In conjunction with their second anniversary, Nuffnang proudly presented their first ever Regional Blog Awards held at the prestigious Pan Pacific Singapore Grand Ballroom on October 23rd 2009.
We were there to witness the 3 days and 2 nights grand affair where 400 bloggers were there to celebrate the glory night. The event was sponsored by Pringles, and not forgetting Canon, Link Hotel, AsiaPRWerks and.. Exabytes, of course 🙂
The glorious night was kicked off with welcoming speeches from Bossming and Timothy (Nuffnang Co-Founder). Oh and did we mention that celebrity Alan Wu was the host of the event? Yes he was! 😀
Anyway, we were then served with a series of food courses that undoubtedly fed our hungry stomachs! 😛 They were very delicious too! As we were having our meals, winners of the Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards were announced.

Before the dinner started, we all mingled outside at the cocktail reception taking lots of pictures of each other.
They had colorful Pringles (the main sponsor for the event!) of various flavors everywhere outside of the ballroom for us to munch.
Everyone was given this mini jar of customized rock candy. It comes with three variants: I (heart) blogging, NN Blog Awards, and the Nuffnang logo.
Priddy cool eh? 🙂
