The Sunshine Award


Thank you TPG for nominating me for this award. It’s only the second time this blog has been nominated for anything, I think.

The rules for the Sunshine Award are:

  1. Post the sunshine award logo;
  2. Accept the nomination and link back to the nominator;
  3. Answer the questions;
  4. Nominate ten other blogs (or sites) and inform them of the award.

sunshine-awardFavourite color: The absence of color, i.e. black.

Favourite animal: None. But I love all animals. πŸ˜‰

Favourite number: 7. I was born in July. But the number itself has been special for centuries. It is the sum of the sides of a triangle and a square, the perfect geometrical shapes; God is said to have created the world in seven “days”; the seven deadly sins; Seven Seas; the baby Buddha’s seven steps; etc.

Favourite non-alcoholic beverage: Coffee!

Favourite alcoholic beverage: Belgian beer. Belgisch bier. BiΓ¨re Belge. What else? πŸ˜€

Facebook or Twitter: Twitter. I don’t use Facebook anymore because I don’t like the way they sell private information to third parties.

Passions: Reading, writing, playing the piano, music in general, and, hopefully, contributing to a better world.

Giving or receiving gifts: Neither. I hate shopping for gifts; it’s one of the reasons Christmas and birthdays don’t mean as much to me as they do to most people. Unless “gifts”  means “charity”, in which case I prefer giving.

Favourite city: In Europe, it’s got to be Stockholm. Elsewhere, any city near the beaches of Lombok will do.
