Win a Trip to Boracay from Cadbury Dairy Milk

The Cadbury Bloggers’ Chocoholic Night event last week was so fun that I can only wish other events I go to next will be half as fun. I actually had an appointment later that night. But did not mind the delay because we were having the time of our lives! Well, whoever conceptualized the whole thing did a great job. 🙂

It was Cadbury’s Joy Shots and Win a Trip to Boracay promo launch. The event allowed for us to get the feel of how authentic fun feels like which makes us get the whole idea of what the promotion is all about.

All of us, being wired for relationships, cherish moments with friends and loved ones deeply. Quality time is something we look forward to having with people who mean a lot to us. I know I do! This is why I believe it is important to get away from time to time and just hang out with them. And the great news is that happy bonding moment can turn into an exciting round trip to Boracay that you and your friends will enjoy and remember together! What fun! I’ll head you over to the promo mechanics in a bit. Meanwhile, allow me to share with you some photos from the event. 🙂
