After the Soyami Bloggers Night event last Wednesday, I decided to try to be more healthy. The night was not just an awarding of the Soyami Blogging Contest winners, but also a celebration of healthy lifestyle. It was held in Tourne’ in The Fort Strip, and as soon as I arrived in the venue – here’s what greeted me.
It was my first time in Tourne’ but I had read good reviews about the place. This is the restaurant that focuses on offering Slow Food (opposite of Fast Food). Chef Sandralyn Hataway even prepared special menu for us during the event.
But before we go to the food, let me start with the Appetizer – and appetizer I meant Marc Nelson who hosted the event. I admit that he is one of the reasons why I went to the event (evil smile here). The first time I met him was during the Yahoo OMG Awards. And I told him he is my crushie. I guess he’s used to hearing that line. With a body and face like that, I am sure he is used to girls’ attention. But of course, I behaved that night 🙂 He is witty, charming and a natural. He is such a great host that he handled even technical difficulties with flair and style.
Unfortunately, Rovilson Fernandez was not able to join that night. According to Marc, due to high demand on Soyami snacks, Rovilson has to work overtime in the plant to roll and mash those soya beans. Of course, he was just kidding. He was busy taping for Ang Pinaka (one of my favorite shows in Q11!)
Marc admitted that he is a Soyami addict. He said it was like an answered prayer when he first encountered the good snack. And it is nice that he is not just an endorser but a believer and ambassador of the product.
Before the awarding, a dietitian from Fitness First Club talked about health and fitness, and how we can attain both. And to ensure that we will eat without guilt that night, Tourne’ served us with dishes incorporated with Soyami products.
During the entire event, they raffled off alot of prizes. Too bad I didn’t win any. I wish they included a date with Marc Nelson as the grand prize.
There were also friends from the TreeHugger (I featured them in my Blogapalooza post) and FaceOne who joined the event.
Now it is time to announce the winners.. and the winners are: (drum roll please..)
(I have to share, that Marc even replied to all of our tweets and mentions! He is so cool and nice :))
