Blog Awards

“Blog of the Year 2012” Award Goes To…


(Click to be taken straight to the nominees, skipping my ramblings! LOL)

It’s the weekend and I woke up rather bright and happy today! I read somewhere that December is the only month of the year that really gives you that ‘Friday’ or ‘weekend’ feeling every single day. I can only nod and agree to that. Why sulk, when you can be merry, ei?
I finally decided to halt my mind from thinking so far in advance in terms of blog post ideas or events, and took my sweet time to write this special post, as I call it.
Blog awards are your instant ‘pay it forward’ gesture, a simple way of saying – I love your blog, I can’t get enough of it, I always end up there regardless of where I’ve been, and  basically, I look forward to your posts... just to name a few. And this particular one, ‘Blog of Year 2012’ Award just stands out and I could not wait to share this with everyone. You get to collect a star every time someone include you in their nomination, until you complete six stars for this year! How cool is that?? I feel like I’m back at school again, so eager to win a star! haha.
I just think this idea for this award is amazing and I’m totally in that motivated mood! Thank you Nizy, Rica and Seeta for remembering me and my blog for this award. I can’t thank you enough and I feel so deeply moved and honoured. So this little bean blog has gained 3 stars so far! Would I make it to six? You never know.*wink *wink  🙂
Now, if I ever missed anyone, it could be that I had my ‘senile’ moments while writing this (at 1am) and unintentionally missed your blog! For that, I do apologise. Feel free to give me a nudge, and I’m more than happy to add you!

So the rules are pretty simple which I’ve pasted below along with the banners you can grab. Please make sure to follow.
Now it’s my turn to pass this award to all the blogs that really deserve this, blogs I stalk, and bloggers that I feel that are too precious to keep for myself! Well, I could, but that would be selfish hehe.
Keep smiling. Keep shining. Stay inspirational.
