The Thinking Blogger Award...





Oooh...


Guess what? Raden Galoh has tagged me with the ahem, 'Thinking Blogger Award'...

She said:-

Daphne Ling: She scores my heart with her selfless efforts. She sees the trauma and difficulties of others beyond skin colors. She’s young, she is petite but she has a very BIG heart… I always think that if this country has so many people like her, we will reach VISION 2020 easily. Her humanitarian spirit is flaming with courage.


Wow...That means a lot to me (especially the petite part...Hehe)...

So, dear people, kindly allow me to beria sedikit: Honestly, it did come as a surprise, seeing that I've only had a public blog for slightly more than a month! All this while, it has been common knowledge that half the white and grey cells in my brain do not function...Kind of like people in some government departments, where they sit around just for show, with interesting pangkats, but really, they serve no real purpose...


You know, my dad suggested a long time ago that I try and learn my school-work through osmosis. But I have always argued that since the osmotic process involved water particles moving from the area with most water to the place with less water, my theory is that by the end of the day, I would have an even emptier brain than usual, thanks to all the water moving out of my head!


So yes, this is indeed an honour, especially if had I been tagged by someone else, I would have wanted to tag Raden Galoh! *Ish...Too late!*...


So, now, I am supposed to go tag another 5 people whom I think make me think (Oh dear, mouthful, isn't it?)...


So, I present to you:-


1) Renett Grove: Renett suffers from Spinal Muscular Atrophy, and spends most of her time working from her bed. Renett has two lovely dogs, Micky and Jackie (Oh my, so cute!)...What I really admire about her and her blog is that it reminds all of us to learn to look at the simple beauty around us, and that the most important thing is that we're alive...Drop her a line or two for encouragement, yea?


2) Jennifer Tai: I really like Jennifer's blog. Jenn was a former journalist (Aha! Maybe that's why...) and she now blogs about her life as a live-at-home mom. What I really admire is that she had no qualms giving up her career, and her blog gives us an insight into the little world of children, and her joys as a mother. It has made me think over and over again: What kind of mother would I be?


3) Zorro @ Bernard Khoo (Unmasked): Zorro...Where do I start? Well, I really like how he always takes up the most simple of issues and turns it into a complete comedy strip, but with very subtle messages and information. His postings are always funny, but always oozing with sarcasm too!


4) Hizami: Hizami, like me, is only 21 years old. But we believe in the same ideals for a better world. Like truth, justice, faith, hope and love, cliche as they are. His blog is among the few 'young people' blogs who talk about issues, as opposed to the ones who rant only about what their boyfriend/girlfriend did...


5) Jimi: Jimi is a great lover of books (like me!) and of movies...His blog revolves around the movies which he loves, but what I find to be special is that he doesn't blog solely on the special effects, the costumes etc, but on the messages that each and every movie carries: Messages which we can learn from and adopt into our lives.


Ok...I'm done! I really could not believe how difficult it was finding 5 blogs...Sheesh...


Anyway, there is a downside to being Memetag-ed...You now have to go find some other 5 blogs which you think are worthy of being tagged...


*Hmmm...Is this some nice way to make us 'tagged Bloggers' actually sit down and think?*

Now, this award was started here (by some person called Ilker Yoldas):


Should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging.

The participation rules are simple:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,

2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the

meme,

3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.


Please, remember to tag blogs with real merits, i.e. relative content, and above all - blogs that really get you thinking!
