Never Mix Blogging & Alcohol

Never Mix Blogging & Alcohol

I rarely miss a day blogging but yesterday was an exception. We had to rush to Recto to find a really good trophy/plaque-maker for the blog awards. Gail and her hubby were debating on the doability of the designs we’ve been conceptualizing that morning. Reality sunk in and with the limited time and resources, we settled with an ambitious yet unique look (imagine our surprise when we found out the PWA trophies came from stock designs). Tips on those who want to give away awards — always go for huge and really heavy trophies. Awardees will go nuts and say “pare, hanep, ambigat ng award mo!“.

Late in the evening, my brother and I were debating if I should get him a PSP or an XBox 360 for the hard work he’s been doing overseeing the renovations of our house in the province. He chose the former. Though the XBox 360 was way heavier than the PSP, I guess the “huge & heavy” rule-of-thumb doesn’t work with gadgets.

The rest of the evening and most of the early morning were spent at Markku’s huge, huge mansion drinking and singing the night away. Jayvee pulled some strings and got a guitar, Aileen was busy mixing some drinks (calamansi juice + sprite + GSM Blue) while Marc was itching to go upstairs and grab the Magic Sing from the other guests to do a rendition of I-Axe.


Several pitchers of the aileen apolo concoction were shared, countless numbers of high notes were missed, flawless pictures were shot, a new out-of-town destination was planned, and one super-secret was unveiled. Good thing nobody had their laptops with them or we could have spilt more juicy secrets. So hear this, never mix blogging and alcohol.

Belated Happy Birthday to Markku!

    Belated happy birthday to Markku! Now that alcohol has intoxicated the Pinoy A-bloggers, would more alcohol flow in the next blogger meet-up? ;)

    Sounds like you guys had a good time…

    I’m happy to be part of the Blog Awards… I’m so thrilled with the support, and I’m also happy that you guys have received such great blog entries…

    And Abe, or any committee members, If I win any prizes, I think I’ll donate to a worthy cause, so I hope you can point me in the right direction if that happens..

    And please don’t drink during the awards :) (maybe after…)
