I spotted this on Lody's blog and thought I would have a go. Do wish me Luck!

I do wonder if there is anyone who reads but doesn’t post comments, I don’t mind as I do read some blogs but don’t comment as well. But it would be nice just to say hello and maybe come and read your blog as well.

So who reads my blog?
1. As a comment on this post, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn’t matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember! And if we’ve never met in real life, leave me a comment of your favorite post I wrote and why it was your favorite.

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It’s actually really funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I’ll assume you’re playing the game and I’ll come to your blog and leave one about you.

3.Do you read my posts from a reader, blogroll or is this your first visit?

BTW, I am jumping in with gifts for my readers who leave comments on their memories of me too.

**Closing date for my own readers will be 1ST DECEMBER 2008! Shipping out date 8th December 2008.

**All I can say at the moment will be that there will something Bento! a Book! and an item of Craft stash!


I got the name of the winner, the bento thingy in the prize, the book thingy in the prize but still deliberating on the craft stash item!

Now the thing is that I will not announce the winner straight away except that he/she is a Malaysian but not residing in Selangor nor Kuala Lumpur!

And I shall be mailing out the prize on Monday but I shall update here if the parcel went out earlier!

Dont you just love mysteries!

Yes, I do read your blog ( almost everyday except weekend).
I also stay in Klang, can I know you stay in which part of Klang?
Recently I just create a blog ( due to kids and I love to eat nasi lemak. But the blog is not up to date, still trying to download the 1st Bento pictures but failed, will try to solve it and upload ASAP.
Take care.

Hi Emily,
After retire from work since Sept08 (not too long ago) , nothing to do and free, so use the free time and log on to Internet to see and look, especially like those food, travel and fashion news. After read your blog, I started like the Bento concept. Ya, I need to quickly settle my notebook problem otherwise I couldn't publish my 1st Bento set.

Urmmm? I first got to know you thru Mona and the Great Granny Squares Exchange! Remember that? I hoped its the correct Emily, LOL.

Angelina said...

You left a comment on a blog of mine that is barely seen by anyone. So I've come to see your blog and say hello!

Emile Zola@life said...

Earlier I thought you living in Klang, due to I saw this welcome note in your blog at top left corner:-

A Welcome Note!
Thank you for visiting my blog! Do say hello! Have a great day in KLANG.

Emily said...

Hi Angelina:
I particularly love this posting of yours at one of your own blogs!

(My response here is for the benefit for my Malaysian commentors!)

Lillie said...

Paul Lionel said...

Hi Emily.

Thanks for visiting my blog so often. I remember your comment that I shouldn't be zapping my bento in the bento box but on a plate LOL. That got me laughing.


Janet C said...

Our meeting was book-related, which led to crafts and the rest is history....*_^
You know I always read your blog!

HI! Emily,

Decided to jump into the bandwagon with the rest of your friends. We met at NNC a year back and I only met you, by accident, last week at the 100yen shop in Taman Pertama. So glad we did, now I know who's behind all those witty and blunt remarks I so admire. You have spunk and a genuine sense of friendship. I'm still receiving compliments from the crocheted tote bag you made for me for an exchange - Infact, I've learnt to crochet because of you!

Hugs! Maybe we'll bump into each other again?

LODY said...

SO sad that I wasn't spending much time online when the contest occurs.. but still I must admit that I don't visit any blog often, though whenever I have the extra time, I make it a point to visit as much blog as I can... particularly my NNC friends.

Whenever I think of you Emily, I think of bento and food... lol that you're are very devoted on bentoing and doing a great job on it.

Though your blog is not on my blogroll, my sequence on coming to your blog is from Wendy's first, then I go to most NNC members blog from there.

I've been sitting for hours now infront of the computer reading blogs... trying to update myself on what everybody's doing.

Congrats to the winner. The prizes are overwhelming. Love that bag.:)

Have a great weekend.

Emily said...

The winner (selected via the Random Thingy) is Janet Chan from Ipoh, Perak.
