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.

Sulit

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!

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.

Deal

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!

    Representing symbiosis of painted furniture and French styling,
    the Chantilly range is also comprehensive. Local
    wood was used in creating the furnishings as provincial pieces are typically made of oak, walnut,
    fruit tree wood and beech. As you may be aware, the French regularly enjoy
    a glass of wine, especially at meal times.

    I also like that they are wrapped individually so I may open the
    package and take out what I need without worrying about re-wrapping the rest to prevent freezer
    burn. One big consideration is where you are going to
    store your boat and likely this will depend greatly on your budget.

    The wedding day is always one of the most important days and while the bride glows, she makes sure
    that she looks her best so that her groom can make a
    memory of how beautiful she looked on the day they started their married life together for the rest of their lives.
    A kiss shared with her brother the night she won an Academy Award fueled speculations of an incestuous relationship,
    which she refused vehemently. What kind of dresses look good for both creating an elegant appearance and for still looking right
    as club wear.
