Flattered, Honoured, Speechless

Today's Smile-Inducer : So urm, I got an award! Now, I’ve been hearing about people getting Best Blog Awards but never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I would someday get one...There are no words to describe how honoured I feel that Kathy a.k.a Mamarazzi of SmallKucing thinks I’m worthy of this award. Thank you so much ! Oh boy, now there’s the pressure to live up to it … haha

Oh, and the rules are :

1] Post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his/her blog link.

[2] Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have recently discovered and think are great!

So here’s my list of the blogs that I visit, browse and finally leave feeling awed, inspired, and happy. In no definite order...

  1. Fiona – one of the best girls I’ve had the privilege to know. We go way back
  2. Owl Order – his photography staggers me most times.
  3. Suituapui – I go there for my daily drools and visual meals.
  4. Caring is not only sharing - Love reading about the various escapades around Ipoh town, the food and the travels
  5. Mally – we went to the same kindy, primary and high school. Rode in the same bus for 5 years but NEVER talked. Till I found out about her blog recently. J She grew up to be really gorgeous! Both in and out.
  6. Eza – a lovely girl, die-hard romantic. Reading her blog leaves me feeling oozy, cozy.
  7. Juney June – another classmate recently discovered through the wonder that is the internet. Loved catching up on old times
  8. Cleffairy – tells it as it is. Lovely writing
  9. Jared – The Awesomesauce Times. Need I say more?
  10. Yi Wei – really insightful observations, thoughts and reflections. Reading her humbles me.
  11. Guo Zheng – very deep, very intellectual, very intelligent reflections on daily happenings
  12. Eyeris – I constantly pop by for reviews on books, movies and music. Yum!
  13. Gabriel – A whole ton of interesting stuff. Very devout too
  14. Joash – Spins really heartwarming tales. Future doctor no less !
  15. J2kfm – introduces lovely places to eat in good ole Ipoh .. and everywhere else too

They leave me weak at the knees, in a good way. It’s just too sad that 15 is such a wee number..blogs not listed are by no means lacking greatness. This greedy girl devours anything written with unrestrained glee. =)

Cheers,

Jo

This is so so sweet! :D Yeah, though we never talked doesn't mean we can't talk now right Jo :) Maybe we were from different cliques thats why. But it's never too late to get to know each other. And seriously, I love reading your blog. Your language, how you put words together, I can never beat the way you write them. Mine's more like casual talk :) But yours always gets me like WHOA! I'm amazed honestly and I solute you for that Jo! Keep up the good work. Will continue keeping up with your updates ;) Hugshugs xx
