The Blogger Tag

I want to thank Pooja for nominating me. She is an amazing blogger who writes amazing, insightful articles. She regularly publishes a great compilation of quotes that are so inspiring! She is an awesome blogger. If you aren’t following her already do check  out her blog and show your support by a like, comment, share or follow πŸ™‚ Here’s a link to her blog:

Question 1: How tall are you?


Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? 

Dear hidden talent,

“I know you are in there somewhere. Do reveal yourself at the latest opportunity!”

Yours truly,

Your human host!

Today I discovered that there are so many pages that “claim” that they can help you discover your hidden talent. But since I obviously couldn’t come up with an answer to this question, you now know how very “effective” those pages are! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve? 

Spam! Sometimes certain posts manage to rake in so much spam comments. I am talking about the actual spam comments like “this article is so what I’ve been looking for..  blah blah blah” and most of these comments are full of hideous spelling and grammar mistakes. I also hate it when WordPress sends some of my favourite bloggers’ comments to the spam folder!

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

People who try to argue with me when I say that I turned vegetarian by choice because I was so sick of the fact that animals were being killed and turned into my food. I don’t try to lecture people into giving up meat and so naturally, I expect people to extend the same courtesy to me! It is my choice and I don’t owe anyone an explanation and/or justification!

Question 5: What’s your favourite song?

I’m a self-confessed musicaholic. I have written so many blog posts about my musicaholic tendencies in detail. If you are interested, please read my following blog posts: (each link will open up in a new tab! So don’t be afraid to click πŸ™‚ )

Question 6: What is your favourite social media website?

Hmmm.. there’s a bit of a debate as to whether blogs can be considered as social media or not… So if it counts as a social media – WordPress because that’s where I spend most of my time.

Question 7: What is your favourite way to spend free time when you’re alone? 

Reading and/or writing.

Question 8: What is your favourite junk food?

Pizza, Chips, Ice Cream, Candy… that’s going to be a huge list. So I’m going to stop right here. πŸ˜€

Question 9: Do you have a pet/pets? If so, what kind and what are their names? 

Not since I lost Rocky. He was 9 (two months shy of his 10th birthday) when he crossed over the rainbow bridge.

Question 10: What is your number one favourite non-fiction and fiction book?

As much as I love reading, I tend to limit myself to fiction books. πŸ˜€

And my favorite fiction book is Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling (for purely sentimental reasons) If you are interested to know more about my attachment to this book series, do read my blog post – The Ultimate Book Tag. (I nearly turned that whole post into a Harry Post tribute!)

Question 11: What is your favourite beauty product/tool?

Lip balm! TBH, I’m a proud member of the “I don’t wear makeup because A) I’m too lazy to bother putting it on and B) I’m too lazy to bother taking it off” community!

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

Seriously I get embarrassed so often I can’t even remember anymore! (I’m with you on this, Pooja!) πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‚

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

Orange juice πŸ˜‚ or maybe even cold coffee.

Question 14: What is your favourite movie? 

One question, way too many answers. (Sidenote: Yet another technical exam is coming up and my brain must be sizzling from all the study sessions because somehow I compared this to an SIMD! Lol. πŸ˜‚)

Question 15: What was your favourite lesson in school and why?

Maths because ever since Trigonometry and Algebra entered my life, I’ve been love in with this subject. Physics because it helps satisfy my curiosity and laid the foundation for my career as an engineer. English because I love reading and writing. And because… how can you not love this amazing language!

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?

Hmm… Switzerland.

Question 17: PC or Mac?

PC (Because you can only talk about the things you’ve experienced!)

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?

This answer doesn’t exist! Because I don’t have a crush who’s aware of my existence/date/boyfriend/spouse. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Question 19: Favourite celebrity?

So many. Same as the answer to Question 14! πŸ˜‚

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want to be friends with?

Hahaha any of the bloggers I follow! They all seem so awesome!

Question 21: Who is your biggest inspiration?

My friends and family.

Question 22: What is your favourite blogs to read?

Question 23: What is your favourite high street shop?

Haha I’m not a high street shop kind of gal… πŸ˜‚

Question 24: Are you in education or do you work?

I’m still studying.

      1. I would like to point out that anyone who reads my blog (and probably yours too) is a connoisseur of all things cultural. I am pleased to know that you are one. [Insert Gentleman Rage Face]

      2. Thallunnath oru mayathil okke venam Sid πŸ˜‚ [he doesn’t know what he’s saying so I’ll let him get away with it πŸ˜‚] Now answer those questions!


    1. I know right! This seemed like less work compared to the award posts that I’ve been procrastinating forever and so I went ahead and did it. But choosing the favourites was so hard. And now when I’m going through my feed, I see names that I’ve missed out. It’s hard to pick out favourites!!!!

      1. Yeah it’s a lot more chilled then awards!
        Yeah choosing favorites is so hard and you always end up forgetting someone! I forgot so many people I wanted to add and I felt bad later that I didn’t add them!

      2. It was the same here. Even now, I keep discovering blogs that I’d forgot to mention in this post. It’s a horrible feeling! I have to keep going back and update this post as soon as I make such such a discovery!

  1. Ohh I had so much reading this. Got to learn more about you πŸ˜„. On A certain question (fav junk food), I didn’t see chocolates. Shweta, pls tell me you do like chocolates 😁

    1. Glad to know that you loved reading this. I love chocolates! Haha the reason why I didn’t include it was that according to my advisor (Google πŸ˜‚) chocolate can’t exactly be considered as junk food because it provides some health benefits! I was conflicted. So eventually I ended up not adding it to the list. But I love chocolates. 😍


  2. Firstly, Thank you, I did not miss seeing my name in there. It is so encouraging to see your work is enjoyed by like-minded people like you (I mean I know it but just seeing it again is even nicer).
    Congratulations on that tag. You ask your talent to show up. Really. I mean what more do you want to show. A one-worded tale. Trust me, I would not be surprised, my favorite short story teller (I know I am getting redundant but facts are facts )

    1. I love reading your blog, my dear. 😊 The pleasure is all mine. Thank you so much. Haha. Sathyam writing had been my hidden talent. Collegeil keriyappol aanu sherikkum discover cheythathu. πŸ˜‚ Iniyum vallathum ondenkil poratte ennu vicharichu. πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Haha! Your belief in my abilities is so encouraging. 😘😊 Thank you so much. I’m so, so happy to hear that! ❀😊

    1. Happy to know that you enjoyed reading this post. Thank you so much, Miriam! Your posts are so full of inspiration and positivity. That list wouldn’t be complete without your blog. ❀️😊

  3. I loved the answer to question 11
    Glad to know we both love Mathematics, but for me it’s chemistry after math and then physics!
    I’m so glad to know you turned vegetarian by choice. Although I was always a vegetarian, again it’s more of a choice than a norm that I ought to follow.

    1. Ohhh I’m not really that fond of chemistry. My engineering background has increased my love for maths and physics. 😁
      Ohhh I gave up meat nearly three years ago. I just felt sick of the thought that some innocent creatures had to give up their life. So I swore to never eat meat. Ever again. And I’ve never regretted that decision. But at times, I receive scornful attitudes… Something along the lines of “You’re a vegetarian by choice! How can you even give up meat”. Some then proceed to tell me how my decision is pointless and won’t change a thing! It’s like they have absolution no regard to my opinions and decisions about my own life!

I somehow thought you wanted to say that😁
