I got a phone call while I was sleeping just now.

Fresh: Did I wake you up?
Me: Yeah, but it’s okay. What’s up?
Fresh: I just want to tell you right….you’ve been selected as a finalist for the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards in the Best Lifestyle Blog category.
Me: (stunned silence)
Me: (incoherent happy blabber)
Fresh: Erm…that was not the reaction I expected.
Me: (continues blabbering happily)

…and then I dropped back to sleep coz I was volunteering for a soup kitchen till the wee hours of the morning last night.

soup kitchen

I don’t even know if I dreamt it at first when I woke up the second time. *inception music

I looked at my email and…

best lifestyle blog


Thank you all for nominations everyone! You totally made my day, week and year. :D :D :D

I’ve been blogging for a long time now. I started in April 2002 back when I was studying in Melbourne. Why should you vote for me in the Best Lifestyle Blog category?

Well, I do a lot of crazy shit like the above and it’ll be nice to know that I’m risking arrest to provide you with quality content and my work is appreciated. smirk

Browse through the Best of category and have a look around if you’re not familiar with my blog and if you like what you see, I’ll very appreciative if you could cast a vote for me.


Two years ago, I sat #foreveralone at the tables while I watched the nominees win.

This year, I have a shot at going up on stage.

It is admittedly a long shot, but with your help, maybe, just maybe, I’ll be standing up there at the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011.

The voting period starts from 15th November and will end on the 27th November. I’m under the category Best Lifestyle Blog.


Vote for me please?
