I was nominated for a Liebster award and tagged by Laila to answer 11 questions. Head on over to her blog! Before I continue, I want to nominate: Sya | Farah | Alia. My own list of questions are at the end of this post.
I started blogging maaany years back and then I deleted my old blog, made a new one - repeat that process 2 to 3 times. I can't remember what my expectations were but I just wanted to use it as an outlet to express myself plus I find composing a blog post quite therapeutic.
Has blogging changed you in any way?
It's taught me how to write for an audience. Although I only write about what interests me, at the back of my mind I'm always trying to find a way that'll make my style of writing EASY for people to read. After all, what's the point of me writing to the world if no one can understand me?
What are you passionate about?
I'm passionate about literature, art, music, spirituality, guiding, my family, animals... I don't really think there's many parts of my life that I'm not passionate about. The things I do on a day to day basis, I do with great interest.
What do you think about overcoming fears?
It's exhilarating, scary, but definitely rewarding. It's essential for character building; overcoming my fears was my goal for 2014 and Alhamdullilah I've been doing just that since January.
What do you think about expressing yourself through fashion?
I think some people take expressing themselves through fashion much more seriously than others and that's great! But personally for me, I dress in whatever I'm comfortable with and don't give it much thought.
In less than five words, what defines you?
I am simply myself.
Summer or Winter?
What is your dream travel destination?
As cheesy as this sounds, anywhere with my loved ones is my dream travel destination. If you want a more specific location: anywhere in Malaysia. I love my home country!
Name one thing you want to do before you die.
Touch lives. I'd like to have a positive impact on people's lives.
Could you live without internet connection for a week?
Only if I know I'm getting internet connection after that week is over.
Name an experience you had and would like to repeat once again.
None. This might sound cheesy but life is special because there's no single experience that you can actually repeat. You can walk down the same street again and again but it'll be different each time. You'll see different faces and hear different sounds. You can't replicate moments in your life.
