I must admit that even a few days after my humble Mindanaoan.com blog won as Best Lifestyle Blog for Mindanao in the Philippine Blog Awards 2010, I still am on cloud 9.
While a lot of people have already congratulated me (and I still continue to receive several congratulatory messages until now) and even my ever-supportive Mama has already made plans to have a special tarp printed and displayed (yikes! :D), nothing prepared me for an absolutely wonderful surprise I got yesterday.
November 6, 2010, the very day of a blogging 101 workshop that I organized, was made extra special when someone sent in this video message that did not only make my cheeks burn but make my heart melt as well 🙂
No less than Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan congratulated me!
Yes, THE Senator Kiko Pangilinan!
Check out Senator Kiko’s very special video message for me after the jump!
I got choked up when I first viewed this video.
I am cutting edge daw! 😀 And Senator Kiko remembered my small but genuinely heartfelt role for Rock the Vote 🙂 *sigh*
Thank you so much Senator Kiko Pangilinan! Thank you for remembering — rest assured that you can count on my support especially on advocacies that will affect the lives of many. And my sincerest gratitude for your greeting for me! Your kind words will really serve as inspiration for me to further hone my craft.
Thank you also to Miss Nina for the amazing surprise. This really brightened my day! Thanks to Miss Toni as well!
@Corve – thank you very much! Thanks for visiting my humble blog, too 🙂
Wow! Sweet. Congratulations on your win! 😀
Yey thank you! Wow, thanks so much for visiting my blog! I’m so honored 🙂
