Thank You, Xie-xie Ni, Terima Kasih!

I know this post is way too late (aside from my temporary job, which took up a lot of my time and energy, super occupied lang po talaga ako during the holidays season this past year kaya please forgive me for late posting) nevertheless I still want to share with you this post-Christmas gift I recently received.

About six months ago I decided to join PEBA and its annual blogging contest for OFWs. I was hesitant at first to submit my blog, Bayani. O Bayani? because I feared I might not be able to meet the standards of the readers as well as the judges. So I was surprised when I got the email from PEBA approving my entry and made me its 7th nominee (it reached the total of 37). PEBA ran a poll to find out who will be crowned the winner of Pinoy Expats/OFW Bloggers Award 2009 and despite the lack of publicity, more than a thousand Filipinos around the globe read my blog and voted for me. And I’d like to take this opportunity to thank these people who believed in me, including the judges, because I was ranked Top 5 in the recently concluded Pinoy Expats/OFW Bloggers 2009 Awards Night.

Maraming Salamat Po Sa Inyong Lahat!

I would also like to thank the founder of PEBA , Kenji and all the people behind it, particularly LordCM and AZEL who were so patient to remind and encourage me to send even one friend/relative to represent me, kahit na madalas ay delay ang reply ko. Their efforts gave me a hunch though that I would bring home an award. And yes, I was right. I felt bad na hindi po ako nakapunta sa awarding and nobody was present to take the award for me, but I’m sincerely happy for all the winners, most especially to NEBZ for ranking 1st.




So now I wonder how to get my trophy? Gusto ko na siyang mahawakan…tsk! 🙂

      Salamat Jem. Di ko rin naman in-expect na makakapasok ako sa Top 5. Try mo. You’re a good and sensible writer so I think may laban ka sa mga ganitong contest 🙂
