PEBA 2011

        This is a late post but still worth sharing. Last Dec. 09, 2011 I’ve attended my first blog nomination awards night at Trinoma Mall in Quezon City. This is for PEBA or The Pinoy Expats/OFW Blog Awards (PEBA), Inc. "It’s a non-profit, non-stock organization of international Filipino Bloggers located from different parts of the world & duly registered in Securities & Exchange Commission and Bureau of Internal Revenue.  It has grown to have liaison offices in the Middle East, South East Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe and North Africa.

        Originally, PEBA serves as an award-giving body that recognizes and honors the exemplary work of blogging Filipino Expats and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW); to present their blog work and bring out their creative talents through the power of cyberspace.

        It has evolved to become a respectable new media network through its affiliate KABLOGS, the gateway portal of PEBA, Inc., an online journal of OFW experiences and stories.

        PEBA is engaged in Blog Awards for both local (Philippine based bloggers) and OFW and Expats Bloggers (International), and the International OFW Photo contest."

        I was nominated to the Trabyaheng Blog (Travel Blog) Category of the Any Blogger Anywhere contest. I know that I have a slim chance of winning but I still attended to know more about PEBA and the people behind it. And sure it was a perfect decision for me as they’ve got so many surprises for everyone including this opening number:

        Great flash mob style opening number. And now some pictures from the event:

        Thank you again to PEBA for one unforgettable evening. I won a PhP 1000.00 worth of Ayala Malls gift card from the raffle. Others won Nokia phones and other stuffs from different sponsors. Until this year PEBA. Hopefully I’ll be nominated again...;-)
