The other highlight of MSMW for me was seeing our WhenInManila.com Senior Writer, Jason Cruz of MRM Worldwide and jsncruz.com, moderate a talk and speak on stage. It was good to know that WhenInManila.com was developing world class talent in our field.
One of my favorite panels was the celebrity panel below. I liked how these celebrities talked about how to properly engage with fans and also about the power of finding influential people to carry your message online. It was also cool to meet celebrity bloggers from all over Asia, namely Miss Malini from India! She’s a radio DJ and TV show host there as well as one of the top bloggers, getting over half a million unique views per month on her blog MissMalini.com

Then of course, it was my turn to talk… Here’s my notes from my slides… I swear my talk was more insightful than it seems!
I think I got a standing ovation from my talk… or that might have just been in my head… Either way it was such a fun experience!
The event ended that night with a gala and Malaysian Blogger Awards.
In the end, it was a priceless experience! I was so jealous that Malaysia got to have international events like this! I’m hoping the Philippines can catch up soon with more
Here I am with my Filipino co-speakers at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport… But I think we were doing the wrong sign….
Again, it was such an honor to be invited to speak at this and represent WhenInManila.com + the Philippines! Great job to the organizers, the presenters, speakers and social media team behind Malaysia Social Media Week MSMW 2013! It was really one of the most well organized events I’ve been to!
When In Manila, be sure to check out our neighbors and see what cool social media events they have! You’re sure to meet lots of cool new people along the way!
Oh and When In Malaysia, do try to check out their Social Media Week events!
