Whenever a company follows the changing demands of the people, I feel happy. I was invited last Friday to grace the event of Manila Bulletin. I was told that they would be launching something good. I had a hunch that it was about them going 3D.
As far as I know, ever since September 24, 2010, Manila Bulletin has innovated and improved their newspaper vastly. They finally embraced the rapid changes in technology and went 3D! Wow!! Who would ever thought that one of the most trusted newspapers would go 3D? I actually don’t know any other newspaper who has done that. So kudos to Manila Bulletin for being so innovative! It pays to be the 1st. I was really impressed!
In the event, there were replica of the newspaper scattered around the place. Those photos on our left are actually 3D photos, explains why we are wearing 3D glasses. It was really an awesome sight to see!
Manila Bulletin went all out for the event. Providing great food for those who attended the event… Rarely would you notice the food especially for a newspaper event, but the variety of interesting and high end offerings was really something that you just had to take notice. Just look at the mouthwatering pictures of what was served!
And don’t forget about the awesome music that was provided too…
…and great entertainment! Everyone was so game. There were even dare sessions where some of the bloggers had to dance, 3 guys even took their shirt off too hahaha! Well, it paid off! They were given iPods as prizes!
Manila Bulletin goes way back to the 1900 and has been one of the leading newspaper since then in the Philippines. The newspaper venturing into 3D isn’t the only thing that they’ve done. They also created a Manila Bulletin application just for the iPad! I wish they would also create one for the iPhone because I don’t have an iPad 😛
As they shared with us this new offering from Manila Bulletin, they gave an iPad for raffle! Surprisingly, the host suddenly changed the mechanics and turned it into another dare game. I’m not a fan of dares and never will be. Anyhow, I’m glad a blogger friend won the challenge and he got himself a new 16GB iPad! Congratulations Stonibert! This is me with the lucky blogger! I’m sure, he will download the Manila Bulletin application onto his sparkling new gadget 🙂
Once again, congratulations to Manila Bulletin for a job well done with the launch event, for the innovative and gutsy move that is their 3D newspaper, and for the decades of serving the Filipino people through their dedication to provide up to date information and news!
