United Bloggers Philippines Holds Thanksgiving Party

The year 2017 was remarkable for me. It was the year I started to join groups in blogging which paved the way for me to meet new friends and be introduced to local brands in the community. It opened doors of opportunity for me and likewise deepened my perspective about this passion through exposure to several projects. To celebrate this milestone, I joined the annual Thanksgiving Party of United Bloggers Philippines last January 7, 2018, together with fellow bloggers.

A Gatsby Afternoon

The men donned their debonaire suits, while the women were clad in their sophisticated dresses — to conform to the Great Gatsby theme. This year’s theme complemented the black and white motif of Cafe Romulo and its classy furnishings. Almost everyone dressed well to bag the coveted title of Male and Female Best Dressed, but Maiko Dungo and Ann Purificacion stood out amongst the crowd.

Personally, I’ve tried the Lola Deling’s Atchara and Adae’s Kitchen Krispy Garlik. I’ll be creating another blog post to review these products, but as a summary, they are the ones I deem worthy of bringing to every household.

The Great Food and Service at Romulo

Kudos to the great service and food at Romulo Cafe! Their guest service was commendable and we were treated VIPs as we dine. I loved the Filipino food that they served: something common on the table but surely excellent in taste. I particularly loved their Sinigang. The tamarind soup was made out of fresh ingredients, not artificial ones. I will bring my family here next time when we have special occasions.

Personal Takeaways

I really had a good time. As a newbie, I observed, but I also mingled and enjoyed the experience. More than the freebies and incentives, it’s the new relationships you discover that make it all worth it. It’s the realization of your social responsibility as a blogger, that you are not writing alone for yourself — but to connect and to make an impact to the society. These values are cultivated by United Bloggers of the Philippines where we are all united for a purpose.
