Bits & a couple of awards

So he’s somewhere totally out of this world, blasting his way to the International Space Station (ISS). And, oh, what do you know, it’s the same fella that most blogs had announced way way before the mainstream media had it as their headline today (Wednesday). The Soyuz was launched successfully at exactly 21.21 our time. well, Dr, Sheikh…enjoy your capsule ride, dude.

Our brother Ahirudin Attan has abit more on this. And Big bro has even more.

On the local front (the earth), our little darling, heart-patient Tee Hui Yi seems to be improving tremendously by the looks of it. Although she’s still on oxygen therapy, whatever that means, she can now breathe on her own. This is great development.

Things are certainly looking rather rosy.

To top the day off, earlier tonight I received a You-Make-Me-Smile Award from none other than my sweet-as-strawberry-fudge-cream blogging buddy, Benny. Didn’t realize I could make a soul smile, let alone make them roll on the floor laughing their asses off. But she recognized this, and so I’m displaying the Award picture thing (below) on the sidebar and shall remain there for as long as only God knows when. Here’s to you, Benny. Keep on rollin’, pretty flamingo.

This award shall stay here and wont be passed on to anyone for now. My crippled face needs a smile too so go ahead, make me and you will be awarded.

Ok this is not an update. Just that i simply missed this one out. I actually received not just one, not three but a respectable TWO awards from the same roller Coaster lady, Benny. That makes it double the honour. Thanks, Ben...

Here's the other one, named The Egel Nest Blog Award.

I'm on a roll.

we are approaching the end of a beautiful ramadan. never mind that someone was seen dozing off during the doa selamat for the angkasawan and that same someone obviously didn't do his howework with regards to the event (it became very obvious when he started asking some questions). i share a commenter's hope that shaih muszaphar will not be politicized to suit narrow political agenda -- not just the BN but also the opposition's.

i see you are in cloud 9 somewhere in your own space over the progress shown by adik Tee Hui Yi. i am happy for you. again, i hope this will not be politicized by certain political parties.

dr M's recovery is the other great news. this one, i hope and pray, will lead to the kind of politics this country needs -- somebody to kick that someone's ass and the backsides of his SIL and other koncos.

it's been a magical ramadan.

kak E,

Salam aidilfitri to u too, and your whole family. been nice knowing u. i will blog-hop 2moro, and hope to do my last raya post 2moro, but ur always welcome and never too early/late for anything. thanks akak!

rocky, brother...

i wasnt wrong then. i thought i saw it too but the excitement was abit too overwhelming to see dr sheikh getting himself ready getting into the soyuz. yea, being a non-political guy, politicising this is the last thing i hv in mind. space tourist ke, space cake ke, he's one lucky MALAYSIAN to get to be part of the mission.

i dont know man, for some reason Hui Yi touches not just mine, but my dad's heart too. she deserves to be some place fun instead of the IJN but insyaAllah she'll make it. this case can never be politicised, unless its from a heartless somebody. am planning to visit her once she's fully recovered.

oh and Dr M too. he's looking great this man. once he's out, maybe i shld ask bigdog if he cld arrange something in order to make my dream a reality in meeting him up personally. mana lah tau, rezki.

coming over this saturday, bro?


aiseh, salam ramadhan to you and family as well. i'm posting my last raya entry 2moro, b4 the big day. then as i said to Kak E, planning to blog-hop wishing everyone salam aidilfitri 2moro. do drop by again esok doc..hahaha
