the blog parteeh sucked!!

28 01 2007

it sucked!! it sucked!! Abe sucked!! Gail sucked!! Jayvee sucked!! all the rest of the committee sucked!!


…and that was because i didn’t get to win either the iPod Video 5.5 Gen 30GB or the JBL Creature II 3-piece speaker system… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

but aside from that “not winning” whine, this is the only thing i can say about the Blog Parteeh! ’07 that was held today…


!!!! :p

i had a blast, apples had a blast… everyone had the time of their lives!!

i was able to renew friendships with former officemate Janet and fellow Linux advocate Migs, and at the same time, have a new network of friends… new friends [and blogrolls] like Jozzua and AJ who apples and i shared a table with… wacky Piere and yosi-pal Dotep, and many others!!

apples have a new circle of women friends in camera-shy Shari, tall but beautiful Liz, silent Joni, and petite Mae

of course, who can forget that obnoxious loud person latecomer boisterous Ganns and his very close [really close] pal, self-mutilating wannabe Benj??

i finally got to meet [again] pro-photographers Elber [who, last i read, was trapped with a dozen people inside the elevator at the venue] and Markku… i hope we get to plan the shoot one of these days… *hint* *hint*

and so on, and so on, and so on… there are a lot of people who attended the parteeh, that it would take me the better part of the early morning, as well as majority of the afternoon, to list them all down… so, i hope you guys understand… ๐Ÿ˜€

imgp3093.jpg anyway, apples and i got so many goodies from the party that it almost [almost] made up for not winning either the iPod or the speakers… almost… we have a Google tshit, Star Wars DVD bozed set from Globe, USB fans from eYellowpages, mug and food from GMA New Media, magazines from hinge inquirer, books from Bo Sanchez, and a box of Krispy Kreme‘s… and last of all, the party venue provided by Vince of Feedtext, Inc was simply beautiful… thanks all!!

thanks, Abe, and thanks to all the crazy people who partied worked hard just to give us this once-in-a-lifetime event by bloggers for bloggers… it was awesome!!

Blag Parteeh! ’07 Part 2, anyone?? ๐Ÿ˜€

[pictures available here… if you wanna get a copy, please email me at chris AT haravata DOT com and ill send you a copy… just make sure you give me full credit, ok?? ;)]

Ciao, sweetie… 8)

Hey, BlogParteeh Lucky Table seatmate! Joni and I are inviting you to a KKBEB (Kanya-Kanyang Bayad Eyeball) this Feb 2, Friday, 1130AM at Chef D’Angelo Greenbelt (near Mercury Drug).

Bakit Chef? Dahil #1, the price is great for its value (sampler 1 nila, P110 lang, inclusive of large chicken, pasta, and pizza). #2, no way kakasya ang PHP500 Bubba Gump GC ko sa inyong lahat! 1130AM ang proposed time dahil pag 12NN yan, puno na ang Chef D’Angelo.

If you have other venues in Makati in mind, please share before Thursday. O, ano, BlogParteeh Lucky Table? Game KNB?

[…] Chris says the blog parteeh sucked, but nobody believes him. Then again, with a mug like this, I don’t think anybody would argue with him either. The thing is, Chris despite this pic, Chris isn’t such a dark figure. He isn’t smiling here because… well… I’m not sure why, but he was pretty happy when he won the iPod. […]

[…] And then there AJ, the lucky son of a gun, who won the much coveted video ipod. Congratulations. There has been and there will still be several posts about the Blog Parteeh for several days. I have not yet read them all here are a few that I read Jester-In-Exile’s chronicle of the event complete with pictures. Then there are tons of photographs and commentary courtesy of Chris Harvata, to see the photos look for the link in his post. Then there is the elevator incident narrated by Elber, pro-photographer and nice guy (Gave some tips on how to shoot. Imagine an elevator with bloggers packed tighter than a school of fishes in a sardine can or commuters riding the MRT at rush hour on pay-day Friday, refusing to open. Complicating the matter is an uncooperative emergency button. Fortunately, the passengers were saved by another blogger on the 6th floor who was just about to go down. […]

Are you trying to take us head-on in the sarcasm department, Chris? :s Just because I couldn’t place you a second time?

You and your wife were positively lovely. I hope we get to meet again soon. Meanwhile, I’m giving you some permanent link love.

Well, I do hope y’all enjoy your Google tshit. ๐Ÿ˜‰
