Sunshine Blogger Award – 11th Nomination

I was nominated by Hilary for the Sunshine Blogger Award, the number is 11! And of course I’m trying to keep my ego under control 😁

Hilary lives in Canada, she’s a very sensitive woman, she hopes through this blog that somebody can relate to the anxiety, loneliness, and stress that she faces each and every day. I guess she’s doing a great job facing the ugly depression. Well done Hilary! 😁 Check her blog for more:

October 15th 2012. I was blogging to myself at the time.

A Bird Without wings in the big jungle 1 & 2. Because it was the first time I write about a part of my life and struggle.

https://huguetteantoun.com/2019/04/10/a-bird-without-wings-in-the-big-jungle-2-2/

4- What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned from blogging?
Respecting other’s ideas and thoughts.

5- What book has influenced you greatly?
The book of life. Most of my lessons and motivations are from real life experiences.

6- What is the meaning of life?
Each person sees life differently, but I guess that life = journey of consistent attempts to be happy, we need to enjoy and be happy otherwise it doesn’t makes sense I guess.
So find what makes you happy and do it before you die!

7- If you could eliminate one thing from your daily routine, what would it be and why?
The strict working hours, I rather have more flexible schedule so I can do other things.

8- What is the scariest thing you have ever done for fun?
I guess in the water park in Cyprus, some plays were so scary especially the very big water slides where at some point you feel you’re so close to fall while sliding and the borders are not so high!
Or a water slide where you end up with a very big hole of water, just like toilet and I don’t know how to swim but took it anyway!
And also one time in the amusement park, I took the swing ride and there was no barrier to protect me from falling, it was broken,  and I didn’t care.

very similar to this one

9- Are you a listener or a talker?
Listener, but when asked for help or advice, I can use words perfectly.

10- Would you rather have more time or more money?
More money to enjoy the remaining time, why do I need more time if I can’t enjoy it and see the world mainly, and to see the world I need money.

11- What song best describes your life right now?
I don’t know actually but will share one of the songs I love and I also love the movie as well!

  1. Wow your Lebanon is amazing, wonderful view! I love these beautiful pictures you’ve shown. Is that a blue cafe? so adorable, would love to sit there and try those … snacks? (the stacking food) looks so enticing! See?! You always have stories to tell that not everyone has experienced it. 😀

  2. Hi Huguette✨ Good to see the beautiful side of Lebanon😃 Beautiful pictures and beautiful destinations, 7 years of blogging 👏🙂, Beautiful Quotes of Life Teaching ✨😍 Life is indeed a teacher till last breath 😌, About work😂 That was funny 😂 Pablo Escobar said it right 😁, Wow Huguette is a great Listener, Glad my favourite blogger and a strict teacher is a listener.🤗 And the song is not bad, Liked the lyrics than song😉✨ Job Done on A2ZCueusociety ✨😉✍️

    • Thank you Simon 😊yes we have a very beautiful country, our problem is the government and rulers!
      I started in 2012 but didn’t blog, I was back at the end of 2018, so basically just few months as real blogging 😊
      Oh yes working hours can be hectic 😂 and you never get rich!
      Listening is an art, it’s very important and glad I am 😊thank you Simon for your kind words as always 🙏🏻😊
      Saw the quote post and it’s well done 👏👏

  3. Very interesting and powerful answers! 👏
    Amazing pics of Lebanon! 🌹
    Respecting others thoughts, book of life, experiences … I loved it! 💙
    Congratulations! Have a great day! 😊💕

  4. Another well deserved award my friend, and thank you so much for sharing your pictures from your home country.
    And your answers are always something I love to read.
    Thank you so much❤️

  5. Congrats dear ❤ wow it is your no.11 award, well done!!
    Your answer on your favorite book is very deep ❤ but if I have been the one who asked you this question, you won’t escape easy because I will demand to know the complete list of your favorite books
    Oh I’m more the listener type as well, I’m very quiet. The world needs more listener types
    Thank you for those beautiful pics of our country, but did you have to put the delicious food pictures so I can have late night cravings, “here goes my diet”

