A perfect birthday present…


I myself can’t believe up to now that I won an HP Mini Netbook just for blogging the first ever Trendlabs BlogCon.  Though, I admit that I wished for this, it’s just that.. ummmm.. ah… ewan!

Can’t believe it really.  When I first saw my name in the email from Andy’s PC, I think all I said was “whoah-whoah-whoah”  — but I didn’t scream.. I hope..

It’s quite surprising because for the longest time, I haven’t had any “luck” like this.  When I was younger, I really thought I was lucky in life because I often win in raffles and in various contests but as I grow older, it changed.  I hope you understand what I’m trying to say here or else you won’t continue reading :.  My mind’s clogged up with awe at that moment that I did not even know what to react.

My excitement was somehow replaced by a pinch of pressure because it was sent to all Trend Micro employees (I hope in PH only) – and I bet they’re currently reading this if they bookmarked this blog 😀  After sometime, I also received comments from my colleagues and told me that they’ve read it.  I suddenly felt bothered because some may judge it the way that I don’t want to hear it.  Some may like it and some may even say that it’s not deserving to win.  I kinda prepared myself to it after minutes of thinking.  Though I haven’t received any insecure comments yet, I told myself that it’s not really the best blog anyone could read but it’s the sincerest and the most truthful article I have ever written – it’s very me.  I even recall writing it when I was very sleepy and just finished it in more or less an hour.

Nakakatuwa at sobrang nakakaoverwhelm lang ng nangyari.  For the past weeks, I was feeling down and awkward but not depressed.  It’s just that this is not the usual me.  Something’s really not in line with my everyday routine.  Until now, I don’t know what was it.  I think that happens for a reason to everybody.  Then one night I just prayed and felt sincere that it would go away.  God knows how to cheer me up.  This may not be the best gift but it’s a perfect present that came in a perfect time to make me realize that BRO won’t ever let me down.

My overflowing gratitude to the speakers who stand as judges and to the organizers of the Blogcon – parang awards night lang.

Digs!
