One of the most famous quotes in movie history is the one from Forrest Gump when Forrest said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” This is definitely true. Sometimes, the most unexpected things can come knocking on your front door. Upon opening that door, you’ll be treated to the best surprise of your life.
Well, ours came in the form of an email last November 12, 2014. We can never forget this day, and we have recently starred it in our Gmail account.
It was an invitation from the Best Cebu Blog Awards (BCBA) committee, the first and sole award-giving organizer that recognizes the presence, efforts, and importance of Cebu-based bloggers and their respective blogs.
Upon opening and reading our email, our jaws dropped and we squealed wildly with excitement. It turned out that we were selected as one of the nominees for the 2014 Best Cebu Travel Blog award!
That is just awesome beyond belief! It was an extremely unexpected surprise (notice the redundancy) of our lives considering that we have only been blogging for barely two years!
Thus, on December 7, 2014, Sunday, we will heading off to attend the 7th Annual Best Cebu Blog Awards Night at the Avalon Building, Cebu Business Park. This is our very first time to attend and actually be a part of such prestigious event, and we’re excited and nervous at the same time.
It is a great honor to be given such recognition in Cebu’s blogosphere. We are definitely grateful to the people behind the BCBA and the sponsors who continuously give their undying support and acknowledgment to bloggers.

On November 15, 2014, we will be celebrating the second anniversary of Adrenaline Romance. We consider this nomination as our anniversary gift. A huge thanks to all of you, dear readers! Your continued readership, positive comments, interesting inquiries, and great suggestions have inspired us to bring you even more adventures.
Congratulations and see you at the awards night! 🙂
Hehe! Thanks Vic! Congratulations too and we’ll see each other on December 7.
Why are you guys surprised? Thoroughly deserved.
Hi Uncle Spike,
Thank you! Well, it was just unexpected considering that we’ve just have 2 years of blogging experience under our belts. And our blog is just simple—no spectacular widgets, programs, etc. We are not even implementing SEO on our posts!
So, yup, it was a pleasant surprise. 🙂
Congratulations. The nomination is a testament to your writing and photography skills. Wishing you the best and lots of luck. Will I be able to vote? 🙂
Thank you very much for the compliment. To tell you honestly, I just write freely (Sheila does the editing) and truly, and I don’t actually embellish my writing. In fact, I often think that my writing style is too simple to be of merit.
For our photos, we just use simple but top-quality click-and-shoot cameras to take our photos. DSLRs are too complex for us to use (we’re not really techie) and too heavy and bulky to bring up the mountains. My bro, who is a professional photographer, just provides us basic advice on how to take good photos using the cameras we have.
No, there’s no voting scheme for the BCBA award. They have a committee to do the judging.
Thank you very much for the continued support.
Thank you, Jan!
congrats! see you at the awards night. 🙂
Congratulations too! We’ll see you on December 7. 🙂
Congratulations Team Sweetie!
Thank you, Mustachio! Let’s go adventuring. 🙂
Congrats Sheila and Gian! See you on Dec. 7! 🙂
