I have kept my distance from the blogger scene, the meetups, and anything else that would remind me that I should have probably considered getting into this possible revenue-stream source, since I’ve been keeping web journals for about 6 years already, blah blah blah, but the promise of free food got me.
So, I was at the Taste Asia Blogger Food Fest last night, at the SM Mall of Asia, where 100++ bloggers converged, and were fed generously by SM Hypermart’s Taste Asia.
Met up with Karla, the de facto photo buddy at events happening southside of the metro, and got to greet familiar faces, and meet new ones: Aileen Apolo (Google Country Representative), Juned (who camera-geek-talked with me, as usual), Markku, Jayvee, good ol’ college buddy Jonas delos Reyes of Yehey, photography-curious stude Happy, Abel of Technoverde, a couple of PinoyTechBlog pioneers (him, him, and Abe was too busy), and a lot more.
How’sÂ theÂ food?Â Well, read the official SM Hypermart press release here. Nag-baonÂ akoÂ whenÂ IÂ sawÂ theÂ foodÂ crew stacking food on styro’s
Surprisingly, people I don’t know, err, know me. And I’m like, oh yeah, maybe its because I’m still on the PTB About page. But then they mention I take photos.
