I Got a Sunshine Blogger Award


¡Hola chicas! How are you? ^_^ So quick update on my life~…I’ve been busy “spring cleaning” our home these past few days and doing other work and stuff. I can’t believe I’m busier now than back when I still have an “office work!” Oh well, I did this to myself. Point is, I feel really bad for being MIA too much on this blog. But don’t worry (as if anyone cares, LOL) because I am learning the art of time management and hopefully, I’ll be able to allot time for blogging everyday again!

I may be busy and had no time chance to blog lately but I try to read/catch-up on my favorite blogs whenever I have a free time. So last week, I received yet another blogging award from one of my most favorite bloggers–Gen-zel of Genzel Kisses–and it’s called the Sunshine Blogger award. It’s pretty much like Liebster award and this time, I won’t bother researching its history and origin, LOL.

To Gen, thank you sis, for tagging and nominating me! You know I love you to bits! ^_^ Alright, lezz do this!

The Rules:
  1. Post a picture of the Sunshine Blogger Award (I ~also~ made my own)
  2. Post 11 random facts about yourself
  3. Answer 11 questions from the nominating blogger
  4. Link back to the blogger who nominated you
  5. Nominate 11 wonderful bloggers, that you feel bring sunshine to the blogging world. (Be sure to notify them)
  6. Write 11 questions for your nominated bloggers
11 Random Facts About Me
  1. Hi, I’m Jean and I’m a hoarder. Not really though. Haha! I might have a tendency to be one, sometimes, when my rationality and practicality are on break; or when there’s-so-many-choices-I-can’t-just-pick-one; or when I’m sad and have committed myself to a retail therapy; or when it’s really, really cute; or when it’s pink or teal or turquoise or green; etc. LOL
  2. I am 23 years old. A lot of people usually thought that I’m older, do I look older? You guys, you wound me, I have feelings ya know! Tsk. IDK, perhaps it’s because I act~ older (more mature, that’s what that is, heh). But if it’s really my “looks” then I blame the stress, sleep deprivation, and my fat cells! Haha! My boyfriend once said though that it’s because I usually hang out and make friends with older (than me) people…LOL, hi friends!
  3. I live with my three sisters. Yes, we’re all girls and there’s four of us, imagine that (not in a weird way PLS)! And oh, I’m the eldest AND prettiest! LOL JK about the latter, we’re all equally pretty. Haha!
  4. I’m not always this fat. If you knew me back in high school, or even first-year college, and never seen me since then, you’d probably won’t recognize me. Again, stress, etc. Hahahuhu
  5. I’m quite shy, in person, at first. But talk to me and I probably won’t stop babbling! Or not. It depends. Hehe
  6. I love food, eating, and I’m not a picky eater. And that’s also why I’m fat. No creepy crawlies though!
  7. I’m a blue baby. I have a CHD-VSD. My heart is literally broken since birth. In Tagalog layman’s term: may butas ang puso ko. I’m more normal~ than others who have the same condition though. Wow, I think this is the first time I told everyone about this! I mean, my family and close friends know of course, but I rarely go around saying hi-my-name-is-Jean-and-I-have-a-broken-heart. So I’d probably do a separate blog about this if anyone’s interested or when I feel like sharing how it has affected my life (clue: it’s not always rainbows and butterflies).
  8. I don’t like watching horror films, especially on the big screen. Not that I’m scared/afraid but I think it’s a waste of time and money. But I do like gory films/shows with excellent stories (e.g. Game of Thrones).
  9. I have a boyfriend. We’ve been together for five years (going six in a few months). We met in college. He’s older than me and he didn’t know that when he started courting me (until my 18th birthday!). LOL (read no. 2 again, haha)
  10. I had my first surgery done when I was two/three years old, to fix my cleft palate. Lawd, why am I such an abnormal baby? Hahahuhu No hard feelings though, Lord. Heh (Also the first time I announced this to the world wide web!)
  11. I may have a very sensitive sense of smell and hearing. Sometimes at night, I’d wake up to a slight noise only to realize it’s just the cat playing. There are nights that I can’t sleep because I can hear the clock ticking or the fan/aircon buzzing. And I usually smell things that others don’t notice, and it’s usually a bad scent and that’s sad. It’s not me, I swear!

Whoa! That’s a long random facts! Haha! Told ya, I miss blogging and I’m a babbler. Heh. Anyway, if you want to know more about me, don’t hesitate to ask! ^_^

Now, the questions…

Gen’s Questions for me:
  1. One makeup product you can’t live without?
    I don’t put on make-up everyday so I can live without any but if I MUST REALLY pick one, it’d be mascara.
  2. What’s your dream vacation?
    Travel outside the country alone and go to a scenic country (probably somewhere in Europe).
  3. Silliest thing you’ve ever done?
    I’m not proud of it so I’d like to keep it buried in my memory. Haha
  4. Who’s your ultimate celebrity crush?
    There are two! Matt Bomer (yes, even if he’s gay because there’s nothing wrong with that!) and Chris Hemsworth (because he’s a god, duh! haha).
  5. Favorite singer?
    Lorde and Sarah Bareilles
  6. Food you hate?
    Nothing! LOL No one should hate food! Love, love, love lang! Haha! But I have non-favorites, still, doesn’t mean I hate them, so.
  7. Most favorite red lipstick?
    I actually just started trying red lipsticks (I used to avoid them) and I haven’t tried MAC yet (so I can’t pretend to like it)…I’m currently trying out Colour Collection’s Queen Bee (which I got from Sample Room) and so far, I’m loving it! ^_^
  8. Android or iOS? Why?
    iOS!!! No words just love. Heh
  9. What is blogging to you?
    Blogging is sharing knowledge and ideas, challenging yourself to be better, inspiring others, engaging with different people and making lasting connections, I thank you, bow.
  10. Most favorite blog site?
    Yours, Gen, of course! ^_~ Also, lots of lifestyle and craft blogs!
  11. Dress or pants?
    I stopped wearing dress now because I’m fat and insecure about it. So for now, pants. But I do want to wear a dress again!! Soon, soon. ^_^
