Blogging Community: Thank You

Holy macaroni!


lovelyblogaward1Blog of the Year Award banner 600sweet2

I would like to extend my warm thank you to Felicia at Cooking Up a Storm, Dish by Dish, Danny at gotasté, Cathie at The Cathie Barash Blog, A at Dressed in My Closet, Veena at Vina’s Delicious Recipes!, and Chef Doru for the nominations of their well-deserved awards.

I have been blogging for about 3 months now (but seem just like yesterday). No doubt, it has been an incredible adventure. Being a part of this beautiful blogging community opens my eyes to a whole new world of inspiration, talent, and incredibly ahhhhh-mazing people.

Doing what I like is freedom. Liking what I do is happiness. And I am happiiiiii. Happy to have come across you and exchange stories of our own. I wish to continue this incredible adventure, with you, you beside me. Yes, you, who is reading this. Because you are the one and only lovely beautiful REALITY (real, energizing, amazing, lovely, inspiring, touching, yippee) super sweet person of the year! You are well-deserved of the awards. Don’t be humble. Go ahead. Show and tell on your blog!

I will be right here waiting for you to take you on a short adventure about me. I am a visual person (quite obvious, isn’t it?) so it’s better done in pictures, of course.

I have OCD. We hiked the same road and distance but my foot is as clean as I just come out of a shower.

The longest I’d been without shower was 3 days on a 4 day/3 night hike conquering Machu Picchu

The worst food poisoning I had was from eating medium rare chorizo

I love snow but not snowshoeing.

I flew off a bike which resulted a scar for life

Amsterdam is the wildest city I’ve visited thus far.

I believe I can fly.

But I can’t swim and love the water.

I held Pisa Tower upright…once.

    Congratulations on your numerous awards! You deserve more. Just to let you know I am born lefty too. I do everything using my left hand except when I eat with fork and spoon. Hee 🙂

    keep smiling!

    • Irene says:

      Lefties rule!!! I bet your were forced with a bamboo stick to eat with your right hand? 🙂

      • gotasté says:

        Yay! My mum tried ‘correcting’ me for a while then she gave up. haha! Now that I am in the media industry, being a lefty actually adds good impression. People believe we are more creative by using our right brain. 🙂
