Its already been 2 years since the first Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards was held at Singapore.
But well, In 2011, the tremendous day has come where Nuffnang awards were once again presented to the winners and it was held with a big bang at Marriot Hotel, Putrajaya, Kuala Lumpur.
Time flies so fast as I could still remember the previous blog awards which happened 2 years ago. Memories that were cherished there will always be remembered. If you haven't seen it, You can check out the posts Here and Here
Nuffnang has spread over many countries and many bloggers from the various countries came over to witness the awesome Asia Pacific Blog Awards! Various categories for the awards were listed out and the nominees had been voted for by the public.
The day started off with Jolyn and I heading over to Marriott Putrajaya at 4pm as Jolyn won the hairdo makeover. It took about 30 minutes to do up her hair and well, it was beautiful but still lacked in hair volume.

The day was still young as The reception was only to start at 6pm. Jolyn and I chilled at the lounge where we had great illy coffee and a tiramisu cake.
The cute Lilmejo!
As time started to fly, bloggers started pouring into the hotel where there was a cocktail reception in front of the grand ballroom. As usual, We mingled around getting to know new faces, seeing old familiar faces and having tonnes of photos taken!
