Chronicles of a Young Wife: Blogapalooza 2013 – The Stars

First. Time. Ever!

Blogapalooza Manila Business to Blogger Networking Event Philippines WhenInManila (9)

First Blogapalooza. First segment.

It would be a very long post if I put everything in one go. So here is the first part of my first ever Blogapalooza – The Stars! and when I say Stars – I refer to the PRs, hosts and guest speakers and presenters and err, mascots! This blog was one of the many fortunate blogs to be invited to this exclusive business-to-blogger networking event called: Blogapalooza.

Night before the event, I read a mail about the “GrabTaxi”. Download the app. Book a taxi. Redeem a cash-back on the event. That was so cool! I was planning to ask hubby to drop me of SM Aura (since I don’t have a license yet. Boo!) but decided to give this app a try, and “get in” to this hot gimmick! I tried for an hour to get a cab but unfortunately, it wasn’t not a success. My hunch was that C5 was not moving… That didn’t break my spirit though. I rode a public fx (I don’t want to bother hubby since he started designing and I insisted to commute) and c5 was like a long, long trailer train – of cars! I knew it! Good thing the driver knew some shortcut!

Ahh! Finally made it to SMX! 🙂

A short queue on the registration booth.


I just made it in time to ask Mikey Busto for a photograph. Too bad he already removed his wings! Yup, he’s an angel. He apologized for removing his too heavy wings. His feathers are white and he is super nice!


Missed to ask for a photo with Bogart the Explorer but finally I see him live in action! Ha! Finally, I entered the function room with a tag bearing my name and of this blog.

It was so overwhelming. People are everywhere having fun! Rounding the booths, playing fun games, listening to talks, and winning prizes every hour! Ha!

Just what i need! A cup of

first before I go round the booths!

I personally meet, greet and chat with Ms. Karen Bordador in an exclusive sparty and ever since I’m a follower, especially on IG! She is super nice in person! Very intimidating at first (who wouldn’t be? She’s a vixen for crying out loud!) but when the ice breaks (and I tell you, she usually is the one breaking the ice. hehe!) Happy to know this happy bunny will be hoppin’ and be one of the guest speaker of this event. Woohoo!blogapalooza np lololola 021

Days before this event, Philippines middle and south parts were hit by the #strongeststormontheplanet – #YolandaPh #TyphoonHaiyan. Very devastating indeed. I myself didn’t sleep well after watching several clips on what is going on out there.  So proud and happy to say that we had fun plus, we got to help the #YolandaPH victims as well with #Blogapalooza’s #ThePiggyBankMovement!
