Questions Asked of Me

1. What would be your perfect day?

My perfect day would consist of the following:

  • Waking up on holiday around 7am.
  • Prosecco brunch.
  • Couple of hours shopping spree.
  • Exploring a new location.
  • Street food.
  • Writing a blog post.
  • Praying for guidance and to express gratitude for my blessings.

I deeply love and adore all the people in my life, and my perfect day would not be complete without spending time with all of them; boyfriend, parents, cousins, friends, etc. β™‘

2. What is the favourite thing you own and why?

Oof! This was a really tough question, so I had to list three different things:

  1. A wristwatch – To commemorate graduating from university, my parents gave me a silver watch which was a complete surprise and I’ve worn it every day for the past five years.
  2. GiftedandChilling – My boyfriend thoughtfully bought my site’s official domain for my birthday.
  3. A designer handbag – For over a year, I saved up some money to purchase my dream bag.

3. What did you dream about last night?

Honestly, I cannot remember! πŸ˜… Though the night before, I was told that I was talking in my sleep…

4. If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?

Is it same to assume that asking for more wishes is out of the question? Haha!

  1. I wish that I could pay off my parents’ mortgage and grant them a life of financial freedom.
  2. I wish for everybody around the world to live in a happy and safe home with unconditional love and support.
  3. I wish to have a joyful future with a healthy family.

5. If you had to live in another period, what would you choose?

I would choose to live in the 80s because I love the music, films, and fashion from that decade.

6. What foreign language(s) would you want to master and why?

It would be great to master sign language and Tagalog. I choose sign language because it is universal, and Tagalog because it is spoken in my family.

7. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Adapt to circumstances when they change unexpectedly, rather than act on impulse or overthink.

8. What’s the luckiest thing that’s ever happened to you?

Winning Β£85 while playing Roulette on holiday last month was incredibly lucky.

9. If you had to describe yourself in only three words, what would you choose?

Affectionate. Patient. Quiet.

10. What words do you think your friends would choose to describe you?

Thoughtful. Stubborn. Indecisive.

11. Which is your favourite movie of all time?

The Devil Wears Prada. It is so iconic! 🀩 I love the writing, the casting/ensemble, and the Vogue montage. I can watch the film on repeat all day.

    I want to thank you for nominating me. It’s such a fun way of getting to know people on WordPress. Unfortunately I am very tied up now with commitments and I am not sure when I will be able to do it. I will try my best but please forgive me if it takes a while.


    • Hi Morag! πŸ’— Thank you so much for your comment 😊 Many congratulations to you, lovely. I fully agree with you that these nominations are a fun and great way to discover more people and blogs on WordPress – that is the biggest perk and motivation πŸ’•
      It’s more than all right, I understand that you have a lot to get through and there’s nothing to forgive. I do look forward to reading your answers πŸ€— Congratulations again on your nomination! It is always a pleasure reading your writing and keep up the great work πŸ₯³πŸ’πŸ‘βœ¨


  3. Congratulations on the well-deserved award! I’m sorry I’m late commenting, I bookmarked the post to come back to when I was on my laptop.

    I enjoyed reading your answers. Your perfect day sounds pretty, well, perfect! It’s so sweet your parents got you a watch for your graduation that you can then wear every day to remember your achievement and how proud they are of you. What’s the dream bag that you bought? I’m curious now πŸ˜„

    I’ll join you in the 80s – that’s my first choice time period too! The cheesy music is the best. I like going out in my car on my own because I just crank up some Cindi Lauper and Duran Duran and everything suddenly seems right with the world. I want to do my hair up and put colourful make-up on, wear fishnet gloves and go all out 80s. I’d probably go without the shoulder pads though.

    Congratulations on your roulette winnings by the way, that’s impressive! That’ll cover some of the cost of that bag you saved up for too πŸ˜‰

    Thank you for the kind nomination, too. I hope you have a restful weekend ahead lovely!

    • Hi Caz! β™‘

      I sincerely apologise for my late reply (went through heightened anxiety in the last couple of months which stunted my concentration and confidence).

      Thank you for your message and for coming back to comment on this post πŸ€— I am grateful for your encouragement and the time you take to share your thoughts and experience on here, it always brings a big smile to my face! πŸ’•

      The watch from my parents is one of the best surprises that I’ve ever received and signifies a milestone in my life and will never forget it πŸ™ My dream bag is from a luxury designer brand ✨ As I do not have any other item to aspire for anymore, I have put the roulette winnings in my savings (little boring but would be helpful for a rainy day) 🀞

      That’s awesome to hear your first choice would be the 80s too! 🀩 You painted the perfect image of driving a car with the best songs blasting through the speakers – it is so easy to get lost in the music and forget about any worries. Maybe one day should find or host an 80s-themed party to go all out in the clothing/make-up/music etc., it would be so much fun.

      I look forward to reading your post on your nomination – you deserve it! πŸ’ I love reading and being educated by your writing, you’re so talented!

      Thank you again for stopping by on my blog 😊 Hope you are enjoying your NYE and that 2022 brings you prosperity, endless happiness, and great memories!!!

      • Adding to your savings after you’ve treated yourself is a smart idea, not boring at all!

        Also, never apologise for a later reply. I don’t always manage to reply to all comments in the first place! I’m sorry about the heightened anxiety; how’re you doing at the moment? I’m always around if ever you want to chat. No pressure of course, but just so you know.

        An 70s themes party? Hell yes!!!! Count me in. When Covid is over (it will be over, right?) That really would be so awesome, wouldn’t it?

        Thank you for your kind words – I likewise wish you all the very, very best for a happy New Year. I hope 2022 treats you kindly! πŸ₯³β€οΈ

      • I’m doing better, thank you for asking πŸ’— I greatly appreciate your kindness and for the offer to chat if you’re available. Please know that I am around too if you would like to talk (no pressure either, but if you’d like to) 🌸

        We gotta do it! A themed party – I love it! Never really been to one before, so it would be a good experience πŸ₯³ Yes, I believe that COVID will be over one day, I want to have some faith stay optimistic πŸ™

        Thank you again for your comment and thoughtful words – you always make me smile ✨

        Sending you lots of love and hugs, dear friend! πŸ€—πŸ’•
