Ahoy to all the geeks who attend the last Tech Island PLDT SME Event last November 17, 2014 at Pico de Loro, Nasugbu, Batangas! You guys surely had fun well including me! Although the event is just invite only for selected employees, company representatives, bloggers and other media people - I'll tell a story of what happened during the event.


When we entered the venue I was struck by the view! I love the Pico de Loro - especially the surroundings. What a view! If I'm not mistaken this place is pretty exclusive to members, but PLDT is awesome enough to held an event here :)

Wow! A perfect place to held the Tech Island event!
Grace Lee and her partner started the event at the Plenary Hall. They introduced the audience on what Tech Island is all about.

Next is the opening remarks from Mr. Jerameel Azurin the AVP head of SME Marketing PLDT SME Nation
