Gadgets Galore and Tech Talk at SM Cyberzone Tech Sale Event in SM Fairview

20130831-071322.jpgThe first few stores that I check out when going to SM Malls are gadget and game stores in SM Cyberzones. So, I was actually psyched when SM Supermalls invited me to speak at the SM Cyberzone Tech Sale event in SM Fairview yesterday.

I love checking out the latest gadgets, trying them out, and scouting for the best deals. What’s even more exciting was that I got the chance to hang out with awesome tech and lifestyle bloggers, Mark Macanas from, Marco Dennis Esplana from, and actor and blogger, Chuckie Dreyfus.

Each of us gave a short talk about our experience in tech blogging and technology in general.

I talked about the importance of unboxing and video reviews when buying a new gadget. And I also shared my own experience in creating YouTube videos.

Chuckie talked about how parents should embrace technology and use it to its full advantage.


Marco shared the benefits of tech blogging and how it can help improve lifestyle.


Last but not the least, Mark Macanas shared his exciting and inspiring journey in the tech blogging world.


Jay, the host of the event, also gave us time to check out the different booths. We had to choose our top three favorite gadgets. I chose Acer’s smartphone, Dell’s Ultrabook, and Buffalo’s wireless external hard drive.

Buffalo displayed their routers and hard drives. My favorite was the wireless external hard drive, which allows you to connect up to eight devices.

My favorite part was the game! Mark, Marco, Chuckie, and I had to find three gadgets based on the specific instructions of the host. We only had one minute to find the gadgets! It was really fun, and at the end of the game, I was already starting to sweat.
