Wonderful Weekend Award *


I woke up to a clean house yesterday afternoon. B had vacuumed, swept and cleared the dining-table that was piling up with bags and all the other clutter accumulated over the week. The kids were sleeping inside their condo and all the doors and windows were opened. It felt airy and fresh and after my sinus attack the previous day, it was indeed much appreciated. It's always nice to be pampered when I'm under the weather, so thank you so much love! I woke up smiling.
love

My good mood was further elevated when I visited my BFF Emila to find a beautiful and very meaningful award waiting for me at her blog!





I am truly honoured to receive this beautiful Premio Dardos Award from Emila, author of Emila's Illustrated Blog! To receive something this precious from someone so talented makes it all the more amazing for me. The meaning behind the award too is something I hold dearly in my blogging journey and to have it acknowledged by this wonderful recognition makes this the best award I've received for Wishing on a Falling Star this year. Thank you for choosing me as your recipient Emila!

“The Premio Dardos Award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.”

Since this is a very special award, I will play by the rules and select only 5 blogs which I truly feel deserve this award. I apologize for not being able to choose the other blogs that I love, but know that you're in my thoughts as well.

CONGRATULATIONS

Shemah,  March 15, 2009 2:00 AM

wooohooo!! :'( :'( :'(

Shemah,  March 15, 2009 2:03 AM

best kan emila.. you know the only issue i have with that movie?? the fact that frieda pinto exploded to become a hollywood celebrity overnight padahal her role in that movie was just THAT.

The children really made the movie what it was.. and Dev Patel tu.. but frieda pinto? hmm.. sikit je lah. LOL!

Shemah,  March 15, 2009 2:05 AM

Congratulations on the award Marzie!! and to your 5 recipients as well!! you all deserve it mucho mucho!! LOL! :* :* :-D :-D

exactly! i think the children were great actors!!! they did awesome job! and oh, remember when amitabh bachan came to visit? he jumped in the swamp of feces!

emila,  March 15, 2009 2:13 AM

dev patel really did a great acting too! and the brother is not bad too! freida tu sikit je part dia!

emila,  March 15, 2009 2:14 AM

nengok nengok nak jadi the next bond girl pulak!

emila,  March 15, 2009 2:14 AM

fc ler...

emila,  March 15, 2009 2:15 AM

yeah, congrats to all recipients!!! wohoo!! :* :* :*

Shemah,  March 15, 2009 2:18 AM

AMITABH BACHAAAAAN! LOL! I loooove that part!!
The children did more for the movie than any other actors. Now they're back at home, slightly improved condition.. and Frieda Pinto is somewhere in Paris for the Chanel Fall Fashion Show. hmmm.. something wrong somewhere..

yeahh.. dev patel and his brother tu, were at the heart of the movie. I agree. But itu lah.. with the amount of publicity she's receiving, you'd expect to see more of her. I was so shocked that she played such a minor part! when i saw the movie, i was like, you mean THAT's it?? (for frieda's part) hahahahaah

Monica,  March 15, 2009 2:21 AM

Congrats to the 5 recipients!! 8-)

emila,  March 15, 2009 2:43 AM

yea shemah, she's the talk of the net (or maybe prints? am so left out when it comes to prints!) lol! saw headlines, 'freida pinto: the next bond girl"

emila,  March 15, 2009 2:44 AM

i like how they found similar faces to fit in as the brothers. the casting director did a good job on that!

emila,  March 15, 2009 2:45 AM

it's raining season here too, ecl; well mostly at nights!

emila,  March 15, 2009 2:48 AM

totally! poor boys! but bollywood big boys didn't like the movie; they said it showed that bad side of Mumbai. But heck, that is the reality right?! This is what people needs to see, not some parts lari kejar2 dekat mountains with beautiful saree what not!

I pity those living in poverty...

emila,  March 15, 2009 2:51 AM

lj...mana awak? pi supper ke?

Shemah,  March 15, 2009 2:57 AM

oy vey.. next bond girl ah.. woww! she's so lucky lah.. especially for her less than 30 minute airtime on slumdog.

Shemah,  March 15, 2009 2:58 AM

a'ahh kan?? so similar.. there were 3 sets of brothers and they all looked alike! I heart those children!

Shemah,  March 15, 2009 2:59 AM

betul tu emila.. they malu kot bagi hollywood tengok that part of mumbai.. and exactly like you said lah.. that's reality. yang bergolek tak habis2 sambil having 5 changes of outfits all the way down the hill tu yang diorang nak portray kat hollywood kot?

Shemah,  March 15, 2009 3:00 AM

LJ baru datang chop at my blog! hehehe.. she's a superduper bz woman lah these days.. heheeheh..

emila,  March 15, 2009 3:01 AM

emila,  March 15, 2009 3:01 AM

that's why!

emila,  March 15, 2009 3:02 AM

emila,  March 15, 2009 3:03 AM

Shemah,  March 15, 2009 3:15 AM

hahahahah when you say that air liur meleleh, you remind me of my hubby, J, he likes to sing Sting's Desert Rose song with his modified lyrics.. "Air liuuurr.. meleleh leleh... " hahahaha..

Shemah,  March 15, 2009 3:15 AM

hahahaah.. a'ah.. tak sedar kite syok sendiri.. tup tup orang lain sumer tak tgk lagi.. uh oh..

Amylea is kinda lost kan? I don't see her true identity yet. But she's good! Esther is surprisingly great! I didn't expect much from her la but I could feel her emotions from her performances. Fify pulak, she has potential, but not my fave. What about that "mat rock 80an" Aweera? Comel la he! mesti mix Siam tu hehehehe...
I might, might, might write about Tomok on FC wahahahahahahahahaha mesti bnyk hits! Woohoo! Thanks Shem for the idea. ;)
