It was one the biggest Nuffnang events ever, it's the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011! It's equivalent to the Oscars for the blogsphere. 550 bloggers from 10 countries flying in to attend it: Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Australia, Thailand, Hong Kong, China, Brunei and even as far as Japan.
It was pretty awkward for me to brave it all alone as I'm not really the sociable type. Sometimes I would take forever to get warm to someone. So, I just stood there pretending to be some life sized statue until I gathered enough courage to talk to a few bloggers.

My initial plan was to meet the bloggers that I've always been following and maybe had some pictures taken with them.I saw Wendy Cheng, Ringo Tan, Ken Wooi and Cindy Tey but I was simply too shy to approach them.
I met this lovely young lady named Clarice (I hope I get her name right). She reminded me of my teen self. She's so bubbly and very much an enthusiast. Too bad she couldn't infect me with some of them.
Congrats to all of the winners
