My 15 Best Takeaways from Magnolia Summer Bloggers Party

One big blast!

That's what me and my blogger friends have had during the recently concluded Magnolia Summer Bloggers Party held at the Executive Dining Room at the San Miguel Corporate Building last April 1, 2011. Before I start with my Top 15 Best Takeaways I'd like to thank everyone behind this cool event especially Magnolia Ice Cream Corporate Team! 

Here we go!

We were welcomed by the warm and happy smiles of the Magnolia staff members as they ushered us to our seats. And that big cooler behind them? Literally gave me some chills. I am seeing an unlimited ice cream treat for all in just a short a while. Weee!

Upon taking our seats, we were greeted by this beautiful emcee who welcomed us to the event. Her name is Rizza Diaz, one of the Courtside Reporters at PBA D League.

I didn't remember myself seeing the last season of Pilipinas Got Talent but I will definitely not forget the awesome performance of PGT's Velasco Brothers who literally drove us wild that night with their amazing stunts and moves as if San Miguel's Executive Dining Room's floor is their safe bed. Awesome!

Of course, the night won't be as memorable without meeting the people who share the same passion as mine for blogging. It's nice to know that we came from very diverse industries but it is the passion for blogging that brought us together. Kudos Pinoy Bloggers!

It was dinner time and the Magnolia Team won't let us go home hungry. I enjoyed the pasta and the chicken drumstick a lot! There's also lechon but I only got myself a small serving. Haha! Everyone was happy!

But of course, Unlimited Food more often than not comes with Unlimited Drinks! That night there was an overflow of Magnolia beverages and no one went home thirsty. I got my first taste that night of Magnolia Lifedrink Papaya with Glutathione. Perfect for summer folks who's not so much into tanning. Haha!

Unlimited Food. Unlimited Drinks. Well uhm how we guys not expect to have unlimited desserts! Yes indeed! Magnolia got us all crazy with their Unlimited Ice Cream surprise that night for us bloggers. I got my favorite Orange Popsies. And in this photo is the mommy blogger Ms. Janese Binaobao-Halabaso on her award-winning summer attire.

Did you know that Magnolia's Flavor of the Month started on the year 1954? And did you know that the Chico fruit (the brown fruit abundant in South Luzon especially during Christmas) became one of the Flavors of the Month? Wow!

Oooh! These Magnolia Girls are unforgettable. Sun-kissed skin so hot melted our popsicle. Hahaha! (Excuse the pun.)

We really enjoyed this Ice Cream Eating Contest with Blindfolds. Haha! We watched the contestants grope in the dark while carefully feeding their partners with ice cream. Imagine the creams on their faces and necks after the contest! Haha! Good thing everyone is game. Super fun!

Yours truly (rightmost holding beach ball) was hailed one of the Summer Dudes that night! Awesome! My style hunting a few days before the event worked! Hahaha!

Outside the room is a team of bracelet designers who shall be asking for your name and then design the bracelet with the color of your choice with your name on it. Cool huh?

Near the bracelets area is the Photo Booth. Lucky to have some shots with the Magnolia Girls!

And then down to our last. That night Magnolia brought the excitement to the highest level as they let us taste and see for the first time their never-been-sold-yet ice cream creation!


Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Magnolia Ice Cream and for this wonderful event!
