The Liebtser Award

Hello again. I was suppose to post this like 3 weeks ago but something came up and so many stories blah blah blah.

I was nominated by Coffee Beans and High Heels for the liebster award and I'm excited to share this award with others.
I haven't heard of the Liebster award, but it feels great to be nominated.

The Liebtser Award

  • This award exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers.
  • It has German origins – the word “liebster” has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart and boyfriend (really?)
  • It follows similar principles as a chain letter, in the sense that it should be passed forward to a certain number of people.
Got to thank and link the person who nominated you.
2.  Display the rules of the award.
3. Answer 11 questions and write 11 as well.
4.  Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 300 followers and let them know you did.
5.  Write 11 facts about yourself.

11 Facts About Me

  3. Monique Coleman is my inspiration and motivator
  4. I hate frogs (reptiles and amphibians all together) Eww! Eww!! Eww!!!
  5. I used to read books like crazy and watch movies like I'm afraid I might miss something. I can recite lines from movies and sing their soundtracks.
  6. I like reading comic books but I don't own one (Bummer)
  7. I'm romantic in my imagination and heart but don't know how to display it. My first love used to have a problem with that but he still loved me.
  8. I always try to be the good person I'm trying to find or can't find in the world.

Orly's Questions
1.     Why did you start blogging?
Well, I started blogging for the love of it and I wanted to start publishing and sharing my creative literary works online. Before I realized, it turned into a lifestyle/literary blog, but that's cool because I love writing. I want it to be like an interactive online magazine sort of thing or maybe like a TV/online show but in words and pictures.

2.       What is your biggest pet peeve?
Early morning politics argument on radios and TVs in my country. Ugh!!! It pisses me off!

3.       Do you like to mix salty and sweet things?
Hmm, I don't think so. Haven't tried it at all

4.       What are you reading right now?
Christmas After All by Kathryn Lasky. I know, it's not Christmas and I've read it like a thousand things already but I'm obsessed with it.

5.       Are you a morning girl or a night owl?
I'm more of a morning girl. It depends on what I'm doing at night if it doesn't make me feel sleepy. I can saty awake at Christmas, New Year's Eve, Festivals but I'm mostly a morning person ;)

6.       What was the craziest “Would you rather” question you have ever heard?
Sorry, can't remember. I have heard a lot but can't recollect one right now. :(

7.       What is one thing you can’t live without?
Chocolate!!!! I can't live without chocolate

8.       Favorite animal?
I love puppies, if you are talking about tameness. From the wild, I love the leopard.

9.       One fashion trend you totally hate?
There's this big square bag in town that has different colours (more than 3 )on one bag. Most ladies are holding it and  I hate the look of it.

10.   Do you like snail mail?
I love snail mail. I love to write and read letters. Send me your address to for one from me.

11.   What is your ideal date?
If it/s daytime, take me to the most quiet part of a beautiful beach where we can lay down, hold hands, chat and have snacks. At night time, we eat something light, chat, laugh, listen to music, watch the stars and slow dance by the pond.
