Facts About Me

  1. I am a fried chicken enthusiast and I can eat fried chicken for the rest of my life.
  2. I won a spelling bee when I was in the first grade, but I can never forget my only mistake. I spelled friend as freind.
  3. I love musicals! My few favorites are Miss Saigon, Dear Evan Hansen, The Phantom Of The Opera (especially the 25th anniversary cast), and Hamilton.

Morr’s Questions

1. What is a book you’ve had on your shelf/kindle the longest but still haven’t read? I have tons of books that I’ve had for years now but still have not read. Some of them are 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami, Gabriel’s Inferno by Syliva Reynard, and Miss Just Listen by Sarah Dessen.

2. How do you battle reading slumps?
I usually encounter reading slumps when I force myself to read certain genres when I am not in the mood. To beat this, I often reach for old favorites or an interesting audiobook to push me along.

3. What’s your favorite recipe that you like to make, or you like someone to make for you?Aside from my all time favorite fried chicken, close friends and family rave over the Filipino food that I can cook. My specialties are adobo, caldereta, and lumpiang shanghai.

For reference, here are some photos borrowed from Google:

4. Hardcover, paperback, or e-book?

Ever since my eyesight has worsened, I tend to prefer e-books now. I like taking advantage of being able to adjust the font size and the brightness of the screen as I see fit. It also makes it easier to read before sleeping. But, I still read paperbacks every once in a while.

5. If you could only read one genre (fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary, historical, non-fiction, etc) for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

Given the chance to only stick to one genre for the fest of my life, I will be sticking with romance. Ever since I was a teen, I have been a sucker for romances. Blame it to the hopeless romantic in me, I cannot resist reading about love. May it be for young adults, new adult, and adults, I am sure I will never run out of beautiful stories to discover.

  1. yna!! i’m so late but thanks for the nomination ❤
    i’m a huge fan of fried chicken too, and i’d 100% join you on your quest to eat fried chicken for the rest of your life. i’ve also always wanted to watch dear evan hansen, but i’ve never been to broadway and the show has never come to where i live 😦 i heard from my friend that it’s really good though, and you got me even more excited to see the musical someday! + the filippino dishes all look so good, especially the pork caldereta 😍
