I’ve seen this award for a while, never thought I’d get one because I didn’t know how it works. But recently, I got mine from Shernice Oli of Dreams of a Wanderess thank you for nominating me Shenice! So kind of you! xoxo
It’s a great opportunity to get to know our fellow bloggers through this award. But before anything else . . .
What is a Liebster Award?
The Liebster Award is an online award given to new bloggers by other bloggers. “Liebster” is a German word that means “the dearest”. The Liebster Award is a way for bloggers to recognize fellow bloggers for their work and excellence. The nominees/award winners should then pay it forward by nominating/awarding other bloggers they admire and follow. It’s a way to help newbie/not so newbie to build audience and meet fellow bloggers from around the world (or should I say from around the internet!) heheheh ^^
If you have been nominated for this award, and you CHOOSE to ACCEPT IT, then you have to write a blog about it and follow these steps:
QUESTION: How do I nominate bloggers?
ANSWER: You can nomiante the bloggers you admire or discover them in diffirent platforms, such as FB Pages, twitter, pinterest, bloglovin and more… In my case I did it via facebook group pages of bloggers, just like how I did it.

So, I’m all set to answer her questions below, check it out!
1. What inspired you to make your own blog?
I’m fond of writing diaries…So this blog actually started way back in college (2005/6) but I have done some changes, transferred some files and eventually kicked off in 2010. The reason I blog was at first by simply sharing my experiences online. Keeping it like a diary online. And then, late last year, I have this passion project to start a bit serious about blogging. These days, I still write like journal but more likely of an inspiration/idea/tips about the different stories #InMyHeart.
2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? And why?
HOME! I would still live in the Philippines (Cebu). I’ll keep it simple, it may sound cliche’ but indeed “There is no place like home”
3. What valuable lessons did you get from your travels?
That the world is a big place, that there are so many beautiful and stunning creations God has created for us to appreciate. That culture of different nations are amazing and worth learning. That respect is due to anyone from any place. And most of al, that I as a person is blessed to be able to travel and see these places!
4. What is your favorite travel destination?
There is quiet a lot on my bucket-list, but probably Seoul Korea is on top of that! I used to be an ESL (English as Second Language) Teacher for Koreans so I am always fasciniated with the place & been hooked to some of the Korean dramas! So it’s really my fave destination even if I haven’t been there yet!
5. What are your 5 favorite foods in that country you picked for Question #4?
Never thought I’d be a kimchi fan! At first it was like iwwww! But OMG, this is such a good food. Then followed by Samgyupsal, tuppukki, Samgyatang, Bibimbap and more!!! 🙂
6. What is your greatest travel achievement so far?
Being able to travel is already an achievement for me and for my husband … I am (we are) just #blessed and I am grateful for that.
7. What is your most important travel tip?
> To read about basic info of the places your about to visit.
> Respect their cuture.
> And most especially, live the moment! I know~ we could get so attached to our cameras/mobile phones for photos and updates but, “being there” and just feeling the moment is the most special thing.
8. What was one of the most unusual experiences you’ve encountered?
For now, I guess I have to leave this blank. Nothing so unsual yet. 😀
9. What is the strangest food you’ve ever eaten?
None. Nothing so remarkable or stange — but a I guess the one we ate in a Chinese restaurant in Maldives.
Is this a fried chicken?!?
10. Where is your next destination?
WHERE TO NEXT? We’re planning on either Korea or Italy, while in the Philippines – it would probably be Bataan, or El Nido/Coron Palawan and more of Cebu!
Above picture is a great experience in Cebu, check out my blog about it on CEBU: Canyoneering.
While this one is in Puerto Princesa Palawan.
Now, it’s my turn to pass it on and the new Liebster Award winners are…
