Grubbs ‘n Critters Interview Featured on Bright Expats!

Category: Blogging

Crazy has a whole new meaning for me. Not in a bad way, but in a crazy good way because recently, Elena Tamarit, a journalist of a Belgium-based expat community blog, Bright Expat, has contacted me for a special post about my blog and globetrotter life.

What an honour to be interviewed and unexpectedly discovered by another expat community from the other side of the world! Bright Expats, in her mail to me thought that my world is “funny”. The feature was entitled as “hilarious Ann’s world in Thailand” –  a compliment in my books!  I’m deliriously over the moon and certainly humbled to be featured there. 



Here are the questions which were posed and how I went about answering them:

  • Expat family, and also multicultural! Could you give us a short presentation of your family (animals included)?  My family of mutt and just a little bit more about me!
  • How did you meet your husband and how your globetrotter adventures started? This is a creepy, but interesting story; one that I haven’t shared before!
  • Can you keep your customs, language and traditions in a multicultural marriage? You may have read this from my past interview on Blog Expat, (also the author of Tiny Expats)! My sentiments about culture, customs, language and traditions have not changed. 
  • What do you like to do in your free time apart of, of course, writing about your family adventures? The first thing that came to mind is of course my passion for home-cooked meals! 
  • What attracts you the most of a country? I think I’m too practical for all the fluffy stuff…
  • Could you tell me a bit about your social life? And about your mummy life?  I had to think hard about this one. Come to think of it, I have a better social life since I became a mom!
  • Would you like to search the stabilization staying in your current country or are you thinking about moving abroad someday? Hmmmmm…

Read all of my responses here, some of which you don’t know yet! I hope you enjoy the read, and if you are ever going to be settling down in Belgium, you really don’t have to look very far. 

Thank you, Elena and Bright Expats for this amazing feature! This is a truly a huge honour for a small-time blogger like me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. So nice to learn new things about you! Wonderful blog.
    Do you think you can moderate each comment so that info does not have to be supplied before every comment. You would definitely get more comments that way.

    • Thank you Faraday! I wish I can do something more about the comments…:( It really pains me that one. But because my blog is self-hosted, it seems that that’s the best I can do. I’m so sorry…:( ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ And because I know how annoying it can be, I am really grateful that people took the time to comment. You have no idea how much I appreciate that. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just stupid self-hosting function at play.

  2. Congrats on another interview! And thank you for remembering me as well ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope, everything’s well on another side of the world ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Of course I remember! You never forget your first! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope your move is going well, too! And thank you.

  3. The honour is mine, thank you Ann and your great family for being part of our expat community! Looking forward to continue reading you

  4. WOW, Ann! CONGRATS!!! I loved learning more about you (with the visual effects too) ๐Ÿ™‚ The story about you and your husband is wild! It was truly a fate, written in the stars! I’m so happy for you ๐Ÿ˜€ Hugs and smooches!

    • Thank you, Jas! So glad you read it. It’s crazy wild…and I suppose it was one of those “destiny” story. Still give me the shivers, especially since I don’t quite buy into “fate”. On this, I surrender. hahahaaa! *muacccks*

  5. Wow! Congratulations! You go Mama..
    There’s nothing more encouraging when people recognized your talent & effort in writing especially if you are writing about your passions, your loveones and the things dear to you.
    It was a pleasure to meet you in this Blogworld..I am glad I have so many things I can relate with you especially that we’re both married to Dutch and we are very hands-on parent.
    Greetings from Kuwait !

    • Thank you, Christina! I’m honoured to have the opportunity with Bright Expats. It is a pleasure to meet you in this blogworld and I stumbled upon your blog from a tweet from Estelea who is a dear friend of mine. Oh yeah…those Dutch; you know! LOL.
      Thank you for stopping by. Now I’ll need to make sure I’m getting your posts in my inbox! ๐Ÿ˜€
