hey guys,

THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH. and i'm very sorry for taking this long to thank all of you. if not for mimi who texted me yesterday, wara ako mahibawo nan ini na thread kay usually dili sa lagi ako mangukay nan yaka-archive na.

i found out about the contest three days before deadline. but knowing that "kakanin" was this year's theme, i was confident i could beat the deadline because all i had to do then was add a few touches to my stock pudding article to suit this year's criteria.

when the awards committee emailed to inform me that i won, i emailed back, saying that our pudding is famous, more famous in fact than tago's homegrown celebrities combined---sunday salvacion, zandro limpot and sam milby!

to God be the glory.
