My third time in Cebu is very memorable and should I say ‘historical’ because I witnessed the first ever Philippine Blog Awards ’09 Visayas Leg last October 19 at Ayala City Sports, Cebu City. The event was well-attended by Cebu-based bloggers, PBA Organizers, volunteers, press and media from the Queen City of the South.
PBA '09 Visayas Leg - Major Success!
Ada and I booked a flight to Cebu last month via Zestair (and I regret my choice of airline LOL). We originally wanted to go to Cebu then take an hour ride to Bohol for Saturday and go back to the City by Sunday morning to attend the awards night at the evening. Plans changed due to the weather reports and lack of funds 😛
Our first day in Cebu with some of our Manila blogger friends is made of pure win. I got the chance to patch up with Pangga couple Hana and Markku, who were my former workmates (that deserves another blog entry hehe). We got the chance to gallivant around the city and visit Talisay, Kuya Markku’s hometown.
Let’s go back to the awards night 😛 After eating our lunch at Mooon Cafe, Ada, Winston, Van and I went to the venue to simply check the place. We went back to our hotel room at Sampaguita Suites to sleep (yes, sleeping in Cebu is a great experience! haha). We dressed up at around 5pm and went straight to Ayala City Sports for the awards night.
During my interview for Qtube Taken by Ada Lajara
After more than a month, my Bloggers Digest feature at QTube was finally shown. I am really happy with the outcome of the feature since they showed some of my blogs like Micamyx (Personal), Myx Technology (Tech), Pinoy Fans Club (Entertainment), Patay Gutom (Food) and of course, Missing Carlo (Personal/Autism). The main reason why I got lots of readers at my i.ph way back is because of my daily thoughts on my brother, Carlo. Now I believe that he is really my lucky gem. Seeing our photos on tv just feels good and i’m no longer emo about it. I am happy because those who were able to watch it that knows Carlo personally said that it somewhat made them cry because they miss seeing our kulitan together. Btw, he is 5’6 tall according to mom 😛
Babalik sa Sugbu! (na naman!)
For the third time this year, I am going to Cebu with Ada, Winston and some of the Manila bloggers who will be attending the first ever Philippine Blog Awards-Visayas. I am pretty excited about this since its a first for the Visayas bloggers and I think this is my chance for me to bond with most of them since I failed to do it the last time. I am also excited on who will win at the different categories specifically for the Reader’s Choice since most of the nominees are my friends like Byahilo, Sinjin, Kevin, Bryan Karl and McBilly. Waaaah kalokah kayo LOL. Cebu is also a special place for me since the place itself has the power to make or break my heart (go figure out what that means 😛 ) and yeah, I am craving for Pochero and Lechon! Rawr!
