Starbucks Rewards Card launch party in Glorietta

Congratulations to Starbucks Philippines for launching their rewards card for their loyalty customers, a card that can transform our visit to their stores into rewards. The launch was held in Glorietta event center, it’s the new event center and it’s my first time to stay there to attend an event and also cover it here for my card. Lots of Starbucks fans went there to celebrate the success of the new card launch and also win some goodies by participating in some activity booths. Starbucks also offered a challenge and they gave away free 100 cards for the 1st 100 people who lined up at the event gate. Lucky win!

I think this is the 1st ever grand event of Starbucks after so many years.. tama ba ?
The card was shown to us a day before the main launch, and I was one of the lucky people to own a card early. You can read my feature, info and tips about the card here at - http://azraelsmerryland.blogspot.com/2013/08/tips-and-info-starbucks-reward-card-is.html

Q and A games – if your answer is correct then you win a card with P300 load. We know all the answers but we seated at the left side of the audience area and the host can’t even spot us there when we raise our hand first to answer the Q and A game. Here we see Jonel bravely raised his hand even if the question is not yet given hahahaa, it’s a 50-50 chance. Thanks Jonel…that time..we got spotted and the spot light sunburned me for a few minutes during the game.

There’s a jump shot photo contest at the activity booth area – 10 awesome jump shots were selected and won a free Starbucks card with P300 load.

Entertainment time!!! When I read from the invitation that Zia Quizon and Rico Blanco will be there to perform live on stage,I didn’t think twice and agreed to come and attend the event. I like Zia Quizon bec. of her style in singing and her voice is unique from other singers. And if the name Rico Blanco flashes before you – yes.think of Rivermaya and also Rico himself, Its been years after my last view of his live performance on stage – its like listening to a record bar – his voice and music mix on stage is always perfect like listening to a CD audio.
