Hello, dear friends! I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that The Journey & Destination has been nominated for the Liebster Award by a fellow food blogger, @ffoodssakee! I will love to express a huge thank you for nominating the blog. It’s truly an honor. Ffoodssakee’s blog, For Food’s Sake Eat!, features awesome food in Uganda.
The Liebster Award is an awesome initiative whereby bloggers support fellow bloggers. The following are the criteria to accept the nomination:
- Thank the person who nominated you, and share a link of their blog on your blog
- Answer the 5 questions given to you by your nominator
- Write a small post about what motivates you in life
- Nominate other blogs
- Create 5 questions for your nominees
- List the rules in your post
- Inform the people/blogs you’ve nominated
And now, presenting the first official Q&A in The Journey & Destination!
1. What DO you prefer, the Journey or the destination?
Journey! Be it a review, experiment or traveling, my excitement peaks when I’m on the journey (especially after planning everything) It adds elements of intrigue and surprise too as you’ll never know what you may find along the journey. Some of my funniest and fondest memories are from journeys.
2. What is your favourite thing to cook?
Right now, it’s ‘jazzed-up’ veggie scrambled eggs. Simple, healthy and wholesome – which is my current motto in the kitchen. My favorite thing to cook changes every now and then, though!
3. What is your favourite thing to eat?
Chocolate – I love milk chocolate!
4. Veggie or Meat?
Meat! With elements of veggies on the side.
5. Do you like eating with your bare hands?
It depends on what I’m eating – if it’s sandwiches and wraps, I’d much rather eat with my hands. Otherwise, I prefer using cutlery.
6. What do you do when you cook something and it gets burned?
I try to salvage it by scraping the burnt parts off. If it’s beyond salvageable, it goes straight into the bin. As much as I love char-grilled/barbecued/’caramelized’ food, burnt food is way out of my taste bud’s comfort zone!
What Motivates Me In Life
That’s a deep topic! Several factors motivate me every day.
Motivation, for me, primarily stems from seeing potential in something and working towards making it grow, and hopefully thrive (be it work, studying, a project or a post). Doing so results in exploring new avenues and places in this big wide world. Who knows what you’ll find when you dive into different adventures! That’s the beauty of life.
People motivate me too. Unconditional love and encouragement from family members and friends have a massive part to play in inspiring and motivating me to pursue anything. From taking leaps of faith to conquering smaller steps (like giving ginger and cinnamon a chance), being there for one another is key in life.
Having faith is another factor that I most definitely need to include. Faith to enter something new, faith to see something through. It helps me to stay motivated as well. Faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains.
