2017 was a momentous year for Random Republika. Aside from the back-to-back projects we worked on, multiple big events we got invited to, and the unexpected national TV appearance of my blog partner, Kate Adajar, in a Gandang Gabi Vice (GGV) segment (watch here), we were also thrilled to be recognized as one of the awardees at the 2017 Sulo ng Overseas Filipino Singapore Awards which was held last October 29, 2017 at the York Hotel Singapore.   

This annual community event is organized by the non-profit organization, Sulo ng Overseas Filipino (Singapore chapter), and it aims to recognize various groups and individuals in the fields of business, entertainment, community leadership, public service, etc. for their positive contributions to the Filipino community in Singapore.

Random Republika was honored as the recipient of “Natatatanging Organisasyon (Social Media)” award for our contributions in the field of digital content creation.
