Awards Galore!!

Posted by : foongpc | Saturday, November 1, 2008 | Published in


I have a confession to make - I am not a big fan of tags and memes.

But I have received 5 awards for the past two months and have been tagged by quite a number of people I'm feeling a little guilty not responding to them.

Actually, I'm pretty lazy to tag others. However, this does not mean I don't appreciate all those awards I received. In fact, I would like to apologise to all those who had tagged me and sent me the awards for responding this late!

Since I am pretty free today, I decided to gather all those awards here on this post. Yes, everything in one single post!

Since some of the awards I received are the same award but from different people, I'm going to do this just once.

Well, let me start with the awards.

The first award is the Brillante Weblog Award, which I received from Monica, Two Superheroes and Tekkaus. Thank you, guys!

Here are the rules:
1. Put the logo on your blog
2. Add a link to the person who awarded it to you
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Add links to these blogs on your blog
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog

I am nominating Johnny Ong, Keeyit, Life Ramblings, Low Han Yew, Khengsiong, Babette, Pete and Nkw@i.

The second award is the Butterfly Award from Tekkaus (again!) and Suituapui.

Same rules as the above award:
1. Put the logo on your blog
2. Add a link to the person who awarded it to you
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Add links to these blogs on your blog
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog

I'm nominating Cbenc12, Faisal Admar, Health Nut Wannabee Mom, Molly, Pikey, Two Superheroes, Day-dreamer and Jam.

The third award is My Blogging Friends Forever BFF Award from Low Han Yew.

Here are the rules:
1. Only five people allowed
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award

I'm awarding this award to Lina, Suituapui, Monica, Bengbeng and Tammy.

The fourth one is Kick Ass Blogger Award from Babette.

Do you know any bloggers that kick ass?

Maybe they've got incredible, original content. Or they're overflowing with creativity. Is it someone that helps you become a better blogger? Or a bloggy friend you know you can count on? Or maybe it's someone who simply inspires you to be a better person... or someone else who sends you to the floor, laughing your ass off.

Whatever the reason may be, I'm sure you know at least a couple of bloggers that kick ass. Well... why not tell 'em so?

  • Choose 5 bloggers that you feel are "Kick Ass Bloggers"
  • Let 'em know in your post or via email, twitter or blog comments that they've received an award
  • Share the love and link back to both the person who awarded you and back to
  • Hop on back to the Kick Ass Blogger Club HQ to sign Mr. Linky then pass it on!
I'm giving this award to Gallivanter, Nick Phillips, Neo, Eiling and Falcon.

Finally, the last award is from Health Nut Wannabee Mom who presented me the Uber Amazing Blog Award.

Uber (synonym to Super) Amazing Blog Award is a blog award given to sites who:
~ inspires you
~ makes you smile and laugh
~ or maybe gives amazing information
~ a great read
~ has an amazing design
~ and any other reasons you can think of that makes them uber amazing!

The rules of this award are:
* Put the logo on your blog or post.
* Nominate at least 5 blogs (can be more) that for you are Uber Amazing!
* Let them know that they have received this Uber Amazing award by commenting on their blog.
* Share the love and link to this post and to the person you received your award from.

This award goes to QuaChee, Tekkaus, Eastcoastlife, Mariuca and My Bug Life.

Now, if you don't want to pass on these awards or post them on your blog, I can understand. It's perfectly OK to me because as I said earlier, I am not a big fan of tags and memes and awards! I have already passed you the awards - you decide what you want to do with them!

So which of these awards I like best? I think I like them all! Thank you guys for giving me these fabulous awards. I am just so honoured and grateful that there are people who appreciate my blog.

OK, now for the tags.

First "tag" I received from Rebecca.

Here are the rules:
1. List these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.

3. Tell 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.

4. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

5. Link the person who tagged you.

6. Leave a comment for each blogger.

Ok, the 7 facts about myself which is easy...

1. I can play the piano quite well and I can play for hours and hours!

2. I am a huge fan of Mariah Carey.

3. I prefer to sms rather than call someone.

4. I am a night owl. I sleep late and don't like to wake up early.

5. I can't drink to save my life.

6. I don't smoke.

7. I enjoy watching "The Amazing Race" reality show.

Now comes the hard part about the 6 unspectacular quirks about myself....

1. I like all kinds of music except heavy metal. You can almost say I'm eclectic.

2. I like to exercise and enjoy the muscle soreness after that. In fact, the muscle soreness is what keeps me motivated.

3. I eat fruits for breakfast, and ONLY fruits. No toast, coffee, nasi lemak, roti canai, or chow kuay teow for me.

4. I always get up on the left side of my bed, never the right side.

5. I don't like to wear a watch so I don't wear one. I refer to my handphone, which is always with me, for the time.

6. I hate cockroaches and must kill if I see one!

And I'm tagging the following 7 people.....




Faisal Admar



Nick Phillips

Oh, if any of you not listed here want to do this tag, go ahead! I would love to read the 7 facts and 6 quirks about yourselves!

The second "tag" is from Babette.

Here are the rules:

1. Each player starts with eight random fact/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

3. At the end of your blogpost, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their name.

4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog.

Now, this one is almost similar to the first tag above, so there might be some repeats of the above.

Here goes...

1. I am sweet toothed person and love cakes, ice cream, and all types of desserts!

2. I like nature and must connect to the trees, rivers or forests at least once a week.

3. I like to watch clouds in the sky and daydream.

4. I enjoy watching horror movies and they must be really scary or I won't enjoy them.

5. I like to go karaoke although my singing is not good, though I'm never "pitchy".

6. I like to play the piano and can play for hours. I once played for 6 hours straight!

7. I cannot survive without my handphone when I'm outside my home. I will feel lost and handicapped.

8. I don't like bloggers who don't reply to my comments on their blog unless they have over 100 comments or they have a very demanding day time job. Bloggers who don't reply or respond to my comments after a few rounds can be quite certain that I will never leave my comments on their blogs again!

Well, that's it!

Now I would like to tag the following 8 people...

My Bug Life




Johnny Ong




As usual, if you don't want to respond to these tags, it's perfectly fine with me. But I would love to know your random habits and quirks about yourself. So maybe you would like to blog about that even if you don't plan to tag anyone.

    Hi Foong, thanks for the award AND thank you for doing the tag. It's nice to know a little bit about you.
    -You must be a good piano player. I took piano lessons for six years and was playing Chopin when I decided to stop. I blame 'teenage stubborness' for it. Now I wished I didn't. :o)
    - People in my old country also use SMS a lot. I still prefer to call and talk, probably because I am so slow at SMS. I remember when I was back in the Philippines, I was in a shopping mall and was trying to send a txt to my friend to ask her where she was. Well, after walking and trying to text at the same time, she found me first. LOL I guess once you get used to it and use it a lot, it's more convenient. Also, it's cheaper for me to call since it's free in my plan than send SMS.
    Btw Foong, it's my pleasure to drop on you! You're already on my bookmarks. :o)

    suituapui, haha! Hope to read about your quirks : )

    babette, what a pity you stopped your piano lessons. If not, we could do a piano duet together! : )
    I do realise that actually calling someone is cheaper than sending sms. Well, if there's a lot of things to say, I normally call, but otherwise I simply prefer to sms : )
    Wow! Thank you for including me in your bookmarks. I'm so honoured! OK, I will try my best to drop on you everyday : )

    Looks like we have a lot of things in common, like we both like MC, we are night owls and we prefer sms to calling.
