10. My roommate is probably sick of my mood swings but she puts up with me anyways..a perfect angel I’ll say 🙂

11. I am very..and I mean VERY short tempered

Now to answer Allwin’s questions…

1. Who is your favorite blogger? No diplomatic answers. You HAVE to single out one.

I don’t know why you wanted to ask this question cuz it is really hard 😦 Still one blogger I love the most is Mumsy.

2. Recommend me a book

Umm..if I had my way then I’d say Harry Potter as I’m a loyal fan but I guess you must have read it so I’ll say “A Walk Across the Sun” by Corban Addison.

3. Recommend me a movie

Considering that I’m a big fan of gore I can recommend you a slasher movie anytime but I don’t know what you like watching so I’ll recommend “Mother of Mine”  a Finnish-Swedish film directed by Klaus Härö.

4. Which movie/TV character do you most closely associate yourself with?

I don’t know..never really thought about it..

5. When is your birthday?

27th September

6. When was the last time you played the air guitar?

Two days 😀 A favourite way of passing time for me and my brother 🙂

7. What was your childhood nickname?

I didn’t have a nickname but people sometimes called me Appy.

8.  Have you ever searched for your own name on Google?

No….but my friends have 😀

9. If you could punch one person in the face who’s in your life then who would it be?

Many…seriously I have a damn list of people 😉

10. Did you enjoy answering my random questions?

Yup I did 🙂

11. Which was your favorite question?

Eleventh one 😛

My nominations would be….







Here are my set of questions…..

Last but not the least…

A  great reader is…

According to me a great reader is the one who will not just read a specific genera of books. One who will read a variety of books whether fiction or non-fiction without any judgement.

I hope I didn’t bore you with my incessant rantings.. God bless 🙂


The Missy Award..

It was weeks ago that Amber nominated me for this award and I am just too lazy to have accepted it on time 😦 Sorry for the delay Amber..

Soooooo here is the award..

Thank you Amber for believeing in me and considering me worthy enough *hugs*

The Missy Award is presented to those bloggers who support
and advocate for animals either in the blog as a whole or a blog post.
They can be animal lovers, vegetarian, vegan, rescue workers,
doesn’t matter it’s all about the animals.

I will just want to dedicate this award to my dog Zoe…she is like the cutest dog in the whole world and my personal cuddle toy. She lives with my parents and I really miss her here at the hostel 😦 I love you a lot girl ❤ She made me realize that you haven’t seen true love unless you’ve been captured by the love of this furry little creature 🙂 Moving on..

The Rules are:

1- You must post the Award Picture onto your blog–but who doesn’t love putting award pictures on their blog?!!!

2- Link back to http://ivonnemontijo.wordpress.com/

3-And answer two questions.

  • What inspires or motivates you to write?
  • Why do you love animals?

4-Nominate other worthy bloggers or just simply accept the award and do #’s 1-3

Okies so 1 and 2 done now with the questions

  • I find inspiration in the people around me. Every one is unique in his own way and they have so much to teach and share.
  • I dunno…maybe because they are pure. They are above the greed and hate of humankind.

So I guess this is it. Keep happy and stay blessed 🙂
