Taste Asia Part II, Simply Fabulous

More than 400 bloggers and blogger-friends met up and partied once again at Taste Asia located at the Mall of Asia. The event was made possible through the generosity of SM Hypermarket. Many, many, many heartfelt thanks to Mr. Herbert Sy, president, and Mr. Robert Kwee, executive vice-president of SM Hypermarket (plus Ms. Josie Gan, Ms. Beth Funelas and all the tireless, friendly and great staff of SM Hypermarket, bilib po ako sa bottomless cheer ninyo!). They have really been supportive and generous to us bloggers. Great thanks as well to the other sponsors (Coca-cola, San Miguel, Colgate, Cliquebooth to name a few).
