DiGi WWWow Awards 2012

Digi WWWow Awards 2012 is coming again this year where bloggers and website owners are showcased and rewarded for their contributions. I had the chance to attend last year's Digi WWWow Awards and it was pretty cool. (DiGi WWWOW Awards 2011). Last week, they had their press conference and launch over at Digi D'House, which I was given the opportunity to attend thanks to Nuffnang.

Being there that morning, I was glad to find out we were to be served with Nandos for lunch. It was served buffet style, my first time having free flow of Nandos chicken which was pretty awesome to say the least. Yours truly had a few helping of that wonderful coleslaw and chicken doused in the new Extra Extra Hot Peri Peri Sauce
