I had the opportunity to attend the first AyosDito.ph iBall--a whole night party event for bloggers last June 8, 2012 at COWO Asia in Ortigas, Pasig City. The occasion was fun-filled with lots of prizes and surprises while emphasizing the ‘new’ Pinoy Lifestyle that continues to shape Filipino culture.

Hosted by Dj Tony Toni of Magic 89.9 and Ms. Van (short for Vanessa) of AyosDito, the event centered about how we, Filipinos have become insightful or I would rather use the term adaptive into ‘what’s new’ and ‘what’s hot’ not just in social networking sites like Twitter or Facebook but also into buying and selling online!

Jon Santico, General Manager of 701 Search Inc. the company behind the site, welcomed and acknowledged the presence of all bloggers who made it in the occasion. He also made a few words about the real aim of the gathering during his opening remark. 
“Ayos Dito I- Ball is a blogger event that celebrates the fun and unique Filipino lifestyle, that is reflective of how people buy and sell online. Buying and selling online with AyosDito.ph is free, easy and hassle-free, just how we Pinoys like it.” He added, “This event is also to say thank you to the community closest to our hearts. Bloggers who have experienced using the website have shared their hassle –free shopping experience online, and were instrumental in bringing other users to our site.” 
Tanya Cabbab, AyosDito.ph’s marketing manager shared while welcoming the bloggers
“Aside from having the chance to get to know the AyosDito team and learn more about the site and what were about. We hope everyone has a great time, simply hanging out with us and enjoying the food, the games and the raffle prizes.”

AyosDito.ph has been known to be one of the most preferred online classified ads in the Philippines. Designed for Pinoys by Pinoys, the site has just been awarded last year as the No. 1 Classified Ads website by Digital Filipino Search Profile Index. 

Meanwhile, the food served at the Ayos Dito I-Ball was a twist on regular Pinoy comfort food. Tempura Quail Eggs (a modern take on street food favorite – Kwek-kwek), Mexico meets Pampanga’s best sisig tacos, Chicken Pate on Fita a childhood favorite, The simple Tuyo, glammed up in a Tuyo Pasta, oh so yummy Angus Corned Beef Pan de sal. The iced tea was a refreshing honeymansi by Nestea. A special treat was the kakanin ice cream in 3 flavors – Champorado, Mangga’t Suman and Sapin-Sapin ice cream by Sebastian’s.
