Liebster Award 2016 Blogger Edition Tuesday, October 18, 2016
got this from Google Images

As you all have probably know, the Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome (Global Aussie, 2016). 

It really brings me back to my good ole Tumblr days. This award has been going on around my feed for years. I've been nominated how many times and also nominated others how many times and it's really overwhelming. I enjoyed reading my co-bloggers answers, even if it weren't my questions. The sad thing though, is that after a couple of years, I kinda got lazy answering. Haha. Shameless but true! I'm still honored and happy, believe me. It got me lazy to the fact that I didn't have much time that moment, and I forget to go back and check the post again. But the Liebster award, again, has been going around and I ran out of active bloggers to nominate. Haha. So, in the end I just answered the questions and tagged whoever came out as I type '@'.

This time, it's a whole different platform, a different world, somehow. I believe I'm just entering it, so I just know a few people. It's time to get to know each other, and I'm so open for that! I've been nominated by ate Renee of  The Random Bibliophile. Thank you so much ate Ren!! She's also one of the co-bloggers I had back in Tumblr. She's a 22-year-old licensemetallurgical engineer (she just passed last year!) who loves to read books, and drink coffee. She also loves wandering, like me! She's been to many places now that she's already earning money. You could read more about her life on her blog.

So here's the thing, I'm going to answer her questions, nominate also other bloggers and give them 11 questions to answer. Basically it's a way to get to know each other! As said on the rules I also have to give some facts about me but I'm gonna skip it and just share some facts through the questions ate Ren have for me.

01. What made you pursue blogging?
 I pursued blogging because it's something I love doing. I love documenting what I've accomplished, gone through, my works, adventures and things I've learned. And I want to share this to everyone. I want to inspire and be inspired. Always.
02. Who is/are your inspiration(s)? 
My best friend, Elloisa and the chef/boyf, Meric. 
03. What are your favorite blogs?
 My favorite blogs are actually photography blogs as of the moment bc I want to be inspired as much when it comes to photography. But if specifically and generally, one of my favorite blogs is SpellSaab - Sab Magalona's blog. It's actually hard to pick!
04. Aside from blogging, what are you most passionate about?
Well if it isn't too obvious yet, *whispers* it's photography.
05. Are you exactly where you want to be right now? Or are you still striving to get there?
I'm so not in the place I want to be right now. Still trapped in my castle, striving to get out. And I really do hope I'll do get out and be freee.
06. What is your dream job?
This is a tough one considering I don't know what I wanted to be when I grew up. But now, aside from being a full time photographer, I wanted jobs related to creating things like videos. Some of which includes being a graphic designer and multimedia designer. But aghh, I still believe I ain't creative enough for that. So full-time photographer it is.
07. If you could live in any country, where would it be?
The first thing that really popped in my mind is JAPAN. But now as I typed this, I'm having second thoughts. I'm actually torn between New York and Japan but aghh. I'd still go with Japan. New York, just maybe a few years. Haha!
08. What are your pet peeves?
One of the things that really bugs me is when I'm walking, no rush, and people just stand, talk or argue in the middle of the hall or road. I mean c'mon, be sensitive to other people too, especially to those who are on the rush. It's annoying more when I'm the one on the rush. *added this* I also hate people who talk so loud and laugh so loud as if they're the only ones in the room! So insensitive. I mean unless you want other people hear your convos.

bc this is how I'd totally feel inside
09. What can't you live without and why?
If it's a material thing then I think it would be my camera and camera gears. I also think I've gotten way way in love with photography and I've become more passionate about it that's why I'd answer that. I just love taking photos. And these photos, they could give impact to someone, as for me. It's also a piece of memory.
10. Are you a dog person or a cat person?
I've always been in between the two. I like cats and I also like dogs. But recently I've been wanting to own a dog much particularly a pug because I love how cute a pug is. We do own a cat and I enjoy my cat too, and I also get crazy that I want to squeeze her tight. So... I'm a dog cat person. Hehe!
11. What message would you like to give me? :)
Hi ate Ren! Thank you again for nominating me. I hope we'll get to know each other more, get closer and I hope to someday meet you in person! Good luck and God bless in all aspects of your life and keep blogging!

My Nominees are:

*drum rolls*
Just five because I ran out of people to nominate. He he he.

My 11 Questions:

  1. What's your first impression about me, if there are any? If none, what do you think of me?
  2. What's your favorite movie and why?
  3. If you could eat something for a week straight, what would it be?
  4. If you could be in any tv show, what show would you like to be in?
  5. Would you rather go out with your friends on a Friday night or hang out by yourself?
  6. Glasses or contact lens? Why?
  7. What superpower would you like to have? Why?
  8. Name a celebrity or someone you can't reach (lol) you would like be with for a day. And what would you do.
  9. If you could be a celebrity, what field would you prefer? (Actor/Actress, Singer, Dancer, Author, etc.) Why?
  10. I want to know at least one of your secrets that you could manage to tell. Hehe.
  11. What's your dream date? I mean how would you want your date to go. If it already happened, do you mind sharing?
Thank you again Ate Ren for nominating me! I had a mixed of emotions and had a lot of time answering your questions. I still enjoyed though! And for my nominees, I hope you'll have the time to answer them. And please do enjoy!
