We all love trade shows! Trade shows are very educational and present opportunities for significant professional connections. Yes siree, whether you go as an individual or as a family, trade shows can be very entertaining as well as very educational both for you and your kids. Trade shows can be attended just for pleasure or for business reasons, or as a combination of business and pleasure. People of all ages enjoy the fair-like atmosphere, and getting free samples of various products.
I especially like the free taste test portion of trade shows hi hi! Well, whether you admit it or not, you do too! right? :-p! Trade shows are also a great place to meet new people and exchange ideas.
When I went to the 5th edition of the PIFBEX in PICC on its last day last Sunday, March 4, 2012. I bumped into my blogger friend Lloyd and his other blogger friends Dan and Joshua. We decided to scout every nook and corner of the event together.
We were walking along the aisle when suddenly we were stopped by the organizers. They asked me if my companions were my students. Whew, ma’am na ako ay! Ehem, mga anak ko po sila. Toink. I told you Kuya, I really have to dye my hair so people would not mistaken me to be that old =)). Hu hu calling the attention of Dr. Vicky Belo pakita mo po sa kanila kaya mo ako e transform. Hmp! Porque mataba ako e napapagkamalan na nila ako:(
Anyway to make the story short, Dan and Joshua were enlisted as contestants to the Cocktail Mixing Competition upon my prodding (and Lloyd too). With barely two hours to prepare before the contest. They scampered off excitedly for ingredients and other beverage to be mix with the alcohol.
With no bartending background, no preparation, no glasses, no uniform, no everything. This two talented boy scouts “Laging Handa”Joshua and Dan finish the contest with flying colors! I salute you guys! Wooooooooooooot Galeng! Bloggers turned Accidental Bartenders! Always remember it is not winning the game that matters but being in the game!
“To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself. ~Soren Kierkegaard”
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain quotes

Joshua preparing a tasty beverage. I think being an accidental bartender is what they do best. I admire this two! For me they have an outstanding performance. Imagine walang preparation saan ka pa!
Congratulations to Joshua and Dan!
