Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards 2009 @ Singapore

It was like a hobby to me.

Sitting right in front of the ‘idiot box’, staring and scrutinizing almost every celebrity who walked onto the red carpet. Such loyal fan to music awards and Oscars.
Here I am, the dream seemed vivid now.

Our red carpet moment
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to my bestie, WeiZhi (Citygal) and also Simon Seow, who invited Chris and I to gain excess to one of my vague reveries, with their creative entries on Pringles.
It was totally an honour to be a part of the blog awards as we get to familiarize with so many top bloggers as well as the celebrities from Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and Philippines. Not to forget Uniquely Singapore who sponsored us accommodation and a full day tour exploring the metropolis and heritage sites of Singapore.
Do bear with me as this post will be brimmed with pictures 😉 Just can’t resist not taking photos with so many beautiful people around us!

Citygal and I checked in first and immediately we have to get ourselves ready for the gala.
How we wish there was a fairy godmother who could transform us right away into a grommed-up Cinderella.

But Citygal and I managed to doll up. Without the fairy godmother.

Snacks served at the reception. Pringles was one of the official sponsor. I lub seaweed flavour!
