Experience Visayas Blogging Summit 2011

I woke up at 5AM and took a bath immediately. I prepared myself for the Visayas Blogging Summit 2011 and I was really excited to meet my friends who I invited for the blogging summit. For breakfast, I was only drinking hot chocolate and ate some biscuits. I waved goodbye to my parents and told them that I would be late because it was a whole day event at SM City Cebu. Fortunately, I was able to take a ride of a KMK bus from Naga to SM City so I was able to take a nap there. Well, I was late and the bus was so slow.

 When I arrived at SM City Cebu, fortunately the event had not started yet. I registered and got a freebie. My friend Jan was not around yet so I waited for her. While waiting, I saw Sir Jobette, my SEO mentor and my computer teacher way back in high school. I greeted him and shook his hand. Then, Jan arrived and let them had their 'meet and greet.' After a while, Essel came. I was waiting for Manilyn though.

 I've got the chance to say hi to familiar faces that I have the chance to interact on social networks and had chit-chats with other blogger friends. A lot of Technologians from CIT-University attended the said event. At last, Manilyn arrived and girls were complete.

 I wasn't taking notes then so Jan and I were just listening by ear. If there were things I could not comprehend, well, Jan is my interpreter. He he he! By the way, we seated at the back and the four of us were so busy taking snapshots of us.

 The best things in life are free. Yes, who doesn't like freebies? The event was made possible by the main organizer, Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. and with its co-organizers and sponsors.

Miss Earth Beauties visited the blogging summit.  Even though I am a girl, I really admire their beauties.  Wish I could have their height.  Ha ha ha!

After all the speakers were done with their talks, here came with the raffles and prayed to be one of the winners.  Unfortunately I didn't win.  Manilyn was lucky enough because she won a GC worth P100 from Dream Coffee.  Funny, I was hoping to win a hotel overnight stay for two. LOL

The event ended sweet because I got the chance to eat Krispy Kreme for free.  Before the event, I was really excited to eat some and wanted to buy a box either in Ayala or IT Park.  Maybe, next time if I have another chance to go to the city.
