Liebster Nominations by ignite18

Time to continue clearing my award debt! Actually, as some of you may have noticed, I have fallen into a lazy blogging spell, hence the lack of posts recently :p Its a result of being addicted to Chinese web novels for two weeks straight. To be honest, being addicted to a novel is somewhat worse than being addicted to an anime series for me, because when I start to read everything just flashes by and it gets too hard to stop. Whereas for anime, I know at least there’s an end to every episode, and when that time comes, I usually think more about whether to click on the next button.

Today’s Liebster awards were nominated by ignite18, on the dates 2 August 2015 and 10 August 2015. Go check out her blog if you haven’t! It contains lots of manga and pics of hot guys *wink wink* Thanks for the nomination, and I apologise for my tardiness in getting back!

*I won’t be nominating anybody for these posts, because I think most of the bloggers I know have been nominated already and this is a pretty old award.*

Onto the questions!

What’s the weirdest thing someone has ever said to you?

“You look like a lamb when its time to be slaughtered has arrived.” Okay…

What would be the last thing you did if the world was going to end?

Leap off a cliff and experience exhilarating free fall motion. No harm in choosing to plunge to death while ‘skydiving’ right?

White chocolate or milk chocolate?

Milkkkk. White chocolate is a little too sweet for me.

If you could make any character come to life who would it be and why?

This isn’t easy. Mmmmm maybe Miyuki Kazuya from Diamond no Ace. Why? What, isn’t it obvious enough? 😉

What’s one thing you can’t live without?

Eyesight I guess. Tough choice though. Any of my 5 senses would be an apt answer.

What character most resembles you?

Hmm I don’t have a ready answer for this but for now, Shizuka Sazaki from Shirobako. Mainly because of the fact that she’s trying very hard but always falling short of achieving her dream. But she still remains positive and continues to try no matter what. She kind of reminds me of how I deal with challenges in life sometimes.

(I’m going to steal this question) Do you have a pet peeve and if so what is it?

I have like 1000 pet peeves I think lol. For now what I can think of is little kids being rude to their grandparents. Especially when their grandparents are slower in walking and are clearly just doing things for the good of their kids and the kids lose impatience and start yelling at them.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?

I have a few choices for this. Probably still my country (Singapore) for the long term, Japan (Tokyo?) or New York for the experience.

Are you a cat or dog person?

Dog dog dog 😀

What is something or somethings you’ve never done but want to?

Confess to somebody and spend like less one day being moody if I am rejected. It feels very ‘alive’ to do it like in romance stories (like shoujo) with all whole-heartedness, but I kind of don’t really want the bad consequences if they happen (LOL).

What is your greatest strength and weakness?

My strength lies in being a good listener. My most fatal weaknesses are probably cowardice and paranoia.

If you could wake up tomorrow in the body of someone else who would you be, and what would you do?

A male multi-millionaire or famous celebrity. I would go downtown and attend parties as an esteemed guest and bask in fame and snag all the pretty girls huehuehuehue. Yeah I know I am weird. But the whole point is also in switching genders xD

Do you do a crazy dance when no one is looking?

I kind of leap into the air rather than crazy dance. And then I’ll knock into something and sustain a bruise. Kind of happens all the time lol.

What’s your favorite day of the year?

First day of Chinese New Year actually. Which is coming up soon like the coming Monday! ^^ I love the buzz and the crowds of people at my grandmother’s house. Even the feigned socializing and the small talk that happens once a year is strangely fascinating. How people are overly friendly and cheerful is too I guess.

Something you secretly enjoy?

Reverse harem stories … with reverse harem ends. (Girl ends up with like >7 guys)

If you won the lottery, what would you do?

Book an air ticket to Japan. I mean plan a trip to Japan, because I don’t want to overly spend without planning.

Shark diving, bungee jumping, or sky diving?

Sky diving woots ^^ Better scenery than bungee jumping, and somehow I don’t like the idea of sharks and the open sea. *shudders*

What is something you’ve always wanted to try but have been too scared to?

Impulsively making a decision like running to a third world country like Myanmar or Cambodia on a whim without any planning. Half of me wants to see how much I can survive based on close to nothing while the other half of me is scared of what could possibly happen to me.

