It was Saturday, November 16, 2013. All eyes were at the SM Convention Center Hall 1 inside the SM Aura Premier mall in Taguig City for the 2nd installment of the biggest business-to-blogger exhibit in town – the 2013 Blogapalooza.

The event was co-sponsored by the lifestyle website When in Manila and Our Awesome Planet. And yours truly was grateful to be part of the event by being one of around 500 participants. Thanks to one of my blogging buddies who managed to invited me to sign up for Blogapalooza. Well, I never expected to be part of them either.

A lot of business groups went on to exhibit their own services and products to bloggers, such as Ambient Digital, Figaro Coffee, Enjoy Philippines, Bounty Fresh Chicken’s Chooks to Go, Hungry Juan, PLDT, The Mind Museum, Richwell Trading, View Park Hotel, Lazer Xtreme, Platowraps, Café France food group, and more.

Along the way, a lot of personalities took part in several speaking engagement sessions, such as Bogart the Explorer and Mickey Bustos , Jason Cruz, Philip Abadicio Karen Borador, the hosts from Magic 89.9’s evening prime time show Boys Night Out, members from the Writer’s Block Philippines to name a few. Tim Tayag’s Comedy Cartel done their part of providing comic relief for the audience.

The thing is I managed to come by there by around 1 in the afternoon, two hours from its launching (11 AM). And aside from that, I manage to re-acquainted with some of the members of the blogging industry whom I personally met at the 9th Philippine Blogging Summit a few months ago.

And just minutes after I personally went to the event itself, I managed to meet Bogart once again, and he also told us that Stanley Chi’s launching of his latest book will come in some time this December.
