Last week I had the opportunity of per-registering to join the Manila Social Media Day, Quezon City side.
Chicsassymom had advised me about it and since the venue is just 10minutes from where i lived, a promise of unlimited tea beverages (in my mind, milk tea), and a chance of meeting Des of Chicsassymom, i said sure, why not.
So here I am, sans Des who dm-ed me that she was not feeling well that day and could no longer make it.  but i wanted to try the unli tea, so off i went.
Under the rainy conditions and a really sleepy day (i usually sleep the entire day of saturday unless there's a kpop or kfest event that i remember to go to) i checked out what was going on at the Quezon City side of the Social Media Day event.  I heard there was another one, simultaneous with this one, but at greenbelt 5.  coined by one tweeter, the 'sosyal' media day at greenbelt as a number of people were dressed in couture.  hehehe
I'm glad i went to the Quezon City SMDay as some of you know, i dislike dressing up to the nines, period.
Here at the QC side of things, we had a more organic and soCIAL gathering rather than a pa-sosyal one.  I knew absolutely NO ONE at this event.  But hey, the people at flawless philippines was there.  hehehe i didn't know this guy from adam either LOL.  hi there person from flawless!  i believe his last name is Mendoza.  sorry i was busy eating when all of this was going on.  
and there's King del Rosario, watching closely as the event unfolded.
yes, we were jam packed at Tea 101 on Tomas Morato
Direct Joey as part of the program for the night.
after the introductions, Direct Joey gave a short talk on life on the internet. LOL, naturally, the word troll came up.  ang dami kasi nun, regardless of topic, fandom, or blog/youtube channel, there will always be haters who can't seem to let things go specially when you have already.  and who keep taunting you at that.
and King gives Direct a certificate of recognition.
photo op ;-)
(yeah, si Tania lang talaga and Cynthia, apart from myself, who take good photos with my cam :-( )
the night went on as people took advantage of the unlimited tea
woot! Marissa of Manilenya Mom! she and i got to talking and she said she recognized me LOL while i generally wormed my way through the place relatively unnoticed LOL.  

there was this one guy, who asked:
what's your name? i simply replied Marge and i get a puzzled look, ok, i said kikaytrekkie 
his reply:  ah ikaw pala iyon
sabay dedma. 
hahaha keribels i came here for the free and unli tea.  but i didn't read the fine print or READ that it says unli tea not unli MILK tea.  hahaha oh well, i was already there, eh di bumili na lang ng milk tea.  i purchased an almond flavored milk tea with pearl and pudding, which like, serenitea, Tea 101 has the first two sinkers for free.
I also ordered a sampler platter of their finger food.  hehehe, real crabs are used (for now) on their crab balls.  

oh nice and pink!
thank you flawless philippines for the loot bag.  can't wait to try out your facial service and some of my readers are already waiting for me to have a giveaway with these whitening products as their prizes.
overall, for them it was a successful event.  while it was merely painless for me.  i'm glad i went.  it reinforced the fact we all have a voice.  and we, all who choose to make our voices heard had better be responsible of what we say.  like my old man always says, mean what you say and say what you mean! and you better have the spine and guts to stand by your word and have the same spine and guts to admit you have made a mistake and recant what ever wrongful thing you may have said.
hahaha yeah, Dad says that, to this day :P
so where were all of you all last Saturday night?

Nice naman, milk tea place yung venue. Pero di naman super crowded? :)

Marge said...

you know naman pinoys, the ones who pre-registered aka rsvp'd didn't show and the ones who didn't rsvp'd just showed up! so we were like sardines hahaha. but somehow, we fit and there were tents outside, anyhow :P
