The Nuffnang Blog Awards – first international blog event

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.  I think there were around 400 bloggers from the region (Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and the Philippines).  20 bloggers represented the Philippines (and it includes me) LUCKY!!!  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!

You know how much of a Nuffnang fan I am… I have my whole Nuffnang story (even before they came here in the Philippines) all over my blog.  See my posts about Nuffnang  here, here and here. :P

In this trip, I also had many firsts.  It was my first blog event outside of the country.  It was my first Nuffnang Awards.  It was the first time I am with Nyoks outside the country…  For the first time I met Mr. Poe… also I got to meet the other bloggers… first time in Mint Museum… first time to finally have a Singaporean friend… and so on and so forth!

I considered this ONE BIG Birthday gift for me!  This trip has been symbolical.  It’s like the celebration of a “New Me.”  With a lot of new stuff in my life… car, career, friends, possibly love…  What else could get better?  While I’m lucky, I’m gonna make the most out of it :)

At the Awards Night, I didn’t bring any camera *paiseh* … I had a really tiny bag and I thought I’d rather mingle around.  All my companions have cameras with them anyway so all the pictures below have been grabbed from Ada, Maki and Ms. Noemi.

All the Filipina ladies at Link Hotel Lobby… ready for the glam party!  This is also the first time I met Alodia, Ashley, Fran, Jen and Frances :)

When I say ELEGANT… well this is how it looks!  I can’t help but feel super lucky!  This was held at one of Pan Pacific’s ballrooms.

Frances and me at the registration

I finally met Tim!!! (co-founder of Nuffnang)  I’m surprised he recognized either me or my blog.  That’s what I get if I comment too often on his blog LOL.  If he’s so nice online, he’s definitely nicer in person!  He never tires of smiling… 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 :)  To bad Mike didn’t introduce me to them, I would have wanted to get to know them :P  yah… If you find yourselves here, please drop a comment by so that I can link you ;)

We were at Table 7 :)
