FAME Presents Holiday Delight: A Year-End Bloggers' Party at The Hotel at Green Sun

Wazzup Pilipinas!

To give thanks and their sincerest gratitude and appreciation to the bloggers who have helped Friendly Alliances and Media Expressions (FAME), Inc. FAME is a subsidiary of Trianoin International Group of Companies owned by cardiologist Dr. Rafael Castillo, with the advocacy of spreading the word on health medicine through its magazines.  It later expanded when it ventured into commercial publications and promoting both Philippine and International tourism.

The company organized a year-end thanksgiving party entitled "Holiday Delight: A Year-End Bloggers Party" last December 17 at Green Sun, one of the newest events venue in Makati. It is a “New Arts” Center that caters to the fresh works and performances of young Filipino creatives in the field of arts, design, music, and culinary.

The venue is located at 2285 Chino Roces Avenue Extension in Makati city. Just a very short ride from the Magallanes MRT station. You can even walk from the MRT station if the weather is fine.

The event, themed as a White Christmas Party, capped off FAME's social media programs this year and gathered various bloggers from different industries for a cocktail dinner and socialization party amongst several consumer brands and stakeholders like booths from Goldilocks Bakeshop and Foodshop, Australian Harvest Oats, Trianon, LRI Therapharma and Tupperware.


Also featured at the event were Kinder Zoo- Adventure Jungle, Elabram Systems, Pascual Consumer Health Corporation, MyPhone, Grab Taxi, Walter Bread, Uncle Tetsu, Victoria Court, and Manila Ocean Park, all of whom provided some raffle prizes.

Special thanks goes to the media partners of the event namely Radyo Uno (DZME 1530 AM, Health & Lifestyle, Zen Health, Travel Plus, DiabetEASE magazines, and Vital Signs newspaper.

Of course, your friendly neighborhood Pambansang Blogger ng Pilipinas was there to enjoy the night with friends and an opportunity to meet new acquaintances.

Chef Nancy Lumen, sponsored by Tupperware, did a short demo involving Tiramisu preparation. It' the first time I knew Tiramisu means "Pick me Up" - a power of coffee to stimulate our senses.

We got to taste the Tiramisu concoction they put in the small Tupperware containers.

Almost everyone went home with several product samples from the participating companies, including raffle prizes for many lucky bloggers. I personally won three boxes of Orlistat (Reducin) from ATC Healthcare (It seems somebody up there wants me to reduce my fat. Lol), and a special prize from Tupperware when I made it to the first 15 bloggers to post on Instagram featuring a selfie with their product display (after also following their Instagram and Facebook page).

The evening ended with a short tour from the venue partner of the event, Green Sun, whose people took us around The Hotel at Green Sun. You have to check out the place as it proudly boasts of its high-tech video projection systems.

They have special function rooms like the Axon (which I thought was aaready the biggest at the place with 9 video projection systems almost surrounding your event), SOMA (serving primarily for fashion events), Atrium (for smaller events like our party) and The Eye, very spacious 1,000 square meter venue armed with a remarkable professional light and sound system plus a 360 degree projection system. The Eye is ideal for big events that are highlighted by the advance state-of-the art technologies.

We also got to roam around the SOMA Stores, the fashion, design and retail component of SOMA which is both an incubation space for burgeoning brands (startups) and a creative showcase for renowned labels in the industry.

Of course, we went to some of the rooms of The Hotel at Green Sun which is said to be owned by the same man who owns MyPhone mobile phones.

Thank you FAME for the thanksgiving party, congratulations for another productive year in the business, and more power to you on the succeeding years to come.
