In response to Cee’s Photography, Share Your World tag.
I have enjoyed completing the Share Your World so much because the structure allows people to get closer to each other.
For example, I found out that Cee prefers having clean clothes over bathing, and that this is only imaginable if one lives in dry weather. Whereas, I prefer both clean clothes and a bath because I live in a hot and humid place. I thought that was a new and insightful perspective.
I treasure building strong connections because there are few voices and sometimes no face in the blogosphere. Blogging has not changed that much since its inception, in that, bloggers are writing for interaction as opposed to only wanting others to read.
With that, I will move on to this week’s Share Your World questions.
Favorite thing to photograph?
Write? Or Cook?
I cannot get enough of photographing sunsets. I have had the good fortune of enjoying some bright sunsets over the vast plains of Australia recently, and I have already shared some them on my Instagram over the past week. Thank you to those who have liked and subscribed to me on Instagram!
I have saved the best sunset for you, my sweet reader! I promised we will watch sunsets together with a cup of cocoa if only I could get the cup over to you.
I saw a kangaroo jumping into the sunset that day. I saw a few more, big and small, jumping away or waiting by the fences. I was so touched by the wildlife.
I have to show the time-lapse of the sunset and night falling to unveil the gorgeous crescent moon.
Ain’t it the perfect moment to hold somebody’s hands and whisper sweet nothings?
What has surprised you about blogging?
I have found self-hosting very helpful and meaningful, and if I daresay, empowering. I enjoy having 24/7 support from WordPress and I love telling people that my website is http://www.cocoaevenings.com. Nothing more, nothing less.
List at least five favorite desserts.
Ice-cream. I suppose spelling out five different flavours will not count but I will spell out the flavours I love anyway. Peppermint Chocolate Chips. Durian. Rum & Raisin. Raspberry Cheesecake.
Chilli Belgium Chocholate. Matcha Green Tea.
Yam Paste (Asian dessert).
Black bean rice porridge (a.k.a orh-bee-bur, another Asian dessert).
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for the friends that have welcomed me for Christmas party every year. I am grateful for my siblings who are like my friends.
I look forward to a fruitful week of gatherings.

P.S. I have taken the liberty to remove a couple of questions so as to save them for the last week of 2015 and also to keep this post tidy, without too many photos.