    • Thank you Nadine 🙂 yes sheyfee hahaah
      My answer is very true, I didn’t read so many books but faced lot of things and met lot of people that I feel I know many things! You know when you struggle to live and eat you don’t care about reading (not a pretext) but I was good at school and I used to read a lot but not important books, just silly stories…So you can’t demand a list from me 😀
      I’m a very good listener, because I don’t ignore what people are saying also between the lines or showing and yes we certainly need more listeners!
      You know enny baladna 7elou bass 7ekmna w sha3bna zbeli heheh dakhilik shu ana ye3ni la2? Kent ekoul dazzzinit baklewa 3al 2a3di, halla2 bshemma mn b3id hahah yel3an abou el diet

      • Damn you’re very convincing in your answer, that I might withdraw the question about the book list =(
        Since you are a good listener, it is a sign that you are a good friend and very empathetic person=)
        My god dazzineh “shocked, it is so sweet how could you? but then who I am to judge I’m chocoholic and I cannot tell you the daily amount that I consume from chocolate

      • well if you like honesty and I know you do, you’ll find me convincing 🙂 sorry didn’t mean to make you sad!
        I have been called an angel more than I could remember because I was there for many people! and I’m proud of that
        I love sweet, this is my curse! I eat one jar of Nutella and I don’t even need water after it you see? hahah reason why I gained weight and now I’m not planning to gain any more weight after I reached my perfect weight and working out also for a healthier body 🙂
        Chocolate is life! I used to buy a bag full of Mars, snickers, Twix, Leo,….and 3eddi w l7a2ini and I can eat the bag without blinking 😀 so now I’m doing lot of efforts!

      • Yay another chocoholic 😀 though the part of not drinking water after eating whole Nutella jar makes you inhuman. I will send you my chocolates, I’m trying to lose weight but with no success:D

  6. I honestly wanted to skip reading awards. I do, but I’m addicted reading the words and before I know it, it’s the end. I also don’t want to comment because I have nothing much to contribute, but I read it so I feel like I should said something… but I’m to sleepy to say anything 😦

  7. Damn, you’re good 🙂 I love Robert Downey Jr. 🙂
    These pictures of Lebanon are awesome! I really hope one day to see it! I will have a local guide 🙂 The nature, the food, everything looks so perfect!
    All these posts in Arabic looks like paintings to me 🙂 Sadly I don’t understand it…
    A bird without wings but that never gives up! I believe is exactly what you are also now…but I’m sure you will find your wings and your dreams will come true 🙂
    We are all different and we all have our ideas, respecting each other I believe is a must in the blogging community!
    Our life, our journey with ups and downs is what inspires us, what makes us grow and what keep us moving! Yes indeed, find the thing that makes you happy and do it! It is an so amazing feeling!
    I would definitely eliminate the strict working hours…I believe sometimes it is a so waste of time…:( and time is so precious! And don’t get me wrong, I do work, and I work a lot, but I would like to work at my schedule and not others schedule that doesn’t have any sense 😦 And yes, we all agree with Pablo 🙂
    Oh my, you really don’t have limits, taking the ride even if it was broken, without protection…Huguette better don;t do it next time! I understand you need adrenaline in your life but maybe try things a little bit less scarier :)…more for humans since you are here now 🙂
    I know you know how to use words perfectly! What a great strength! Don’t forget that I still need that lessons of expression 🙂
    I so agree with you, money helps us with everything in life! Money helps us do the things that we love and enjoying our short time on this planet!
    What a great and sad song! 🙂 Definitely part of Huguette’s life 🙂
    Ah ok, long story short, what I wanted to say is Congratulations my dear! 🤗🤗🤗🤗❤️❤️❤️

