Real Neat Blogger Award! 🀩 (#3)

I am so.. so..excited . This is the first time that I am getting three times the same award.

So I would like to thank H. R. Phoenix (a lovely author now of Sensation And Stars available in Kindle now), Jeremy Jain Babu (a wonderful blogger who have been posting all kinds of heart touching stories and life events) and my dear sister {chechi} Aswathy Gopalakrishnan (a wonderful blogger and an amazing sister – like figure for me) for Nominating me for this Award…

H. R. Phoenix

Jeremy Jain Babu

Aswathy Gopalakrishnan

Do visit these blogs because believe me… It will be worth it!!! They are absolutely amazing…!!!! Pour in support for Phoenix – whose blog Penable is gaining fans each day not only because of her amazing skill and mind blowing talent in tuning in magic through words,but also because of her lovely and adorable personality, (she is a fabulous poet as well); Jeremy, who is a newbie, but don’t underestimate her by that.. she is pretty talented; and my dear sis Aswathy… Who is so adorable with her son, she is a big supporter of mine. And she is an amazing person! Even though I haven’t met her in person, I bet she is lovelyπŸ’•.Β  I am sure that you will love them for sure!!!

So here are the rules for the REAL NEAT BLOGGER AWARD:

  1. Display the blog award logo on your blog.
  2. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you
  3. Do not forget to link to their blogging website.
  4. Answer all the questions they have given you.
  5. Nominate 7 to 10 bloggers of your choice.
  6. Ask them 7 questions.

Answers to the Questions that Phoenix asked me:

1. What is your favourite cuisine of food?

Confession time : I am a foodie. But I keep control of the food I eat.Β  Over all the cuisines of the world, I am in love with my Indian cuisine… But if you ask me to opt other global cuisines, I’d say.. ummm.. I like Italian and French. Fun fact is that I dislike Chinese cuisine. Don’t know why everyone is shocked when I usually say this.

2. Why did you take up blogging?

Okay this question is something that I encounter almost everyday. Whenever people ask me how bad is the lockdown for me.. I say it’s pretty brilliant, because I am having a lot of fun blogging and hanging around (virtually 😜) with my friends from the WordPress community. Then the next question they ask is this !! “Why Blogging?”

So for all these people, the only answer I give, is that, I do what I am passionate about. I am passionate about writing. And I love socializing.. so this makes the perfect combo.

3. What was the scariest moment of your life?

Okay another confession.. I get scared so easily. People taunt me for this and often take advantage of that. I once got so scared when my brother locked me in our ancestral home (which was then abandoned but we used to play there). He forgot about it and left me there. I came out after my mom came home from work. And my brother cried all day, seeing me cry(He is such a sweet bro).

4. Tell us 10 fun facts about yourself?

β€’ I try hard to not make anyone sad or upset, always try to please others

β€’ I have plenty of methods to relieve from my stress.

β€’ I am not good at drawing or painting, but I still do them.
β€’ I like collecting articles from the daily newspaper.
β€’ I love spending time with my family the most.

β€’ I love Remembering lines from books, movies.. and use them at my brother (he thinks I am a genius because of that😏)

β€’ I am a worst clay artist.. I make random useless and meaningless shapes using clay!
β€’ I am just the opposite of an Introvert. I love socializing. But I also LOVEEEEEEEE to stay alone. It helps me write better things.
β€’ I love collecting info on murder cases. I love watching movies based on solving a mystery. I google the unsolved and solved mystery cases.
β€’ I love to become a good writer and a good orator.

5. Describe your dream house

It will be better to show you what I would like my dream house to look like..

  • What book do you wish you wrote? And why?

I had never wished anything like that. I am happy with other brilliant authors having written their amazing works. I have favourite books ofcourse, and they would be – Undelivered letters, The Girl On The Train, Tell Me your dreams, Me before you, Till the last breath, and all the amazing works of Sudha Murthy.

