Philippine Blog Awards : where the biggest and brightest Blogging stars meet

Mar Roxas, senator and blogger, said during his key note speech tonight, September 21, 1972; marked the end of all forms of freedom including the right to expression. This was the exact day when Martial Law was announced in the Philippines.

Fast forward 36 years after in 1 Esplanade and with more than a hundred bloggers present, we celebrated a momentous occasion highlighting the importance of the greatest form of expression possible where one may write freely and pour out his deepest emotions where no one will stop them.

My friends, it was the 2nd Philippine Blog Awards night. Arriving at the venue a bit early, Paul and I briefly lined up to register and to get our kits. We entered the beautiful function hall and said our HIs and HELLOs to my fellow bloggers. We enjoyed the yummy cocktail food served by Josiah's Catering while waiting for the program to start. Oh boy! We love the Crispy Fish Strips with Spicy Garlic Sauce! Yummy!

At exactly 630PM, the program began. I was delighted to watch my blogger friends AJ and Tiffany host the show while Jayvee, who worked so hard for this event to happen, delivered his speech. Bravo and Brava!

A BIG congratulations also to ALL the winners!
