In May 10, I wrote about the Akyat Pinatubo Bloggers Climb for a Cause. It was scheduled tomorrow, but because of typhoon Chedeng, they decided to move its date. From 28 May, it will now take place on 04 June. I totally understood the reason for moving its date, and still, I am very excited for this trip.
The trip now has more supporters: SM, Jollibee, Havaianas, Unilab, Travel Factor, GeiserMaclang, Primer Group of Companies, Sledgers, Solid Hosting, R.O.X., Kiss Tourist Bus, and Blogger Manila.
Media partners are still Nufffnang Philippines, ChurpChurp Philippines, Orange Magazine TV.
Last Wednesday, there was a pre-travel briefing at R.O.X. in Bonifacio Global City. That day, I wasn't feeling 100% because of the heavy rain from the previous day. My sister, who is also part of the trip just went on my behalf.
Being one (or two) of the first 10 participants to register, my sister and I got a pair of Havaianas flip flops each. At the event, sister asked me my choice, and I told her to get me the "typical" looking flip flops, and since there were only two flip flops my size, sister chose the brown one. The other pair (she said) looked like one of my old Havaianas flip flops (see the picture on the upper right part of my blog's header), so she got this one for me. I still haven't used it, as I still have flip flops to wear. :)
The trip has quite a handful of supporters, and since they gave out products, the organizer decided to use these to raffle off. I got to win a thermo-tumbler and a bottle of Swish mouthwash from Unilab and a soap (with coconut shell soapdish) from Body Flavors. We also got to receive 100 GC because the trip fee for bloggers is now 1800. Since we paid 1900 for our slot, this was a good way of giving back the 100.
One funny thing to share, while at the pre-travel briefing, my sister asked me what my blog URL is because she needed to list down my name (so the organizer will know that I already got my "freebies"). Like I said, I wasn't feeling all that good, so I gave her the URL of my food blog (as the recent events I attended were for my food blog). Later I realized I gave her the wrong URL, which is why one blogger asked my sister why my blog is about food. Anyway, I would just like to say that my blog for the Akyat Pinatubo is this one. :)