    • Thank you Riby for this lovely interaction 😊
      You must see the Avengers then hahah (you will not be happy, oups :/ )
      Oh sure, you have a local guide and a friend here that will make you taste all the food and sweets hahaha 😊😊
      I translated this one, it was so political anyway and ranting! Appreciate always the words you say about me, I guess the bird is more an Eagle now gladly but still needs to fly away 🙂
      I didn’t get you wrong, all my life I’ve been working, never had anything the easy way, but yes it’s waste of time when someone imprison you for 9 hours or so! And you’re still poor hahah (Pablo all the way :D,)I’m already crazy and have fond to the Mafia anyway!
      I guess I need a psychologist to tell me why I have this need to do crazy things hahah this is nothing beside other things also, now I just drive in a crazy way, no time for other things 🙂
      Money is so important, after health, you need money to enjoy this damn life! I’m logical and I know that very well despite not being materialistic at all! I can give you the things I love the most and I wouldn’t care…:)
      this song I believe was so well done, so sad yes, but I love the movie as well! Maybe a part at some point 🙂
      Your Tuesday is moving forward 😀 Hope it’s a great and cool day 🤗🤗🤗❤️❤️❤️

      • Oh, naughty you, don’t spoil my expectations :/ Soon, I feel it that will be soon….I will finally see it 🙂
        I believe visiting a city with a local is so different that just seeing it as a tourist 🙂
        You are definitely progressing and soon you’ll also find your wings 🙂
        Exactly! Imprisonment 🙂 Waste of time! Well, hopefully one day will change 🙂
        When we refine Pablo’s way or robber that bank 🙂
        You must feel the adrenaline 🙂 But just be careful, just a little bit 🙂
        Unfortunately is true! Money are important! Damn! And we are still poor 😦 You are very kind my dear, I wouldn’t be so kind 😀😀 I was just kidding 🤗🤗🤗
        Honestly I don’t remember the movie…ahahaha…me and the movies are not a very good friend 🙂
        Busy day but almost at the end 🙂
        Wish you a great afternoon my dear 🤗🤗🤗❤️❤️❤️

      • Well you have one week to watch it or I will throw spoilers everywhere 😎😎😎😎 oh yes! 😈😈
        Yes sure we need local to explain the history and stuff, I know shit about it 😁
        Started some guidelines for bank robbery 🦸‍♀️🦹🏾‍♂️🧙🏼‍♂️😂
        Ribana is anti movies 😂 it’s okay not a big deal if you enjoy life instead 😁
        Hope we’ll be less poor in the near future 😁
        Glad the busy day is about to end 😊 have a great afternoon and relax 😊😊🤗🤗🤗💕💕💕🧸🧸

      • Naughty Huguette! I’m not anti movies, I do watch them, rarely though, but usually I don’t remember them…ahahahahah….
        Who cares about history when there is such a good food and wonderful nature 🙂
        Ok, great, maybe we can do it on time for Christmas and give us some presents 🙂 Have a great day my dear 🤗🤗🤗💕💕

      • 😁😁😁😁😁 I still want to throw spoilers everywhere!
        Oh yes enjoying the moment, the food and all this is the essence of it!
        hahahah whether I rob a bank or not, I’m usually Santa Clause in Christmas 😀 I’m a hopeless case, I love to bring gifts!
        few hours and we say bye bye Wednesday 🤗🤗🤗💕💕💕

      • Stoooooop! 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈
        That emotions when you see them opening the gifts right? Is awesome 😉💕 For that I believe there isn’t any price 😉
        Exactly! Bye bye Wednesday 😉
        🤗🤗🤗💕💕💕🧸🧸🧸🧸

      • So first scene is 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁
        I’ll wait one week 😁😁😁
        Yes priceless emotions indeed! It’s more like a gifts festival 😂😂
        3 down!! 2 to go 🤗🤗🤗💕💕

  8. Hi Huguette ❤️💕
    Heartiest congratulations to you dear 💕 wow!! 11th nomination!!
    Well I really loved the pictures of Lebanon. Thank you for them.well I hope in future I can visit your beautiful country. ( You sent a link to Mel, thank you for that) the food looks yummy 😋😋🤤
    7 yrs of blogging.. wise words by Pablo Escobar …a good listener huh!! That’s nice.. after all today no one wants to listen but talk..
    Extremely thankful for your Nomination. Thank you for considering me worthy for this..💕💕💕💕💕

