My heartfelt gratitude, love and kisses to my dearest ‘saheli’ (friend) Lubna of Yummy Foods for passing me these awards. I am very touched my dear. I am honoured that you believe I am worthy of receiving these awards. Once again, thank you. I have nothing to offer but for my congratulations to you on receiving the awards and my prayers that all your wishes come true and that you and your family are always in the best of health. God bless my friend.

The Kreativ Blogger Award comes with '7' tags. They are:

7 Things I Say More Often: Sweetheart (that’s what I call Mr G); Clean your room!; Sugar (when the kids are around); Shit (when the kids are not around); Bloody shit; When I was your age……; and Ya/Yup.

7 Things I Did Before: Worked four jobs; Ran a house; Read; Shopped; Had babies; Did two uni degrees; and Took Orders.

7 Things I Do Now: Still working (thank god not four jobs); still running a house; reading (though not much time for it); Shopping; Blogging; Collecting quality dinnerware; and Give orders!

PS: Thank god no more babies!

7 Things I Want to do: Win the lottery; Move to Queensland; Go on exotic holidays twice a year with money not being an issue; Own a house with land in the country with my own river and waterfall on the property; My masters in law (I am too lazy to go back to school); find the cure for obesity cos then I can eat whatever I like without repercussion (and the cure must not involve exercise!) and be smart - I am envious of all the clever people in the world!

7 Things That Attract Me About the Opposite Sex: Their eyes; smile; genuineness; must not be a slob; must not brag; a gentleman; and not adverse to housework!

7 Favourite Foods: Penang Char Kuey Teow; Ipoh Hor Fun; Sambal; Ayam Pati Ski; Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins; Banana Cake; and Chilli Crabs.

Thanks Teresa. I have missed your mexican word of the day and your cooking. I told my hubby about your 'fascinate' joke and he could not control his laughter.
