Wazzup Pilipinas Blogcasters Talk About Food Blogging Perks and Issues

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Continuing our e-Blog Mo Na Yan! radio show for the month of August 2014 where we talked about everything related to food blogging, a few selected bloggers and businesses from the food industry were invited to be our special guest last Saturday August 16, 2014. The show airs from 10 to 11 am every Saturday and is in partnership with Wazzup Pilipinas and Vigattin Radio of Radyo Inquirer DZIQ 990 AM.

Bloggers that form the "blogcasters" panel were Krizia Louren Catapang of, Alice Mate of, and Icah Bunganay of

From the business side, we invited Ace Azarranga, Marketing manager of a group of restaurants namely The Old Spaghetti House, Swensen's, Grilla, Shrimp Shack and Potts Point, their newest restaurant in Eastwood that offers organic food. Also our special guest was  Chef Ivan of Brotzeit, a German bar and restaurant located at the ground floor of the EDSA Shangri-La Mall.

Ross Del Rosario, founder of was also there to facilitate the discussion with resident broadcasters Den Macaranas and Arne Bacelo, including Elison Barcelo, CEO of of Vigattin Inc.

After a few introductions, among the topics discussed were some of the current issues surrounding food blogging like overstepping on the boundaries of ethics and discipline by demanding for free food and rewards like GCs, or even cash payments in exchange of blog posts about the restaurant.

Our guests from the food industry were asked if they are in favor of using bottled or instant mixes as part of their ingredients, and were even asked for confirmation if they were also affected by the so-called shortage of chicken. Apparently, they don't have a similar case of #ChickenSad.

Overall, we ended the "blogging on air" with plenty of things learned from each other. Tune in to more interesting discussion as we invite a new set of bloggers and businesses every Saturday to discuss about food blogging for the month of August. Remember, every Saturday from 10 to 11 am at Radyo Inquirer DZIQ 990 AM.

As usual, we ended the e-Blog Mo a Yan! radio show with a great meal at Shakey's Pasong Tamo where blogcasters dine on pizza, spaghetti with garlic bread, and fried chicken. No #ChickenSad here but lots of #eBlogMoNaYan #Vigattin and #WazzupPilipinas
