The Liebster Award #1

Hi guys,


Last month I got nominated by Emma of Thoughts of a Brown-eyed Girl for this amazing award. And she did us all a favour for googling the meaning of Liebster. It’s German for ‘dearest’ people. I was surprised and a little doubtful. I mean she knew it means Dearest yet she still nominated me. Well, at least  some people sees me as dearest. So shout to Emma!!!! If you haven’t following her yet, you’re missing some funny posts guys. SO follow her NOW!!! HER SITE!!!

Though I’m pretty sure my neighbor wouldn’t agree with Emma. Hahaha!!!!

Anyway, there’s #1 in the title because I got nominated again. Ha! Is this a confirmation that I really am DEAREST? I repeat DEAREST!!!!

Hahaha!!!.. okay enough of this. Let’s move on.
I wanted to just post one for my two nominations but they have two different sets of questions so I had to post them separately.

The rules:

1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and provide a link to their blog and/or Liebster Award post.
2. List 11 questions of your choice for your nominees to answer (optional, I suppose).
3. Display the award logo on your blog and/or in your post.
4. Talk a little bit about your favorite blog(s) and explain why you like them, perhaps link to a favorite post or two.
5. Provide ten random facts about yourself.
6. Nominate 5-11 blogs that you feel deserve the award and who have less than 200 followers (and note that you may always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets readers know this information).
7. List these rules in your post (you can copy and paste from here if you want).
8. Be sure to inform your nominees that they have been nominated (you could do a pingback, like I do).

Favorite blogs???

God, that’s hard. You guys just gotta check my followers.. They’re all my favorite. Hehe.

TEN FACTS ABOUT ME!!!- I know I’m not that interesting but bear with me anyway. I command it. Hahaha…

1. I don’t have sweet tooth. 

I don’t eat sweets guys… Okay, of course I eat something sweet once in a while but I’m not one of those who salivates upon seeing chocolate or cakes. I don’t like cakes, or even ice cream. I know, weird. At least that’s what people say when I tell them. Some even say that I’m just trying to be different and thus look cool. Tsss, seriously??? I’m being honest about not eating sweets,

UNLESS the said SWEET is one of my Book Boyfriends. Now THAT’s different story. 🙂

Or if it’s CHILI ICE CREAM? Are you guys familiar with this particular Ice Cream?


2. I studied Electrical Engineering Before.

I know, how come? I wanted to be a writer so why? I didn’t finish it okay? I love numbers too. and Engineering is filled with numbers and oh those experiments…. 🙂

3. My favorite spot in house was my closet.

No it’s not because of clothes. There is a part of my closet that I turned into a writing desk/reading nook. And I love it!!! Look!!!!



4. There are night I pray that God don’s send THE ONE.

I know this is really weird, but I really don’t want to marry. Single for life is one of my dreams in life guys.. Really. When I was younger, and say that, people would tell me that I’m too young to decide THAT. That I’m gonna change my mind, but now that I’m 25 already, less and lesser people would contradict what I say about not marrying. Well, they’d already seen how determined I am about it. So please God, don’t send the one my way…

giphy (4)

5. Unbeknownst to everyone, I also pray for THE ONE…

Let me explain. I DONT WANT to marry but what if there is really someone destined for me? You see though I don’t believe I would ever fall in love, I do believe in Romance though not for myself. Anyway, sometimes I worry. If I don’t marry, what will happen to that guy who is destined to me. I mean, even if he’s destined to me, life is what we make it. It’s still depends on our choices, RIGHT?

Ugh… Im not making sense… let’s move on.

6. My favorite color is BLUE.

These kinds of blue. 🙂 🙂 🙂

7. I RE-read Harry Potter Series every Year 

It’s an annual tradition guys which started when I was maybe 18 or twenty? And not only that, I also watch the movies once in a while… Along with LOTR and the Hobbit movies. 🙂 🙂 🙂

8. Seafood? BIG NO!!!

This I don’t understand. My family doesn’t understand this as well. I grew up near an ocean guys so there’s always fish and others… But I just can’t eat them…

Speaking of living near the ocean…

9. I DOn’t know how to swim.

Guess why! Well, okay I have a fear of depths. Not exactly depth, I’m not just comfortable putting my feet somewhere I can not see like under the water. While swimming, I can’t keep looking at my feet, right? Especially in the caves…

God, I’m shivering just by thinking of it.

Why am I so weird???

10. I love Taylor Swift NOT as a singer.

Because she’s a freakin’ STORYTELLER. A peculiar one but no less a storyteller. 🙂 🙂 🙂



One of my childhood dreams was to become a commercial model… Hehehe.

Ahm, like I said, I’m not that interesting but I thank you from the bottom of my heart if you made it reading til the end. I love you.


