I haven't received an award in such a long time (has no idea) and BOOM, I've been awarded by two people for the same award. So, its the Liebster award or something.

It means dearest. Hmmm. That is cute. Of course, here are the terms of service that comes with the award:

The rules:
1. Give 10 random facts about myself.
2. Answer the questions given to me by my wonderful nominators.
3. Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers.
4. Write 11 questions for them to answer.

Oh god, 10 random facts about myself.

Here we go.

1. I'm in love with Twix. You know, the chocolate. We don't have them here but I bought some at the Jeddah airport and well, now I regret not stuffing myself with bars of Twix from the supermarket near the hotel I stayed at in Mecca. The chocolates were cheap =.=

2. I recently made an Instagram. Expect pictures of my cat, my books and food. Username: hanisgorgeous

3. I can't watch romance movies for the reason that I believe it will only give people false hope. I'll make a face whenever anyone suggest a rom-com. In fact, the only one I can tolerate is Ten Things I Hate About You (tears up every single time) and god, 500 Days of Summer? I hated Summer right away.

4. I get pissed off when I see trash published and become bestsellers *coughscoughsTwilightand50Shadescoughscoughs* because come on, there are plenty of other, more deserving books to be recognised and become bestsellers. Not to mention, my manuscript.

5. Talking about bestsellers, I avoid them until the whole rage about them has died down. Either I read them when the word-of-mouth are whispers or after the enthusiasm has died.

6. Everytime I look at my books, I imagine getting a nice big bookcase and then buying more.

7. I hate throwing things away. Just few days ago I cleared away some books/reports from my high school days. And the bundle of scrap paper and notes from my Diploma days.

8. I don't have a type. But if you ask what kind of a guy I find physically attractive, I would tell you Caucasian or Indian/Pakistani + Caucasian or Indian/Pakistani guys who were brought up in the western part of the world. I know, that last one is odd but there is just something about the upbringing that makes them oh so attractive.

9. Koala bears? I have no idea why people think they're cute.

10. I have the urge to quote lyrics into conversation.

Okay, time to answer those questions given by my nominators, such wonderful people.

First up is AZ:

1) The moment you regret the most

Hmm. I can't think of one. Maybe that moment I started having midnight snacks that were more like a second dinner. HAHAHAHAHA. 

Okay, be serious Hanis.

Hmmm. I seriously can't think of one that qualifies as "the most" . Oh wait, what about the time I gave that letter to this one crush of mine who let his friends read it and made fun of me on Myspace? God. I'm gonna nominate the moments I get certain crushes.

2) The moment you value the most

I must be a bad person as I can't think of an answer for this one. The moment I got my S3. HAHAHAHA.

Fine. Seriously, I can't think.

3) If your life was about to be turned into a film, who would you want to potray you?

That girl from Suits. The sexy, caramel skinned one who's having a thingie with Mike. Or Maya Karin. Can the guy from I Am Number Four play my husband?

4) Which song describes your life

There is no song that do that. Other than If Only For One Night or Sweet Dreams are Made of This.

5) Your biggest fear

Hmm. Being rejected. Or falling from a high place with no chance of being saved.

6) What is your most embarrasing habit

Snoring. I do snore.

7) What is your favourite quote

If you're going through hell, keep on going- Winston Churchill

8) If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your life what would it be

Fish and chips, with a lemon wedge on the side with tartar sauce. Does that count as one thing? Or just a Chicken Slices Sub from Subway.

9) Your dream job?

A food and travel show host.

10) Which book made you cry?

Plenty but the one on my mind now is The Time Traveller's Wife.

11) Which film made you cry?

Last one, that I remember was Despicable Me. I cry at cartoons every single time.

Whew, that was hard. Now, its time for Laila:

1. A book that made you [want to?] throw it across the room?

This Malay novel that my brother has to read for school. God, it reminded me of why I hate most Malay novels where the female characters are weak and idiotic. I know there are some novels which aren't like that, but that is the minority. I ended up going "I hate the daughter, I hate the mother, I hate the father. I only like nothing of this." while vowing to write to the author a hate letter. I didn't.

2. What was the last lie you told? (assuming you have lied :P )

Last one I remember telling was :

"I only had two currypuff."

I had 3 currypuffs and few other things. With a cup of tea. A small Kit Kat and a mini bag of Nips.

3. How long is your thumb?

Half of the height of my S3.

4. What did you eat for breakfast four days ago?

Scrambled egg.

5. Have you ever done something violent? If so, what didja do?   

Other than fighting my brother? Or shooting an M17? Nope.

6. What's under your bed?

Luggages. A vaccumm cleaner.

7. What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear 'kangaroo'?

Tigger. Cause he's like Roo's role model.

8. What happens to Pinocchio when he says 'I'm lying'?

Its like dividing something by 0. World ends. Or the universe gets jumbled up and we wake up in a whole other universe.

9. Can you stand on your head without leaning against anything?

Hmmmm. No. Hahaha

10. When was the last time you climbed a tree?

I have a fear of ants. Well, I hate how they crawl on my skin. Where do ants like to hang out? Trees. So, never.

11. When someone asks you to tell them about yourself, what do you say?

In my mind:

"I'm Hanis. Hanis means awesome and gorgeous. TRUTH."

In reality:

"Erm .. what do you wanna know?"

And now, since everyone I can possibly nominate has been nominated, I'm gonna ignore the 3rd and 4th rule and instead, give you this picture of me, which shows me attempting a cute Korean style expression.

That's a lot of stuff to process but congratulations on getting not one, but two of those awards :D I tend to avoid best sellers myself, I think the main reason I read Hunger Games was to see the comparison between it and Battle Royale. Then I enjoyed the books and kept reading them.

OHMY. We are exactly the same for the last question you answered, which is why I asked it. I need a new answer ^_^

Now, running commentary:

#1: I just watched 10 Things I Hate About You :D I LURVED IT. 'Twas so cute and funny and amazing.

#2: 4 & 6? My thoughts exactly ^^

#3: Okay, 7 as well.

#4: I think it's healthy not to have a type. Going with the whole 'romance movies set you up with false hope', I feel like having a type sets you up with unrealistic expectations. I mean, a vague pointer here and there - I like funny, or smart - okay. But there are people who have it all worked out, to exactly how long one's nose must be, and the exact IQ he must have... and I pity them o.o

#5: Koalas have fluffy ears O_O And cute little buttony noses.

& okay, I love all your answers to all the questions :P
