Awards Galore 2.0


My beloved friends,

A happy and wonderful Sunday to you all! 🙂

It’s been two months and the feeling is ecstatic! I feel enormously blessed for all the encouragement and wonderful supports you all have given me. Thank you so much! 🙂

I am humbly thankful to all the blessings that have been poured onto me by some wonderful bloggers through 8 awards nominations.  Now I have received 10 Awards in total. Yes, I’m in Cloud Number Nine! 🙂

And the awards? Here goes:

1. One Lovely Blog Award

I was awarded One Lovely Blog Award by Mira Jay.  What?  You don’t know who this talented poet is? Check out her blog then; she writes wonderful poetry for your muse. 🙂

For this award, I would like to nominate the following Lovely Blogs:

Trust me, the owner of these blogs are lovely people. They write great stuff on various topics and their blog is definitely worth visiting. 🙂

2. Sunshine Award


Mira Jay, Cha,  and Steph have awarded me with Sunshine Award on 3 March 2012. If you  haven’t had a chance to get acquainted with these bloggers, please do at your earliest convenience. They write awesome stuff! 🙂

I was so happy with the award and I would like to spread the joy by nominating these wonderful and talented bloggers:

http://aljonpartz.wordpress.com/

Kellie is a publishing author, and in her own words, she is a “writer who knows no bounds”. Curious? Please visit her blog. What about Jigme , Jon, and Jennifer? Oh, they are talented young people who have great future lies before them. Check out their blog for some poetic amusement and day to day inspiration! 🙂

3. Very Inspiring Blog Award

It was an honor to be awarded Very Inspiring Blog Award by two wonderful bloggers, Steph and Jeannie. My friends, these two wonderful bloggers are full of positive energy. While the former dedicates her blog primarily for compiling great poetry and music, the latter is a source of inspiration to many. Visiting their blog has always been a joy to me, and I am sure you’ll find it too! 🙂

For this award, I would like to nominate two blogs that have inspired me a lot with their posts:

http://letsspreadcompassion.wordpress.com

http://zendictive.wordpress.com/

Reading posts in these blogs has been a truly magical experience for me. I learn a lot from the parables and insightful posts they both have made.

4. HUG Award

My  wonderful friend Celeste awarded me with HUG Award. The award, which is an acronym for Hope Unite Globally brings hope for much better cross-cultural understanding that spans globally and without borders.

There are two wonderful people that I’d like to nominate for this award. The first person is Sundeep Kullu http://www.sundeepkullu.com/. Sundeep has literally visited more than 50 countries in 6 continents over the last 5 years. If you’re keen on photography, Sundeep has got enormous collections of awe-inspiring photos of nature wonders for you to enjoy.

The second one is Janet http://janetnewenham.wordpress.com/. Janet has an absolutely wonderful blog to record all her traveling experience. Despite her young age, Janet has visited a lot of countries and she’s got a lot to share. You may find her stories quite amusing too! 🙂

5. Creative Chaos Award

My cute little sister, Hasie, has awarded me with Creative Chaos Award. Surprise, surprise! She’s not my sister by blood, but we’re just very close and get on really well. And we’re Indonesians.  In our culture, someone who is close to us, we consider them our family by calling them brother or sister. 🙂 If you haven’t been to Hasie’s sanctuaries, I highly recommend you do so. She’s got great stuff in www.kofegeek.wordpress.com and amazing art in: www.kofeart.wordpress.com.

To accept this award, you must:

1. Tell 3 completely weird things about your habits. If you claim to have no weird habits, you’re lying and we’ll have to send an investigative team for further analysis.

2. You must tell why you look at the “glass half full” scenario and ask “what? No coffee?”

3. Complete any one of the following essay questions:

A. You find yourself in a desolate place when your car breaks down. You have no cell phone service, no Walmart (I know, GASP, right?), and only a candy bar for food. It is 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your pants and why?

B. You find yourself having to ride an elevator quite frequently. How do you pass the time to show off your creativity?

4. Then you are to nominate 5 random people and let them know.

5. Make sure to show proper gratitude to the person who nominated you whether that is to shower them with gifts, prizes, and cash or to see that they are put into a clown costume and photographed for internet mocking.

6. Make sure to post the award somewhere.

My answers:

1. My wierd habits: 1) I like eating noodles for snack; 2) I like don’t really like chocolate; 3) I like eating bananas with spicy sauce. Weird? Wait until you go to Manado, North Sulawesi as people do this all the time. They call it Dabu-dabu. 🙂

2. “Glass half full” because it’s better than half empty. “Full” is always better than “empty”.

3. I would take a marker from my bag and  write, www.subhanzein.wordpress.com on the elevator.

And the people I would like to nominate for this award are:

http://marisancayuso.wordpress.com

http://katemcclafferty.wordpress.com

http://seewilliams.wordpress.com

God bless you! 🙂

  8. Congratulations Pak Subhan. You bring a fresh perspective to the blogging community and this is reflected in all the awards garnered and in such a short time 🙂

    All good wishes with your continued blogging, Eric

  9. Bung Subhan, many thanks for counting me in. The more I learn about blogging, the more interesting it is. No doubt, you are one of the most active players in this wonderful ‘world’.

    To other fellow bloggers, it is great to know you all (through Subhan:)). Let’s keep in touch and keep sharing to the world.

    Best,
    Adrian

    • Pleasure is mine, Mas Riyan! 🙂 I wouldn’t say myself ‘very active’, as I have teaching, studying, and writing engagements to do, so I normally only have an hour per day on average to do this. I’m just trying the best I can. That’s all.

      But for sure,yeah, let’s keep the motivation high and spread the joy! 🙂

      Subhan Zein

  10. Congrats Subhan… You really deserve it… A nice blog… Most inspiring is your spirit of enthusiasm, friendliness, optimism and positive energy 🙂 My best wishes for your soothing words to touch many lives like the much awaited rain.. My wishes for the most satisfying professional and personal life.. 🙂

  11. You forgot me, Subhan!! I nominated you for the Sunshine Award too!
    I’m so sad now (no, I’m kidding, don’t worry).
    Plus how could I be sad? You thought of me for the Versatile Blogger Award! And that’s really nice of you 🙂 Thank you so much.
    I’ve already been nominated for this one so I won’t pass it on again. But I really appreciate it. MERCI, Subhan!

    And CONGRATS on your nominations!
    (Love the video and Bryan Adams)

  12. Hey 🙂 Subhan
    FW>>>>From asoulwalker:

    I was thinking about getting a group of poets together and having someone pick a topic for all of us to write a poem about. I would then post all the poems on this blog. I think it might be interesting. Now if you are a writer but have not written much poetry (or any) this does not mean that you should not consider it. If anyone is interested leave a comment below.
