It was a pleasant surprise when I saw my email, from Jean leaving me a message in mybloglog - 'hi, congratz! :) pls come collect your award ...' I was 'eh?' what award? So I went over to her blog to take a look and found that I was awarded the Schmooze award! LOL... What's that?? I have no idea as well...
According to Marzie, Schmoozing is "the natural ability to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection. Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.
Gees... I don't think I really deserve it. True that I don't limit my visits to the rich and famous or notorious (LOL!), but I do sometimes just say 'hi!' when I drop by some blogs! But but, don't even dream of taking the award back Jean! It's mine it's mine! Hahaha *evil laughter*... But thanks Jean for giving me the award! I will certainly work towards attaining the standards of the award!
Now, to pass on the award... must find someone who really deserve it, and fits the awards definition....Drum roll pls!!...
The first recipient goes to MonkeyWong!! A very talented cartoonist that never fails to bring a smile with his cartoons.
The second recipient goes to CheeHsien!! Hsien is from Penang, and is extremely active in Penang's blogger community, engaging himself in all sorts of fun, and an addict to his Penang Shout-outs!
The third recipient is ChillyCrap! Someone pls hand me a hammer to hammer this crab? The shell is so hard! LOL... This most entertaining pingster crab might prove too much to handle for the mere human with all his crap, and frequent shouts in the ping community.
Last but not the least, like to award this Schmooze award back to Jean!! She's a great blogger, one that really interacts with her readers, contributes greatly to the blogging community e.g. her AGP quilt and helping readers to connect to each other viral icons etc... keep up the good work Jean!
Congrads to all those who got the awards! U truly deserved it!! =)
