i've been tagged by chewy from elephantislove. chewy and i go way back to junior college in singapore! ever since, we've not been in the same country since forever! she most recently moved to usa and has a cute little etsy store. she loves crafts, gardening and has a pet dragon.. (i kid you not!!) she is cute as a button and her smile lights up the room!!

:: the tagged rules are as follows:

1. post these rules.
2. you must post 11 random things yourself.
3. answer the ques­tions the tag­ger set for you in their post.
4. cre­ate 11 new ques­tions for the peo­ple you tag to answer.
5. go to their blog and tell them that you've tagged them.

:: the 11 questions from elephantislove:

one - is there a significance behind your name?
i wrote about it here but in short my name is a little sparkley white flower.

two - your favorite color / color combination? 
my longtime love - pink. i love it with greens, blues, black, grey and white.

three - favorite thing you do to de-stress?
i snuggle with my mister. if he's at work, then muu is the next best thing! sometimes i craft or scrub the house clean. but sometimes that's a source of stress too. life's complicated like that.

four - what is your motto in life?

five - what is your next upcoming (exciting) project?

six - describe your fashion style?
i love wearing twirly soft tutus.

seven - coffee or tea?
tea, most definitely. i have an ever-growing collection of fancy teas in my pantry! my current favorite is peach melba that i received from my mother in law. it makes me think of the warm and toasty christmas we spent in melbourne a few years ago. such a lovely memory..

eight - all time favorite movie?
notebook. it reminds me of a good kind of love.

nine - what music do you listen to?
i love jazz, classical, pop, anything you can sing or dance to 
and i love it when the mister plays on the guitar.

ten - do you prefer living in a house or an apartment?
apartment. less to clean.

eleven - what is your dream vacation?
one with all my favorite people. its really the company not the place. this picture was taken on our roadtrip to yarra valley (?) after our wedding with our friends. one of the shortest and easiest trip ever. we rolled up in our people-mover, poked our noses at the native animals, had icecream float on milk and played dirty scrabble. best vacation ever.
