At the Digi Wwwow Awards 2012

Hey good AFTERNOON everybody! Pretty unusual for me to be posting in the afternoon but hey, there was football last night.

Anyways, if you have been following this comic blog, a few months ago I was panhandling like a shameless beggar for online votes for an award event most popularly known as the Digi Wwwow Award. Thanks to your votes, I was in the Top 50 in my category of Blogger of the Year and then weeks later I was notified via email that I qualified into the Top 10 and subsequently the Top 5 which grants me automatic access to their award ceremony held last Saturday (9 June 2012) at the Digi Headquarters in Shah Alam. It was great news but I didn't think I would stand any chance of winning despite my nomination as the competition was really tough. Nevertheless, Daryl tagged along with me to attend this event.

This is what happened there when it was time to announce the winner of the category I am in, the Blogger of the Year category:

Bromance: Nothing really gay about it.
YES! It is shocking but true! If you have been following the comic series on Facebook and Twitter, I was announced as the winner of the Blogger of the Year for the Digi Wwwow Awards 2012! It came unexpectedly but it was the greatest moment I could ever hope for in my entire life. (I usually don't win anything and go home disappointed) It was really surreal seeing the title of my comic emblazoned hugely on the large screen.

I went on stage and due to the fact that I did not expect this win, I fumbled my thank you speech and forgot to mention a whole bunch of people that I am thankful for for this great honour.

Therefore, I would like to thank the entire stickman's gang, Digi and everyone else who has been supporting my silly comics all these while and it would be total nothing if it werent for you guys. Thanks for all the comments, remarks, the weird emails and everything else that has contributed as juice for me to keep going. Special mention to lady boss, my lovely fellow comic bloggers of CBM which includes a fake cat, a man-eatera yellow shirted guy and many other and thanks also to my blogger friends which consist of one who claims is a "not so famous" orange and boobie lover, a beanie wearing Youtuber, a mexican chocolate bear, all my friends and especially YOU (yes you!) for reading and supporting this comic thus far! Without you guys, I am just an insane person drawing comics to an uninterested Internet crowd and every single one of you made it happen because you must be downing awesome juice every morning before you head out and continue being awesome in your daily lives.

Thanks everybody!

Absolute big thanks to my family for their unconditional love and support and also to my bros for being ridiculously awesome, unpredictably real and for always being there! Much love! Keep up the awesome and "Bro, don't like that la, bro"

Then again, an award result is not an award result without the usual haters. I woke up the next morning with hate comments and emails which I appreciate a lot despite the nasty things they said. Due to the request of several readers, here is an EXTRA comic about how I handled one particular hater.

I like pigs. They are cute.
Translation:
"A swine-like blog like yours won the award?"
"....."
"*pig sounds*"

Chill la bro. Kita Satu Malaysia ma. We are One Malaysia.

There are no losers. Only sour grapes. 

Thanks to everyone again! I can't thank you guys enough!

You have an extremely awesome week ahead!
