Awards Galore 3.0


Hello my friends,

In Indonesia we have the proverb, “Jadilah engkau seperti padi. Makin berisi, makin merunduk“. The proverb  means “Be like rice plant. The more it grows, the more it bends”.

Well, of course you all know what that translates into our life. We need to adopt a rice plant philosophy: the more knowledgeable, powerful, or well-off we are, the more humble we need to be.

But I am most certain that I am not knowledgeable, powerful, or even well-off.

I am just a man who’s striving to adopt the rice plant philosophy into his life.

Therefore I am humbly grateful for all the blessings that the blogging community have been pouring out onto me during my four month blogging experience. In the past eight weeks there are wonderful, lovely, gorgeous fellow bloggers who have awarded me with various awards. From the deepest of my heart, I would like to thank you all. 🙂

Similar to my previous posts on the same topic: Awards Galore 1.0 and Awards Galore 2.0 here I would like to pay homage to these fantastic people and spread the joy to others. Here’s the list of the awards:

*

*

1. One Lovely Blog Award

I was awarded this award by Jenny:  http://jennysserendipity.wordpress.com.

Come and visit her blog for serendipitous encounters.

As Peter McWilliams said, “In reality, serendipity accounts for one percent of the blessings we receive in life,

work and love. The other 99 percent is due to our efforts.”

  2. Thanks, again,JSbhan,I intend to look up everyone who signs into your new blogger list-it will help so many of us share our work. I am still learning-I find it difficult to find specific people or blogs. Maybe I will run upon some ideas as to how to do this through your new site. Bless you!

  12. Congratulations!!! Very Well deserved and thank you for the nomination.

    • Wow, I didn’t know the proverb means differently in different countries. As far as I know, that’s what it means in my home country. That’s what my grandmother used to tell me when I was a kid. But it’s great to know the difference.

      And yes, thank you for your reminder as well, Ronnie. I made a grammar error there “The more it grows the more it bents”, which should have been written “The more it grows the more it bends”.

      I’ve changed it in the post, and I appreciate your gentle reminder very much. Thank you again and have a lovely day. 🙂

      Namaste,

      Subhan Zein

  13. Congratulations Pak Subhan > all well deserved I assure you.

    We know that rice plant proverb and interesting, as I always thought it was a Chinese proverb. Goes to show how universal truth can be. Peace, Eric

    • Oh, wow! I didn’t know that. I thought that was originally from my country, coz that’s what my grandma used to tell me. Now I feel like an idiot who claims things belong to his homeland. Oh, boy!

      It seems like next time I post something like this, I will have to consult with you first, Cik Eric.

      Subhan Zein

  14. Congratulations!
    The rice plant philosophy is a very good one, for a humble yet charming person. Like you, who shows great posts 🙂
