Own Christmas! A Pre-Holiday Bloggers’ Workshop


We celebrated Christmas as early as November, thanks to Top Pick Advertising!

Last November 25, 2015, Top Pick Advertising had it’s first blogger event dubbed as Own Christmas! A Pre-Holiday Bloggers’ Workshop held at Green Sun Hotel in Makati City. They’ve invited guest speakers to help us ease our Christmas preparations. It was a night full of learnings and of course FUN!

We’ve all struggled with this dilemma: How to wrap gifts in a presentable fashion, rather than just covering them with wrapping paper and secure it with scotch tape. For me, no matter what age your friend or family member may be, a gift with a personal touch is the ultimate way to let them know just how much you care. This workshop was sponsored by Goldilocks and Ms. Tracey of  Artcey Crafts.


Next was a cooking demo from El Real Pasta and Chef Carol. She showed us how to prepare Shrimp with Sundried Tomato Pesto Pasta, basically completely different to how I’m used to cooking pasta sauce. But boy, was I surprised. It was absolutely delicious! They also gave out bags of El Real so we could try it out (I cooked Spaghetti alla Puttanesca the next day, for details click here).


La Filipina introduced it’s products, Bacon Corned Pork and Ham Luncheon Meat. According to it’s website, La Filipina Corned Pork is the only Philippine made Corned Pork in the country. It is made from 100% pure pork, with no extenders and zero transfat. You’ll surely enjoy juicy, tasty corned pork anytime and anywhere with its easy-open cans. I tried it myself, loved it!


My Phone also had a product presentation of their newest model, My35. A durable yet budget-friendly phone. Some of it’s features include: 5-inch HD smartphone running on a 1.3GHz octa core processor from MediaTek with 3GB of RAM and Android Lollipop as the operating system. Each unit of this smartphone also comes with a free MyPhone 8-year commemorative watch.

We also took home goodies from Walter Bread, which include a sample of their sugar free wheat bread, sugar free wheat pandesal and my favorite, mongo bread.
