Tag : Get to Know Your Blog

i love being tagged. answering tag questions is no doubt, one of the easiest ways to write a blogpost - you don't have to crack your head for a topic to write about, you're just answering questions and you have fun coming up with answers!

some people might find it quite taxing, answering all those intrusive questions - but i enjoy every minute of it!

thanks aisha for the tag!

ok, first put this up before you answer the questions.

1. Where are you?
dubai. oh, you mean, where i am exactly? on my bed.

2. What do you do?
i've been a lecturer, a mag editor, and a mentor at a kids' development center. now i'm trying to stay sane as a fulltime home-maker to my husband and 3 boys.

3. What is your blog name and why?
it's 'how do i spell the word' because i'm a language major and i love to write, so that phrase just came out.

4. When did you start blogging?
circa october 2008, i quit my job, moved to dubai, and i was pregnant with my 2nd boy - so new place, new baby, new life - what better time to blog all about it!

5. Give the link when you were the happiest to blog?
i'm generally a happy person with the occasional bout of raging temper that drove me to the brink of insanity (what with living together with four boys!) - so about 90% of my blog content is hoppity happy - especially when i go makan, write about my honey, my kids and my sisters.

owh, ok. nak sangat baca posting gembira - i guess it's when i had kahfi and kazim!

6. Give the link when you were the saddest to blog?
you would think it's all the posts about my mak, right? but surprisingly not. contrary to what you might believe, i LOVE writing about my mak. there were tears, no doubt, but i wasn't sad when i blog about her. i was keeping her memory alive!

so i guess the saddest i've been when i blog was about the last day before azi and syida left dubai after spending a fun one month here. sob! sob!

7. Give the link when you were the angriest to blog?
i seldom write angry posts. i had a most terrible experience on the emirates airline on the way back kl-dubai last year, but i didn't even write about that. malas nak bising-bising dalam blog.

and also, i DON'T write about the current political situation. however, during the perebutan kuasa in perak, i was angry. i wasn't really taking sides, but i was angry at the whole thing. especially since it involved my beloved state, where i was born and raised.

so wanna read an angry me, read my posts on the perak drama here and here. you have been warned.

8. Give the link when you were most in love?
like aisha, it's obviously all posts under the tag 'love' - duuh! - but this one takes the cake. a little romantic note written in japanese that sealed the deal - i was his forever!

do NOT click here if you're this close to throwing up! haha.

9. Give the link of a post that turns out to be very meaningful to you?
on the eve of the new year of 2004, i lost my best friend, my good listener, my walking dictionary - my mak. this post is my small dedication to this wonderful person who played a huge part in my life. i miss her everyday.

truly it's the most meaningful post of all. click here to read.

10. Tag some friends to know about their answer?
kak arin, fida, fairus, ica, anneeza & hidayah - time to korek-korek the old posts! i wanna know!

* * *

i'm a total blog-addict, especially to mine. and yes, i do browse through my old posts, just to reminisce, and to just - read. so this tag gives me a reason to do that again! hope it does the same for you!

and since i was already rumaging through old posts, here's one of my many favorites of all time since the first day i blogged - click here for khaleef and kahfi's trip to a kampung barber - with black and white photographs, and old skool malay writing. enjoy.
