Last month, Cebu Fashion Bloggers (CFB) gathered to celebrate our nine years in the blogging industry. It was hosted by none other than the only seven star resort in Cebu, Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa. It makes me so excited to share about what went down during that lovely evening. Just the thought of it makes me sooo excited all over again, lol! I’m sure the food and the magnificent setup will give you a major envy, so scroll away =)
Kudos to the amazing team of Shangri-La’s Mactan starting with their very accommodating General Manager, René D. Egle, Executive Chef Roshan Fernando for the sumptuous clam bake dinner, Banquet Manager Neldon Rivera for the very instagrammable setup and Ms. Cassandra Cuevas, Ms. Jacque Bulawan, Ms. Feirlyn Decasa and the team. Special thanks by the way to Ching and Ronah from CFB for making this event possible.
My very stylish blogging family never failed to live up to the amazing venue with coordinated earth tone ensembles, yes, that includes meeee!
So what went down during that night? We had a very steamy game, I was sweating for being the extra steamy loser, haha! We had the epic charade moves and the CFB Bingo where everyone spilled the beans about their blogging “behind the scenes” experiences. We also had the paparazzi challenge and I couldn’t be more happy that Marco got my name because my photo was amaaazing! My deepest regrets to Kat for not being the paparazzi of your dreams, haha!
