Blog Awards (AND, Happy Things Meme)

I received a couple of blog awards in the last two weeks and haven't had the chance to post them until now. Be rest assured that I haven't forgotten them! I appreciate each and every one of those awards and I definitely appreciate your friendship. With that I also pass them on to YOU!

Monique of The Little Reading Nook presented me with the Butterfly Award. I have received this award numerous times and getting it one more time is great! Thanks, Monique. I'm glad to have you as a new blog friend.


Coming up next, my two good bloggie friends Julia and Melody, and another new Malaysian book blogger friend Natasha of Ulat Buku in the City presented me with the Premio Dardos Award.

This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his/her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary and personal values every day.


Last but not least, here's the Well Worth Watching Blog Award presented by Naida of The Bookworm.

This is for all those blogs you cannot wait to read every day, that you look forward to seeing updates on and that have inspired you in your own blogging. There are no rules for this one, but feel free to pass it on to whomever you feel deserves it!


I also think that it's timely to do the Happy Things Meme of which I was tagged by Jen of Up Close & Personal with LadyTink. I've played in December last year when I was tagged by iluvgreen with the following answers:

  1. Family
  2. Friends, including all my blogger friends
  3. Camera and photography
  4. Books and reading
  5. Internet and blogging
  6. Bed and sleeping

So I'm now giving you another six things that made me happy:

  1. My job and the work I do
  2. Coffee
  3. Cats as pets, but unfortunately hubby 'bans' furry four-legged animals in the house
  4. Daydreaming
  5. God and His beautiful creations
    Reading from page 137 of Dan Brown's Angels & Demons, I would like to quote the questions that Vittoria Vetra (beautiful physicist) asks Robert Langdon (world-renowned Harvard symbologist): "When you lie out under the stars, do you sense the divine? Do you feel in your gut that you are staring up at the work of God's hand?" I know I do, all the time.
  6. Food (and you wonder why I didn't mention this with all the food pics that I've taken)

If you're playing, please let me know and I'll go visit you. Have a wonderful weekend!
