  1. Oh, what a joy to learn more about you. I wish I can see a photo of your lilac hair! What is it about musicals that you hate? And wow, I thought it was just me who had a driving license but do not drive – I do now but for years did not. How come you do not drive? My bestie also loves Sailor Moon! And I love how you love food – my wish is that one day we can cook together. Finally, thank you for your wonderful description of our blog. We will also visit the others you have linked and answer these questions. I am smiling now because of you, thank you.

    1. ahaha! Musicals, I just cant cope with the singing in the middle of a conversation! I know it is meant to be enjoyable but not for me! Driving makes me very nervous, I check the road and everything like 200 times because I feel (I am) responsible for everything around me and I just cant deal with the pressure. I love cooking, it is the place where I am calm, I am in control and I know what is going on (most of the time, not when I use the grill as I have 99% rates of cremating the food ahah!) One day, one day!! I hope you enjoy answering my questions, the fellow bloggers I nominated are very talented, honest, open and pure people that I love! I hope you enjoy reading their blogs as much as I do!


      1. It was fun to read their blogs. And I understand the pressure with driving – I thought the same before! Okay, we will only eat and cook when we hang out in the future and stay away from musicals. Haha!
