Blogapalooza's Second Serving

Blogapalooza is an event organized by When in Manila and Awesome Planet, headed by Vince Golangco, Francis Simisim and Anton Diaz.  

The first ever Blogapalooza was held last September 17, 2011 at the Fullybooked - Bonifacio High Street for purposes of Business to Blogging or B2B. 

Blogapalooza's second serving was held last Saturday, November 16, 2013 at SM Aura in Taguig, with hundreds of Bloggers having fun, joining games and other activities. 

Though the aim of the event stays the same (to bring mutual benefits to both business and bloggers), the organizers added "The Pink Piggy Bank Movement" for Yolanda victims. The aim was to gather as much as P50,000 coming from Bloggers. The organizers of Blogapalooza will then match the amount. At the end of the event, though the Bloggers raised only P32,000, Vince, Francis and Anton matched it still at P50,000. Hats off to these wonderful guys.

A full schedule started as early as 11am with an inaugural ribbon cutting to formally open the event. GoNegosyo’s Ramon Lopez, AFFI’s Armando Bartolome, Mikey Bustos, Bogart the Explorer and Jako assisted Vince, Francis and Anton in the ribbon cutting.

 There were many fun games that brought back memories of my Elementary and High School Fair:

Food, food, food!!!


YouTube sensations Mikey Bustos and Bogart the Explorer briefly talked about their experiences as Vloggers (Video Blogers).

The segment of Tim Tayag glued me on my seat as I laughed my heart out with Tim's stand up comedy.  Caught on camera, even Vince laughed hard while watching Tim.

Philip Abadicio of TV5's Philip Lifestyle Guy talked about the importance of online media.
While Ana Santos talked about making money out of writing, blogging and a lot more.

The sexy dj, actress and model - Karen Bordador

Among the talk, her story moved everyone in tears as she related her touching experience while in Tacloban during  and after Yolanda storm surge.
