WordCamp Philippines 2008: Winners and Bloopers

When I was first asked by Juned if I can consider giving a talk for Wordcamp, I replied with “What the hell is that?” I misheard “world” for “word” and thought it was some big gathering (camping- with bonfire and shit like that) of people in an open field to protest global warming or poverty.

I later became unstupid when he explained that it’s a huge wordpress event for its users, with informative talks and fun games and shiny prizes. And who doesn’t like shiny prizes? So I said, sure, without even knowing what my topic would be. I mean, what if they had asked me to talk about CSS or plug-ins or other related stuff, what do you think would happen to me?

Fast forward to yesterday, September 6.

I went to CSB where the event was held, ready with my presentation about Video Blogging. I haven’t really done that much Funny+Sexy vlogs but the topic is something close to my heart because uhhh… I do videos for a living.

with AJ, who’s holding an Ernie toy lol and the awesome Blogie, one of the organizers

So I saw a lot of friends there, some new faces but overall, ’twas a nice crowd. I was impressed by the set-up and the volunteers were very helpful (here’s a shout-out to Vince who helped me in my preparation). After the whole introduction, we were asked to go to the rooms of our chosen speakers. Of course, we went to Jayvee‘s at room 409. All 12 or so of us have been waiting there for about 15 minutes already when we were informed that we were at the wrong room. BLOOPER NUMBER 1. LOLZ.

  1. It was good meeting you, however briefly, and thank you for using WordPress.com. πŸ™‚ Best of luck with everything. (And I’m curious what the bloopers were.)

    @ Matt
    Oh hi! Thanks for reading this post! And yes, it was a delight meeting you! See you around.

  3. Sounds like a lot of fun! πŸ™‚

    You look so charming πŸ˜€ It’s been awhile since I’ve seen any of your pictures!


  4. I’m super glad you agreed to do your talk, Kring! Feel bad though, that I wasn’t able to at least drop in. Next time you’ll say yes to me again, ok? πŸ˜‰

  5. “Yanno, I like that guy (but not in a Ria Jose kinda way)”

    — what does this mean? πŸ˜€ hahaha!

    @ Megumi
    Awww.. Really? Thank you! And yes, dear, it was a lot of fun!

    @ Jayvee
    Uhm, well… You know that thing that happened on stage yesterday. Lolz. Peace, ria!

  7. I really enjoyed the talk, Kring! Buti na lang pumunta ako sa session. As I said on Plurk last time, “fun yet informative”! Haha. πŸ˜€ And I can’t forget that major blooper during the talk! πŸ˜›

    And at the time you approached me… Medyo nagulat pa ako. Akala ko sinupladuhan kita kaya medyo maikli yung usapan natin. Guess I’m overthinking again? Haha. Nice meeting you again, though. I’m glad that we talked, even for a minute. πŸ™‚

    @ The [Deranged] Writer
    Thank you! Was that someone special you were with yesterday? Also, to be honest with you, yeah, I thought sinungitan mo ko. You did anyway. So I was like “what’s wrong with him? He doesn’t want to talk to me?” and I didn’t talk to you anymore that whole day…

    @ Ruther
    Hi! Thanks for dropping by my blog and I’m glad you ha fun at wordcamp. Also, if you were referring to that girl in stripes *points to the picture above*, that’s not Phoebe.

    @ Jeric

    @ Juned

    @ Micamyx
