Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday


  1. Very nice getting to know more about you. Found you on Over the Moon Link Party.

  2. Oh my gosh..that was a LOT of questions for you to answer! I liked reading them, though.

    I like the last song you listened to. I think that was mine as well. Hahaha! It's just sooooo good!

  3. I like reading these things and learning random facts about people! I might have to do this one myself, eventually.

  4. A cookie decorator that doesn't have a sweet tooth!
    You don;t have your ears pierced.
    yay vampires that look like Ian Somerhalder
    I love how you answered your love or money question with a question mark.. it's naive to think one is better than the other.. I feel they go hand in hand. Money makes the love easier and love makes the money worth it.

  5. Loads of questions neatly answered :-)

  6. I love vampires, too :).. But I do believe in aliens hahaha. Nice to know you more in this fun way. And your angelic cookie is super cute!

  7. I was worried I would be unable to drive a car. I too am spatially challenged. I do drive, but I stay far away from parallel parking. My husband laughs at me for it.

  8. I remember Lee Majors. ;) I wanted to BE the Bionic Woman at one point in my childhood, lol. Love reading your answers and getting to know more about you!

  9. Veronica,

    WOW, that's a whole lot of questions to answer. But...I am definitely going to lift them from the host site you reference. I began a "Get to Know Me" series, if you're interested. I have two posts thus far if read yesterday's post then I give mention to my first one there.

    I loved the Havana Chicken song. That's so funny. Strangely, I shared Camila's version on my site recently. I may have to use this rendition in a my Friday Sillies post. :)

    Thanks for visiting today. Have a wonderful week!

  10. What a lot of work this was.

    Have a terrific Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  11. Great blog post. Must have taken you ages to answer all 100 questions :) #bloggersbest

  12. You cookie decorating skills are incredible! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Great to find out a bit more about you Veronica. Sarah #fabfridaypost

  14. This is great Veronica. I learned a little more about you. Thanks for sharing on Sunday's Best.

  15. Well done that must have taken a while, thank you for sharing #KCACOLS

  16. I love reading random facts about bloggers! And i agree, cockroaches are just grim. #kcacols

  17. I love this tag, you learn so much about people! #kcacols

  18. What a super way to share and get to know each other! I don't like bugs of any kind, so cockroaches get a great big eek from me too -- worse though, vermin. Mice, not nice. #kcacols xoxo

  19. Great to get to know you better - I took part in this tag not long ago. I hate cockroaches too and agree with you about teleportation (as an expat that would be wonderful, just to be able to pop home!). I also can't drive, it's probably the closest thing I have to a phobia. #KCACOLS

  20. Gosh! What a long list. I've never read your blog before, but I feel like I know you well now! Lots of interesting facts, your family history in Malaysia sounds interesting. #KCACOLS

  21. I remember six million dollar man! That was a fun show.
