Bloggers' Blowout 1.0

Last Saturday, I was given an opportunity to be part of the first ever "Bloggers' Blowout"
which is a joint project of 
& AstroVision.
This exclusive event was held at AstroVision Greenbelt 5 branch.
AstroVision (AstroPlus) is the country's leading entertainment lifestyle store that prides itself in providing a wide array of products and maintaining an excellent customer service to ensure that consumers who leave the place will always have a smile on their faces :)  
The store caters not only for people who look for the latest in music, movies and gadgets, but also for hard to find labels (price range: roughly around 200-600 php). Some were imported titles coming from the US and Asia but it also has a solid campaign to support OPM by developing it's Independent Artist Lineup. Astro indeed reinvent itself to go with the current consumer demands. 
And speaking of reinventing, what better way to put your viewing pleasure to the next level than to take home this LG Cinema 3D TV. Get ready for the finest, most cinematic 3D entertainment you'll ever experience in the comfort of your own home...

I guess I better eat something because this might lead to something else *wink*. Oh! did I mention that in this event, they prepared sumptuous meal for all of us? Yum Yum! :) 
Food were happily consumed with the company of my new found blogger friends :) This happens to be my first event with and it was such an overwhelming experience for a first timer like me... Good thing I didn't pass on the chance to be part of this. (more invites, pls? hehe). 

After meal, we then proceeded with the program proper. The first batch of bloggers are Music Bloggers (for which I'm part of) then immediately followed by the Movie Bloggers and last but not the least, the Gadget Bloggers. 
This event was led by the Terrific Trio: (from left to right) Sir Jeman of, Ms Choi & Sir David of AstroVision.
