Yippee, I got an award!

So here's the rules and regulations of the award:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.

2. Tell us 7 things about yourself which people may not know.

3. Award 15 other bloggers.

4. Contact these bloggers and let them know that they have won (oh my how will I find the time to do this...).

Thank you GG for nominating me for this award. I am so honoured, yes yes ladies and gentlemen.....this is an honour I do not take for granted....

And here are 7 things about me.....

1. I used to be a ‘closeted feminist’ until recently. When I came out, I lost the title as well as I realised how unfair my stance was. I think it is because I have three sisters and plenty girl cousins and I have always been so loyal and protective of them (as the tomboy in the family). I am wiser now and am on the ‘pray for one, pray for all’ wagon. This means I have extended my duty of care to their male counterparts, my male siblings and male friends ~it is quite an eye-opener and NB: my definition of feminist is probably ‘’can’t really be bothered about men’s emotions-except my late grandfather’s who was my most fave male in the world!’’

2. Like my counterpart GG, I loathe snakes as well. Before 2011, I couldn’t even stand seeing them on tv. I would scream and run out the room or jump around on my tip-toes as I envisioned them on the floor. Now, I have resolved not to scream but I literally give myself a pat on the back (or a fist bump) if I don’t. I still can’t eat snake lollies though. In about 20 years, I want to have a picture taken with a snake just to prove that I have overcome my fear. 20 years!!!! i have use the word snake 4 times in this paragraph, this is record-breaking because I couldn’t even say the word and now I am thinking it....wow!

3. I love weddings! Almost obsessed with them. I think I want to get married just so I can have a wedding of my own..... #truestory

4. TV addict and tea addict! Yes, when I have no work, put me in front of a tv and you never have to feed me, listen to me or talk to me, none of those things. Tea addict! When I make a cup of tea, I just grin with excitement, anticipating my first sip. (i get it from my granpa but I m sure his tea was caffeine-free because he was SDA).

5. I am a lazy shopper and a bargain hunter but never at the same time so one can imagine how frustrating it is to shop with me. Either I leave the store with nothing after a good hour because everything is so expensive or with all things because I can’t be bothered to keep looking...

6. In 2010, I got my Masters degree,  got baptised and employed in the space of 3 months. I feel so blessed to be where I am and to be God's daughter. He really has laid a table out for me in front of my enemies. He has made them my footstool (yes diablo, i speak to you). My recent saying (like 2 minutes ago-recent) is now ''its not what you believe that gets you places, its Who you believe in".
7. I love children. Aside from my addictions, I think I am in mini-heaven when I am hanging with people under 13. I love the silly games and I love their laughs and their fresh insight on things. Like one child I babysat, she used to say “upstairs and downstairs” every time she picked her nose and brought the bogies down. I found it funny and still do.
