Thanks Goldilocks! Thanks Nuffnang!

Posted on August 8, 2009  in Blog Experiences, Personal Experiences

I attended my first blogger event yesterday. It’s the Goldilocks-Nuffnang event at the Fort (Topshelf, Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street). I arrived alone at Topshelf since Raven is still on her way to the venue.

I registered and joined a table of bloggers. Raven joined me just in time when the organizers are announcing the winner of the “decorate your cake” game.

And then they announced the winners of the consolation prizes. Before announcing the finalists, the marketing manager (don’t know exactly if she’s from Goldilocks or Nuffnang) congratulated all the bloggers who joined and told that all blog post are really good. She mentioned something about the “customs officer” then I started to get nervous.

And then they started the announcement of the mini-laptop winners. When they showed the picture of the Vanilla Taisan from my blog in the projector (hey that’s my post) and called my name I was both happy and nervous. I stood up to get my prize and they asked me to share my Goldilocks story. I told them that this is my first blogger event and that I’m so nervous. But I just told them my goldilocks story with the US Immigration officer in SFO. I did not exactly remember what other things I said (but I think I babbled a bit) because I was still so nervous+excited+happy (Sorry I can’t pinpoint the exact feeling 🙂 )

My sincerest thanks to Goldilocks (You’re the 1 Goldilocks) and to Nuffnang for my brand new Neo Vivid Laptop.

Thanks also to the bloggers who greeted and congratulated me. (Guys n gals, Sorry I’m really poor at remembering names and faces so kindly leave some comments below and I return the favor by visiting your blogs).

Congratulations also to the other winners Leizl, Maureen, Doc Broks, Jonnie, and of course to Ms. Noemi, the grand prize winner of the Goldilocks and Nuffnang event.

I’ll update this post as soon as I got other updated info (from Nuffnang and other bloggers).

Thanks to Pehpot for the You’re The 1 Goldilocks Winner and You’re The 1 Goldilocks Winner posts.
