Blogapalooza 2011!

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

We had the Port88 Bazaar last Saturday, but who will say no to a Blogapalooza? :)
The Blog Is Mightier Than The Sword -- indeed!

So, kanya kanya kami nila Pax and Melai ng iniwanan na bantay in our Port88 stall (thanks Ate Kriska!). We left our panindas, and rode a cab to Fulled Booked in Bonifacio High Street to attend this revolutionary event made by bloggers for the bloggers (nuks!). Blogapalooza is a convention where 150 of Manila's bloggers meet and connect with businesses and sponsors. 

The organizer: When In Manila :)

Good vibes kaagad when I entered the venue: I met Ria! :)

With the Fashion Bloggers (represent! :)) - Melai, Dianne, Ms. Lace, Ava, Mother Earth, and Pax! :)

The huge room on the top floor of Fully Booked was filled with booths where companies talked about their products and services. This particular "area" caught my attention:
If only I can carry myself, bet ko matry yang pole dancing na yan. 

A wall also occupied this huge tarp with our blog urls! :) Lovet! Havey!

Ava checking out the free Avira anti-virus card handed to us while we looked around the different stalls and mingled with other bloggers:

The presentation of the different businesses started:

My pretty seatmates! :) Back row represent! 
Distracted kami ni Dianne niyan, kakatwitter hahaha. Para kaming students na pasaway hahaha...We were tuned in sa UAAP Cheer Dance Competition via our contacts' tweets! ;D

Mother Earth! :) Na sa aking pagkakaalala, before I took this picture, ay kumakain ng Size Does Matter sandwich! Hehe! :D

I was supposed to leave early (with Melai) so we can go back to our bazaar, but the delubyo stopped us. So we stayed in the event hanggang end...Which is super sulit naman! :)

Prizes were given away! :) Pax won a Tripologie bag, Dianne and Melai also got beauty products! :D

Ms. Lace had to bato-bato-pick with another blogger for a prize coz they picked number 6...or is it 9? :D Haha!

The participating brands with exhibits:

Easy Pha-Max Wheatgrass:

So interested with drinks na pampalinis ng tummy...Mga cleansing / detox drinks!

Free BP Check up:

I also had hot milk tea c/o Lipton! :D Yum! Perfect lang sa rainy weather, kulang nalang kahugs, hahaha!

You can choose any of the following, and pwedeng bumalik balik! O diba, bongga Lipton! Senkyu!

Leslie's chichiria stall: presenting Farmer John:

I also finally met Ms. Rita of ForMe! :) It was a pleasure for me to work on a feature for this brand before...Hoping for a repeat! I love Golden ABC! :) 

Kai was also there! :) And Jen, but we don't have a photo, huhu! Love these girls! :)

Size Does Matter gave away burgers and footlong! Dame! Kahit vegeterinerien ako (hahaha) I took one for Ate na masipag na nagbabantay sa mga "alahas" ko sa bazaar that time, hehehe:

Oooh! Kaya pala Size Does Matter! 

Close up!

Sir Azrael! :D
