I met many bloggers and trade friends at the event. I wished I had time to talk and interact with everyone, but as usual, together with the rest of the omy.sg team, we were too busy running around. If I accidentally appeared rude or ignored you when you approached me at the event, a big apology. I am not like that!

Packed to the brim

Singapore Blog Awards 2012 – Cast your vote for the best Blogs in Singapore!

Singapore Blog Awards 2012 Finalists Revealed!
Singapore Blog Awards 2012 Finalists Revealed!

Singapore, 22 May 2012 – omy.sg has released the top ten finalists in the ten main categories of the Singapore Blog Awards 2012 as well as the other finalists in three sponsored categories and two celebrity categories. The 100 finalists include a diverse range of individuals representing the multicultural aspect of Singapore.

Voting for the Singapore Blog Awards starts today till 30 June and can be done via the official website – http://sgblogawards.omy.sg. Voters stand to win attractive prizes like a Casio Sheen watch, Domino’s Pizza vouchers and more.

In conjunction with Singapore Blog Awards reaching its fifth year milestone, five bloggers were also awarded with a first-ever “Super Blogger Award’ by omy.sg. These five bloggers – Peter Breitkreutz, Catherine Ling, Goh Yong Wei, Eunice Khong, and Christine Ng, have not only been supportive of the Singapore Blog Awards over the years, but more importantly, are exemplars of the value of sharing information and experience via blog content.

Super Blogger Award
Super Blogger Award

The winners of the ten main award categories will be announced at this year’s award ceremony on 21 July at Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest Giant Observation Wheel. Invited guests will get to sample the best of local hawker delights at the Singapore Food Trail, a unique 1960s-themed food street, while the winners of the respective categories are unveiled.

As a lead-up to the award ceremony, omy.sg will be hosting three bloggers’ workshops (http://project.omy.sg/panasonic-workshops/) together with presenting sponsor, Panasonic. The workshops, helmed by well-known Singapore bloggers, will cover topics on photography, eco crafts and a cooking demonstration. Registration is free and all are welcome to participate.

In a tie-up with Far East Hospitality this year, omy.sg is also extending an invitation to bloggers outside of Singapore to attend the Singapore Blog Awards ceremony with 3D2N hotel accommodations sponsored by a group of seven hotels under the Far East Hospitality group (http://sgblogawards.omy.sg/2012/overseas-blogger-sponsorship/).

The Singapore Blog Awards is part of a series of events branded under Social Media Fiesta (http://project.omy.sg/social-media-fiesta), an omy.sg social media initiative.

More information are available on the official Singapore Blog Awards website. 

Why Join the Singapore Blog Awards?

This year is the fifth year omy.sg is running the Singapore Blog Awards. If you tell me five years ago that an event like this can grow to the scale it is now, I would not have believe it either.

omy.sg would not have been able to pull this off year after year, without the strong and growing support of our sponsors and the blogging community.

The 5th Singapore Blog Awards

Here is a link to a page showcasing all the previous winners from the past four years. 

Nostalgic?

Check out the past years Singapore Blog Awards sites for a walk down memory lane:

Singapore Blog Awards 2008 – Pink Party @ Asian Civilisation Museum 

Singapore Blog Awards 2009 – Slumber Party @ Supper Club

Singapore Blog Awards 2010 – Hollywood Glam @ Movida, St James Powerstation

Singapore Blog Awards 2011 – History Gets Social @ Shanghai Dolly

If you are a blogger and have not joined us before for the previous Singapore Blog Awards, here’s five reasons why you should join the Singapore Blog Awards 2012:

1. Fantastic prizes. Over $30,000 worth of prizes are at stake this year.

2. You get to travel to Macau for the International Fireworks Festival and make new friends with other bloggers. Check out what fun the 2010 winners had in Hong Kong and the 2011 winners in Melbourne, Australia.

3.  You get to attend the award ceremony in July. It will be held at the Singapore Food Trail at the Singapore Flyer this year. Guests will get to sample the best of local hawker fares and of course, ride on the Singapore Flyer, the largest Giant Observation Wheel in the world!

4. Get your blog known. The award organiser, omy.sg, is part of the Singapore Press Holdings media group. Expect coverage from many of the top news media in Singapore if you are among the winners or even the finalists.

5. Join for the fun of it! There’s no registration fee and it takes less than ten minutes to register online. You do not need to be a part of any blog network or cliche to join – the award is open to anyone who owns a blog, including bloggers from outside Singapore. There’s nothing to lose even if you do not win.

Singapore Blog Awards 2012 – Blog your way to the Macau International Fireworks Festival!

