Sunday, December 28, 2008 launching event and Spa-rty

I got invited by Maan Tolentino to their website launching and community eyeball of their online blog-magazine-forum community for Filipinas, which is called, the event was held inside The Spa, Bonifacio High Street. The event seems to be for females only, but glad that I got invited from the organizers and did some photo snap shot activity for their web launching, and its nice that I did something good for their promotion of their website and event, hahaha didn't know that it was viral marketing :) (read more below)

I was there with Lace, my friends in the blogosphere, multiply and plurks, also my sister is there too. And I've met new friends and people from the different kind of industry, also Mike Abundo was there as to be the host of the show with Tintin Bersola-Babao. During the program, we were treated by cocktails by C3, and a flavored lambanog by Dory's Lambanog (of Candelaria, Quezon), and a shoulder and neck massage by The Spa. Then in the middle of the program, Fitness First conducted this dance exercise on the floor with the event attendees, saw some people dance gracefully, and I just laugh at myself because I'm not that good in dancing, so I declined some invitation to join with them hahaha, sorry guys. Then they raffled off cool items frm Intel, Lenovo, Island Roses, hotel GC, Spa GC, Mich Calica's designer bags and many more. Everyone at the event receive long stem pink roses, and it was given by the host of the event Mike Abundo, and also everyone took home a voucher and discount coupons of the Spa. Also Ms. Lella gave to all attendees a hand custom made bracelet accessory.

The event is great to meet and get to know the people inside the website of ProudlyFilipina, and also serves as a ground for newbies of the site to interact and go networking with fellow bloggers and internet users. The main website goal and mission is very simple "To bring together and unite Filipinas from all over the world where they can all learn and laugh, improve talents, meet new Filipinas, and collectively, guide each other to reach their goals and dreams." as it says in their about us page. And I didn't know that they have a very big number community not only here in the Philippines, but also participated by Filipinas in every part of the world.

The website has very nice content, and in blog platform, it is very easy to read it and post comments, and also interact with other readers, the website is also like a social networking site, that you can add your buddy list, do blogging, post photos and organize a group of online friends. There is also the forum, were you can post something on each Filipina related categories of Health, Beauty, Parenting tips, travel, hobbies and many more. Everyone can join, all you have to do is register and sign up your account and confirm it with your valid email address.

Being in online or offline, a new community emerges and is a perfect to start off the year 2009.

congrats to Maan and her team for putting up this new virtual hub for all Pinays!
