200 followers and deserves the recognition. So, I am honored that she thought of me. Liebster is a German word which means a whole bunch of positive stuff so this is like the best award ever! Thank you so much Tara.

There are certain stuff I'm supposed to do upon receiving this nomination. First, I have to state 11 randoms facts about me. Then I have to answer 11 question Tara sent my way. And then I have to come up with 11 questions of my own that my nominees would have to answer when I notify them of course. 

Let's begin with 11 random facts about me, shall we.

1. I've been wearing colored contact lenses for over 6 years and people think they're real and compliment me all the time. I don't always tell them that they're not real. 

2. Movenpick's Passion fruit & Mango is the best ice-cream flavor ever. I'd choose it over chocolate or the other more popular flavors any day.

3. I hate it when things and places are dirty but I hate cleaning up more.

4. If I start something I have this need to go all the way (like if I start cleaning my desk, I'd wanna clean the whole room spotless), so I tend to not start at all.

5. Pregnant women scare me - I'm very sorry. It's not that they look scary, it's just the thought of a person growing inside them and then coming out of them that scares me. My first day at work in 2007, I had to sit in between two pregnant women for over an hour. I was traumatized. 

6. I have watched the F.R.I.E.N.D.S series four times. All 10 seasons. I still watch random episodes all the time. 

7. Growing up freaks me out - if it existed, I'd be in Neverland for sure.

8. I hate breakfast cereals - All kinds.

9. I shaved my head two months ago. Well, my husband did, but I let him. I looked like a child monk for two weeks.

10. Cats are adorable and I love them - but I'm scared of all living things except humans (well, some of those too) so I stay at least five feet away from them and look at them. I also talk to them. Nafew says I'm crazy but I think they like it.

11. Eleven is my favorite number. I got married on 11th February 2011. The date goes like this 11022011 -  I love it!

11th February 2011 - 11022011

Moving on to Tara's questions

1. What's the weirdest/grossest thing you have ever eaten-or at least what other people consider to be gross
That would be Kullhavah, I don't know the English name. It stinks like you wouldn't believe but I think it tastes pretty good. 

2. Have you ever stolen anything?
Nope. Not unless you count when my best friend and I tore out a picture of Hayden Christensen from a magazine in the school library and sneaked it out.

3. What is your favorite book (or the most recent one you liked)
My all time favorite is Millie's Fling by Jill Mansell. The most recent one I liked is 50 Shades of Grey? Whaaat? I liked it ;)

4. What is your favorite country you have visited (assuming you have visited another country). If not another country, what state?
So far I have been to only two countries outside of mine that is India and Malaysia. So Malaysia is my favorite for now, although my dream is to visit the U.S someday.

5. Is it called soda or pop?
Soda sounds right.

6. What do you buy when you go to a movie theater to eat (if anything)?

7. Have you ever peed your pants (or the bed) that you can remember?
Hahahaaa...not since I can remember.

8.  What's your favorite swear word?

9. What's kind of yogurt flavor do you like?
Mixed berries.

10. Do you ever wear socks to bed?
Only if it is really really cold, which is rare here.

11. How do you roast a marshmallow (do you prefer it burned, perfectly toasted, etc.)
Ummm...I've never roasted a marshmallow. I just eat them straight out of the bag :(

Now, here are eleven question for my nominees. 

1. Do you or would you wear crocs? Why?
2. Have you ever been in a physical fight? If yes, please do tell :)
3. What word(s) do you absolutely hate?
4. Have you ever bribed anyone? What for?
5. What was your most embarrassing moment?
6. Do you have a relative that you cannot stand? Why?
7. Given the choice, what movie would you star in and as which character?
8. What is the worst advice you have received and taken?
9. Did you get into trouble as a kid? What was the worst thing you did?
10. If you were a waiter and your customer was being rude, would you spit in their food?
11. How would you like to be remembered when you're gone?

Finally my nominees :D

I am fairly new to blogging so I don't know enough bloggers to list eleven. Also, I couldn't find how many followers some of these bloggers have so if they have more than 200, sorry.  I will list my absolute favorites, of whom Tara hadn't nominated because apparently I'm not supposed to do that. I also want to add Tara but I can't back-tag either :( 

So, here goes...

1. Barbara at Foot Prints in the Sand
2. Trina from Retro Fashion is My Passion
3. OneMommy from There's Just One Mommy

There you go, a Liebster Award to each of you, with much love from me.
