Nuffnang Asia Pasific Blog Awards 2011– The Awesomeness ^^

Hello guys!! ^^ To start this post, my head was banging real hard cause I barely had the time to sleep for the past week. 4 days. 3 days in KL for #napbas and 1 day in Lampung to do some college stuff left me no time to rest (after that continue working). T__T” But I’m super excited to share my experience to be part of Nuffnang Asia Pasific Blog Awards #napbas 2011!

I got the invitation!! Well, me and Stella did, hehe..

Here’s a little explanation about #NAPBAS from the website here:

The Awards aims to honour the crème d la crème of bloggers across the Asia-Pacific region. After 2 months of nominations, voting and campaigning, it will all culminate with the prestigious awards ceremony in Putrajaya, Kuala Lumpur, the bustling capital of Malaysia.

500 bloggers, including the biggest names in the blogosphere from all over Asia-Pacific, will be invited to the gala dinner at Putrajaya Marriott on 16 December 2011, where they will be dazzled by celebrity emcees and talented entertainers well-loved in the region.

Nuff introduction, here comes The Awesomeness..

We (me and Stella) arrived at Marriot Putrajaya Hotel Kuala Lumpur!! The nuffies even picked us up from the KLIA airport, they’re so organized so we won’t be lost, hehe.. It was 2 PM when we arrived at the hotel so we hurried up to prepare ourselves..

Fast forward to almost 6 PM, we’re ready!!!

I decided to keep it simple that night, a black dress and heels. I didn’t even curl my hair, cause I don’t want give more ‘heat’ to my head.. So nervous already cause we’re basically strangers here. We knew nobody there and so scared to the idea that no one will accept and be our friends. Boy, how we were wrong!

At the lobby, we met Tim, the one who invited us in the first place to go to #NAPBAS!

He talked to us and made these nervous girls calm again and introduced us to the crowd. Yay! ^^

IMG_2069_resize

The award event went smooth that night, with 2 MCs, Nadia Heng and Liang.. They’re very interactive with the audience. Awesome!

IMG_2071

The award was opened by the speech from, who else? The 2 co-founders of Nuffnang of course! Ming and Tim!! ^^

Tim even mentioned us bloggers who flew all the way from Indonesia.. Aww.. #sosweet

Their speech was so touching, it really describe how Nuffnang and blogging community evolves together.

I also followed the history of Nuffnang since 2008. I remember it’s about their first paycheck from Nuffnang and I’m surprised that there’s such a blogging advertising community existed. They treated every member like family, that’s what I like.. :’) And now in 2011, wow, look how far we’ve all become! #suddenlyemo

Ok la, nuff emo, let’s check out the fun entertainment we had!

The entertainers that entertained us throughout the night..

IMG_2093_resize

Performance from Reshmonu and James Baum..

A very artistic photo of him.. He was standing next to Pupe when I took this photo..

IMG_2112_resize

A standup comedy performance by Harith Iskander aka Botak! He’s a top Malaysian standup comedian and he’s hillarious! He was talking about the differences about Malaysian and Singaporean (no offense guys), the other side of Bruno Mars ‘Grenade’ song and many more.. So funny a! We were laughing hard for sure, LOL..XD There’s also performance from Viva Circus to accompany our evening.

Anddd…. We have the winners!! CONGRATZ!!!
