"To Blog = To Share, To Connect, To Create, To Inspire"
It was my very first Blogapalooza event last Saturday October 11, 2014 at SM Aura's Convention Hall. It was really fun! And I don't even know how to start this post because there were a lot of pictures and I felt so overwhelmed with a lot of things going on, on the said event. Plus this is my first blog event ever! (Certified blogger na ba 'ko? He He He)
To learn more about Blogapalooza click my previous post here.
When I heard that the Blogapalooza was rescheduled, I was happy because I will be able to attend. But on second note I realized that it will be a tiring day! It was the same date with our year end party at our company. So I need to go at SM Aura early to finish going to the booths in 2-3 hours. I was really wrong. Why? I didn't realized that there were so many booths! Hindi ko nga napuntahan yung iba. And I wasn't able to join the raffles and contest. Well I still had fun even in a short period of time. Next time dapat whole day na ko! Ha Ha Ha! I also regretted not having a calling card. I only knew it the night before so I don't have time to prepare na.
So this is me, my outfit is "lagare" din that time because I still need to wear that to our company event.
I felt giddy seeing my name as a blogger. :)
|with a fellow mommy blogger, Celerhina Aubrey|
I met a new friend at the event while on the line. Her name is Celerhina Aubrey, also a mom like me. We get along so well. Pareho kameng newbie sa event na 'to pero we had a lot of fun joining contest na nanalo pa kame. You can visit her blog here. With us (before I went to my other event) is her bestfriend Jerellt, you can visit her food and travel blog here.
|with my idol Divine Lee|
While on the line, Victor Basa passed and I said "Hi"! Then came Divine Lee! Grabe hindi ko alam na andun sya as speaker. I blogged about her here. Sayang lang at medyo nagmamadali sya kaya hindi kame masyadong nakapagchikahan. She is super nice nga in person!
I don't have a really decent images of the booths. Sorry, halatang nagmamadali kasi ako. Plus madame ng tao ng mga time na nakapasok kame sa loob ng hall.
Dyson is a company for vacuums. Hindi ako masyadong nagstay sa booth na 'to. Kasi I myself don't know how to use vacuum. Ha Ha Ha!
