I’m a Versatile Blogger!

The Versatile Blogger Award

I was nominated by three kind bloggers for this award and I’m very grateful.  First by Natalie Beech, she’s a “writer, editor, and a professional language whore.”  Thank you so much Natalie for the nomination, all your thoughtful comments on my blog, and for inspiring me to continue blogging 🙂

Second was by Pondering Spawned who’s kind enough to host the WTOE (World Through Our Eyes) for all artist out there.  Several artist including me have already participated and it was fun!  Thanx so much Pondering Spawned for the nomination, for featuring my gingerbread art and for your kind comments on my posts. 🙂

And third most recent was by Ajaytao whose blog is just so full of fascinating and inspiring arts and photographs.  Ajaytao, thanx for nominating me, reading thru my posts, and encouraging me to keep blogging.

Rules : 

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers who you think deserves this award.  Include a link to their blog.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Seven Things About Me

1.)   I make my own ice cream (without using ice cream machine). Recipe right HERE!

artistic milestone

2.) I only go to parlor to trim my hair every 6 months.

3.)    I’m curious about almost anything when it comes to baking and cooking.   Last week, I successfully made organic cream cheese.  I simply got a pint of Organic Greek Style yoghurt, pour it on a cheese cloth and let the whey drip overnight like the photo on the right.  The end result is all natural cream cheese 🙂

4.) I made a rabbit costume for my daughter on her birthday, which goes pretty well with her cake 🙂

         So many food to eat but she only ate chips that day.  < a mouth full of chips >

5.) I found my prey camouflaging in my sister’s marionberry tree. Click on the photo to enlarge.

Can you spot it ???  His not exactly cute but it’s right in the middle, it’s got red head and dark blue body, similar to the color of the marionberries.  How awesome is nature!  I let him go since he made it to my blog post.

6.) My height is 5’5.  Quite short, yet I don’t wear heels more than an inch high.

7.) I dedicate 4-7 hours a week to blog —  writing new posts and reading other blogs.  Usually during my lunch hour or when my daughter is already asleep at night.  I then schedule my post to be published the next day.  That too much? Too little? Too late?

  1. Did you make the cake too? The picture is adorable, and thanks for the shout out!
    Also, do you think the Greek Yogurt would curdle too much in the hot/humid Florida environment? I’d like to try making my own cottage cheese, but I worry that it would spoil too much in Florida (don’t want to make myself or my loved ones sick).

    • I wish I did but no, I didn’t make the cake. I love cottage cheese but have never tried making it myself so I can’t give you a solid suggestions about that sorry. 🙂

  2. Awwwww! Thank you, Abi for nominating me! Kaka-pressure! LOL! I don’t think I deserve that kind of award, writing palang fail nako dyan! Hahaha!

    But thank you, Abi! I really appreciate it, I’m so flattered! *blush*

    • Your welcome Sha. I believe that the quality of the content your writing is what matters more, very evident in your website, so keep it up! Oh and thanx so much for the following me on facebook 🙂

  3. Hey Abby! Congrats for the award, and thank you so much for the nomination! Haven’t been blogging much lately, this inspires me somewhat to start again! And, omg, I love your daughter.She is SO cute! I adored the cake as well. Thanks for the lovely post. And, keep blogging. =)

  4. Congratulations on your award and thanks for mentioning my vlog. I enjoyed reading the seven things about you. I’ve always wanted to try that cream cheese idea. The whey is supposed to be nutritious and easily digestible.

    • Whey is good but not exactly tasty, I actually just pinched my nose and drank all the whey down, I don’t know what else to do with it. Thanx for commenting! 🙂

  5. Congratulations! I always enjoy reading about other bloggers and getting to know more about them. Cute bunny outfit, and I love the cake! I think it’s great you have a blogging schedule. It has tried to take over my life!

    • Thanx so much Patti! I don’t have a strict blogging schedule, not really, I just blog instead of watch TV when I’m ready to retire from a long day, it relaxes me, often falling asleep in the middle of writing a post actually. Most of the things I blog about are often about what I do on fun weekends.
