A WAHMmy's Blogapalooza 2013 Experience

Back in 2011, when the Blogapalooza was launched, I felt I was still a baby at blogging and didn't had the courage to join. 2 years past, I felt I could get in the list and I did!

Blogapalooza 2013 was held on November 16, 2013 at SMX Convention Center in SM Aura. The event ran from 11am-9pm. It was a fully booked Saturday for me so I had to carefully plan my schedule--- PTA in McKenzie's school at 930 - 1030 am (Imus, Cavite), Blogapalooza (SM Aura) then a nephew's birthday party at 5pm (ParaƱaque).

At 11am we were on our way to Blogapalooza 2013. We arrived in SM Aura a few minutes before 1 and we were starving so I had lunch with my husband and daughter at the SM Aura's food court. After eating, they dropped me off at the venue and went on their way to check out SM Aura since it was our first time there.

It was a wonderful experience for me as I was able to meet businesses who were more than willing and enthusiastic to talk to me about their products or services.

If I were a business owner, this is a great venue to have my business advertised on the Top 500 Blogs in the country and should make it a point to showcase it properly. There were some who really sent their best people to talk to bloggers about it. Some simply sent people to do flyering and freebie distribution though.

Kudos to those businesses who put up their booths creatively and even had interactive games for the bloggers.

Now, let me share with you the experience using the photos I took.

Not too many photos of the event as I had my hands full with all these tokens and info materials.

Art, Music or Dance School Search for McKenzie: Lea De Castro Music Studio & Artist Center

McKenzie turned 2 last Monday, August 20, 2012.

She is displaying extreme interest to singing, dancing and art (color-ing! she would always say). This made us decide to check out the available music, art or dance schools in our area.

Last Sunday, we dropped by Lea De Castro Music Studio and Artist Center Inc in Binakayan, Kawit, Cavite. It is approximately 15 minutes away from our place.

Unfortunately, music lessons are offered only to kids 6yo and older.

They offer Baby Ballet for 3-5 year old kids. The person at the front desk told me they could accept kids younger than 3yo provided she is ready to be left alone in the studio with the dance teacher and the other kids.The Dance Studio is at the 2nd floor and parents can only wait outside. Hmmmnnn, I am not very sure if McKenzie can handle that but she does stay in the middle seats during birthday parties, along with other kids.

I was told we could bring her over to sit in one time for 30 minutes. The dance teacher would provide an ev…
