The first Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards was held on 23rd October 2009 at the Grand Ballroom of Pan Pacific Singapore. I just realized that I have too many photos to write in my usual verbose (some just call it long-winded) full-fledged event coverage style so:
Like a scrotum here it is in a nutshell! ;)
Registration! Spot Carol (MY), Raine (SG) and Pinky (AU) behind the desk! Hanis (in white) was with me on the bus, thought I went on the wrong one.
Here’s Jestina and Rina behind the (very long) registration desk.
This is the Australian contingent at the wall where you can take photos courtesy of Canon.
I always feel (slightly) better about my height when I stand next to Audrey. ;)
I. Must. Resist. Pulling. Audrey’s. Tiny. White. Cap. Off.
Tim and Ming with the rest of the Nuffies did a great job in pulling an event of this scale off.
I also met XiaXue who snagged 3 (!!!) awards that night. We don’t exactly see eye to eye on some issues e.g. substances, so barbed remarks were occasionally exchanged (to be fair I started it first – I think) but seeing her in real life suggests she’s an alright person.
The stage is set…and the Grand Ballroom slowly fills up.
I love these custom made Nuffnang APAC Blog Award candy – it comes with three varients: I (heart) blogging, NN Blog Awards, and the Nuffnang logo.
Cheesie’s reaction after I politely put forth the suggestion of using Cheddie as an ingredient in a cooking experiment.

Natalie. The sheer amount of photos here will probably rape your bandwidth…
I really like this photo. Haha! Nice pose there, Jestina.
Doing the attitude pose with Jojo!
It was an awesome night. Here’s to Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2010! =D
