Let's Do The Schmooze!

I was having second thoughts about writing this so soon after my last post on receiving the Blue Ribbon from the Blog Fairy. However, I’d really like to get to one particular blogger before someone else gets to him, so I decided to go ahead and announce my Power of Schmooze award from Mike!

This is my second much-appreciated award from dear Mike, the talented creator of Gummy, everybody's favourite green alien! Nowadays, you can also find Mike & Tish, busy working on a new wonderful project called BlogsWeLuv. When I first joined MBL several months back, it was Mike who stood out from the rest, offering his adorable smile and hand in friendship to me and this, I cherish until today! Undoubtedly one of the coolest bloggers here (did I mention that he’s also hot and single?) Mike amazes me with his talent and passion for drawing and comic writing - by far, one of the most outstanding yet.

Before I hand out the awards, 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. And that's why, after much contemplation, I've chosen these 5 great friends of mine to receive their own Power of Schmooze Award!

Adrian for being the wonderful friend that he is! This guy has shown me much warmth and love, always putting me at ease whenever I see his Homer avatar on my page. Lovable and very approachable, Adrian has definitely charmed me with his funny, witty, smart and ultra friendly ways. In fact, he has everything you appreciate in a trusted friend and a First Time Dad.

Janice, author of This Is A Miracle, for making my days more cheerful with her visits. Janice leaves me funny comments on my blog and lovely little messages just to check in with me and say hello. That makes me value her friendship even more.

Zubli for consistently reminding me of his charismatic existence with unique one-word greetings or half-page messages almost daily. Zubli, the Sweet Talker that easily charms his way into the hearts of the most beautiful of ladies in MBL, you can’t help wondering what his secret is!

Revellian, for his devotion and appreciation for women. Thanks for lending a helping hand, during the good and the bad. A wonderful friend and listener that does his best to keep me smiling, he has taught me, in more ways than one, the true meaning of trust and friendship.

Last but definitely not least, is one of my favourite bloggers, Mr. Sandman, author of Illusionaire. This is the blogger that I admire from afar. The fact that he shies away from publicity, always keeping a low-profile despite being a talented and friendly writer, keeps me intrigued. Even now, after getting to know him better, I can’t seem to get enough!

Congratulations to all 5 bloggers and thanks for making my blogging journey simply wonderful! Now it’s your turn to award 5 other bloggers with the Power of Schmooze Award!

I'm... speechless!!! I don't know what to say.... Thank you... thank you so much *tears filling up my eyes* ... First of all I'd like to thank my parents, for encouraging me and standing by me throughout my blogging career even when we didn't have anything to eat in the house. This goes out to you Ma, *muaah*. Next I would like to thank Jim, Tim and Sim, my best friends, who showed me that in this World there is no such thing as a blog post failure, and that every mistake we make is a stepping stone to a greater successful post. I would like to thank a very special person, my girlfriend lulu, for visiting my blog everyday, and for commenting "yes" to that new post of mine where I proposed marriage to her. I love you honey *muaaaah* Last but not the least, I would like to thank the Almighty Lord, for watching over me through all those nights and days of blogging and clicking on my own google ads. Thank you, I love you all. *Muaaah*
