For the 2nd time around, Chasing Philippines has been recognized as one of the Finalists for Best Travel Blog – National Level. *gives myself a big smile while doing a masigabong palakpakan for my official blog partners – my laptop and my Nikon D60*
Well, the good news was delivered by Marky Ramone Go of NomadicExperiences.com. It was a Sweet 1st Day of December when I received a notification that he tagged me in one of his posts in PTB’s Facebook Page. At first, I did not approve the post since I was quite hesitant why I was tagged in the first place. I even thought that that was a list of 2010’s finalists for the same category. I am not really expecting to be included in the finalists not even to be one of the nominees for this year. I rarely went out this 2011 since I enjoyed my hibernation stage so much. See related post here. 😛
Nothing to do, I clicked on the link and checked the threads…
… Still Buffering…
The post was updated December 1, 2011. Thousands of “Is this for real? OMG! OMG!” bombarded my mind. Then came the official invitation from Philippine Blog Awards to attend the event at Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Bldg in Makati City. I just cant believe it.
To RCBC and Beyond!!!
Gang Badoy of RockEd Philippines hosted the event.
