Corregidor International Half-Mary 2012 Full Details
Last Thursday was yet another exciting moment for bloggers attending the Corregidor International Half-Marathon press conference organized by Big, Big, Big, Inc., Sun Cruises and Soleus, as we were toured along Manila Bay with one of Sun Cruises’ ships that was converted into a conference venue. The race event which will happen on December 1, 2012, were discussed in detail by the organizers, ended with sumptuous dinner, acoustic music and a raffle.
Too bad for a few attendees who have seasickness, they got to bear two hours on board the ship, hahaha! It was also a funny experience for me to have a buffet dinner there, I have to hold on the buffet table and stand, with feet wide apart, while food is being served, and went back to my table balancing a plate and a cup on both hands, because rocking motion was felt from most of the time. :p We stayed the rest of that evening dining on the promenade deck while enjoying the night view of Manila Bay and the skyline along Roxas Boulevard. Kudos to the people behind this launch and thank you!