The Singapore Blog Awards is here again!

Singapore Blog Awards 2012
Singapore Blog Awards 2012

This is the fifth year I am running the Singapore Blog Awards together with the omy.sg team. Time flies, seriously.

Yong Wei was still under 16 and was a finalist in the Best Youth Blog category in the first year. Now, he is working at omy.sg a few tables away from me.

This year, we have over $30,000 worth of prizes lined up for participating bloggers and voters, including a trip to Macau for the International Fireworks Festival; Panasonic cameras and camcorders; Casio Sheen watches and more!

Register your blog or nominate your favourite blogs now! Do not miss the deadline on 6 May 2012.

A few tips for bloggers taking part:

– you do not have to wait for others to nominate you, just register your blog directly. You have a public blog, you can’t be that shy! (besides, you cannot tell if a blogger was nominated or registered directly on the website)
– you can register for as many categories as you like if you deem them relevant
– omy.sg accept blog registration from foreigners outside of Singapore; get your foreign blogger friends to join too
– the new Best V-Log category accepts youtube pages or other video hosting pages and not just conventional blog hosting sites
– do not clutter all the registration in the Best Lifestyle Blog and Best Individual Blog categories; look through the other categories and join them too if they are relevant. The more bloggers there are in a category, the lower the chance of getting selected as a finalist.

Special categories to watch out for:

Gmarket Best Online Shopping Blog: All ten finalists will get S$100 Gmarket shopping credits each! Three winners from among the finalists stand to win over S$1,000 worth of Gmarket shopping credits and products!
– Mary Chia Best Beauty Blog: All ten finalists will get to organise a spa party at a Mary Chia outlet for your friends – with expenses covered by Mary Chia! The top blogger in this category stand to win over S$5000 worth of products and services from Mary Chia!
ST701 Best Blogshop: All ten finalists will get S$1000 worth of banner impressions on ST701.com to promote your own business. The top blogshop will win an additional S$5000 worth of banner impressions!

Create Your SuperPower Contest

You can download the official Singapore Blog Awards 2012 logo and superpower speech bubbles to come up with your own creative images. Submit your photo to campaign.omy@gmail.com and stand to win a mystery prize if the team at omy.sg likes your creation!

Here’s the official media release sent out today:

I attended a second feast event last Saturday, organised by omy.sg and Lianhe Wanbao, together with omy Blog Club bloggers, Goh Yong Wei and Kiyomi Lim.

This time, we feasted at Shin Yeh Restaurant (欣叶台菜) and Fairmont Hotel Szechuan Court. The previous feast was at Ngee Ann City Crystal Jade Palace (义安城翡翠皇宫) and Swissotel Merchant Court.

Gourmet Food Trail with Ah Lun (阿伦笑吃人间 周末趴趴吃) – Part 5 of 5: Teochew Restaurant Huat Kee (厦门街潮州发记) and Casserole @ Rasa Sentosa Resort

In a special collaboration with ten well-known restaurants, omy.sg and Lianhe Wanbao, together with veterian food critic Ah Lun (黄卓伦) brought a group of readers on exclusive gourmet food trails for five consecutive Saturdays.

Each week, a group of 80+ readers visited two restaurants together with Ah Lun to sample their signature dishes as well as specially created dishes, not available on the restaurants’ menu.

Other than eating, participants also had the rare opportunities to meet with the restaurants’ chefs, some of them even sharing a few cooking tips on the spot.

For the fifth and final event, I attended the food trail together with fellow bloggers, Catherine Ling and Darren Ng.

We visited the Teochew Restaurant Huat Kee (厦门街潮州发记) for the first session and Casserole @ Rasa Sentosa Resort for the latter session.

Here’s the menu for the first stop:

四拼盘(肝花+春卷+猪脚冻+猪头粽)
草菇鸡片汤
传统包菜鸡
菜脯炒粿条
玻璃芋泥
Surprise Dishes: Roast Suckling Pig

Being half-Teochew (my mother’s side), I was brought up to enjoy and savour many traditional Teochew dishes like Orh-Ni (yam paste) and pork gelatin at many banquets. Teochew people love to host banquets at every occasion possible – during my grandparents’ birthday each year, Chinese New Year and other festive periods that call for large family gathering and celebration.

This was the first time I ate at Huat Kee though, and I must say, I was impressed by practically all the dishes presented.

The five plates of appertisers were all a delight, ranging from pork gelatin to the simple fried spring roll.

The cabbage chicken was particularly lovely. When the cabbage was cut open, the aroma of the chicken lures one to wolf it down with a bowl of pipping hot steamed rice.