If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to?

What? I love the past. Take me back to ancient China please. My personality would probably do better there than now. Speaking of year, probably Qing Dynasty would be good enough. Probably the start of 1700 since that’s when Emperor Kang Xi was in rule.

What’s your favorite food?

For now its pie. I am craving pie ^^

What’s one thing no one knows about you?

Actually, this is tough. Ah maybe this. I like fiction about incest that can make me cry. This may seem weird at first glance, but I can tell you that how good writing is is when one can turn something that seems intuitively disgusting to something that actually tugs on your heartstrings and makes it so painful it makes you question your own morals. Like how could I have been so moved by something so unthinkable? That’s when one sees the power of beautiful writing.

11 Facts about me: I haven’t forgotten my topics for facts actually. Today’s one would be ‘Personality’

1. If there’s any defining trait about me, its probably obedience. This may have been great for my parents when I was young, but now that I am not a child anymore the problems of being too obedient start to surface.

2. Some of my friends’ friends name me ‘lamb’. Well … point taken.

3. I smile a lot at people but I am quite quiet.

4. I spend a lot of time worrying about random things. I am a born worrier.

5. I don’t like initiating conversations. But sometimes when things get awkward I’ll usually say something.

6. I am a little too dispassionate and indifferent to things and people at times. Most of the time I can’t be bothered.

7. I usually put curbs on my enthusiasm, which only happens when it comes to talking about anime anyway and since most people around me don’t think too well of it, showing over enthusiasm or excitement is never a good choice.

8. I do still like to talk to people in general though. I just hate the ‘small talk’ and ‘getting to know’ part, but only because I am often disappointed in the lack of depth in conversations nowadays.

9. I don’t know how to scold anybody at all. Even kids. By that I mean I can’t raise my voice or sound legitimately indignant.

10. I sometimes think I over analyze things too much.

11. I talk a lot more to online friends than to my real life friends sometimes.

So that’s all for today! Sorry about the lack of content recently >< I am going to write something more substantial by the end of the coming weekend though, as soon as I get my inspirational mojo back into gear. As always, thanks for reading, and feel free to like or comment 😀

  1. Bungee jumping! We are planning to do one within this year. We’ve been watching videos to ready ourselves. Haha. But just the thought scares me. >_< And I've tried many cliff jumps! Tho it would take me at least 20 minutes before I actually jump. Lol.

    • Ohhhh wowww. You guys must be daredevils xD But if you have been doing lots of cliff jumps it must be good mental preparation. I think I’ll spend an hour trying to get myself them. I think I’d rather that somebody pushed me instead of me just being indecisive HAHA.

      • Mt friends are. Haha. Maybe I’m still getting at the daredevil” level. Lol. Although I have done many of them, I still can’t have my mind get used to it. Every time we do it, my knees shake. Like literally. XD Once, I asked my friend to push me because that jump was taking too long and they’d been lined up behind me. So he pushed with no reservation. Haha. >_<

      • Hahaha then its good that your daredevil friends help you in ‘forcing’ yourself to do these things otherwise you’d never have the courage to take that step yourself! I actually wish I have friends like that lol. I understand though. I am definitely on the other end of the ‘daredevil’ spectrum myself xD I am the kind of person who’s gungho at the start (like initiating) but when I am there standing on the cliff I’d be like no no no I wanna get out of here xD And then people will be like …. but you wanted to do this -.-

        Liked by 1 person

      • Yeah, I would need to agree with you about having these “good” friends. Haha. I am not of the adventurous type but because of them I have to be. Lol. But it’s not that I regret having them. I’m actually very thankful. I’m usually not the one who initiates but whenever they’d ask me if it’s fine to go (with a certain “daredevil plan”) I’m the one with the loudest and most convincing yes. And most of the time I end up with “No. I’m not doing any of this. Let me outta here.” And they would all be “No, you’re here, you do it, you wanted this.” ><

      • Haha now that’s an interesting motivation. Isn’t night so many hours away from breakfast though? Plus, you don’t feel hungry when you fall asleep and immediately after you wake up xD

        Liked by 1 person

      • I think so, I don’t really pay attention on the time distance haha. Yeah I don’t think I feel hungry when I am asleep. Once I wake up and my body starts getting activate, then my head says I’m hungry. It’s almost like turning on a computer XD.

