Well I have always looked at blogs and wondered why people would make them and in reading a few blogs I realise people used these online album/diaries for various reasons and I have enjoyed them.
Now my reasons for creating my first blog are simple, I have a large family of aunts, uncles and cousins all over the world and I am always keeping in touch with them via email, attaching photos etc which can be quite time consuming, so this blog idea is awesome for me.
Curious title? Yes and you are right in asking why FRUIT SALAD, well this blog is about me, my life and I and thats where Fruit Salad comes in. I was born of Chinese descent on a gorgeous Pacific Island called Fiji, in the capital called Suva, raised there until I was 22, was taught by English teachers, so I picked up the English accent and quirks, worked for a New Zealand company, married an Australian for 16 years and then married an American (there was a divorce inbetween).
Now this combination of sorts caused curiosity both on the phone and in person, I would quite often be asked what my accent was and I would get suggestions of South African, Hawaiian, Indian, English and now I have an American twang. The South African suggestion came because of the Indian and Fijian accent influence with a touch of British. I am one of those beings that can switch accents after a bit of exposure.
So in the end I would just say that I was a Fruit Salad.