Kay.. 🙂                           Michel
GingerMom.               Bree
LaRonda                       Yvonne
Nada                             Arthifis
Camille                        Zoe

There are still question but I think this post is already long and Emma’s questions though they’re interesting ones, I think I’ve already answered them in other posts. I’ll still post the questions, it’s up to you if you want to answer them. 🙂
These are Emma’s questions. I’m stealing them

  1. Least favorite book from your favorite genre?
  2. Favorite book from your least favorite genre?
  3. Favorite TV show?
  4. Your greatest fear?
  5. Quote something from the last book you finished.
  6. A book that deserves more hype?
  7. A fictional character that you relate to most?
  8. Favorite book cover?
  9. Sunsets or sunrises?
  10. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
  11. Last book that genuinely scared you?

Okay, that’s it guys… Let’s chat… Is anyone here somehow shares that facts about me that I mentioned?

Happy Reading…

  1. My hometown is near beaches but I can’t swim (afraid of the deep parts!), only on the shallow parts can I breathe easy. And I just came back from a harry potter movie marathon and can I just say I love your annual tradition ❤
    Congrats on the award!

  2. Duh! Of course dearest! Sometimes you are just a bit too humble 😊 But I am getting ahead of myself here. First off, congratulations on this award! 🎉🎉🎉😊😊😊 You deserve it so much, and why dearest? Well: you simply have an amazing blog here. Your posts are always very informative, fun and simply a joy to read. But let us not forget the most important thing here: you yourself are so incredibly sweet and kind. So all I can say is: keep having confidence in yourself: you really should should because you are doing great.
    Also as for number 5, you were making a lot of sense. As someone who is still searching for the one himself, I can honestly say that I can relate and understood completely what you wrote here.
    Thanks so much for nominating me. I really appreciate it so much! As you might have seen on my blog, I am really running behind with awards posts, but I will try and catch up this year as best I can. So, really thank you for this 😊😊
    All I can say in closing is: keep up the great work, and the faith in your own capabilities. You are awesome! 😀😀

    1. Awwww… Michel.. Thank youuuuuu…. Your words are just love…. I’m really so glad I met you here…. 🙂 🙂 🙂 ❤ ❤ As for my insecurities, I think it's because I've always been an introvert since I was a kid and so… Well I grew up being friendly but i really only get comfortable or relax with very few people. If you know what I mean…. And Blogging community really helps me a lot about this…Also Bookstagram. Though I met you guys virtually, it's still friendship and I value it…

      As for number 5… Thank you. Hehehe… I really don't want to get married…. My parents still can't accept it.. I'm eldest and so my younger siblings even threatened they wont marry until I do… I ignored their threats of course. Hahaha…

      Again thank you for the kind words and you definitely, hundred percent deserve the nomination. 🙂 🙂

      1. You are very welcome. And thank you in return.
        I understand what you mean by the insecurities and not being comfortable and able to relax around most people. Can definitely relate. I have that same problem. It is much better than it was in the past all I can say is: give it time: it will eventually get better.
        Exactly: I have definitely met some wonderful people through here that have become true friends. You included of course.
        Haha…well…you will never know though. One day you might meet someone that will sweep you of your feet. It does happen you know 😊
        Thanks again for all the sweet and kind words.: Appreciate it. 😀

        1. Yeah I’m trying to get out of my shell little by little.. 🙂 🙂 And you’re right, the people here are amazing.. maybe because we all have the same goal,.. to affect people in a good way through our own thoughts. 🙂 🙂
          Sweep me off my feet? Ha! whoever that guy be, good luck to him…. hahaha….
          —Thanks too. 🙂 🙂

  3. Yay!! I’m so glad you did the award, Lili, you so, so deserve it. Your facts were so awesome, honestly (way better than mine because I’m boring). And thank you so much for the shout-out and the kind words. ❤️ I hope you had fun with this.

    Happy reading, lovely!

      Happy reading to you too.. 🙂 Thanks again for the nomination…

    1. Hi LaRonda, you really deserve the award… 17 is too young.. hehe… But maybe it’s possible.. I actually have no idea.
      Btw, I just read your bio and although our age is 7 years apart, we have so many things in common. Im from a NO-reading family too adn my closet isfilled with sweatpants too or shorts (the comfy ones.) 🙂 🙂 And may I add, worn out oversized shirts… hehehe…

      Looking forward to your post. 🙂

  4. Congrats in you award it’s well deserved! And thank you for the nomination! Wansn’t expecting it in a bit! 😀 And how come you don’t believe when people call you dearest? Your blog screams that in every way!!!!
    Now for the facts, we actually have a lot in common 😀 I also re-read harry potter every year! I think last year was the only one I didn’t do it and I also re-watch the movies now and then, although that one is not that regular! 😛
    I don’t also really have sweet tooth for cakes to be honest. I love to bake them though, however normally what happens is that I make them and my boyfriend eats it all in less of a week, which is completely fine by me and makes me really happy, since I can’t cook (I burnt rice the other day) he is the one preparing the meals, so having him eating something that I made and completely loving it just makes me… well happy xD
    About “The One”, well I don’t think that you can really chose that. I never believed in destiny until I met my boyfriend, it was one of those stories where we met online and from the first conversation we were super into each other, some weeks later we met in person and started dating right away… It has past almost 5 years now, did I wanted/thought of settling down in the age of 20? No! But the reality is, the feeling ends up being so strong that you don’t want anything more. And although not married in paper, we have been living together for more than 1 year now and it’s like being merried to be honest xD (maybe one day I’ll talk about my love story in my blog).
    I didn’t studied eletrical engineering, but I studied computer engineering XD Being creative as I am of course it didn’t last for long and the next year I was starting a new degree in management.
    I’ve talked about this in my 100 followers post, my favourite color is also blue, to the point in a day I just realized my closet looked like 50 shades of blue. Decided to buy different colours on that day forward. xD
    Last, but not the least I also really like Taylor Swift (although I like the last album she dropped), I think she is super intelligent and really knows how to do and has a huge work ethic. And yeah, her music is not only melodies (like most of pop songs) they always tell a story and well… Probably because she does write her own musics, making them more personal (although I don’t really care for the pop singers who don’t write their own musics, they are performers and their job is mainly to entertain).
    Sorry, for the long post! But I really enjoyed to read your post and see so many similarities that I had to comment them all 😀 Again,congrats in your award! 😛

