This award is from my friend and fellow blogger Vidya

And again i am more than a month late in thanking and nominating this award. My apologies.

Receiving an award, for a new blogger wet behind her ears 😉 , is nothing short of encouragement !! Thank you for considering me worthy of the Award. 🙂


Liebster Award


The award is a way of appreciating the work of new comers like me. Since everyone is new to me in this blogging world, I will be nominating those who yet to get this award rather than by the age of the blog. 🙂

Questions asked by Vidya :

  • What is your favorite part of the day and why? Early morning because i go for a long walk and it jazzes up my day.
  • How has your blog turned out different than you expected? Blogging got me connected to lots of like minded people and sharing of our joys of cooking, reading and lots more.
  • Tell us something unique about yourself. I am considered a geek, a little weird  and a freak 😉 But i consider those as compliments 😀
  • Do you have a favorite t.v. show? What is it? I hardly get time to watch TV, when i do i love watching repeat telecast of FRIENDS, YES MINISTER. 
  • Use three words to describe yourself. Loyal, Generous and Witty.
  • Who has influenced you the most and why? My late father, for being my father. A man of few words taught me the power of silence, sincerity, solidarity and patience.
  • What is your favorite thing to do when you want to relax? Reading.
  • What is your least favorite household chore? Doing the chopping and later on the cleaning part of the kitchen.
  • What inspires you? LIFE 🙂
  • How do you want to be remembered? Andy, who always laughed and made others laugh, despite all the troubles and pain. 🙂
  • Do you have any pets? If so, what kind? No longer :/ Used have a pair of German Shepherds and a Cocker Spaniel .

Nominating the following blogger friends :

P.S. Majority bloggers i have known so far have been blogging much longer than me. I have chosen those bloggers who have been blogging less than a year,hence the number of nominations are less than 11.

I liked and loved all the questions put forward by Vidya. Nominees kindly answer the same questions. 🙂

Cheers !!!!
