I know this post is super delayed!
Anyway, I’ll just let you go through the most elegant blogging event I have ever been – The Nuffnang Blog Awards. How elegant? It was held in Singapore!! ! – at the grand ballroom of Pan Pacific Hotel.Â I think there were around 400 bloggers from the region (Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and the Philippines).Â 20 bloggers represented the Philippines (and it includes me) LUCKY!!!Â I was one of the lucky winners of the Pringles and Uniquely Singapore contest and I was sent to Singapore with other Nuffies!jane
As you know, I just arrived from my Formula1 Singapore trip as well and yet I’m back? There’s just much to love about Singapore! and this event is definitely my chance to finally meet Tim, Ming, Mike, Robb, and Jessica!!! They are the ones I frequently talk to or stalk with online hahaha! and I finally got to meet them!
First of all, Thank you to the Nuffnang, Pringles, Uniquely Singapore, Canon and Link Hotel for making this experience possible!
In this trip, I also had many firsts.Â It was my first blog event outside of the country.Â It was my first Nuffnang Awards.Â It was the first time I am with Nyoks outside the countryâ€¦Â For the first time I met Mr. Poeâ€¦ also I got to meet the other bloggersâ€¦ first time in Mint Museumâ€¦ first time to finally have a Singaporean friendâ€¦ and so on and so forth!
I considered this ONE BIG Birthday gift for me!Â This trip has been symbolical.Â Itâ€™s like the celebration of a â€œNew Me.â€Â With a lot of new stuff in my lifeâ€¦ car, career, friends, possibly loveâ€¦Â What else could get better?Â While Iâ€™m lucky, Iâ€™m gonna make the most out of it 🙂
At the Awards Night, I didnâ€™t bring any camera *paiseh* â€¦ I had a really tiny bag and I thought Iâ€™d rather mingle around.Â All my companions have cameras with them anyway so all the pictures below have been grabbed from Ada, Maki and Ms. Noemi.
This is me … in 10mm wide angle.. so I’m stretched horizontally T__T
Mica, me and Maki all dressed up 😛 (all the single ladies :P)
All the Filipina ladies at Link Hotel Lobbyâ€¦ ready for the glam party!Â This is also the first time I met Alodia, Ashley, Fran, Jen and Frances 🙂
When I say ELEGANTâ€¦ well this is how it looks!Â I canâ€™t help but feel super lucky!Â This was held at one of Pan Pacificâ€™s ballrooms.
Frances and me at the registration
I finally met Tim!!! (co-founder of Nuffnang)Â Iâ€™m surprised he recognized either me or my blog.Â Thatâ€™s what I get if I comment too often on his blog LOL.Â If heâ€™s so nice online, heâ€™s definitely nicer in person!Â He never tires of smilingâ€¦ the whole night he just had that friendly grin! 🙂
Thanks to miss Noemi for this special picture!
with the Nuffies, Jane, Ashley and me
I somehow found myself posing with the Malaysian bloggers :)Â To bad Mike didnâ€™t introduce me to them, I would have wanted to get to know them :PÂ yahâ€¦ If you find yourselves here, please drop a comment by so that I can link you 😉
We were at Table 7 🙂
Audrey (Timâ€™s Princess) and me. 🙂 I kept on calling her â€œPrincesâ€ because she looks like one 🙂 sheâ€™s really adorable, approachable and friendly 🙂 very very pretty too!

Rob Chew and me 🙂
I donâ€™t know if he knows that I have a crush on him hahahaâ€¦ and I finally have a picture with him!!! Iâ€™m such a fan girl lolâ€¦ Ladies, IKRâ€¦ too bad for us heâ€™s gayâ€¦ a very hawt one woot!
