Nuffnang Blog Award 2009
"Just look at all the flashing lights and smile" :D

Because Claire and I was considered one of last few to arrive at the event, we did not the chance to take the official photo against the backdrop at the end of the red carpet. So after the event, we decided to take one before we go home and it was captured by one of the official photographer! (: Love this photo!

By the way, I got a sad story to tell... The reason I took almost a week to come up with my award post is because... I have to wait for others to send me each and everyone of the photo. The reason is, my camera sucks. Sad right :( *Sob*
So here's your chance to help me win a Canon camera!
See this "I like it" widget below? All you have to do is to click it, and you just brought me one step closer to winning a brand new spanking Canon camera!

Thanks if you clicked it! If you haven't, what are you waiting for :(

Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards 2009


Finally I'm blogging about the Awards! It has been almost a week since the Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog awards was held. It was one of the most anticipated event of the year! Everyone was looking forward to the arrival of 23rd October!

About 2 weeks before the awards, Nuffnang extended their invitation for me to attend the event. Of course, I have to do my part by doing the Pringles and the Uniquely Singapore post! You can read them HERE and HERE!

One week before the event, Claire and I was busy shopping for our outfit for the awards! She had to get her cocktail dress, I have to get my Blazer, my shoes ++ On the actual day itself, Claire even went to a salon to set her hair (:

After preparation, we went to Orchard to have a quick bite before cabbing down to Pan Pacific Singapore. The cab fare is damn expensive, because there was a huge traffic jam :( All because of some Big shot traveling around SG lor! Irritating.

We reached around 7.45pm, registered at the counter and were assigned table 9 with familiar faces like Shawn, Jessica, Esther, Typicalben, Randy etc (:

On the table was a little door gift for everyone. Handmade sticky candies! On each candy were printed things like, "I blogging", "Nuffnang Awards" or the Nuffnang logo (: Super unique, and not forgetting they taste damn nice too! *Slurp!*

The event officially started with an interesting Milestone video and a speech by co-founder Tim and Ming! It feels like their are getting married! AHAHAHHAA

It was then followed by a performance by J C Sum & 'Magic Babe' Ning! Our table can only look from the projector screen as we were seated at the side :(

Checkout the 4 course dinner!



Menu
- Marinated Smoked Tuna with Feta, Herb salad and Balsamic Olive Oil.
- Light Cream of Asparagus and Green peas topped with a Chive Mousseline.
- Rosemary Marinated Chicken Breast with blah blah blah. (Super long!)
- Praline Hazelnut Gateau with Raspberry Jelly.
The food look damn appetizing right! I only did minimal photoshop to them (:

Electrico also performed at the event! The speaker was blasting at our ears >=/

Look at the trophy for the winners! So chio!!! Oh ya, but now you should know who are the winners for each category already right?

I lazy to type out everything, but if you want to know who are the winners, you can checkout the official awards WEBSITE (:

A group photo with bloggers from Singapore and Malaysia (:

Yes, I'm going to end this post abruptly! Some of you may wonder if I never take a photo with the other bloggers meh... I did! Just that there is too many photos, so I'm going to blog another post with all the photos I took with other bloggers! (:

Skincare 101

Ever since school started, my skin has been getting from bad to worse. Although people always say I got nice skin, if you look closer, it's actually not that nice.

The thing is that, I'm super lazy to wash my face with all those little bottles of things (Toner? What's that?!) Can't rinsing with water do the job? There is like so many brands out there, so I decided to twitter:

I'm going to tell you all a secret! Ok lah, it's not really a secret since most of you know that bloggers photoshop their face. Photoshop is like our best friend. Ya, so the secret is... WAIT. Did i just spill the secret?! =/

Photoshop really works wonders, see!

Amazing right! There is so many things you can do with Photoshop, you can like add volume to your hair, add colour contacts, sharpen your nose, smoothen your skin and many more! So you should never believe what you see online (:

BUT the thing is, when people see you in real life, they can see the difference between your online self and your real self. That's why we should take good care of our skin, so we look presentable in both online and offline! That’s also why, I decided to place my skin in the good hands of my real secret – a little green fruit.

WAIT. What green fruit?! To find out, check back here early November!!!

Ice cream buffet at Orchard Ion!

Yes, it's another Food post! I'm such a "Food blogger"! Muahaha

Remember I did a post on ice cream buffet before? Nah, I think you all forget already. Nevermind, Click HERE to read it (: This time I'm introducing another ice cream buffet in Singapore, and it's much better,more exciting and worth the $$!

If you know me well enough, I'm a BIG HUGE fan of Junk food (P/s: It's stated in my 10 things you don't know about me!) Everytime i go places like Seoul Garden, the part that i look forward to would be the dessert! I ♥ Ice cream, cakes & many more!

Here are the main characters of the day! From the left: Manda, Me, Hui xin (tipping toe trying to look tall), Rinn and Yihan (: We were thinking of a place to celebrate Manda's birthday and why not we try the new Swensons ice cream buffet?

Here's the price for the Dessert buffet! Considered quite reasonable for unlimited servings of cakes, waffles, ice creams and many more for just 1 price!

It would be cheaper if we order some food. Since we haven't had our lunch, plus it would be quite bad for the stomach if we were to have dessert before having proper food, we ordered some main courses (: *Drools*


P/s: I almost died photoshopping the food to make it look nicer!

Moving on to the Dessert buffet part! The Menu is so colourful and nice, like for kids or the young at heart! They have over 50 fantastic flavours of ice cream, Over 40 toppings, sauces, Waffles, Pancakes, Wonderful dessert treats and many more!

First stop: Cakes! (Yes.. my wonderful camera sucks, anyone wanna get me a LX3?) There is like 8 different kinds of cakes to try! There is like Oreo cheesecake, carrot cake(?!), Chocolate cake and many more to choose from! (: I the tiramisu!

Notice the Chocolate fondue at the side? It's part of the buffet! We get to poke Strawberries, Marshmallows or Cream puffs into this long stick and...

Dip it into the Chocolate Fountain!

Rinn's artistic creation. Trying to act like those dessert at those Atas restaurant.

Next up! Waffles and Pancakes! They are made on the spot! I actually intend to eat it together with my ice cream but i keep eating while queuing up for the ice cream =/ End up i finished everything before i even got the ice cream! But it's unlimited! (:

Last stop: Ice cream! There is really A LOT of flavours to choose from! We were super spoilt for choice and fickle minded. We get to choose a maximum of 4 scoops for each time we queue up to minimize food wastage! After getting the ice cream...

Btw, I chose Strawberry and lime sherbet, Sticky chewy chocolate & Milo! (:

Time to decorate the ice cream with Whipped cream, toppings and many more!



Are you ready to see the end result of our ice cream?

Hui Xin's Fruity sherbet ice cream! Lots of Logan, peach and honey stars(?!)

Manda & Rinn's ice cream! A mixture of everything including Polky sticks(?!)

Clear winner! My creation that looks that best! I can work as a Sundae designer le! *Flicks hair* Don't you think it's really nice? with Cherries, malt balls, waffles!

Not forgetting to camwhore with our food!


Oh ya, Food blogger always like to end their post with a rating review on the food/ the place they go, I shall do the same too! Since i'm andystorm, I shall use lightning bolts as my ratings! Swensons dessert buffet gets...

4 out of 5 lightning bolts!
