I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award!

I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award!

Many of you have heard or maybe even have been nominated and received the Liebster Award. I have been nomiated before by Linda Living in China, but due to study pressures I couldn’t find the time to accept the nomination and take part.


This time, however, I have accepted and am very honored to answer questions and forward the nomination to other wonderful blogs.



I have been nominated for the Liebster Award thanks to Timo from My Crazy Chinese Family. This honor for bloggers with less than 200 followers promotes the discovery of newer members of the blogosphere.

In his blog http://crazychinesefamily.com/ you can find stories about his life with his Chinese wife and lessons learned about being part of a Chinese family.

Here are the “rules” (copied from My Crazy Chinese Family’s post):

  • Thank the person who nominated you for a Liebster Award and link their blog to your post.
  • Answer the 11 questions they’ve asked you.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers who have 200 followers or fewer for the award.
  • Ask 11 questions to your nominees.
  • Let your nominees know you nominated them once you’ve posted about your Liebster Award.
  • Add the Liebster Award badge to your blog!


Here are my answers to My Crazy Chinese Family’s questions:

  1. What annoys you the most?

Honestly, what annoys me the most really depends on my mood. Something that might annoy me today, will not bother me tomorrow.

Eh I have no idea. I don’t really care. I am not very technically versed hah

My favorite sport was always kungfu. I still love it a lot, because it is just part of my life. But recently I would really love to learn classical Chinese dance and ballet.

Electric motorbike haha No, honestly, during summer a bike is fine, but during the Chinese winter I would prefer the car.
