MiddleMe have be award by a gracious reader, Robert (Blackhorn 33)!

This award recognizes bloggers who have less than 200 followers. (I shall be committed that I will never receive this award – so spread my link around so as to achieve 201 followers – Haha!) This blog award is all about spreading the love and showing that you appreciate other blogs! Most importantly, this award shows that I need to carry on my reading and never ever give up, just because I have friends like you.

I am very blessed and honoured to receive this award with both my heart and my soul. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Now for the serious part:

Rules for The Liebster Award

  1. Make a post thanking and linking the person who nominated me and include the Liebster Award sticker in the post.
  2. Nominate 5-10 other bloggers and notify them of this in one of their posts.
  3. All nominated bloggers are to have less than 200 followers.
  4. Answer the 11 questions posed by your nominator and create 11 different questions for your nominees to answer.  Or, you can repeat the same questions.
  5. Copy these rules into your post.

First of all, please do visit Not in My World!, I think it is an important site to educate and spread word around on child abuse. Children are innocent and should never subject to any form of abuse. Let’s show support to a worthy cause.

Okay, I have maxed out my 10 nominations but don’t worry if you are not named, I have a few more awards coming up… Yes, its been a crazy award week for me! I love you all.. 

Now, my answers to the 11 Questions ~
1.If you had the resources, and were going to do 1 thing for someone(realistic), what would you do, and who for.
One of my readers just discovered that his father is diagnosis with cancer (I will not name who to respect his privacy) but genuinely, I can feel his pain as my grandfather passed on due to lung cancer and Alzheimer’s 6 years ago. Its a scary thought to see your loved one slipping away. So if I have the means, I would make sure that he have all the best medical help within reach and whatever he wants, he gets. 

2. How old were you when you first got into blogging.
I remembered I was 24, maybe 25. One of my ex-boyfriend introduce me to blogging, for he said I have a lot of angst I need to get off my chest and write about it instead of venting on him. Haha! I think that blog might still be floating around somewhere. I’ll read it every now and then to give myself a laugh. 

3. Have you ever posted from a restaurant?
Nope. 🙂

4. Do you always leave a Tip?
Depends at which county I am in. In Singapore and Malaysia, there are already service tax in the restaurants. In fact, I tried to tip a waiter in Singapore before and he returned my tip. 

5. When was the last time you wrote and mailed a letter
Hmm.. That is not too difficult, the last time would be last year when I am still in Shanghai and I post out cards and letters to my loved ones. Yes, I am sentimental that way. 

6. Have you ever took an on-line course, or self-educated on-line?
Yes, I have. I am actually signed on to Coursera for their courses. I was doing Business Strategies midway until I needed to pause to relocate myself to Malaysia. I am planning to settle in, then pick up my course the way I left it. 

7. Describe your blog in exactly 10 words.
Change: Your Job into Career. Work into Passion. Unstuck yourself!

8. Have you researched a post without using any electronics.
Yes, I get inspirations all the time by talking to people around me and I’ll be itching to get home and write all about it. So now I just installed WordPress on my iPhone, that way I can write anytime and anywhere I want (except in China – hate the Firewall). 

9. If you started a blog right now, what would you call it.
If I start another blog? I don’t think I will start another one because having MiddleMe is more than enough for me. I am rather a private person so I don’t necessary will want to write and publicise what I eat or wear but I do admire bloggers who find passion in writing about good food, nice restaurant or following the latest fashion trends. Do you know fashion blogs make the most money out of writing?

10. Who is your biggest fan.
My lil sister. She reads everything I write. She tweets everything I tweet. She forgives me if I am on my Twitter instead of talking to her. She also forgives me that I pay more attention to my readers than her YouTube Channel. 

11. What is the first thing you do when preparing to write a post.
Make myself a good cup of Earl Grey tea, locked myself in the study room and turn on my magic mouse.

Okay now, the fun part (at least, for me) is to come up with 11 questions for my nominees. And here are the questions:
1.Why did you start blogging?
2. Who are your target audience and why did you choose that group as your target?
3. Tell me one thing that you love about yourself?
4. Where is your dream vacation?
5. If you can be transported back to the past, what world event would you change?
6. What is your biggest fear?
7. Who is your role model and describe him or her.
8. What are your goals for your blog this year?
9. How do you motivate yourself when life hits a bump?
10. Name one law/ regulation in your country that you would like to change if you have the power to do so.
11. What define success to you?

Now nominees, go and have fun with my questions! For those who I have not nominate before, watch out for my upcoming award posts!

(ps. To Being1nsanepurpleslobinrecovery and Matt, don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about your gifts. Its coming right up!)

  1. Thank you so much. I’m on the Internet for over 20 years. I try to limit the data related to my identity. For several reasons. The most important, as municipal elected official is, before I retire completely; is to achieve with my team, a new business area of 60 hectares, of which generate 600-750 jobs. My constant efforts over the past year. My son Nicolas who will be 29 years, INPG Engineer, single, will derive personal pride. As for people in my teams. However, you are associated, for I am pleased to recognize you on the Internet. It makes me smile when I read the articles you put online. You’re not alone, of course, I am supported by many users … This motivates me to stay focused on my goal. Kally good day.

  4. Congratulations on the award! Well deserved 🙂 And what honest responses to the questions. I have heard of Coursera but like you, never tried it. I heard that you can learn at your own pace and the courses are pretty in-depth and covers things that you may not think of often. Like you, I’ve never blogged from a restaurant. I’ve also never blogged from my phone or an iPad. When I blog and write, I do it in front of a laptop or computer, maybe even a notebook by my side with ideas.

    Fashion blogs making the most money out of blogging: I’ve heard that! And some of them lots of views, which translate into revenue. I’ve thought about monetising my blog but I’ve come to the conclusion I can’t compete with other blogs. And I believe true happiness comes in things that are free 🙂

      1. Haha!! Thanks for the congrats! Do go and browse through Coursera, you might find a course useful. It’s free anyways. I do blog from my phone but I’ll not post from my phone, rather go through the final check with my laptop. 🙂

  5. Kally, you have a Heart of Gold, yet you retain your business sense.
    I will always feel Blessed that Our pathways through this life intersected, even if only for a short time.
    I could not avoid reading each comment, and I wish to say that you have made very good friends.
    At the end of the day, I don’t believe as some say, that the winner has the most toys.
    I think that whom ever has met even a few people, and left them with a good feeling about themself, and enjoyed even a moment as a freind and neighbor, is a rich person by my way of thinking.

      1. OH…. Kally, for that you know … lol
        Kally, a moment to smile, and maybe laugh with a friend, makes all the days problems and sadness a little easier to deal with; and I believe by now you are aware of the weight my business puts on my heart and feelings. You are like a ray of sunshine peeking through the shop window, and you always bring a smile….
        You are a very Good Friend Kally
        Robert
