Yesterday I attended the Singapore Blog Awards 2011 held at Shanghai Dolly at Clarke Quay. I hadnâ€™t expected the place to be so packed, but packed it sure was. I was just glad to be able to snag one of the last few bar seats available. Quite a number of enthusiastic bloggers also dressed up as historical characters in line with the theme of the event.
Hereâ€™s me dressed up asâ€¦ummmâ€¦ myself.
See, packed! There was tons of food provided, like Dominoâ€™s pizza and other light bites. Also free flow of soft drinks and Tiger Beer Crystal. Iâ€™ve never been to Shanghai Dolly at night before. Wonder what thatâ€™s like.

Major-General (NS) Chan Chun Sing, Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports and also the youngest member of the Cabinet at only 42 was the guest of honour for the day. Not too sure what other events he gets invited to, but the Singapore Blog Awards must surely be one of the most unique ones he has attended! I hope he maintains his interest in reading all our blogs well beyond this event!
Hereâ€™s a closer look at the Singapore Blog Award 2011 winners. For the complete list of winners, do go to the Singapore Blog Awards website.
Thanks once again to Omy for the invite!
