I sense that my “happy moments” category is performing some magic.

I’ve been nominated for the Beautiful Blogger Award by the gorgeous

Her blog is unique and full of character. She re-creates beautiful vegan recipes that inspires me every time. I nominated a few other bloggers, who also have beautiful blogs I love.

Beautiful Blogger Award Rules:

The idea behind the Beautiful Blogger Award is to recognize some of the bloggers we follow for their hard work and inspiration.

1. Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo and place it in your post.
2. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
3. Tell 7 things about yourself.
4. Nominate 7 other bloggers for their own Beautiful Blogger Award, and comment on their blogs to let them know.

7 Things About Myself

1. I’m in love with planting and adding basil to most of my dishes.

2. I love novels by Nicky Pellegrino and Santa Montefiore.

3. Slow run helps me to release stress from a hard day’s work.

4. I like to daydream for ideas.

5. I’ve been in the TV industry for 17 years.

6. Italian dinner, wine and chips are my favorites.

7. I prefer small gatherings.

The Beautiful Bloggers:


This is a happy moment!

Having participated in many program promotions competitions in my TV career, I was naïve to think that a blog award nomination works the same way.

When I was nominated for Reality Blog Award on 31 October 2012 by an amazing lady Anto who owns an impressive blog , I actually waited for some kind of official notification to acknowledge the recognition which never came. I laugh out loud when I realized it doesn’t work this way.  Anto took great effort to write most of her post in three languages and her food recipes are a big inspiration for me.

For this award, I need to answer the following questions.

1. If you could change one thing, what would you change? Change Singapore weather into one that has four seasons.

2. If you could repeat an age, what would it be? The final year of my secondary school days.

3. What one thing really scares you? Gambling.

4. What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you’ll be able to complete it? Live in a nice countryside. There is no countryside in Singapore…

5. If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be? Any chef who is cooking for the poor.

I am not sure how many blogs should I nominate for this award but here are the ones I love.


There are not many happy moments in my life and that makes them too precious to be forgotten. Hence I decided to start a new category “happy moments” to collect them from now on and share my joy.

Today is Deepavali and it happens to be my first post for this category.

One of the best decisions I have made over the past two years is to move from my old apartment to this new home surrounded by lovely neighbors and nice scenery. Since I shifted in, Deepavali has been a happy moment each year when my Indian neighbor Mr. Raju will bring over mouthwatering lunch to celebrate the occasion. 

Happy Deepavali!
