Aight this is it! Since most of you guys were anticipating more piccies from the Nuffnang Regional Blog Awards night, Imma put this up first as promised! Are you ready?

Kenny & I
with his ‘Best Entertainment Blog’ trophy!
Congrats mannn πŸ™‚

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

As another one of the sponsors of the event would be Canon, we all had the luxury of having our photos instantly developed on the spot after being taken a picture of at the photo wall. Like these!


with the fellow Malaysian Bloggers! m/

Oh and randomly, I initially wanted to wear a long dress to this awards dinner as it kinda reminds me of a prom night. Something grand, glamorous and classy. But then again, I’m now living 300 kilometers away from home so I didn’t have my gown with me T_T

So these were the only 2 which were most appropriate

And as you can see, I chose the former. The reason was kinda because it was new and I wanna break into it for the 1st time hee πŸ™‚ I wore the latter during Valentines already. And much thanks to Diese for doing my hair, there’s tiny plaits at the back you wont be able to see


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!

The bus ride, consisting of 3 buses altogether, managed to ferry us right up to the doorstep of Pan Pacific Hotel in less than 30 minutes. All of us then arrived at the red carpet in style! πŸ™‚

Anyways, the event began with a video of Nuffnang’s milestone and how it all began in the early 2007 days back in Penang woots! I too, remember their 1st Nuffnang gathering in Foodloft gurney plaza with only a handful of bloggers supporting them.

And 2+ years down the road,
Nuffnang puts together this huge event!
With Allan Wu, the host of Amazing Race as our emcee

Nuffnang takes center stage in 2009!

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.

The Asia-Pac Nuffie Family!

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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!

Loved every drop of it.
Smooth creamy soup has always tickled my fancies
Next up for the 3rd course, was the Rosemary Marinated Chicken Breast with Saffron Cheesy Mashed Potato in Balsamic Mediterranean Vege in Mango Coriander Salsa Sauce.

Most of us at the table loved the cheesy mash!
And the chicken was really tender to the bones.

Our entertainment for the evening is from the magic-illusionist couple, JC Sum and Magic Babe Ning! The live band playing was Electrico. Woots for all of them! Oh and since we had to wait quite a bit for the dessert, ducclebears & I began to camho for the fun of it. Don’t mind us – it’s self entertainment πŸ™‚


FINALLY THE DESSERT ARRIVED! Alas, it was a tad too sweet to all tastebuds, but I loved it all the same. Hmm.. I’ll take this as a good excuse to get myself hitting the gym again!

It’s the Praline Hazelnut Gateau with Raspberry Jelly!

See those four sinful layers?
It will go right to your love handles HAAHAHA
(oyeah and mine too T_T)

In between meals, was of course, the video for all the nominees in each category. The categories are as follows : Best Blogshop, Best Food Blog, Best Parenting Blog, Best Geek Blog, Most Influential Blog, Best Entertainment Blog, Best Original Blog Design and lastly, the Best Regional Blog Award.

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! πŸ™‚

Best Hidden Gem

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.


Kenny pulled a Kanye West on her during her Best Blog Design award. You obviously know what Kanye did to Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech did you? Well, our dear Kenny West ran up on stage and grabbed the microphone from XiaXue and parodied it.

Run! Run like the wind, child! πŸ™‚

I then quickly made it in time (yay!) to video the VIDEO OF THE NIGHT. Xia Xue sweeps 3 awards, taking home the Best Regional Blog Award! Wow talk about triple time victory! Now, feast your eyes!

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? πŸ™‚

Congrats, babe! I’m sure Mike is very proud of you
(and I know you’re proud of yourself haha!) πŸ˜›

Okay, this is a very very long post I know haha. But nemmai πŸ™‚ I enjoyed myself hell alot and am glad to have this getaway with all my fellow blogger pals too. Thanks to Nuffnang, Pringles, Canon, Link Hotel, Pan Pacific Hotel, Exabytes and Uniquely Singapore!

And to all the rest of the nominees, congratulations for being nominated. Even if you didn’t bag home the title, chin up! You are still winners anyway for being hand-picked out of the thousands of bloggers out there. If it’s any consolation, I’d kill to be in your place πŸ™‚
