Liebster Award


Liebster award

Yes! I received it. I had seen Liebster awards being given to bloggers in the blogosphere and lo, one came walking around to me. Yippee!!! Thank you, thanks a ton A Rat's Nibble for the nomination. I am loving and living every moment of it. Being a loner on a Valentine’s week is a pain for sure. Thanks for being my medication!

What is a Liebster award?
Liebster, a German word, in literal translation means “dearest”. It is awarded to new and upcoming bloggers by other fellow bloggers from the blogosphere. A blogger’s favorite/dearest blogs are his/her Liebster nominations. Believe me it’s a wonderful feeling to know that someone somewhere avidly reads your blog and has it as his/her favorite.
The idea is to encourage, support and share the blogging spirit. It’s also a method to discover new blogs. 

Rules? Where is the award? How does it look like?
The nomination and a following blog post is the award in itself. Rules are plain simple.
a.       Post 11 things about yourself, as in your introduction
b.      Answer the 11 questions set for you by the nominator
c.       Make a questionnaire for your nominees
d.      Declare nominees
e.       Comment on each nominees latest blog post
How I Feel after receiving this award?   

11 Things about me:
1.      Hi there, thanks for stopping by at my personal blog, my “Meow Connect”.
2.      I am a 23 year old aspiring female brought up in the city of dreams, Mumbai
3.      Music and Blogging are my passions and what I pursue in my spare time. I wish to learn to play a guitar soon. Otherwise I am looking up for Anime. And oh yes, Animes are NOT CARTOONS!
4.      I am exactly 5 feet tall and I love to view the world from various angles. I love my pure brown eyes and am proud of it.
5.      I am true blue lover and a complete Sagittarian. Being a cusp the only Scorpion quality I have is “possessiveness”. A rather controlled one.
6.      I am very expressive. Gestures and small things mean a lot to me. Thus, I love personalized stuff, thoughtful gestures and handwritten letters. Nothing beats a handwritten letter.
7.      A momma’s girl, daddy’s “babu” and sister’s “a-z”; Grandparents >> Parents >> Friends>> Work that’s the hierarchy I follow.
8.      I am a looking out for someone who could be my partner in crime. Someone apart from my besties (Schumacher, Ajju, Pari, Kurru, Abu, Sneha Maa, Ansari sahab).
9.      I incorporate minimalism and attention to detail. I love selecting gifts according to a person’s nature. I like unearthing qualities of a person through their sun sign. I am quite amazed by the similarities I have with fellow Sagittarian’s and I have a huge chunk of VIRGO friends. I connect almost instantly to Sagi’s & Virgo’s
10.  I believe my country can progress if efforts are channelized the right way.
11.  I wish to open Meow Incorporation one day which will include my not-for-profit ideas and my Snuffles Jay’s art creations. I am already the imaginary CEO.

Nominator’s questions:
1. What is the best word to describe you?
Ans. “Helpful” Most of the people I meet, have given me this compliment. I am rather amazed at this thought though. Umm apart from this I am thoughtful.
2. Tell me your wildest fantasy.
Ans. Ahhh!! I remember it so vividly, I am on a forest safari and a momma chimpanzee just lifts me up from the whole group and swings thru the forest and takes me home and I am like so freaking scared. I visualized the chimpanzee taking me thru every nook and corner of the jungle. From the furious river, to the steep valley. Oh my god. It’s been the craziest fantasy ever.
3. What scares you the most?
Ans. Ghosts and reptiles.
4. What is your greatest achievement so far and why do you think it is so?
Ans. My greatest achievement so far has been my blog. Not only it bought out the best in me, but it also helps me connect. Connecting for me is something like a platform to express views. Meow is one of my aliases. Thus the name, “Meow Connect”.
5. What you think could be the best way to eliminate poverty?
Ans. Make a not-for-profit hospitality chain, train and employ the poor. Multiply on the success of chain and gather more people to employ. I have this idea not just for the poor but also for the handicapped and the eunuch section of the society. They are ones who are NOT GIVEN EMPLOYMENT. I believe that every human must be given an opportunity. It’s an equal world and people should not be divided on the basis of caste, creed and sex.
6. You are stranded in a life boat with Richard Parker. Do you think that Bengal Tiger would not eat you?
Ans. obviously yes, WE are family. SHER-NA Hahaha
7. What is the best trick you think you have done to impress your crush but turned the other way?
Ans. Um Hahaha, I will have to think. Yea, here’s one. I ended up buying shoes to look sporty, lean and all as I am short and quite stout. But I had a hell of a time with those shoes.
8. Which movie’s climax you didn’t like and wanted to change and how?
Ans. Frankly speaking, every recent bollywood movie. First on the list is to kill the scriptwriter.
9. What is your favorite example of architecture style?
Ans. The entire Urban Bombay. Wow, the old Victorian buildings. I would just keep walking forever, admiring every tile!
10. Do you feel superior to your opposite gender? If yes, in what way? If no, why not?
Ans. No, Gender equality will take some time to reach India. Preconceived notions about women still prevail even after the advent of the 21st century
11. What's your true and honest opinion about A Rat’s Nibble?
Ans. It’s one of the sweetest and most genuine like blog I have ever come across. Had I known earlier that platforms like Indiblogger and Blogadda exist I have would have come across such a wonderful blog earlier. I regret the fact that I missed out on a lot. But yes, I will definitely catch up.


1.      If you could travel anywhere in the world and money was no object, where would you go? Why?
2.      If you had to live in a decade other than the current one, which would you choose? Why?
3.      Any current events capturing your attention as of late?
4.      Sailboat or cruise ship?
5.      Your life is going to become a script for a movie. Who would you want to play you?
6.      Not counting family…what do you feel your greatest accomplishment is so far in life?
7.      Pushpins? Or dry erase markers?
8.      Which anime character would you be? Why?
9.      Something that you learned recently.
10.  How many pairs of shoes do you have? Don’t lie. It’s good to feel the shame. Let it burn.
11.  What are the best and worst about blogging?

I am eagerly waiting to read the answers LOL
