PEBA: Pinoy Expats Blog Awards Night

Pinoy Expats Blog Awars or PEBA was created to recognize the growing popularity of blogging among Filipino expatriates and Overseas Filipino Workers(OFWs) in 2008. It has shown tremendous growth and support in the past few years both among expats, their families in the Philippines and local blog supporters.

I was privileged to be invited as one of the judges in their photo contest this year and I was there last night at Teatrino Promenade Greenhills to witness the awards night. I am happy to share to you some of the photos I snapped during the event.



I came early so I still got the chance to socialize with some of the bloggers, unlike during the Philippine blog awards when I came late and went home before the end of the event. The atmosphre last night was a bit different. People were in their elegant clothing, you see the tension in peoples faces as they are all excited to know this years winners but you can still feel the intimacy in the air.

finally met Jag, and Roanne

 with Unnie, Marvin and Johna -who came all the way from Visayas

--- there were many winners but some of them were standouts. hakot award!!!D:





with no less than Susan Ople to present the award...


with Carlo Ople as the speaker---emphasizing on the significance of blogging and internet on the Filipino family....

The Filipino Family - PEBA is not just about the bloggers but the Filipino family. Separated by borders in different parts of the world but united through blogging and the internet community.
