Let’s HOLLAA THE NIGHT AWAY – NUFFNANG STYLE!
The event was a very grand one with at the Grand Ballroom of Pan Pacific Hotel, Singapore. Before it began, all the bloggers were mingling around at the red carpet and the photo wall. As we were sponsored by Pringles, there were Pringles crisps available in all 3 flavours for us to munch on!
I personally liked the original one & the green one
The spooky orange Pringles one tasted strange
So these were the only 2 which were most appropriate
Before I begin with what happened during the event, allow me to spam more piccies (hey it’s not everyday we doll up like this right) from the red carpet, and also including the ones taken at Link Hotel where we accommodated and the bus journey towards the event!
When Yee Hou yelled to signal that our ride had arrived, it was time for everyone to leave Link Hotel to board the bus. Bon voyage!

And 2+ years down the road,
Nuffnang puts together this huge event!
With Allan Wu, the host of Amazing Race as our emcee
The video was superbly done, with co-founders Ming & Tim speaking in unison at certain jump cuts and transitions. All the Nuffies from Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and Phillipines had their chances on camera too, to make this video a complete and wholesome one.
Hence the thunderous applause and approving, proud smiles of everyone present.
Ming & Tim then began with a simple yet meaningful speech to officiate the event. I’ve shot a video of each of their speeches for you guys to relish. Do take a listen, it’s worth it 🙂
omg dunno where did Ming’s speech go. Don’t worry. Will figure that out soon.
The food then arrived to satiate our rumbling tummies. We had a simple appetizer of sour dough bread and salted butter for our tastebuds to make way for a splendid 4-course fine dining menu ahead.
And this was what we had :
The 1st course was Marinated Smoked Tuna with Feta, Herb Salad and Balsamic Olive Oil.
It was so tender, such love!
And the chunks of cheese had this salty zing to it 🙂
Next up on the list was this Light Cream of Asparagus and Green Peas topped with a Chive Mousseline. Gone are the days where bland, clear soup ruled the tables!
Most of us at the table loved the cheesy mash!
And the chicken was really tender to the bones.
It was really a pain in the you-know-where as the boyfie and I faced lotsa complications in uploading of the videos due to incompatible video formats. But apart from that, we’re more than glad to share with you these videos I shot during the event.
Jengjengjeng, so as promised, here are the videos of all the winners of each category going up on stage accepting their trophy and giving their acceptance speech. For those of you who didn’t make for the award night, see it with your very own eyes to feel it! But for those of you who made it, relive the moment! 🙂

I’m so very sorry I didn’t get Xia Xue’s acceptance speech during the receipt of her Most Influential Blog Award & Best Original Blog Design Award. This is because the boyfie went to the Gents and brought the videocam along wtf. I hope he video-ed interesting moments in the Gents to make up for my rage of not getting to video BOTH XiaXue’s acceptance speeches! (okay love, I’m obviously kidding about your video-ing other men in the restroom wtf)
So I shot these 3 piccies instead, just before the announcement of the finale of Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2009! Check out Kenny giving the smirk when I took his picture. Nervous anot wei?
And the winner was XiaXue for yet another Award! She let out a loud squeal when her named was announced.
I’m actually quite happy she won. She’s sucha diva and a real b!tch at times but that’s what makes me love her. Oh well, you do need a lil drama in your lives dontcha? 🙂
