Arte Y Pico

By the grace that is KelticKaos, I have been given an award. Though I have no idea what this award actually means, I could give a fark. Because for the first time in all my blogging years, someone saw it appropriate to acknowledge my insane ramblings. To give praise to my inner voices, who keep talking nonsense all at the same time.

I am truly humbled by KelticKaos's description of me. Never in my whole life has anyone called me "sweet". I've been called by my teachers "loud", "rambunctious", "energetic", "dedicated" and of lately "a MILF" (Hah!! This was not by any of my teachers, though) but never sweet. But I like it. I like it very much. I too consider KelticKaos my kindred spirit, for our shared love for Edward Norton and all things 80's and cheesy.

I need to select 5 other blogs who I deem worthy of the award. Which on one hand is not that tough because there's a lot ..I mean, A LOT of worthier blogs than mine. But on the other hand, is actually rather tough, because I only get to name 5 and risk the wrath of others who I do not mention. If it were possible, I would submit KelticKaos's name again but then that would just turn into somewhat like a tennis rally and just confuse people (or only me).

So here goes, my choices for the Arte Y Pico Award.

1. Basa Basi Nano Nano -Famil cracks me up. Usually with his paparazzi-styled handphone taken photos and also with his cooking skills, that sometimes puts me to shame. A friend of mine also mentioned that he's kind of cute but believe me, I'm not going to be the one telling him THAT!!

2. Casa Arina - I like Anamiraa because she tells it like it is. And a lot of her posts I can relate to.

3. Crash Test Mommy - There's a big chance that Jenny's already been given this award by someone else because she has a league of faithful readers. But I like her, I LOVE her blog so I'm taking my chances and hope I ruffle her feathers with this. Also, she takes time to personally email me responses to my comments. PERSONAL EMAILS!! How lovey-dovey is that?

4. Moby's Musing - Moby is my virtual pal from Singapore. He has 3 kids, all below the age of 5 and yet he still has time to update his blog(s) everyday. I wonder where he finds the time/energy.

5. The Simple Dollar - I love Trent and his no nonsense finance blog because he makes me feel like I can take control of my finances. Other words, my life too. The way he writes simplifies all those money mumbo jumbo for me. It was partly because of his advice, I took the leap of opening up IREE Touch with Ida. If that isn't having a great impact on someone's life, I dunno what is.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go practise my Arte Y Pico speech. And get ready to go on Oprah.

Here are the Rules, if you choose to follow them:

1.Pick five blogs you consider deserving of this award, whether for creativity, design, interesting material, or contributions to the blogging community, no matter what language.

2. Name each nominee and link to his/her blog.

3. Show the award and include the name (and link to his/her blog) of whoever presented you with this award.

4. Link to the Arte y Pico blog so everyone knows the origin of this award.

5. Post these rules
