I know not much of online selling and buying until a friend introduced me to it a few years back. AyosDito.ph is one of the preferred online classified ads for Filipinos and by Filipinos. It’s recently been awarded as the No.1 Classified Ads website by Digital Filipino Search Profile Index. And they had organized its first Ayos Dito iBall, a blogger event wherein I’ve been lucky to be invited.
The said event transpired in Cowo Asia, the first of its kind workspace and virtual office in the country that allows individuals to co-work (hence, the name) with other entrepreneurs, freelancers, designers and professionals in a creative environment. COWO is the venue where business owners and freelancers can work, have access to the methods of communication and Internet for an affordable annual membership fee.

Bloggers had a lot of fun with the unique food that was prepared such as Tempura Quail eggs, Sisig Tacos, Tuyo pasta, Corned beef pandesal, not to mention Sebastian’s ice cream which was truly a hit among bloggers that night with flavors like Mangga’t Suman, Sapin-Sapin and Champorado ice creams!

There was also unlimited free booze that night—from colorful candy flavored to fruity concoctions and Martinis to whatnot. Name it and they probably had it! I tried one called Buco Lychee Martini, which my blogger friend Ate Milette Sison of http://www.luckyfinds-shareapic.blogspotcom recommended. However, since I am not really a drinker myself, I just took a few sips, although I had to admit, the booze tasted good.

It was indeed a fun filled evening to remember with games, entertainment and raffle prizes including a Fuji Polaroid camera, Samsung Galaxy Y and Apple I-Pad 3!

As if those wonderful stuff wasn’t enough, the gorgeous Ms. Solenn Heusaff, upcoming actor John Medina and funny DJ from Magic 89.9 DJ Tony Toni also graced the said event.
|It's so hard to get near this goddess, with so many blogger men going on after her.|
