First of all, I like to say thanks to everyone who participated in the first bloggers event in SM Marikina, and I found out that there are many walk in participants and I think the number of participants nearly reach 200. Bloggers did a wifi testing and live blogging at the Cyberzone and 3rd floor near the food court, I came in late and just tested the wifi at the ground floor level with the rest of the bloggers. I just found out that the wifi is much faster in the 3rd floor, and a minimum wifi network is available in some areas of the mall, this activity will help SM Marikina to send more bandwidth for all internet users. I found out that SM Marikina is the 1st mall to have its own free wifi connection, and as the marketing people of SM says that they will put up free wifi hotspots in some malls in Manila and in Cebu. My conclusion after the test is that SM Marikina should power up more on the wifi hot spots, so that everyone can access it anytime and anywhere.
my video at the event
Each blogger who participated will pick up a raffle prize at the registration area, I got lucky to pick up the Microsoft cap, others got the jacket and some CDRs. Rockerfem.com won the ASUS laptop, its was a great day for her because it was her birthday on that day. Then after enjoying the free wifi, free coffee, free donuts and free chats with newly met friends, the SM marketing people told us that there will be another bloggers event coming this March 2009.
so stay tuned here in my blog for updates and announcement.
