Tadaaaaaa.  I’ve won another grammy, or it sure feels like it.  Ok, I’m sure that’s a different feeling but still can’t feel anything but happy to receive an award by a fellow blogger – Ada!


Thanks for it!  🙂  Wordpress blogging definitely feels like I’m part of an online community.  Am really enjoying it!  Thanks for being part SPARKLE BUBBLE everyone 🙂



The Liebster Award

I’ve just been nominated for this award.  Thank you so much Ginger!  You can check out her stylish blog about make up, nails and fashion.  It really makes me happy to receive random blog awards as I am still a new blogger.  I really enjoy being part of the blog-os-phere (wouldn’t that be an interesting term?)  After saving this as a draft – I got another nomination from the Wanderer.  You can check out her blog too! Thank you so much!  This is making me feel like I’ve won the Blog Grammy’s or something..  If only they came with trophies. HAHAHAHA!


Here are the rules: (Thanks to copy and paste I’m taking them from Ginger!)

1. Each nominee must link back to the person that nominated them.
2. Answer the 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.
3. Nominate 10 other bloggers you like and who have less than 200 followers.
4. Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
5. Let them know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them!

What is your favourite quote?
“Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more thanI have seen.: -Benjamin Disraeli

Who is your favourite author?

To be completely honest I don’t have one anymore.  After doing almost 2 years of Law school I could never imagine having to read again!

What is a song that has a lot of sentimental value for you?

It’s not in English! It’s a Hindi Song – Aas Pass Kuda

If you had to name one essential beauty product, what would it be?

My Inglot Foundation and Black Pencil Eyeliner.

Do you prefer the country side or the city?
I prefer the city for living as that’s all I know!  From Japan to Singapore to Sydney to London!  If I lived in the countryside, I’d probably die of boredom!

What is the saddest film you have ever watched?
One of the sweetest movies would be PS I LOVE YOU and THE VOW!

If your house was on fire, what would be the three items you would save?
Items? Hmm.. My passport, phone (all photos are in there!) money?  Actually I have been in a situation where in an Earthquake we had to leave the house ASAP as it was going to crumble into pieces (it didn’t in the end).  However, being put in that situation teaches you that you don’t take anything with you when the time actually comes.  Your safety and your family’s safety is what is utmost important and you run to safety together.

What is your favourite season of the year and why?
I love Spring and Autumn.  I don’t like extreme weathers such as severe summers or winters!

If you could do any job in the world, what would you choose?
I’d love to endorse my own brand.

Everyone has something that comforts them when they are ill, what is it that makes you feel better?
When I lived with my Mom in Sydney she cheered me up with hot soup and just being there.  I do miss the pampering!! But my husband is really sweet (although he cannot cook and probably will never enter the kitchen but he always comes to check to see how I am doing) 🙂

Now I’m going to nominate other bloggers for this award 🙂  Please answer the same questions as I just did.  I’m actually pretty lazy to come up with new questions as these work just fine.  I found them pretty random and different from other award questions so will give them back to you 🙂 Also many of my nominees have a huge following but yet they deserve it!

B’s Blog Award: Versatile Blogger! YIPPEEEE!!


My second blog award – I was so excited to get this!!!  Thank you Laurie!! You can check out her website here.  I almost feel like she’s my soul-blogger-sister as we seem to have so many things in common – that are kind of *ahem* WEIRD. hahahaha! 🙂 So do check out her blog!!

Blog checklist:

1. Display the Award Certificate on your website/blog.

Yeap yeap yeap!

2. Announce your win with a post. Make sure to post a link back to me as a ‘thank you’ for the nomination.

Thanks Laurie!  You can never thank someone enough. 🙂

3. Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.

Look below!

4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you have linked them in the post.

Yes will do!

5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

(Going to write a list soon – I can think of at least 20 interesting things! LOL!)

The lucky nominees are

1) Charayanam – Healthy Vegan Recipes

2) Diana –  Dolce Diana

3) Christine – Part of my world

**That’s all I can think of. These are my go to blogs. Well and of course LAURIE’S BLOG, but I don’t think I can present the award back to her.  That’s sort of like returning a birthday present to the person that gave it to you.**

Interesting facts about me:

1)  I find it hard to be normal.  I think being normal is weird.

2) I love going to every Hardrock Cafe in all different countries and collecting their tees.

3)  I order the same thing in my favourite restaurants each time after contemplating about trying something new.  I LIKE TAKING GUEST to my fav restaurants to try their food as that enables me to try new things without risking the disappointment of forgoing my order!  HAHA!

4)  I believe I am a celeb of my own life.

5)  I love to dream.  Aim for the moon and even if you fall – you will reach the stars.  I believe that.  I’m a believer, an idealist.

6)  I completely hate negative people who drain my positivity. GO AWAY GO AWAY GO AWAY!

7)  I wish I could eat all the healthy food in the world but cheese gets in my way.

*OMG – I just got started.  There’s really just so much more to me 😉

Really happy with this award….! Thank you 🙂

xx B
