1 Win 2 Awards & 7 facts about ME

First of all, thanks for all the suggestions made on my last post here. I will keep that in mind. I am no more thinking of making 3 blogs but how I shape up this blog is something I am still thinking on and will let you know in the due course :) :)
Now some Yay!!!! moments :)
I won a Giveaway at Shalini's Blog Reading and Chickens and I am so delighted :). I am still thinking of what to get with my Amazon Gift Card. Winning simply makes me happy :)

I also got a "Happy Blogger's Award" from Anjana of Maayeka. She posts some amazing recipes completely Mom Style :) :) Thanks Anjana :)

Now here comes the difficult task of how to pick the bloggers to pass on the award. I do not really want to pick and choose, so I have chosen the easiest way out. For this award I will choose the first 10 bloggers to comment on my previous post and for the next award I will choose the next 15 bloggers.
Some of these bloggers have been with me for quite a while now, while some are new to my blog, but all are equally important to me :)

I hope I am not breaking any rules and am being nice, fair and SMART  :D :D :D

I am passing this award to following bloggers. You in turn have to pick up the award and pass it onto 10 fellow bloggers.

And there is one more award: The Versatile Blogger Award from Bikram of Me and My Random Thoughts. Thanks Bikram for the award :)

   The Rules for the Versatile Blogger Award are:
  • Nominate 15 fellow Bloggers
  • Inform the Bloggers of their nomination
  • Share 7 Random things about yourself
  • Thank the Blogger who nominated you
  • Add the following Versatile Blogger Award picture to your Blog Post 

I nominate following bloggers for this award:

Now here are 7 random things about me:
  • I do not like chocolate cakes and ice creams (weird???), I only love milk chocolates in small dozes, no dark ones for me.
  • I paint with coffee but I hate drinking it. I do not drink tea either, so no bad habits of bad tea or coffee in my house :)
  • If I realize that I don't have this particular thing, i suffer from a desperate need to buy it as if I am going to die without it and then the moment the purchase is made, I tend to forget about it, mission accomplished, you see :)
  • I read Fiction only, no inspirational, preachy, self help books for me
  • I love to cook but only special things, everyday cooking bores me
  • I absolutely love to dance
  • I love to travel and any sort of journey: rail, road, air excites me :)



  1. Congrats on your win and awards :)

    I don't drink tea/coffee, I love to dance & I LOVE to travel too! Yay!

  2. aw I love your random facts! So Cool!! I looove to travel too, Im actually thinking of doing a random weekly 'Global Pics' segment on my blog of places I've been throughout the world. What do you think?

    Im not really a huge fan of nonfiction either...I love to be swept away into a magical fantasy world for a hr and dream of what would be in an alternate reality lol! But one nonfiction book I would recomment is 'Screw It Lets Do It' by Richard Branson. Its really short and to the point but quite inspiring - he is one helleva man!

    oh and huge congrats on winning the prize!!
