Nuffnang Awards 2016 – Best Food Blog

Some weeks ago, I received a very kilig-to-the-bones email. I was nominated for Nuffnang Awards 2016 under the BEST FOOD BLOG category. Of course I couldn’t believe my eyes & had to read a second, third & fourth time if they indeed got the email address correct, hehe.


Nuffnang is the world’s leading Blog Advertising Community. Aside from serving ads on over 30,000 blogs, Nuffnang PH also hosts all kind of cool events to bring bloggers together! Check them out at



Now if you know me well enough, you’d know I don’t like office politics, or competition. It sorta brings out the worst in me because, well, who doesn’t like winning right? When you go in, you’d definitely want to go for the kill & come out shining. And that’s just not me anymore. This year is about Jane Go 2.0 – I’m all about serenity & tranquility now, just like the 2016 pantone colors of Rose Quartz & Serenity, lol. Besides, I shy away from big events & send my most humble regrets whenever an invitation for such comes my way.


Thank you so much Nuffnang PH for making me the featured Blogger of the Month last December! <3 It was truly an honor for me, and such a nice Christmas gift from my advertising family.

And so, I modestly & politely declined. First off, because I’m really not worthy. I may blog a lot about food but I am in no way in the league of my favorite foodie, JinLovesToEat (who sadly doesn’t blog as much anymore), or my cousin RICHARD for that matter -who takes absolutely the most beautiful food photos & describes each taste & texture perfectly that you’d either actually drool with every compliment, or grimace with every criticism. That’s how passionate his words are, you feel like you’re right there, eating at his table, sharing in every morsel.


My blog is just full of silliness, carefree moments & happy insights. You don’t really go to my blog (which as you know is full of selfies, two-fies, and we-fies) to get an answer to your question & hunt for the next big thing in the food scene. Nope, for the latest tip, newest jaunt, most complete info & drool-worthy photos, you go to Tales from the Tummy for the most honest & up-to-date insight. You don’t find any sugar coating there, sponsored posts or not.


Of course, for matters of the puso, you go to Tales from the Heart (all sugar & spice, thats me!) <3


PERCENTAGE OF VOTING: 30% – Online Votes | 70% – Nuffnang Awards 2016 Council Votes VOTING PERIOD: Ends on Feb 22, 2016 – 11:59PM



About Richard: Richard is VERY serious & passionate when it comes to his food shots. Which is why he always lets me go first in taking photos haha. Coz he knows all it takes is one haphazard click for me. Whereas he takes shots in EVERY angle. Every shot is photogenic, I kid you not. And he is really credible, walang paliguy-ligoy direct to the point. If he says it’s not good, then it’s not good. Patay kang bata ka. Lagot ang review. There’s no changing his mind. ;))

So friends, may I ask that you cast a vote for Richard Co by doing any of the above via social media, or clicking HERE. This is actually his 3rd time in a row to be nominated, so if that doesn’t qualify & get your votes , I don’t know what will. ;)


Presenting to you the very camera shy couple, Mr. & Mrs. Tales from the Tummy. I think you’ll only find photos of them in my blog haha. Good luck Richard! Rootin’ for ya! \m/

    Hi Jane! Been following your blog since you started blogging! You are so funny, so down to earth… ..but there was a time when I stopped reading your blog when it turned so “commercial”…sponsored posts, etc…it just was not the same…
    I’m so happy, and I”m sure many of your readers are too, that the “old” Jane is back….spontaneous, and without pretensions….
    Please stay that way 😍😍

      Hi Olive. :) Thank you so much for your honesty. Yes, I also got lost along the way, which is why I decided to go back to blogging “solo”. I am after all, writing for myself. And for my dear readers. Will do my best not to be blindsided again. :)
