DOT - MTV + Happy Slip? YEHEY!
Tuesday, December 23, 2008
"You are invited to an exclusive sneak peek into DOT and MTV's plans for 2009. Be entertained by Hapyy Slip before an intimate cocktail cum dinner with Tourism Secretary Ace Durano on December 17, Wednesday, 6pm at the 'O' Lounge Alchemy Bar, Julia Vargas, Ortigas."
This was the message I received via text from Kankan of Yehey last December 16 at 11:04 AM. At first, I was hesitant to go because my friends didn't get an invites and was worrying at the same time because I'm not familiar with Ortigas, hahahah... Anyway, I contacted Jonel through plurk if it's ok to join him going to Alchemy Bar. He said YES so I went.
We're just on time when we arrived despite the heavy traffic.
Department of Tourism and MTV has tied-up together with Christine Gambito a.k.a. Happy Slip in focusing not only the finest places in the Philippines but also our musically enriched culture.
Through a candid gathering, Secretary Durano made a few plans for next year known. The biggest of which is a culminating event to take place sometime in November entitled Rockipelago -- a massive gathering of Fil-Am musical performers like Nicole Scherzinger of Pussycat Dolls, etc etc.
From February 2009 'till November 2009, DOT, MTV and Happy Slip will be in and around our country bursting with events and promos.
Here's MTV interview with Tourism Sec. Ace Durano.
