My very first award. Wow! My thanks goes to p3chandan (http://gorightinmygarden.blogspot.com/)and Malar (http://mypottedgarden.blogspot.com) for presenting this award to me. I am deliriously happy that you think I deserve it. I would also like to thank the person who created this award!Great idea.
In accepting this award, these are the things I have to do:
1.Post linking back to the person who gave me the award.
2.Share 7 random thngs about myself.
3.Award 15 recently discovered bloggers.
4.Drop them a note and tell them about it.
Here we go, then. I am trying to keep to the rules by selecting new bloggers, and by that I assume those who started blogging at about the same time I did...last year. I am also trying to scan whether they have already received this award. If indeed I have made the mistake of bestowing them the same award, then take it as an added honour.

As requested, here are 7 random things ( really random) about myself:
1. I love ballroom dancing, and enjoy the cha-cha and rhumba most.
2. I won't swim in a pool unless it has no deep end!
3. I love swing and standards and light jazz, so among my favourite singers are Sinatra,
Laura Fygi, Diana Krall, Michael Buble, Patrizio Buane...and many more singers from
the genres I like.
4. I would love to be able to sing in French, Spanish and Italian perfectly, but this is a
dream that is probably going to remain a dream forever, as my singing skills are
laughable and I don't speak those languages.(Sigh)
5. I truly relish my cup of coffee, and relish even more having coffee and cake with
(Two more to go...hmmm, what can be considered random...?)
6. I have a pair of slippers which have sparkly, golden sequins.
7. And wait for this - this is my favourite thing to share with others about myself - I just
adore anything hot and spicy- hot curries, spicy Thai food, chilli-laden Hunan (a province
in China) food, Malay food with aromatic chilli-paste, wasabi...you name it, as long as it
is hot, that's my kind of comfort-food!
I had great fun putting together these images of what I like to have around me...to share with you:
