Will You Vote For Me?

Guess where did I spend my Valentine's Day?

Well, let me tell you. I spent it in bed.

No, not with my date if that's what you think!

I was down with flu and sore throat and a slight fever. So I spent my Valentine's Day in bed all alone and sick! Boo hoo!

I just read this post by Relax the other day about what to do when sick and I even added my own comments to his post. Haha! So clever of me - talk only, but don't even follow my own advice! I hate the flu and I have always hated it since childhood. When will medical science find a cure for this annoying sickness? I hope one day, we can destroy viruses at the click of a button!

Anyway, here's some good news, at least for me. I was nominated for the Malaysian Blog Awards 2009 Contest. Yippee! First time in my life get nominated for awards! Looks like my all my effort working on this blog finally get recognised.

Briefly, this contest is created by a Penang blogger to award blogs or websites which have at least 80% Malaysian content. The contest will end on 31st December 2009 and the results announced in January 2010. Votes will be accumulated until the closing date and the blog with the highest amount of votes win the award. Voters are allowed to vote once only. For more information, please click here.

So will you vote for me? I hope you do 'cos whether I win or not depends on you, my readers! Please vote for me by clicking on the Malaysian Blog Award badge on the right tab of my blog, or clicking here. You only need to take 1 minute to fill up a form. That's it!

Please let me know once you have voted for me by leaving a comment. Thank you all!

NOTE: If you find the voting site confusing, don't worry. Just scroll all the way down to the form, fill it up with your details and enter my blog's name and URL in the last box.

    Wow, congrats for this nomination Foong! I'll surely vote for you.
    Btw, what a bad day to be in bed with the flu? So does that mean you're going to have a late Valentine's day celebration? LOL

    Popped over to have a look. Gee! The English is pretty bad - "Voters voter now!" for instance. Looks like a ploy to increase traffic to own blog.....

    Flu is powerful. It attacks many fit runners and I also kena despite doing Qigong for 2 years already.

    Good luck in winning the award :)

    BTW, I merged some of your comments to my blog posts.

    medie007, thank you! Did you vote for me or not? : )

    cashmere, don't worry. I've asked the organiser of this award to make some changes so people will understand better. Anyway, all you need to do is just fill up the form with your details and remember to write my blog's name and URL in the last box. Thanks! : )

    leo, yes sorry for the not so good English on that voting site! You must understand English is not our mother tongue!

    Anyway, I've asked the award organiser to improve it.

    All you need to do is just fill up the form with your details and remember to write my blog's name and URL in the last box. Thanks! : )

    suituapui, my flu is not caused by depression but by flu viruses! Haha!

    I've asked the organiser of the award to improve on the voting site so readers can understand better.

    If you wish to vote for me (and I hope you will) just fill up the form with your details and remember to include my blog's name and URL on the last box. Thanks! : )

  22. foongpc said...

    babette, thanks for voting for me! It's really bad timing with this flu!

    But no worries, cos I never celebrate Valentine's Day on the day itself. Everything's too expensive on this day, and restaurants are packed to the brim!

    Better celebrate on another day. Anyway, everyday is Valentine's Day for me : )

    What will you get if you win this award?

    BTW, if you want my vote, please go to travel around Malaysia, take tons of pictures and tell us your stories here. From what I can see, your blog is mainly about yourself and fengshui. I think it doesn't meet the 80% Malaysian contents requirement.

    The vote will end in the end of this year so there is still plenty of time.

    February 16, 2009 at 8:53 AM
  30. khengsiong said...

    Oh yah... suggest that you create another website with 100% Malaysian contents. This one reserved for your personal stories.

    February 16, 2009 at 8:57 AM
  31. eiling lim said...

    The website is so confusing. But anyways, i filled in the form and put in your blog name.

    February 16, 2009 at 9:29 AM
  32. foongpc said...

    leo, thanks for voting me! : )

    khengsiong, I was nominated by the organizer herself, so I have no say in whether I'm qualified or not. I'm not going to change about what I want to blog just to qualify for this nomination since this is my personal blog. Maybe you can write to the organizer and let her know my blog is not qualified based on her requirements of 80% Malaysian content : )

    eiling, yeah somewhat confusing and I've told the organizer of this award. Thanks for voting me! : )

    Congrats foong for getting this nomination. I enjoy your blog & have no hesitation in voting for you. I must admit it's quite confusing to vote though.

    On the last box I wrote your blog's name but without the URL. Does that count?

    Anyway, I hope you get the award. Get well soon ;)
