Bulgarian Slivatree - The Noblesse Oblige Award

I make is a rule not to accept nominations form other bloggers and there have been a few, but recently there was one from Windmill at http://dfoolonthehill.com/.

I have decided to take this nomination up because I respect Windmill and look up to him as a blogger for his diverse and interesting daily accounts and observations on all matters that concern him and others. Windmill or Windy as some call him is always friendly, loyal and approachable in all communication.

I would like to nominate Martyn from Beyond The Mango Juice. Although not technically an expatriate, he might as well be with his cleverly constructed articles. I always look forward to his posts as I know I will not only be enlightening from tales of Thailand, but thoroughly entertained without fail as his humour and on the mark observations and knowledge hits on all the right buttons.

Beyond The Mango Juice

putting together life’s jigsaw in North East Thailand

A recent post about Thai Ladyboys - Pattaya, is a classic example and is the last in a series of account about Thailand and sex for sale. You might understand that this is quite a sensitive subject, but dealt with superbly without being course and of course always entertaining. Martyn is one of the friendliest bloggers you will ever meet and I feel this award is more than well deserved on this ocassion. I recommend you visit his blog and follow it you may be missing some classic posts otherwise.
