Awards and Acknowledgements

The Spitting Vessel thanks Sher of Ur Resident Chef for having been named one of the recipients of "The Brilliante Blog Awards". This is the second time this site has been merited with this specific citation, and coming from Sher makes it even more meaningful. The genuinely trusting and wonderfully cheerful attitude of this courageous, determined and adventurous young woman from Singapore; and her rich and varied experience of seeking her niche and her happiness in Europe all by her lonesome - is an example of the resilience of the Asian character, as well as the balance provided by the Asians' grasp of their values. This soon to be globally recognized baker and chef will enrich and enliven your culinary experience with her simple yet exquisite concoctions that are healthy in both content and attitude. She includes food conservation in her recipes in recognition of the food scarcity and shortage gripping countries in Asia and Africa. Thank you very much Sher.

The Spitting Vessel is equally grateful and privileged to receive this "I Love Your Blog" citation from Jenaisle of "Working Abroad" blog. Having been named by Jenaisle as one of the sites she likes is a proud development for the Spitting Vessel who remains one of her most ardent fans. Jenaisle has published her short stories, poems and a novel. She is an awesomely creative and talented writer, whose stories are woven seamlessly in the historical context of its thematic settings - describing the social fabric of the period accurately. The very credible plot and its realistic twists and turns sustains the interest and excitement of the reader. She has all the potentials of becoming an internationally famous writer. Thank you Jenaisle.

The Spitting Vessel expresses its apologies for the delay in accepting and acknowledging both these awards. Schedules and work activities have been tight and difficulties in accessing the internet have reduced opportunities for blog visits and posting time. Sometimes situations can be distressing.

HI Jenaisle,

My pleasure and privilege to accept the award. I really do look back on the comments page of past posts as there are those who get into the site from Google search, which doesn't pass through the current page.

Thanks. We may need to put up a mutual admiration society. LOL!:-) --Durano, done!

Hello Kim,

Thank you very much Kim, for the kind words, the concern and the friendship.

I have been inspired too by people I've met, those I've dealt with, and those whose creations remind me of what beauty there is that still exists in this world. But I never thought that one of the most powerful influence I would encounter would be in the digital world - through you and your work, and the efforts you continue to undertake to help other artists. That is truly inspiring.

Have a great week. :-) --Durano, done!

Hi Sher,

Raining hard eh? Don't catch a cold. Better yet prepare your delicious chicken soup.

While you're at it, prepare a chocolate dessert as well. I'm sure your partner won't be restless inside the house as long as he eats great food. :-) --Durano, done!