        Liked by 1 person

      • Haha I see. That’s good eating habits though. Too many people don’t feel hungry when they wake up so they skip breakfast, which is apparently bad. I eat breakfast, but I often can’t eat much for dinner >< hence stomach growling at midnight hahaha.

        Liked by 1 person

      • I hear about that. Some people would skip breakfast when they are not hungry or in a rush; my sister does that when she goes to work. I say breakfast is the most important part of the day… serving it up Gary’s way XD

        Liked by 1 person

      • Haha exactly, I have lots of peers who skip it too. But its definitely important – its where you get your first nutrients and the way to kickstart the start of the day xD LOL at the Spongebob reference 😀

        Liked by 1 person

      • That’s niceeeee 😀 bagels and cream cheese are not staples where I am, I just make do with toast haha 😀 hahaha I remember SpongeBob as the last cartoon I have watched. It was never a kids’ cartoon to me though xD

        Liked by 1 person

      • That sounds good. I like toast but I don’t eat that often. Bagels are what I usually eat in the mornings. I like to eat something warm in the morning :p. After all these years, Spongebob is still shown on tv. I will admit, this is probably the only show I watch on nick. XD

        Liked by 1 person

      • Yeah bagels are goodddd. ^^ *stomach growls* Whenever I get to replying to you, I am always hungry lol xD I used to watch it on Nick too, until I didn’t have Nick on TV anymore >< I agree, its one of those shows that you can't grow old of, because there actually isn't anything that's not 'just for young kids' in the first place. 😀

        Liked by 1 person

      • Whoops my bad XD. The bagels I usually eat are the blueberries, I think I eat bagels so many times that I kinda forgot what’s it like to eat cereal in the morning haha. Now that I am a young adult, I feel like I am becoming more of Squidward than SpongeBob. XD

        Liked by 1 person

      • Haha sounds good 😀 I haven’t eaten cereal for a very long time either lol, can’t imagine the times when I used to eat it religiously for breakfast xD Hahaaa exactly, Squidward is a reflection of our current more jaded selves. His permanent expression is like me when I am forced to do something I dislike (which is like 50% of the time). Sometimes I wish I can return to the airheaded and hilariously idiotic Spongebob-like days. :3

        Liked by 1 person

      • I used to eat cereal all the time in the mornings. I eat cereal but not often. I sometimes act like Squidwars if I don’t want to do labor. Same as you, I kinda want to see if I can be the silly person like Spongebob haha. I’m ready!

        Liked by 1 person

      • Haha I don’t eat cereal nowadays lol. Kind of forgot about it as an option for breakfast xP Aha its best to be part Squidward and part Spongebob. I am ready too! :3 let’s start off with his silly laughter LOL ‘taahaahaahaahaa’ (sounds like this to me haha xD)

        Liked by 1 person

      • Yeah me too kinda. I know that cereal is an option but I go for something warm. Agreed about Spongebob and Squidward. Half funny but half serious. That looks like it his laugh. I always thought it was a ‘d’ than a ‘t’.
        Squidward laughs nasally.

        Liked by 1 person

      • Haha yeah same for me. Lol hmm, perhaps it was a ‘d’. I mean, it was never really too clear after all xD Squidward’s laugh is relatively easier though. You just have to pinch your nose xD

        Liked by 1 person

      • Oh yes now that you say it, I do remember the inflating and deflating xD Haha I find it very uncomfortable to talk when pinching my nose. Must be terrible work for the voice actor if he has to voice Squidward that way lol.

        Liked by 1 person

      • I am pretty sure it was uncomfortable for him to make his voice like that in the beginning. Now in these modern episodes, I bet it’s no problem. I wonder if he accidentally talks like Squidward in public after work.

    • Yay much love to online friends <
      As much as I put it that way, I’ll probably try to back out at the last minute despite being enthusiastic about skydiving and all >< so I am quite cowardly too haha.
      Glad you agreed with me on that point, I thought it may have been weird to write it out like that xD
      Thank you! 🙂
