|Chai for Chalk Magazine|
I know this is kinda late, like, a week late but it's better late than never, as they say. Hehe! And in here, I bring you my event review of the recently concluded Chalk Fashion Rocks 2011.
CHALK Magazine, the leading youth magazine in the country, celebrated their 11th anniversary last October 15, 2011 at the Ronac Art Center, Greenhills. The event featured a number of boutique shops and online shop stalls, perfect for the teens and those young at heart. From shoes, to clothes, dresses, accessories, perfumes, etc; name it, you have it! The programme proper was hosted by well-renowned youth icons, DJ Andi Manzano and Dino Imperial. (Follow them on Twitter: twitter.com/andimanzano and twitter.com/dinoi88. One of the event's highlights was the Fashion Show of course, and this part showcased UAAP and NCAA heartthrobs; as well as the event partner's chosen talents - VXI Models. Clothes were sponsored by SM Fashion. Any youth-event wouldn't be complete without the fun in dancing so at night, DJ's played and attendees partied 'til they drop! LOL. It was surely an eventful weekend!
This main blog photo I used is not connected in any way to Chalk Magazine's promotions or ads for that matter. I personally just edited this to promote the event, which is co-presented by VXI.
Me and my friends and colleagues from VXI have surely enjoyed it. I did not get a chance to roam around a lot. I came from my shift that afternoon and did not get a chance to sleep anymore so I rushed, took a shower, and zoomed right into the event to at least catch my dear co-employees grace the ramp! I was successful in that manner! More photos under the cut ... READ MORE!

The featured stores were lovely. I collected cards of the store owners so I can just simply purchase from them some other time. It was bothersome for me to carry a lot of things around hehe. We already brought along two (2) copies of Chalk Magazine October issue (Kim Chiu on the cover) as our entrance tickets so ... no more package for me hehe. I loved the nostalgic look of this one booth (gosh I forgot which one is it - anyone knows?) so me and Fafi posed in front of the mirror. Hehe. I added effects using my phone's app - Pixl-r-omatic. I love the sepia-style I chose and the glammed up look! :)

|VXI Ad Feature: |
Music Lovers, Sports & Photography Enthusiasts, Toy Collection & Cosplay Hobbyists ...
I will write up about each feature in this blog as well so stay tuned!
And now, for the event proper! Woot!
Dino and Andi were lively hosts, I have to say. Despite myself being sleepy already, they continued the hype and made it much more fun for all the attendees. They started off with some games co-sponsored by VXI as well. I think it was a cool game with a twist ... it's an old-school pass-on game but this time, they have to pass on the VXI Logo and whoever hits the last stop when the music pauses, the person is out of the game! Exciting prizes were given away including Sodexho Gift Passes and from the event sponsors, like Samsung Galaxy Y phones (I know my Samsung Galaxy S2's much superior though bwahahaha). It was really amazing! I wish I could've participated! LOL.

After a few more games, the Fashion Show started.
SM Fashion. Our models (nope, I ain't one of them haha) come from our carefully-selected employees who embody the VXI-personality from a wide-range of groups and accounts - from agent, to management, to support groups, reception, and more!
Another highlight of the event features the handsome cagers from UAAP and NCCA teams. I do not memorize their names (and those from VXI hehe) so it's an assignment for me! I promise to write them here once I gathered their names ... probably this week once I get back to the office where we publicly posted this ad all throughout the company. (^_^) (Note to self: post their names once I complete the roster - I will edit my post with their names soon! Hehe).
