Amidst the excitement of nominating our favourites in the Project Petaling Street Annual Awards 2005, let us not forget those who have made Project Petaling Street possible. The core group who conceived this idea and brought it to fruition deserves all the accolades for elevating Malaysian blogosphere to where we are today. We have a lot to be thankful for. These dedicated people have devoted time, money and effort in the initial stages so that your blog, my blog and all Malaysian blogs have a place to congregate and share in an orderly manner.
Personally, I have grown in many ways because of PPS. I am grateful for the opportunity to reach out and to be reached out to during the saddest moments of my life. That has significantly eased the burden of grief that I had to bear during those painful times. As one who stays alone, the opportunities to go out and interact socially are far and few in between. PPS has allowed me to do this by directing people to my blog and ultimately I have made many friends this way. In short, PPS has helped enrich my life and changed the way I interact with the world outside my comfort zone. This uplifting process will go on as long as there is a Project Petaling Street. For this I am truly indebted.
Special mention goes to Aizuddin Danian for continuing to oversee the administration of PPS. He is the main driving force behind the blogtal we have come to love, or hate, and keeping it running still two years on. The Blog Awards will be meaningless without us showing our heartfelt appreciation to Aizuddin and those who continue to soldier on to allow us a spot in cyberspace to showcase the events and things that matters most to us to Malaysia and the rest of the world. These are the people who make it possible for us to share and to learn in our journey through blogosphere. I am ignorant of how a Wiki works. Perhaps we can get this topic of showing our appreciation to Aizuddin and his merry men started at the VOI Wiki Page and take it from there. Suggestions on how we can achieve that are most welcomed. Lets give credit where credit is due. These are the individuals who deserve an award more than anybody else.
