Nuffnang Blog Awards, Here I Come


December 16 is a special day to a lot of people.

Payday for the working class. Start of the Filipino 9-day Christmas midnight mass.  And do you care to know that it’s the birthday of music genius Ludwig Van Beethoven?  Well, there’s a Yahoo group for fans of this great composer with a current membership of 500 plus.

For bloggers like me, especially for Nuffies, it’s OUR DAY! Come 16 December 2011, 500 bloggers from around the Asia-Pacific region will flock to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011 in Putrajaya Marriott. The Awards aims to not only honour the region's best bloggers, but also to bring together blogger communities from across Asia-Pacific. The Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards is brought to you by Volkswagen Malaysia and Putrajaya Marriott.

It would really be a blast to be part of this amazing event for many reasons.  Here’s my top 3 Ys on why I want to attend the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011:

You just have to be there.  It’s like the Christmas day of bloggers where all people seem to be jolly and gifts and freebies are everywhere.  It’s the time of the year when we raise a toast and give recognition to the finest bloggers of this side of the world.  So many faces, so many races different voices, different choices--- bloggers of all sorts of shapes and sizes will gather in one momentous event.  And I want to be part of the festivities and witness the The Event at first hand!

Yodel on top of at least one of the Petronas Towers.  It there is one place that I want to see if I’ll be granted a chance to go on an overseas trip, it would be Kuala Lumpur to see the majestic Petronas Twin Towers--- the world’s tallest twin buildings.  The main reason why I want to see this pair of 1500-feet skyscrapers is that I wanted to experience the same joy and excitement that my late brother Jimmy felt when he visited Malaysia a few years ago.  I can still remember the smile on his face whenever he talks about his trip to the country, the awesome towers and the friendly people.  I know with this chance, I can relive some of the great memories my Jimmy told me… breath the same air, walk the same ground and be amazed with the same wonders he got to experience before he left us.

Yell out my blog’s name while walking on the red carpet. This year has been a very great year for me as a blogger for the reason that I have won numerous blog contests and online promotions.  But of all the victories, I am very proud most of my four winnings in the many blog contest conducted by Nuffnang Philippines this year.  I have also won two of their blog contest last year. And I just hope the cherry on top of this very fruitful year is the chance to walk on the red carpet of the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011, meet fellow bloggers from other countries and learn a thing or two from the best of the best.

You see, this yuppie can yank a yammer of a list of why I am yapping and yowling for a yellow ticket to the coolest blog awards of the year.  But yeah, I don’t want to sound that I’m like yelping--- yet.
