Stylish Blogger Award

My very first award. Wow! My thanks goes to p3chandan ( Malar ( 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, 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 share with you:
