I think internet is one of the most wonderful inventions, because it brings the world so much closer. Because of this wonderful invention, I get to know a lot of friends through the internet.

I think it was 1997 (or is it 1998?) that I first began exploring ICQ. At that time, it was very popular and of course I was hooked to it. It was during that time that I get to know Jennifer (By the way, she's from America). We will 'chat' online and throughout the years when the ICQ trend fades away, we continue to 'chat' through snail mails and/or emails. I am most touched when she flew over to visit us in 2006 for her honeymoon. She is now my best friend (we even treat each other as part of the family, and that shows how close we are).

I guess I have carried away with my ramblings, but I'm just trying to emphasize how wonderful internet can be because you don't have to travel to know more friends. And due to this, I also get to know several wonderful friends through blogging.

Now I want to thank Alice for giving me the Nice Matters Award. She is one of the sweetest bloggers/friends I met through blogging and I am very glad to know her. Thank you, Alice!

And that's not the end of it, I have also received a Thoughtful Blogger Award from Kristy. What a double sweet surprise all in one morning! Thank you so much, Kristy!

Before I end this post, I would like to give these two awards to Jennifer, Julia, Alice, Wendy, Kristy and Kathy!

Thank you, my dear friends! You ladies rock!

    Hey Julia, you're welcome! :D

    I remember we first knew each other through Lori's forum. And if I'm not wrong, I think you ask something on the forum and I replied to you. From then on, we are friends. ;) I treasure our friendship, thanks for being my friend. :)

    Oh Meeeel....oh...deee... (Melody) -- actually that's how I always imagine myself calling you. LOLOL.

    You so deserve the double award, girl (we're all GIRLS today!).

    I'm blushing with pride and happiness when I read the way you describe me. I so thank the Almighty for introducing such a lovely friend to me. We've known each other for how long?... 6 months perhaps?...
