A Glimpse into My Journey

One step at a time.

Sunshine Blogger Award

Thank you, Shefali, for nominating me for this award.  Your genuine and thoughtful posts definitely bring sunshine into this world. 🙂  Keep doing what you’re doing!


Here are the questions:

1) Do you believe in love at first sight? Why?

Yes, I do believe in love at first sight.  I think our first impressions of people say a lot about them, and sometimes we just know right away if that person is meant for us.  Of course, looks can be deceiving and there are always exceptions.

2) What type of people you dislike the most?

People that are manipulative, cheaters, liars.

3) If you could change something of history, what would that be?

That cigarettes, alcohol, and casinos were never invented.

4) A travel destination that you have visited, which is most memorable out of all? Why?

I will have to pick two destinations for this question.

First, Disney World because even though I was very young when I went, it left me very happy memories.  All the characters, rides, fireworks…  It truly is the happiest place on earth.  I’ve been there once, and I hope to go back again some day. 🙃

Second, and more recently, Japan because I was there on the day of my birthday, and that was also the day I got the most mosquito bites ever in one day.  I was counting initially, but there were so many I stopped keeping track.  It was definitely a memorable (and very itchy) birthday.

5) If you could change something about yourself, what would that be?

Sometimes I wish I were braver and had no fears.

6) Do you have any superstitious beliefs?

I wouldn’t say I’m a superstitious person, but I do remember someone saying that if your left eye twitches, something bad will happen, but if your right eye twitches, something good will happen.

7) Do you believe in occult and its predictions? Why?

I’ve honestly never thought about this, so no..?

8) Name one of your favourite books, which you feel everyone should read?

I haven’t read too many books lately, but I really liked Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë.

9) What’s the first thing about a person that catches your eye?

Whether they have a good sense of humor.  And their hair. 😉

10) One thing without which you think you wouldn’t be able to live? (Don’t say oxygen..lol)

Not a “thing,” but my family.  (Didn’t want to say smartphone, of course. :P)

  5. If you could travel back in time to any time period, which would you like to travel to?  Why?

  7. What is your favorite breakfast food?
  8. If you could only eat 3 foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?

    Thanks for the nomination, but I am not doing awards for the time being, hope you don’t mind 😊
    The mosquito bites in Japan, I am sure it was their way to wish you. 😛 A dog licks your face when he loves us, mosquitoes can only bite even if they love you.😉😉

    Thank you so much for the honor. I have asked to do a couple before, but taking care of my husband doesn’t give me much spare time. However, I am going to give it a try.

    I have done one, but really wasn’t sure how to do it. Probably doesn’t look good, but did my best.

      Thanks again for nominating me! I went to Tokyo and Kyoto. Tokyo had more of an urban, modern feel to it, while Kyoto seemed to have the cultural, historical feel (i.e. a lot of shrines and temples). I think you should still go if you get the chance. The views are worth it. Well, maybe not worth all the mosquito bites and the sweating. 😛 But still. My friend is actually visiting Japan right now and just told me about all the mosquito bites she got. 🙈 Maybe the mosquitoes just love us.

    Thank you for the nomination. I really am very flattred and humbled that you thought of me 🙂 I always thought that if my left eye twitches it means a good thing will happen, or someone will come to visit you. As for believing in predictions, yes, I do – I believe in fate and that all things happen for a reason 🙂
