Sorry for the crappy pictures nanaman hahaha (parang hindi na kayo nasanay, lol), I'm sure if you also try to document your outfitey din everyday, relate kayo na you have days talaga na "sayang naman ang outfit" (for me in this case, lakas maka pagurl!) so kahit bumaba na ang araw, gow picture padin bahaley na! ;p

Anyway, went to the beautiful Raffles Design Institute yesterday for their Trading Secrets event:

Trading Secrets is an exclusive workshop for our Bloggers United Participating Bloggers, which is basically on how to maximize bazaar participation and design your own booth space. Very useful for June 2!

We started with a hands on activity, where we were grouped by twos, and tasked to design our own "mock bazaar stall". Kinabahan me!

FASHION PHILE is Sarah Tirona and Krissy Cruz's mock stall, cute and parang ang mamahal ng bentahin a! :D

O diba, what is gold watch, hahaha:

Kitang kita bigla ang artsy side ni Sarah T:

Pero eto ang for the win!!!! Makeshift dress gawa sa tagpi tagping art papers :D Project Runway lang ang labanan, Sarah? Lol:

Welcome to Bjorn Bedayo and Paul Chuapoco's stall! Ang techie, nakakainis!!!

Nakapaghanda talaga kayo ng powerpoint a, lol:


AND OVKORS! I had Ate Jen Maslang of as my "booth partner", so we called our stall SHOP GIRL! Welcome, mga suki! ;P

O diba, biglang nasa bentahin na rin yung Parisian Bag and Wedges ko, lol:

YesssMaamSeeeer! Lol! Welcome to the shop na bawal mag sapatos at blazer, haha! So eto pala yung feeling ng Hubadera fashion! shoz.

Our judges Ms. Gigi, Ms. Nela, and Ms. Mj checked our stalls one by one, and may Q&A portion pa...Thesis Defense? (nervous!!!!)

Seriously, though, we got insightful inputs from design experts from Raffles Design Institute, as they deliberated and gave suggestions as to how we can make our bazaar stalls much more appealing to the market:

Before they announced the winning booth, snack time muna courtesy of Bread Talk Philippines! Yuuum!

We proceeded to the classroom for a wrap up and a discussion on Maximizing Your Investment. 

Very helpful tips!!! I hope I can apply everything for my upcoming SUPERB bazaar this Wed-Sunday at the SMX Hall 4! (Lakas maka segue, hehehe)

Uy sila Krissy and Sarah participative "front row" girls, hehe:

AAAAND the winning booth is....Paul the PR Guy x Bjorn MNL! :) Suuuus dinaan sa gadget! ;P Hashtag bitter. Haha!
 Congrats! Penge ng purple card! 

I've always wondered how must it be like to have these crazy blogger kids as my classmates! Kaguley man, they're also some of the most passionate people I've met. The Trading Secrets by Raffles Design Institute was a cool experience, I hope we can have this more often!
