The Versatile Blogger Award and the Happy Blogger Award!

March has been a crazily busy month because of all the business travelings [Paris, Maastricht and Australia], which explains why I haven't gotten around to update my blog. But upon my feet touching down the ground of my home city Hong Kong, I receive this piece of GREAT NEWS!
A BIG thank you to my friend Carmen in New York, the beautiful new bride and the talented chef and blogger [check out her fab blog Carmen's Kitchen], for nominating me for two blogger awards - The Versatile Blogger Award and the Happy Blogger Award. This is a great recognition and an enormous encouragement for my enthusiasm for blogging! And I'm very grateful for everyone who has taken the time to check out my blog. 
From Carmen I have learnt that the Versatile Blogger Award is about introducing "different bloggers to each other and to promote quality blogs that awardees and their readers may not have discovered otherwise.
To accept the award, I have a set of rules to follow: 
Here are the rules for the Versatile Blog Award:
  1. Thank the person who gave you this award and Include a link to their blog.
  2. Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. 
  3. Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
  4. Tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself
  5. In the same post, include this set of rules
  6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs
To follow the rules, I hereby give my 15 nominations [some of the blogs are in Chinese language]:

1. Lam Kay of 每日一膠.荒謬的香港 - This is a commentary blog about the politics of Hong Kong and Greater China region. If you do not read Chinese, you can still click on the videos which are songs singing about Hong Kong politics and social conditions covering some of the best known Canto and Mando-pop tunes

2. Charles Mok of 可圈可點 - A blog from one of Hong Kong's best known IT figures, again, commenting on Hong Kong's social conditions, IT development trend, and politics

3. Hong Kong Fashion Geek - That's obvious I guess. I get my fashion info here. 

4. Teddy Ng of The Way I Think - My old friend and colleague, China correspondent at the South China Morning Post

5. Zoe Mak of Zoe is Blogging Now - The adventure of a pretty young mum in Canada - and she's all about leopard print

6. Jason Gagliardi of Two Countries, One Cistern - One of my most respected writers and journalists now resides in Bangkok 

7. Crystal of Crystal Food Cake




And now, the seven things about me...
  1. I am a very dedicated journalist who doesn't mind working around the clock - and I love it! 
  2. I grew up on an outlying island in Hong Kong called Cheung Chau, where there are virtually no cars and if you put a pair of good shoes on, people know that you are heading to the city.
  3. My favourite colours are pink, purple, green, red...basically all the bright colours
  4. My least favourite colour is orange - I can't stand it
  5. My favourite cocktail is Bellini
  6. I'm an expert in walking in high heels, but I trip if I wear flats
  7. I'm fluent in Chinese - Cantonese and Mandarin - and English, but I've always hoped to be able to master one more language if possible, and that 4th language will be French
Carmen has also nominated me for the Happy Blogger Award. This one comes as a surprise as I seem to sound quite grumpy and cynical on my blog but anyway, I still hope my writing can cheer people up. Thank you very much Carmen! 
From Carmen: "There are no specific rules for this award besides selecting 10 fellow bloggers and passing it onto them."
