After weeks of voting and judging by the judges,
the 10 winners in the 10 main categories
and 4 winners from the 4 sponsored categories has emerged, today!

Before i annouced the winners,
here are some of the details about this year's Singapore Blog Awards 2011(x

This year theme is about History Gets Social and we are encouraged to dress up in historial characters for the ceremony.
But sadly, i didnt as im not sure what to wear and how to doll up myself.
Another reason is this is my first time being invited, as a guest, to attend such a Huge event organised by OMY
I felt so honoured to be invited by OMY(;
Millions ♥♥s to you, ♥OMY♥

In the end, i chose a super simple clothing.
A spaghetti strap black tank tops with a blue boyfriend shirt as an outerwear
with a short-cum-skirt bottom.

Seriously, i cant made up my mind cause this IS MY FIRST EVER EVENT with OMY.
Previously did attend a few movie premieres from Nuffanag.
The first thing i thought to myself was, 'How am i going to survive an event full of "STRANGERS" ?'
Now, i can tell you the verdict: 'Keep yourself away from "STRANGERS". Dont act as though u know them even though, after all they are famous bloggers.'
There's one phrase which can be my evidence for this verdict:
My twitter post: 'i feel super lonely.'

Im a good girl who doesnt wasted any $$ on taxi.
Know why i say that ??
When i reached Shanghai Dolly, which is located at the end of Trader's Market, in between Tan Tye Place and River Valley Road.
Not far from Shanghai Dolly, there's a taxi stay whereby most of the guests and finalists walked towards the destination straight from the taxi stand.

Blue indicates the taxi stand
Red indicates Shanghai Dolly

Its not im 'complaning' or 'jealous' that they're 'rich' or something,
but i can say that i envious them.
I know, some may be asking 'For what envious them ?'
Well, to me, taking taxi means either you're late or you're lazy to take public transport.
& i will think 'Why dont u just get a license and buy a car which is even convenient than hailing a cab ?'
No offense to all who took taxi to the veune but this is just my point of view.

Going back to the actual topic,
i took public transport to Clarke Quay station, walked through Read Street,
you will come to a 'water playground' which is similar like bugis junction.

Walked further down, you will see a taxi stand, turn left walked further down to the end of the road and there you have it, SHANGHAI DOLLY.

Everyone was waiting patiently to get themselves registered as either a guests, by invitation or a finalist.
Took super lots of photos when i stepped into the hall.

But my camera had a lousy focus and the hall was slightly dark cause Shanghai Dolly was a pub thus the lighting were dimmed.
When i took the pictures, here's how it look liked:

This bottle of wine caught my eye from afar.
I forgot what are the words but its a best selling wine or something.

Even when hosts, GOH, performers were on stage, the pictures are still the same
as follows:

Need to invest on a good camera.

After registration, a beautiful lady gave me a lucky draw ticket, a booklet and a strap over my hand.

When i got in, i was attracted by the scrumptious food

and a waiter walked up to me and served drinks.
There's orange juice, cola, sprite and bottles of tiger beer.
From my perspective: the best beer is Carlsberg, not Tiger Beer xP

When i entered, i found a seat which is in a corner, not far from the stage
but was blocked by a wall. WTF!
When everytime there's someone on stage to receive the award or performance,
i need to walk a distance to find a perfect spot to snap the photos.

Once i got in, i just sat down on my place
and never move around, beside taking pictures and walking over to grab a bite.
You can say im 'being' isloated but i was enlighten when i saw ben and esther.
Both of them are my aspired bloggers, i was like a fan waiting to get a shot with them(x

After seconds, minutes and hours of anticipation, it paid off(x

Was overjoyed, ecstatic.
Words really cant expressed it all.

its the final part of the event which most events will have - Lucky Draw.
They have a lot to give away but my aim was the $20/$50 Captial Land Vouchers and teh Asus Lamborghini Razor Wireless Mouse.
They have 2 vouchers to give away and 7wireless mouse.
So zuper egg-cited.

In the end, i didn get the vouchers but there's still the Wireless Mouse.
I thought to myself 'If i didn get the mouse, i have to leave.'
Not becuase im upset or anything but i have a family dinner to attend.

When they have given out 4wireless mouse, i thought to myself, fingers cross,
'please let me win please let me win'.
Ohh, here's my lucky draw no.:0114 (go&buy 4D if you wan)

'0114', goes the sound, annouced by the MC.
I was astonished, i walked up the stage, holdin onto my ticket.
Received from the Asus Manager, i guess.
&walked back down the stage.

I really didn know i was so damn lucky.
After which, a worker told me to go over to the registration to sign a receipt.
SO, without hesitation,
i grabbed my bag and stormed out, with the wireless mouse on my left hand.

But still, its 'Made From China' DOTZ...

Still im ecstatic to have won such an 'expensive' wireless mouse(x
