Here are my answers to her questions

1. What embarrasses you the most and/or what’s been your most embarrassing moment?

To be honest, I’m very good at embarrassing myself. Let me just think of the most embarassing one… On top of my head, I remember that one day, when our family had shifted to a new place and I started to go to a new school. I was going to school in a public bus and the route was changed due to road block. I had to get down in an another stop and I didn’t know the way. Then, I saw a boy who was in our school uniform. He was elder to me. So, I started following him to reach to school. On the half way, he turned around and smiled at me. I think that he thought I was following him for some other reason. As, I was too shy to ask him the way, I continued to follow him. When, I reached school gate a little behind him, I had lots of eyes on me.

2. Who do you look up to the most, and what qualities do you love about that person?

It’s my father. He has been my role model in my life and will be in future too. He is a person with resilience and inner strength. I have seen him going through the deepest pits without  giving up on himself or his family. He is a person that we can always rely on and can share our secrets too.

3. What would be your perfect day? Plan it out from waking up to bedtime.

My perfect day would be like starting with a cup of tea on my bedside then followed by an half hour walk, spending time with my child, reading a book, eating out and a family movie time.

4. How do you like to be comforted when you’re sad or upset?

Sometimes, when I get really sad and I don’t want to talk about it then just sitting beside me and holding my hands makes me feel better. Some other times, I would really love to have a cup of coffee and a chat with my friends. Depends on what kind of matter I’m dealing with, I suppose.

5.What’s your favorite thing you own and why?

My favorite thing that I own is my dignity and integrity. Without it, I will be shattered. I don’t believe in materialistic things.

    1. My first name is Joyce. Yes, I’m a morning tea person and when I go out, I prefer coffee than tea. It’s just because, I believe that cafe is for coffee and not for tea. It was my pleasure to nominate you.
