"Isla de Nebz blog stood out than the other blogs for me.
Although there were a lot of good blogs and a lot of good entries,
I enjoyed the way he presented the entry for PEBA -
not just because of the graphics he showed with his entry
but also because he had a unique entry per se.
We all know about an OFW's hardship, the sacrifices, etc.
And most of the entries just did that.
But Isla de Nebz entry was a different perspective
on a big aspect of an OFW's life - his income and where it goes.
I enjoyed that part (even without his original graphics)
His other entries were also fun to read - very light, very candid,
but at the same time, he was giving us the other side of an OFW's life.
He doesn't take himself seriously and I admire that." - PEBA judge
No. 3 in the Blog Entry and Blog Content, and voted twice as No.1 and twice as No. 2, twice as No. 4 by the judges in the over-all rank.
"Excellent blog and Informative in their own "kikay" way.
Because they were able to tell their story in a simple and sincere manner that is not boring but is actually compelling."
"Raised In the Republic, Raised in the Kingdom. Nice one!"
- PEBA Judges
