SM City Bacolod Media Night

Even when I began blogging more seriously, I never quite realized the reach and power of social media.  Although we started getting some invitations to events sponsored by Globe, Google and Multiply, it was only when several businesses started knocking that I saw the importance of social media in influencing opinions and outcomes in almost everything it touches. So that when SM City Bacolod invited the officers of the Negrense Blogging Society, Inc. to attend it's Media Night last January 5, 2013, we decided to attend.  It was fun to be part of the "media" even though I am not what is considered a "real" media practitioner.  But I'd like to believe that as bloggers, we too are writers and also, what is more commonly known, citizen journalists.  Our friends from were there (of which I too am a member but have not been very active) and personalities from the different radio and TV stations in the province. We were entertained by the talented, lusty, hilarious, pretty and amiable Ms. Giselle Sanchez who told us that she too, blogs :)  And it was a surprise to know that Ms. G can sing, good enough for a broadway musical!

And of course, don't forget that there's the new four-storey building of SM City Bacolod which will open in March 2013.  This will house it's department store in it's entirety! Shopping galore!  And that is not all, because the second phase of it's mall expansion and convention center (?) will start this January or early February.  All these within 5 years from when SM Prime Holdings started their investment in Bacolod!   

So thank you SM City Bacolod Mall Manager George Jardiolin, Marketing Head Nep Grandea, and indefatigable PR Director May Castro, for making the Negros bloggers one of your partners in progress.


  1. omg! reaading this makes me feel excited also! goodluck to your shopping galore dear! xx

  2. Social Media is really powerful and I'm sure you can really contribute in promotion of events/updates in SM City Bacolod and Bacolod too.

  3. Honestly, I am a newbie to hearing and reading stuff like this. But I must agree, social media has become an integral part of business industry. Hope, one day, maka-attend din ako ng mga events like this one.

  4. It feels to be given due respect as bloggers since most bloggers do honest work.

  5. four story building? wow, our SM Mall in San Pablo City is only two story... it's kinda small for a Mall but that one is twice the size of the one in our city...

  6. SM has really made its way and became a big thing in the Philippines. Its almost everywhere.

  7. You are lucky to be invited to that blogger event, It seems the event was lively and interesting.

  8. Giselle Sanchez is one fine celebrity with lots of talents. She graduated with flying colors too. Kudos to SM City Bacolod for such event.
