When we arrived in Singapore the evening of 23rd October, due to some mishap at the immigration (due to some bloggers who just couldn't follow instruction), we only have 2 hours to get ready. As the bus would arrived at 6pm, we had to be ready by then. The check-in took nearly 45 minutes as it was a group check-in with all of the bloggers from Philippines and Australia checking in with us.
As the Nuffies were busy with checking in, my wife was busy asking around whether there are any manicurist around as she consider her nails were not good enough. It was also only then I also realised I forgot my cufflinks. After all the drama, we managed to dress ourselves and joined the other bloggers albeit 5 minutes late.
Here some pictures of the bloggers waiting to be sent to the Pan Pacific Hotel, Singapore where the event was held :

Actually, during the event, I neglected to really take any picture except for these few pictures. If you want to see better postings, especially those dedicated to certain aspect of the awards, here are some of them :
How Pink Stillettos saw it
- The nominee Red Mummy reporting
- Madam Kwon reporting
- Swee San's reporting on the food
- My table buddy Julian Hopkin's blog which include the whole tour
- And this one by Shazwani has a picture of my wife - Picture galore
I was sure that I have quite a few pictures missing but still looking for them. I think you can get the gist of what happened during the dinner at the blogs I linked above. It was a great event and for something which involved massive logistics like that, it was a success. Congratulations to Nuffnang and hope they will make it annually so that more people can come and see what it is all about. Maybe one day it can even be telecast live!
