Happy Birthday To My Blog

On the 28th July, it marked the 3rd anniversary of my young blog. I have come a long way since the day I started and I must say a big "Thank You" to all the bloggers who have shared so many interesting photos, information, stories and juicy gossips with me. I love them all. It has made me smarter and my brain is getting bigger each day with the valuable knowledge and happiness shared. It's priceless to me. A bigger "Thank You" to all the silent readers out there who were too shy to comment but preferred to send me emails instead. So funny geh....




I must admit that I first heard of the word "BLOGS" from my bestie Lifebook when we were office colleagues on the 42nd Floor of Menara TH Perdana along Jalan Sultan Ismail in 2004. It was an alien word to me then and asked him to show me the blogs online. I replied him that it was for mere busy-bodies to wash dirty linens. LOL..


From late 2004 onwards, I started reading several interesting blogs quietly and the earlier jokers were Legolas, Will I Am, Bedtime Stories, I Am Who I Am , 5 Elements Of My Life , Fable Frog and the earlier blog of Medie007. They never failed to amuse and make me laugh so much. Laughter is my Best Medicine!

I discovered that I have many Grandma Tales and Ghost Encounters to share and my blogging fire promptly just started. Now I am really washing my dirty linens sometimes to entertain my readers. I am just telling the truths, so what? I am thankful to all the bloggers whom I have met up and they have certainly made my life more interesting. All the spats have been really forgiven but not forgotten. LMAO!




Look! My honey presented me with this gift below! Thanks Honey & Muacks!



An iPad 2 with the hope that I will continue to blog often and keep my brains busy. I believe that blogging often may help to prevent Alzheimer's sickness. Do you agree?


I have drafted a simple "Bucket List" here to share. I have managed to achieve a few and plan to find time and $ to accomplish the others. It is tough to save money these days with inflation soaring.

Wishful List Achieved:
1. Lived & Studied in USA.
2. Visited New York's World Trade Centre (before 9/11)
3. Visited Grand Canyons
4. Visited Niagara Falls
5. Visited United Kingdom
6. Skiing in USA and South Korea
7. Climbed Mount Kinabalu
8. Visited The Great Wall Of China
9. Visited Angkor Wat ¬ World's Heritage in Cambodia
10. Winter Boat Race in San Francisco

Bucket List:
1. Climb Yellow Mountains in Shanghai
2. Visit "Silk Road" in China
3. Tour All-Europe
4. Tour All-USA & Canada
5. Cycle across Holland and Denmark.
6. Visit New Zealand
7. Visit Jaipur - India
8. Migrate to USA
9. Retire in Penang.
10. Become a Good Chef & Baker.
11. Have meals with Food Guru - Suituapui in Sibu.

To commemorate my 3rd Year Blogging, I have a little guessing game below. The first 3 persons who could correctly guess my blogger gym-buddy below will win my delicious home-made Cup Cakes!! Yes, I will bake them myself and send to you anywhere in Malaysia! So simple! Look at his steel body with ox power packed muscles!




Quick!

  1. Arumugam!!! happy birthday to your Arumublog!!! wow, didn't know you've been in the blogsphere for so long!! but Thambee thinks there was once Arumugam just disappeared and almost abandoned Arumublog!! now luckily got Letchumi buying Arumugam an iPad2 to encourage Arumugam to continue washing you dirty dothy!!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  2. oh, let me guess who that Arumugam's gym buddy is first!! so is he TZ from "5 Elements of My Life"?? Thambee doesn't care!!! whoever that is, Arumugam still need to bake and deliver the cupcakes to Thambee!!

    ReplyDelete
  3. since it's a happy occasion, let Thambee sing Arumugam a song to celebrate Arumublog's 3 year's old!! Thambee recorded and uploaded to youtube, Arumugam must go and watch hokay??

  4. wow, since 2004 already those old birds talking about blogging?? Thambee didn't even know what was that, not even heard about the word before.. remember Thambee and Arumugam were still happily chasing Kamala and Letchumi around the bushes and coconut trees back then in our motherland - Tirachiruppali!!!

    ReplyDelete
  5. come to think about it, Thambee really miss all those ghost stories and grandma tales from Arumugam a lot!! why Arumugam never blog about those anymore?? Letchumi always complains she fell in love and married Arumugam because of all those stories..

    ReplyDelete
  6. wow, Arumugam really have a lot of wishlist.. but Arumugam forgotten one big wish to achieve.. remember to have many many kids with Letchumi, so that we all can form Arumugam, Thambee and Sons Pte Ltd to sell all those antique curry pots and milk buckets, remember?? Arumugam will be the CEO and Thambee will be the MD.. and Letchumi will be the PA to CEO that will sit on Arumugam's lap..

    ReplyDelete
  7. why is Arumugam thinking of retiring in Penang?? Arumugam you do not want to go back to the slum back in motherland Tiruchirappali already?? how can Arumugam just dump Letchumi alone there?? Letchumi misses Arumugam so much and she's crying every night waiting for Arumugam to go back and live with her..
