இ SPECIAL THANKS to ALL & [105 VOTERS]

The moment of truth - Congratz to Faisal Admar who is the new Champion Blog Idol 2010. It has been an exciting race right from the very start and Bananaz took it as a F1 race, steering nervously merely hoping not to crash out in the first initial rounds so as  to have the chance and thrill of racing. Must admit Faisal Admar is too tough to fight with 129 votes vz 105 votes. Bananaz would again like to thank those Voters who supported in all the earlier and final round with a big "Thank You". It was much more tedious than the previous rounds with lots of blood sweat and tears involved sending countless emails and smses with follow ups phone calls. It was a great experience to learn and know almost all of them bloggers, friends, colleagues and relatives on the same repeated message and can  actually see the good bad and ugly. Thankz my lucky stars to have few blogger friends who added strength to help out.

Bananaz would like to acknowledge with gratitude a few very outstanding blogger friends for their strong continuous support and truly appreciate their effort and contribution. My deepest and heartfelt appreciation goes to the first blogger who is no stranger to all, the past Blog Idol 2009 Champion [foongpc] for all his invaluable tips and suggestions when Bananaz was lost just as Round 1 kicked off who shared his kind advice. Second also another blogger just like foongpc whom I have never met before, is CH Voon who did a hard sell not only once but twice for Bananaz in his blog with full of concern who sent a full checklist on the things needed to do. Lastly the third blogger friend Peteformation who forwarded my emails and spent countless hours posting in his foodie list of followers clicking away with messages - vote "You're The Voice". Wowie I am really very touched, last but not the least my special thankz to the person who was instrumental and responsible for organising this event the one and only Bluedreamer for steering the helm pretty well despite his tight schedules in between studies and interruption caused by typhoon Basyang..Also not forgetting my sincere thankz to all the other ten participants who gave their best especially the Top #3 Blog Idol, Mariuca who occasionally showed up with her  kind words to give Faisal & Bananaz some motivation..XieXie.
