September 22nd, 2008 · 44 Comments

Woohooo! I did it guys! This is the biggest recognition Octwelve has ever had and ofcourse it’s the most special because it’s from my homeland. I really wish I was there at the event. Thing is I didn’t receive a notice earlier. If I only knew I could’ve booked just for the event. So shall I give my thank you speech here instead ^_^.


I would like to thank those people who appreciate my designs and my blog. Thanks to Conrad for nominating me. Thanks to my followers for your support specially Jokay and Joni for their effort to vote for me for the People’s Choice Award hehe. Unfortunately, we didn’t make it to that award girls. But thanks a lot!! I’m really flattered. It really makes my day whenever I receive emails of compliments. And I’m really glad to know that I inspire some people and make some fellow filipino designers proud of me.You know these kind of words really gives me the motivation to continue what I’m doing. You guys make my stressful day good :) So big big thanks!! Thanks for all your support guys!!!

Haha Oscars?!

Lastly, congrats to all the winners!! Asteeg ng pinoy!

    Well done! I had faith that you would win, who were the other nominees? Also did someone else go up and accept the award on your behalf?
