Pinoy Expats/OFW Blog (PEBA) Awards 2010 WINNERS


TOP 10 OUTSTANDING BLOGS

OFW BLOGGERS CATEGORY


Top 1 - ANIMUS, Kuwait
"a very inspiring story that leads to positive realization of what lies ahead,
the sacrifices and strength of OFWs" - Judge 1
"short but heartfelt post drawing from the author’s personal experience."
- Judge 3
"Beautiful in its sincerity and simplicity." - Judge 5
"I like his use of a metaphor. He writes about the stark realities of OFW life but remain hopeful of the future. " - Judge 7
"Magandang pagkalahad ng kwento ng isang anak. " - Judge 8


Top 2 - GREMLINESS, Dubai, UAE
"I was really inspired by what the Gremlin blogged about redefining the OFW. It's a must read." - Judge 2
“Redefining the OFW” offers a different perspective in attacking the theme. The writer focused on having the whole family together abroad and seeing the countries just as how we see the provinces in the Philippines, in terms of traversing from one province to another." - Judge 3


Top 3 - KAYNI'S CORNER CAFE, U.S.A.
"The author presented a different perspective looking into the plight of OFWs from an "outsider's" point of view. The essay attempts to be persuasive by presenting steps to be taken by OFWs to avoid the problems that often arises in the lives of people working abroad." - Judge 3
"Her entry is well-structured and very relevant. I liked it that she broke the piece into themes. I would have wanted to know more about the impact on the children especially when the marriage broke apart, and the coping mechanisms of her sister." - Judge 6


Top 4 - BAUL NI NOEL, Saudi Arabia
"The writer outlined clearly the things that could strengthen an OFW family. The story merits strength in that it is the personal story of the writer and he clearly tells how he and his family worked together towards being united not only in physical terms but also in aspirations."

Top 5 - ¡SOY NEGRENSE!, Saudi Arabia
"The author took time to cite some common stories of OFWs, presenting both the profits and perils of working abroad and ultimately persuading fellow OFWs to take the necessary steps to keep being on the right track."

Top 6 - JOURNEY OF A PRODIGAL DAUGHTER, Macau
"Beautifully written, moving metaphor about umbilical cords and a touching rendition of how an OFW feels when sick and away from home. Bravo!" - Judge 6

Top 7 - GUMAMELA SA PARAISO, Taiwan
"I enjoyed the photos and her writing in the vernacular makes the account more heartfelt. I wish she had embodied more about the relationship between her employer and hersef in the uppermost part of her blog entry, just to improve flow and coherence." - Judge 6

Top 8 - DECONSTRUCTING DUBAI, Dubai, UAE
"This entry works on so many levels. Setting aside grammar, I am impressed with the writer's choice of words - i.e. "My family is sonless in me." Hopefully ,the writer continues to practice writing and read more books so that the technical aspects of writing can be improved. Certainly, he has great potential." - Judge 6

Top 9 - THE JOURNEY of my LIFE, Saudi Arabia
STAY AT HOME BLESSINGS, Saudi Arabia

Marami pong salamat sa PEBA.

Just a question: how do we access photos during the event? parang may link po kasi doon sa FB, but I think it is only accessible to the friends of the owner?

Thanks
