Bloggers Royale: Davao Bloggers Christmas Party 2012

Photobucket

"Let's end the year with a *BANG* by taking part in this year's Davao Bloggers Christmas Party. Entitled "Bloggers Royale", this year's party will be nothing short of glamorous with a glittery Casino-themed venue, a flurry of surprise red carpet activities and bloggers masquerading in James Bond and Bond Girl-esque fashion! Trust me, this event is not to be missed!"
  




When I received this event notification on my Facebook account, I got excited and immediately pressed "Join" without event thinking about the classes I had to attend on that day. After confirming my attendance for the most-awaited Christmas party of Davao Bloggers, I started to feel pressure. First, I thought of the four subjects I would miss because of the event. Second, I had no idea what to wear for Bloggers Royale. Some of my blogger friends already started to post updates and Instagram photos of their outfits for the party. Third, my hectic schedule at school prevented me from doing all the necessary preparations. But when the big day came, I couldn't believe that everything was perfect.

Davao Bloggers celebrated early Christmas at My Hotel. See Picture Above. This is the wackiest photo I have on my folder. It's supposed to be a formal group picture but since there were many photographers taking their shots, we were confused where to look. Oh well, such is evident on our faces!

It's good to know that I belong to a dynamic blogger organization in the city headed by amazing officers. What I love about this group is that I am with the persons who have the same interests as I do. These persons also love to blog about anything under the sun, attend blog/media events and enjoy what Davao has to offer.

I really enjoyed the wonderful night I spent with my fellow Davao bloggers. Everything went well. Aside from the fact that I celebrated the first Christmas party for the year 2012 with them, I also received two awards on that night - Best Personal Blog and Blogger of the Year. Earning these wonderful awards made my night completely unforgettable. I will share about it on my next blog post. Meanwhile, please see the videos below for the President Reports and Sir Bert Barriga's talk.

I must say, Bloggers Royale: Davao Bloggers Christmas Party 2012 was a complete blast! I'm looking forward to spending another year with them.

  5. Awesome pics from your Davao Bloggers Party Algene! Congrats too for bagging an award that night. I saw it in one of your FB posts... I think :)

    I wish we have that kind of gathering too here in Dubai. I'm not sure if there are many bloggers here. Even then, it won't be as fun as you have there back home because you all or almost all of you are familiar with each other.

    Post more pics of the event please. It's so nice to see who's who ;)

  6. From the FB photo oops I saw from some of the members, I could tell you all had a blast. It's great that all members were very cooperative and did not hesitate to sport your royal best :-)

    I have to say this again too, Algene. You do deserve both awards. It's hard earned because despite juggling school and blogging, you were able to keep up managing your multiple blogs.

    Congrats and keep up the good work!
