This is my 5th kiwi creation for this Zespri kiwi blogger challenge, and my 3rd today. Grace really doesn’t know when to give up! :D
I’m just so inspired, and I have so many bloggers I want to kiwify. I just don’t have enough time!!!
But here’s a blogger I think I definitely should kiwify: Smith Leong.
If you recall, I’ve once interviewed Smith for this blog. Check out the really AWESOME blogpost here.
And here’s a very old picture of Smith (hehe!) – you can tell who is his favorite superhero:
He’s one of those guys who are ‘not shy’ about telling you that he’s awesome. Awesome at what, exactly? LOL! :D And oh, he’s also a sex blogger, but let’s not go there, shall we? :P
Smith is one blogger who inspires me because of his unique perspectives about Life, relationships, and even the blogosphere and Blogging!
Out of the many things that he has said to me in the few conversations that we have had thus far, a couple have really struck me.
There was once when we had lunch at Harbourfront and somehow the topic of blogger popularity (in particular, mine) came up. And he told me, in all brutal honesty, “Look around, in this restaurant, anyone here knows who you are? No, right? You are not famous!”
Of course, I didn’t think he was being mean or anything. But it told me something – you are either someone or you are not. Either you are awesome and people know who you are, or you are just nobody.
Like ice cold water poured down my back, his words really shocked me. And I think I haven’t fared too badly since. I’ve won at this year’s Blog Awards, and I’ll be appearing on TV screens come September when the episode for ‘Off The Path’ is aired on Channel U. :) I have Smith to thank. Smithankyou! :D And oh, Smith blogs at Smithankyou.com. Really!
And you also wouldn’t think of getting relationship advice from a sex blogger, right? Ok, maybe you would. But I won’t. Turns out, Smith’s pretty good at dishing out good advice! LOL!
I once asked him how he handles the fact that he and his wife seem to be very different character-wise. He’s outgoing and loud while she’s a teacher and quite the opposite. How does he ensure he doesn’t neglect her when he goes out partying and all?
And Smith, as usual, has it all figured out. He told me that when his wife doesn’t have any engagements, he spends time with her. When she’s busy or out with the gals, then it’s his time to go party with the boys. This way, she will not feel neglected by him, even when she doesn’t want to go clubbing or anything like that. So smart!
I certainly passed on this piece of relationship advice to my fiance! LOL! No mahjong unless I am overseas on sponsored trips! :D
And my special kiwi creation for Smith is…
I call them Super Kiwi and Bikini Babe.
Sex blogger mah. Must have bikini babe somewhere. LOL!
And of course, there’s a Super Kiwi Smoothie…
The Super Kiwi Smoothie has been certified as being “Delicious!” by Yours Truly. :D I added 2 green kiwifruit, 2 small bananas and some ice cubes and blended it all into this power-packed smoothie! :)
Heading off to the beach!
*P/s: I sliced my finger while creating Super Kiwi. So, unless you are well trained at wielding a knife, don’t try this at home! :P
