Watching trailers will never be the same again

Mr Donald LaFontaine the voice behind 5000 movie trailers and hundreds of thousands of television commercials, network promotions, and video game trailers has passed away recently on 1 Sept 2008.

Watching Trailers will never be the same again. RIP Mr Thunder Throat.

Thank you for your support

OK, as expected, I didn’t win anything at the Omy Singapore Blog Award. Didn’t expect to win anyway. Like I mentioned previously, I just hope I’ll get into the top 10, which I did. :)

The Omy Singapore Blog Award was given out yesterday. Out of the 7 predictions I made, only 2 were right. This only shows that it’s anybody’s game in the whole competition and there is no clear winner until the last minute. Congrats to all the winners.

Yesteryday’s event was great. I don’t remember cam-whoring so much in my life before. Haha. That was fun, maybe we should cam-whore more in the future. I think our group is the noisiest bunch. Everyone is cheering for each other although none of us won. Maybe CC is right. It is a jinx to cheer when they announce the nominees.

The organisers placed a lot of lollipop on the tables, each of them with a label of the nominee’s URL. I only managed to find 1 with my blog url. Wonder who took the rest. Limited edition ok. Can sell at ebay. Wahaha.

The feeling was great when I saw my name and blog being flashed on the projector when they announced the nominees for the Most Insightful Blog award. I knew I won’t win. But it feels good to see my name among other powerhouse in the blogosphere.

Thank you for cheering for me yesterday night.
Thank you for voting me over the past one month.
Thank you for reading my blog and supporting me over the past few years.

Thank you. :)

Omy Singapore Blog Award Ceremony

It’s the Omy Singapore Blog Award Ceremony tonight. Finally. After 2 long months of campaigning and waiting. I’m nominated for the Most Insightful Blog Award, although I know I confirm won’t win. There are many better bloggers in my category. Will just go to the award ceremony to hang out and have fun.

Anyway, do you remember the predictions that I made previously?

And since we are at it, why not a Hokkien version too?

Thanks to Jerrick for lending me his white iPhone.

No iPhone was harmed during this Comics production.
