Stylish Blogger Award… many thanks…

This photo-less post is simultaneously uploaded in my two blogs, Kedahan-Malaysian in Japan and http://potagery.blogspot.com/… the reason being, both these blogs were awarded the ‘Stylish Blogger Award’ by My Little Potted Garden and milka’s jishiben respectively…

Before I continue, a brief note…
These past few weeks came by and went off like a ‘whirlwind’…
We had our wood stove installed… and we are fully satisfied with the high standard of workmanship and professionalism of the people involved…
Through our new woodstove, we met so many people who were so kind, so friendly…
Experienced wood stove owners guided me on how to collect wood, how to fell a tree, and how to share out the cut logs…
The several folks in our hamlet who own forest land offered to allow me to cut their trees… to pick up wood that is of no use to them…
I bought a mini truck, a chain saw and many of the accessories…
Through the introduction of a friend, I knocked on the doors of three factories dealing with wood, asking if they have wood that needs to be disposed off…

Ok, now back to the award thingy…
I thank My Little Potted Garden and milka’s jishiben for being too gracious to award me the ‘Stylish Blogger Award’… Am very honored indeed…
At the same time, being the curious cat that I am, I did a check on the net to find what and who is behind this award…
There is not much information on this award…
Most of the folks who are selected for the award express happiness and that’s about it…
Still, as one blogger commented, it is an expression of ‘peer’ support among bloggers and I think that is very siginificant gesture…
Apparently, to accept this award, I must:

    1. First of all, congratulations on your awards and thank you for thinking of me. I enjoyed learning those seven things about you.It sounds as if your new stove has opened an interesting chapter in your life and has helped to introduce you to many new friends.

    2. lina… yes, 20 kilometers one way, and I love every minute of it… George… thanks for your kind comments… indeed, the wood stove marks a new chapter in our lives here in the little hamlet of Aji… IcyBC… thanks for your words…

    3. Theanne… biking to work allows me to observe some very nicely trimmed gardens along the way… I should be taking some pictures to post in the blog someday… thanks for your comments on the blue cutie and also this blog…

    4. Hi, Congratulations and thank you for accepting the award. And thank you too for commenting on my blog, otherwise I would not have found your lovely blog! Nice to know more about you. Congrats on the completion of you new woodstove too. Gong Xi Fa Cai! Do you celebrate Chinese New Year over there? Have a lovely day!

    5. kitchen flavours… thank you for all you did for my blogs… appreciate it a lot… likewise, I enjoy getting to know you through your blogs… we do not really celebrate CNY here… it is more like another day in February, and a rather cold one at that… Have a good day!

    6. Hi lrong…just to let u know that eventhough I'm quiet (both here and even in my own bolg) I didn't missed reading a single post of yours. That stove sounds so interesting.Anyway, the main reason I'm here is to let u know that I will be going the Iron Maiden concert in Singapore on coming Tuesday. 11 years after the talks that they will be performing in Singapore or Malaysia (but I doubt they can enter Bolehland). Ok, in case you've forgotten, you mentioned about you had served them in a flight and I was so ecstatic about that. That's why I must let you know this.And I just got to know that the lead singer Dickinson is a qualified commercial pilot, and he will fly his tour group himself!mama23beas

    7. mama23beas… I am sooo happy to hear from you again… thought I have 'lost' one good cyber friend… also, I am so touched knowing that you read each and everyone of my posts… about the wood stove, my missus is fast becoming quite an expert in controlling the fire… Iron Maiden!! Cannot forget the episode serving those guys in one of my flights… to know that the lead singer is piloting the whole group… wow, just amazing… and you are going for the concert? I am sooo envious… Enjoy my share too!

    8. Thanks very much for the award! I'll have to give the "game" some thought, as I haven't been blogging as often as I used to (as you've no doubt noticed). At the same time, I've been trying to look for reasons to wean myself back off of Facebook, so maybe this is a good excuse. 🙂

    9. MM… I am glad you are happy with this award… yes, I noticed that 'frequency' of your updates… I am guilty of it sometimes… take your time and think about the 'game' and please do not hesitate to say no…

    Thank you for visiting!
