I got another award from Feng, who was one of my virtual friends early on in my blogging adventure. Feng became a real friend when we finally met in person during the PinoyMomsNetwork lunch last summer. Thank you very much Feng, from the bottom of my heart.

Friendships, whether virtual or in real-life are not measured by distance, time and changes.

Friendship has no borders.

Friendship is still friendship even when opinions clash because it is a dynamic interpersonal relationship between and among people. Acceptance is one key element of friendship.
I am very proud to pass on this award to the following people who I feel a connection to, whether in real life or in virtual life:

  • Analyse, whom I admire with her ability to adapt in a foreign country in a male-dominated work place without losing sight of her family values and Philippine roots. Now, if we can have the dinner date with other PMN as soon as you fly in, that would be great 🙂
  • Myrna, otherwise known as Annamanila, who does not only weave beautiful words in her posts but makes me feel good as she cheers me on and positively responds to my posts, I feel a connection to you (I hope you do too), even before I met you in person.
  • Joni, my blog theme designer whom I have not met (yet) in person but I feel connected to, in more ways than one.
  • Raquel, you write a lot of good posts which I learn a lot from.
  • Tina, you are one prolific blogger that I feel connected to.
  • Mary, you are nice and candid and I feel the hidden messages in your posts.
  • Auee, I love your quirky and sensible posts. Its just like having a wonderful bud beside you, never running out of topics to talk about.
  • Feng, who inspire me to blog more about my teaching experiences so others could learn (I hope) from it.

Now, if I could only reach for that roll of tissue since I am getting a bit emo here 🙂

Hi Teacher Julie,

Thank you very much for the award. I’m touched. Prolific ey? hehehe 😉 Oo nga eh may Carpal Tunnel na yata ako.

Seriously, I really appreciate that you even thought of me to be included in your list.

aaawww, pass over that box of tissue pls! I feel the same with you. and I totally agree! friendship whether in virtual or real life is still friendship. Thanks for being a friend to me! 😉

[…] In light of this topic, I want to acknowledge the “friendship awards” I got from two bloggers. One is from Teacher Julie who’s been using the very first WP theme I made (that I’ve been wanting to update but I’ve got no time) and whose blog was featured in the newspaper a few months ago (I actually have a copy of this Philippine Daily Inquirer. Thanks Romzkee for giving it to me!). She included me in her list of virtual friends to whom she passed the first class friendship award and described me as “my blog theme designer whom I have not met (yet) in person but I feel connected to, in more ways than one.” *Sniff sniff* Please pass the tissue!
