… aka NAPBAS. I was there ‘cos I was one of the 5 finalists for the ‘Best Micro Blog‘ category.
The awards was held this past Friday at the Putrajaya Marriott. I’ve been to the hotel before but only during daytime. Plus I left from a new place so I wasn’t very sure of my directions. So I ended up touring Putrajaya city, went on both Putrajaya bridges and rounded the city a few times because Malaysian road signs are: 1) inefficient and lead you to big useless rounds, and 2) blocked from view thanks to massive trees.
Really Kerajaan, thank you. Loved the nearly 2 hours joyride. Really.
Anyway, managed to reach there just in the nick of time.
Met many familiar faces, mostly known each other via blogging from a few years back. It’s (still very much so) a fantastic community 🙂
Then my category came up. Wah they did this big screen thing:
Damn shiok man, I felt a tingling down my spine. Quite a thrill really to see yourself on a massive projection like that. And for reasons not related to crime… best! 😛
I didn’t win, Kenny Sia did. So sad, mostly because I would have liked a new digital camera, sob sniff.
Though I’ve to say, I had fun at the awards thanks to the company 🙂 Also, it’s not everyday that you get to pose in a photo like this:
Best ever! 😀 By the way, if you’d voted for me, thanks yah. Really appreciate it 🙂
