And the award goes to…


After a fun weekend (more details later this week), I put on my Macbook on this morning to discover that our little blog has been nominated and awarded The Versatile Blogger Award! An award! Yay! Who doesn’t like to flaunt their accomplishments with a big plastic cup spray painted gold? Oh wait… we don’t get a trophy? Do we get a certificate? No… Ok I see. Nevertheless, what we do get is the accolade that people out there (bearing no relation to me or Faraaz!) enjoy reading this blog and find it “Fascinating & fun!” Super sweet.


So in my acceptance speech, I ‘d like to thank Travel Thayer for nominating us. Please check out his informative blog here.

As per the rules of receiving this award, I will tell you 7 things about the authors of this blog that you may not have guessed. Here goes:

1. I think wearing glasses is delightful and own a pair just for fashion (since I have 20/20 vision… damn!).

2. Faraaz is wasted at architecture and teaching English. His real talents lie in his hands because he is the most incredible masseuse.

3. I am really short and often get mistaken for a university student. Grrrr.

4. Faraaz is ambidextrous although he tells people that he is just left handed. I’ve seen him draw beautifully with both hands… so handy.

5. Faraaz is not afraid of anything. ANYTHING. I, on the other hand, run away from large animals, can’t look down from a high place and have a germ aversion.

6. I have a love of mushrooms. I could eat them for every meal & when I go to family or a friend’s house for a meal, they always make me mushrooms specially.

7. Faraaz is an inconsistent driver, either too fast or too slow with terrible impatience. But his parking is impeccable. I’m a smooth driver but hate parking and never get it right. It works well for us 🙂

The last part of receiving this award is to nominate 15 other blogs that we find worthy. Here are our picks of blogs. Some have amazing photographs, some with thought provoking posts, some with great layouts but all enjoyable:

  2. Aneesa, I feel your pain. I also am very short and get mistaken as a college student regularly…but I’m 30. Oh well, good things come in small packages, right?! Great list of blogs!
