PANDESAL PARTY: Occasions of Joy's 1st Year Blogversary

Pandesal Party was born out of admiration, respect and gratitude for a friend .

This was the original e-invite that my cousin Christopher 'Oyic' Alberto made (I forced him to!), unfortunately Active Fun - SM North Edsa was not able to accommodate my preferred time slot

Good thing another sponsor offered thirty thousand pesos for venue and buffet lunch, in exchange for some favors...

(My knight and shining armor, Sir John, who always save me from trouble, embarrassment and whatever problems I get into)
Venue: 49th floor, Baby Nathan's Kitchen, One San Miguel Bldg, One San Miguel Ave., Pasig City
Breakfast was of course pandesal, courtesy of Walter Bread, and sausages and other frozen food courtesy of Break Time

Jem Garcia led the Opening Prayer by performing 'The Prayer' thru a violin
Jem is the daughter of my Blogger friend Lariza Garcia
In all the events and parties I host, I give credit to the early bird/s. Here with Nora Aquino of More Than Just A Sham, came in super early (she saw how I work prior to the event, Nora ---please don't tell them I'm toxic...)

First Speaker, my mentor and friend, Pehpot Pineda of Make or Break, talked about the Diaries of A Mommy Blogger. In summary, Peh or P said that family must come first before blogging

This was a surprise. I asked why there were 5 cupcakes instead of 1, Beds said to represent my Voltes V girlfriends namely, Jen, Jing, Beds, Lyn and Honey

2nd Speaker was Joney Uy of NomNom Club and Bloggers Manila, talked about Etiquette for Bloggers

Ms. Ruth Fungo, Operations Manager of Svelte Wellness Center

Shy Ms. Cel Mabalot of Elro Corp., distributor of top brand Grendha, Ipanema and Rider

Ms. Timmy Del Agua of A-Z Direct Marketing, distributor of Time, Readers Digest and other popular books and magazines

Ms. Shirly Balgua, Marketing Officer of Walter Bread

Mr. Julius Barbero, Marketing Officer of Clarity Aesthetic, Medical and Dental Center

Ms. Imee Plateja, Intern Writer of MOD Magazine

Mr. Ryan De Vera, owner of Love Blends Coffee Souvenirs

Proud to be Dona Maria Brown Rice user and speaker

Parties will never be complete without games. First Game: Eat My P, with couples Honey Bonaggua of BreakTime and Arnold Agulto of Graphixcel, and Jeff Siy of Philippine Promos Freebies and Contest and Melody Co of Girl Kuripot

Honey and Arnold won

Mommy Bloggers had fun with the 2nd Game , Hot Pandesal - more like Hot Potato Game
