Thanks Goldilocks and Nuffnang!

Last Friday, August 7th, my husband and I went to the Goldilocks You're the 1 Awarding Ceremony. I was excited to go and was a little bit nervous and apprehensive as well. It was my first blogging event and for the first time I was about to see bloggers in the flesh, (hahaha) up close and personal. I know most of them know each other already and I was scared to be left out. And also, I've never been to Bonifacio High Street. I had only been in Bonifacio Global City once when I organized a Japanese IT mission back in 1999 and Bonifacio Global City was still in its very early stage of development, where I only got to see the blueprint and the model of the city.

I took my husband with me for morale support as I threaded into the unknown. It was unexpectedly easy to get to Bonifacio High Street from our place. We were there just in time, a little early, in fact. At first I was nervous, but everyone was so nice and accommodating, especially the Nuffnang and Goldilocks staff, that I felt at home in no time. Of course, it helped that my husband was with me.

As we waited for the program to start, we were given a Goldilocks bag of goodies (with bags of mamon and Summit Media Magazines). The real treat came when we were given cakes to decorate for the Decorate your own cake contest. Oh what bliss! I just wished that Basti was with us at that time. He would have totally enjoyed decorating his own cake. Hubby enjoyed his Decorate your own cake experience tremendously!

I really had a good time that night.

We were treated to a Goldilocks dinner buffet! We had our pictures taken too! And I had my first glimpse of Dingdong Dantes and Judah Paolo. And the to top it all, I finally met, in person, one blogger I've been following for so long, Ms. Noemi Lardizabal-Dado, who happens to be the grand prize winner.

I did not win anything, not even a consolation prize. I was hoping, but not expecting, that I'll get to take home something (hahaha) . (Of course, everyone hopes to win!). But I've been reading most of the entries and they were really good. Kudos to all the winners!

But as my hubby said, the cakes themselves, the good time and the experience itself are prizes enough. We really had a good time, and also I get to spend quality time with hubby. Having been there, he kinda understood more the blogger side of me, because he got to see other people who are like me.

We brought home the cakes. The kids were still awake when we got home and were ecstatic over their cakes. They added more decors on the cake and afterwards we had our midnight snacks.

Thank you Nuffnang and Goldilocks for a truly wonderful experience!
