Big Blog Exchange

"Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day." -Dalai Lama

BLOGGERS’ MEET UP. I have already mentioned about this event on my previous post. For those who don’t know, Big Blog Exchange is an exciting, unique and exclusive project that has never before been explored. It is being run by Hostelling International. Last March 1, 2013, they launched an international contest for bloggers wherein sixteen lucky passionate bloggers will swap lives, blogs, cultures and places simultaneously in real life for ten days! And the lucky winner that went here in the Philippines is Tina from Germany. She is a food blogger from When I received an email from bigblogx to meet her up, I replied yes right away. It was such a great opportunity to meet people who have the same interest as yours.

Together with other bloggers, we went to Where2next Manila Hostel last June 15 to meet and greet her. She is such a nice lady. Very friendly and is always smiling. We had a lil’ chitchat and had our late lunch there. She told us about where she went and what she did on her stay here in the Philippines. She went to see beautiful beaches, historical places and get a taste of Filipino foods in Bacolod, Cebu and here in Manila. It was so nice meeting her. Other than that, I also met few bloggers here in manila which eventually became my friends.
