So I just googled “Versatile Blogger” and I think this is how it works. I need to share with you 7 facts about myself and nominate my favorite bloggers.
ONE – I am a night owl. I enjoy working at night because the quietness and stillness at night time enable me to think with clarity. My inspiration tends to come to me at night too when I’m in my own thought and quiet space. My mind is calm and I don’t get swayed away by a list of things I have to do during daytime. No emails coming in. No phone ringing. No dog barking at neighbors.
TWO – I am a foodie but not a big fan of cheesy and creamy stuff. I grew up in Asia surrounded with all kind of spices, fresh produce and seafood so I’m pretty fortunate to have eaten a wide variety of food. Always seeking new recipes. I love all kind of food ranging from Thai, Indian, Indonesian, and Moroccan. Although I love food, when comes to cooking I prefer no hassles.
THREE – Seafood. I love it so much that I think it deserves its own bullet point. If I ever had seafood or shellfish allergy, I’d be very sad. Overcooked seafood makes me mad! Here is one I think it’s super yummy while you might think it’s disgusting is blood cockle. This absolutely has to be eaten fresh and raw.
FOUR – Places left on my bucket list to visit and photograph are Nepal, India, Morocco, Turkey and Greece. Some of the most amazing places I have been are South Africa, Thailand, Indonesia, France and Italy. Coming up in my traveling plan that’s new in the next couple of months is Taiwan. I have heard so much about their street food…I can’t wait to try their famous “stinky tofu”. Wish me luck!
FIVE – I have music for almost everything I do. I listen to the traditional Yoga music when I’m working. It clears my mind and helps me focus. I love listening to Pavarotti when making dinner. And I enjoy listening to Dave Brubeck when I am reading or drinking wine. I play Taylor Swift’s CD when I have clients over at my home-studio for portraits. My theme song is “One Day I Will be Saturday Night” by Bon Jovi. Lady Gaga’s “Applause” and Britney Spear’s “Work Bit*h” are my go to workout songs.
SIX – I secretly wish I can do salsa dancing like a pro. Oh well… Zumba is the closest I have ever come to “dancing” with salsa moves.
SEVEN – All or nothing! The BEST dessert I have ever eaten in the last 17 yrs living here in the US is The Banana Cream Pie at Emeril’s restaurant. I refuse to eat a non-Emeril’s banana cream pie ever since.
Here are a few bloggers that I would like to nominate for “Versatile Blogger”. Not only I look forward to reading their blogs, looking at their beautiful photos, I also find them inspiring. To these wonderful bloggers (including areceipeforgluttony), thank you for making time to share with us your passion.
