Kim Chiu Mall Show, SM City Batangas

Equipped with my DSLR and laptop, I was ready to cover Kim Chiu’s mall show (for a usual WOWBatangas task) one Sunday afternoon. I arrived early then so I decided to watch a movie before the 5pm event coverage. But even before reaching the story’s climax, I received this message from Ms. Lina, the then Marketing Officer: “Hey, Gerlie do you know someone who could host Kim Chiu mall show later at 5pm?” Because it’s already 4pm, i replied: “I know some friends in Lipa who could do the job perfectly but they’ll be late for its already 4. If you’ll find no one who could do the hosting later, well i guess i can do it.”

And so, look at the photo and guess what happened next… Aha, I hosted the event!

National Book Reading Day

Hosting this event was quite tough for me. Aside from the usual emcee tasks, the client also required me to do some story tellings before super kulit graders. Catching kids attention was really the hardest. Good thing those story books include visual presentations that kids enjoyed.

The event was National Book Reading Day headed by SM Supermalls and Vibal Publishing house. The audience were grade 1 and 2 pupils from different public elementary schools in Batangas City.

I didn’t know I would enjoy such task (story telling). Maybe because I love kids and of course, I love to see them happy and smiling.
