Taste Asia Blogger Food Fest: a Smashing Success

What else can I say? The title says it all. I think about 200 were present in the Taste Asia Blogger Food Fest - 150+ bloggers plus SM Hypermarket guests.

I also was happy to chat with Herbert Sy, Director of the SM Group of Companies who oversees SMs 33 supermarkets and hypermarkets, and Donald Lim, CEO of Yehey.com.



My favorite photos from Cliquebooth! Thanks so Karl for setting it up for free!



I'd like to thank Mr. Robert Kwee, Executive Vice President and Beth Funelas, Ad & Promo of SM Hypermarket for initiating and making this event a smashing success (and with only 2 weeks preparation time!).

Please don't forget about the SM Hypermarket Blog Writing Contest!

And, of course, to the tireless coordinators who helped in bringing in the bloggers: Sasha Rico Janette Jedi Jay Abe Ely Marc Jayvee Shari Noemi Sexymom Jonas Pierre Jomar and AJ
