The GLAM Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011

If Oscars is THE event to honor the bests in the film industry and Grammy Awards to honor the bests in the music industry, we also have NAPBAS as THE event to honor the excellence and the bests in the blogosphere.

Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards, also known as NAPBAS is a prestigious, star studded event that all bloggers look forward to, and I am proud that I had the chance to be part of the event that was held at the JW Marriott, Putrajaya recently.


Since it was a black-tie event, guests were requested to wear formally ; ladies in dresses, men in suits. While the guests were not restricted to wear any color-coded attires, the Nuffies had special theme-color on that night, which was : black with a hint of gold.

I had trouble looking for a long dress with long sleeves without looking like a witch, so I was very happy when I found this breathtaking dress at Pavillion. It may have costed me a fortune, but it was all worth it. It was, after all, a star studded event, wasn't it? :)

As you can see, it was simple, and elegant. Just what I wanted. I had no time to look for a new shawl to match with the dress though (NAPBAS got all the Nuffies busy!), so I used the good old Maysaa snood, and style it up, my way.

I love how the gold brooch on the snood gives the classy look to it. My colleague even thought it was very high fashion! :P

Anyway, the night was ah-mazing. Words may not justify just how beautiful the night was, so I shall let the pictures do the talking! (Pictures credit to : NAPBAS flickr)

First of, look at how beautiful the grand ballroom was put together night!

Beautiful kannn! Every detail was accounted for, and it was absolutely gorgeous! :) Next, introducing the hosts of the night, Nadia Heng & Leang!

As well as the performers of the night, Viva Vertica, James Baum, Reshmonu, and the one and only, Harith Iskandar!

The guests were also served with fine-dining dishes and desserts while being entertained.. (Pictures credit to

After the winners were announced and the night came to an end, the bloggers took the chance to take pictures with each other, and I too, did not miss to join in the fun! :P (From top to bottom, with Filla, Shila, Nisa, SueAnnaJoe and Wahidah!)

Us Nuffie girls also had our group photo taken with each other too!

It was indeed a glamorous, and memorable night to remember. Hats off to those who made this event a successful one. Can't wait to see what NAPBAS 2013 has in store for all of the bloggers! Long live Nuffnang! <3
