A friend’s close call

I’ve read so many news articles, accounts and blogs on the “Made in China with Melamine” case.  I’ve even received a few emails detailing what other products out there are being checked for melamine contamination. I have to read labels of food products I regularly buy, just in case. But what about those using raw materials which could be contaminated? The labels do not inform us where the raw materials come from. What if? It gave me more shivers especially yesterday when a friend wrote in her Cogito ergo, scrap! blog about her experience when her kids had some stomach problems after eating some biscuits. It’s frightening that things could happen right there at our doorsteps. Just because some unscrupulous businesses are so greedy. They do not know the repercussions of their actions on the innocent. Let’s be vigilant and be aware of what we take in all the time.

I wasn’t there to witness it. I wasn’t even able to watch the livestreaming hu hu hu. But thank God for emails,  eposts and blogs, written right after the event. Now we know who the winners are. They entertain, challenge, remind, teach, encourage, make us laugh/cry/react, and many more. One thing is common among them – they never bore. Some of them I’ve read already, some are new to me, to be added to my reading list. Click on the image below to see the list of winners and links to their sites:

Winners of the Philippine Blog Awards 2

I am happy that an entry on Evelio Javier by Jester-in-Exile won the Best Single Post under the Arts & Culture Category. I haven’t seen this musical but just read about it earlier this year, from the Jester-in-Exile blog as well as from other pages on Antique province. As an Antiqueña, I am proud that somehow the province and one of her most beloved sons were featured in it (half of it coz it shares the limelight with another EJ).
