Singapore Blog Awards 2012 | Memories from the Blog Event of The Year #SBA2012

Yesterday was the long-awaited Singapore Blog Awards! You all know how I feel about being nominated as one of the finalists in Best Family Blog category from my E-Interview but I'd like to thank all of you that took the time to vote for me.

It was a very nice recognition for my time & effort on Sakura Haruka, and I do appreciate all the support my family, friends and readers have shown me. Veronica wrote me this message,

"You deserve the recognition for all the work on your blog. I admire your focus and efforts to communicate family info and issues to your readers." It is precious words like these that really touches me, and encourages me to continue writing here.{Getting mentioned by GOH Education Minister Mr Heng Swee Keat in his speech was pretty special too ;p}

Met some of my bloggy friends, as well as bloggers from different genres that were nominated in the other categories. Theme for the event was "Superheroes" so kudos to the bloggers that came as Batman, Superman, Poison Ivy, Loki etc.

What was I dressed as? Why, I went as myself of course - Super Mum!! :P

With some of the Casio Sheen bloggers! This is probably the last time we have to take photos with this silly pose hahahahah

On stage for the last portion of my Casio Sheen shining journey - talking about our watches and doing a little catwalk :S

Appreciate the friendships made and such a fun journey :) Hope we get to work together again on other projects...

My dear boy accompanied me to the event. Thanks for being so supportive! Also want to thank my mum for always being there for me and helping to take care of Lil Pumpkin when I had to go for blog events that she couldn't come along to...

Congrats to Leonny for winning the Best Family Blog award! She flew all the way here from Jakarta for the ceremony with her hubby and cutie Brie :) 

Finally got to meet June! As lovely in person as her words on her blog. Hope we get to chat longer soon!

Andy's T-shirt was personalised by his dear kids! They even wrote "I am my kids' Superhero!" at the back of it. So sweet :)

Marcellus was also there.. but he didn't wear his Hulk mask???! haha. Super Family Bloggers FTW!!!  

Congratulations to all the blog awards winners, and I'm looking forward to the next bloggy event! Until then, I hope all the bloggers will still continue to hone their craft to maintain informative and innovative blogs as the "new age wordsmiths"!
