Pakistan Blog Awards 2011 [EVENT COVERAGE]

The much awaited 2nd Pakistan Blog Awards 2011 where held today 23rd December at Kohinoor Hall Regent Plaza Karachi. The awards were scheduled to start at 7:30 but due to the late arrival of guests, it kicked off at 8:00, 2nd Pakistan Blog Awards 2011 were organized by CIO Pakistan.
    2nd Pakistan Blog Awards 2011 showcased the theme of colors of Pakistan, The organizers were having Ajrak on the shoulders and the designing of back drop was having elements of Ajrak. At the beginning an amazing performance was done by the children dressed in a manner representing different cultures of Pakistan from all four provinces ‎1st came the kids dressed as Punjabi, after which  as Sindhi followed by Pukhtun and Blaochi,All of them danced on the songs on the regional language of the province they represented..
The saddest part about Pakistan Blog Awards 2011 was that almost 60% of the award winners were not present at the Bog awards, The people who attended bought laptops, tablets Pc’s and spent most of the time using them giving the blog awards  a dead feeling,
The event could be much better if the organizers could have requested people to stop using them,
Apart from this another annoying thing was that people were again and again asked to do clapping, Once our twice it is ok but after announcement of each award people were requested to clap. I observe a major issue many of the Blog winners were not actually bloggers, but web owners and I think the organizers of PBA are smart enough to know the difference between a website and a Blog.
Any ways here is the list of award winners
   At around 8:45 the award ceremony embark on,