    1. First of all, don’t be sorry about the long comment, I love comments… And I love reading YOUR comment… My God, you and your boyfriend is sooooo cute…Awww,, if only I live near you guys, I might be a constant guest at your place… So sweet you two. I’m glad you’re happy finding your love…And DEFINITELY, post about your love story.. It’s heartwarming, especially that the way you talk about it, love is obviously present…
      About Taylor.. I must say, though her last album is somehow different than her early albums, it’s the best one yet… It’s like she found her true music. Not that the previous are unlikeable… anywya, as long as she’s still telling her stories, I don’t mind what kind of music she’s singing… 🙂 🙂 🙂
      Shades of Blue… Hahaha..weirdly though, Im not fond of clothes with colors.. My closet if filled with gray, black and white.. Seriously. But aside from clothes(and shoes) yeah I’m all blue.. 🙂 🙂
      Thanks again for this comment and for sharing your love story… Im moved…
      And you deserve the award.. 🙂 🙂

  5. Lili, thank you so much for nominating me!!
    So, Liebster means dearest?! That’s… Kinda cool actually 😁😊

    I eat chocolate….I eat anything sweet, unless I don’t like it. But I usually don’t crave things sweet, unless it’s cheesecake. I’ll always have a slice of that😂

  6. Congrats, Lili! I am so glad that you have won an award as you write so many amazing posts. I could your blog all day if I had the time!

    Oooh! I love your answers. I am also really scared of depths so it would not surprise you that I have a fear of heights. I cannot go on roller coasters because of it. Also, chili ice cream. Hmm, I have never heard of that. Is it spicy? Is it sweet? Where do you get it? If I make it, will I win on “Guy’s Grocery Games”? You must tell me all the secrets about this dish or I will die. No, I won’t, but still, where did this delicious treat come from?! Also, I really enjoyed you answering all the other questions and making up your own. Why is everyone more creative than me? I probably would just write “um” all the time. Also, Lili. No special man is wanted in your life. *GASP* However, I can understand as some men are immature and not book characters. Why can’t book characters be real? But even then, I have had a strict plan since I was young, and since I hate change, I will probably never marry. It doesn’t even shock my parents as I have been drilling it into their minds since I was very little.

    Anyway, great chatting with you! Have fun bragging and shoving your award in your family’s faces! 😛

    1. Weirdly, I’m not afraid of heights… Like I love all rides… And chili ice cream? It’s a delicacy frm a province where I was raised here in the philippines and is known for its fondness for spicy foods. 🙂 It’s not really spicy but kinda minty… I love it. I really, really do. 🙂 🙂 Hahaha… you’re forgetting I’ve read your posts too not only in your blog.. So I know you ARE creative. 🙂 🙂 🙂 But thanks much you enjoyed reading my posts.

      And yeah, no man is wanted… I’m okay being single, thank you so much.. hehehe… *deep sigh* If only book characters are real..

      Ha, it’s okay if you don’t get married as well, you see I have a plan to migrate in America or maybe England.. you can just go live with me… I don’t mind… I love bookish housemates. 🙂 🙂 🙂
      Wish my parents are the same though… They don’t take it well… hahaha..


      1. Oooh! Yes, we could own huge bookshelves if we were to be bookish housemates! I really like the idea of England as well; however, I do not know if I would have as much courage as you to move my butt out of my home country. Also, thanks for the description for that delectable chili ice cream. I guess it is true that I learn something new everyday!

        Also, no problem. I love reading your posts! You are so creative and you happens to almost always have a new post listed everyday. (Also, thanks for the comment on my creativity. I am blushing so much!) Have a great day, and good luck on convincing your parents!

        1. eeek.. 🙂 🙂 You know you’re so modest.. You really are creative.. When I was your age I can’t even make one proper review.. Anyway…. if we to become housemates, every walls would be filled with books… That is for sure.. And don’t worry, Even I is afraid of migrating… My country is really different than your or England. 🙂 🙂

          We’ll learn how to make that chili ice cream… 🙂 🙂 Good night/day to you… It’s midnight here now. 🙂
