Yes am going to invite these bloggers for a game. YES A GAME!!!!! This is a funny game that reads your character..Remember its just for fun and not intended to hurt anyone. 

How to play?? 
So...the game goes like this, answer the questions in a post I have given you below. Your answer for those questions will tell what kind of person you are!!..After you finish posting check out what your answer means..I will update the answers only after you have posted thevanswers..This will be fun and am sure you will enjoy it!!

In case you feel uncomfortable with this game you can opt for answering the 11 questions that I have answered above!! But come on join the game :)

So lets go...
Questions to answer:
(Check for answers at the end of the post) (These are situation based questions, so now imagine yourself entering into a wild scary jungle all alone...don't worry lions are vegans there!!!)
  1. So now you are entering into a jungle and you like someone to accompany you..Who would that be? 
  2. As you move further into the jungle which are the two animals that you'd love to meet?
  3. Now you are walking further in and you find a big palace (not haunted), the door is opened and you want to go in, will you knock the door or will you just walk in without knocking. 
  4. So after you enter the palace you find a square and a round table and wish to select one for yourself, which one will you chose, the round one or the flat one?
  5. Then you find three jars, Gold, Silver and Bronze on the palace shelf and wish to chose one, which one will you chose?
  6. Now you have come out of the palace and you find yourself a nice place to settle, so you build a home there..How big will you construct your home? Compact or like a palace.
  7. Will you put a fence for your home? 
  8. You find a cup on the backyard of your home..Now which cup do you wish it to be? A porcelain cup or a paper cup or a silver cup? 
  9. Now there is a water source behind your home, which one would you like it to be? A lake or a sea?
  10. You find some ducks there and you'd like to pet them how many would you like to pet?
  11. Finally you find a way to go back home and there are two ways, either you must cross the risky river or go around the river, its a very long way but less risky, which one will you opt for?
So these are the fun questions that you must answer!! Each answer reads about you and its only for fun!! Answer them and inform me after you have posted them on your blog. I'll tell you what each answer means..Its really funny give a try am sure you will like it.

My 8th Award - Sunshine Blogger Award

I have also recieved an award from Punitha of South India Food recipes blog. I love her spirit, authentic recipes and the way she comments and encourages other bloggers. Thank you so much for the lovely sunshine award. Keep rocking :) Friends do check out her blog too!!

A glad news for all those who participated in "The Master Chef Contest"
Results will be published on August 8, 2012.

Answers for the interesting game; (Updated on 17 - 8 - 2012)

I found really interesting answers from all bloggers and am happy to share this fun with all of you!! Do check out what your answers mean!!!
  1. The person whom you like to accompany is your most favorite person in the whole world, you won't give up him/her for anybody's sake. 
  2. The first animal's character resembles you and the second one resembles your life partner's and the relation between them indicates the relation between both of you. For eg - Cheetah and Deer - Your hubby will be like a cheetah and you like a deer but both of you have different ideas, views and totally differ from each other..Similarly you can relate with other animals.
  3. The one who knocks the door does not poke his/her nose into other people's personal issue, they will advice or involve themselves in the issue only if asked. The one who does not knock the door will just blindly advice and involve themselves in others issues even if not asked for. 
  4. Square table - You will sort out issues easily and you are well balanced in all things always. Round table - You will have easier issues one after the other but you won't handle them properly and keep pending.
  5. Gold - Has a golden heart, kind and loving person winner at most times. Silver - Has a very proud heart. And good talkative kind.  Bronze - A very rough to handle person and never believe anyone. (Hope you did not chose bronze)
  6. Compact home - Not a luxury lover and is very satisfied; Palace - Luxury lover and always not satisfied.
  7. Put a fence - You always have a fence around your feelings and emotions you won't expose them (even to your family/love) but will keep it to yourself, a very strong person who can control his/her situation bravely. Won't put a fence - You will just spill out your emotions to anyone and everyone and feel hurt very soon. Your emotions and sense are always at peak. But a very friendly person. Secrets won't be your kind.
  8. Porcelain cup - Your friendship will easily break. Paper cup - Your friendship with others can easily be separated by a third person.  Silver cup - Your friendship bond with others is really very strong and can withstand any situation. 
  9. A lake - You are less emotional and romantic; A sea - You are more emotional and romantic.
  10. The number of ducks indicate the number of children you'd like to have..I have seen people writing none..Are ducks that bad???
  11. The one who crosses the river is a risk taker, brave person, relates time to gold and is very brisk. The one that takes the long route never takes risk and are always slow and steady, never care about time and are lazy too.
This game is just for fum and not intended to hurt anyone!! Hope you had a good time here :)
