Blogapalooza 2014: A First Timer and a Big Winner

It was last August when I first knew about Blogapalooza event on one of the blogs I am subscribed with. Without second thoughts I registered.

And then there was #Blogapalooza. October 11, 2014

It was a great day! The weather looks gloomy but not a drop of rain poured during the event. It was a funny experience because I went out of the house as early as 8:45AM and arrived at the place by 9:00AM, so I went out of the car knowing that SM Aura will probably open their doors to guests around 9:30, so I waited at the parking area, only to realize that I was not parked at SM Aura but Market Market, so I hurried up and feeling stupid. It was 9:20 something when I left Market Market and proceeded to Aura...

There I was standing first in line at the SMX Convention..YESSSSS I was the earliest of the early birds -wink- but no, there's no prize for that, or I just missed it.

doors aren't opened yet and it's just 10AM

Anyway, it was a wonderful and successful event. So many booths from sponsors, I was going crazy which one to visit first. I haven't seen any familiar faces yet, so I just took a sneak peek of the sponsor booths.

I was relieved to have my business cards ready but because it is limited, I just have to choose which booth most interests me to drop my card. It never occurred to me that it is a fun, really fun event because of the games each sponsor prepared to amuse us. To sum up the most enjoyed parts of #Blogapalooza, these made my day even if it's a bit embarrassing:

Chooks-To-Go Wii-like game and I won a top score prize of the delicious 
"hindi na kailangan ng gravy" Roasted Chicken

Zomato dare challenge, wherein I also won a great prize
I have to get 6 people wearing red shirts 

Another winning for the day was from ZING Rewards.
I stacked up dice with the help of chopsticks, sadly no picture of me doing the feat

Several sponsor booths I have not visited because of my little stay there, but it was indeed enjoyable. I even got the greatest prize from it at the end of the day. And it's because of this entry from 

The contest is for the most likes and I got 120+ by 12AM
What did I win?
P10,000 worth of Gift Certificates from House of Lasagna
Am I jumping for joy? Of COURSE, and until now I can't believe it. 
My experience from the House of Lasagna will be posted soon.

This is their booth at the Blogapalooza, my love-at-first-taste of their mouthwatering Beef Lasagna.

Well, obviously I didn't go home empty-handed, but both hands are numb and aching because of the freebies... Look at this photo of me at the Ace Water and Spa booth, I am carrying just half of the freebies I got and yet it already looked heavy with those tight-looking muscles LOL
