I Got Nominated


I was supposed to write something that’s in my head but when I opened WordPress and found out about a Liebster Award Nomination from Megan Stephenson of 18 and Writing.  I have heard of this award thing before in different blog sites but I am not that much familiar with it nor I ever thought of getting one. But thanks Megan for nominating me! This one simple nomination made me smile and happy. I always forgot that people read this blog and you reminded me that. 🙂 Thank you for giving me my first ever blog nomination. 🙂

Q&A Portion

1. Where’s that one place that you feel the most comfortable by yourself?

I feel most relaxed and comfortable in my room. It’s the only place I can freely be myself without worrying about anyone judging me or maybe bugging me. I have my bed where I can lie down with a good book. It is also the secret place where I can shut myself from the rest of the world and get crazy. It is the very place where no one can see me, a place where I can behave and misbehave. 🙂

2. Books or Movies? This is for movies that start with a written counterpart. Both is not an option. Which do you prefer?

I am a book person. There are things in the book that get scrapped in movies. For me the tiny bits that gets taken out from the novels when they turn it to movies makes a difference in interpretation. Also, with the book, my imagination gets titillated even more making the neurons in my head exercise.

3. What is your favorite restaurant- that place you can go four trillion times in a row and never get tired of it?

Cibo and Itallianis. I am a huge fan of Italian food so that explains it.

4. If given a million dollars tomorrow and were not able to spend it on yourself at all, what would you do with the money?

I never plan on spending everything on myself really. I intend to invest it in real assets, stocks, and save some in the bank so it may grow interest. I also plan to allot a part of it in charity work.

5. What was/is your dream job?

My dream job is to be a corporate lawyer in Wall Street and have some business on the side, a restaurant maybe. 🙂

6. If you could have only one soda for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Nothing beats Coca-Cola.

7. What childhood memory is your absolute favorite? And don’t say you don’t know. It’s probably the story you’ve told everyone three million times and they know it by heart. Most of us have one.

My 7th birthday party. I was one of those kids who had a really huge and festive 7th birthday party. Not everyone had that kind of children’s party in their lives so I guess that’s one of my favorite. Actually, all my birthday celebration when I was kid were pretty much extravagant. Hence, birthday parties make it to my top list.

8. What’s the best birthday present you have ever gotten?

It may sound cheesy but my FAMILY of course. I just kind of appreciated them more when I moved here in the city for college and my parents make it a point not to miss my birthday. It is really a huge effort that despite busy schedules and hectic appointments with patients they find time to celebrate my special day with me.

9.What’s the one thing you always use to put off something you don’t want to do? Like, mine is checking my email because it leads to living on the internet for hours.

Watching my favorite TV series and reading novels.

10. Favorite childhood board game? Even made up ones count here.

Chess and scrabble. Yes, I’m a little geek. Anyway, the very first time I got hold of a chess board at the age of five I got totally hooked. For the scrabble, I don’t know but I find it fun to play especially with my aunts and my parents at the age of six. I remember how competitive I was, I even had the huge lexicon beside me every time I’ll play against them so as to check that their big words really do exist.

11. What was the one thing that convinced you to start blogging?

I have a pile of used notebooks inside my treasure chest and I don’t know where else to put them. I already have so many journals that I realized I have to find other avenue where I can spill my thoughts.

    Thanks Max! 🙂

  2. […] Guess what I found in my inbox this morning. I mean besides the usual spam for “male enhancing to be the man you are” and messages from the ‘so called’ FBI about some secret operation they need my help in. (Very authentic stuff) I found a wonderful little Liebster award from Max Hidalgo. […]
