Award and Romance

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm thrilled to announce that on January 28th, my humble blog was presented with the "You Make My Day Award" by gorgeous peeps from Atlanta GA, AsianCajuns. Thanks, Catherine and Lauren! Woohoo! The first one ever!

This is how it works. I have to pass on this award to 10 people whose blogs bring me happiness and inspiration and make me feel happy about blogland. Comments shall be left on their blogs so they can pass it on. This is what the sweetums had to say about me:

Heart and Soul: For living it up in Malaysia with style.

OK, when I started this blog in August last year, I started off fulfilling my own promise that I'd start to write and/or let my thoughts be known. Prior to that, and oh so typical of me, it was just an idea I'd stored at the back of my head which wagged and nagged for a year. I didn't categorize my blog and decided that I'd write about anything that strikes my fancy. I do love fashion and lifestyle, so maybe a good chunk of this blog consist of them. HOWEVER, I'm not an expert on those two subjects, and I purposely don't pose for photos in full glory (of fashion sense) as I want to leave that to others who do it so much better. Let's just say I'll let my closet and its contents to my own torturous view. So let's get a move on...

Tomorrow's the last day of Janvier. I generally hate this month because things seem to take a backseat, but anyhow, I'll welcome Fevrier with open arms. It's my parents' wedding anniversary, so this month holds dear to my heart. February 10th 1972 was the day my dearest mom accepted my dad to be his life companion. Ahhh... that young bride... I'd have loved to post a pic or two of her looking so chic in three different gowns, each complete with three different length gloves. I remember cheekily making fun of that but my dad was very defensive of her bride. Ouch! Anyways, my parents live in a different state, so I've no access to their wedding pictures.

And the icing on top of the cake, for the lovebirds, women and men alike, Valentine's Day. My husband and I don't celebrate it as we believe that love should be celebrated everyday but I do love watching other couples this day. The only thing I hate about this day is how commercialized it has become, dinner becomes ridiculously pricey and man, the price for a stalk of rose skyrockets to 20 bucks? Sheesh! Thank goodness I'm a lily girl, which doesn't help either as flowers generally become too expensive for the week of Valentine's. So thankfully, I don't celebrate.

It's fantastic, huh? Yeah, for people IN love, that is! For those, er, luckier ones with more liberty, what are you doing on Valentine's Day? Turn your cheeks away on PDA (yes that PDA, not your cellphone for goodness sakes), roll your eyes at yet another couple doe-eyed and cooing into each others ears? No, you don't, you let them be or you curse under your breath! Here's an idea, group your girlfriends for a round of clothes swapping!

Now that's what I call satisfaction!

But I just have to share this with y'all. Truely, utterly, absolutely romantique.

Awww....

Cherish love forever, guys.

As for the award, I've decided to do it in stages, tonight it'll be:

Lynn, you're too sweet!

I agree that Valentine's Day has become way too commercialized. Usually my boyfriend and I don't celebrate it too much for the same reason as you and your hubby.

Lynn said...

Wendy and Ruby, you're my gurlz! LOve you both!

ACs, a quiet dinner on the patio/balcony is waaaayyy more romantic, huh? Thanks for the award, you're the greatest!

Aisha said...

Hi there!!!

^^

WendyB said...

Hi Lynn. I have no idea why pix seem to automatically pop up on Blogger. I see that they don't for you, so I'm going to check my settings. Usually, I don't want mine to enlarge. I don't need to give away a how-to for the jewelry designs and I don't want people studying me under hi-res!

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

hahha don't worry I still have another few years!

Aisha said...