Now these are the questions that Jeremy and Aswathy asked me( Aswathy asked me one extra question too, the last one among these)

  • When did something start out badly for you but in the end, it was great?

Reading books! I had mentioned earlier that the first book that I ever read was The Beauty And The Beast. Not even those books – which are usually recommended for the beginners. The first few pages did not have anything that could amuse a six year old (me – then). But then there came pictures, illustrations and many other beautiful things. I enjoyed it . I have always enjoyed reading books (reading anything) till date.

  • What food is delicious but a pain to eat?

I totally agree with the answer that Aswathy sis gave. Crab is so difficult to eat, but it is actually worth it. Actually I am not a fan of sea food. I prefer veg normally, but I am not so stringent with that. I am totally flexible! Just preference!

  • What is the most amazing slow motion video you’ve seen?

I recently saw a slow motion video, an eagle chasing a squirrel. The squirrel is running for its life and finally it escapes.

Check it out here!Β 

  • What makes you roll your eyes every time you hear it?

There is an unbelievable event in my house almost everyday, during evenings, when we sit together and talk about the highlights of the day. When ever my parents’ turn comes, we either run or have to close our ears …. They are like Hear ya Hear ya… (… Bragging about how they cracked problems of the day and etc..etc..)
My brother and I always roll our eyes hearing this (hopelessness!)
But they are cute. They love spending time with us. And we do too!

  • What movie quotes do you use on a regular basis?

Actually I use a lot of quotes…. Mostly Harry Potter quotes ( Merlin’s Beard, Follow the spiders, Mischief Managed).
I do use some quotes that my bro always use – Lanister Always Pays it’s debt (Game of thrones).
I also use Malayalam movie dialogues, like Pwoli Sharathe Track Maatu , Shammi hero aada Hero!!!, And dialogues from the famous classic Malayalam movies like Kilukkam , Manichithrathaazu , Chithram, Kireedam… Actually there are a lot of classic Malayalam movies..
I really don’t hope that non-malayalees would catch these dialogues easily. This is dedicated to Aswathy chechi and Jeremy.
They can easily understand what I meant.

  • What was cool when you were young but isn’t cool now?

There are many things that were once cool but not now. For eg, playing with dolls and cars. I love to do it even now… But people around me(except my father) always taunt me for that. They used say “wow. You have dressed up your doll so beautifully..” or “Wow!!! Look how cool it is when you ride a car.. will you take me with you?”,Β  But now they all say” you are not a kid anymore”. And they say this annoying dialogue (Malayalam) Naadodumbol naduve odanam. 🀯

  • What has been a special moment for you in 2020?

Actually 2020 have been pretty devastating for me (both personally and world wide). But apart from these, it was good too. Infact amazing.
2020 was when I joined this WordPress community. So I am equally grateful to this year.
I met many wonderful people this year… Aswathy sis, phoenix dear, Jeremy, Caz, Mary, AR Mohsin Sheikh, Vincent etc.
I did bake many things for the first time this year…Β  But yeah, ignoring all the bad things happened/happening around me, everything is going perfect.

Thank you once again Aswathy Sis, Jeremy and Phoenix for nominating me three times. Didn’t really think I deserve all this support from you guys.. thank you.

Now here are my nominees.


1. Name any 3-5 lines or dialogues from books/movies that you found fascinating
2. What animal would you describe yourself and why?
3. What is your take about Politics?
4. Name three interesting or mind blowing things that had happened in your life.
5. Do you or do you not like to have Expectations?
6. Describe about your favourite author.
7. When you joined WordPress community, what were your thoughts? Did you have any expectations? Were there any specific reason why you chose blogging? (Apart from being passionate about writing)

Dear nominees,
The reason why I chose you is not only because of how talented you are, but also because of how truthful your posts are. You are extremely talented, yes, but on top of all, each of your posts had a wonderful essence of truth, care, love, inspiration.
