  • FREE SLOTS. I still have three more free slots. Please share to your blogging friends how can they join us in this activity. You may send them this short link:
  • CONFIRM. To confirm your attendance, send me a PM via Facebook with your mobile number and pre-qualifying entry with complete mandatory elements (they change regularly). Catch me at
  • REMINDERS.Read carefully the event details and important reminders below.

  • 1:00pm - 1:15pm - Meet-up at Starbucks Intramuros. As a challenge, I won't be answering any inquiries on how to get to Starbucks Intramuros. Also, punctuality for the meet-up shall be rewarded with a free beverage coupon by Starbucks, where will we be staying for an hour. And lastly, choosing of tour guides is on a first come first serve basis. If you are eyeing a slot for a particular tour guide, do your best to be on time. 
  • 1:00pm - 1:40pm - Caffeine fix at Starbucks Intramuros. Starbucks Intramuros is one of the most unique Starbucks stalls in the whole Philippines. You will know why. I'm sure you will want to hang out inside it and get some caffeine into your system while taking some pictures before the tour. There are just some rules on picture-taking that we need to observe while inside the coffee shop. These things shall be relayed to all of you during the event.
  • 1:40pm - 2:00pm - Tranvia transfer to the venue. No blogger should miss this exciting experience. But I'm afraid those who won't be able to make on or before 1:40pm shall have to walk or ride a pedicab to the venue. Ask the Starbucks folks where did we go. (Keyword: Club Intramuros)
  • 2:00pm - 3:00pm - Snacks while meeting. Some special reminders before the tour while munching some snacks in a very exclusive place within Intramuros. (Keyword: Mulligan)
  • 3:00pm - 6:00pm - Walking tour. All I can say is that I am very much excited about this part.
  • 6:00pm - 7:00pm - Parting of ways. Before we part ways, there shall be some short reminders and quick survey form to be accomplished. Afterwards, see you on the next Intramuros Bloggers Challenge!
  1. INTRAMUROS. Research about Intramuros as early as now to get a teaser of what you will have before the walking tour. 
  2. TOUR GUIDES. Research about the tour guides. This will help you a lot in getting ideas on how to maximize your tour on Sunday. We got Celdran Tours, Mabuhay Guides and Castillan Tours.
  3. UPDATE. Update the mandatory element from your pre-qualifying entry regularly to avoid being disqualified. The mandatory element can be found at the bottom of this post.
  4. BE COMFORTABLE. You will be in a walking tour. Wear the most comfortable clothes that you have. And as much as possible avoid bringing heavy stuffs.

  7. AVOID BACKING OUT. Avoid backing out a couple of hours before the event. Give me at least 12 hours to search for someone to take your place.
