Last October 3, I attended a Red Ribbon event for the bloggers of Davao, GenSan, and Cagayan de Oro who were in Manila to attend WordCamp Philippines 2010. The event, which took place at the Fort Bonifacio branch of Red Ribbon, was organized by Red Ribbon’s Marketing Team through blogger Jonel Uy.
I have always liked Red Ribbon products so I was super delighted that they treated us to an early lunch consisting of a combination of their bestsellers and newest offerings like salisbury steak, pancit palabok, and crispy chicken. I also had their bestselling chicken empanada, a slice or two of Mango Passion cake, and one of their signature blended drinks.
It’s almost two weeks after WordCamp Philippines 2010 and I admit I haven’t blogged about it yet. I’m still too tired to blog about it in full-length so I thought I’d just share some pics before and after the event here.
Well, just a background, I was one of the event’s project leads. My tasks included coordinating with the different Avatar Media team members on WordCamp-related stuff…you know, like “you need to get this done by this time”, or “what’s the latest update on”…During the event, I helped out during the registration and headed the food committee.
I was in General Santos City late last month for the Tuna Festival. My group, Avatar Media, was already very busy with WordCamp Philippines 2010 preparations but three of us managed to get a couple of days off to be one with the Generals in celebrating the 42nd Charter Day Anniversary of their beloved city.
We arrived around lunchtime of September 24, Friday. My good friend Avel took us to the beach (sorry, I can’t remember the name) for a quick stop at the LGU-GenSan Family Day. There, we met Sox Blogger Ric Dumalay and Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio. We also grabbed a few bites, just enough to whet our appetites for our next stop — lunch at Harvey’s.
