Sunshine Blogger Award


In August, I got nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award from Nick at . Nick’s blog is about personal finance and sharing knowledge that leads all of us to make better financial decisions. Because long term happiness and personal development is the goal. Some of his popular posts are 3 reasons to have a Strategy for Financial Independence and continue with How to get Rich 101: Make your Money work for you. You can also read more about Nick here.

The Sunshine Q&A’s

Now over to the Nick’s questions to me:

What is your best productivity -or- crsunshine-blogger-awardeativity hack ? Pick one!

When I was 19, I wrote a couple of letters to get a few people transfer their nail license from one state to another. They all wrote me blank checks, but I didn’t take any :P. Now, if I want something, many of them would bend over backward for me. Sometimes payments don’t have to be made in monetary. 😛

What is the coolest place you’ve ever been to?

I grew up in the mountain. I like hiking. Looking down from the mountain top when the air is thin, and the view is spectacular and no camera can capture that moment, that sense. I’ve been to a few mountain tops in Blue Ridge mountains, Puerto Rico, etc.

  1. Describe one of your long term goals (10+ years ahead)

This is an interesting question. If Mr.WRI don’t work out, I’ll probably go back to school and just travel to do doctor without border. I want to learn many languages, I’m working on my French right now.

What book, blog or podcast have you enjoyed recently?

Many blogs fascinate me as I’m still in my learning state. I probably read at least 50 books a year. When I start reading, I’d forget about everything including Mr. 🙂 So this year, I’ve been backing off from reading books and only reading blogs. Everyone on my follow

What side hustle are you already or plan to be involved in to make more money?

Recently, I’ve been into credit card bonus reward to get free hotel stays to cut down on travel expenses. However, if everything works out as planned, then I teach part time, manage rental properties, do research, maybe doing some tutoring on some of my language, math, art, sport skills that I’ve racked up over the years LOL. The options are unlimited. 😛

  1. Hey Vivianne – thanks for sharing some information about you and passing on the award 🙂

    Everyone seems to be doing credit card hacking to get free flights and free nights, I definitely need to get more into this when my mortgage application is done haha.

    That’s cool that you can read 50 books a year, I had to slow down once I started blogging, would there be any you’d recommend ?


  2. Oh boy….somebody nominated humblefi 🙂 Once in a century kind of event! Thanks. I will be out this week on work related matters….I will think about questions though!

    I read up on your answers…nice ones! It is very nice to see your plan when you are FI….that shows you are mostly there. Best of luck!

    • My answers were somewhat rather boring, I wasn’t much in the mood as most of the roads in the city got blocked off prevented me from getting into work at the hospital. 🙂

  3. Thanks for the nomination, Vivianne 🙂
    Another blogger already tagged me last month with different questions so I did a post recently. But here are my answers.

    What is your dream job? Pretend that money isn’t a factor.
    Car tester for Tesla Motors

    What would you do if you won $1million?
    Stick it in several Vanguard funds that generate 3.6% annual income on average. Forget about it and spend the recurring $36,000 every year.

    If you could be any animal, what would you be?
    A falcon

    If you could have any superpower, what power would you have?

    What is your favorite food? (Feel free to share a recipe.)

    • Tesla car tester? That’s such a boyish answer – cars, trucks, and trains :). I wonder if people who like money would go for being a bank teller, so they could touch money all day long. Hah!

      I was into sushi for awhile, I went as far as buying sushi set to make my own sushi, invited work friend for gathering party :). Those were the days…

  4. Vivianne,
    Thanks for the nomination. I seem to be having trouble with my blog template settings, it hasn’t posted any of my posts for the past 2 months. I will get to this questionnaire as soon as possible!

  5. Hi Vivianne! Thanks for nominating me! I will get working on your questions ASAP.

    Its pretty cool that you grew up in the mountains. I plan on checking it out one day. 🙂
