Congratulations to Vince Golangco and wheninmanila.com for the successful launch of Blogapalooza last Saturday. I sat, I ate and I owe you this badge….
It was a cool way for businesses to pitch to bloggers and for bloggers like us to get to know some brands in the market. I immediately warmed up to the sight of this lean and limber young lady from Polecats Manila hanging on to a pole by the entrance. Whatta welcome!
This man that lugged along a camera and a printer on his back was also quite a sight. Everybody had fun having their photos taken and then seeing the prints a few minutes later. Obviously, that’s what the backpack is for 😀
We were all assembled classroom style at the Top Shelf of Fully Booked, Bonifacio High Street. I sat behind Rowena of Animetric’s World and Melody Co while her boyfriend, Boy Kuripot (a.k.a Jeff) was busy taking advantage of the free wifi (what would a blogger event be without it?)
There were a few freebies passed around although this is already nothing new for those actively blogging. One stuff I loved: free bikini waxing from Lay Bare! 😀
Here’s a shout-out to a few (out of the more than 100!) bloggers I spotted. It’s nice to know that the blogging scene in Manila is now one of the most vibrant in Asia!
