Last Thursday night, SM Hypermarket–Mall Of Asia gathered about 400 bloggers for a huge party at Taste Asia. It was the first bloggers’ party that I ever attended. And for the first time, I realized how young the majority of Filipino bloggers are. Not that it mattered, because the PMN moms and I had fun just as the, uhmm, kids did! 😛
Cookie, who graciously hitched me a ride in her car, and I got to MOA at about 7:30 pm. There weren’t many people yet at the venue, but food and drinks were already starting to flow. A waiter offered us some cocktails and asked us what we’d like to drink. One of the choices was “green tea”, which I excitedly ordered. The refreshing green excited me all the more. But as it turned out, it was a cocktail mix of green tea extract and Ginebra San Miguel Gin! Thanks but no thanks. Diet Coke na lang please!
This was my dinner plate. I loved the pork barbecue (so tender and tasty) and baked mussels!
There was a CliqueBooth, which added more fun to the party! With Annamanila and Noemi dominating the scene, Cookie, Rowena, her sis Rhodora, and I had no choice but to try and squeeze in our faces. hehe 😛
With Anton of Our Awesome Planet and Cookie
The party was also the awarding night for winners of the SM Hypermarket Blog Writing Contest. The big winner was AnitoKid, who won a trip for two to Kuala Lumpur. Anton, above, won a digital camera for placing second, and Butch Dado (along with two others) a DVD player for placing third. My two friends, Dine and Annamanila, won kewl Nike sunglasses for their entries.
Everybody went home happy with nice goody bags. I got a bag of Sunsilk Shampoo and (possibly) one-year supply of Knorr Sinigang Mix! 😀 Thanks, SM Hypermarket, for organizing this fun event for bloggers.
