Virtual No More: 100+ Bloggers Meet at Taste Asia



It was my second time to attend a bloggers' meet. The first was during the i-Blog 3 held at UP this year. I have known about the event through Armand Frasco (a.k.a. Bluman) of Pinoycentric.com who urged me to register in the event.

I came not knowing what to expect, so I waited for the event to unfold. I finally met Karla Maquiling (also of PinoyCentric.com) at the venue, with her friends Tanya and Ailene. As I go ala societal voyeur, I've seen familiar faces like Carlo Tecson, a fellow photographer and listmember at PhiPho & PhPhoto, and Janette Toral . Got also a chance to have a chat with Aileen Apolo, Google Philippines Country Consultant, Ian Co of Tower Publishing, Inc., Robert Kwee, EVP of SM Hypermarket together with Josie Gan, AVP for Marketing & Promotions. Fellow bloggers I met were Geri Barcelona, Juan Karlo Licudine and Lalon dela Rosa.

Food was more than enough and drinks were kept flowing. The organizers too was very generous and made sure each won't go home empty handed. Bagful of giveaways (containing Walker shirt, notebook, socks, and complimentary cards for Bidwise) and mugs was raffled off.

Thanks to Aileen Apolo and SM Hypermarket for this initiative.

@ Aileen - Likewise, a million thanks!

@ Kirby - I was actually trying to access your profile but apparently, its not available. if you're interested in learning photography, there are two things you can do: (1) read/ study photography -its principles (you can google it) and (2) have a camera & shoot. :)
