Yes, I really can't believe it when I received an email inviting me to be part of an event overseas. 

At first, I thought it was nothing. that it's just like the usual emails with a good intro but the ending is they'll selling something or introducing a product or an app or the usual line saying "maybe you can share this to your readers" things like that... -you know it.

A Series of Firsts

After a few exchanges of emails, off I go to cover and be part of an event that is set to happen somewhere I have never been before. Then, the excitement kicks in! Allow me to share and highlight my "many firsts" series.

First Event and Travel for 2018
I have been MIA lately in press events, launches, and the likes. 
I wasn't able to attend events during the last stretch of 2017.

I focused all my attention on campaigns, lil stuff at home and most especially, my family.

So I guess this is my reward for being good last year :)

First time flying with (PAL) Philippine Airlines

Told yah, many "firsts"

First time in Thailand

Feeling comfy going to Conrad Bangkok Hotel

Nightlife at Bangkok

My First Time to See a Tuktuk

Staycation at Conrad Bangkok

Do you know what I was thinking the whole time? 
To see PeeMak! commonly known as Mario Maurer, 
Try their Sweet Mangoes, StreetFoodTrip, And Sight-Seeing 

My First Time at Conrad Bangkok

And most important of all is that I have a taste of 
an authentic Thai Milk Tea!

Super grateful that my first out of the country is sooner than I expected, actually I don't have any plans to travel outside PH this 2018, so this is a real treat! I am also feeling super thankful that the Brands, PR, Marketing teams, friends, and other agencies that I've worked with who were still around, supporting and believing in me and also appreciating the value of my work.

And basically the "Super Highlight of All"  

My passport's very first stamps.


I haven't been everywhere, But I'll get there
Follow me on my lil' adventures, making my dreams come true one blog post at a time :)

It was My First Out-of-the-Country Gala Ever

Now, maybe you're asking:
 What is the reason why I was there in Thailand?
What kind of event was it?

The 2 day series of event was about the U.S Pulses Trail -Bangkok, Thailand
The U.S Pulses is now making a sound or should I say sprouting its way in Southeast Asia
