Sulit Clique: A Bloggers Affair

I have been shying away from blogging events these past two months following the death of my husband. I was aware though that at some point I had to put a stop to this self imposed seclusion because one, it isn’t doing me any good and two, my husband would have wanted to see me enjoy life the same way as when he was alive.  Besides, if there is someone who is very supportive of my blogging career, it was my husband.
Anyway, last week I received an email invitation from sulit.com for their first ever Bloggers Affair. Having been a fan of Sulit for years now and having followed their success story, I decided that this invitation was just too good to pass up and so I went.

And well, true to Sulit’s catchy tagline, I say the 1st Sulit Bloggers Affair can be aptly described as Hanap. Usap. Deal too.
Hanap
It was an intimate gathering as only about 2o plus bloggers were present. Ms. Meanne, Sulit’s Marketing Head,  revealed during our small chitchat  that even from the start they wanted it to be  just a small gathering  so bloggers and the people from Sulit will really have that chance of getting to know each other. They personally looked (Hanap) for bloggers who would fit the Sulit Clique. And I had to say this as well, lahat ng hanap mo sa isang super fun bloggers party, Sulit provided—perfect venue, excellent food, good company, exciting games, raffles and giveaways!

Food was delish!

The thing that made this an extra nice event for me is the fact that the people from Sulit really went out of their way to welcome us, from Sulit’s top man himself, Mr. RJ David who table hopped and exchanged pleasantries and stories with the bloggers, to Rachelle, the SEO copywriter who sent out the invitation and called us for confirmation. The young and dynamic Sulit marketing team made it a point to drop by our table to personally introduce themselves, check if we’re comfortable or need anything, and basically to share their own personal journey with Sulit.  The event also gave me a chance to finally meet and chat with some of the bloggers I know only in a virtual level. It was really nice to finally match their faces with their web names.

The night of course ended with us striking a deal to fully support Sulit. Who wouldn’t when you know that theirs is a classic success story worthy of dethroning Michael Zuckerberg’s the Social Network in the box office if put in film. If you haven’t heard the story yet, I will share it to you one of this day, I need a clean note page for that. Like I always say I am sucker for Pinoy success stories, I am a big supporter and advocate of Pinoy brands. To me, Sulit’s success is unparalleled because it has managed to build the brand in such a way that it will still come out unique and truly Pinoy. Hearing the top man himself, RJ David sharing that initially they ventured abroad too but decided to close down the international arm so the company can fully concentrate its efforts in improving and strenthening its local operations made me admire the man and the company tenfolds more. His goal ever since was to make the company flourish in the Philippines and be recognized globally as a Pinoy brand. Sulit does have a clear vision, and I say its 20/20 because as it is climbing up the success ladder it is not loosing sight of its Pinoy identity. So for me, supporting Sulit all the way is a done deal. I am now a proud member of the  Sulit Clique.

I will end this post on a personal note. A week before my husband died he gave my daughter the tablet that he promised her for her graduation in March. When he saw me sulking because that was not part of our plan and budget, he told me “Wag ka magalala this year bibigyan din kita, iPad naman.” Then he died a week after. Who would have thought that among the 20 or so bloggers present in that event I would be the lucky one to win the grand prize that night.  The iPad 2.  Call it luck, chance, fate, whatever but to me its my husband’s way of keeping his promise. If you ask me to describe Sulit’s 1st Bloggers Event, I’ll definitely say it was Sulit na Sulit!

The Best of My 2010 Travels

Travel wise, 2010 has been a great year for me. Chance, fate and opportunity presented me with these travel experiences that I never would have imagine happening, even in my wildest dream,in just a span of a year.
April 16-18, 2010
Palawan was one of my dream places to visit. That is why when our school planned an outing/outreach activity there last summer, I signed up for it right a way. It was everything I imagined it to be and more. I simply love the place–the fantastic beaches, the many wonders of nature that you can see around and the locals living there who are just so passionate and protective about their hometown. I will never forget our island hopping adventure along Honda Bay, a place that can be describe as marine biodiversity at its finest and our visit to the Underground River which left us awestruck by the sheer beauty of the captivating stalagmite and stalactite formations (see my related post here). I was a half-hearted environmental warrior before Palawan, but after the trip, I throw myself wholeheartedly into the fight for a clean and green environment.

Since I was chosen last October as one of the winners of a blog writing contest sponsored by Cebu Pacific, my husband and I also had the opportunity to stay at Badian Island Resort and Spa in Cebu for three glorious days (see my related post here). It was my first time to travel to Cebu, so you can just imagine how thrilled speechless I was especially after seeing the place where my husband and I were to celebrate our 10th year wedding anniversary. Badian Island Resort and Spa is simply paradise. I am a beach freak so I had a great time kayaking, sunbathing, swimming and snorkeling. I particularly like the romantic lunch in Coral Garden arranged by the resort, where we also had the most humbling snorkeling experience. It was my first time to see up close huge, colorful and beautiful corals and starfish swaying in harmony with the other sea creatures. It made me realize how truly blessed we are for having all of these wonderful natural treasures right here in our country. Of course, trip to Cebu will not be complete without doing the extreme Skywalk and Edge Coaster adventure in Crown Regency, which I absolutely love, love, love. It provided the perfect opportunity for me to overcome my fear of heights. Indeed, Cebu is one of the best local places to be, if you are out looking for varied outdoor activities.

