Please don't stop me

Over at my old blog, I've shared so many personal details which is something I have not done here. Ze good ol' blog chronicled my emotional "growth" and contained details so precious to me I could not dare delete it. So anyway, receiving this award from Meream of Bored and Crafty (thank you!!!) was pretty neat and unexpected, and a perfect excuse to share something about myself.

Ze rules:
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave me this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

1. I have not been eating beef for at least 6 years. It started when I read about GMOs (which didn't mention about beef being genetically modified) and then I opened a can of corned beef and saw a film of fat in there. I found it rather disgusting and swore not to eat anything beef-related (beef-flavored, beef-smelling...) since then.

2. My favorite cuisines are Italian, Japanese and Filipino. Our team's trip to Imperial Palace rekindled my love  for Japanese food which, for more than a couple of weeks now, I have been professing by dragging the boyfriend to eating all these raw food that he actually hates. And you can always get an affirmative from me on adobo and pinakbet.

4. When I was a kid, I dreamed of becoming an astronaut or a forensic scientist. These were fueled by devouring our Webster unabridged dictionary and encyclopedia, and watching forensic investigation shows in HBO.

5. I taught myself HTML, CSS and basic Italian while I was in university. I could barely remember Italian phrases now, though.

6. When I was living in Manila, I learned to watch movies alone. The first movie I watched by myself was Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros at Glorietta. I swear I almost always watch a movie every weekend and was pretty much a loner. Due to sentimental and habitual reasons, I prefer Ayala cinemas.

7. I love t-shirts with cute and funny prints. I have shirts with Mythology Class (from Arnold Arre's graphic novel of the same name), Astroboy, PS I Love You (yes, with the young lovers Sharon and Gabby though I haven't seen the movie), and Pilita Corrales prints on them. Except for Astroboy, they don't fit me anymore! :( Must lose weight.

I'm giving out this blogger award to Abbie, Ann, Gwini, Aisa, Eden, Mae, Robyn, Gizelle and Ching! Some of you may have done or received this alright, so let's just say it's my way saying "Hello!" and "Keep on inspiring!" :D
