Please vote for Good Morning Yesterday

With all humility, I would like to announce that Good Morning Yesterday has been selected as one of the top ten finalists in the Individual Category of omy's Singapore Blog Awards 2008.

The top blogger in each category will walk away with a laptop and a trophy designed by Singapore's multi-disciplinary artist Tan Swie Hian. In addition, the top three most voted bloggers across all categories will also win a LG mobile phone each.


The winner in each category will be determined by 30% public votes and 70% scorings by a panel of professional judges - media industry veteran, Man Shu Sum; The Theatre Practice Co-Artistic Director, Kuo Jian Hong; and acclaimed movie director, Kelvin Tong.


To cast your vote, please go to this website. Voting is open from 30 June to 31 July 2008.


PS - Actually I would prefer to compete in the Education or Nostalgia category if there was one. But anyway, I am quite happy to have come this far, and even if I don't get into the top 3, it's fine for me.

A big thank you to all readers and contributers.
By the way, if you are new to this blog; perhaps you would want to check the following 3 posts that I submitted for the competition. And be sure to read the comments as well. Some of my readers contribute gems.
Besides the above my personal favourites are:
But I think the most widely read article judging from the statistics were:
Days of Black and White TV and Singapore’s First Fast Food Restaurant which was jointly written with Peter.

Hi Mr. Lam,

I came across your blog when I googled Princess Elizabeth Estate, Singapore. GMY is result no.1 of the search, wow.

I also grew up at Princess during the 70s. We stayed at Block 13. I ran the google search to gather some material for a post in my blog. Nice to know that an old kampung resident is on blogosphere, although we may not have met each other during those days.

I've voted for you in the Blog Awards. Best of luck.

Welcome to GMY, Oldstock. I think you are misaken. The article, Pricess Elizabeth Estate was written by my friend Chuck Hio. I never stayed there before.

Yes, you can vote once a day. Don't know why. Maybe they want to increase they hit rates.

Lam Chun See said...

Brian, Tom. Thanks for voting for me.

Wow. I feel so proud to have foreigners voting for me. Maybe the organisors should give extra weight to non-Spore voters yah? :)

I have discovered only in later years that we have our parents nostalgic genes running through us. After many years of pent-up emotion which somehow has to be released somewhere. It took business trip to Myanmar (formerly Burma) to kindled Chun See vivid memory of early Singapore, and thus GMY was borned. It deserves my full support and my vote as well.
