“SM believes that no customer should be left behind.”
-Mr. Abraham Imas
Last Friday, July 31st, I attended SM City Iloilo’s Free WiFi Launch with the Iloilo Bloggers and some of my blogger and VA friends. It was not as great as we expected because for one it didn’t start on time but still we managed to have fun and fulfill our duties as bloggers. We took photos and now I am writing my blog post. I met more members of the Iloilo Bloggers (it was really nice to finally meet Efren, Vincent Juanga of Inicenti, Alvin of Oh My Iloilo and Vincent of ExploreAklan!) and I also saw some popular Pinoy billiard players too and an upcoming presidentiable (although he’s not part of the WiFi event). I thought the launch was for bloggers, forumers and IT people only but it actually was not. It was also for the Senior Citizens, the families of the OFWs, people from OWWA, and various IT organizations and students from the different schools here in Iloilo as well. Everyone received freebies from SM and their sponsors. Jonha, Monica and I also won a GC courtesy of Figaro from the raffle . A Lola Techie from the Senior Citizens organization won a Nokia Phone too! Congratulations to her!
I would like to thank SM City Iloilo for inviting the Iloilo Bloggers and of course for the freebies and the free Wifi. A big thank you to all the sponsors; Jollibee (for the free meal), Netopia (for the Click Club membership card and Microsoft Training gift card), Café Celina, Mister Donut, Our Home, Saint Café, Picture City, Bo’s Café, SM Cinema, Text Terminal, Q-Solutions, Figaro and Philcom.

And by the way I have another blog post about the event somewhere on one of my web accounts. And it isn’t as nice as this one.
Because of insistent public demand (as if! LOL) Here’s the link to the not so nice blog post.
