Tokens of blogofriendship! (UPDATED)

Don't all those statuettes look lovely?

So, wearing a rock-the-red-carpet dress, behind the fancy lectern and glaring against the spotlight,

"Thank you Mitch, Gnetch and Alex!"

I started blogging all on my own.  I mean, I had no audience/listener/reader at all for quite some time. That was what blogging is all about.  Just express yourself. Period.  

Then, I happened to look around, and wow, it felt wonderful to read blogs with people actually reading them and see those lovely awards floating on  the sidebars or anywhere. 
As I started blogging again, a month ago or so, I realized -


They bring you to a whole new level of blogging experience.

So, if you are reading this from your dashboard following, or google reader, or whatever, the Beautiful Blog Award is for you! I hope you'd appreciate my way of appreciating you.  So, take it! (I'm saying it nicely.)

I want to retain the 'special-ness' of these awards but since they had been bouncing around the blogosphere, almost all of my lovely prospective awardees got one already.

So, I shall give the Sunshine Award to my would-be follower. He or she will add a ray to my sun. That would be Follower #39!

The Karate Award..goes to..


You guys made my mother's day post for my mom extra special.  For reading and commenting, thank you! You gave this year's day an extra kick!

I bought a cake, wrapped some lovely gift and most of all, brought her first and only grandson close for the weekend bonding. She gave me this lovely pair.

Would you believe these are made from water lily? Woven. I have lots of these pairs, sometimes made of abaca, and they are such comfortable wears!  All from my mother.

*Couldn't find her blog link..

UPDATE: The Sunshine Award goes to Yaya's Mommy!  Please take the statuette made of sunshine. Welcome aboard :-)
