Last Thursday, August 2, 2012, San Miguel Corporation invited bloggers to the launch of the new SMB 7,107 Celebrations Website (http://smb7107celebrations.com.ph) at the Adarna Food and Culture Restaurant.
With 7,1707 beautiful islands and our country’s diverse regional and cultural traditions, there are really so many ways to enjoy and celebrate in the Philippines for both tourist and locals alike.
The Philippines offers a wonderful array of fascinating destinations, which basically is what SMB 7,107 Celebrations website would like to share with the rest of the world.
SMB 7,107 Celebrations allows you to explore a variety of awesome places and fun-filled activities and arrange them into an itinerary for your next holiday travel, vacation or just a week-end retreat.
Bloggers were invited the launch held at Adarna Restaurant in Kalayaan Avenue. We arrived their around 6:30 pm and had dinner and some drinks. Since it was a San Miguel Beer Event, of course the event will not be complete without the Philippines’ most famous beer. The mood was festive. Bloggers were requested to wear something to reflect Filipino festivities as part of the theme of the launch.