I never planned on going back to Singapore too soon after having been there just the previous summer (2009) but because my sister, who is based there for some years now, extended an invitation too good to resist, I found myself in my favorite tiger city once again last May. Just in time for the soft opening of Universal Studios Singapore (see my related post here). Who would have thought that two crazy adults would love Universal Studios! My sister and I were literally giddy the whole time we were there. We were like children on the loose. It was like reliving all of our fondest childhood memories. Since I stayed there for almost two weeks, I also had the chance to explore the places I didn’t get to visit before such as the Chinese and Indian temples and China Town, the one place I often frequented when I was there. I just loved how it gave me that culture-high and how the place just hustles and bustles. Since I traveled on my own for this particular trip (read: without my husband and kid), I did my own version of Eat, Pray, Love in Singapore. 🙂 It was liberating in away, learning so much about the culture and getting the feel of a foreign place. It left me warmheartedly full.

2010, I was riding high with all these travel experiences that life presented me. It made me realized that once you start travelling, the wanderlust feeling seem to stay. I have a few places in my mind that I would like to visit this year, though I doubt if I will ever get to be that lucky again in the travel department like last year. But the way I see it, you don’t really need luck and chance that much when planning your travels, all you need are a good travel agency and an online classified ads website who can provide you with the best travel deals and leads such as Trajet Tours and Travel and Sulit.com.ph and you will surely be all set and ready to go in no time.:)
As of this writing, I already booked a flight Southeast and is dreaming of Hong Kong. (sigh!)

Sulit.com.ph: At the Forefront of Online Shopping Revolution

Eversince the dawn of cyber age, our life has never been the same again. The world has become smaller, so much so that it can actually fit right inside our computer monitor. Everything can be had in an instant. Valued information and fast track services are now just a click away in the internet. One aspect of our lifestyle that clearly underwent a total make over is shopping. Virtual sites offering hassle free transactions right at the comforts of our own home, at our own convenience, continue to emerge like mushrooms after the rain.
When the caravan of online shopping sites took the market by storm, I readily jumped in and joined the bandwagon. In no time at all, I had perfected the art of hitting the buy icon and filling out those clever order forms. And as if the lure of shopping online wasn’t enough, I also started posting items to sell in some shopping websites. But then, as much as I would like to paint a very nice picture of a successful online selling and shopping experience, I have to admit that in the end the setbacks far outweighed the benefits for me. One thing I learned about online shopping and selling is that the risks of getting used and abused in this kind of business are way too high. I had my share of bogus buyers and low quality items (that are far from the pictures posted online) from different sellers arriving at my doorstep at certain points that eventually, I decided not have anything to do anymore with online selling and buying.
A couple of months back though, my friends and relatives introduced me to Sulit.com, where they have already started selling and advertising their businesses. I have to admit that my “bitter” experiences in other online sites offering the same kind of services has made me reluctant to enter the wonderful world of Sulit.com at the onset. I was determined to observe the movements and learn more about the site first before I let myself be lured again. As luck would have it, I came across people who were more than willing to share their wonderful stories about their successful purchases in Sulit.com of items as small as books to items as big as cars and lots. These people, aside from my family and friends, all attested to the fact that Sulit.com is indeed “sulit na sulit” meaning, no money, time and energy are wasted here, the kind of investments that we really can’t afford to throw away.
I am now sold to the idea of online shopping and selling again, thanks to Sulit.com and to all those great testimonies. In fact I had already started purchasing items aand scouring Sulit for best deals. In the coming months I will also be posting items to sell, hopefully jumpstarting my Sulit career as an online seller. What I learned about Sulit that also helped paved the way for my comeback in this kind of business is this:
It is place that breeds honesty and trust among online sellers and shoppers what with its strict security features and measures that are clearly in place. It provides many great opportunities for people who does not have the adequate means and know how to jumpstart their businesses but has the determination and heart to succeed in their crafts and fields. It encourages people to exercise their freedom of choice and buying power to the limit, therefore pushing sellers to supply only high quality items at the best price possible, resulting in a best deal. It continues to stand out from among the rest for it constantly strive to evolve and improve itself so it can deliver only the best possible service to both its sellers and buyers. And the most importantly, it has the true marks of a Pinoy, always at the forefront of change and giving you the kind of service that is more than, much more than, your money’s worth.
