The Stressed Owner Of The Best Blog Shop At The S’pore Blog Awards

(27)
Tuition given in the topic of Miss Loi the Tutor from the tuition centre desk of Miss Loi at 11:31 pm (Singapore time)
Toto Results (Straits Times 6 Sep 2008) Results on Lianhe Zaobao (7 Sep 2008)

Results as announced on the press over the weekend.
Punters to present IC when collecting winnings.

No mention will be made of the beautiful location where the event was held, for she was too tense to appreciate the surroundings.

No mention will be made of the sumptuous buffet on offer, for she had lost all appetite for the evening.

No photos were taken with any of the celebs who were present, for she was such a bundle of nerves that she even had to turn down the early interview request from Razor TV (sorry just couldn’t do it at that point in time 🙁 ).

S'pore Blog Awards Ceremony

The root cause of incessant heart palpitations.

With her back firmly pressed against the wall, the incessant palpitations of her heart reached a crescendo as she viewed, for the first time ever, her humble green blog being flashed on a screen other than her own.

Joss Sticks On Big Screen

They scrolled really fast on the night.

The dazzling spotlights and a frenzy of flashes unleashed upon the newly-crowned Best Youth Blog winner was blindingly forbidding, overwhelming a stage-shy Miss Loi to the point that, for a brief moment, she wished that her name would never be called.

But banish such thoughts she must, for that would be a let down of Table Tennis proportions to her friends and readers who have steadfastly voted for Jφss Sticks throughout the month of July.

When a booming “MISS LOI!” finally jolted her from her self-induced trance, and she swore that she heard a muted cheer from somewhere as she took the hesitant first steps of her eternal trek from one end of the hall to the other.

Cryptic Blog Awards Hieroglyphs

These hieroglyphs actually got bigger and bigger as she approached the stage

Feeling for once like her students when they collected their O-Level results, time seemed to stand still as she climbed the steps to the stage, with the anticipated storm of camera flashes now raining relentlessly upon her, as she realized belatedly that she had probably become the first person in Singapore this year to CARRY A HANDBAG upstage to receive an award *eeks!*

Must. Keep. Smiling.

Must. Keep. Smiling.

With that, Jφss Sticks sealed its fate as Singapore’s Best Blog Shop according to the 2008 S’pore Blog Awards, along with a cutesy trophy now on permanent display at The Temple – an eternal tribute to all who had valiantly sacrificed their precious MSN chat/computer game/Japanese collections viewing times to click and click and click on Miss Loi’s kan cheong icon throughout the grueling campaign.

Best Blog Shop!

Trophy courtesy of the legendary Tan Swie Hian
– whose website the Trusty Webmaster was rumoured to have a hand in it (sure or not?!)

With Miss Loi’s eyesight slowly recovering from the blinding storm of flashes, and terrifying pictures of her begin sprouting up across the internet, and while she’s still trying very hard to recall what exactly did she say in her subsequent press interviews, she would like to say a very big THANK YOU to fellow bloggers Chillycraps, Claudia, DK, Eastcoastlife, ieatishootipost, Rinaz, Walter etc. for their great teamwork in ambushing Miss Loi as she made her way down the stage, and for calming her nerves with their ultra-friendliness in a tensioned-filled night for her.

THANK YOU too to those of you who cheered when Jφss Sticks was announced, even if it was just a figment of Miss Loi’s imagination.

A special THANK YOU to sweet Jaime, who actually walked over to congratulate Miss Loi even though we don’t know each other at all 😀

And most importantly, an ∞ amount of THANK YOUs to ALL OF YOU dear readers for sticking around and tolerating Miss Loi’s lame entries throughout these 1.5 years. You have truly vindicated her hours and hours of effort (and missed TVB episodes and missed sales) put into Jφss Sticks.

Once again, from the bottom of her heart,

Thank You!
頑張って!!!

    Congrats on winning the Best Blog Shop award, Miss Loi! I thought you might have won the Best Design Blog award too as this is one of the best I have seen, no disrespects to the winner and nominees.

    Good thing I have nothing to do with 'O's, the countdown (at the side) looks quite intimidating. haha!

    Jonathan: Intimidating??? This blog is supposed to offer the visitor a sensual spa-like retreat into the world of O-Level Mathematics!

    P.S. Thank You on behalf of the Trusty Webmaster 🙂 The Best Design Blog category is a difficult one as the finalists are formidable and ... umm ... intimidating(?).

    Karen + Bruce: WHOA most famous mathematician?! Folks like Euler and Pythagoras might have something to say about this!

    Naomi: V^.^V V^.^V V^.^V V^.^V V^.^V

    Stardust: 谢谢你! 多多光顾哦!

    Claudia: Oh yes the Chief Commander of the Elite Ambush Team, you're guilty as charged!!! So can Miss Loi assume those cheers somehow surfaced from the chantings in your hearts?

    But really thankful to you for putting me at ease on the night 😀

    Janice: Yalor. But on a positive note, think the big handbag served as a good counterweight to help balance a jittery Miss Loi when she went upstage.

    Julianne: $$$?? We're all paid in kind. Do share if you know of any blog contest that LV is sponsoring 🙂

    Abaoo: 谢谢!那晚没见到你?

    HAM: You're back! Miss Beautiful award? You're talking about the Best Youth Blog, Best Photo Blog or the Best Individual Blog winner?

    Thanks Zac! Slow meh? Maybe we need to install ERP gantries here to achieve an optimal traffic flow 😛

    Congrats to you too Eunice! Your blog really makes me feel like travelling again and ... umm ... confirm there's no hope to Miss Loi's photography abilities.

    P.S. Sorry I didn't talk much on the night - hopefully this post has explained why. Hope I didn't come across to everyone as being Dao coz ... umm ... I'm most definitely not! 😛

    Great work there and cool job in keeping this blog so fun and active! I think you must be Singapore's most well known tutor, and an extraordinary one too!

    Sorry for ambushing you that night. Would have liked to chat more but I guess the circumstances that night didn't quite permit it.

    Thanks Walter! Singapore's most well-known tutor??? Like the mathematicians in comment #13, Miss Loi is sure many will have something to say about this!
