The Versatile Blogger Award

Thanks Adrine for having me in mind. This will be my first time doing a tag.  Really appreciate it. Muaks..:P

Rules : To accept this award you must:

1. List 7 random things about yourself
2. Share the award with up to 15 other bloggers
3. Link to each of the recipients and let them know they've won via comments on their blogs
4. Thank and bring the love back to the person you won the award from by linking back to them.

1.  I am 5'6" tall and one of the tallest among my friends.  I used to slouch until I met my then boyfriend (now hubby) and he would constantly remind me and correct my posture.  The slouching started way back in my primary and secondary school years when I was teased by classmates about my height and I thought slouching would make myself looked a little bit shorter then. How silly!

2.  I like attires that are comfortable and easy to move about.   I dislike wearing something that looks gorgeous but a physical torture to myself.  I love wearing flats now that I am a SAHM.  I only remember wearing high heels during my working days.

3.  Some of my friends call me "Ah Man" as my name ends with Mann.  Another reason was because I am a non-calculative, straight forward, no nonsense person, just like most men but physically, I don't look a bit like a man. Ahem! 

4.  I am a boring person.  I don't go window shopping and go shopping only when there is really a need.  I still remember during my working days, whenever I found myself short of working clothes, I would go on a one day shopping spree to replenish stock regardless of whether there was a sale on.  That's why, any good bargain wasn't really for me..    

5.  My ex-boss offered 3 months' paid salary as "cooling-off period" when I tendered my resignation last year. That simply translates to sitting at home and yet still get paid for 3 consecutive months while I took my time reconsidering my decision.  But no, I turned down his offer straight away.  Looking back, how hard-headed I could be at times...  Muahahaha...

6.    My most embarrasing moments was when I donned in a Sonny San's silky soft long dress, a gift from my husband, my then boyfriend  with a matching 3" high heels.  I was walking down the office staircase with my hands full of files when my 3" heel got caught on the hem of my flattering dress.  I tripped and "pukai"  shoving off few steps bottom down to stop the impact.  Ouch!!  In the process, I made a hole on my lovely dress and worse still, the heel gave way and I sprained my ankle~:(  That's why I always stick to No. 2..

7.  I love books.. and more than willing to spend $$$$ on books than branded goods, any time! 

I am not tagging anyone here but you all most welcome to pick it up.

We are the same in more ways than No. 2 and No. 4, for instance.

Your number 1 sounded similar. Me too always the tallest among friends. I slouch too. But, after doing yoga for some times, it helps to correct my posture.

i'm same like u on #2, i prefer something simple (t-shirt and shorts preferable). I wear flats once I got my 1st child. Used to wear only 1 inch heels while working.

Hey! We share the same height!

When i am in my primary and secondary school time, i always sit at the back, and i got a nickname - giraffe!!! I am so sad that time, i always like to hunch my back and walk, and my mum will always "hit" my back and ask me to stand straight, don't hunch!
