blog award #13: honest scrap

Written by Darlyn At Wednesday, May 26, 2010
Another award that I received not so long ago was from Hannah @ Changing My Definition of Life. She is one of my very dear friend even though I never meet her. Well, this is the sweetness of our book blogs community. We are friends without boundaries. No matter where we are, we stick together =) OK2. Thanks Hannah for this award. I know it's quite old news since you passed it to me but this is the only time I have to pass it to others.

The award requires me to list 10 honest things about myself before pass it to 10 other bloggers. So, here we go;

1) I love to read mangas and watch animes. My favorite are Naruto, Bleach, One Piece and Kekkaishi. I always read it online at or watch anime on DVD.

2) I love cooking but not everyone loves what I cooked. What can I say, I love experimenting with recipes and just thank God I never blows up the kitchen, yet.

3) I am the eldest in my family, but I'm the most spoiled person ever. Even my youngest sibling says that.

4) I am very obsessed with my weight. I am 161 cm with 57 kg (it's around 125 lbs) which means I'm quite chubby and short =(

5) I started dating when I'm 20 years old and luckily with my fiancee. We've been engaged nearly for 3 years now. Yeah, I know. For the record, I'm the one who always postpones our wedding. It's not that I'm not ready but I'm here and he's there (we are on long-distance relationship), and I'm quite busy with my research for my master's degree.

6) I hate people who smokes near me or when I'm around.

7) I love gardening!

8) I love cartoon and comedies.

9) I love sports. I love netball and basketball. But I never try swimming. I kind of having a trauma with water. I mean swimming pool.

10) I hope I can be a good taxonomist/biologist. *LOL*

OK. That's all about me. So, 10 other blogger that I would love to pass this to are;

1) Aly @ Fantasy4Eva
2) Cmash @ CMash Loves to Read
3) Bobbie @ 'Til We Read Again
4) Sara @ YA Vampire Books
5) Keysha and Mari @ Smart Girls Read
6) SB @ Not Too Serious I Hope
7) Danielle/The1stDaughter @ There's A Book
8) Sarah @ Sarah's Book Reviews
9) Pattepoilue @ One Book Away From Heaven
10) Fredamans @ Freda's Voice

Actually, I think everyone deserve this award. Because we are honest with our reviews, thoughts, ideas, what we like, what we don't like and all. Just because the award requires only 10, so I have to list 10. If it requires 100, I'll promise I'll list 100! Means you all deserve this award too. And I believe someday it will be pass on to you too =)
