My 1st Blogger's Event

I started blogging last December 2009 and joined this beautiful community composed of equally talented and uber-friendly bloggers that is Nuffnang! :) They held a contest sponsored by GlutaMax last February - well, the rule of the contest is that you should write about your own personal transformation in your blog. I wrote up mine in the hopes of winning that much-coveted Apple MacBook Pro! (Refer to this link)

Fast forward to 1st week of April, I got an email from Nuffnang inviting me to the GlutaMax awards night happening at Eastwood City. You can just imagine how thrilled I was to attend my 1st ever blog event.  It was held on a Wednesday and all of my friends had work the following day so I didn't have a +1 that night.



The invitation was at 6pm so I got there a few minutes before 6.  There were only a handful of people the moment that I arrived and it was only around 6:30pm that people started pouring in.  There were a lot of bloggers present that night as well as people from the media.

The program started a little before 7 and the hosts that night were Mojo Jojo and Suzi from 89.9.



They served pastries and hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Delifrance and Old Vine.

Nyoy Volante was present that night to serenade all of  us.



They flashed the pictures of all the contestants on the big screen. There were 39 entries in total and mine was entry # 25.


(sorry for the quality of the pictures. The cam was acting up that night)


Though I didn't snag the MacBook Pro (DAMN!!!), my 1st ever Blogger's event was fun! I made new friends, ate a lot of paninis, drank a lot of iced tea.. and in the end, it was all worth it! LOL!

it's not the winning that will determine if you are magaling. it's the fact that you tried and experienced that event! sino ba sa mga friends ko ang naka-attend na ng blogger event? ikaw lang khacai, ikaw lang. hahaha. good job. :}
