I can’t believe I didn’t take part in last week’s challenge! Oh dear, well today is your lucky day as I will create this post to answer both last week’s and this week’s questions. Hurrah!
What is your favorite comfort snack food?
To be honest, I have so many I can’t really decide but if I must really choose one… it has to be biscuits! At the moment I cam really in to Rich Tea biscuits – yum! I love dunking them in a good cup of tea. #ImSoBritish 🙂
If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single store but could remove nothing, which store would you pick? (except food or beverage)
It would have to be a home store. I would love to say Ikea like Cee did but I’ve never been in an Ikea store before (shock horror!) – I would stay in B&Q or in Dreams bed store. I love B&Q and love to pretend play in the bathroom and kitchen area and at Dreams I love the beds. I could easily sleep in there all weekend on the biggest and comfiest bed they have.
What was the largest city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most?
I can’t really tell what’s the largest city so I must google it first…. [googling away]… okay, so London is the largest city I’ve been to (1572km sq) but I’m not going to count it as I live there so I will count Ha Long Bay in Vietnam which follows very closely in second place at 1553km sq. I didn’t even know my parent’s hometown was that expansive! Although, the majority of this area mass is made up of limestone islets (small islands with little/no inhabitants). The one thing I remember vividly about Ha Long Bay is the beauty bay itself. Those islets are a dream to look at from a distance and when you get a chance to get on the little fishing boat to take you out there to see them up close… it’s simply breath-taking. I wish I still had some photos that I could scan to show you but just know that all of the photos you see of “The Descending Dragon Bay” (literal translation for the city’s name) is really how it looks in real life. Here are some wonderful photos I found online:
Finish this sentence: It has recently come to my attention that ….
…life can really give you lemons. When you’re young you are so naive and then when reality hits you, it can really knock you back if you’re not strong enough to cope. Family should be the most valuable things in your life, with friends coming in at a close second and materialistic possessions should be last on the list – not the other way round!
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An artist. Then an archaeologist. Then a teacher. Then a singer/actress. Then a fashion designer. I used to play teachers with my siblings ALL THE TIME. It was a lot of fun! I still love the arts and fashion and would love to be an illustration artist. Mum and dad crushed all my hopes and dreams of pursuing the career when they drummed into me that as an artist, I wouldn’t be able to make a decent living from my work until I died. Sad times.
What was your favorite food as a child? Do you eat it now?
My favourite food as a child was the vietnamese bean dessert and yes I still eat it now! That is how much I love it. The red bean is my favourite followed closely by the mung bean.
If you were invisible, where would you go?
Oooh a tough one. I am not too sure… I think I would go to top secret places like MI5 or Area 51 to see what they get up to.
Would you rather forget everyone else’s name all the time or have have everyone for your name all the time?
I don’t mind to be honest – I do tend to forget names really easily nowadays as I remember the person usually by their voice and their face. Once I see or hear the person, usually their name comes back to me. If I do forget, I’m never afraid to ask and don’t think people should feel embarrassed or rude if they do forget because there’s really more to a person than their name. (Even though remembering it really does help!)
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m really grateful for the lovely weather we have had last week. On Saturday, LO and I went to Camden Beach at The Roundhouse in Chalk Farm. It was a lovely day out for us but if you decide to visit as well, make sure you get there when it’s just opened to get a deckchair and umbrella as it gets filled up super quick! Here’s a photo (or two) of our Saturday shenanigans… enjoy!
I’m really looking forward to the end of this week as it’s my friends birthday and it’s the day of my Race for Life Muddy Run at London’s Finsbury Park! I am sooo not ready for it, not been training either so not too sure what time I will finish but I will definitely not give up and complete it to the end.
I will post up the race (July 25th) soon so make sure you check back to check it out! 🙂