  9. Congratulations again Huguette!! Fantastic pictures of Lebanon, looks so beautiful for sure. Each country has it’s own beauty. It would be nice to travel around the world and see more of it. Good to see you are a listener, not too many around it seems and sometimes I think it’s more important than anything else. People often need someone to just listen to them and that alone can be a big help. I hope you enjoy your week Huguette!😃😺🌞🌳

    • Thank you Steve! Yes lot of beauty in this world 🙂 too bad no much time! Lebanon is so beautiful and we have lot of beautiful nature and night life and villages and activities…too bad we have bad governors!
      Listening is a must! we can’t ignore people’s pain and struggle no matter how trivial it was
      Thank you for stopping by and for your time and interaction, I truly appreciate it 😺🌞

      • I would love to travel more around the world, time isn’t the issue with me, cost is however.😂Leaders of countries can certainly spoil things.😕 With the right leaders Lebanon would be a wonderful place.😃 Yes indeed, listening is so important. Enjoy your day Huguette!!😄🌞😸

      • Money and time! OMG I wish we could control that :/ Hopefully you’ll be able to manage as much as you can!
        Oh yes Lebanon before the civil war was called the “Switzerland of the Middle East” can you imagine? And the fact is we enjoy life and love life more than people that live is most respectful countries in the world despite our rulers give us nothing!
        Have a great sunny day and enjoy it 😄🌞

      • Wow, cool name for your country! Too bad things have changed so much, but change is possible again for the better. People here complain about how bad things are, and I say, hey wake up and look around the world, we have it good really. Sure, it’s maybe not as good as it used to be, prices keep going up, a cucumber which should be .99 this time of year is 3.99, but we still have it so good. I think people just like to complain. Waste of time and energy.😂😁Hope you have a great evening!!😃🌞😺

      • Yes you can Google that and have more information
        People will always complain but it serves for nothing I guess because the real work is in elections and no guarantees as well
        Let’s hope for the best and enjoy your day as well 😊🌞😸🌞

  10. Congratulations lovely Huguette, Lebanon looks lovely, but i still can’t stop looking at the cookies😁oho 2012, i think all your posts are unique, respect at the blogging area missing a lot, i use to like, now i’m mostly focusing on my blogging goals, i like first quote, life is short and is not easy to be happy💙, flexible schedule would good thing, i hope, that you can make it one day, money needed, everyone need it, other wise we can’t live, nice song, thank you for nominating me🤗💙

    • Thank you Ilona for stopping by and for your time as well 😊 yes this is Baklawa and it’s so famous sweet here! 😁
      I actually started on December 2018, from 2012 to 2018 I wasn’t blogging
      About your blogging goals I wish you the best but I really don’t recommend 10 posts per day, if you want people to really read (people will get tired and start to click blindly) you must think about how many followers we have to respect them and read their content , it’s mission impossible really 🙄 (yes of course you told me before I don’t have to read, I thought to tell you one more time but it’s up to you totally 🙂)
      Glad you loved the quotes and the song 😊
      My pleasure 😊 enjoy the award 😊💕

      • I read only post what i really like, i dont read everyone, and each post of the person😊👽🧡, the reasons is why i m posting now this much, from September i wont be able to do it at all, so i m trying to do the most i can, i m not even sure if i will be able to read others as well after this summer👽🙂

      • not speaking only about you, about all bloggers that actually read 🙂
        After all it’s your rules and you’re free, for me it’s like eating 10 meals today because I won’t be eating tomorrow, this is how I see it, but I can put 7 meals in freezer and eat them progressively, meaning you can schedule your posts for the days you will be so busy or you don’t have much ideas…This is how I see it, especially that when people see so many posts, the posts won’t be given the proper right which you are seeking from blogging…You are seeking real readers I believe…but again I apologize if I sounded telling you what to do, not my intention 🙂 ❤ Have a good day

  11. Gurl you are crazy!! I can’t do those rides and slides. I will have a heart attack. The bravest ride I’ve been through is only the Flight of Passage of Avatar. But that’s it. No extreme rides for me. I will die I swear. I am looking for the shawarma photo 🙂

    • Hahah it’s okay each person is different and we know our limits 😊 I’m crazy what can I say
      Shawarma is definitely better 😁
      Thank you AL for your time 😊💕
