The OMY Singapore Blog Awards 2009 Ceremony
Bloggers of all stripes (no lepered prince or jeebras though) gathered at SupperClub last night for the OMY Singapore Blog Awards 2009 ceremony. The theme was "Bedroom" - can you spot the lady in curlers? Sorry for grainy photos. I didn't intend to take any initially, and only had my iPhone with me.
Foreign Minister George Yeo was Guest-of-Honour, and even came early for the event.
Oh, look who crashed the party?
I plonked myself down with Keropokman, Momo, Ladyironchef and his friend. The comfy beds encouraged a laid back vibe. But we were all hungry (hey, food bloggers always are!). From time to time, servers would come with light refreshments, but portions proved too small and infrequent for us.
Pasta served in mini Chinese take-out boxes, which was the more edible of the snacks served (others being middling canapes and deep-fried beef mince balls that were revoltingly mushy). Nope, I guess you don't come to SupperClub for suppers. I'm surprised they dared serve this to the Minister!
This is one of the finalists, I think? I still don't know who it is, but I love the stormtrooper suit!
They gave out Fabrix camera cases. I was amazed that these were made in Singapore. Quality material, individually handcrafted and even has space for two memory cards inside the pouch. Thoughtful design!
Oh and do head on over to Ellena Guan's "Cuisine Paradise" to congratulate her on winning "Best Food Blog" for 2009! She's been blogging a long time (since 2005). I remember seeing her blog way back. It's still as warm and motherly today.
Thank you too, for all of you who put in a vote for me. This has been fun. There are so many good blogs out there, and I'm glad to have discovered many new ones in the OMY Singapore Blog Awards. One of the gems they uncovered is Laukokkok, a 47-year-old guy who writes about old buildings, paraphernalia and all things nostalgic. He won the Best Individual Blog award. Bravo!
