The biggest blog event of the year, the Singapore Blog Awards 2011 is here. The event is organised by, a bilingual news and interactive web portal by leading media group Singapore Press Holdings Ltd.

The Singapore Blog Awards 2011 consist of 10 main awards categories, 4 sponsored awards categories and 2 celebrity awards categories.

Are you excited for the result?

The event was held at Shanghai Dolly which is located near Clarke Quay. That was my first time patronizing the club.

We joined up the queue for registration. Spotted Janet at the booth.

And the theme for the day was: History Gets Social. Spotted quite a couple of people dressing in historical characters.

There was live performance going on upon entering the theatre hall. Everybody was enjoying themselves watching the performance ♥

Platters of finger food were being served in the event. They were yummy and delicious ♥

By 3pm, the club was already full of people. It was very happening inside. Saw lots of familiar faces everywhere we go. We had an enjoyable time catching up and snapping photos:

Deenise, Tracy, me and Jessie. Deenise was one of the finalists (:

With Sheron. We were sitting at the same table ♥

A photo of me. Didn’t register myself for any of the award category as I felt that my blog still need rooms for improvements. Shall enter the competition next year and be your potential competitor (:

Passing by the guys’ table to catch up with them:

With Hong Peng and Jessie. HP was one of the finalists from under the Best Social Media Integrated Blog.

With Andy aka the Daddy Blogger. He was so amusing, he brought his son’s bag along (:

The host of the event is 阿栋, Radio 1003 DJ (spotted at the right).

And the Guest-of-Honour was Major-General (NS) Chan Chun Sing, Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports and Minister of State for Information, Communications and the Arts.

Don’t be surprised, Minister reads blogs too. He even named a few of them. Socail media platforms like is really one of the ways where you could communicate with youngsters.

Before announcing the 10 main categories award winner, there was a short performance on historical characters prepared for us:

Sang Nila Utama, Cao Cao and Stamford Raffles came out too. Famous people from different eras present at Shanghai Dolly.

So the 3 guys went to find this pretty lady who made pizza. Guess what? This lady turned out to be Abigail – I first seen her on TV was in “Money not enough” movie. Wow, that was like more than 10 years ago. Anyway, the guys were accusing her of putting a pretty photo but she turned out not to be one of them. So she said she was using photoshop, everybody was using photoshop. Lol.

It’s indeed an entertaining performancs.
