OMY Singapore Blog Awards 2010

I hardly ever write such straight forward titles, except on nights early mornings (2am) like these when I'm all bleary-eyed and dying to crawl into bed, and the turning wheels in my brain are significantly slowing down. -chug chug chuggggg.

Let's go straight to the pictures, shall we? 

So the blog award ceremony which I was pulling votes for, happened earlier this evening at St James Powerstation, a huge night entertainment hub. The finalists of each category were invited, and what an eye-opener it was for me!

I didn't really know what to expect, but was definitely blown away by some of the oscar-deserving outfits dorned. I almost felt underdressed in a simple LBD (little black dress) but was comforted by the boyfriend who was wearing jeans. Heh heh.

So there was the customary red carpet and interviewing of the handpicked finalists by the media..

Spot AiClay! :)

This is the boyfriend at the buffet tables. Is this his first appearance? I haven't kept count, hmm.

This was my view for most of the time, behind the official videographer and his bulky video-camera and tripod. The throng of people made it hard to find a good standing spot (seats were all taken really quickly, sigh), and certainly didn't help that I'm all of 150cm! :(

 Blogo is played pretty much like Bingo, except that blogs' names are called out instead. And look at who was in the middle (most crucial position if you know how Bingo's played!) spot for some of the cards! :)

In case you're wondering, no I didn't win at Blogo. Hardly filled any of the squares in fact! 

Smart-aleck me decided to slap the yellow myblogis sticker on my arm. Now my arm has a star-shaped cleanly-waxed patch of skin.


All thanks to the misty fog produced at almost all nighttime avenues, most of my photos came out smoky, like the one below. I will choose clarity over mystery anytime, thank you very much.

 Don't whoop for joy yet! I didn't win the award, this was just the host going through the top ten finalists of each category. :)


This is turning out to be one narcissistic post, ain't it! I promise, less of me, more of miniature food in the next few entries! :)

Also, I want to thank everyone that has voted for me, and those who had wanted to but couldn't because you weren't Singaporean. It meant a lot, and even though I didn't win, I now honestly understand it isn't just well-concealed sour-grapes when the non-winners (i refuse to call them/us losers) say "It doesn't matter if I got the award, to be nominated is to already have won".

Okay, the wheels in my head have officially stopped turning. I'm off to bed y'all, good night! :)
