Everything and Nothing

Saturday, November 30, 2002

I was at the Web Awards at Dusit Hotel last night. Too bad I was late for the cocktails - I could have met more people there. I was also frustrated that there were people who recognized me but I could not recall who they were. That's my mental handicap.

Surprises for the night were Juice winning in the Media category, and seeing my old coworker Jett Tayer pick up the two prizes for the Ang Dating Daan website. I sat in a very winning part of the ballroom, with people from the winning Grabeh and 2StudyIT. In front of me were consistent raffle winners from Perpetual Help University.

It was funny that I was (apparently) the only person to cheer for indiefilipino. It was also funny that some people I don't know cheered for me when my picture was flashed on the big screen as part of the judges' roster!

Performers were Rock Awards hall-of-famer Wally Gonzales "and friends," Session Road, and a new pop singer, "Nina." The main hosts were Lexi Schulze and Paolo Abrera. Their mistake of the night for me was mistaking Wally Gonzales and friends for the original Juan de la Cruz Band.

Showbiz hosts included Amanda Griffin, and the Miss Internet from Binibining Pilipinas. The hosts from industry included: Ver Pena of Philippine Computer Society, and Monette Hamlin of TeamAsia.


Earlier in the day, I played a total of three rounds of Dance Maniax. I can now play three rounds of five-star songs! I got to meet the PEx Percussion Freaks veterans at G4.
