Seven Friendship Awards

Friendship Awards, Tags and Meme are common stuff in blogging. Unlike chain letters, these things are more personal and usually associated with that purpose of wanting to learn more things about the receiver. This blog is no stranger in receiving these tags, meme and friendship awards. I often apologize to the sender for not doing their tags sooner and for breaking the chains of awards. So to make-up for those long lost times, I am making this special post on the awards given to me and this is the proper time also to pass these awards to the blogs I admire and to the friends I have met along the way.

Kick-Ass Blogger Award was given to me by Fishing Guy. The rules of this award are to choose 5 bloggers that you feel are “Kick Ass Bloggers”. Let them know in your post, via email or blog comments that they’ve received an award. They are supposed to share the love and link back to the person who awarded them. The 5 bloggers I chose to have this award are:

1. Abou - a whimsical and entertaining blog.
2. BW's A Warped Zone - a laid back but clever proverbial tale of a Filipino abroad.
3. Coldman's Anukayayun - a funny take on anything under the sun with great travel photos.
4. King Daddy Rich - a comic, hip and young blog.
5. Mang Badoy - this blog offers jokes coming from a serious guy.

Must See Blog Award was given to me by Alice of Singapore. This award was created for blogs that cannot be missed.
Whether you secretly lurk, always comment, or frequently check in to see what’s new, these are blogs that must be tuned into regularly. I want to pass this award to:

1. Fishing Guy - his photos and stories will definitely make your day.
2. Anino's Mga Hiwaga ng Kasaysayan - very amusing stories that will keep you at the edge of your seat.
3. Luna Miranda - amazing blog with lots of travels, photos and lovely stories.
4. Redlan's Web of Art - very creative blogger and you will love his personal style of writing.
5. Shades - great photography coming from the heart.

This is another award given to me by Fishing Guy. The Blogger Award for Amazing Friendship is a unique award because the feature of this award is to develop friendship. This award is for bloggers who give joy in our everyday life either thru their beautiful posts or comments they made on your blog. Is there someone who has visited frequently and writes a comment on your work, if so you can give them an award. Take a look through each one and enjoy their sites. I am giving this award to:

1. Acey's Tralala - a talented young lady
2. Alice - she will keep you amazed not only about Singapore but on her views and experiences as well.
3. Belen - i love her, reading her blog is like reading your mom's thoughts.
4. Doc Rio - not just a diary of a dentist but of a sweet lady looking for true love.
5. Shionge - a personal blog full of lovely posts, stories and pics.

Brilliant Weblog Award was given to me by Alice of Singapore and the rules says it shall be given to Bloggers who write very well or take very good photos. I don't know if I deserve this but I am pleased she appreciated my blog and visit it often. I pass this award to the following:

1. Daniel J. Santos - amazing photographer from Portugal.
2. Digital Polaroids - you will learn a lot from this Argentinian photo blogger.
3. Lionheart - a nursing student who likes adventures a lot.
4. Luke Wiley - this magnificent photographer is only 17 years old.
5. Selerines - a blogger from India who writes about interesting topics.

Redlan gave me this PERFECT BLEND OF FRIENDSHIP AWARD, This is given to 3 kinds of FRIENDS:(1)Friends of your own age whom you can talk over your problems, plans and goals with confidence. (2)Friends older than you to whom you can confide and be assured of wise counsel. (3)Friends younger than you whom you can share your life's experiences. I want to pass this award to my new found friends namely:

1. Arabian Josh - you will enjoy this expat's journeys and life experiences.
2. Em of Bato-bato Pik - a very warm-hearted blogger.
3. Beero - one of the few bloggers in my friendster account.
4. Cedeux - a doctor-to-be and an amazing writer.
5. Dakilang Islander - a wanderlust in a beautiful foreign island.

The Five Star Blog Award was given to me by Vanessa. Although I do not know the rule of this award, I suppose that it will be given to blogs whom I consider as 5-Star (ala-5-Star Hotel). So i am passing this award to the following 5-star bloggers:

1. Aethen - watch out for this achiever, this young man will go places.
2. Aline - her blog knows the best places to eat. very informative.
3. Ash - definitely one of the best photoblogger UK can offer.
4. Kris Jasper Van Dyke - trendy, hip somewhat jocular pinoy blogger in London.
5. Vanny - you just want to cuddle and protect this fragile IT blogger.

THE AMAZING BLOGGER AWARD is my own brainchild and this is to be given to bloggers whom the giver thinks excel in their category - be it travel, photography, sports, personal, IT or any other categories. And since I am a traveler and a photo blogger, I would like to give this award to 10 of the best travel-photo bloggers that I have been visiting since I started blogging. So, I am giving this award to the following:

1. Ferdz' En Route - this blog is one of my all-time favorite and way, way up there. great photos and great way of telling stories as if you are traveling with him.
2. Oggie's Lagal[og] - this blogger is very humble yet he has achieved so much. his photos will keep you mesmerized.
3. Dong Ho's Nightscape and Lakbay Pinoy - one of the best travel and photo blogs around with insightful stories about people as well.
4. Allan's Lantaw - an amazing blogger who takes sharp and admirable landscapes of the beauty of the Philippines.
5. Carlo's Ar-We-Der-Yet - a fun traveler and an astounding writer taking you places in the Philippines and Asia.
6. Estan's Ang Langyaw - this guy is a machine, his extensive travel around the Philippines will definitely amaze you. one of the best blogs i have ever seen.
7. Ang Anino ni Abaniko - a jack-of-all trades. photographer, traveler, sportsman and more.
8. Tutubi's Backpacking Philippines and Asia - one of the best blog when it comes to tips on traveling around the Philippines and Asia.
9. Traveler on Foot - a very detailed journal of a Pinoy traveler.
10. The Islander - a blogger from Surigao going coast to coast from the rivers to the boondocks.

And speaking of AWARDS, the 2nd Philippine Blog Awards will be held on September 21, 2008 at One Esplanade located at Bay Boulevard near Mall of Asia.
