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 a very siginificant gesture…

Apparently, to accept this award, I must:
Post linking back to the person that gave you the award
Share 7 things about yourself
Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
Contact these bloggers and tell them about it

The seven things…
1. I love veggies, that is, the eating and the growing…
2. Photography is the hobby that has the longest hold on me… over 25 years now… and I intend to continue shooting…
3. I sleep early and wake up early…
4. I am not very fond of drinking alcohol… just a little bit, maybe…
5. My preferred mode of commuting is the bicycle… I take about 1hour 15 minutes one way to cycle the approximately 20 kilometer route to work…
6. I am still very much in love with my ‘suweeto haaato’ Y and I thank god and my lucky stars for my good fortune… we have no kids and we are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this coming April…
7. I would like to express my gratitute to all you nice folks out there who come to visit and comment on my humble blogs…

The 15 blogs, newly discovered or otherwise…
(For links to all the blogs, please see here)
1. Urutora No Hi
2. MyJourney
3. Photos by Senior Hiker
4. Foodie and Travel Bug

10. Photos by Senior Hiker
11. All Bout Food
12. Theanne and Baron
13. The Whimsical Gardener

I would like to offer all the folks above the option to (quietly) opt out of the game as I must honestly say that this is a very time consuming exercise… plus, some of the bloggers mentioned may already have been ‘awarded’ by someone else… so, please feel free to reject the ‘award’ as you wish it…

Oyasumi nasai (goodnight) from Japan, folks…

To thank you I will make a little icon, put in my side column and link it to your site…I would like others to be able to easily get to your most interesting blog. So happy about your wood stove and all the wonderful friends you've made while looking for sources for wood!

Yes, I am very happy with my suweeto haarto… the Potager 'Y' is dedicated to her and named in her honor…

  12. Hello! Loved hearing about your adventures with the wood stove…funny how simple actions bring about such big changes and chance meetings with new friends! Congratulations on 25 years…what a blessing! Finally, thank you for the honor of adding my blog to your 15…your encouragement is much appreciated. We are just returning from Colorado so will be posting my seven things within a few days. Can you advise on the best way to use the button in my post? Thanks Lrong!!

  13. Lrong says:

    rainfield61… you are most welcomed… The Whimsical Gardener… Hello from Japan! A pleasure to hear that you enjoy my 'adventures'… you said it well with regards to what the 'simple things' in life can do… thanks also for the message on our 25th year thingy… I am really blessed with a very good partner… am happy that you'd be sharing the seven things with us… As to the 'best way to use the button in your post', I am not so sure as to what buttons at this point, but I shall take a look for sure in a while…

  14. Hi Lrong, Your recent photographs are so beautiful! The soft quality of the lighting is very dreamy. I wasn't very clear in my question…I'm asking how you were able to use the "Stylish Blogger Award" image in your post? I'm not sure how to do that…

  15. Lrong says:

    Cat… the way I did it was to save the image in my storage device and then paste it in the post… hope this helps…

  16. Thanks for sharing so much about yourself…this is one award that lets us learn a bit more about one another. That is why I like it. Congratulations on the award and on your 25 years of happy wedded bliss.Rosie
