Nuffnang Philippines brings home 4 awards at NAPBAS 2011

Last December 16, 2011, Nuffnang Philippines flew 26 Filipino bloggers to Malaysia to attend the bi-annual Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards in Putrajaya Marriott Hotel. We were joined by more than 500 bloggers from all over the Asia-Pacific (China, Thailand, Australia, Hongkong, Malaysia, Singapore and of course, us from the Philippines).
