Proud Probinsyana at SMX

Tourism advocate from Bicol invited to speak at SMX for DIM Summit 2014
It’s a dream come true for a “probinsyana” like Apple Allison!

I am so much hyped by this news I got from one of the people I look up to, Ms. Apple! I met her for the first time at one of the Havaianas' events I attended as an intern and also a blogger. I was immediately drawn to her bright personality, and I still got more of those when I get to know her further at more blogging events, especially at the Date in Daet event, a tourism advocacy she spearheaded to introduce what my hometown has to offer. Talking to her is not just lots fun but also educational, given her wide stretch of knowledge and experiences in life, travel, culture and a lot more things that a learning-enthusiast like me would get inspired of, especially that she's a marketer too! She's totally an inspiration for me and honestly, I'm secretly wanting her to be my mentor! Hihi. She does a lot of things more than you know of, and it's just so inspiring to know that even a probinsyana can do and accomplish lots of big things. That's why I know attending and hearing what she has to say in this upcoming marketing summit would be so much worth it!

Apple Allison Perez, digital marketing advocate and founder of Sole Searching Soul will speak at the upcoming 3rd Digital Influencers Marketing Summit Manila at SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia on September 13, 2014.

The #DIMSummit aims to empower entrepreneurs, marketers, and advertisers with insights on working with influencers and brand advocates. It is an ideal conference for current and aspiring influencers, thought leaders as well as recognized brand advocates. Highlight of the event includes the keynote of Mr. Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet about expanding Digital Influence outside of the Philippines. This is very relevant with the forthcoming ASEAN 2015 integration.


Osaka Japan April 2014 (Part 2)

If you haven't read my first post about my trip to Japan last April, CLICK HERE! ^_^

So yes, here's your kid-at-heart blogger enjoying pigeons at the Izumisano Station! :3 Can you guess where we're going this time?

On our second day, we spent our whole day at Namba! It's the center of the Minami or south of Osaka that is famous for shopping and entertainment! To be exact, we went to Dōtonbori.

One of Dōtonbori's landmarks is this six and a half meter long crab called Kani Doraku Crab. It was so entertaining as you can see it move its legs and eyestalks!

And of course, Glico Man! The 1935 symbol of the Glico Candy. Manufacturer of your favorite Pocky and Pretz snacks! It's so famous that it has become a-must-photo-background if you'll be going to Namba! But yea~ blame my Olympus camera with a 40mm-150mm lens that didn't allow me to do that! And that's also why Glico Man's photo is only half body! Hihi

But look at me (looking stupid) while I show you a 360 degrees view on the Dōtonboribashi bridge with Glico Man! 

Originally, our plan was to experience the boat tour/ride at the Dōtonbori Canal. But unfortunately, no boat was available that time (or we just don't know where to catch it. hihi)

So, proceed to plan no. 2... SHOPPING~! ^_^ The Dōtonbori bridge connects to Shinsaibashi-suji and Ebisubashi-suji shopping districts. Clothes and shoes aren't really the cheapest things in Japan, but I'm glad its cheaper here in Dōtonbori compare to shops in Tokyo! If I'm not mistaken, added tax in Osaka is lower than Tokyo's too. So the items that you'll buy here would really be cheaper than in Tokyo.

I've gone crazy with spring shopping items! I've been really eyeing on this daisy and pastel floral print platforms, but it costs almost one lapad (¥10,000)! A month later, I ordered a much cheaper one online because I couldn't resist just seeing it! Haha

Here's a photo of some stylish Japanese girls walking around the area too. Style snapping! Well, they'd look pretty normal around Japan as others would wear a looot crazier outfits than this!

And here's my favorite snapshot on our second day. Looks like there's going to be a Bike Showdown of all ages! Hahaha

Since I took only few photos on our second day, I've decided to include our third day on this post too! ^_^

On our third day, our plan was to visit the Ōsaka-jō or Osaka Castle. Above are photos of where we walked in from the station to the Ōsaka-jō.

We ran into this couple (I think they're a couple) playing catch on a baseball field near the Ōsaka-jō. I felt like I was watching a telenovela! Of course, I imagined it in slow-mo and with a feel-good background music! Hihi

And here's the Osaka Castle! I don't know what my travel companions had decided, but we didn't go to come near it anymore. Seeing it was enough. lol maybe they've gone too tired from walking because we got lost too. And there's a fee on getting around the Osaka Castle too, but I've heard that you can never enter it tho.

Instead, we just enjoyed the Sakura Park beside the Okawa river. It was really windy that day so you can see falling sakura petals in this photo! Swear it was magical like what you see in anime's theme song MVs! Haha

And a very touristy photo here!

And that's it about our day 2 and 3 in Osaka! Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed writing this. Come back for more! ;)

P.S. No outfit post this week 'cause I dumbly forgot to save the photos to my macbook before going out of town! Next week, I promise!
