The Sun is shining… a WordPress Family Award

It’s been a while since I participate in a blog award thing-y, but my good friend Michael from It Rains… You Get Wet kindly bestowed me this beautiful award recently. Hey, who doesn’t like awards? Plus, it gave me a chance to nominate my fellow bloggers, so why not spread the love 😀

2013SunshineAward

One of the rules of this award… [with powers, comes responsibility as it were], is that I have to answer these 10 questions about myself, so here goes!

1. Favorite Actor

[who’s not a household name yet]

RArmitage_Window

Richard Armitage

The question is, why is he NOT a household name yet [sigh]

He’s my pick for the next Bond, Batman, Nathan Drake, futuristic Robin Hood… and pretty much any role that’d benefit from a deeply-masculine yet soulful hunk with acting chops to boot!

2. Favorite Food?

Oh, too many to name but I’d have to say Indonesian Fried Rice, complete with chicken satay, fried egg and shrimp crackers. YUM!

3. Favorite non alcoholic drink?

Well I don’t drink so my indulgence is Starbucks’ iced chai or caramel macchiato, with whip cream on top. Yum!

4. Favorite Animal?

Oh that’s a toughie. I guess it’s a tie between cats and dogs, as I grew up with both growing up. I even had one of my kittens Jill (named after a character from an Aussie soap opera Return to Eden) that nursed on my Pekingese dog Floppy. She lost her mother and she thought Floppy was her mom!! I wish I had a photo of that.

5. Favorite number?

Hmmm, I don’t really have one but I like the number 7.

6. Favorite Color?

I’ve always been into cool colors, so blue, green, turquoise… but lately I’ve been obsessed with seafoam green!

7. My Passion?

Well isn’t it obvious? 😀 Movies of course and writing/talking about ’em. I’m also into Fashion and Travel, as you can see in my Pinterest boards.

8. Favorite Day of the Week?

I love Fridays for obvious reasons, but also because my hubby & I always go out to dinner on Friday nites, followed by home cinema movie-watching after 😀

9. Favorite Flower?

I love non-traditional flowers, so anything but roses 😀 I guess if I have to pick just one, it’d be the Mokara Orchids as they’re so exotic and simply gorgeous! My late mom used to grow Orchids when I was growing up, so the flower always reminds me of her 😀

10. Favorite soundtrack from 2013?

Pacific Rim of course. Still obsessed with this one, it’s such a good workout music, too!
