THEY WILL ASK thee as to what they should spend on others. Say: "Whatever of your wealth you spend shall [first] be for your parents, and for the near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer; and whatever good you do, verily, God has full knowledge thereof." - Al-Baqarah (2:215)

Thinking blogger?

I have been named for the Thinking Blogger Award by Kak Teh, Apandi and Raden Galoh. Why did 3 bloggers tag me? No, not so much because I got many people thinking, but because I'm such a slow thinker! Very slow to respond! But then again, if the award came with a prize instead of a price, I probably would have responded immediately... :-)

When Kak Teh first tagged me I had a few bloggers in my mind whom I wanted to name for the award. Before I had the chance to respond, my PC crashed. Hard disk couldn't be saved, so bye-bye to so many files which I haven't had the opportunity to save on my thumb drive... aargh!!

By the time I got back to the blogosphere, all the people whom I wanted to name for the award had already been named by other bloggers. Having lost quite a number of files in my old hard disk, I don't really have the time to bloghop to search for other potential recipients.

As such, I will have to respectfully withdraw from participating. Nevertheless, thank you to those who thought my blog was worthy enough to be named.

Kak Teh said...

Pi Bani said...

Thanks Kak Teh. I just got back from visiting the home of someone who was thinking about killing himself because he THINKS he has HIV. I guess thinking can be hazardous too if it is negative thinking!

Will do a posting on this soon, insyaAllah.

Hi Pi Bani, Thanks for linking my blog.
I think you should be awarded the Humanitarian Blogger Award (if there is such an award).
You're really doing great service to the community.

Take care & God Bless.

Hi Pi Bani, love your sense of humour inview of the work you do.
Not many people have shoulders like yours.
Should and when I balek kampong....I certainly want to meet you and say 'hello' to a most wonderful woman. YOU.
I will wait for that day to come.
My very best regards, UL.

Hi Jemima
No problem. I found your blog by chance and found it interesting enough for me to visit on a regular basis. Your postings may be short but enough to convey the message.

Uncle Lee
We need to have some sense of humour, otherwise we can go nuts! And yes, would love to meet up with you should and when you balik kampong. I'm curious as well to know how the mysterious "hero" from Moonlight and Roses fame look like! (And I bet K.Ruby will be screaming, "I wanna join too!!!)
