Let’s get this started with the 11 questions from Harriet:
What is your top beauty product? Eyeliner! I have this obsession over eyeliner because of Ga-in’s eye make-up. Besides her singing and her bordering-4D personality, I like her eye make-up a lot which is mostly just eyeliner because she’s a monolid. I am honestly not a monolid but I still use relatively thick eyeliner to accentuate my eyes.
Do you prefer books or movies? I have no strong preference for either. There are some books that are better off without a movie adaptation and there are those books that have brilliant beyond brilliant adaptations. I do my best to enjoy both. My usual pattern is to watch the movie and then read the book for fewer moments of disappointment. ;A;
What is your favourite food? I do have a thing for Chinese food. I don’t get tired of eating dimsum. :D
What is your definition of happiness? For me, happiness is finding contentment at the current state of one’s life. It’s the point when everything is just right — like there’s nothing more in life that could make you feel happier.
Why did you start blogging? At first, I did not want to start blogging because I originally planned to lose weight before starting a fashion blog but then, I realized that I don’t want a fashion blog alone. I want to be able to express myself and my interests — fashion, food, books, movies, and more. So, I started anjwrites regardless of weight loss. This is my avenue where I can practice to express myself freely to others — to everyone who has been with me in the past few months and to people that I will meet in the future. :)
Who or what are your biggest inspirations? Ah, for writing, there’s Lang Leav, JK Rowling, and Jane Austen. For blogging about what they love the most (which are things I also love), there’s Kaila from Rainbowholic and Tricia of Tricia Will Go Places.
What is your ideal job? I want to be a style/trend expert. Someone who knows what will be up next in the fashion world. I want to be able to give out well-studied opinions on clothes and not just “oh, that is pretty”. I want to be able to dish out and have an influence on styles. I’d have a VIP seat on every fashion show and would give commentary on the collections. I’d help RTW fashion companies develop their own collections too. Other than this, I also want to write fictional prose and poetry. So much to do, so little time! D:
What is your favourite thing to do to pass the time? Reading. This used to be going around Tumblr but then again, because of work, I don’t go to Tumblr a lot these days. I read at one point during the 2-hour commute to work and the 2.5 – 3 hour commute home. Reading makes queuing up not a problem. ;w;
Where is your favourite place to visit? The bookstore. Any bookstore for that matter. I love being surrounded by books. I used to stay in the library back in college and wait for my dad to pick me up in a bookstore. I always de-stress in a bookstore, looking for a new adventure to get myself into.
What video game would you recommend? Admittedly, I don’t play much video games. I wanted to but my parents raised me on educational games like Jumpstart and Cluefinders… and eventually Carmen San Diego. I never went through Mario and Pokemon and other games. I did have a Nintendo DS phase and all I played there was Harry Potter. =3=
Where would you like to be in 5 years time? In five years, I would be 28. Hopefully, I’m already someone important in the fashion scene that I’d even get invited to fashion shows outside the country! This blog would be my avenue for my commentaries and hopefully, lead to a fashion side blog where I’d be able to give out more commentaries. I would be financially stable. I would’ve done most of the things off my bucket list such as cosplay and learn music. By then, I suppose I’d be in a relatively serious relationship wherein the other person and I are considering marriage. :P

Now, for the 11 blogs to be tagged with this award. Honestly speaking, I do not know how to check how many followers does a blog have (unless it shows on the page itself) so… hmmm, how to go about this… OTL
Just to get the posts rolling (as I am still delayed for a week), I’ll post the 11 featured blogs for this award sometime soon on a separate post~ Suspense, yes? OTL
