Dragon’s Loyalty Award

Cynic, an original name I made for a dear blogger friend, from The Finicky Cynic has nominated me for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award. This is the first time I’ve received this award, so a double thank you! Just so you know, I like to think of myself as Norberta, the Norwegian Ridgeback.

On Googling, I found that The Dragon’s Loyalty Award is an award for the loyal fan/commenter, whether the recipient is a fellow blogger or just a someone who follows and comments regularly. 

So, the rules of the award are:

  • Put the award’s logo on your post.
  • Thank the person who nominated you and put a link to their blog.
  • Nominate 15 other bloggers.
  • Let your nominees know you have nominated them.
  • Post 7 facts about yourself.

Facts about myself:

1. I’m actually surprised that I never told this to you before, but I lived in Bhutan till I was 4.
2. When I was 8/9/10, me and my cousin had a Momos eating competition. I ate 19, yet I lost by a very small margin though. It was because my mom was making them and she was tired, so she asked me to lose the challenge. #idealdaughter
3. I attended class nursery twice, once in India and once in Bhutan.
4. I once received 24.5/25 in English and my teacher called my paper ‘flawless’ in front of the entire class. It is my proudest moment.
5. I binge watch OTH and FRIENDS.
6. Bhoppan² (hey there, creepy friends!) propose to go on a road trip to Goa and get a similar tattoo there as a mark of their friendship once they finish with class 12.
7. I painted this.

Five facts about me:

3. I’m on a strict diet so as to lose some weight before the school farewell in February’16.

The Real Neat Blog Award.

The beautiful blogger from Echoes of Life, Rewa had nominated me for The Real Blogger Award, my first. And I’m so happy. Thank you for this award Rewa. I am grateful that you find my blog competent for this. Anyways, for all my readers, she writes all things which are interesting to read. Do visit her blog.

real-neat-blog-award

The rules for the award go like this:

  • Insert the award logo onto your post.
  • Answer the seven questions they asked you.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you
  • Nominate other bloggers and ask them seven questions (let them know you’ve nominated them!)

Rewa’s questions are:

  1. What’s your favorite movie?
    Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Kal Ho Naa Ho and Silver Lining Playbooks are my top three. I don’t have a favorite movie, I have favorites.
  2. Do you prefer reading fiction or non-fiction?
    I prefer, buy and enjoy fictions. I find non fiction extremely slow and boring, though I’d like to change that.
  3. What made you start blogging?
    This is a question that I’ve answered in every award post. Here again: I’d always been a scribbler. I’d keep writing stuff and usually it ended up in the dustbin, so he thought that it’d be better if I put it somewhere crazy, like-minded people to read it (no offence!).
  4. Are you a morning person or a night person?
    I’m a mornight person 😛 I have periods of being a specific person. Like, for three months, I’m a night person, staying awake till four or five doing nothing, and for the next three months, I’d wake on five in the morning and exercise. Lately, I’m a sleeper, perpetually drowsy.
  5. What musical instrument would you love to master?
    Drums or the piano or guitar or flute.
  6. What’s your happiest childhood memory?
    I’ve faint memories of a trip we’d undertaken when I was seven-ish to Dalhousie, Chail and Khajiyaar. It was one of the best times of my life. We gone with our aunt’s family, whose kids were small too, and then it was all enjoyment. We had no phones, laptops anything, and we just talked and talked and had fun. I remember staying in a trailer kind of a thing in front of the woods, and in the morning, our dad took us four children for a walk there early morning and then we returned, everyone was scared that some animal took us. I remember staying at a guest suite, which had two rooms with a common lobby and that there used to be a dog there and he used to scare us to hell, and then early mornings, we could see the mountain peaks from the lobby in the beautiful sunlight and have Maggi. Those were good days. It was one of the best times of my life.
  7. What’s your favorite color?
    Blue. All shades.

The nominees for this award are:

Insidethelifeofmoi
La Sua Principessa
The Finicky Cynic
