Blogger Recognition Award

I must thank Somnath from The Traveloholic for this nomination. It is the first award for me in 2016 and  besides that I think it is so interesting to see how the readers of this blog can be found all over the world.  Check out Somnaths blog about his travel adventures and I do hope to read more stories there again soon.

How I started my blog:

I started this blog to get all the crazy stories I experienced with my Chinese in-laws out of my head. Over the years many weird things have piled up and this blog is a perfect “therapy” to survive this madness.


Death is lighter than a feather, Duty is heavier than a mountain!

Okay perhaps I try another advice: Take your time as all good things in life need time to develop.


Be sure to follow me also on Facebook and on Twitter as I will post there occasionally pictures which do not find their way into my blog posts. Furthermore I also have a YouTube Channel in which some videos might pop up from time to time

  1. *LOL* lovely piece of advice:) Regarding the motivation issue, I think the therapeutic aspect is actually one of the best factors to keep me going too. Blogging keeps me sane:)

  2. Congrats on your award and thank you so much for nominating me, I just found this today. Appreciate the award so much but as a general rule I don’t tend to participate in awards anymore, unless it is a new one that I haven’t had before. I’ve been awarded The Blogger Recognition Award before so I hope you won’t mind if I don’t participate this time. I am trying to get a book ready for publication, at last! So I’m finding it hard to find the time for awards, etc. Many thanks for thinking of me, I really do appreciate it, so much. 🙂

  3. Well done on the award 🙂 But I mostly liked this post because you listed so many blogs I haven’t read before. I am already lagging behind in all my blog reading as I didn’t read many (if any!) while I was in Nicaragua. Now I have some more to read haha!
