A nomination from The English Cottage

It has been more than a week now since I last posted. I had thought the slower pace of the fasting month would allow me time to post more stories in this blog but surprisingly, it has been a very busy week. I traveled up and down to Kuala Lumpur twice in the last 10 days. Last weekend we had our breaking of fast at a sister-in-law's home in Kota Tinggi. Plus the working week was filled with meetings and site visits.

I did not have much time to update or even blog-hop. So I was pleasantly surprised when blogger-friend Patricia of The English Cottage nominated me for an award. You can read what Pat wrote about this blog in her post -> here.

I'm flattered, Pat. But thanks anyway. Here are some orchid flowers for you.

I created this blog primarily as an avenue to sharpen my writing and story-telling skills. It's a very modest journal on personal experiences mostly. It also gives me the chance to meet other writers in blogosphere. Along the way, I get to be friends with readers, commenters and other fellow bloggers... and this is a good thing. Thanks to all of you for dropping by and having something to say about what I write. Most appreciated. I truly hope that we'll be able to meet in real life, one day.

Sorry about the break in updates this last week. Will hope to squeeze some time from the busy schedule and be telling more stories soon.

Thank you for the orchids, Fadhil, you shouldn't have! hahahaha

I think you will get extra pahala for carrying on with your life, as usual, even during the fast? Am I right? I think that is what it was meant to teach you? What it would be like to have so little, and yet have to carry on with life? Dunno lah, but I think that's what my muslim friend taught me.

Anyways, you were most welcome. I hope many discover your blog. It is a great place to unwind, and forget about all the drama-politico around us.

Hi Pat,

You're right. Fasting is not simply abstaining from food and drink during daylight hours. It is much more than that.

I'm glad that you like to come by my blog. I hope others enjoy what I write too...
