For the very first time, I stepped in together with 200+ bloggers in Thunderbird Resorts in Binangonan, Rizal.

One of the first blog events Sago attended is the Belo Open House for Bloggers last August 16, 2008 at the Belo Tomas Morato Branch and Packo’s Grill. I am proud to say that I took part in organizing the said event as I used to work in the company as their Web Marketing Specialist.

It was Sago’s first event in a clinic and if I’m not mistaken, Dr. Hayden Kho Jr. is Sago’s first Celebrity Pal. Isn’t he lucky?
