Yesterday, Monday 25th, was the last Monday in this month. I was glad that Monday blues didn't set in and I must say that my week kicked off so nicely!
For half day, I was attending a seminar on "Integrity". Its contents touched on enculturation of integrity in Malaysian society. A very refreshing and insightful seminar as well as useful for those in the administration side. There were so many inputs.
Blogging wise, yesterday came another surprise from my Brazilian friend, Ana Luiza. She picked me among her 6 bloggers' friends to receive "The Reader Appreciation Award". I looked admiringly at the award and felt proud to see the 3 medals in it, from gold to bronze! Have I conquered all 3?
To Ana, muito abrigado, and please let me quote what you said in response to my comments at your blog.
Ana said :
It's hard to understand why we connect more to one person and not to another in the virtual world. But it happens. :)

I find it inspiring and what she said, in general, holds much truths. In the virtual world, most of the times we are communicating and most of us haven't seen or met our friends in persons. But in one way or another, it's really amazing that we could click so well. I am making some assumptions and it could be due to the following reasons :
- good communication
- very supportive of each other
- understanding each others' needs in blogging
- sharing some common interests
It could be more than that. Thinking of the award again, I feel like going to the dance floor for samba!
On another note, my multi-talented friend, Maria of UK, emailed me the original recipe of "Chocolate Cake." She took all the trouble to send me the recipe without alcohol in the ingredients. For those of you who haven't known much about me, I can't take alcohol.
Ok friends, this is how the award looks like. It's the 8th one.
Now, it's my duty to award it to 6 more persons and it's my pleasure to do so for the following beloved bloggers' friends of mine :
1. Maria - Inside Looking Out
2. Krislin - Tingtasy
3. Stephaine - Bitter Sweet Life Of A Single Mom
4. Simple Sie - A Life's Journey
5. LiLing - Shadows Overhead
6. Dai Ning Li - Unravelled Solace
To my friends, you are to award it to 6 more persons to keep the circle growing. Actually, I'd love to award more friends but I have to abide the condition. This time, it's mainly for ladies. Guys, you'll have your turn. :)
As a sign of appreciation, once again I would like to say :
Muito abrigado to Ana,
A big thank you to Maria,
Terima kasih to my fellow Malaysians
Thank You, right from the bottom of my heart, to each and everyone of you for your much appreciated visits. Keep coming! :)
