It is not unbeknownst to our dear readers that we, from time to time attend blogger events, launches and the like. While we know that there are some people who are absolutely appalled at the idea of brands taking advantage of the online media (and vice versa), we figured that it really is just a matter of filtering through the invites. For one, there are a handful of innovative brands and services that we came to know via this avenue.
So when I learned about Blogapalooza holding its very first event last month, well, let’s just say, I was curious to check it out. Aside from being able to catch up with blogger friends, I also got to hear from brands (most of which we already patronize) and got acquainted with an interesting few that we only heard about at the event. It was all in all a very good avenue that WhenInManila came up with that allowed for brands to be introduced to the online community. And what savvy and catchy name, at that. 🙂

Did I mention that I also scored a huge Carlton luggage at the event when I helped solve a fellow blogger’s dilemma of having to commute the enormous hard case luggage home? At a price that she could have refused but chose not to. Thanks again, Nicely! It will be perfect for my next getaway with my boys. Thanks to Tripologie too! They have branches in Eastwood and Alabang. It was my first to hear about Tripologie. We only go to one travel bag shop before. Now, there’s another travel stuff store we can check out that also carries the quality brands we love – Tripologie! 🙂
And here is when I launch another blog contest. I’m raffling off 5 of the Gift Certificates I received during the Blogapalooza event and 1 Phiten Rakuwa Bracelet.

*To be fair with other contest joiners, I will be requiring the drawn winner to send me a scanned ID for verification. There were a few entries in my previous giveaways that were suspicious.

I cannot help but notice that there are a whole bunch of people who are joining my beauty giveaway than those that I give away on Marriage and Beyond. We’re actually thinking of giving away a PS3 and an Xbox game next, gears of war 3 ashes to ashes. These giveaways are running until Christmas season. Contest joiners, please make sure to follow the easy instructions. 🙂
