I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by my newfound blogging gal pal: lifewithlilred!
Here are the fun questions she’s asked and my answers:
-What’s the one beauty item you couldn’t live without?
What? One beauty item?! Okay, fine, I guess lip balm. Wait–eyeliner. Do skincare products count? Then I would go with a good cleanser. Shoot, this first question is way too hard.
-Who are three of your favorite bands?
I’m not really a band or artist follower, but I will give this question a shot. I guess…Train, Evanescence and The Beatles.
-The best gift you’ve ever received?
The opportunity to live and grow in this country. Yes, I went all deep on you guys. If it wasn’t for my brave, talented parents making the HUGE leap from leaving the country they grew up in to a whole new strange one, I would not have had any of the wonderful experiences in my life. I am thankful everyday. Best gift ever.
-The weirdest food you’ve ever ate?
Honestly, coming from China, where diary products are just not very common, my next sentence will be surprising to anyone who is not Asian. To this day, I still think eating a plain block of cheese is just about the weirdest thing one can do. To me, squid, pork hock, or even oxtail is really not that weird.
-Favorite childhood movie?
It’s definitely a 3-way tie between Terminator II, Alien II and True Lies.
-Your favorite pair of shoes?
My golden blinged-out wedding heels!
-A story of the worst date you’ve ever been on?
Haha, probably when I agreed to go out with my hip hop TA my freshmen year of college ;). When he picked me up, the whole parking lot was shaking because his sound system was blasting out the windows. He proceeded to not wear a seat belt and insisted to drive to a location that was half a mile away. We got some milkshakes of which I paid for with my student swipes and he pretended to like everything I liked.
Him: What’s your favorite show?
Me: Family Guy
Him: Oh my god, me too. Who’s your favorite actor?
Me: Johnny Depp.
Him. No way, me too. Do you like skydiving?
Me: Um, no.
Him: Pssccch. Me neither. That stuff is dangerous.
I pretended to pick up a non-existent call from my mom saying it was an emergency and I had to leave to talk to her more. I assured him I could walk the whole way back myself and let’s just say there was no second date.
Gone with the Wind.
-Do you have any pets?
H to the yes! Pangur Ban, my furry, gray love of my life kitten.
-What is your favorite subject to blog about?
Probably my documentation of good food. I like to blog about fashion, travel, beauty and shoes too though!
