    Nakakamiss talaga ang Pilipinas at mga Pinoys. Buti na lang we can all connect sa blogs.

    A well deserved award! Congratulations, Happy New Year and btw love the new APO cd [that I posted about it]:


    Again, I couldn’t agree more, especially the insights and the whole content notwithstanding that you seldom post your pictures. I know you are a great photographer as well, a man with so many talents!

  11. Congratulations! Even though I never expected to be in the Top 10, I knew *for sure* that you’d come out tops 🙂 It’s a well-deserved win indeed. Happy New Year!

    i am so glad you won for two reasons: 1) because you are excellent and you deserve it, and 2) because it means we (ang bumabasang madla) have the ability to recognize, appreciate and promote excellence 🙂
