Third Blog Award

Can you believe that? I can't! I just got another blog award from another mama blogger MomInRome.  Here ya go:

I am more than thrilled and grateful! The moment I read MomInRome's comment on one of my entries, I yelled the news to hubby who was equally happy :-D.

Ok, so on to the meat of this award...  as any other award, it comes with a very nice and pleasant baggage :)  List 7 things about me and then pass it on to 15 other bloggers!... Whew, 15... it'll be interesting so let's start off.

7 things about Spanish Pinay
  • Here in Spain rabbit (not the kind that people normally have as pets at home) is a common food and I just can't myself eat it just yet.  Although as I've mentioned, it is not the kind of rabbit that we are used to having as a pet at home, I still can't shake it off from my head that it could be the poor rabbit I so wanted to have as a pet when I was young.
  • I learned to ride a bike on my own (when I was about 9 yrs old) borrowing someone else's bike without brakes!
  • When I was young, I used to jump from my room's window to the neighbor's window and then get out through their door to escape nap time. 
  • I hate repeating myself.  When someone didn't understand what I was saying or was not paying attention and would ask me to repeat what I just said, it drives me batty! - not the best quality, I know.
  • I feared baking.  Not anymore. I was so intimidated by the fact that one has to follow the recipe down to the last comma that I never tried it until the time for my Little Spanish Pinay's first birthday came and I couldn't find any pastry house around our area that will make a fondant cake for LSP.  So I dared make one myself.  Talk about conquering fear :)
my obra maestra

  • When I was young (really young) I wanted to be a manicurist/pedicurist... then I also wanted to become a construction worker as mixing cement (and the sound that it makes) fascinated me.
  • In general, I am a dare-devil when it comes to food. I've tried eating fried insects when I was Thailand! First and never again though!

Now, to pass this on to 15 more bloggers....
