Versatile Blogger Award/ One Lovely Blog Award

Hi everyone. Melissa from Bubbles, Glitters, Unicorns (blog link) has nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award/ One Lovely Blog Award (she nominated me for either one but if I have to choose one I think it'll have to be One Lovely Blog Award.. because I do love the word "lovely"). I do feel very happy because I think that awards like these are such a lovely way to show support and appreciation within the blogging community. 

I also want to use this post to say a big thank you to all my readers for visiting my blog and also to those who took the time to leave me sweet comments. I will continue to work hard to write more interesting posts for you guys so please continue to support my blog. 

According to Melissa's post, for either award, I have to write 7 random facts about myself and then nominate 15 bloggers who are relative new to blogging for the award.

So without further ado, let's get started.

#1 I only started wearing makeup at the age of 17. I grew up with 3 brothers and my mother has a very basic beauty routine, so I practically dressed like a boy (think loose jeans, polo tees, t-shirts and sneakers) and had zero clue about skincare and makeup. When I was 16, I moved to Australia and that is when I started reading magazines and blogs, which led to the development of my own dress sense as well as my love for makeup.

The first makeup item that I bought was a MAC holiday palette. 

#2 I used to be a golfer (and I was not too bad at it too). My dad is an avid golfer so golf is my family's official sport. I used to play golf about 5 days a week when I was in high school but I eventually stopped when I moved to Melbourne.

I do really enjoy the sport but I couldn't bear getting tan lines.

#3 I speak 7 languages/dialects (well, technically 6.5). Cantonese is my mother tongue, I studied in a Mandarin primary school and English and Malay are mandatory in Malaysian schools. French is the 0.5 because even though I studied French for 3 years in university as an elective, I haven't practiced much since so I am not very fluent anymore. I studied Japanese during a semester break because I love Japan and I get a lot of practice from reading Japanese magazines as well as watching dramas and movies. I am currently studying Korean because I love Korea a lot too: everything from food, makeup, fashion, music, tv shows and more.

#4 I love chocolates but I do not like chocolate ice creams. 

#5 I drink tea more than I drink water. I use a gigantic mug (pint size) to brew my tea and I probably drink 8 of those a day. My favourite teas are green tea and chinese tea.

#6 I am the sort of person who has a very hard time throwing things away and as a result I have accumulated a lot of random items. I currently have a collection of makeup, toy cameras, seal soft toys (mamegoma/ little seal on the blog), random cards and notes I received over the years, magazines, paper bags, pouches and the list goes on.

#7 I can only control one side of my brow, which means that I can't actually voluntarily do the raise both brows in shock facial expression. 

Hopefully I am not overly lengthy in my random facts. Just in case you are bored, here's some cute photos of Hiro for your entertainment.

I have 9 blogs that I am nominating for either/both awards:
Sue (
Meg Casson (
Jasmine (
Aya (
Tulip Love (not sure of her real name) (
Yesica (
Lily (
Miss6 (
Gerry (

This is it from me so far.

  8. I share a lot of things in common with you judging by these facts :) Wish I could speak so many languages/dialects though, English is all I know. I didn't wear makeup that much until perhaps even later than you (except a tiny bit of eyeliner), though my first makeup purchase definitely wasn't MAC :p It was decidedly cheaper hehe.
