Last Friday night was a total blast, Bloggers communed again to celebrate Oktoberfest with overflowing food and beer at Taste Asia. I arrived at exactly 7pm and the area was still clear. After registering, the organizers provided us a raffle coupon, SMB claim stub and name tags. As usual, Shari and Robby (early birds) were already there while other bloggers were just arriving.
After few minutes, my companions arrived and the crowd quickly started to get bigger and bigger -all waiting for the party to start. While the Plurkers were busy in the wifi area, I accompanied Shellaise, Don and Lara, while I drank San Miguel Oktoberfest Beer, they feasted.
The party officially started at around 9:30 with a drinking contest which was won by who else? Poyt of Tanggera.com. After the exhilarating beer drinking contest, Moonstar 88 performed on the stage playing their list of hits which includes Torete.
After Moonstar 88’s super mini concert everyone waited for the raffle draw which officially concludes the Bloggers night event. Shellaise and Mica each won a Creative Zen 1 Gig MP3 player while Kel won a Mike Abunto like Bluetooth headset.
I thought that was the end of it, I grabbed another pale pilsen when suddenly everyone’s eye was on me. I then heard Kel calling and chanting my name, Arpee then told me that I won a Motorola phone. Happy and Tipsy, I immediately ran towards the stage to claim my phone, the co-host noticed that my name tag was wrong, she was amused that it read Nina. Oh well, Blame it on Plurkers who started it all, swapping their name tags with friends… beer cant kill the virus haha. Thanks to Taste Asia for the Pig-out and San Miguel Brewery for drowning us with beer and of course to my brand new Motorola Phone (*insert Banana Dance here)
