Resorts World Manila’s Red Carpet Event for Bloggers

Last June 18, a number of bloggers were invited by Mr. Jonas Diego for the orientation of the Casino Royale Blogger’s Red Carpet Night at Resorts World Manila. To be honest, we were all overwhelmed with the hospitality of the staff an crew of the 6-star hotel. I am with the second batch and i got excited upon seeing the sample of the room and the entertainment area. Also, seeing the staff and crew behind us (I think there were 25 staff all in all. Pwedeng 1 is to 1 sa service LOL) made us feel special. Aw πŸ˜€

Fast forward to June 26, 2009. Since I was upset with the Death of Michael Jackson and i’m a bit moody that morning, I decided not to attend the special night. Later on, my blogger friends were texting me and they were forcing me to go so I went πŸ˜€

Rizal and the rest of her angels picked us up at Starbucks 6750 with the other bloggers near Makati area. I got pretty excited upon seeing the other bloggers dressed in their formal attire. Seeing the male bloggers on their suit is just cute teehee πŸ˜€ After the soft launch at the lobby, we were all invited to go to the second floor and play at the Entertainment room.

AJ, Edward, James, Pia and I went straight to Roulette. It’s the easiest game and yeah, the guy in white polo in-charge for the game is cute teehee πŸ˜€

Later on, we tried playing the Baccarat, where all you have to do is bet on the PLAYER or BANKER. We were playing like little kiddos. The staff then approached us and asked James and Ed to act as dealers.

After an hour of practice, we were divided into different groups and we were tasked to compete with each other. I played with James, Pia, Ed, Dax and Arvin. Luckily, I won πŸ˜€ I was shocked to know that I’ll be our group’s representative for the final round.

Baccarat is serious business!

At the final round, I competed with Trixie, Peter, Aaron, Fritz and Paolo. We were all serious on applying our own strategies to win. I believe that in this game, you have to have all the luck in the world. No science and math involved. Just pure luck.

I Won! I Won! I Won!

Luckily, I won as second placer to Fritz teehee. I garnered 30,000+ points. If only we could have those chips converted into cash LOL. Each of the finalists got one bottle of wine and as a second placer, I won a Philips Go Gear Mp3 player (will blog about it at my Tech blog soon).

When I first stepped in the venue, I hardly knew anything about the games. I am thankful for the organizers for educating us on how to play these games for free. It was also a night where I was given a chance to bond with the bloggers whom I haven’t really had the chance to talk to.

After the Casino Royale event, Aaron and I went to Starbucks for a short talk about real life gambling and we headed straight to Banchetto after. We ate at Gerry’s Grill and saw a very big rat while munching on Nilagang Bulalo 😐 Oh, please do not picture that scenario. It’s too dirty 😐

I am sure all of the bloggers who were able to attend the event are excited for the Grand opening on August 8! I would love to go back to the place with some of friends. πŸ˜€

Special thanks to  Iris and Dax for the other photos.
