Brunei Travel Video and Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011
This is Besides the point: But my One Day in Transit Brunei Travel Video is lower down in this post, be sure to check it out, I had 8 hours before my flight, a hungry stomach and my camera in hand. A recipe for bored creativity. There are also some great tracks from local Pinoy indie artist from Number Line Records (http://numberlinerecords.com). Notably, Love in Athens, ModuloGeek and Multo. This is all about Pinoy Pride anyways.
CLICK THE BANNER!
So I’ve been nominated to represent the Philippines at the annual Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011 in the category of best Food Blog of South East Asia. Pretty rad right (don’t mind me I’ve just always wanted to try to bring back the word rad)? Well that’s what i thought!
http://awards.nuffnang.com/2011/votes Vote for me here (tonight and before 27/11/11) to be selected the best food blogger in South East Asia! Let’s make the Philippines kick some serious butt.
At first I was wondering why I’d be selected to be the best food blog in the country (no fake modesty here – seriously), I’m not a food blog that posts very often, in fact I can go two weeks without posting anything, I don’t give insights into restaurants and don’t belive myself a critic and I certainly don’t go around surgically attached to my camera (like most food bloggers), snapping away at food to post it online, not caring if it gets cold, oh god no. If I do take pictures of food, it’s really so that I can remember what it taste like and adapt the recipe to something original once I get home. I guess the main difference between me and other food enthusiast is that I don’t just want people to read my rants, complaints and praises, I want people to participate and interact with the food I present to them and have them look at food under a whole different light. That’s probably why I was chosen, I’m the non-food blogger, food blogger, who doesn’t like to be called a blogger. If that makes sense. It does to me, and if you’ve been reading me for a while now, it probably does to you too.
An entertaining post for me is, an awesome video, sensical writing, a killer soundtrack with music I’ve just discovered, a personal food recipe, memories of dishes I’ve eaten and the realisation that we are all fat kids in the inside.
So I will be flying out to Malaysia on December 16th to attend the award ceremony, why not? its free, fun and if i get bored, i’ll just sneak out and eat all the best Malaysian street food i can get my hands on and I’ll make a self-proclaimed travel video about it!
More importantly, it would be awesome to win this one for the Philippines!
So if you want to see a video, like the one, hereunder, i just made about my one day in Brunei, or if you want to give this Filipino food blog and fighting international chance, or if you actually like what i do, or even if you just feel like clicking stuff today, vote for me on this link: (please?)
