So this lovely sister: Fall musings nominated me for the one lovely blog award. How lovely! πŸ˜πŸ˜‚  I thought I’d finally do it ahaa. 

Do check out her blog of her daily reflections which will always give you food for thought! 

So the rules are: 

  • Mention and thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog.
  • Add the One Lovely Blog Award to your post.
  • Share seven facts about yourself.
  • Nominate as many people as you  can (maximum 15).
  • Include this set of rules.
  • Inform your nominees.

        Seven facts 

        1.) My name could have been Malaikah as opposed to Aaliyah. I was that baby that was literally called “baby” all the way until the last day when names have to be registered because my family couldn’t decide πŸ˜‚ They put my name and Malaikah in a hat and everyone present had to pick one out. My name came out quite a few times and my grandfather had an “I told you so” moment because he suggested it from the beginning and wanted that name for me hahaa! 

         2.) I look a lot younger than my age which means I’m rarely taken seriously πŸ˜‘ and the adult world thinks I’m still a child. Im short and petite too which doesn’t help that. #foreveryoung 

         3.) I couldn’t speak a word of English when I was young even though the only language I am currently fluent in is English. I started nursery and was getting frustrated that I couldn’t communicate with everyone and I erm…well… maybe…swore at the teacher when she was trying to get me to put my clothes on after I stripped in protest against doing whatever she told me to do. She later asked my mother what it meant and my mother with a shocked face told her ” it means nice. She likes you!”. The teacher wasn’t convinced…

         4.) My favourite animal is pandas. They are so chilled out it’s impossible for me not to like them. I want a pet panda…I most likely will not get a pet panda πŸ˜’

         5.) I’m an introvert but I’m not shy. A lot of people confuse the two . I come across as a quiet person (which I am) but when I speak others quickly realise I am confident and not shy and then they are confused even further. Apparently an Introvert is a quiet person which automatically means they are shy and socially awkward. I’m quiet and a little socially awkward but I’m most definitely not shy πŸ˜‚

         6.) I’m claustrophobic.  But for me it seems to be a whole different level to just the fear of confined spaces because I don’t like anyone in close proximity to me either. Even when out walking, I hate it when I have to walk through people. My personal space zone is a little bigger than normal…

         7.)  I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but I love anything and everything savoury!

        1. Aww lovely to get to know more about you! And you know what, I’ve always loved the name Aaliyah, dunno why but whenever I had to create a username (and I’m not creative in it at all) I just used that name lool πŸ˜‚ I don’t like animals really (do not judge me…I’m just a lil scared and…meh), but pandas are cute 🐼 especially when they sleep.

          I guess being an introvert differs for each person, I mean I don’t think being shy means that you’re not confident, neither when you don’t speak much and get easily comfortable around new people. You can still be shy (and craazy in front of fam and close friends), but confident at the same time!
