Next week, will you come soon?

I can’t wait to sit down on a lazy afternoon, surfing leisurely, reading, laughing, tearing (yes, it happens!) or drooling over my favourite blogs, and i definitely can’t wait to get my hands on baking and cooking again! I’ve been running around like a madwoman ever since the school holiday started. Scheduling 2 holidays, albeit  short ones, can be a little taxing, especially when both breaks involved the entire clan (read : 3 little dudes)!

Truth be told, had i not been one of the finalists for the Singapore Blog Awards 2011, perhaps.. i might not feel this way. Shortly after our return from Sarawak, i got to know about the good news from Ellena, Cuisine Paradise — she’s one of the finalists in my category too, a fabulous baker and cook, do vote for her as well (!),  who tweeted us the congratulatory tweet.

By the time i settled down comfortably, everyone (the finalists) i know of had already blogged, tweeted, facebook-ed, rallying for votes. Because this whole experience is rather new to me, i felt a little paiseh to canvas for votes. Haha! Bizarre i know but i’m really quite strange like that! In the end, i still couldn’t quite go about doing it and by then, it was time for break no.2, which happened 2 days later!

Right before break no.2, i received a mass email from the organizer asking to prepare ourselves a rally speech for a video interviews at News Centre. Of course i couldn’t go, and the next option was to send a short video of myself which i couldn’t as well, because i had no access to Internet at where i was! Waaahh, you simply can’t imagine my anxiety then as the deadline for submission drew nearer. My last option was to do a rally post on the blog, which i, or rather, my right-hand man, did — Please say you noticed the difference in our writings! I had no choice but to summon Darcy to do it for me, which i had edited a teeny weeny bit to make it more me. Darcy’s writing was too kayu laahhh. Heh!

Since last week, i had stuck many many many collagen masks onto the face to thicken the skin a little, so here i am, canvassing votes for myself for the very first time! Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Right, so….

Please vote for me! ;)

I’m very pleased to know that my effort and hours put in for this blog are being appreciated. It makes me go… awwwwww…. followed by a smile so happy that you can barely see my iris! Haha! If you know me personally, you’ll know that is almost impossible because me is got big eyes, for Chinese standard that is! Of course, i didn’t start this blog for all this so-called reward or recognition.

I blog because i love. I blog because i enjoy. I blog because i like. And I blog because i wanna remember.

But along the way, if the efforts are being recognized, i’d say, bring it on!

Though it might seem a little impossible to emerge as the winner with so many big names and talents, together with 2 past winners in the same category, i’ll just hope for the best. So long i have given my all, i’ll have no regrets. Errrr, not all (Twitter and Facebook) yet as for now… but by tomorrow night i will!

    Came to your blog via Yann’s blog! Congrats on your blog nomination! Likewise, it’s my first time getting nominated as 1 of the finalist for best lifestyle blog and i couldn’t been more honoured. Although, i must admit that it feels really uncomfortable for me to rally for votes because frankly, i never quite fancy such popularity contest! 1 of my fav blogger (also nominated in the same category) gave me a really good piece of advice to enjoy the moment but not get sucked into the competition and it’s been a motto that i’ve been following :)

    Anyway, congrats again on your nomination and hopefully, i’ll get to see u for the dinner this weds at 1 rochester! :) good luck!
