Blogapalooza 2015

October 25, 2015 – What is Blogapalooza?

Blogapalooza is a community of Bloggers and Online Influencers wanting to feature and connect with Businesses

Blogapalooza started in 2011 with an annual Blogapalooza event that run for a day. It was an invite only event that only Bloggers and Businesses can attend. The rule was simple, Businesses present their products / services and build relationships with the Bloggers, while Bloggers get to see what’s new and network with Businesses to make deals happen.

To be honest, I don’t know that this kind of event where bloggers and businesses meet exists. I just found it out lately when Mam Kristalyn told me about it. So anyway, here’s what happened on my very first Blogapalooza Experience!

Well at first, I was really contemplating whether to go or not but since I’ve read so many positive comments and blog posts about the past blogapalooza event so why not give it a try, right? I was thankful my boyfriend was with me or else I wouldn’t have gone there in the first place.

THIS IS THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY DAY! Photos with the band Kamikazee. ♡ Look at my huge smiles! Was also feeling too awkward during this time since a lot of people (in queues) were watching. Thanks JB Music for making this happen.

These are the only decent shots Asis took during the event. So, that’s pretty much about it. Good thing we arrived at the venue around 2ish pm where there were only few bloggers and guests milling about. I was actually expecting more but it still turned out okay, nonetheless. I also got lots of freebies, discount cards and flyers/brochures. It was a fun event and being with the boyf made it even more special. *cheesy, i know* It was just sad that I didn’t get to meet any bloggers my age. Oh well, maybe next time? :)


Around 4pm we decided to leave and since we didn’t want to be stuck during rush hour we decided to eat somewhere near our place and we chose Lola Ote in Sct. Esguerra near ABS-CBN. I’ve read a lot of positive comments about their BBQs & Isaws so we both agreed to try there.

Thank goodness, we decided to eat here. Their bbq and isaws taste great! Very delish at a very affordable price. Will surely eat here next time! Want to try their Liempo, sisig and chicharon Bulaklak. *pampasakit ng batok* HAHA! & yes, their idea to hang the isaw/bbq was really clever. Galing.

The only decent photo of us together. Both looking worn out because of the scorching heat.

All in all, it was definitely a (Sun)day well spent with my other half <3

  2. omg this is such a cool event! I wonder if there’s a Blogapalooza in my area… It must be hectic with so many bloggers in once place, everyone trying to experience everything to have fun and also to have content for their blog, and also everyone scramming to get pictures of everything :P But it’s always so nice to be surrounded by people who have similar interests! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

  3. If there was one thing that inspired me to return to WordPress, it’s a post like this. The length, the details, the intimacy of the shots. Para bang, it convinces you that the blogger is an actual individual, instead of an online indentity. Ganun. Ahh! I hope to meet you in person! At sana kahit isang post card ko sayo, may makarating hahahaha! Nakakaimbyerna yang Philippine postal service, in fairness!

    • Haha! True. Sana talaga matanggap ko at sayang naman yung mga pinadala mo. Lintik na yan. Hays, you should post more often. Mga travels mo lalo na with Jenny. Ang saya saya niyo lang. At syempre yung pagbebake mo. Grabe, nakakalaway yung gawa mong macarons. <3
