Blogapalooza: The blog is mightier than the sword!9:55 PM
I've been blogging for a number of years now and in the past even until now I can't believe that blogging has gone so far and has be...
The first ever Blogapalooza event was held at Fully Booked, Fort. I was a bit late so when I got up to the 5th floor of Fully Booked a lot of people were already roaming around the venue and businesses having their talks. I missed a few but still got to catch up on the others. When I got there I also noticed this huge Blogapalooza board and all the 150 bloggers who were invited had their URLS up there. Of course I had to take a picture near mine! Got SO kilig when I saw this!^_^
Of course aside from the businesses and bloggers, this cool event wouldn't have happened without radio DJ, Vince Golangco!:) Too bad I wasn't able to say Hello and talk to him. Next time!
Here were some of the businesses that I got to see and try at the event...
Golden ABC: Memo, For Me, & Regatta. I'm sure all of you know these stores because they're very popular in malls. :)
Farmer John premium potato chips. I tried their BBQ flavor from the loot bag we got and it is soooo good! I opened the small one first and finished it in a matter of seconds, so I just had to open the bigger bag. Healthy junk food?:)
One of my favorite eco-friendly products; TREE HUGGER! Been using these since first year college and I love their pens. Especially the highlighter and pen all in one. Pretty useful when you don't wanna bring too much pens in school. Plus, its 95% Earth-friendly. ;)
This is my first time to encounter Shopinas.com. Its a site wherein you can sell and buy things online.
This is another first for me. HEALTHY FIRST. I never knew that carrot juice combined with other fruits would taste so good! I found it weird at first but when I had the Carrot four season and Carrot Mango Lychee, I wanted to get a bottle hihi. But kahiya naman!=P For health buffs and even if you're not, I recommend this!
We also got to hear talks from businesses like, Fashion Art (FART), Lazer Xtreme, Boudoir Dolls, HTC, Size Matters and Tripologie where our lucky friend, Pax won a cute laptop bag!:) She her??
My favorite drink of all time... TEA! Lipton Tea, specifically!:) I'm easily drawn to tea and when I saw "cream milk tea" I just had to try it. :)
Of course if there are businesses, there are also a lot of awesome bloggers to meet and bond with at the event. This was the best part for me!
My blogger friends: Dianne, Gel, Jen and Kai!
Marianne of Not Your Ordinary Beauty Queen. Such a nice and pretty girl!
Also met Mars of Fashion Insouciance. Finally! after leaving comments on each others blog, we meet!:) Super nice to see you at Blogapalooza, Mars!
Met April of Self-Portrayal too! Lovely girl! Did I mention she has pretty shoes!:) Too bad wasn't able to take a picture but do check out her blog to see!
So glad to see Ms. Lace and Sir Azrael after awhile!:)
And with my girls: Pax, Momma Earth, Melai and Ana!:)
We stayed at the back since the front seats were taken. We actually didn't have chairs but thanks to the gentlemen bloggers at the back who gave up their seats for us!:) My seatmates: Melai, Ana and Dianne! Love our chikkahan galore!
I guess a lot of you guys saw the loot from other bloggers who attended the Blogapalooza, so i'll post mine but only got to take a portion of it. Sorry! But the loot was really overwhelming! I think the biggest loot bag I've received by far!:)
Thank you again to Sir Azrael, DJ Vince and Blogapalooza for inviting me to this one-of-a-kind event! I really had an awesome time! I can't wait for Blogapalooza 2!!!
