My experience in Bloggersfest 2011

What: Bloggersfest 2011
Where: Thunderbird Resort Rizal
When: April 16, 2011

 Ito ang aking unang pagkakataon na umattend sa isang bloggers forum kung saan may matutunan ka sa iba't-ibang aspect ng pagblog..
Kwekwento ko ang ilang sa mga happening sa bloggersfest

Maaga ako gumising para umattend ng bloggersfest, at dumating ako sa Makati pick up point ng bandang 8:00Am oo at dahil 9:00am pa naman ang usapan eh i decide na magbreakfast muna sa Macdo.
At ang aking inorder eh ang 50 value breakfast na pancake with coffee.
After ko magbreakfast eh dumiretso na ko sa may Leviste kung saan andoon ang pick up point ng bus, kaso medyo nalate lang ng kaunti yung bus.

While on going to the location eh nakaramdam na ako ng init (di init ng ano ha) kung di init ng aircon dahil parang humihina na iyo or i rather to say parang wala na tong lamig.
Sa may banda ortigas extenson na kami nun yung nagsimula yung paghina ng aircon eh aya yun, paypay to the max ang nagyari sa amin.
By the way yung oras ng pick up ng bus sa amin eh  9:00am to 9:30 pero ang nagyari eh umalis na kami sa makati ng bandang 10:00 i dont why 10:00AM na kami nakaalis.

Fast-forward lang tayo ng kaunti ha..


In the way to the Thunderbird Resort grabe ang masasabi ko lang eh para kami pupunta ng Baguio dahil sa paikot-ikot pataas papunta mismo sa bundok ng Thunderbird Resort nakadating na kami don mga bandang 11:30Pm na.
At pagdating namn mismo sa Thunderbird Resort eh ayun registration na for the Bloggersfest and some freebies from the Thunderbird Resort sayang naubusan na kami ng porfolio ng resort kami medyo huli na kami dumating eh.
While waiting in the formal program eh nagkaroon muna ng isang raffle ng tshirt at take note nabunot ako, im so happy kasi bihira lang ako mabunot sa mga ganyang mga paraffle as in once in the bluemoon.

Ito yung tshirt oh..



Pagkatapos yun eh Lunch time n grabe talagang want to sawa ka sa food sobrang yummy..
Ang pinakagusto ko sa lahat eh yung leche plan..

At ito yung picture ng food..


Pagkatapos namin kumain eh nagsimula na ang Program..

The First program was the awarding of the Extra Ordinary

Bale 5 yung napiling most like Extra Ordinary Video

Base sa akin pagkakaalala eh ang mga nanalo eh sina Veronica,Gay,Shobert,Apple and Diane (Guys yung mga umattend sa bloggersfest correct me if im wrong.)

At syempre kung may most, eh may the best video of Extra Ordinary.

Walang iba kungdi si  Randolf Longious
      
And i think kung bakit siya nanalo eh dahil sa sobrang ganda ng video entry niya and nakakatuwa pa..


After noon eh ang Blogging 101 / Sharing your Story through personal blogging na pinangunahan ni Azrael Coladilla of Manila Bloggers Network.

 Sobrang dami kung nalaman sa kanya kahit sabihin na natin na may 1yr na rin ako sa blogging eh, ika nga nila iba pa rin kung manggagaling ito sa mga professional bloggers di ba?
