Melody
I hope everyone had a great weekend!

My husband and I had a busy weekend. We went to collect our airtickets from a travel agency on Saturday as we will be leaving for Perth, Australia tomorrow (Tuesday). Yesterday we spent the day cleaning the house and packing our luggage. We are already looking forward to the trip!

I will definitely miss visiting and reading everyone's blogs. I shall play catch-up next week. Meanwhile, have fun and happy reading!




Beth from Beth Fish Reads is one of my latest, favourite blog friends. I enjoy reading her reviews and I especially love reading her Weekly Discoveries posts whereby she list the books she discovered from fellow book bloggers, and the best part is some of the books she suggested ended up on my wishlist. Besides these, she has lots of other interesting stuff to share too. Do check out her blog if you have not done so.

Thank you, Beth!

And now for the award details:

This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his/her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary and personal values every day.

The rules to follow are:

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person that has granted the award and his or her blog link.

2) Pass the award to other 15 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment. Remember to contact each of them to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

I decided to borrow Beth's line because she has outlined every words I want to say ~ The following blogs are places I go pretty much every day. Each person has a unique outlook on life -- some make me laugh, some make me think, some share my reading tastes. All make my life online a rich and interesting experience.


Edit to Add:



I have another great surprise from Naida, The Bookworm when I visited her blog earlier and read that she has passed me with another award - The Well Worth Watching Blog Award!



This is for all those blogs you cannot wait to read every day, that you look forward to seeing updates on and that have inspired you in your own blogging. There are no rules for this one, but feel free to pass it on to whomever you feel deserves it!

Thank you so much, Naida! I feel so loved with these awards! I will pass this award to all my blogging friends on my blogroll as I think all their blogs are well worth reading! Thank you for visiting, but most importantly, for being my friends!
