Somewhere in my youth or childhood.....

I woke up this morning with Julie Andrew's famous song, "Somewhere in my youth or childhood, ..........." (Sound of Music).
Thank you maknenek for this lovely, lovely box of chocolates that is going to be my header from now on. Eventho I can just salivate while looking at it each day and wet my keyboard in the process, I will always treasure this. Maknenek left this in my ym this morning and I have managed to turn over the template upside down (without even getting anyone's expert help!) to place the html!
For your info, maknenek is a long time cyber friend who made the journey from Forcheim in Germany to see me after we found each other in rantauan.com. We have been online buddies for so long, and during our first meeting, to see Raihan performing in London, it was as if we had known each other for a long, long time. From Raihan, we went on to see Bombay Dreams and what fun we had. Since then, we have ventured in all sorts of things - maknenek being the talented and resourceful person she is. She picks up cues and bounces off ideas and translates them into something fantastic - I enjoy working with her on our expreimental online rantauan.tv.
I start a cerpen or a story, and I can be sure that fom her living room in Forcheim, she'd pick up the thread and continue it and develope the storylines along the same wavelengths that most of our rantauan buddies are blessed with. And with this I mean to include Dr Bubbles or Is Badut in Malaysia who used to crack us up from Vientiene where he was a tireless volunteer, klmuk, the bloglurker, in Aberdeen, Uja in Singapore and many many more, such as Kasarubia in Melbourne and Memento in Amsterdam and yes, Nina in Canada and Ely in San Francisco. Not forgetting our Penghulu (Iskandaria) in Los Angeles. Oh, what fun we have. You should read our "Bangsawan in Cyberia" and Perang Pantun!
And now as we expand our circle of online buddies, I meet so many talented and gifted ones. And you know who you are. And thank you so much for the many dedications in postings of some bloggers who I didn't even know visit me. And thank you for the presents in the post. I feel I do not deserve these, but thank you and in return I offer my friendship. (Advise to templates, links, html, photobucket etc comes with extra charge! :) )

Kak Teh : First of all, tak baik lah dok bagi org terliuq tengok chocolate tu.
Second : ada charge toll ka, dok lalu lalang kut sini pi blog orang lain kat link Kak Teh tu? Sometimes I see refering blog kat your stat tu paling tinggi from my blog no..
Third : It is nice to have a friend like you, we have never met, I hope one day we will and it will be my honour to get to know you better.

Waaa...melilih air liur tgk coklat tu...hmm... *choc-activated*

faux diamante said...

Aisehbedaaah...! Ni yang tak best ni, org baru psyche up for a more intensive exercise regime. My best friend is working out to climb Mount Kinabalu, walaupun dulu kitorang geng mencekik. I am such a slacker, your blocks of chocs are not helping. But I must say it makes your blog more enticingly delish!!!

MassyLassy said...

Kak Teh! You kena ajar kita cammana Kat Teh dapat taruk that delicious (air liuq meleleh you!!) Chocolate on top tu!!! Oooi!!! Nak pergi beli choco-late!!!

anedra said...

kakteh: you probably have more friends than anyone else I know, what with rantauan, blogspot and other bloggers, Malaysia Hall `et`c..etc..! But you've always had that gift. Always warm and open etc..where you got it from, is no mystery to me - it's gotta be from Tok. You're so much like her.
*oh..and this is not a bodek session ok?*

anedra said...

lupa pulak, boley ajar I how to link someday? err...how much do you charge for that? sedara punya pasal, free kot kan?

Kak Teh said...

auntyN: setakat ni kita tak kenakan toll algi. baru nak dapat consultation dengan S velloo.Yes, the traffic coming from yr blog pun boleh tahan juga. Kalah sikit drp blog peminat siti nur saja!
ish, klmuk!!! apa ni? kalau tak kawan tak lah tunggu tengok orang tu dipinang!
zaireen - u can look but musn't touch...:)
nazrah...hmmm i think now i need more than choc! will let u know.

Kak Teh said...

massylassy, kalau nak belajar kena malam bungan mengambang, bawak ayam seekor - ayam putih tau, and anedra tak applies to you too kalau nak belajar link mengelink.
and abt similiarities dengan Tok tu..janganlah dihebahkan pulak!

Mobilemom said...

3)yes on my top of to do list is to catch a musical with you in londra, dengki abis dgn mak nenek.

MakNenek said...

salam kak teh
alahai this made me so malu this morning when i first read ur blog update. i was so excited abt the banner and did one for myself, and the next person i wanted to 'try' for is YOU, itu je, its really nothing, and i really dont deserve this honour **malu nyer* as many have said here already, you're one of the most warmest person ive known, with so many friends online or offline, you always know how to make each feel special for being themselves. that is the beauty of YOU. its really ur anugerah, and its no wonder u have touched so many people's hearts. i will always remember that meeting in July 2003. I was very close to doing my Diva dance on the theatre floor if not for the tudung! thanks for the friendship, dunia dan akhirat, inshaallah. :)

yak lain jgn lah jeles, kalau nak header, email kepada maknenek@gmail.com, kalau ada masa dan inspirasi, you might just get urself a banner too! tenah, u sure abt the bulldog ah? ;)
