A Kreativ Blogger Award!

by Forager on July 25, 2009

Thank you to Betty from The Hungry Girl blog for my first blog award – the Kreativ Blogger award!

The Rules:
1. You must thank the person who has given you the award
2. Copy the logo and place it onto your blog
3. Link to the person who has nominated you for the award
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting
5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate

7. Leave a comment on which of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.

So, here’s 7 things about me (that you may or may not find interesting):

  1. Before I was born my father used to own race horses and was rather obsessed about them. So my older brother was named the phonetic equivalent of “horse trainer” or lin ma(literally the Cantonese words for “train” and “horse”). I was named Trina – because it sounds like “trainer”. I thank my lucky stars I wasn’t named something like Phar Lap.
  2. I officially have 6 “grandmothers”. Yes, that’s right 6. My paternal grandfather was clearly a bit of hustler and had 3 wives and a 1 concubine (my paternal grandmother).
  3. The art of exsanguination – I did this well in a prior life
  4. I cannot resist buying popcorn at the cinemas and then persist in eating them leisurely one-by-one no matter how large the serving.
  5. I’m a strong believer in the old Chinese adage “you can eat anything with its back to the sky”, so I will try almost any food once, maybe twice for good measure.
  6. I am petrified of moths. Especially Bogong moths. I am sure they can smell my pheromones and will hunt me down.
  7. I have strange dreams. Sometimes they’re animated.

The 7 blogs I nominate:

The blogs below are 7 that in some way make me inspired, humbled or just salivate:

  1. A Table For Two
  2. Not Quite Nigella
  3. LemonPi
  4. I Am Obsessed With Food
  5. Salt Shaker
  6. Tangled Noodle
  7. Cha Xiu Bao – The blog that inspired me to become a food blogger

Thanks so much Trina! Hehe very interesting – my grandmother was the Second Wife. She just partied and entertained all the time. Ahh what a nice life…And yes Phar Lap just doesn't have the same name. Would that have become Phillippa or something?

Oh and bleeding to death in a prior life? How do you know this? 😛

Thank you for sharing your first award! I will be properly acknowledging it in an upcoming post.

Your "7 things" are definitely interesting! I think you got the better end of the bargain than your brother when it comes to names. And your G-Dad was a real player!!

But #7 was my 'Me, too!' moment: sometimes, after having pizza (yes, just pizza) I dream in Japanese anime! 8-D

Congrats on the award! Your facts are great, animated dreams? That's kind of awesome. And *shudder* at the exsanguination, how often did you have to do it? I've only ever done it once for a class and that was enough for me.

Hey Stephcookie – Thanks! Yeah, sometimes my dreams are animated, sometimes they appear like a movie – i.e. I know I am watching a zoomed in movie screen. It's hard to explain.. Unfortunately, I became very well acquainted with exsanguination. Did my fair share to last me a lifetime.
