me no think but me like award

Thankyou Lollies, for awarding me with the Thinking Blog Award, which originated from here.

I think it's just a really sneaky way of tagging someone by disguising it as an 'award', but hey I've never won an award before, so what the hey. I like!!!
*rubs hands in glee*

So in the spirit of spreading the love, coz that's the theme for this blog, toasting our life and spreading the sweetness, I am passing the baton to these 5 folks (in no particular order):

1. Kimmi the Lamma Lady
Anybody who has ever read Kimmi would agree with me that she is an extraordinary woman with extraordinary love. She has gone through alot in her life, but she still keeps on going with a smile on her face and a skip in her step and her joy is just infectous. She is a lover of animals and her dedication in breeding sheep-dogs is just so admirable. I don't know whether I could ever have her level of patience.
When I read her posts on her husband, it makes me think about whether I could ever do the same to mine. She truly inspires me with her sincere and undying love for her other half.
She is truly a testament to how the human spirit can survive with the right attitude.

2. Ben the Bushwacker
Ben (I am so used to calling her this, I can't bring myself to call her by her real name), is a person who makes me think about how I write. Her style is effortless, with a side order of sarcasm and humour. Her posts really challenges your intelligence. Even her "I'm listening to:" sections are funny.
She used to work with a local newspaper and is a stickler for puctuations and stuff, so sometimes I check my apostrophees and spelling and make sure I have enough dots in my ellipses just coz i think she might read me, but at other times, i couldnt be bothered. tee hee.
She is an extremely cool mum who currently misses her only son who's gone off to college. Reading about how well-rounded person her son has turned out has inspired me to raise my kids as best as I could with as much love as I could.

3. Tony the c0ndom supplier
HA HA HA. (You'd have to go scour thru his posts to understand the joke)
Tony, is my british politics commentator. He doesnt do much of it nowadays, but he used to, alot. He gives the man-on-the street point of views on things happening in his neighborhood and around the world. I really like the way he looks at things. He is very rational and makes a lot of sense.
Aside from that he also has a lot of bizzare stories that he can tell. Like the time he met Stephen Fry. It was so surreal I actualy thought he was lying. Did you know that Tony spent a few months in a coma?
His posts make me believe that everyone's life is interesting if you tell it the right way. I can even make my life sound interesting if I tried!

4. The Ghost Writer
The ghostwriter has been down in the dumps these past few days. (Do drop by his blog and cheer him up). Prolly because his employers are squeezing every drop of blood, sweat and tears from him, which required him to take redbulls intravenously, and to top it all off, it looks like his monkeys have run away.
He thinks he's a freak, but underneath that freakiness, he's actually a very very talented and imaginative writer. His earlier works (on modblog, i don't know whether he managed to transfer them to efx2) really amazed me, for I never knew such talent existed in my home country. . His writings are nothing like you've read before. It's fantasy, it's humor, it's animated feature material. Everytime I read his work, I can always imagine what it'd look like, on graphic novel panels or on the screen.
Pizzo is my anime guru and link provider. He actually introduced me to other talented writers like him. He had opened up the internet for me, introducing me to his many interesting haunts. And you better believe that he haunts quite many places. Even the famous Dina Zaman knows him.
His posts makes me think about what is possible. What stories are possible if you really push the boundaries. What achievements are possible if you really go for it.
My only wish is to meet him in person and shake his hand one day, for I see a bright future in him.

5. Nadia the nut cracker
Nadia makes me reminisce my younger days. When I read her posts, I often wish I was young again and wish that I had done things that she's doing right now. Who wouldnt want to kickbox, juggle and play the guitar? She's gonna make a kid be so proud to have such a cool mommy one day.
Her posts, though she may think is mundane, actually reveals a lot of heart. Sometimes you see glimpses of a person who are wiser than her age.
Like Pizzo, Nutty Nadia makes me think of the bright possibilities in the future of Malaysia.

Now Kimmi, Ben, Tony, Pizzo and Nutty, should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. The participation rules are simple:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think;
