THREE-PEAT

I don’t even know where to begin, how to start. Let me try…

IT HAS BEEN A FRUITFUL year for The Professional Heckler.

Last night, December 12, our blog – oo, kasama ka do’n; atin ‘to – won two awards in the 2010 Philippine Blog Awards (PBA): Best Humor Blog and a “Top 3 Posts of the Year” trophy for “Exclusive: GMA Breaks Her Silence.

In my acceptance speech, I said, “Hindi ko in-expect ‘to. Inasam ko ‘to.”

To the thousands of readers, visitors, critics, friends and fans (mehhhh ganun?) of this blog sa Pilipinas at sa iba’t ibang panig ng mundo, isang taos-pusong pasasalamat sa inyong walang sawa at walang pagod na pagbabasa, pagpuna, at pagsuporta. Allow me to borrow a line from Melanie Marquez’ speech when she won best actress in the 1987 Metro Manila Film Festival, “Ito na po yata ang pinakamaligaya kong Pasko at manigong bagong taon sa inyong lahat!”

To the judges, and to the men & women of the Philippine Blog Awards, maraming salamat sa pagtitiwala.

Sa lahat ng pulitiko, tao ng gobyerno, aktor, aktres, journalists, organisasyon o grupong naging paksa sa munting espasyong ito sa cyberspace, maraming salamat sa inyong pang-unawa.

Nais kong ibahagi ang parangal na ito sa mga mamamahayag na Pilipino – sa kanilang sipag, tiyaga, at pagpupunyaging maihatid ang mga balita sa publiko. Kung minsan, buhay ang kapalit ng pagtupad ninyo sa inyong mga tungkulin at trabaho. Saludo ako sa inyo. Kung wala kayo, wala ang blog na ito. Thank you guys! Kitakits sa Twitter!

To my family, para po sa inyo ‘to.

Kris Aquino, I love you!
Kapag ikaw ang topic ko, bentang-benta ang blog ko. Pero ang gulo pa rin ng buhay mo. Leche flan ka!

Hangga’t may gobyerno, magsusulat ako.


The Event
I had second thoughts about showing up at the awards night. On my way to the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium (RCBC Plaza) in Makati City, a friend announced a spoiler of sorts on Twitter. She said: “Guess what guys! The Philippine Blog Awards has named the lone winner for Best Humor Blog, and the name of the winner is Miko Morelos!” Of course my friend was just making papansin so I ignored her.

Running late, I almost beat the red light on Buendia Avenue. A traffic enforcer approached me and asked, “Anong akala mo sa sarili mo si Schumacher?” I replied, “Hindi manong. Akala ko ako ang bise-presidente.”

I arrived at the venue shortly before 7PM. Rumors have it that President Aquino was sending a representative to the awarding ceremonies. It turned out that he decided to cancel it at the last minute due to pressure from China.

This year’s Philippine Blog Awards (PBA) adopted the slogan: ‘Beyond blogging.’ The PBA organizing committee denied rumors it spent 5 million pesos when it was launched.

Following the announcement of the first set of winners, I approached a member of the PBA organizing committee to verify if the list of winners was accurate. This, after I heard a blogger said he obtained a copy of the same list and he saw the names of Senator Gringo Honasan and some Communists.

After my name was announced as the winner, I received a text message from Executive Sec. Jojo Ochoa. It said, “Inumaaaan na!”

A second message came in while I was delivering my acceptance speech. “Puwede ka ba naming iphone-patch ngayon nang live, nationwide – Michael Rogas, RMN.” I refused.

Before the night was over, a raffle draw was conducted. The biggest winner was a 60-year-old balikbayan blogger from New York whose name organizers refused to reveal for security reasons.

Outside the venue, shortly after the awarding ceremony, fellow bloggers asked if they could have their photos taken with me. Others even inquired about my love life. So I told them, “Ibalato n’yo na lang ang konting privacy na natitira sa akin.”

To celebrate my victory, I plan to take someone out for dinner later – either in Rockwell or Greenbelt. But I’m having a hard time choosing a date. I think I need to consult my sisters. My biological sisters, not the Pink ones.

  1. Congratulations, Idol PH!
    Two of my office mates were able to attend the awarding kagabi. Sayang I wasn’t able to come with them! If ever, magpapa-sign ako ng autograph at magpapa-picture with you. Haha.
    Don’t worry, PH. I won’t heckle you during your acceptance speech. Haha.

    P.S: Hindi po ba nasabi ng mga bituin kay Madam Zenaida Seva na mananalo kayo? Hehe

  4. Congrats Mr. PH, simula ng makapasok ako sa blogs mo, walang gabing hindi ako napatawa (ah, hindi pala daily ang blog mo, yoong ibang gabi, sa sarili ko lang pala ako tumatawa, huh?)… Yoong post mo, post ko din sa iba. Akala nila ako si Mr. PH, sabi ko hindi (not in a million blogs). Sana ay paltan mo si Carandang. Sigurado ako, before X-mas, wala na si Noynoy dahil sa press releases mo… lol

  8. already sent congrats.
    malacanang must also be celebrating your win.
    amusing to see 2 bmw’s with ‘office of the president’. stickers at my hotel this afternoon.
    out get 3 men and 6 young girls – not their wives unless they are muslim and up they go to executive suite.

    it made me think.
    do these idiots ever do any work.
    how do u afford to give bmw’s as the company car to pen pushers.
    clearly the country has more money than sense and does not deserve foreign aid from hard working tax payers abroad.
    they are not giving to fund bmw’s and escort girls for bureaucrats.
    no wonder the administration does not want the freedom of information act.
    it would expose their excesses and their laziness.
