World Class Profession Tag

posted by constance

Thanks to Liz for this tag. I’ve come across so many tags and this is really out of the ordinary. Tags are so much fun and you really get to know many blogger friends, a little at a time. This one will be for bloggers and their professions. Don’t be shy if you think you have a profession you are proud of, ya.


1. Copy and paste everything to a new post and Add your name next to your profession (or profession-to-be for undergrads) in the list. Make sure your name is linked to your blog/webbie.

Tip: For easier capture of links, paste into your blog using the “Visual” (for WP) and Compose (for Blogger) modes (not Edit HMTL or HTML).

2. If your profession is not in the list then simply add it to the correct alphabetical place. For example, if you want to add PLUMBER then it should be placed in between ONCOLOGIST and QUEEN.

3. Tag as many people as you can and witness how your technorati will explode!

4. Don’t forget to link back . In your case, link back to Arlene.

Save The Environment. No Plastic Bags.

posted by constance


pledge.JPGJo-N tagged me a Save the Environment tag and a link to sign up for a No Plastic Bags Pledge. Of course if I can do my part even in the pledge, I will. In Singapore, we have many occasions whereby BYOB (Bring Your Own Bags) are encouraged.

When I go shopping for groceries which mostly falls on Wednesday, this is the day where we have to pay for plastic bags. Many shoppers in Singapore have started accepting this method and most people can be seen carrying green bags when they shop.

Here is where I took the pledge.
You can too. I stand at 2856.

Every one has a role to play. Let’s keep our environment safe from further harm.

I invite all visitors to take this tag and do it on their free will. Save the World, for Our Children.

I was reading Geng‘s blog when I discovered my name on the Mother’s Day tag. I am truly sorry if I had forgotten about it because I will definitely make it a point to complete one that I’ve been tagged. And also this being a Mother’s Day tag, it does mean a lot to me. So thank you Geng and sorry for the delay.

Pick a favourite Mother’s Quote and paste it after the picture. This is my favourite quote, taken online but I do not know who wrote it.


“There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.”

— Chinese Proverb

Share your favorite Mother’s Day quotes and place your blog/name right after the piece of artwork.?

1. Irresistible Fascinations / Naomi

2. Manna from Heaven / Lena

3. And Life Goes On / Lena

4. Sheng’s Simple Thoughts… / SHENG?

5. Just Anot3. her Day / Emzkie?

6. Moments of My Life/Racel
