It was a shocker when the winner of Best Blog of the Year was announced at Ping.sg 1st Anniversary Blog Awards. Not dk99 who was nominated for 5 awards and won 2, nor eastcoastlife who won 4 awards, not even keropok man! How did the result came about?
1 man decided it. Uzyn. I wasn't expecting to win this award, I was expecting dk to win, because he had 5 nominations. My confidence increased when I won 4 awards and I just expected to be lucky!
Did Uzyn disqualified me because I had won so many awards already? Or because of the scandalous post I wrote about him and dk? Was Veron given the award because she was the web designer of Ping.sg and Uzyn needed her more? :)
At the post award celebration, dk and I cornered him on this controversial award, he flared up and told us to shut up. ntt and ridz were present, we were bantering with Uzyn and he yelled :"DON'T SAY ANY MORE!" There was an awkward silence and sekling who was sitting beside me, said,"Don't say any more, he's angry!" What!? He can get angry, others cannot? His parents don't teach him manners? Yell at an elder? 没家教! I walked out.
Why can't he be transparent about his choice? What was he hiding? Nothing can be changed but he should at least answer the questions.
Let us deduce how Veron got the award based on dk's analysis.
Best Blog of the Year was picked based on the final results of all the winners. He assumes Uzyn chose the blog with the highest number of voters for one single category to determine the winner.
If it is based on the highest votes on a single category, Keropok Man would have won if he had not had two blogs in the same category nominated. And how can you pick that based on such an unfair decision, dk had 5 nominations in 5 different categories. Isn't he more popular?
dk and I were guessing, if Uzyn had added the total number of the votes we got from our nominations, the two of us were the only contenders for this award. And dk was the possible winner. Best Blog design = Best Blog of the Year? Geez...........
Well, this is life! In competitions these days, we don't expect the best to win anymore. Too many examples in real life scenarios. We expect big corporations to do such things, but a small kuching kurak (fry) also do this. tsk tsk tsk.........
Josh Lim gave the audience a hint before announcing the winner of Post of the Year. "The winner of this award definitely does not have this!"
I replied in my acceptance speech, "Yes, I may not have a dick! But I have BALLS!!!!"
Updates on this post:
All Hell broke loose after this post was published. I had expected the flaming and deserve it. I have deleted the unfair remarks I made on Veron. Not going to apologise for that because she stoop to my level and had her revenge already. Whatever she had called me, didn't she act that way? And where in my post did I call her a slut? You mean you were the girl in my 'Why Date a girl?' post? I didn't name the girl wor. That was a Pang Pui Post which means it's fictitious and meant for entertainment and I had stated that. hahaha......
Veron said,"Knowing dk was the worst thing in her blogging life!" I share her exact sentiments. During the prata supper at Fong Seng, keropok man was present, dk talked on the awards and how Best Blog of the Year would be chosen. To say he didn't expect to win is a lie. He expected to win with his 5 nominations according to his analysis and he said that was how it was discussed at the committee meeting.
He said I would 'sure win the Most Entertaining Post for my dick post. Veron sure win Best Design Blog and keropok man sure win Best Photo Blog because they have no fight'.
When he got slammed left and right by his members for his involvement, he texted and called me, begging me to withdraw my post which I did. Stupid because he came out with his own posts pushing everything to me and declaring his innocence.
He kept texting me asking me to apologise to Veron and Uzyn. Even after 1.30 am, he texted to say "sekling is very sad over my remarks." So? sekling your mother ar? Your 'brother' cannot stand also my fault izzit?
8 hours chatting with me at Hong Kong Tea House, numerous suppers with my hubby and I, what was mostly talked about, most Pingsters and Uzyn should have an idea.
