Second Liebster Award

Not too long ago, I was nominated for the Liebster Award for the first time, and a second nomination came one month later.  I thought about not accepting it because I had received one shortly before, but my nominator had a good point "An actor receiving two Oscars will not only accept one"  Wow, good analogy.  Don't you think? 

So I am accepting this award simply because my lovely Nominator deserves my recognition and the 11 bloggers that I get to nominate deserve their award.  

Mamma Nene over at Serger Pepper nominated me and also told me that I was a "no-reply" blogger.  I had no idea for all these 3 years of blogging that others don't see my email!  

Thank you so much!!!!!!! 

11 Facts about myself:
  1. I was born and raised in Hong Kong, China
  2. I speak three languages fluently
  3. I am a 70's baby, yup, last generation to not have grown up with laptops, iPads, smart phones...
  4. I am married, no kids, one cutest dog
  5. I am (kinda) OCD
  6. I am a human trash can, I eat just about anything
  7. To add to the previous fact: I do NOT eat bugs (willingly) 
  8. I am actually a boring person (I don't party, I don't drink)
  9. I really am not that good of a blogger (and terrible at taking good pictures...)
  10. I fear failure
