PPS Neophyte Blog of the Year: A Million Thanks!

At the very last minute, I decided to go to the PPS Birthday Bash last night. Sorry Aizuddin, for not registering at the VOIWiki and pre-ordering my food!

But the desire to meet the heavyweight bloggers who inspire me on a daily basis was too much for me - Jeff Ooi (the greatest blogger in Malaysia), MackZul (for saying it as it is), Aizuddin (no Aiz, no PPS) and TV Smith (his blog got me started). (but 5xmom wasn't coming...)

(Yeah, and also to pick up my PPS T-shirts and save on the posting charges!)

I sincerely never thought I would win, as I was up against some really popular blogs, Mudpond and Jaded. So when they announced my name for the Neophyte award, i was really stunned and was practically speechless (yeah, those who were there can attest to that...!)

Many, many thanks to all who nominated for me, and for those who voted for me... A million thanks, and your support and readership means the world to the lowly-paid construction man who also happens to blog... (I'm refering to me, if you didn't catch that... :)

(sorry to everyone for the 'no photos', i really dont want to be a bother but I really owe people a lot of money, so I have to stay anonymous! So thanks to sixthseal, leona and minishorts for obliging.)

Congrats to Kenny and Jeff for their awards! Mine was only a khe-leh-feh award, theirs were the big ones!

(by the way, pilotwings, :p !

  • Hi "Simple" Simon

  • congrats for the win, simon. hey, although i was there, i did not notice you (and you didn't notice me of course). too many people i guess.

    it's good that i read others' post first before i posted my say because i too have taken a photo of you accepting the award. in this way, i realised you do not wish to show your mug shot, so i did not include that shot of yours in my online album which i made public.
