It’s kind of nice to see huge sponsors supporting the blog industry. I hope to see that one day in the Philippines.

The event was flocked with people, which is a good thing since we were outside. There was a photo booth at the back with various signs for picture taking. They also served food for anyone who might get hungry along the way.

Joker wins an award!

And unexpectedly, our very own Joker won for his costume!

This is Joker Noks of Siningfactory.com

Nothing like a little Filipino pride amidst all the Singaporeans. LOL.

Nah, it was really his costume. I really admire him for his confidence in wearing Joker. We had to take a taxi back to his hotel because he felt too shy to walk around. But he did ride the Singapore Flyer with his costume. It was awesome!

Congratulations to all the winners!
