My third time in Cebu is very memorable and should I say ‘historical’ because I witnessed the first ever Philippine Blog Awards ’09 Visayas Leg last October 19 at Ayala City Sports, Cebu City. The event was well-attended by Cebu-based bloggers, PBA Organizers, volunteers, press and media from the Queen City of the South.
Ada and I booked a flight to Cebu last month via Zestair (and I regret my choice of airline LOL). We originally wanted to go to Cebu then take an hour ride to Bohol for Saturday and go back to the City by Sunday morning to attend the awards night at the evening. Plans changed due to the weather reports and lack of funds 😛
Our first day in Cebu with some of our Manila blogger friends is made of pure win. I got the chance to patch up with Pangga couple Hana and Markku, who were my former workmates (that deserves another blog entry hehe). We got the chance to gallivant around the city and visit Talisay, Kuya Markku’s hometown.
Let’s go back to the awards night 😛 After eating our lunch at Mooon Cafe, Ada, Winston, Van and I went to the venue to simply check the place. We went back to our hotel room at Sampaguita Suites to sleep (yes, sleeping in Cebu is a great experience! haha). We dressed up at around 5pm and went straight to Ayala City Sports for the awards night.
The 2009 Philippine Blog Awards (Luzon) was held at PETA-PHINMA Theatre last Friday, October 9. I went to the venue straight from the office and got the chance to go around and meet some old and new faces in the blogosphere.
First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone who took time and voted for Micamyx.com as their choice for the Bloggers’ Choice! Honestly, I was a bit hesitant when I received a nomination from three people for the Personal category. Unfortunately, IÂ failed to enter the final list 😛 I received another nomination for the Bloggers’ Choice award and upon reading the requirement which is to make a post indicating your intention, I decided to give it a try. There’s no harm in trying, right? And your co-bloggers will be the ones to judge this time and yes, I really want to win =)
