One Lovely Blog Award!


I would like to give the biggest, warmest hug to Avid Observer for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award. If you don’t know the Avid Observer, go check ’em out! Their blog features thought provoking life lessons, that are both humorous and inspiring! 

A Giant Thank You to you all. These bloggers posses their own unique styles of representing their thoughts. Do make sure to visit their Lovely blogs.


  • Each nominee must thank the person who nominated them and link their blog in their post.
  • They must include the rules and add the blog award badge as an image.
  • Must add 7 facts about themselves.
  • Nominate 15 people to do the award!

7 Fun / interesting facts about me:

  • I believe that success in life is defined by: Experiences, Pursuing your Passions, Family and Friends, Learning/Improving/Evolving, Food, Travel, Music. PS: money is not part of the equation.
  • My current hobbies: Blogging, Cooking, Photography, Broadway Shows, TV Shows (Series of Unfortunate Events)
  • My favorite websites to peruse when I’m bored are: Quora, Daily Flight Deals, educational and self-improvement sites and articles. I believe social media is a huge time-drainer- I unfortunately use them more than I’d like. /sigh.



  • I am Vietnamese, born in the Philippines, and live in the United States. My parents were refugees from the war and I am forever thankful of the life they gave me. I’m hoping to write a book called The Refugees’ Daughter (or The Refugee’s Child – which title is better??)
  • I have been vegetarian/vegan all my life. My mom is best chef in the world, and I’m still learning.
  • Though I’m not a great writer, I love to write. I organize my thoughts through writing, and would be lost without my journal. Most of my thoughts come out as a page full of hectic, gibberish writing, but it makes me productive. I was freaking out on the bus to NYC when I had forgotten my notebook at home (18 hours by bus away). PS: electronic journalism will never replace my physical notebooks. 

My Nominees:

Shout out to all my nominees! You guys are awesome, let’s have some fun!! ❤


Spread the LOVE 🙂

  1. I agree with you on the definition of success. It’s not always about the money. Some people may have all the money in the world but they aren’t happy because they don’t have enough experiences and adventures in their life. 🙂

    I’m actually from the Philippines and may I know how or why you were born there?

    Congratulations on the award! 💖

    1. Ah,! Kumusta ka? I apologize, my tagalog is very bad, I only remember bits. I love the Philippines, people there are always so fun and open minded! My parents were refugees from the war, fled to the Philippines! I was born in the refugee camp. What part of phil are you from? I’m from Ilo Ilo!


  2. “Though I’m not a great writer…” – er beg to differ lool. I always look forward to your posts, your tone of voice and the personality that comes with it. Only a great writer can convey that with so much ease.
    That said, thank you for the nomination!! I’ll definitely get to it, I have a bit of a backlog on these but soon(ish)!
