I wasn’t able to attend and send a representative in the recent 2009 Philippine Blog Awards, so I didn’t get my trophy when my blog won the Best Technology Blog category. A couple of days after the awards night I contacted Juned Sunido, one of the organizers of the event, and asked him how I could claim my trophy. At that time he was busy preparing for the next 2 legs of the Philippine Blog Awards that would be held in the Visayas and Mindanao so he wasn’t able to send it right away.
Yesterday morning, a DHL delivery guy came knocking at the door and gave me the package. I knew that the package was sent but I wasn’t expecting it to arrive that day. Anyways, as soon as I saw where it came from I knew what was inside the package. I was very excited that I tore the packaging and immediately took out the contents. After a month of waiting, I finally got my hands on the trophy.
The trophy is a jeepney (the most popular means of public transportation in the Philippines) full of passengers. I really like it and I think it embodied the goal and theme of this year’s Philippine Blog Awards which is “One Blogging Nation“. One thing though, it would have been better if each trophy had a description on it saying that it was for the 2009 Philippine Blog Awards and included the category name like “Best Technology Blog”.
Aside from the trophy, all the winners in the main categories were also given new Nokia cellphones courtesy of Nokia Philippines, one of the main sponsors of the event. Btw, I got a Nokia E52.
I’ve been playing around with the Nokia E52 since yesterday and so far I really like it. I might publish a review of it later.
Anyways, thanks once again to Juned Sunido of the Philippine Blog Awards and Nikka Abes of Nokia Philippines for sending this stuff.
