The Club and Bloggers Networking Event in Cebu which was held yesterday evening at Teatro Casino at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino was a huge success. The event, which was organized by none other than Ms. Janette Toral, author of the E-Commerce Workshop E-Book and co-author/editor of the Philippine Internet Review: 10 Years of Internet History (1994 - 2004) , and sponsored by the very generous PAGCOR, was attended by members of the Club and the Cebu Bloggers Society, as well as other individuals who share a common interest in blogging and the internet world.

The event started with a dinner. YeaH!!! although me and my friends were late the Food was still great!! awesome and out of this world!!! I got to meet Miss Janet Toral of Digital Filipino Club and one of the organizers of the event. I also saw several noteworthy personals from popular local sites such as istorya and mynimo. It was really cool that all bloggers there were given the chance to introduce themselves and their blogs (Although when I was speaking, I still had some food in my mouth).

It’s a well-attended event by bloggers, web designers, web developers, SEOs, online mavericks, broadcasters, media men, IT folks and other advocates of the digital world. Anyway I brought my friends (They have no idea what blogging is but I am in the works of inviting them into the blogging world). The event was fun and I was stuffed. Mark went crazy over one of the female performers debating with jorich w/ his lady blogger friend, I went crazy on the food, met Atty. Ethelbert B. Ouano, finally got my cbs t-shirt (Thanks to miong and rianov) and my friends were satisfied and had some king can beers, si kevin nka daog ug Php500.00, spoke in front and now janet's book salesman (Php450.00 - blogging from home), si clarence nag photographer mode, winston spoke in front as well and joined the games and won some freebies himself (If i'm not mistaken a pagcor umbrella and cap?), Sir Zigfred brought his Possy of lawyers, bloggers were networking and chit-chatting and many more!!!
