I don't blog about all the events that I go to. I go to blogger events to discover things that would fit my blog.
Sometimes, I end up not finding anything interesting enough to blog, or the most interesting--or urgent--for me to blog is something else, so the event does not make it.
|Orchard Road upset my tummy, but then it was just me.|
Why did I go to Orchard Road in the first place? Because I liked the food when I went there a couple of times. In fact, I suggested it to Dexter Matilla and his friend after another blogger event.
The PR handling the event, Charlie Agatep Associates, which had wanted to hire me a hundred years ago, asked me if I would blog about a National Geographic food show. I said I would if I like the show.
The most unbloggable event that I had been to recently was MedChef's. Since then, I have decided that I will only attend blogger events in the mall. I had stupidly thought that the restaurant was inside the ABS-CBN resto complex. Read: parking.
I ended up parking in a no-parking zone with the assurance of a watch-your-car-guy that it was ok to park there.
I have just about the same thoughts as a blogger who commented that Ceres doesn't go with cakes. I saw some yummy-looking, more ornate cakes downstairs served to other guests, while we bloggers huddled upstairs to eat the more ordinary cakes. I don't get it. Why bother inviting bloggers--or anyone--at all if you're going to serve us un-praiseable cakes? To me, the message is that bloggers are easy to please. It's ok to give them--us--the so-so stuff.
