2009 bye..Hello 2010

Year 2009 was a wonderful, controversies and fruitful year for Style of Life for the fourth time Emma Williams, the managing editor of Schmap informed me that one of my photo has been selected for the Schmap Wellington Guide.

While the Gaza protest video from my video blog TheSidestrip was removed from Metcafe saying the video was found unsuitable to be published saying the item may contain pornographic, revolting, violent or  malicious content.

But I contested the review panel and the RePress was born.

I was very busy during the month of February as the 2009 Cuba Street Festival also kicked off, being a father, joined the Creative Freedom Foundation – Internet Blackout against upon Accusation laws and the coverage of NZ Sevens.

For more than three years, I've been living in southern part of Wellington City particularly suburban Newtown and every March, Newtown Festival is my favorite event during the summer season.

As kids I always fascinated with comic heroes I used to wear the Batman costume when I was four years old . Thanks to BIll ,the organizer of 2009 Armageddon comic expo Expo. for the double pass to check comic event of the year.

It's an honor for me when Ms. Lyndsey O'really , the marketing Manager of St James Theater Wellington invited me to watched the STOMP show with my son.

On the other hand, our  friends from Downstage Theater and Mr. Phil Reed also invited me check out the Adelaide Sax Pack.

The Positively Wellington Tourism invited me to cover the Wellington on Plate, an annual  festival of food.

Aside from featuring events around Wellington, The Style of Life also support  some community campaigns : raise the Stakes , The Breast cancer Awareness-Pink Ribbon Day, and the Blog Action Day among others.

I accidentally  also met  one of the famous radio announcer from Classic Hits FM Dave Smart  on my way to Newtown from Courtney Place.

Being a blogger you are role model to your readers and fellow blogger since Style of Life launched to the Cyberspace I make sure if their stories about environment issues such as Climate change. Style of Life, Thesidestrip ,Technogag and Repress are supporting this kind of events.

Like the Freezing in Wellington, the National E Day   and even my blog fight climate change.

This year is my first time to joined a  group of tourist  to tour the Wearable Arts Wander  around Wellington City.

On September , It's my son Birthday and he also received Kumon  awards and my wife and kids are creating a  little garden.

Every Labour Weekend, the Filipino communities in New Zealand come together to celebrates fiesta and this year Wellington CIty is the host venue for the annual Fiesta sa Wellington and the Style of Life witnessed festivities.

By the way ,Thank you to, they nominated me for my video blog TheSidestrip  for Wellingtonian's contribution to the internet.

I also want to thank you to CNN Ireport for featuring my  Urban Knitter  story on their CNN Living site.

Of course, Thank you very much to all my readers and my fellow Bloggers for supporting me through the year.

I wish more sponsors to come and please support the blogging community particularly in Wellington City .

Thank you  Very Much.

2009 Bye… Hello 2010
