Microsoft Discovery Day 2019, CDO Edition

I had the privilege of joining the Microsoft Discovery Day 2019, CDO Edition. This was organized by Microsoft Philippines Inc. and DevCon CDO. 

To be honest, I am just learning the ropes of being techy, if working on Wordpress and such can be called as techy, then I guess I am. My ultimate goal was to learn more about what Microsoft has to offer, even for us newbies in the tech world. 

When I arrived at the venue, the DICT Tech4Ed Center here in CDO, I was nervous. Why? Because I am in a new environment. I don't know most of the people there, as well as the organizers. I was also out of my element. Most of the people who joined this free training were students, and a few professionals, who by the way already know each other or are co-workers in the said field. I thought, well, I just have to grin and bear...grin and bear it. 

When the program started and the speakers started their talks, I immediately felt I belong. The speakers, Mr. Ian de Torres, Developer Marketing Manager, an…

😋😋 An Experience to Remember at the Seda Centrio Hotel 😋😋

April 30 was a great day for me! Want to know why? It was the chance for me to try the sumptuous Dishes of #Misto Restaurant at #SedaCentrio. Literally, when the meals were delivered to our table, our jaws literally dropped because of how delicious they looked.

The first dish we had to try was the Surf and Turf Platter, which was a combination of seafood, chicken and meat. It was of course my favorite because I love Seafood! The baked mussels and the food combination was to die for! At only Php 1,799, it is really budget friendly!  😁

The second dish I tried was the Executive Lunch Set. For only Php 499, you can indulge in a 3-course menu made up of fresh ingredients that combine the most appetizing lunch. This will truly make your day! 😋

For the people who like to take a cool drink early in the afternoon, this Suds and Sides Platter is for you! For Php 1,100 net, you get a platter of Chicharon Bulaklak, Bone Marrow, Sous Vide Beef Tendon, Lechon Kawali and a complimentary six (6) b…

Membership Interview with CDO Bloggers! 😅😍😅😍

Last April 30, 2019, I had the opportunity to be interviewed by #CDOsFriendliestBloggers, headed by Ruby, the current President. We also had the other officers and members of the board that day that I had the chance to meet, again. I have met them through Ruby and Joan, but did not know that they were the officers of CDO Bloggers. 

I went there early and was one of the few people who arrived first. I was already nervous, because I do not know what questions will be asked since its my first time to do this, join a community of Bloggers. And mind you, the people who are here are the best in what they do. I am simply a tiny dot compared to their achievements. Anyway, when the rest of the officers and fellow newbies came in, I felt at ease and joked around with them.

To to tell you honestly, it was one of the best interviews I have had in my entire life. It was because it did not feel like an interview, it felt more like a gathering of friends with a common goal! Add to the fact that the me…
