The year 2009 had been an interesting year for me, especially the opportunities and growth in the social media networking and publicity of my photoblog. To sum it up, an invitation to a Year End Blogger Hat-py Party organised by 24seven, a social media company (that I had the opportunity to work together with during the recent Snap Snap Photography Outing) in Singapore.
The theme was Hat-Py and the bloggers had to attend with a crazy hat ! I was stressed out because I couldn’t find my Aussie Bush hat and was busy with my actual day wedding shoot for my friend over 2 days before the Hat-py Party. Luckily I was able to borrow a cowboy hat from my colleague Viktor and avoided the “punishment” for being a naughty blogger attending the party without a hat !!
Venue was the Glass Hall at Singapore Art Museum, a great place with history and significance, great atmosphere and many bloggers of different backgrounds, interests and age band 🙂 Reached there slightly early before the official registration with and met the lovely folks of 24seven, Claudia, Diana, Ee Von and finally met Kris in person for the first time! While waiting for the event to start, viewed the paintings in the Glass Hall before going for the food.
Event officially started with Benjamin being the Master of Ceremony and Claudia giving the welcome speech, a game of “tasks” allowing us to visit the exhibition gallery behind the Hall, lucky draws, bingo and band performances by Black Diamond Ninjas and Only After Coffee, 2 great bands that provided awesome live music and songs to the bloggers ! Took the chance to know more bloggers and nice knowing you folks there ! Some great prizes for the lucky draw by kind sponsors, however, I didn’t win anything……
Hat-py Party came to an end with group photos of the bloggers and it continued with lots of photo taking 🙂 More photos of the event can be viewed here in my Flickr !
I would like to dedicate a Big THANK YOU to the lovely folks of 24seven for organising the Year End Blogger Hat-py Party ! Well done folks !
