The Davao Blog Party #1

Blogie, Marc, Kim, Ria, Jun and I met a few hours ago at Blugre MTS to discuss our upcoming Davao Blog Party to be held on Saturday, March 17, 2007. The newly-opened NetFront Coffee Shop and Internet Cafe will serve as the venue. There were a few jokes thrown here and there but I’m glad to report that this time we got somewhere. Kim was nice enough to agree to plug the event on her radio show (she DJ’s part-time). Apart from that she’s also responsible for “physical arrangements”. Sounds like a weird sexual medical saga, but no that just means that she decides where all the attendees will be seated. We joked that Ria would be cooking the food at NetFront’s kitchen. But no she’ll only coordinate with whoever will cater the event. There were more senseless stuff about chicken sandwiches, cheese pimiento spreads and oven toasters to be raffled off which I’d rather not dwell on.

Abe Olandres, Janette Toral and Aileen Apolo are three reasons why you should be there! Abe is none other than the Yuga that we all look up to (notworthy). Janette Toral owns the uber-popular Digital Filipino club. Last but not the least, Aileen Apolo is the Philippines’ rep for The Google.

Our list of sponsors include:

Thanks guys.

If you’re interesed in sponsoring our event, please visit this page to view our packages. There will also be awards given out to the emptiest blog, oldest blog, even the bitchiest blog. Dang, Kim nominated me. I’ll have to tone down a bit I guess.

Holler out to Blogie for leading the way.
