11. I love to laugh, even when I should be serious.liebster award laughter is the best medicine

 

 

Here are my answers to the 11 Liebster Award questions:

  1. WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PET PEEVE?

    People who begin by saying, “I’m not one to criticize.” and then continue to do so for the next half hour.

     

  2. WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR NAME ?
    I named my blog after the flavour : Salted Caramel. To begin with, that was my display name too, but now I have added my first name.

     

  3. IF YOU COULD CHANGE YOUR NAME, WHAT WOULD IT BE ?
    It could be “Sugar & Spice” but I don’t want to change it.

     

  4. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE T.V. SHOW AS A KID ?
    The Bionic Woman starring Farah Fawcett you can see her here — she was the female equivalent of The Six Million Dollar Man.

     

  5. DO YOU HAVE ANY WEIRD HABITS ?
    I sure hope I don’t have any habits that could be counted as downright weird.

    Although possessing a good memory for verse,names, facts and figures, I can be absent minded about little everyday things.

    I once put a mug full of tea on a shelf in  my wardrobe and then went all over the house looking for it. I suppose you could call that weird if you wanted to.

     

  6. DO YOU LIKE FALL SCENTS/ TASTES?
    I love them : especially the fragrance of autumn flowers and of burning leaves.

     

  7. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HOLIDAY AND WHY ?
    The winter break is my favourite holiday, because we usually go away somewhere. The change of scene and change of routine is rather nice.

     

  8. DO YOU PREFER WRITING IT DOWN OR TYPING IT UP ?

    I love to type, but I am much faster at writing : so it’s a toss up really.

     

  9. CABLE  OR  NETFLIX ?
    I have cable, a digital box and smart T.V. but would like to get Netflix too. I love to watch T.V. when I am blogging, doing household chores or exercising. it forms a nice backdrop for most activities.

     

  10. IF MONEY DIDN’T MATTER WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH YOUR LIFE ?

    I would go on luxury cruises and see the world on luxury holidays.

     

  11. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF ?
    I often manage to see the funny side of things and sometimes manage to make others see it too. I count this as a great blessing.

    3. No way.
    4. The early seasons of CSI.
    5. I like to do some math operations in my head. So, when I see numbers, e.g. licence plates, I would add or multiply them to each other.

    7. Chinese New Year, because it’s the longest.
    8. I maintain all my notes in digital format so I type. However, I like doing math-related stuff with pen and paper.
    9. None as I prefer reading. If I wanna watch some stuff, I go to Youtube.

      1. Most of the writer bloggers I already know have well over 200 followers, so are there any particular bloggers you follow whose short stories / poems have impressed you & could do with a larger audience?

  2. Congratulations! I love murder mysteries too. Who is your favorite author? My mom introduced me to Mary Higgins Clark and I have been in love with her stories ever since.

    Like

    1. My absolute favourite is Agatha Christie.
      I have read quite a few by Mary Higgins Clark too but she gets a little too sensational at times.
      My tastes run more to old fashioned country house murders.
